Here's what you do:

  • Post a link in the comments with the code you intend to use by Jan. 31 (sign-up date). ~ You are welcome to create your own, just be sure to leave a link where you have demonstrated it or description of how it works below.

  • Write a coded message to your partner using a code from your posted link. (This allows your partner to decipher your code without you having to include the code which would allow the postal spies to decipher it!)

  • The postcard can be store-bought or handmade.

Here are a few codes that you might like to use:

Ex. 1

Ex. 2

Ex. 3

I will be using the code pictured in Ex2

Loonstruck 01/23/2015 #

I will be using Monoalphabetic Substitution - the pigpen code - as demonstrated in the Ex 1 link, number 5 example.

JaguarSnail 01/25/2015 #

I'll use the Pig Pen code in example 3

sherba31 01/27/2015 #

I'll be using the Grid code in Ex. 3.

luluvision 01/30/2015 #

I'm going to attempt to do transposition #8 in Ex1

I'm sorry to have to do it but I'm dropping this swap. I don't feel I can do a good job between tomorrow and the 9th. If someone would like to do a private swap with this description, due around the 15th, I would love to do that.

I just checked the coordinator's page and she has not logged on since 01/22/2015 so I don't know if this swap will actually get partners assigned. Cool idea though for sure.

I sent her a message yesterday. Hope everything's ok. We can always set it up again if it doesn't happen this time :)

Hey folks! I am terribly sorry for completely neglecting this swap and leaving everyone in the dark. The swap will still go on! I have extended the sign-up until the original send by date (9th) or anyone who wants to jump back in. Everyone will have until the end of the month to send their message.

snout 02/ 4/2015 #

Code for me: I will be using the Monoalphabetic Substitution from Ex. 1 (#5 listed on the page).

AmookIslandCreations 02/ 6/2015 #

I will be using #5 from Example 1.

edgetorn 02/ 9/2015 #

I will be using the Pig Pen Symbol Code in Ex. 3

rngstgstll 02/11/2015 #

I am going to use Morse Code, because I have always wanted to learn it :)
