I HAVE BEEN GONE FROM SWAP-BOT FOR ABOUT 9 MONTHS DUE TO A MOVE FROM ONE STATE TO ANOTHER. I SPENT ABOUT A MONTH WITH A FAMILY MEMBER BEFORE MOVING INTO MY APARTMENT. SHORTLY AFTER MOVING INTO MY APARTMENT, COVID-19 HIT AND BECAUSE OF THE KINDS OF GUIDELINES SET FORTH IN THE STATE I MOVED TO, I WAS RESTRICTED TO MY APARTMENT FOR ABOUT 6-WEEKS BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO START GOING OUT. HOWEVER, I WAS IN THE GROUP THAT COULD GET COVID-19 EASILY AND SO I CONTINUED TO REMAIN INDOORS. I ALSO DID NOT DO SWAP-BOT BECAUSE I WAS NOT ABLE TO GET TO THE POST OFFICE. BEFORE COVID-19 HIT, I HAD COMPLETED ALL THE SWAPS I HAD OUTSTANDING. THE LAST ONE I SENT WAS GOING TO EUROPE.
A FEW DAYS AGO I SIGNED UP FOR SEVERAL SWAPS THAT I WAS REALLY EXCITED ABOUT AS THEY WERE HISTORY ATCs. A DAY LATER I WAS BANNED BECAUSE OF SWAPS NOT COMPLETED OR LOW RATINGS. I WENT AND LOOKED ABOUT WHAT WERE NOT COMPLETED OR LOW RATINGS. I FOUND THAT THE POCKET LETTER, THE LAST SWAP I SENT BEFORE THE VIRUS HIT AND EVERYTHING SHUT DOWN NEVER MADE IT TO MY PARTNER. I ALSO HAVE THREE 3s. THEY WERE DONE WAY BACK IN 2007 WHEN I JUST STARTED SWAP-BOT. I HAVE NEVER HAD ANOTHER 3. IF YOU LOOK AT MY OVER ALL RECORD, I COMPLETE MY SWAPS AND I RECEIVE A 5 OR A 5 w/A âť¤ď¸Ź. I WAS NEVER CONTACTED BY MY PARTNER ABOUT MY POCKET LETTER NOT MAKING IT TO ITS DESTINATION. I SENT A NOTE TO THE HOST OF HISTORY SWAP BUT I HAVE NOT RECEIVED A RESPONSE. I JUST GOT AN INPERSONAL NOTE ABOUT WHY I COULDN'T DO THE HISTORY ATCs. I ALSO SENT A NOTE TO MY PARTNER FOR THE POCKET LETTER. I SHARED THAT I WOULD MAKE IT AGAIN AND SEND IT AGAIN. I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING. AS OF 10/8/20 I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY RESPONSE AT ALL.
I DROPPED MYSELF FROM ALL THE SWAPS I HAD SIGNED UP FOR JUST A FEW DAYS AGO. I THINK FOR NOW I WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING AS THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS ALL HAPPENED. WHEN I FIRST STARTED OUT ON THIS SITE BACK IN 2007, SWAPPERS, HOSTS, AND OTHERS WERE MUCH MORE WILLING TO CHECK THINGS OUT, GIVE PEOPLE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT, ETC. I AM SORRY TO LEAVE THIS SITE BECAUSE I HAVE MANY FOND MEMORIES BUT I ALSO WILL NOT BE TREATED POORLY.
THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO WERE PART OF MY SWAPS I HOSTED, THOSE WHO INVITED ME TO SWAPS AND GROUPS, AND THOSE WHO BECAME FRIENDS.
