Last day to signup/drop:August 10, 2013

Number of swap partners:1

This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do. This is to help newbies get "real mail" ratings. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Very simply, just choose two things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

  • a letter on how you came to find swap bot
  • unused notecard with envelope
  • 5 stickers - none smaller than a US penny (about 3/4 inch or 2 cm)
  • unused postcard
  • puzzle - word search, crossword, sudoku - whatever one you like
  • photo you took (as long as it is clean!)
  • bookmark
  • 2 sheets of stationery
  • List of your top ten favorite books
  • List of your top ten favorite songs

By the way newbies, if you send more than two from the above list or you send two really tasteful ones, you have more of a chance of getting a heart.

What to do:

  1. Choose two things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline.

  2. A filled-out profile for newbies. You have to have a little bit about yourself on the profile. You also have to have signed on since you made your account before I assign partners. l ban if this is not done.

  3. For the experienced ones, your rating must be at least 4.8. I will ban if it is not.

  4. I will go through and ban as I see fit right before assigning partners. If you are banned and want to know why, please PM me.

  5. I will angel if need be. If you flake, you will be listed as a flaker and I will not allow you in any of my future swaps.

Are we allowed to send more than 2 from the list?

MrsSparkle 07/31/2013 #

@hayzeydayz yes!

AlyyLyn 08/ 5/2013 #

How do we know who we're going to assigned with?

jacquierae 08/ 6/2013 #

Ok- brand spankin' Newbie here (just came upon this site tonight and signed up!) Just making sure...I will get an email with the address of whom I am to send my pkg to by Aug 20th, correct?

jacquierae 08/ 6/2013 #

I'm so excited to do this but scared I'm gonna mess up LOL

pne 08/ 7/2013 #

@AlyyLyn and @jacquierae - on or after the 11th, the host @ladyofunicorns will press the button to assign partners.

You'll get an email notification with a link to this swap, and then on this page you'll find a link "See the partners you send to" (in the yellow box at the top right) to see the name and address of your partner.

So you won't get the address by email but you should get an email notification telling you to check the swap :)

Then you've got till the 20th to send out the package to your partner.

cookingbear 08/ 7/2013 #

Is the same partner sending to us or is it a secret santa type of arrangement? Should we post here when we've sent and received packages or is there somewhere else for that?

JenMcElveen 08/ 7/2013 #

@cookingbear its a computer generated pick so you will send to someone. The person that sends to you will be a different person.

You also don't need to post here when you send and receive. Again, up in the top right hand side square there will be options to click on when you send out your parcel. When you receive your parcel there will be an option to rate your partner. When you rate your partner, it will be noted that you received your end :) Hope that helps! :)

cookingbear 08/ 7/2013 #

So fun to see all these new swappers! I'm new too and am loving it!!!😊

ladyofunicorns 08/11/2013 #

I am so sorry but my roommate took her desk back and took apart the computer that I was using on the desk and I ended up having to buy a desk so I could use the computer again. She decided she wanted it back but not the computer at the moment...I can still use that but not on the floor...then to get the computer up and running again...

Thanks for being patient with me. I will be assigning partners soon.

ladyofunicorns 08/11/2013 #

@MrsSparkle @pne and @JenMcElveen - thanks so much for helping everyone in my absence! I really appreciate it. :)

xsugarycarnival 08/12/2013 #

I've already bought extra things for my person, based on their profile! ;) I hope they're going to love them!

MissMissy 08/12/2013 #

So, I'm a newbie. And I Hope i didn't mess this up but I already sent my items. Hopefully it's okay but I didn't put my ID on it. (I totally didn't think about it till now) is there another way i can let the person know.

ladyofunicorns 08/12/2013 #

@TeaCupKitteh the bookmark can be either. :)

@paperplaysusan at the top right is a link to click to get the partners you send to. :)

@xsugarycarnival I am sure they will! :)

@MissMissy you can pm them and let them know. :)

Daneen 08/19/2013 #

Whoever has me for partner, my address didn't stick when I changed it. If you sent to Empire Ave in Spokane, I probably won't get it. I haven't lived there in 5 years. I just noticed that it didn't reflect my correct address. :(
