Please post in the comment space each time you send a week out. Maybe even send a message to let your partner know.

Please don't flake!! If you think you can't do all six weeks don't join the swap.

If by some chance you do not meet the requirements you will be banned!!

No recent 1's or 3's in the past three months....Rating of 4.9.....Only European swappers aloud .No unrated swappers {sorry}. No newbies aloud. Must have a well filled out profile.


January 7 {week 1}---- Write your partner a letter and introduce yourself. {tell about life, hobbies, job....stuff like that}

January 14 {week 2}--- Send a card, greeting/folded one {Senders Choice, Funny,Thinking of you, ect.} and write about your week. The card can be bought or homemade.

nice one ;) was waiting for it to be european only. I see you made the send date the date first letter must be send... and not the date the last week you have to send. You must have a reason for that, just curious

hkittygr 12/22/2012 #

I didn't do it for a special reason. I think it wouldn't do any difference, if the must sent date is the same like the first or the last letter should be sent...Do you see a difference?

mayuze 12/22/2012 #

not really..only people are able to rate from that day on. When do you click 'send my items'? The day when you have send all of them?

mayuze 12/22/2012 #

and I'm wrong 'cause ofcourse you can rate from the moment partners are assigned ;)

hkittygr 12/23/2012 #

I would click on 'sent my items' the day i've sent all of them, yes :-)

Merimax 12/25/2012 #

Is this handwritten only, or may the letters be typed?

hkittygr 12/27/2012 #

The letters should be handwritten, not typed.

Katti 12/27/2012 #

There are many swappers from Germany in the swap. 5 of 6! Funny. Looking forward to start this!

I don't have any problems with the deadline as well, I can send the letters on every Mondays, but if we mark it sent only in February, when we send the last letter, till that time we will get many notifications about unsent swaps by Swap bot.

Katti 01/ 1/2013 #

Yes, hkittygr, you need to change "the items must be sent" date to February 12. By this we don't get the late/unsent swaps notifications.

hkittygr 01/ 2/2013 #

Okay, i changed the must be sent date to February 11, the last monday of this swap. I didn't know, that you got notifications from swap-bot for late/unsent, thanks for letting me know :-)
