Thank you @snailmailer1 for letting me host international version of Flat Mail Swap.

For this, you will send 5 items of flat mail to 1 partner.

Try to make at least one be profile-based.

Do not send 5 of the same item. Let's try to make it interesting :)

Anything flat that you think your partner may like to receive.

Please only send items new/ as good as new. No-one likes to receive dirty or broken items.

Be creative with your swaps. If you're stuck, here are a few ideas:

Writing paper




Hot Chocolate

Note cards




Not compulsory, but it's always nice to read an enclosed letter/ note from the sender.

Newbies only with well-filled-out profile welcome.

Minimum rating is 4.99.

No 1's allowed.

Happy Swapping!

Thank-you for hosting this one!

Can some items be handmade?

daichki 04/19/2013 #

Sure, but you will need to ask your partners if they like something handmade.

User @katheriin has joined this swap and has two 1 ratings that could be fixed. Please consider dropping her to protect your other swappers. I also recommend putting a rating requirement on any swaps you host to make it easier. You can edit the swap and have the system check for a 4.99 rating for you so people with less than that can't even join. =) Good luck!

daichki 04/30/2013 #

Yes tiggerkitn25, I banned her. Maybe she didn't even read the swap description. Don't worry, I always check and ban bad swappers before I start my swap. This swap is also for new members, so if I set up the ratings with 4.99, new members can't join. If this was not for new members, I would do that. Thank you for your considering. :)

UPDATED: from 2 partners to 1 partner as this is international.

I have a really dumb question. I know this because it hasn't been asked yet...Is it five separate envelopes? Or one envelope with five items in it?

Mirnyj 05/ 1/2013 #

You can tick the box that allows unrated swappers to join even if you set a rating requirement?

snailmailer1 05/ 1/2013 #

@Stacy one envelope with 5 items.

snailmailer1 05/ 1/2013 #

Congratulations on making it to the top 10 @daichki

hazan33 05/ 2/2013 #

Can new ones join also? (no rating yet...)

daichki 05/ 2/2013 #

Stacy, yes, it's one envelope with five items in it. Questions are welcome! Thanks for asking. :)

daichki 05/ 2/2013 #

Mirnyj, this is a swap also for new members - but if you have been here on swap-bot for a while, minimum rating must be 4.99.

daichki 05/ 2/2013 #

snailmailer1, thank you! I am really happy coz yours got to "Top Swaps", too! :)

daichki 05/ 2/2013 #

hazan33, yes new members can join but you must have your well-filled-out profile, maybe you need more information about yourself on your profile.

mashaiam 05/ 2/2013 #

still no partner assigned for me :-(

daichki 05/ 2/2013 #

mashaiam, sorry but it was edited as May 9.

thebragal 05/ 6/2013 #

@mashaiam you don't get a partner until the swap finishes and the coordinator assigns partners. The system allows 7 days tho most do so in 1-2 days.

daichki 05/ 7/2013 #

Thank you ladies for joining my swap!! :)

wanderluster 05/ 8/2013 #

Thanks for allowing newbies!!! I'm excited!

Lisette 05/ 8/2013 #

Sorry maybe a stupid question but what means. No 1s alloud ?

nouyana 05/ 9/2013 #

@Lisette it means who got rated any 1 point (there are 1, 3, 5 point and each for not sent, sent but late or not satisfy the swap requirement, and sent well) is not allowed. this is what i found but i'm still newbie so i'm curious too :D

Clearbrite 05/22/2013 #
