40 Things About You - Just 4 fun! eMail swap
Swap Coordinator:angelstar (contact)
Swap categories: Letters & Writing  Email 
Number of people in swap:116
Last day to signup/drop:April 11, 2009
Date items must be sent by:April 24, 2009
Number of swap partners:10

This is my very first swap. So please be kind. .... Please read all the text in this swap carefully before joining. I really like doing these swaps. I tried to come up with questions that have not been used much before.

I thought I'd figure out what you coordinators have to go through.
This is an email swap and each participant will have 10 partners to send to. That is, send one email with your list completely filled out to each of your 10 partners after the partners are assigned. This is an International swap.
Copy the following list into a document or an email and answer the questions, then send it to your 10 partners. Partners will be assigned as soon as I can get online after the swap ends; and it might take me some time to figure this out. This should be some time the day after the final day of the swap.
A suggestion for your list: Put extra space between each question-and-answer group so it will be easier to read, and please don't forget to include the title of the swap and your Swap-bot user name in your emails to your partners.

To get a heart add extra detail to each of your answers, add some extra information about yourself at the end, or attach an interesting photo that you took - or all three!! Let's all have fun!!! But, it's still up to the recipient as to whether they will give a heart or not.

Here's the list:

  1. If you could eat anything and you were hungry what would it be?

  2. Have you ever smoked cigarettes?

  3. What are you afraid of?

  4. What's your favorite drink at Starbucks or other specialty coffee shops?

  20. Like to travel?

Newbies are welcome with filled out profiles. No one should join with a 4.5 or lower rating and with NO no-sends within the last three months, please. If you have a lower rating please contact me if you really want to join and really will send. If you join, Please, Please DO send your list to your partners. And please do rate your partners when you receive your list from them. I will ban any questionable swappers. Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to ask below, or send me a message. I will try to come back here to this swap every couple of days at least (more like every day) to check in and answer any questions.

There is a while before the swap starts and a couple of weeks to get your list together. I hope everyone will have lots of fun with this!

Someone had a question about #17.

My answer: You can choose anything you like; for instance:
Your favorite song right now; your favorite movie; Your favorite country that you've visited; your favorite flower; your favorite of anything that you can think of. It's totally open. You can even choose several items.

I thought it would be cool to have one questions where you can use your imagination and be totally free. Hope that's okay with everyone.

angelstar 03/26/2009 #

Actually, it doesn't even have to be a favorite or favorites. Just something that you especially like right now.
I hope that isn't TOO open ended. :-)

ravenshadowcaster 04/ 3/2009 #

That question would cover what is your passion, when i meet new people and I ask them what is your real passion, what brings you real joy, they often are taken aback and say no ones ever asked them that as often what they really love is not what they end up doing as life work etc and often they are too fearful to tell their partners what they would really love to do (like the movie where Richard Geere's character takes up ball room dance and his wife is furious when she finds out because he never told her. I'm in for this swap perfect for a newby like me thanks angelstar

Connie67 04/ 5/2009 #

I got excited about this swap and have already answered all the questions. so I am definitely ready for this one! Reallly good questions too. thank you for a great survey!

Midnightshadow 04/ 7/2009 #

Can we make the answers fancy by adding pictures and layout to the answering and then attaching it to the email or does it have to be written into the email?

RoseStryker 04/ 7/2009 #

i got a 1 for no reason as i send to the person. she did not like what she got and gave me a one. can I still join?

angelstar 04/ 7/2009 #

You're welcome to Connie67. :-)

angelstar 04/ 7/2009 #

To Midnightshadow: Yes, adding pictures and layout to - for instance - a Microsoft Word document - and attaching it to the email would be fine. I, for one, like it when people do this. But make sure all of your partners can open your document. MS word is the most popular form, but one never knows.
You can always send it out to all your partners and make sure to write in the email part, your user name, and all that, and then say that if they can't open the attachment they can contact you and let you know this.

angelstar 04/ 7/2009 #

To ladyrose: I looked at your profile and your overall total looks just fine, so, yes you can join. :-)

angelstar 04/ 7/2009 #

To RavenShadowCaster: You're very welcome. I hope everyone has fun with their answers to that question. (#17)

I let several people in with lower ratings because they wrote to me and promised that they would send. Sometimes people with bad luck need a second chance.

cynaemon 04/11/2009 #

Angelstar, You really are an angel. Thanks for letting me join. My answers are all ready to go. Nathalie

angelstar 04/12/2009 #

Partners are assigned! Enjoy!!

AwtemNymf 04/12/2009 #

Just sent mine. Let me know if you don't get it. I'll re-send! Thanks! ~A~

misumisu22 04/12/2009 #

Mine are all sent. Let me know if you don't receive and I will send it out again. Happy Easter!

yomousey 04/12/2009 #

Ok I just sent mine. Hope everyone gets it! Would've been sooner but AOL was driving me crazy, Ugh!

spriteakins 04/13/2009 #

Mine's been sent, Hope it show's up in the correct format for everyone! x

user6728 04/13/2009 #

Can someone please tell me if they recieved my list? My e-mail address is [email protected] I spent about an hour filling out the survey and I attached photos too, but when I clicked "send" the page went blank and it didn't tell me if it was sent or not. PLEASE let me know because if no one recieved it, I have to get busy re-typing! Thanks <3

grandmaroro 04/14/2009 #

I've spent four days getting this ready and sent. There are no pictures - I don't know how to that -, but I had fun filling out (probably) too much info. Hope everyone enjoys. Joan

Midnightshadow 04/14/2009 #

I have sent mine out. Let me know if you for some reason didn't recieve it then I will resend.

Neener1430 04/14/2009 #

Mine are sent out also and as the others if you haven't received it, please let me know so I can resend. Didn't have any mail come back.

angelstar 04/24/2009 #

There are 8 people who haven't sent yet. Hope to see them all as sent soon!

I very much enjoyed reading all my partners answers to the questions. Hope everyone who got one from me enjoyed them too!

Also, please don't forget to rate!!!

CandyGirl 04/24/2009 #

Ok, mine are sent! Some people have tried to rate me for candigirl, double check the swap-bot names, thanks!

angelstar 04/25/2009 #

3 more people have to mark sent on the participant list.
2 people out of these people have sent already.
1 person hasn't sent yet.
I sent a message to each of these people. Hopefully everyone will be marked as sent on the participant list soon!

That would be so cool !

angelstar 04/25/2009 #

From the coordinator (that's me!): If you haven't received a list from someone that you expect, then please check the participant list. If they are marked as sent then perhaps the email got lost in cyberspace. Just wait a few more days and then send them a message; I'm sure they will be happy to send again.

I certainly would! :-)

angelstar 04/25/2009 #

Don't forget to Rate your partners!

gothfaerie05 04/29/2009 #

Okay, quick note! I have not flaked! I filled the survey out and saved it in word and apparently forgot to send it out before what was a rather poorly planned trip to the other end of the state! :-( so sorry guys. I promise I will e-mail it to you guys as soon as I get home tomorrow. :-)

angelstar 04/30/2009 #

And please don't forget to mark yours as sent when you send !

angelstar 05/ 5/2009 #

So only two people have not marked as sent on the participant list, but I know that they have sent because I see ratings on their profiles. So I guess this swap is over with. What fun!!
