Number of swap partners:10

This is a swap for postcards! And when I do something I do it big! So this swap is for 10 partners that you will send 1 postcard to. That means 10 different locations! All being sent out at the same time so this should be pretty easy.

I know that 10 partners/10 postcards seems like a lot so if you have doubts that you will not full fill this then PLEASE don't sign up. This is a simple postcard swap. I thought it was a good idea to do it before the holiday cards come!

Send 10 postcards out. You will get 10 postcards. Please send naked (no envelope) with a stamp and a little note or fact about where you live. This is open to international people. 4.0 or higher! Newbies welcome with filled out profile!

Please feel free to ask any questions!

Please, do not laugh because of my question, but I am a newbie by here. I would like to know how partners are assigned. Does the coordinator has power to select who sends to whom? Thanks

doublekissable 09/19/2008 #

Swap-bot assigns the partners. Not the coordinator. Your welcome!

handmade cool?

doublekissable 09/24/2008 #

It can be either handmade or bought. Something nice!

I work as a mental health professional and I have quite a collection of post cards decorating my office wall and my client love them, so please if you send to me, please keep it a happy theme.

suepier 10/ 6/2008 #

When are the 10 partners assigned? I would like to get started as soon as possible.

doublekissable 10/ 7/2008 #

The partners are assigned after the sign up date.

celine 10/10/2008 #

hi there i have just joined this group, can some one tell me how it works? Thanks celine

doublekissable 10/10/2008 #

The partners will be automatically assigned by the computer. There is no way to control who gets who for partners, sorry. They will be assigned after the signup date, which is Oct. 27th for this swap. Thank you everyone for joining!! This is going to be a great swap!

I would love to get any postcards that are addressed to Barb DeVoll (my mom and I have the same address) and have the words "salamander cannonball" on them! And if you write your swap-bot name and the name of the swap on it (even better if you can avoid using the word swap) I'll know exactly who to thank! If you don't want to do that I am fine with that too, no pressure!

ravenz 10/15/2008 #

I love stamps and I do collect them so this is a great way in collecting stamps and postcards in the same time. I love the classic mini car and if there is a postcard with that car would be great ! I love to know where you are from as well !

Please take a look at Landscape Postcards and join!

I would love to recieve postcard about city at night thank you

pmking11 10/18/2008 #

are these postcards to be purchased? artsy? based on the city you live in? from anywhere? handmade?

sorry, i'm sure my questions are silly - but i'm just trying to get a handle on what to do. i've been tons of places lately - but i've passed up buying postcards - not knowing what we're going for here.

doublekissable 10/20/2008 #

Can be either store bought or your own photograph! No theme for this swap so it can be of whatever you would like it to be. I think postcards of wherever you have been is fantastic! Just write a little note on it as to why you picked it or something about it. Thanks!

doublekissable 10/20/2008 #

JUST A REMINDER: If you are new please make sure you have a complete FULL profile or you will be banned. Just write a little something about yourself, what you like/don't like, and what you would like to receive or swap!

AprilShowers 10/23/2008 #

I hope I can join. I'm a newbie. My profile isn't very long but it does give more than my address. I'd love handmade postcards, but store bought is also good.

doublekissable 10/27/2008 #

I changed the send date to Nov 4th. Everyone should have them mailed out by then. This swap has been up for awhile now. I have all my postcards ready to address and mail out!

Lake 10/27/2008 #

I don't write out postcards until I read the profiles of the people I am paired up with in case they like a particular postcard. If they really like something, I try to match them with the postcard. But I take postcard collecting more seriously than most people. :)

tmforjc 10/27/2008 #

Please send us postcards from where you are from if possible. We are studyings the seven continents this year and would love to use them for our studies. It doesn't matter where you are from. If this isn't possible, don't worry. Send whatever you have as long as it is nice.

stephad 10/28/2008 #

aw, i got matched with someone i just had in a postcard swap a few weeks ago! just lucky i guess.

bcdebinbc 10/29/2008 #

Sending out the pcs today, have clicked sent above, some are homemade, some store bought, if you don't receive them in a reasonable time coming from Canada, lmk and I'll make it right for you. Enjoy :)

lizanne 10/29/2008 #

Eek, I ran out of stamps! Will send the rest tomorrow.

doublekissable 11/ 2/2008 #

I got my postcard from naynay on Friday and I just wanted to say that Mount St. Helens looks beautiful...even with all that ash spouting out. It would be scary living near it though eh?

jennadobson03 11/ 4/2008 #

cwlanc2 11/ 5/2008 #

Caam 11/ 5/2008 #

Sorry about that folks, I forgot to come in and hit "send" after I dropped them in the box yesterday afternoon!

Sarah28 11/ 5/2008 #

I sent out cards from Disneyland (Ca) - if you received it - it's probably me! Sorry - I thought I had them all labeled!

doublekissable 11/17/2008 #

And will not be allowed in any of the future swaps I have. I am sorry about them I did go through the list as best as I could! Thanks for your patience and for joining this swap!! Kristin

ArtGirl1 11/18/2008 #

Did not receive 2 cards. How long should you wait before posting about receiving them?

They were supposed to be sent out Nov 4th, today is Nov. 18th.


penpallingfool 11/18/2008 #

Artgirl1 I sent mine out on the 31st and everyone else got theirs but she didnt even pm me to say she didnt get it just put a 1 there what a chance I had swap bot second thoughts I thought it was a good place but not so sure now... thanks Leann

lyninoz 11/19/2008 #

thank you " justme" for the postcard..you being the angel for yvonne 1968.

regards Linda ( lyninoz )

doublekissable 11/21/2008 #

Southernbelle just mailed hers out today.

You should wait at least two weeks after the sent date, especially if it's international, to be sure it isn't floating in the mail somewhere.

Also, there has been quite a few people who found postcards tucked into their newspaper or magazine. Be sure to thoroghly check your end before rating.

You can always go back and change your rating. If you later receive the package or postcard then go back and change it. Most people would like a notice and/or second chance to make up for a low rating if you will let them! Remember you are both a swapper and a swappie. (What goes around comes around) Think if it were me...

ArtGirl1 11/24/2008 #

Penpallingfool: I am sorry about the "1" rating, but to date (11-24-08) I have not received anything. I do not get newspapers or magazines to my mailbox address.

I would not want to put a nasty comment on someone's board either. It is very unnecessary to post "so new ... rated a 1 without e-mailing me ... BEWARE"???!!!

I may be new to SwapBot, but I am not new to swapping. I've done it for about 6-7 years. USA and International. I know that an International Post Card (or "first class mail international) cost 94 cents.

I will wait more time to receive items on my next swaps. I expect that if someone is LATE SENDING OUT, they should contact the people they are sending to. Not the other way around.

I'm sorry to say I won't change the rating because of the nasty public comment that Penpallingfool left for me.
