I keep a binder with every TAG, WTA, and game I am in. When I receive a PM with address of winner I print it out and it goes in my todo list. I PROMISE that ALL prizes/tags will be sent within two weeks of getting your address. If you have NOT received a PM from me, or seen a post in thread that I have sent by that time PLEASE PM ME and I will double check my files!!
I rate based on the SWAP requirements! As long as you have sent on time, and followed the requirements you will get a 5! It is also possible to still get a 5 if you are a bit behind as long as you COMMUNICATE with me! I understand sometimes life just sneaks up on you!
Hearts are given to swappers that have exceeded my expectations on the swap. Where its obvious that time was spent making the item, or that the swapper read my profile. Extras are NOT required to earn a heart!
When I host a swap I try to give directions as clear as possible! If ever you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask me!!
I also check EVERY swappers profile, and will ask for clarifications when needed. If ever you see a swapper that is questionable in a swap I am hosting, please feel free to contact me about it!
I will ANGEL for swaps that I host. That does not mean "join my swaps bc you dont have to send anything". TRUST me, the flakers name will be dragged thru the mud on EVERY forum on swap-bot. No one will EVER swap with you again!
I join swaps that look fun to me, and that I know I can do. I WILL send on time. When life permits I will even send EARLY. My reputation on here means ALOT to me, and I will not do anything to tarnish it. I cant always send extras, but I ALWAYS try to exceed the requirements of the swaps. I spend ALOT of time on my homemade items, and ALWAYS try to base on profile when possible. IF you havent received from me, or you dont approve the quality of my swap please PM me and I will do what it takes to make things right with you
