20 profile surprises #2

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:iggygirl (contact)
Swap categories: Challenges 
Number of people in swap:20
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Last day to signup/drop:August 2, 2010
Date items must be sent by:August 31, 2010
Number of swap partners:20

Thought this would be an interesting challenge. You have up to 20 partners (if less then 20 sign up then that means you'll be sending to all other participants) and to each you will send a small profile surprise in a 1 stamp envelope (it okay to go over 1 stamp don't rate down your partner based on how many stamps they used, just base your rating on what is inside the envie). For example you could send tea bag(s), bookmark, postcard, photographs, recipes, stickers etc just as long as the item matches their profile. Include a small note stating swap name, your username and why you sent what you did. They said they liked dogs so you sent a photo of your dog, they like tea so you sent 2 tea bags, they like to read so you sent a bookmark, they like to cook so you send a recipe etc.

You have a full month to send out all the envies but please don't hit send until every envie is in the mail. I'd suggest mailing them all at the same time so one doesn't get overlooked.

Requirements: Must have been on swap-bot at least 1 month with at least 20 type 2 and/or type 3 swaps completed. 4.9 or higher rating no recent 1's or 3's Must have a well filled out profile with a wishlist and likes list. :)

so let me get this straight we send 20 individual things to 20 ppl?

BarkleysMommy 07/27/2010 #

FUN!!! I love simple, personal swaps that involve lots of partners. I'm watching for now, buy only because I have a concern about the number of people who might require angels.Unfortunately, the odds of NOT receiving all 20 "return swap" envies are rather high. It HAD to be said, right? :-)

I would like to participate in this but i have to send out a few things first as I am at my newby max of 5!!! Sounds like a great way to get some ratings!

tifffoster 07/28/2010 #

I got worried when I saw 20 things to send - but then excited thinking about getting 20 different things! Gonna watch for now.

Chelle 07/28/2010 #

I joined this last time around. Its fun and easy, both to do and on the pocket too. highly recommended. =)

Laurenbujo 07/28/2010 #

also watching for now because i agree with @barkleysmommy the odds of NOT receiving all 20 things in return are to great... and @elizabethmd I don't think its 20 things per envie.. its just you are sending out 20 envies... thats quite a few stamps... and I just recently lost my job :(

Jazza 07/28/2010 #

I also have my concerns but i also like the thought of finding 20 gifts and even better recving (hopfuly) the same back. I would be a lot happier to join if it was more like 10 ppl thoguh so i am also watching for now.

kimpe 07/28/2010 #

Same concern here. With the amount of flakes lately for me 20 is a lot even though it's only one item per envie. I still would be sending out 20 envies with an item in each. i also hope that recipients understand that it's only something that matches something they like. As you stated it could be just a recipe or a picture.

ladydy5 07/28/2010 #

20 sends is a lot and International can cost a bit. Why not make it 10?

iggygirl 07/29/2010 #

@ladydy5 Why not host your own and make it 10? I don't mind you can copy and paste and alter to fit your needs, 10 instead of 20, regional instead of international whatever.

@kimpe "as long as the item matches their profile." if you have a profile with clear likes and dislikes your less likely to get stuff you don't want.

@Barkleymommy hence the high requirements to avoid flakers.

DarbyFlats 07/30/2010 #

I'm still struggling to catch up. I'll have to drop this round. I'll be on the lookout for round 3!

Jenna83 07/30/2010 #

I did this swap last round, and I can say that I've received most of my envies already...even though the send date is not here yet. The requirements are higher than a lot of swaps...isn't it more about the sending anyway? :) Well, it is for me, anyway. The hardest part for me was sifting through all the profiles for just 'one' swap. :) Happy swapping!

grandmaroro 08/ 1/2010 #

I have joined swaps that had 30 partners. I can honestly say I LOVE IT. No, I am not burdened with money - lol - I draw SS. But Swapbot is my hidden pleasure. My family also gets a great deal of pleasure in seeing my gifts - that's how I look at swaps. Grandchildren love when I share with them.

Jenna 83. yes it is more about the sending, especially at Christmastime. The more the merrier, and I love the international swappers. I have only been flaked on by one int'l.

But remember - nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I'm in. Don't know how I missed the first one.

missxkay 08/ 2/2010 #

I'd love to do this one, but with so many other swaps on my plate right now...yikes! I hope you'll do it again, or someone else does one with a feweer number of partners. :)

grandmaroro 08/ 3/2010 #

OMGoodness --- I am so excited. I just checked my partners. What a varied group of destinations. I can hardly wait.

amdewitt 08/ 3/2010 #

This is going to be great!!! but I've decided I will need to do a spreadsheet to keep up with this one!!! LOL

ladonnatwinmom 08/ 5/2010 #

I have about half sent. Will try and finish the rest today. Will mark it sent when all are done! What fun!

ladonnatwinmom 08/ 7/2010 #

All done! YAHOOOOOO!

Lexidh 08/12/2010 #

I just have to say to any critics; I got something from all partners in the last version of this, and they are pouring in from this one already, even though I live in Norway! <3 I will definitely sign up in future versions too, as long as I have the time =)

Chelle 08/13/2010 #

Boo hoo I missed this swap for some reason! =(

ccomrie23 08/14/2010 #

All of mine are mailed except the international ones. Will mail on Monday!

ctyankee 08/15/2010 #

How did I miss this one???

Carolinev237 08/18/2010 #

Carolinev237 08/18/2010 #
