Asian Energy ATC Swap 2/2
Swap Coordinator:user4109 (contact)
Swap categories: Paper Goods  Challenges  Art

Last day to signup/drop:December 15, 2006
Date items must be sent by:December 15, 2006
Number of swap partners:3

Since 2/2 swaps are so popular, I thought I'd host one with the theme "Asian Energy". This is a loose theme to be interpreted as you choose. What makes you think of energy and power in Asian regions? I collect Asian themed cards, Buddha, QuanYin, Yin and Yang, Cherry Blossoms, Dragonfly, Chinese, Japanese, etc. so am always happy to add to my collection.

In this swap you will create a total of 6 cards! Yep 6! You send 2 cards to each of your partners. You will have 3 partners. Last day to send out and sign up are the same: December 15, 2006.

Isn’t that cutting it pretty tight giving us only one day to mail our cards?

user4899 11/20/2006 #

I think the idea behind it is make the cards NOW and then you'll have them ready to mail as soon as you find out who your partners are -- then just slap the addresses on the envelopes and off they go. I might join -- still thinking on this one.

The thing is, I don't get to be on the internet every day. I would love to join this swap because I love Asian themed things too. However, even if I have the cards ready, I can't be sure I'll be able to get on the computer that specific day to get the addresses and mail them. Even a few days of leeway would make a big difference for a lot of people I think.

I think your idea of the date is great. I always make my cards ahead of time and mail them the next day. Yes, then I have to wait for weeks before I ever get mine. But that's how it's set up, so I wait.

Is it an international swap ? if it is, hope the shipping time will not be taken into account to give a rating !

user3645 12/ 1/2006 #

Do we make the same pair of cards for each swap partner?

graydragon 12/ 2/2006 #

Yay! Asian themed ATC's are one of my favourites, I already have some ready to send, can't wait!

I wonder if this swap will happen. The hostess has leave swapbot. She had send me an email and I'm very sad that one of my participants in my swap will not get anything because goodbye is the partner. :-(

Drachenfrau 12/ 8/2006 #

PS: She tells in her profile! Look there.

Batraplume 12/ 8/2006 #

She has dropped from this swap too and is not among the list of participants anylonger, so the question is : will the robot do his job anyway or does it need a swap coordinator at this state of the game ??

user2839 12/ 9/2006 #

I just signed up for this swap, and it did allow me to sign up. I imagine the 'bot' will do his job and give us all partners. If not, I will create a new swap, same type of theme. Let's wait and see what happens on Dec. 15th.

user3645 12/15/2006 #

No partners have been assigned. Are you still interested in hosting the swap Susan?

user4968 12/16/2006 #

My cards are complete and have been, they are in the envelopes with stamps and there are no partners to send to. What's up with this?

user2839 12/16/2006 #

Ok, looks like maybe since the original hostess dropped out, that the 'bot' didn't assign any partners. So I will set this up again. I don't want to use her same title in the event that that is a no-no....so...thinking....ummm.... ok, let's just keep it simple...look for the swap titled Asian ATC Exchange. (sorry, at 2:45 in the morning, I am not really creative!!) See you in the new swap!!!

user4465 12/17/2006 #

Has anyone e-mailed swap-bot about this??? I will just to be safe...

user4465 12/17/2006 #

The partners are up solets get swapping!!

graydragon 12/17/2006 #

There seemed to be a lot of problems with getting partners addresses over the weekend but after I emailed swap-bot all mine turned up!

I'm so glad this swap is going ahead as I had everytthing ready to post, they will be in the mail tomorrow to Cheryl, Susan and Evelyn :)

user3645 12/20/2006 #

Westie, Cristina 584 and Sheri-

Obviously my atc's will be late due to all the problems with this swap. I figured that since I couldn't get my partner's names on the close date that it was not happening. Your atc's will be in the mail on 12/20. Sorry for the delay. I will email all of you to let you know what is happening as well. I hope you understand this when you rate me. Thanks.

user2839 12/21/2006 #

I think we will all take into consideration the issue with swap-bot and the delay in getting partner assignments. This was a unique situation and I ask that all concerned remember this when they are leaving feedback. Thanks to all who participated and I hope you enjoy the ATC's.

Ray, received your wonderful ATC's and your are right, your Geisha is spectacular. Thanks Janet

Janetburns 12/26/2006 #

Peter C. Received your great ATC's today....Thanks, Janet

user4968 12/31/2006 #

Still waiting on any of my 3 cards to receive.

user4968 01/ 3/2007 #

Now I have 3 people to rate. One of the 3 lists as not sent and 2 have sent however I haven't received anything from anybody. I realize this swap was fouled up but then names to send to were posted and I filled my obligation and yet nothing in return.
