Comment: 2/17/09: I received this cd. It was approximately 17 months late, but I did get it. It was a nice cd as well.
original: Did not receive swap. No response from this swapper. **updated 1-12-09 to follow: Did not receive message or cd from this swapper. I contacted the swapper today via swap-bot after the response to the rating I left in 2007. I noted that I would happily change rating if she sends the cd even though it has been over a year ago. I have not logged into swap-bot or participated due the high number of no-sends I encountered but I do get all communications/notices such as the one I received today.
Comment: It appears you owed several people cards and packages for some time, and I greatly respect your efforts to rectify the matter. Cheers to anyone who tries to improve his/her karma. If you'd just been a tiny bit late in sending the card to me, I'd have changed the rating to a 5. However, you were a year late with this card, and it looks like you had some issues with other swaps, so I feel in good conscience I can only give you a 3.
Comment: It took a month and two days after the send by date to get to me. Even for international that seems unacceptable. When my grandma sends to me from Europe it normally takes 7 days, sometimes a week and a half. Not a month and two days!
This also didn't meet the swap requirements as there was the option to say if there was a tea you didn't want to receive, I had it both on the comments section, and on my profile that I didn't want any green tea, and I still received green tea.
The packaging was poor too. The box was recycled which I have no problem with, but the advertising all over it made it very difficult for the postal employees to read the address. Next time use a label or piece of paper so the address is readable. And the parcel is better able to get to it's intended recipient.
I appreciate that you did reply when I asked for information as to why this swap was so tardy, however, if you are going to send a swap late it is more polite to let the person know than to leave them wondering.
I hate having to leave a bad rating, this it the first one I've ever had to do.
Response: Sorry for the green tea. I read this, but I forget it when I packed your swap.
Comment: I finally received the package today. The send date was 6/4. The custom ticket said sent 6/25/07. The box on the inside had a custom ticket attached to it saying sent to her from the USA on 5/29/07. I wish she would of been honest with me. I am very understanding.
Please let me know if the package donÂ´t arrives you in the next days. Then I will send you a new one.
Comment: It did take a great deal of time to get here. So please be patient with the international swappers. She sent me a letter stating that she was on Holiday with kids and couldn't get the Sun. paper which is one of the requirments of the swap. The date the swap started was the 6th and had to be sent by the 18th. There was plenty of time from the time that she signed up for the swap to the time that she sent it even if she went on Holiday. I'm sorry too Sandra.
Comment: I ticked that the card didn't meet the swap requirements because it wasn't made for the swap (it's commercially printed) and I really don't see how three naked girls sitting with their feet dangling in water has anything to do with your sign of Gemini.
Comment: thanks for the postcard. I've ticked didn't meet requirements because the swap said "make a postcard that incorporates your astrological sign." The card wasn't "made" and it didn't incorporate your sign.
