Comment: Update 9/25/19: I imagine you're responding 10 months later to get into a swap? Perhaps your "journal" that arrived 7 months late may have been "new" but it consisted of a composition book with 15 minimally "embellished" pages. For example, one page had [only] a 2" x 3" journal card glued on it. Several had [only] 3 or 4 small stickers on them. One was [only] bordered with washi tape. I'm sure it was all new stuff, but the swap guidelines were *covered* pages, and this journal did not meet guidelines. I'm glad to see you've got your rating up, and congrats that you seem to be keeping up with your swaps. Your flake cum "make up" was the one that completely turned me off swap-bot, so it's nice to see you're taking it seriously now. Update 11/20/18: Re-rating to a 3 because I did finally receive something. However, I would have rated a 3 if received on time anyway as journal did not follow guidelines of "covering" pages. I understand that you just tried to hastily get something, anything out the door to make up for this swap, but if this is how you regularly do magpie journals, perhaps magpie journals are not for you. 5/12/18: Nothing yet received a month after deadline, and no response to message sent almost two weeks ago. Hope all is well. Will gladly re-rate once I receive.
Response: I sent NEW stuff, didn't ask enough questions.
Comment: I got your letter today. Thank you for sending it finally. :)
Response: There was a postal strike that happened AFTER I sent the letter. Lots of people on swap bot were understanding, especially since I posted something on my profile except for two people. This was one.
