Hello everyone! I love Halloween, obviously, it's my favorite time of the year. For this swap you will send your one partner kind of a halloween bag (it doesn't have to be a bag, you can just put your stuff in a halloween themed decorated evelope, or decorated paper bag, you get the idea), which will consist of edible stuff (chocolate, candy, tea, coffee, etc) and non edible stuff (halloween decorations, halloween themed scrapbooking stuff, stickers, postcards, books, dvds, cds, anything as long as it's halloween themed). It's sender's choice, but your should check your partner's profile for likes & dislikes. Minimum price should be about $10 (~8 euro) before shipping. I didn't set a minimum rating (it would be 5.00), but if you have a 1 or a 3 (or more) please send me a message explaining them before joining.

Edit: since no one bothers to explain their bad rating (and for me it means you didn't read or understand the swap description) & those who do have really bad ratings, I changed the minimum rating to 5.00. Feel free to host your own version with lower rating requirement/newbie friendly.

Sorry, but no newbies. I reserve the right to ban suspicious or inactive people, I will check profiles. Any concerns, comments, etc are welcome. I want this to be a fun & safe swap. No flakers. Also, if you have a swap like this going, please let me now, I made this one because I couldn't fine something like this. Thanks & Happy swapping people!

The witches fly

Across the sky,

The owls go, "Who? Who? Who?"

The black cats yowl

And green ghosts howl,

"Scary Halloween to you!"

I'm a little confused - you said you didn't set a minimum rating but it would be 5? Will you ban people under 5 rating? I'm a little worried about joining if it's a $10 swap and no minimum rating.

@maigo Sorry if I wasn't clear enough. What I was trying to say is that I didn't want to set an automatic rating, if that's what it's called, because if someone is a good swapper but happens to have a 3 for some reason - it happens - then they couldn't join. But like I said, they have to send me a message first before joining, explaining the rating. If they don't or I think they're suspicious or something I can always ban them. Or anyone else who seems like a flaker. I will also check if they're active or not before assigning partners. I've been flaked on in bigger swaps like these and it's no fun and I don't want it to happen here. But if you and the others who want to join think it would be better to set a 5.00 rating let me know. We can talk about it.

Hi. I am wondering what you would consider a "newbie". I am fairly new to swap-bot but have been very active in swapping. I would love to do this swap. Would you consider checking my profile by the end of the month and letting me know if I could participate? Thanks

willowsmarika 09/ 6/2012 #

@Rabbitfreedom For me you need to be on swap-bot for a few months & be active to not be a newbie. I'll check your profile when we're closer to the sign up date, but maybe someone is willing to do a private swap with you based on this one, or I'm fine if someone wants to do a swap like this but with a lower rating requirement & newbies.

@willowsmarika Thanks for clearing up my concern about ratings :) I was also just wondering if you have a rule about how much of the goodie bag should be edible stuff and how much should be non-edible stuff? :) Looking forward to this swap ^^

willowsmarika 09/ 7/2012 #

@maigo No problem :) No, I don't have a rule about that, it's up to you, just make sure to include something from both, it can be lots of edible things with a few non-edible or the other way around & you can always ask your partner which they would prefer if you want to, but it's sender's choice :)
