Hey everyone, welcome to a new pen pal swap. As someone who loves penpalling, I tend to join or host the occasional pen pal swap here on Swap Bot. I've found that it can be tough to find lasting pen pals here, because the Swap Bot community varies a lot in age, location, and interests. Hence, the pen pal swaps I host tend to be oriented towards interests, so people have something to share and talk about. Today, though, I received a letter from someone who mentioned the introduction prompt can get a bit repetitive, and this gave me the idea for a different sort of pen pal swap.
For this swap you will get 3 partners, and you will send each of them 1 letter. Each letter must be written on A4 paper (about 8.3 x 11.7 inches, little more, little less), and must contain:
From there on, you fill your letter with at least 5 of the following prompts (at least 5 lines per prompt):
I have no idea how few or many people are going to sign up for this, but there may be some who take a more serious approach and there may be some who take a more humorous approach. Be prepared for both ends of the spectrum and everything in between, which is to say: do not sign up if you're easily offended, or if controversy is a thing you prefer to avoid. The idea, of course, is that you will get into written conversation with someone (and that the conversation continues over time: lasting pen pals), so it also doesn't help if you prefer to keep your opinions to yourself.
That said, feel free to add to your letter by introducing your family, telling a bit about your hobbies, or whatever you feel like chatting about.
As a bonus, this swap will be Type 3 rated because it is time intensive.
Anyone with a rating of 4.98 can join. Those with recent 3 or 1 ratings might be banned, depending on reasons for the low ratings. No unrated users, but newbies might participate (depending on profile and recent swaps).
Well. Let's see how this pans out.
P.S. I will adjust the number of swap partners if 3 or less sign up.
