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. This is a USA only swap. I do have an international version as well.

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.

i keep wanting to join these but i've been flaked on a few easy newbie swaps i've done in the past. ):

ladyofunicorns 07/22/2013 #

I totally understand that ju671ne. I have even got flaked on in some of my own newbie swaps.

I see that you want to get out of hosting swaps so if you close this one I would be open to a private swamp if you want.

Im a newbie to the site, but I can do this! Seems a bit better than postcrossing.

Sorry I just signed myself in and saw afterwards it is an swap for the USA. The link in the email to resign doesn't work.

what does flaked mean?

AprilShowers 08/10/2013 #

Dorine1982 you just need to click on the "drop from swap" button in the yellow box located in the upper right corner of this page. Labunnie, flaking is when a person doesn't fulfill her swaps. The negligent person who failed to send out the swap is called a flaker. The person who received nothing was flaked on. Ladyofunicorns, I would be willing to angel some swaps if necessary.

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.

Thanks so much for helping @AprilShowers !! And also for offering to angel. I hope it won't come to that but thanks so much for the offer.

@ladyofunicorns for some reason I totally thought profile surprise was on there... Any way you can stick that at the bottom of the list for the next one? I'm kinda bummed, because I had the perfect thing for my partner!

Guykickinit 08/17/2013 #

I done IT!!! Sent it today

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. :(

ladyofunicorns 08/19/2013 #

@takehimaway I will add that to the bottom of the list for the next one. I just never thought of it. :)

Guykickinit 08/20/2013 #

I just received one, I hope the one I sent arrives soon!

Daneen 08/21/2013 #
