Swap Coordinator:Jaichan (contact)
Swap categories: Miscellaneous  Email 
Number of people in swap:99
Location:International
Type:Type 1: Electronic
Rating requirement:4.96
Last day to signup/drop:October 4, 2010
Date items must be sent by:October 7, 2010
Number of swap partners:3
Description:

We've all seen them... the swaps where the host(ess) has written a detailed swap description, and then 50000 swappers write what they would do to make the swap better. Or why they won't join the swap. Or that they want specific things in a sender's choice swap. Or they want postcards in an envelope in a naked postcard swap. Or they want turquoise yarn in an all orange swap. You get the idea!

So, for this swap, it's pretty simple. Tell us what you would change to join this swap, or why you won't join the swap, or why I suck as a hostess, whatever. You will leave these comments in the swap comments and you will have three partners. You'll have a few days to post comments. You rate your partners on their comments here. If they've left a comment by the time the swap has closed (even before the swap starts!), then they get a 5. It's pretty much the only swap requirement.

It's pretty simple.

Have fun, be creative, don't be mean, rate your partners, and don't flake.

No recent unexplained ones or threes, and definitely no flakes on any email swaps.

Get commentin'!

We're looking great here! So far, almost all the swappers who have signed up have already commented... keep it up! Just to clarify, you don't have to leave a comment on your partners' profiles; you leave the comments here for all of us to enjoy.

Now leave me and my swap alone.

Thank you to @allthisbeauty for pointing out that control-f will help you find your partners in the comments.

It's too bad Jaichan is the hostess of this swap. It seems like a good idea, but she's just awful, so I'm not joining.

midwestkiwi 10/ 1/2010 #

I might join this swap but I just don't understand the requirements. Couldn't you be more specific about what is to be sent to and received from a partner.

eepy 10/ 1/2010 #

Hilarious! I would join this swap if it was snail mail!

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

Me, too! And I want REAL stamps on the letter when it becomes a snail mail swap!

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

midwestkiwi, I tweaked the swap description just for you! I really hope you join and have fun in this swap. You seem pretty creative.

terrimamma 10/ 1/2010 #

jaichan, this is hilarious! i would join this swap but electronic, international swaps are too expensive...i would like to see a version of this swap exclusively for people who like to drink wine out of sneakers with pink shoelaces while wearing glittery shorts. i hope you will consider hosting such a swap because i don't have the grapes to do it myself. ;)

Zorgball 10/ 1/2010 #

Yeah Jaichan, its just a swap so hostess and participants please dont freak out, I even got "ban" from another swap because I joined but fall short to complete 2 more swaps...I got so excited didnt read the fine prints....hahaha. Relax and have fun everyone - dont take life too serious, be kind, follow through a swap and pass on the blessings :)

dreamerkins 10/ 1/2010 #

i was wondering.. instead of the posted requirements of this swap, can i just send an atc... or maybe just a 2 1/2"x 3 1/2"... give or take an inch on each side, peice of cardboard? or, better yet, can i take a picture of my cardboard, and post it on my profile to show i made it? if i could do that instead, i would join.

dreamerkins 10/ 1/2010 #

o, and also, my partner needs to send their comment printed in black ink, on black paper.... they can scan it, but the writing needs to be legible... ;P

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

You are all wonderful. These comments are making me smile and giggle. I'm glad I started this swap; it's good for the soul to be silly every once in a while.

dreamerkins 10/ 1/2010 #

i would definitely join this swap if Jaichan sent fudge to all of the swappers who join... or just me. yea, just me, because then i get more.... i hear her fudge is divine...

chewytulip 10/ 1/2010 #

I would join this swap if everyone would take it just a little bit more seriously. Also, I would join if I could demand that my partner send me stickers. Lots of them. But I'm actually allergic to adhesive, so, like, whoever is my partner will have to make sure that the stickers aren't actually sticky. This actually happens if they are old enough, so they'd need to be real, genuine, vintage stickers - not just "old." Like I said, I'd join if we were actually swapping anything. :P

camelsamba 10/ 1/2010 #

I would join this swap if it specified 2 high-end chocolate bars, or a minimum price. As it is now, my partner could just buy cheap-o major brand chocolate, and what's the point of that?

siouxx05 10/ 1/2010 #

I would join this swap if it was for someone sending me something but I didn't have to send them anything back.. seriously, how rich do people think I am .. I just want to get stuff - not post it ! ;)

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

I would join this swap if Jaichan made me fudge, too! I haven't made fudge for a while. I have to get on that. I have to make some carrot cupcakes this weekend for a coworker, but then I'll make some fudge, and then I won't join this swap.

Thanks for nothing.

juliewasson 10/ 1/2010 #

I wolud jion tihs sawp ecepxt taht I hvae been lugahing so hrad I am ciryng and I cnat see the kaybraod amnyore.

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

Haha! The fun part of this swap is... well, everyone who has posted so far has completed the swap requirement! So, join! Have fun! When the time comes to rate, scan the comments for your partners' comments, then rate them. Easy peasy lemon cheesy.

dreamerkins 10/ 1/2010 #

i would join this swap, but i'm afraid Jaichan will send me lemon cheesy now.... that just sounds... wrong... (btw: is it ok if i post several comments.. because i did...lol)

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

You can post as many times as you like! I can't promise that I won't have some kind of tantrum and delete most of them, but I guess that's the risk you'll have to take.

pickleme 10/ 1/2010 #

I would join this swap if my profile would be changed to read 'Original Member' because it sounds so cool.

voodooninja 10/ 1/2010 #

y'know i would join this swap, but here's the thing...i don't get it...what am i supposed to do?...i mean, for real, is there a point to this swap?....i don't really understand...i wish the directions were clearer, because it seems like it could be a really cool swap, if i understood it. Plus, i don't like the color of my potential partner's hair...you know who you are...so, if you could make this swap clearer, and if that one person who joined (who knows who they are) would dye their hair, say, green, then i'd be inclined to perhaps maybe decide to think about the possibility of my joining this swap....

Jaichan 10/ 1/2010 #

I just ran out to the shops to buy every single hair dye colour I could find. I need to make all of you happy; it's my prime directive as your swap hostess.

Mmm. Hostess. As awful as it sounds, I had such a craving for a Hostess cupcake earlier this evening that I walked to the convenience store in the rain. No lie! Then I thought about not joining this swap as I ate the badness. It was awesome.

dreamerkins 10/ 1/2010 #

well, voodooninja... i could potentially be your partner... and my hair is purple. will that work? i dont think i can do green. it'd probably mix with the purple and become a very bad brown...

midwestkiwi 10/ 1/2010 #

Okay, I've joined this swap, but I'm still going to be "watching". I'll drop this swap in a heartbeat if I can't substitute carob for any of the chocolate requirements. ARE YOU GONNA ANGEL THIS SWAP?!

midwestkiwi 10/ 1/2010 #

PS I hate glitter and the color pink. My partner check my profile and not leave a pink or glittery comment!

midwestkiwi 10/ 1/2010 #

PS I hate glitter and the color pink. My partner check my profile and not leave a pink or glittery comment!

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

I'm also out if anyone can rate me down for double posts, because I don't know how the hell that happened, I can't possibly be held accountable!

ladywolfsong 10/ 2/2010 #

I would love to join this swap, if only it was held on the second Thursday of a month ending in blue...and I want only expensive items in my package, but I'm only going to send used stuff

Sapphyre 10/ 2/2010 #

I would totally join this swap if it wasn't such a quick turnaround. I mean, seven days to leave a comment? I'm not sure I can get to the post off..., I mean pc, in seven days. Maybe we could get an extension?

pickleme 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if no other flakers join. I mean if no flakers join. I would never flake on a swap, not me. No way.

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

@terrimamma I would totally do a private swap with you if we could forego the glittery shorts and go with bermuda shorts or short shorts or gym shorts. Except gym shorts would have to be worn with striped tube socks. I'm willing to overlook the pink shoelaces, since I drink with my eyes closed anyway. I would host, but you have to promise to give me a heart, and a star.

halcigone 10/ 2/2010 #

I would totally join this swap if it were sent unwritten on and in an envelope. Not just any envelope mind, it must be a magical envelope blessed personally by 3 virgin frogs. And the envelope must be wrapped in at least 3 layers of plastic and tape and it must be sealed by a person wearing a hairshirt, because if they haven't suffered enough to send me my magical envelope, I don't want it. Oh, and did I mention there must be lots and lots of tape? The multiple layers are crucial because at no point must the magical envelope be exposed to air - because the awesomeness will be diluted, and we can't have that, now can we?

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if... well let me just say that I would shower the intelligent & beautiful hostess @Jaichan w/ gabillions of Reese's peanut butter cups, if she would edit the swap to include a link to my own splendificent swap because my swap is obviously the second most wonderful swap on the Web--second only to this swap! =big grin=

Crowsdance 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap, but I thin kmy comment is just not good enough. I mean really, I have been laughing myself to tears reading the above comments and just don't think mine could possibly compare. I wouldn't want to rick a three, plus It would be so much better if my partner was required the give me a heart. I hope you all understand......

ButterflyDreams 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if it said that I would definately get a heart if I sent a 1000 extras to my swap partner......

ButterflyDreams 10/ 2/2010 #

I know this is a Kawaii swap and I really really REALLY LOVE Kawaii but I don't have any right now so I'll be sending my partners Winnie the Pooh instead of Kawaii. I would totally join if this is OK.....Let me know!!!

Obstminkerl 10/ 2/2010 #

This swap is AWSOME! I love it and I would totally join if people wouldn't be soooo picky. But after reading all those comments I really run out of steam. :o( I live in an old barn on a desert island and the postman comes ever 3. week. The only shop here is a Dollarstore and they have wonderful plastic candles and a-w-e-s-o-m-e used socks I'd love to send oversea to make my partner happy! But under that circumstands I will NOT join. So sad....nitpicking just ruins everything!

pippelotje 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap IF and only If I could get @midwestkiwi as my swappartner. I mean, I have so much pink glitters laying around here and I'll be sure she'd love them. So yeah, do that for me, please. and as for myself, please send me nothing by email; since I turned out to react allergic to my keybord by typing the @ -just flaring up again- .....and therefor can't open my mail, and not be able to rate you.

o this IS an electronic swap? I will ask my doctor about it. But do send me hearts. I'm desperate for a lot of them, and frankly, I deserve them. I'm not a native english speaker so that's why I'm not as funny as you. but send me tose hearts anyway. yes. thanks. than I'll join.....

pippelotje 10/ 2/2010 #

I'd like to add that I need some medical staff stand by for this swap as well, in order for me to join, I just barely survived reading some comments, and will be needing a bottle of oxygen in further correspondance here. sincerely.

mutantpenguin 10/ 2/2010 #

I'd join this swap but again, it's international and expensive to ship! Even electronically! I mean c'mon, I have to PAY for internet service and now I have to PAY to ship this over the internet? Oh, wait. I don't. Nevermind. OK, how about this - I'm on vacation when this ends so if someone sends late I can't rate because I'm not having a computer with me for 2 weeks (this really is true!) so I'm gonna join but if you don't send in time for me to rate, I will be a late RATER (not sender!).

So I'll join the swap but don't expect too much!

nicky33 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if it had more specific requirements on what to leave in the email. And to lengthen to deadline

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

You have all made me laugh on this foggy morning in Moncton. Thank you! I'm really hoping to see some Level 5 flouncing here, like 'I am horribly offended by this swap hostess! I'm leaving Swap bot forever! You all stink!'

supernature 10/ 2/2010 #

The swap is just so faulty that anybody who joins it would have to be totally bonkers (no comment on the hostess's state of mind either :). Chances are they would also probably the most easy going none-nitpickering swappers on the bot currently.

I agreement with terrimamma and mutantpenguin - it is way too expensive BUT the WORST thing of all is the delay in getting the swap. The postal system in South Africa is sooooo bad that it even affects email.

juliewasson 10/ 2/2010 #

You know, now that I have recovered from my laughing/crying fit and had a good nights sleep I have discovered one MAJOR flaw. The hostess is not participating. I mean, what does she think this is? She sets up a (ridiculous) swap and then never talks to anyone? Shes just trying to get stars for doing nothing. Maybe we should have her banned. Any thoughts?

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

@jaichan would you might if I copied this swap for a USA only version? I'm seeing lots of comments here that international is too expensive to join, and I'd be happy to host a USA only swap.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Ha! Honestly, this swap is going to get me committed. I'm by myself in a coffee shop downtown and laughing quite loudly.

I've already been outed in the public forums! Which sent me into fits of giggles and now the at the table next to me are eyeing me suspiciously as they leave.

I don't know who the hostess thinks she is. I'm pretty sure @Jaichan is a new or returning swapper, and somehow managed to manipulate the system to make it look like she's an original swapper.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

@midwestkiwi - I would have much preferred if you had started your own swap, copied and pasted my description, made it USA, then posted a link to it in my swap.

Unfortunately, I can't join that swap because I live in Canada. But I would post on that swap why I couldn't join the swap.

Oh dear. I think my head just exploded.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

Are handmade comments allowed?

CSNYfan 10/ 2/2010 #

Ugh. I hate hand made comments. I wish people would just find buy their comments in a store or send a gift card for a comment instead.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

Well, not everyone can afford to buy comments in stores! You there in USA of course have cheap postage and dollar stores, but the same comment costs at least ten times more here in Latvia!

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I don't think your comment will fit in my ATC binder. Please send me another comment with the proper measurements and less embellishments.

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

I was gonna join this swap until I noticed how short the turn-around was. I don't know how you expect swappers to complete a swap in only three days. Maybe you could add some days to the deadline? Are you going to assign partners right away? Or are you going to inspect everyone's profile before assigning partners and take the full 7 days to assign? You really don't need to check every profile, cause I'll angel this swap if it needs it. Oh, and if you change all the things that I want changed in YOUR swap, I will still probably not sign up, but on the off chance that I do, I will complain the loudest about getting flaked on because you didn't check everyone's profile before assigning partners.

BTW, I was wondering if I could get a partner from the US, I really only like to send swaps to someone local. Thanks.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

In fact, I don't think I have ever seen a comment here in stores. As I don't have PayPal to buy them from internet, I won't join if handmade ones are not allowed. :( But I can make reallt awesome crocheted comments that you don't even want to put in a binder together with others so their size is not important at all!

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

Well, I think three days is way too much for a swap where you have to post a comment before it starts. Can't you shorten the time?

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

Whiskey 10/ 2/2010 #

@pahasiga handmade comments are not real comments! I will totally 1 you if you get paired with me and I'm stuck with another one of your gold-leafed, diamond-encrusted, laser-measured, chocolate-chip-laden homemade Fabergé comments. Yuck!

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

I'm starting to worry... If I spend a lot of time and energy on my comment and my partners only "half heart" their comments, can I rate a 3?

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I had better get some angry pms from you people asking me why I haven't assigned partners yet. Seriously.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I am not going to angel this swap.

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

OMG @Whiskey you HAVE to rate at least a 3 if you get something. It's part of the Swap-bot rules. You can only rate a 1 if you don't receive anything. @pahasiga I would love to get one of your homemade comments.

xxkarenlxx 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap, but I'm allergic to swaps where I don't receive a physical object covered to obscurity in cat, dog and squirrel hair, or if the sender lacks furry animals, at least spit and dried ice cream. Maybe next time the swap could be thought out a little better for those of us with special needs. :(

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

I don't know...three partners! What if they are all international? I'm on a pink shoestring budget and could probably only afford one international partner.

And I agree with @phtbtmgrl Your description doesn't include used or recycled swaps. I definitely don't want a thrift store or second hand comment.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

And I agree with @phtbtmgrl Your description doesn't include used or recycled swaps. I definitely don't want a thrift store or second hand comment.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

What if my partner happens to be allergic to my comment? Will host delete such comments from here before she can read it?

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

I want to remind everyone here that swap host has the right to delete your comments, so take a screenshot of yours in case she evilly deletes your comment and your partner, not finding your comment, is about to rate you 1!

P.S. I better take a screenshot of this comment, too.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I'll up the partners to 25, assign partners, delete all of the comments the second they pop up (I won't sleep for three days), and end up getting all of us partially suspended.

Everybody loses!

SwedishMum 10/ 2/2010 #

I would soo love to join this swap, but only if it was all in Swedish. English is not my language so I want to totally understand my partner.

Oh, and I want my partner to send in a box, not a flat mail or package. Thank you please!

SwedishMum 10/ 2/2010 #

me again, i can't join now because when I was going to send today my cat ate the box I was supposed to send. Now I have only 5 days so - sorry.....

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I was going to ban you anyway, SwedishMum. But your cat is more than welcome to join this swap! I look forward to hearing from him/her.

JessiPancake 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if it wasn't such obvious flaker bait. I would put lots of time and thought into picking out just the right comments for my partners. I would go to every little specialty comment store I could find and pick one just for them. Then I would get NO comments from my flaker partners. Oh, and I realize this is sender's choice, but my partners better make comments about things I list as 'likes' on my profile or they will be getting a THREE from me for not fulfilling the requirements.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

Somebody promised for my mathbox swap to send a cat in a box and the receiver having to guess whether cat is dead or alive, now SwedishMum will send for this swap a box in a cat and let the receiver to guess whether the box is dead or alive.

SwedishMum 10/ 2/2010 #

Ban me!!
Now I am really going to the forum to tell them all about this swap and the host! This is so unfair!!
I always send out in time, ok ok the right date, but a year more or less, what does that matter?

This is so unfair! I can tell this is because I am a Swede!!

Oh and by the way - my cat can't join since he is dead. Or he can perhaps join, but will have a very hard time sending in time....

JessiPancake 10/ 2/2010 #

I would also join this swap if the rating requirement to join was 4.97. That extra .01 would make me feel a lot safer.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Are you saying that I discriminate against dead cats? Ohnoyoudidn't!

I'm going to make the rating requirement a 6.

Obstminkerl 10/ 2/2010 #

Oh you guys really know how to spoil the fun :o( Handmade comments...oh no!!!!

@Jaichan Could you please change the rules: a) 20 partners (I need more positive ratings) and b) NO handmade comments. I'm not allowed to use any knitting needles since I tried to knit the scarf directly out of the neighbor-sheep three years ago. My desert island is full of hidden cams and they would definitely catch me knitting a comment!! Thank you.

Oh, if anybody wants to do this swap private with me - just leave me a message. We can send whatever we want! I'd love to receive a handmade comment and I can offer awesome used socks in return!!

lizardlize 10/ 2/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

lizardlize 10/ 2/2010 #

You know I would joint his swap but I do not meet the requirements.

onlyincambodia 10/ 2/2010 #

I'm watching this swap, and am waiting until the sign up day to join. THEN, I'd like lots of Russian postcards with Malaysian coins in an envelope because I don't want your crummy handwriting screwing up all the postcards I'm going to resell!

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

Are you sure the coins in the same envelope won't screw up the postcards? I suggest asking your partner to send them in separate envelopes.

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

=singing= "Don't bogart that joint, @lizardize pass it on over to me.."

Mar1l1ze 10/ 2/2010 #

I would really love some handmade comments. With old Queen's English and dragon blood. Some fairy wings would be nice, but not a requirement. I mean really get stuck in there with your credit card details as well if you want - you can trust me :) Also, if you are my partner, DO NOT look up your stuff on e-bay. Why would you want to buy it back anyway? Oh, and I don't give hearts unless you resend. So better make two just in case the parcel gets lost (which it will).

egalite 10/ 2/2010 #

This swap would be WAY BETTER if you gave credit for other swaps where the actual assignment was to send turquoise yarn for an orange swap! My best friend and I were JUST talking about hosting one like that! We want recognition.

Also, @Jaichan when you assign parntners make sure I don't get anyone from Ohio! I have too many swap partners from there already! Thanks!

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

The hostess stole the idea for this swap from me and she hasn't given me credit for it. =waaaa=

arianneroxa 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap, but my sisters cousins cat just died, and I'm really having a hard time coming up with the money to pay for an airplane ticket to Gibraltar. You see, fluffy bumberkins always loved warm weather, and really loved Paella (especially the sort with octopus in it!) so my sisters cousin decided that the cat should be buried in Spain. We're actually having an at-sea burial, as fluffy bumberkins really loved watching fish, and I think that he would have wanted it this way.

I'm a couple of months late on some other swaps as well, but that's understandable, given the emotional trauma that I am currently enduring. Fluffy bumberkins would have wanted me to observe the traditional 17 month mourning period. To send out my swaps now would be disrespectful to his memory.

So, yeah. As you can see, I don't really have a lot of time to be sitting around on swap bot (btw, did you SEE that major drama thread in the forums about my late swaps?!?) so I'll have to give this one a miss.

ps. Please take a look at my profile, as I have listed several items that I would appreciate in a RAK swap to help me get through this time of sadness. Please make sure that you don't send me anything black, or edible, that is made from paper products, made after the year 1764, from a country other than Bhutan, and remember that you must write a seven page letter that is handwritten in Slovakian to accompany it. Thanks.

djmom11 10/ 2/2010 #

I really have to know if you are going to angel this swap, I mean it has been posted in the forum as potential flaker bait and I don't know if I want to take the chance. Really three partners!!! Are we all made out of money? How can this possibly be an international swap, can't you make it USA only. Some hostesses are just so hard to please, I'm just not sure if I should join or not.

MzPatti 10/ 2/2010 #

This swap is making my ass itch. I'm taking that as a sign that I should joint his swap. But, only if the swap hostess will agree to come to my house, clean my house, do my laundry,mow my lawn, shovel snow from my driveway,lick the salt from my McDonald's fries,pretend to enjoy sex with my husband AND boyfriend,clean up the cat box,shave my sister's back and only wear a pink Madonna glitter cone bra with orange day-glo glitter pants while joining me in my Michael Jackson Memorial Tap Dancing Tribute on off off off off (only through this holiday season) Broadway.

and I better NOT get flaked on

~shaking fist at monitor~

=X

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

We're in the top 10 swaps! Wow, for such a picky bunch, this swap is popular.

Oh, and...

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if it didn't have such a long comment thread. I certainly don't have time to read all these comments about dark chocolate & quality fudge & glittery shorts & pink shoelaces & green hair dye & ATC binders & dead cats & virgin frogs & hair shirts & oxygen bottles & foggy mornings in Moncton & Latvian dollar stores & knitting needles & dried ice cream & dead cats & Reese's peanut butter cups & laser-measured Fabergé & Malaysian coins & dragon's blood & fairy wings & turquoise yarn & did I mention dead cats yet? & octopus paella & Swedish/SouthAfrican/Slovakian squirrel-haired, diamond-encrusted, homemade, handmade, handwritten, reused, recycled, repurposed, chocolate-chip crocheted comments!

I mean, we're all busy professionals here. We work on Saturdays. We have Halloween to prepare for. You're expecting too much of us. I refuse to read a single one of the above comments. So there!

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

How is it the joint got passed to @MzPatti instead of me? =grumble grumble=

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

I've made my comments, now how do I send them? It won't let me send! I'm gonna drop this swap because the whole thing is uncooperative.

djmom11 10/ 2/2010 #

OH and just in case my partner doesn't like homemade comments here is one that belongs to someone else - except I do love fudge.

"I wolud jion tihs sawp ecepxt taht I hvae been lugahing so hrad I am ciryng and I cnat see the kaybraod amnyore.

lou 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if I am PROMISED to get a Five AND a heart -- and if it's okay to send whatever junky-junk I can find laying around ... I do NOT want to have to make a run to the dollar store.

In return, I would like winning (only) lottery tickets plus cashier's checks (no personal checks, please) and also, my partner needs to be sure to insure the package, in case we need to track it and cash out if it gets "misplaced" and does not arrive LMAO ^@@^

djmom11 10/ 2/2010 #

Another thing......how can I fulfill the requirements? The description says email but then you tell us that we just leave a comment here.......which is it???? Please be more specific. WHAT DO I DO??????? I am soooooo confused.

Cherries 10/ 2/2010 #

I refuse to be involved in a swap by such a confused (and confusing) hostess so I will not be watching OR joining this swap!

Cherries 10/ 2/2010 #

p.s. Since I left a comment, how will I get rated?

onlyincambodia 10/ 2/2010 #

Sorry, I can't send those postcards after all. The post office is keeping ALL of my outgoing and incoming mail. Booooooo.

Cherries 10/ 2/2010 #

Another thing...pahasiga, would you like to set up a private handmade version of this swap with me? I really prefer both handmade & swapping with people in other countries. If I joined this swap I'd probably only get local comments & they bore me.

lou 10/ 2/2010 #

Do I leave a comment AND sign up, or just leave a comment and let you figure it out, or should I just WATCH this swap?

And, if I WATCH this swap, will I get signed up, or do I have to come back and sign up, or will you just kind of "know" that I am interested?

If I have left a comment, that's the same as signing up anyway, so why do I have to "join" the swap?

Say, is there an adult in charge of this that could maybe answer my questions, or do I need to go to administration?

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

Do we get more hearts if we leave more comments? Or do only comments about dead cats earn extra hearts? I need to know right away.

lou 10/ 2/2010 #

I'd love to join this, but can't right now!!! Sure hope you'll do it again, it sounds like SOOOOOOOOO much fun, you can definitely count me in the next time, really.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I'm reporting all of you for not taking this swap seriously. Do you think I'm made of comments? None of you appreciate all the positivity and joy I bring to millions of swapbot users every day.

This thread is closed!

AmyMarie 10/ 2/2010 #

I am offended that the thread was closed before I could comment. If the host isn't committed to this swap, why create it? She should have thought about how others would feel about this and how others take things before she went public with all this.

Plus no one seems concerned about how the large number of comments is affecting the carbon footprint of humanity. All this space being taken up on the web is affecting the texting layer of ozone. Without texting, the future generations cannot use swap-bot. No one is thinking about this long term and making sure swap-bot will be around for our children.

xxkarenlxx 10/ 2/2010 #

But wait! How can I nag you about not getting a heart for my comment if you close the thread? What will we do? Will someone else who hacked into your account while you were laundering your hair shirt assign partners for us anyway?

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

I agree with @Jaichan I think we've done sufficient damage here. It's time to go forth and wreak chocolate-chip crocheted destruction and spread our special brand of positivity & joy elsewhere. Let's all visit the comment threads of the other Top Ten swaps and show them how we take these storebought vs. homemade vs. handmade comment issues seriously.

(I did it. For real. =wince=)

lou 10/ 2/2010 #

I changed my mind, I DO want to join, but I have to know if you'll assign partners right away, because I am going on a vacation and will be gone by Monday (kind of gone already).

I'm afraid I cannot participate unless you move the dates up for me. No one has to know

eepy 10/ 2/2010 #

WEll I just re-opened it, but only I only want Canadian comments!!! And you could you mail them Naked in a nanaimo bar.

AmyMarie 10/ 2/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

I think recycled or homemade comments should be allowed. I used recycled packaging and comments all the time. Why waste all the words and typing when we are all trying to save time and money? This swap is not environmental or economy friendly. If you change all that, I will join the swap.

lilkye 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap...but it's just not my style. I'd suggest things to do to make it better, but I can't think of anything specific...

Amigirl 10/ 2/2010 #

I will only join if:
1. Change this to unicorn delivery. This is a new delivery method only available to vestal virgins. Like me (my two kids are both immaculate conceptions). So all the swappers must be vestal virgins and must wash their comments with only pure, unscented ivory soap before sending to me in an airtight container attached to the unicorn's neck. Because I'm allergic to most types of air, all soap but ivory, and all animals but unicorns. 2. Include yarn. Special yarn. Not cheap-o acrylic and not common old cotton. I want good expensive fiber. But it can't come from a sheep or llama as I'm allergic. In fact, it must be unicorn-hair yarn. And don't forget to wash it with the ivory soap and seal it in the airtight container before you send it. Put it in a separate container from the comments. In fact, you'd better use a separate unicorn, too, as you wouldn't want to cross-contaminate the yarn and comments. I might be allergic to the combination. Better safe then sorry!

lilkye 10/ 2/2010 #

grin...it's too bad I'm .0273 pts. too low to join....it was a blast reading all the posts :^D

Mar1l1ze 10/ 2/2010 #

I'll only join if the hosts tells me where to get pre-hearted comments.

DarkSkullMistress42 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap, buttttttttttttt...beside the hostess being such a buttmunch, I try to avoid these kinds of swaps with this kind of hostess as it just brings the flakers in.

and could you please put this is for hearts too as I can only do swaps that have hearts given out.

oh yes and if you do a good job I may give you a star, but that is if I'm rated with a 5 AND heart.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

There was a swapper who used to 'close' public threads. True story.

I'm going to go to all of your houses... even if I have to walk... and hand deliver hearts and handmade comments. And fudge.

Please leave your addresses, drivers' licence numbers, mother's maiden names, credit card numbers and PINs here, and I'll see you in a few months.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Ha! Buttmunch. I sure am.

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

I just found out that someone has reused my comment! This is terrible! Why would anyone just take my comment and use it as their own?! She should be banned from the swap and outted in the public forums....then maybe tarred and feathered, drawn and quartered, lit on fire, blah blah blah...

rickeystrawberry 10/ 2/2010 #

Cherries 10/ 2/2010 #

Jaichan, if the fudge has walnuts & you can guarantee delivery by tomorrow night I will join your swap.

p.s. THE END!

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

Thank you so much, @Jaichen : my credit card is # 5555 6666 7777 8888, exp. 9/99, and the secret code number on the back is (what else would it be?) 666. I'd appreciate it if you put both dark chocolate and peanut butter fudge credits in my account. But please do it soon, because my card is full, and I need money for Hallowe'en supplies!

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

BTW, the pre-hearted comments have sold out and are on backorder and will be delivered about October 10, so can you please change the swap deadline date to after October 10 or so, in fact I will comment when the prehearted comments arrive and then you will know what date it is okay to set for the send by date. Okay? Thank you.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I want BRAND NAME pre-hearted comments. None of those pirated ones... I can TELL the difference, so don't try to pull one over on me.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

I can't read Canadian! Please don't send me Canadian comments!

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I hate Canadians. With their hockey and maple syrup and Tim Horton's coffee. Nothing but trouble, the whole lot of them.

ladywolfsong 10/ 2/2010 #

I can't believe you guys are posting comments that are funnier than mine...that is SO unfair! I put a lot of time and thought and effort into this and I don't think I'm getting anything fair in return. I deserve at least 5 hearts, and if I don't get what I want, I'm going to bad-mouth you all all over the forums and all the other swaps too for good measure. Also, the hostess of this swap is a loser. That is all.

pahasiga 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap but it is in top ten what means it has too many participants for my comfort. Sorry.

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

FiWebster 10/ 2/2010 #

How will I know if a comment with my partner's name on it is really from my partner? Isn't it possible that people are posting comments under other people's names? Or what if my partner sets up alternate accounts with other names, and posts here under those other names about how funny her (the partner's) comments are? Wouldn't that constitute fraud and warrant partial suspension?

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Correction. The hostess of this swap is a BIG loser, not just a loser. I can't even begin to imagine what it's like to live with her.

TerryF 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if it were for REAL commentators only - not for all these amateur wannabe commentators. After all, REAL commentators know how to comment and have had their comments hung in museums and art galleries. Just posting some funny stuff using a stubby crayon and an old cigarette package does not a commentator make.

pippelotje 10/ 2/2010 #

I'm sorry, have to drop, since I woke my hubby with my snorking laughter, he insists on dropping right away. thanks ladies. now I wont get my hearts, not even for reusing your comments, which I hoped was the most effortless (?) thing to do really :(

halcigone 10/ 2/2010 #

I CANT POSSIBLY JOIN THIS SWAAAP BECUASE AI AM FAR TO BUSY POINTING OUT PEOPLES INADEQUACIES IN THE FORUMS. AND I SHOULDNT HAVE TO REMNND YOU ALL THAT JUST BECAUSE YOUR NOT AWESOME ENOUGH FOR ME TO SO MUCH AS SNEEZE ON YOU DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN NOT GIVE ME HEARTS. BUT YOU CAN ONLY HAVE 3S BECAUSE YOU DON"T FART VANILLA SCENTED GLITTER LIKE ME.

dreamerkins 10/ 2/2010 #

i would join this swap, but i'm nauseated by Halcigones vanilla scented glitter farts. i will only join if they are routed through a vanilla scented fart glitter filter that re-purposes them into pumpkin pie scented fart glitter...

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

Please, please, I will not join this swap if it involves glitter!!!

Shallale 10/ 2/2010 #

@Jaichan sorry to tell you that I will not join this swap because of only ONE reason: First: as a hostess you failed to do your job. Two many flaws in this swap: Second: I have seen I at least 10 flakers that have already joined Third: I will be out of town during this swap as stated in my profile and obviously you did not take that into consideration Fourth: I hate when the swap are USA only, too much trouble to get my swaps from London or Australia and overseas Fifth: Last time I joined one of your PC swaps I did not received any of the thing I like that are clearly stated in my profile which send to the next statement Sixth: You are careless about swappers profile. I wasted my precious time to carefully list my likes and dislikes Seventh: you cannot guarantee me that my partner will give me a heart and NOT giving you a star Eight: More then I care to remember, your swaps sucks big time If you could take these small details into consideration then I will be happy to join/ Please let me know

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

I will only stay in this swap if all of you become Canadian. We can have all of you screeched in... ceremony

TreehouseMom 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if…I wasn’t so busy thinking about fudge that I now have to go to the store and buy ingredients. (I don’t believe that the hostess will really follow through and deliver fudge to each of us like she promised, since I keep my money under my mattress and don’t have a credit card number to give her!) And I also can’t join because my cat was reading the comments with me and is now having a mental break down because the other cat died from eating a box and my cat loves boxes! AND it is too hard to write a non-handmade , non-glittery comment while trying to keep up with what everyone else wants from their comments. And I don't know how long it will take to become Canadian even though I live close in Minnesota. Can that count instead?

Also, How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

BlackWolf 10/ 2/2010 #

Are used comments allowed? How about gently worn comments? I've got a trunk of crappy, I mean, vintage, comments just hanging out in the old goat barn. Probably smells a bit like goats. Or cheese. Hey, can we send cheese? Gouda? Bleu? I'd totally join this swap if we could send vintage cheese!

Shallale 10/ 2/2010 #

Can my comments be writen on naked PC and posted in envelope? Can all comments be posted before 8PM so I do not have to wake up at midnight to read them? I have seen swappers with rating 4.5 and up? How can you allow that @jaichan Is Rachel aware of what you are doing on Swapbot?

Amberingz 10/ 2/2010 #

I will join only if i am promised to receive something worth receiving. Can you promise what i get will be as cool as what i send?

Amberingz 10/ 2/2010 #

Ok fine, i will start my own swap with "must include glitter" I will make it better then yours because all my glitter will be recycled off Strippers skin.

Amberingz 10/ 2/2010 #

Lastly, i will only change my mind and join because as of yet i have not joined. I will only change my mind if the participants accept my comments as completely correct and do not tell me that i must not have read through the rules and comments before i joined or left comments..Excuse me, before i didn't join and left comments as a not joined participant. And if you are a smart enough host to realize that from this group of joined participants you MUST i exaggerate must! Start a group with all of these FAB comedians that have the balls to comment on this swap I have not joined.

grandmaroro 10/ 2/2010 #

My face id glushed, my eyebslls are bulging out of my head, my heart heart keeps skipping beatz,

I can't breatheeeeeeeeee

Why is none of the uppity swaPPWEA IN RHIA AQp//////? but i ccan't join. I forgot why. I think it was becausw of the coordinator - whatever her name is. There does seem to be a large river of love and affection flowing here, but I can't join. I can't swim and I'm not really in the mood to drown. Though it is possibble that as i HIT that join button, I will fall over DEAD from lack of oxygen.

sojourner 10/ 2/2010 #

I won't be joining this swap unless there are clear rules stating I can write in another language other than English (Elvish maybe).
I want to know that I will not be downrated if my posting is upside down owing to the fact that I live downunder .
I want the swap type changed to a type 3 because it has taken me 2 days to work out what to say and that makes it a creatively intensive swap.

Amigirl 10/ 2/2010 #

I promise to join if you allow me to put bookthongs on all the naked postcards. I'm offended by total nudity.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

The chosen languages for this swap are Visigoth and Etruscan. All other languages will result in an instant rating of 2, not 3, not 1... 2.

sojourner 10/ 2/2010 #

I want to know if I will be able to give a 4 rating if I don't agree with the comments my partners make or I just plain feel like it .

sojourner 10/ 2/2010 #

I may have to remove myself from this swap because it looks like too much fun and we all know swapping has to be serious.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Yes. You can also rate an 'M' or the bat symbol if you like.

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

If someone rates me with a bat symbol, could you make it pink and put a little bow on it? I only like girlie bats. Thanks.

DarkSkullMistress42 10/ 2/2010 #

You know that @Jaichan is standing in a corner watching us come up with our best comments, rubbing her hands together and laughing evilly. Saying you are all mine, all mine! My little puppets! Muhahaha

Bad hostess! bad,bad.

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

So far, she's only slightly evil. Totally evil would be when the sign up day comes along and she deletes the swap. LOL!

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Dance! DANCE!

Yes, well, it's been said before (several times over the years) in the forums that I don't have a mind of my own, so it's fun to have you all dancing and commenting at my bidding for a change.

Comment! COMMENT!

phtbtmgrl 10/ 2/2010 #

Will dancing get us hearts? Cause I'll dance if it gets me a heart.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

No. But not dancing wont get you a heart, either. It really is a no-win situation.

JessiPancake 10/ 2/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

DarkSkullMistress42 10/ 2/2010 #

Jaichan can do what ever she wants to you, there is no way out!

But I do have to admit Jai, funniest swap I have ever been in. Thanks:)

JessiPancake 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if Jaichan could come up with funnier and more original ideas for swaps.

blubrrymffin 10/ 2/2010 #

I would join this swap if we could send live animals to foreign countries. As it is now, I can only get cats or dogs because I live in America. What if I have a partner in Australia? Why can they not send me a Kangaroo? I want a Kangaroo...or a Kaola! stamps foot So yeah, if this swap was changed I would join.

(BTW... @Jaichan this swap rocks)

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Well. I'm going to have to ban you for having fun, Cole. This is serious non-dancing, commenting stuff.

As for the rest of you, I'm regarding all of you with a look of righteous indignation on my face. I left my camera at work, so I can't document said look, but believe me, it's indignationy. Righteously so.

DarkSkullMistress42 10/ 2/2010 #

Forgive me, please don't ban me,Oh great one! I'm not having fun at all, I bow down to you, Hail Jai, the mighty one!

LMM 10/ 2/2010 #

Well....I would join this swap but the rating requirement is just TOO LOW. 4.96? Seriously? I mean I get that it shouldn't have to be 5.0--even good swappers might get a 3 but I think to protect those of us who are going to the effort of finding just the right comment the minimum rating should be.....4.996.

Jaichan 10/ 2/2010 #

Fine. The rating requirement has been amended from 4.96 to a schwa. All those of you without the required schwa can take your non-dancing dancing shoes and comments elsewhere. I've had enough of you ingrates.

Ha! Actually, that's what my mom used to call my sisters and me. Ingrates. Then she would say, "If you don't know what that means, you can look it up in the dictionary!". To which I once replied, "Does ingrate begin with an 'e' or an 'i'?"

She didn't find that nearly as amusing as my sisters and I did.

midwestkiwi 10/ 2/2010 #

a schwa?! Schwas are so last year. I would join this swap if the rating was changed to an umlaut.

hydro75 10/ 2/2010 #

I will only join this swap if my partner includes "extras" for my three children! Savior Miracle is 27, and would love some items to brighten up my basement (where he lives), such as a Wii system and a plasma TV.

Perfection Moonbeam is 10 going on 20... literally! LOL. She loves "girly" things like stripper poles and botox injections. BUT, she is allergic to botox and has to have very speshalized treatsments, using the tears of giant sea turtles, so please be aware of this when you are sending the gift cards, please make sure they are for a doctor who speshelizes in this treatment!!!!!

Oasis Ghandi is 6 and all boy! LOL He loves the outdoors, just like his daddy, LOL. He would love gift cards to Sportsmans Wearhowse or Cabella's (make sure cards are for at least $100 please).

Thanks!!!!!!!

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

I will totally send this if I get you as a partner, @hydro75

Sapphyre 10/ 3/2010 #

I joined this swap, but I'm considering dropping out because the hostess is too cheap to angel it. I mean, if I'm going to spend no money on this swap, I expect to get my money's worth back again. I think some people are just joining this swap to get free stuff and send nothing in return.

hydro75 10/ 3/2010 #

OMG @Jaichan Perfection Moonbeam would totes love it!!! Can u please hack into swap-bot's program and make it so u get me as a partner?? If u cant, then I'm sorry but I'll have to drop from this swap.

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

Actually, here in Moncton, there is a strip club out by the high school. A few months ago, my friends and I were talking about it over breakfast at the Farmers' Market. I misheard what one of them said... instead 'strip club OUT by the high school', I heard 'strip club OWNED by the high school'. I'm not one to judge, but, wow. That would be one heck of a co-op educational program.

Rocktopus 10/ 3/2010 #

i would join this swap only if you could push back the dealine to five months from now, because i am really busy posting picturees of my dogs on facebook. and if you could make sure i get 100% real kawaii and not diddl, disney, handmade or other brands then maybe i can join. o and this cannot be international because i dont have the postage to pay for comments, its too expensive ok? thanks

DaftDabbler 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap if you changed the requirements to ban loose comments, because I have no use for them whatsoever. I can only use comment sheets. And could you please add the requirement that swappers use REAL stamps on their comments please? I hate those computer generated stickers. Yuck! Oh, and I am not going to join this swap anyway because I don't think the hostess is going to check the profiles carefully enough. AND I don't like the competitive nature of these types of comment swaps. People should understand that not all of us are professional commenters and we can't come up with the same kind of quality comment that those of you who go around commenting on swaps all the time can make! Sheesh.

DaftDabbler 10/ 3/2010 #

Are newbies allowed? I only joined 5 minutes ago and haven't bothered to put anything on my profile. And I'm probably going to flake anyway because I just joined Swap-bot as a lark.

lou 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap ONLY if the hostess stops playing favorites! I see what she's doing, and I don't like it, not one bit, making promises, to get people to join, telling them she'll get them every single loverly little thing they want! Why, she's trying to take her pick of the swappers, and then I will get someone who is probably (wait for it) CANADIAN, for God's sake!!! And totally not worthy of my junky-junk I was gon' send. We must respect the borders!! I mean, what, what, WHAT would the world be without borders!?!?

mommaviv 10/ 3/2010 #

I would totally join this swap if everyone else in the swap was required to get a sense of humor and lighten up a little! Also I could be enticed if perhaps I could get recipes featuring Hominy and okra both of which were on sale this week which means I stocked up without a clue as to what they are good for. BTW the recipes must be wheat-free, gluten free, sugar -free, lactose free, fat free and suitable to carry in my lunchbox. Is that too much to ask?

pippelotje 10/ 3/2010 #

I'll join back in if the swap comes with pre-signup beautician. I mean, really, did you see how many people are now in this swap? and I totally son't want to swap without my hair and nails done. good impressions are everything.

Onyx 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap, but I can't because I am morally superior to all of you and joining this swap would require me to lower myself to your level. Also, since I am also intellectually superior I can already see that this swap will lead to the End of Days but I can't explain to you why it harkens back to the ancient texts of Swapperapagos because your pea brain would never understand it anyway ... but trust me, this swap is the WORST SWAP EVER!!111!!!!! and you will all regret joining it because it will ruin your lives!

Onyx 10/ 3/2010 #

Also, I would join this swap but I can't because my lawyer told me not to: I am suing the hostess and I am suing Swap-Bot for intentional infliction of emotional distress. I was so stressed about this swap and it's confusing requirements, and the hostesses refusal to adhere to my insane demands, that it caused me massive harm. Also it caused so much stress on my marriage that I had to be hospitalized, and now my husband is divorcing me because of THIS swap ... not because of my addiction to swapping, not because of any other issues in our marriage, because of THIS one swap and it's all @Jaichen s fault. And Rachel's fault. And Travis' fault. And the fault of everyone who posted here. In fact, it's all your fault --- everyone who ever posted on Swap-bot on any thread ever. I am suing everyone! For everything! You will all go crazy with me! Wheeeeee!

City700 10/ 3/2010 #

I deteste swaps,! But for this one , I want to exchange with someone in a country as far as possible of mine (France), I want to send an ENORMOUS package, containing my husband (remote control for TV included) .his vaccines are up to date, and for extra I join deodorant for shoes ! isn't it wonderful??

City700 10/ 3/2010 #

Jaichan ! I want you change the dead line right now, my package really smells bad and I order you to delete the comments of the other participants, so that we see only mine, otherwise it is to you that I shall send my swap!

City700 10/ 3/2010 #

I want an answer now!!!! Are you sleeping? It's 9AM ! I'm fed up to wait!!!! It is the ugliest swap I have never made!!! In more it is necessary to write in English because nobody speaks French !!!!! No, French people are not grumping all the time !!!

pahasiga 10/ 3/2010 #

Oh yes, @lou reminded me, I don't care about recipes but I would be thankful if you posted only gluten-free comments for the chance of my 8yo licking the monitor.

siouxx05 10/ 3/2010 #

Pfft... I prefer chocolate covered comments... so I can lick the monitor..!

SwedishMum 10/ 3/2010 #

I would so love to do this swap, BUT all the comments are so ordinary. I mean we swap to get quality aren't we?
Now I have to go to the bathroom and wah my hands, put lotion on and do my fingernails cause I had to touch the computer to write this comment.

Mar1l1ze 10/ 3/2010 #

Now we're required to send TV remote controls?! This is getting way out of hand!

Masterbard 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap if you changed it from international to local only, because as EVERYONE else on this site knows and EVERYONE else in this thread has posted, international is too expensive. So please make it local to MY country, South Korea. Really.

Oh, but I am the only swapper from South Korea (though I'm Canadian). So I need some of you honorary Canadians (is that a redundancy?) to move over to South Korea so that you can join this swap as well so I can get some gold-encrusted dark chocolate-covered glittery pumpkin-pie scented comments (that have been washed carefully in sea turtle tears, please, and packaged by Faberge frogs dressed in Alice-in-Wonderland outfits [but not the classic Alice, only the Tim Burton Alice] in virgin unicorn hide tied with Gleipnir [the cord to bind Fenrir, which see] and sent via private Concord)

Amberingz 10/ 3/2010 #

LMFAO!!!! ONLY IF I AM INCLUDED IN THE history books when this goes public because you all know that we are a part of swap bot strictly to become a "winner", a Celebrity. We all need to admit that because we missed the train in "the good ole days" we have come to Swap-Bot for the fulfillment of the dreams that never lived; they DIED. But they will live again here, can you feel it? Guinness book is calling now, did you hear the phone ringing?

OMG~! why did you have to mention there is a forum where they might talk about me!!!?? I can't bear to look. NOOOO! I have purposely avoided places other then those that will bring out my artistic ability. My life I have to face every day is too filled with paparazzi and magazine covers that do nothing but "bag" on my Swap-Bot Profile. I thought it would be different here, i thought you people might except me for who i am...I thought you UNDERSTOOD.

Only if you answer yes to all of this and those comments previously written about strippers and otherwise will i let you have me.

Unmutual 10/ 3/2010 #

Hilariously, the rating requirement is actually too high for me. Barstools!

So. Would join this swap, but actually can't.

:p :p :p

Peacewytch 10/ 3/2010 #

Are we allowed to send homemade CDs instead of comments?

DeeDee 10/ 3/2010 #

I am only watching this swap. I am reluctant to join because most of the comments have typos. I mean, really, what hostess would let these type of people join any swap. My cat was going to join, but she does not have a completely filled out profile and she can't find the directions that explain what that means. And since this swap doesn't allow me to post my comment in purple, I now decided to unwatch the swap.

City700 10/ 3/2010 #

And that: Leave a Comment Enter a message below and click Leave Comment to leave a comment. So I leave a comment how to leave a comment,and I click leave a comment to leave a comment.

ButterflyDreams 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join but only if @jaichan promises to assign partners at 12.01am.

charlottenc 10/ 3/2010 #

Are you all crazy?? I'm joining this swap!!!! After my recent heart attack and hospitalization, I didn't think I could do Swap-bot any more, too chicken I couldn't get things out on time if I died or something. But here is a swap where I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, send nothing at all??!!! I'm IN!!!!!!!

Just a few things, though. Because of my health issues, I can't really use anything but pure oxygen. So please don't send food, material, knitted/crocheted things, fish, chocolate, candles, scented anything, naked postcards (the shock, you know), postcards in envelopes (too hard to open the darn things!), or dead cats. Now I have a cat I could send if someone would promise she would end up dead, she's a dear thing who does wonders with upholstery and brand-new expensive fabric screens.

Hmm, on second thought, I may not be able to join this swap after all. Just started reading some of these comments here and the hostess doesn't sound nice, or even sane, at all. It's a shame, really. I had such nice comments to send.

Oh, well, the sun is shining and there is a whole world away from the computer screen, just waiting for me to join in, so happy swapping, all you losers who can't get a life and just sit around waiting for the mailman (hello! be PC, it's "mail carrier" now) to bring them some exquisite, expensive item because they sent some poor soul a piece of junk they found in a trash bin. Losers!!! I would send my partners a letter "L" for their foreheads, ha-ha-ha!!!! What? I don't want to take my medicine now!!! Leave me alone!!! I don't want to put on a jacket, I'm not cold!!!! Help!!!!!!! The arms are too long...............

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

I'm going to assign the partners right now. And then I'm going to unassign them, and reassign them this afternoon.

And then I'm going to delete every second comment. Or all of them. Or just the ones that don't have the letter 'e' in them.

Ooh! I'm also thrilled to see that I've been threatened with legal action! That hasn't happened here in a while! Hooray!

moowee 10/ 3/2010 #

I have a bunch of recent 1's. I will explain now so that you do not boot me out for them being unexplained per the requirements above. I signed for all those swaps and then realized that they were lame so I just didn't do it. I am sure that you understand.

This swap is amazing and I have a bunch of comments ready. I promise that I will not flake on this swap.

Please - will you let me join?

sebastian122 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap if I could send whatever I have immediately to my left, without a box or envelope and apply the mailing label to it directly. I know I've been banned, but I'm back..err...actually this is my mother's account.

voodooninja 10/ 3/2010 #

geez, now that my potential partners are willing to change their hair colors, i'd try to join this swap, but there are so many people who have something against this swap that i don't know if i want to join anymore...i mean, look at all the comments from others finding things wrong with the swap! And yet, these people seem to be joining...how am i to know that all these people won't flake on me? Swapping is about me me me, so if i don't get anything then i'm going to take it personally....i may have to drop :(

ladydy5 10/ 3/2010 #

Wow! There are a lot of comments right here without joining the swap. I think maybe you need to get a group started instead. Venting is good for you but what about the person who gets all the comments personally. Will think about it.

MzPatti 10/ 3/2010 #

HOT DAMN! She sent me MONEY to join this crappy little swap!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA!

~scurrying off to join swap~

sebastian122 10/ 3/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

sebastian122 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join, but I joined, looked at the other swaps...saw several with unibrows...and decided it wasn't worth risking my perfect 5 rating and left the swap.

If you were to change the requirements to 'only those named Pattie' were allowed to join, I might reconsider.

Watching for now.

midwestkiwi 10/ 3/2010 #

Is there a minimum or maximum word count for comments? I am seeing some that are a bit wordy, in my estimation, and others that are so brief as to be non-existent.

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

I'm hoping for the unpunctuated section of James Joyce's 'Ulysses' in every language represented Swap-bot swappers in the comment section. So, think of that as your minimum.

Hmm. At some point, I should probably delete my profile and then claim that I've been hacked. I'll keep you posted.

moowee 10/ 3/2010 #

I am dropping this stupid swap. There is a lot of talk about used or recycled comments and comments with glitter. This is all just too much for me.

sebastian122 10/ 3/2010 #

Marco?

FiWebster 10/ 3/2010 #

I don't think anyone's mentioned dotee dolls yet. Are we allowed to send dotee dalls instead of comments? I've never made a dotee doll but I'm so eager to start. I have an idea for a dotee dall that is male and is fully anatomically correct except for not having a head because a serial killer decapitated it. Any maybe another dotee doll that is the serial killer. Isn't that the bestest idea ever? You better not use it, though! It's my idea--mine, I tell you!

madkow 10/ 3/2010 #

i would join this swap if there wasn't so much to read!! and if everyone would go ahead and send me an envelope full of money....can we make that happen please????

sebastian122 10/ 3/2010 #

Kimmakesstuff 10/ 3/2010 #

geekgirl33 10/ 3/2010 #

All I really want is a Crystal unicorn That would make the swap the most awesome swap ever. but some how no one ever get that so that is what I am not joining.

ctyankee 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap but I have too many to finish up so I'm going to watch for now & sign up later ... maybe after it closes. I probably can't join anyway because I'm not Canadian & I don't know how to become Canadian. Would I have to move to Saskaschewan? Anyway I don't speak Canadian. Or Elvish. I used to speak Elvish, but that was a long time ago & you know the old adage, use it or lose it. Well, I've lost Elvish & I can't find him. Same with Etruscan & Visigoth. And what 's all this blather about used or recycled comments? I spend a lot of time & energy & money on new comments, but I'm going to get used comments in return? Or maybe no comments at all? Then who will angel this swap? It's not fair to expect someone to use new comments & then get recycled comments in return! The rules are not clear. Unless the rules become clear, I cannot join this swap. It would be against everything I believe in. I believe in hearts & stars & the Number 5. If someone can guarantee that these beliefs can be upheld, I will join. If not, then in good conscience I cannot join. Help me. Pleeease!

BlackWolf 10/ 3/2010 #

Oh come on, all of you are chicken! How can you not join a swap that suggests we send cheese scented garbage, sorry, collectible comments completely in Latin? Do not be afraid of the cheese man, it's just cheese! Latin cheese!

funkhoup 10/ 3/2010 #

These comments are hilarious. We have stick bugs in this area. I think my partners and hostess and fellow swappers might love for me to send them some. Nice way to get rid of them. I'm not going to join because there's too many comments to rid.
This is a super swap. ;)

Drachenfrau 10/ 3/2010 #

AWESOME!!! :D

I would really want to join this swap, as this is hosted by the great Jaichan...

... BUT I can all tell you that this is not started by the real Jaichan! This is a clone! And I have evidence for this.

The real Jaichan would set no rating min. and would allow everyone to join, as she loves all the flakers like her children.

The real Jaichan would never make this an electronic swap, as she loves to send examples of her outrageous good cooking talents!

So sorry, but I can't join this swap as swapping with a clone is against my religion!

midwestkiwi 10/ 3/2010 #

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

Yup. I'm a droid. Or a Stepford Wife. @Drachenfrau is on to me. The real Jaichan shares a birthday with Drachenfrau, so she knows these things.

The real Jaichan is off making carrot cupcakes for her coworker's birthday. Well, she should be. If she's not, you are allowed to yell at her.

moowee 10/ 3/2010 #

I am back in the swap but only under these conditions:

  1. I live in a house. My partner must live in a house too.
  2. I am 43 years old. My partner must be my age. I do not want comments that are too young or too old for me.
  3. I have 2 dogs. My partner must be a dog lover. No "cat people" please.
  4. I am married. My marriage is important to me so I will be unable to swap with anyone single, divoreced or widowed.
  5. I am a well established swapper - I am unwilling to swap with a newbie.
  6. I am allergic to shellfish. So shellfish in any of my comments or the comments of others. This is very improtant because i am allergic.
  7. I do not smoke. My partner must be a non-smoker.
  8. I eat meat and love it. I will not be party to a swap with a vegaterian or a vegan. I just do not understand such things. 8 . . .

You know what? I have a lot more rules- I am the perfect swap partner for me. I will join back in only if you promise that I can swap with myself! I assure you, this will be the only way I can enjoy this stuipd swap.

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

I only want to swap with people who have green eyes like me. And who have just made carrot cupcakes. And love scallops. Too bad for you, moowee.

I had a Boston Terrier when I was growing up! His name was Ben and he loved rice cakes. He got angry at my mother when she paid more attention to me and my sisters than him. He would snort and try to head butt her.

pahasiga 10/ 3/2010 #

Has someone already asked whether naked comments are allowed?

Jaichan 10/ 3/2010 #

Only if they're handmade.

weeatcrayons 10/ 3/2010 #

I'm terribly disappointed. This swap offends me! @Jaichan you should be completely ashamed of yourself for hosting this type of swap! I can't believe it. This just makes me want to go and start a Frustrations thread about you! huffs off and throws a tantrum

moowee 10/ 3/2010 #

@Jaichan - my boys are jealous too. It is a Boston thing.

I need my swap to include someting for my dogs too!

Carolinev237 10/ 3/2010 #

I was going to join this swap but was unsure which of my many profiles to join under, and after reading the previous comments for over half an hour, I have decided not to proceed. For one people's punctuation is pathetic, how I am supposed to read any of it? Also you do not allow comments with stickers on them and I like stickers, lots of them, actually I may go and create 6 swaps the same now. I also like hearts and if you can't guarantee me a heart then I am not joining. I shall pm you morning, noon and night if I don't get a heart and if you are 2 minutes late in rating me. I know when your mail arrives and I know you didn't rate me as soon as my envelope landed on your mat, and don't you know the stress that causes me, I now have to update my profile and post a PF thread on my drama so I can get sympathy and be excused for not sending any of my swaps. I will then disappear for 6 months and come back as I shall have run out of stickers by then. Good day! x

Carolinev237 10/ 3/2010 #

I am so angry I am going to report you all especially @melusina for flaunting her dead cat on everyone else's swaps. I want the dead cat and expect it to be sent before the signup date or else!!

Seriously @melusina I am crying with laughter now, so I can't join any swaps as I can't breathe or see with the tears x

weeatcrayons 10/ 3/2010 #

Here's my wishlist for this swap

  • A huge Coach bag...it MUST be authentic, if you send a fake one I'll be horribly disappointed and will give you a 3 right off the bat
  • Japanese Kawaii - these must be from Japan only and not Korea or China or any other Asian or different country. They must only have dancing bears on each item.
  • Playstation 3 or Wii Games - New and original only, no copies and they must contain the original box with all the original papers in them. If the box is opened or the cd is messed up in any way I will assume it's used and rate a 3.
  • Please no handmade items at this time
  • MAC Pigment Eyeshadows in only browns, light pinks...these must be AUTHENTIC mac and purchased from their website only. I must see your receipt as well.
  • Cute Flip Flops, but they must only be from a certain store that I will pick for you to choose from. If they are bought anywhere else I will rate a 3!

I so can't wait to swap with you guys!! This will be so much fun!!

DeeDee 10/ 3/2010 #

I have been watching this swap and I was about to join, but then I saw alot of marco/polo comments. Is it required that we play that game. If so, I'm not joining.

ctyankee 10/ 3/2010 #

@Jaichan I have green eyes & love scallops, & I made carrot cupcakes last week -- does that count? (I bet I still have one or two here ... I can send them to you. No, it's not a bribe. It's not! It's not!)

@pahasiga naked comments would be offensive ... especially used naked comments. However, putting them into an envelope might work ... especially a plain brown wrapper.

But, no, I will be strong. I will hold out for the fives & the hearts. Lotsa hearts. And fudge. I still want my fudge!

sebastian122 10/ 3/2010 #

@DeeDee Marco?

mizvicky 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap,but I want it sent naked,NO comments at all.. NO one plays fair here.. SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!

mizvicky 10/ 3/2010 #

Another reason why I am not joining is because the last time I join a swap, the journal did not have the colors I wanted in it.. It was embellished with buttons.. i TOLD my partner NO buttons.. She sends it anyway.. Guess what flippin happened??? My pet rat ate it..ATE it!!! The plastic could not digest!! Do you KNOW what happens to a Rat when they can not digest plastic??!! DO YOU!!!

Well let me tell you... You have to give it an enema!! HA..have you ever tried to give a RAT an enema?? Well. It is not the prettiest sight.. First of all, the bottle says to squeeze til all liguid is gone out of bottle. I DID.. My Rat had enema water draining out his poor nose and eyes.EVEN his ears.. Thats not the worse of it..

Ever seen a rat with diarrhea?? THATS not a pretty sight either.. Everything but the dang button came out.Trying to hold him still was the devil I tell you..

rat farts are the worst.. his little eyes were bugging out..

I finally had to give him, some charcoal....he threw it up,, Out came the chewed up button... Sigh..

I sent it back to my partner.Since it was a private swap she could rate me.. After all,she stated she wanted recycled materials.. Did she appreciate it?? Heck no..She gave me a one, a freaking one saying it smelled funny and had a weird color to it..REALLY???!!!

So, you can not please everyone,I have found this out..

My rat has not been the same.. he sees buttons and passes right out..

djmom11 10/ 3/2010 #

Is this a strip comment game? How does it work? Strippers in highschools??? I never had that class when I went to highschool. And what the heck is Visigoth and Etruscan, I never learned those languages either.

So now the person above me and below me has to remove an article of clothing. NEAT GAME!

missxkay 10/ 3/2010 #

I'd join the swap if you moved the send by date. You see, my car is going to break down tomorrow, and I don't think I'll have enough money for postage to send my end!

beadchik 10/ 3/2010 #

I took off my left sock....and then my dog died from the stench so I can't join this swap cuz I have to go bury him now....

SusanSpooky 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap if everyone I have known and loved hadn't just spontaneously combusted. Now I can't finish any of my swaps! What, you want proof? You think that if that many people spontaneously combusted it would at least be all over the news?? You don't need any of that!!! You have my WORD, see, I totally PROMISE, that they all just went and got all spontaneously combusted. Now, you believe me, don't you?

DanaJeanWard 10/ 3/2010 #

I want to join this swap but I am too busy right now with other swaps. I do not know why I feel the need to comment on your swap and say that, I just like to see myself type and see if I can get responses because I am needy. So yep, too busy with swaps like these... I am in a Halloween candy swap and I hope my partner reads the comments on how I am allergic to sugar and sugar substitutes. I am also in a swap where it says senders choice but if I do not get what I WANT then I WILL complain to the coordinator! And I am in a swap where we all just comment on each other's profiles but I cannot find a single thing I like about my partners, so I may flake...

voodooninja 10/ 3/2010 #

OMG, too many people are double posting...that's it...i really must consider being out of this swap...

magicjessnrach 10/ 3/2010 #

I would have joined this swap if the hostess was not a FOKKER!

Also I insist all comments made to me must be hand embroidered and I can't see that in the requirements!

midwestkiwi 10/ 3/2010 #

Polo!

@Weeatcrayons -I think you should out her in the frustrations forum. I tried to PM her about her requirements and she had such a total attitide I brought it up in the PFs that this swap might be flaker bait and she was still just "bring it" I think @Jaichan is just an attention whore. So maybe you shouldn't out her, it would just give her what she wanted. Never mind.

Jenna83 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap, except I don't celebrate Halloween, so since it's taking place in the month of October (when Halloween is) I can't guarantee that I will be available to send and rate on time. (Three days, come on?!?) It's such a stressful time for me trying to concentrate on avoiding all Halloween related activities in this month. Is there anyway you would consider doing it again next month? That would really be a more convenient and less stressful time for me. Oh, and leave me PM if you do, so I know that you are doing it. Because, I'm really too lazy to check to see if it gets re-posted next month. But, I really want to join! Thanks!

hollycm6 10/ 3/2010 #

"OMG, too many people are double posting...that's it...i really must consider being out of this swap..."

I would join this swap, but this was MY comment and @voodoononja stole it AND double posted it, which really toasts my cakes. Also she added OMG and left out SIS, which just eats cookies. Seriously.

B ) the issue of the recycled comments has not been addressed, but has been mentioned by several competent swappers. @jaichan will recycled comments be allowed? And how will we rate our partners in that case? Will we need to rate them with a recycled heart? I am seriously into recycling but recycled comments can get pretty thin, and allow a lot of room for misinterpretation. I'm worried about the whole Canadian bend as well. I can cypher out Spanish but Canadian is difficult. And it's cold there. It's just unfair. Have you really thought this swap through???

And thirdly, I cannot abide naked comments in my house. I am a good Christian woman and if my children see a naked comment here I will have a lot of 'splainin to do. I just can't face that right now. I will ONLY join if all comments are clothed in rhetoric or sarcasm. Period. Phallic comments? Please redress them. I'm not kidding.

Also, if I join, I will have to drop something from my dashboard, and that can be hazardous to driving. An unsafe swap is an unsafe swap, fun or not. I'm not sure it is worth the risk. What do you guys think?

hollycm6 10/ 3/2010 #

And shoot, @voodooninja did some type of voodooninja stuff on me so I messed her name up. That just is not right. Stealing my comment then messing up my typing. I think I am owed a public apology.

hollycm6 10/ 3/2010 #

Also I am concerned that @jaichan hasn't been on this thread in a while. Has she gone missing with our comments??? And really there are way too many participants for it to be successful. I have joined, but I will be checking through the participant list myself, and if I find questionables I am going to have to fire off some thinly veiled witticisms at them.

Amigirl 10/ 3/2010 #

I joined, but I may have to drop now as none of the stores in my area have the 35-count matchbox that @Jaichan has PM'd me that I have to send her as a gesture of "good faith" if I want to stay in because I'm actually too new to be allowed in comment swaps. I can only find the 250-count and 32-count boxes. If I divide the 250-count box into 7.14 pieces, and send you one, decorated nicely, would that do? I can fill it with 24-carat gold-plated bits of unicorn horn if that would help???

valkyr 10/ 3/2010 #

I would join this swap if the hostess was more specific about the size restrictions. I would use a 12x15 size padded envelope for more sticker extravaganza!! I don't want to get a lame 4x6 envelope from my partner in return. If Jaichan fixes it, we would LOVE it here if my partner sends my daughter some stickers from these subjects: dinosaurs, stars, tulips, Batman and Jesus. Please include them in the package in a small envelope. On this envelope you can write "JENNIFER" in big letters so she can read it. She's only 3. She gets real cranky if she doesn't receive stickers in my swaps, I just love her to bits.. <3<3<3<3 Hearts!

valkyr 10/ 3/2010 #

Wait, this is a matchbox swap now? Sorry everyone!! Well you can just send the stickers to my daughter in a extra matchbox. It's OK!! ~^.^~ MEOW!

Peacewytch 10/ 4/2010 #

I am going to join this swap even tho I am dead. I asked my husband to let my partners know I am dead so they won't expect anything from me. Please continue to send RAKs and stickers to my address c/o my husband, who is called Jennifer, and could use some cheering up because I am dead. Who's cat is this?

City700 10/ 4/2010 #

PFFFFFFFFFF, I'll drop that swap because too many stupid people don't know how to click leave a comment to leave a comment ! Except for Peacewytch of course....

I would join this swap, but it seems like there are wayyy too many people to send to & i really can"t afford to send to that many right now....& by the who, I'm allergic to swaps, so if there was any way to send a swap without really swapping ( & of course get a heart just for possibly sending a swap...) Then I would consider signing up for this one!

mommaviv 10/ 4/2010 #

I have decided that this swap is soooooo cool I want to join again but only if I can swap the stuff my first three partners send with my second three partners That way the second three people get the really cool comments that were sent for me and the first three people know that their comments went to a good home. I will require an angel for my six partners as reading all of theses comments has taken up so much of my time that I can no longer guarantee a comment from me to three people. Also my favorite color is green so please make sure my partners only send my comments via an environmentally friendly computer made from recycled tires and twist ties. Thank you.

Annesdatter 10/ 4/2010 #

I would totally join, except I don't like black and white... or letters... Or generally swapbot, because there are so many flakers, but I will totally put it on my watchlist

siouxx05 10/ 4/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

inthewild 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join immediately if you can stop me from making splotches of water all over my workspace - how can you make me laugh so much.......but just wait....you will get an original 'drowned rat' look alike electronic swap, and you'd better rate me or otherwise...... I don't like flakers; till then I won't join but be watching you!!

dulcimer 10/ 4/2010 #

I won't be joining because there are way to many comments and I can't read them all so how do I know if someone hasn't already made the same comment as me and gets upset because I am copying their comment word for word and I didn't know because I just didn't read all the comments because there were too many and some were to long and then I had to go to bed because I am in a different time zone than every one else.

Emkay 10/ 4/2010 #

I really would like to join this swap, if you please could change the rating requirements. You ask for a 4,96, but I have a 5,0, so I really can´t join, because I fear, that my partner will rate me down, because I do not meet swap requirements. And pleeeaaase can you make it something else but electronical. I love to recieve mail in my letterbox and my boss does no longer allow me to use my business mailaddy for swapping. So I think I do not ask for much, at least way less than all the other people, so it is really easy for you to change this swap so I can join. And btw if there is someone before me with the same comment, than it is defenitely stolen from me, because I have been thinking about this swap the second it was set up, but I had to think so hard if I could join or not, until this suspicious looking host(ess) changes the swap to my linking. I hope, you all understand that.

AsAlwaysAngela 10/ 4/2010 #

I would totally join if I could send a homemade comment to my 3 partners instead of a store bought one. Also, as long as I don't get banned for having all 5's and almost as many hearts, but silly me... I'm still a newbie! I should have read the fine print where it says I have to have 100 completed type 10 swaps to not be a newbie anymore.

Emkay 10/ 4/2010 #

Oh, and while you are changing this swap to please me, could you also change it to European or even better German only? There are so many international swaps, I want to have one exclusively for Germans.

Emkay 10/ 4/2010 #

Sorry, I forgot to ask another thing. Could you please make it a swap requirement, that all have to leave the comments in German. You always expect me to speak your language, so out of courtesy, YOU can speak my language for once.

user2637 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if it had fewer complainers. You all need to mellow out!!! Also, the send date is too close; can you move it out 5 weeks because I'm going on vacation on Gilligan's Island and I hear the wifi out there is sketchy at best.

Pyxidragon 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap, really, but I'm laughing so hard at all of your ill-advised comments that I shot a bit of cold pizza out my nose.

I'm sorry, I'm rather against any swap that causes me physical harm...and pizza through the nasal cavity hurts like the dickens! (true story!)

midwestkiwi 10/ 4/2010 #

@Emkay Wie bewerte ich, wenn ich einen Kommentar, wie es von jemand anderem als meinem Partner wurde schaut zu bekommen? Gibt es eine Regel über Swapping recycelt Kommentare?

Drachenfrau 10/ 4/2010 #

@Emkay

Hervoragende Idee! Ich bin auch dafuer!!! :D

pinkbuttons 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap but just do not understand whats going on. We have 3 partners so do we make 3 comments? Hmmmm........I guess if I can drink coffee while doing this swap I'm in!!
OMG.....There is just to many post to read!! But the ones that I have read are so funny!! I can't wait to see who my partners are. I would join this swap if I had more time to get things ready to be ship to the UK or CA. Time flies when your having fun and I don't want to be late on sending to my partner!! :))

Ky 10/ 4/2010 #

I so was going to make a swap just like this! It came to me in a dream and I told my husband and the dog all about it so you clearly copied my idea! I am so angry about this that I am not going to join your swap! On second thought I am going to join so I can see who else joined so I can warn them about what a copy cat you are! Then I am going to unjoin and then join again every 15 minutes to see who else might have joined. Grrrr!

Ky 10/ 4/2010 #

And...........Marco!

Drachenfrau 10/ 4/2010 #

Polo!

EddyG 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm just fed up of all these American swaps. American swaps ain't no good anyways...what?....it's international....Ok these International swaps ain't no good anyways

EddyG 10/ 4/2010 #

I also not joining 'cos I know you are going to pair me up with another Brit. who is just going to spend £3 sending me stuff I could buy in my OWN Poundshop. What's the point?????

ctyankee 10/ 4/2010 #

Polo!

ctyankee 10/ 4/2010 #

Hey, I joined this swap against my better judgement because I can't speak Canadian, although I do speak Connecticution & they both begin with the letter "C" so that's close, right? But now I'm reading that I have to learn German, too? Do I look like a linguist to you? What did they say? Are they talking about me? Again? I'll not stand still for that! (ctyankee dances around the breakfast table) Does this mean I have to move to Berlin? I hear it's really nice there, but I still can't speak German. I practiced on my cat but he took one look at me & left the room. Whatsup with that? No one better send any glitter on their comments -- I don't want used comments, remember, just new -- but no glitter. My house is spotless, except for the cat hair & the dog hair, but that doesn't really count. And don't give me a swap partner who says she doesn't want cat hair because that's extra & I want a heart for adding it to the naked envie I'll be sending her.

08miccor 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if only jaichan had never called it "Easy peasy lemon cheesy." So cheesy... ^_^

pippelotje 10/ 4/2010 #

If @Emkay gets her German version, I DEMAND a dutch one as well. only for Belgian people. on second thought, make that bilingual, I won't be caught up in the drama with all those Wallonians having a go at me for being a Flemish speaking one. so yeah, dutch/french/german pretty please.

estrones 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if it allowed me! I have a 4.9040 rating and it only allows above 4.96. Boo hoo! Now I'll have to go post on the forums about what a meany weeny poo-poo head you are @Jaichan and make a swap all of my ownsy wonsy and you can't join so there! (giggling into my tea cup) And anyways, I'm a beginner at handmade comments. Can I slap a sticker on a piece of paper and call it done and send that instead? I'd only want mine to be bought from Gucci of course.

LynnViolet 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap but it is OPEN to the general FLAKING public!! If this was a group swap, I would definitely join. I would like you to consider changing a few things, the amount of partners, too many, the time limit, too short,the fact that there are no color paramiters, PURPLE of course [ DUH lynnviolet], the instructions, too complicated. If these things were changed I would at least put this on watchlist, but then I still may not join this swap. And the hostess, are they kidding?? Have heard a lot about her...... I would have join this swap if there were extras for my cats, yes my cats. My kids are older & don't care about swaps, unless of course you would send money, video games, drugs & alcohol. But my kitties would like treats, good ones, no dollar store treats for these ladies! And what about these angels, who are they? Floating around, mother Teresa like, filling the responsibilities of lazy swappers. So are you gonna angel this swap or what?? I really was totally gonna join this swap, but too many flakers in the general public & the angles need a holiday :]

pahasiga 10/ 4/2010 #

Here, a purple glittery comment:

JessiPancake 10/ 4/2010 #

I will join this swap ONLY if you let FaerieGoddess (or any of her other identities) in this swap as well.

DanaJeanWard 10/ 4/2010 #

UMMM, HELLOOOOOOO! Can we get partners laready? Do you sleep until noon? Surely you don't have other things to do besides sit around and swap-bot all day! I have been sitting here since midnight, you will probably not get a star with that lazy hosting! ;)

pahasiga 10/ 4/2010 #

Hey, I have sat here from midnight two days ago (and my time) and still no partners! I don't know what is she thinking!!

pippelotje 10/ 4/2010 #

tssss. what a host. it's almost evening and STILL no partners. @Jaichan that's no attitude for a hostess.... that star you obviously desperately want, I don't know if you're getting it....

nlgrudis 10/ 4/2010 #

Ok the voices in my head tell me not to join this swap because ALL of you are out to get me! Then the space men came and abducted me, held me against my will and made me post this comment, in my husband's tuxedo with socks on my head and gloves on my feet. They wiped my mind clean now I can't speak Earthling at all. They also made me eat the dead cat then spit it out alive. But I would join this swap only if I can have $20 million (in space man money) deposited to my overseas bank on the moon. Oh the voices in my head just said I can join but must flake on everyone or else they will stop talking to me.

nlgrudis 10/ 4/2010 #

Oh no!! The Evil Flying Monkeys want to join now! I will not swap with them ever!! I refuse to join now unlesss you ban the Evil Flying Monkeys!

Sparkle 10/ 4/2010 #

Gosh. I'll consider joining this swap, so long as i don't have to read all of the comments... I got about halfway! Oh and Is it okay if i send a pair of shopbought socks for the hand-knittd sock part? Only I can't knit so I thought I'd buy some cheapo machine-knitted ones instead. Is this okay? :) Oh and I'll be very upset if I don't get a heart, I actually had to walk to the shop to get them!!

MamaD 10/ 4/2010 #

The ONLY way I'll join is if you will all support my plan for World Domination.

Unless you can guarantee that I will get @halcigone as a partner, then I might join since I have a magical envelope that just so happens to have been blessed by 3 virgin frogs.

If you don't promise me her as a partner, than I am reporting you to Rachel. On second thought, I'm reporting you either way.

pippelotje 10/ 4/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

MamaD 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm also reporting @pippelotje for asking that question.

pippelotje 10/ 4/2010 #

@MamaD if I support your World Domination Thingy, would you consider not reporting me? I'm great at admiring Superior Beings.

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

I will definitely join this if you change the postal requirements in Australia. Their government doesn't allow packaged meals containing meat, fruit, pine cones or cardboard. I really think my partner would love egg cartons full of bananas, pine cones and those ramen noodles with chunks of meat-stuff in them.

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

Crap! I just realized these comments are all in English. I don't speak English. I'm going to have to drop if you don't change all the comments to Swahili.

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

Wait, three partners? Does this mean that I have to leave 3 different comments? Can you change it so I only have to leave one?? I can't possible think of three different complaints about this swap.

sebastian122 10/ 4/2010 #

Marco!

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

estrones 10/ 4/2010 #

@pahasiga I've been sitting here since midnight six days before the swap was even made and I'm mad she hasn't assigned partners yet! And I'm not even going to have a partner! (Hey, I could partner myself!)

cozy86 10/ 4/2010 #

I will join this swap if it had some kawaii in it ^^ I just found out how cute they are and loveing them kawaii kawaii kawaii I want has much kawaii that I can get lol how many times did I say kawaii?? ^^

P.S. LoL this is so funny and fun :P loveing it

Cinnabear 10/ 4/2010 #

Who is this marco? and why does he have to play Polo? Maybe Marco would rather play Leap Frog - I would only join if Marco is allowed to play Leap Frog and Polo is banned!

midwestkiwi 10/ 4/2010 #

Leap?

MamaD 10/ 4/2010 #

Yes, since you have agreed to become my minion @pippelotje then I won't report you. However, I will be reporting everyone else here, in seperate emails, since Rachel has nothing more to do with her time, then read every single one of my complaints AND respond to each and every one.

BlackWolf 10/ 4/2010 #

Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffttttttttttt =P

Oh I am SO NOW TELLING! @WyndTalker just blew a raspberry at me and I am MORE THAN SURE that is against the SB rules!

Thanks @pipelotje ..you are doing well as your role as minion!

DaftDabbler 10/ 4/2010 #

Wait a minute, where in the swap description does it say we have to leave 3 comments? I would join this swap if I only had to leave one comment, because I don't have time to leave three separate comments (or... do I?). I can't believe the requirements have been changed. I'm dropping the swap. What kind of hostess does that?

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

I would LOVE to join this swap if it weren't so dang complicated! Why is everything so complicated? Why do coordinators have to make everything impossible to understand?? I want to boycott this swap =D >lovin' it<

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm sorry, but I hate cigarette smoke on my comments. Could my partners please not be smokers because I would just hate to have smelly comments. @ jaichan...I'm pretty disappointed about the fudge anyway. I only like handmade BLUE fudge. Is that a PROBLEM or something? I would totally join this swap if we had another cooridinator...can we vote on that???

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

Who in the heck are Marco and Polo and WHY are they leaping over the frog? ?? I don't get it. I'm not joining..

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm back. I was just thinking .... I would probably join if this was a private swap or something.....

pickleme 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm all for a vote! Go OfficeWeed!

Are we voting about fudge?

Jaichan 10/ 4/2010 #

Sorry! I have been neglecting my hosting duties. I went to bed early last night and just got home from work.

This swap has really taken off! I was just being silly; I thought this swap was going to be mostly ignored... not end up in the top 10.

I was thinking about making this swap a round robin. Or a winner takes all. Or even a progressive swap, like you take my comment on how much this swap sucks, and then add some fun fur to it and pass it on to the next swapper. And so on.

Again, you are all ingrates. It took me MINUTES to create this swap... MINUTES that I'll never have back. you come here pick on my not-very-well-thought-out swap and leave me a broken Jaichan. Broken! You're all time thieves. I'm reporting you to the authorities. I'm not sure which authority yet, probably ALL OF THEM. Then you'll be sorry.

djmom11 10/ 4/2010 #

Gees are you ever going to assign partners? I just might have to drop from this swap!

user2637 10/ 4/2010 #

Fish out of water????

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

well, @jaichan I don't like fur. I prefer to have fur-less comments, thank you!! @pickleme ..yes! VOTE on fudge...blue fudge =D

LauraAust 10/ 4/2010 #

If my comments are smaller than a thumbnail do I have to send more than one to count as a full comments? What about torn, dirty, non-sticky comments? And comment-slapped comments? Are these allowed? I need to know before I join!! And what do I do if a comment left for me has someone's name crossed out? And someone else comment-lifted it and is trying to pass it off as his/her own original comment? I saw that this might be a private swap... what's the password? I can't join without a password!! And, I'd join if I could be assured of only receiving religious and political comments that align 100% with my own beliefs - I tried being open minded once, but too much crap fell in.

Jaichan 10/ 4/2010 #

I can't assign partners for another 6 1/2 hours, unless I backdate the swap to yesterday.

I promise I won't blink until I am able to assign partners!

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

Can we have fries with our comments?

FiWebster 10/ 4/2010 #

Well, I won't join this swap unless you assign partners in the next 26 minutes & 30 seconds, because I am a big high-patootie writer and I need fully 3 days & 6 hours to compose the deathless prose for my ratings.

FiWebster 10/ 4/2010 #

Methinks that if @Jaichan isn't going to blink for 6 1/2 hours, we should send our poor beleaguered hostess some eye drops. I mean, isn't the cold pretty dry up there in Canadian-land-o-rama?

Sparkle 10/ 4/2010 #

Did i mention I might be a bit late leaving comments? My goldfish ate my laptop so I'm having to post from an internet cafe 10miles away from where i live.

6 1/2 HOURS? seriously? SIX? s.i.x? well, that's it. I'm not commenting. You think I just have time to just sit around and wait that long? humpf some hostess you have turned out to be...I changed my mind. I'm not joining this swap...your swap sucks... blah, blah, blah....

FiWebster 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if I could be assured that @user2637 will receive only all-vegan, all-atheist partners.

In case she wants to eat them.

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

@sparkle ..see? that's why I don't have goldfish...they are so vicious and unpredictable!!

Ikat78 10/ 4/2010 #

Ok, here are my demands in order for me to join this swap:

Midwestkiwi has to be the host, Butterflydreams has to be my partner so I can get 1000 extras, Dreamerkins has to send me a photo of their purple hair and tell me how I can have purple hair, Jachan has to send me carrot cupcakes and the Evil Flying Monkeys must be able to participate otherwise that would be discrimination and that way nlgrudis cannot participate-or won't I should say:)

juliewasson 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if it werent on the top ten list. I hate popular swaps. I only like ones where you have to beg people to join. Sorry

Ikat78 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm with Juliewasson.......................nerdy swaps rule.

cherryarch 10/ 4/2010 #

Im a newbie, and while I would love to join this swap Im not sure I have enough ratings, and then I think i already may be signed up for too many swaps. and you know i might be super late because I have baby showers, weddings, school, and work to attend all the same day of the deadline. I know I am available the next day however. Oh wait.... my dog has to go to the vet that day, so maybe the day after that. I hate orange so no orange comments for me please, also no offensive comments, and please dont tell anyone I am a late commenter or they are sure to rate me a 3 and i really need some 5s to balance out the recent 30 or so 1's that i got last week when i didnt bother to complete m y 30 partner email swap. I dont know what i was thinking, allowing my niece to sign up on my account. I thought that she would just send the same email to everyone, but it turns out she didnt send anyone one. So now on my "other" profile I have good ratings, can i sign up with that one too? I think if you make me some fudge with coconut oil, and some herb i might participate in this swap, or better yet, just make me some happy hippie brownies. :) better yet pair me with someone from northern california, or amsterdam and tell them to send me the good stuff. Because obviously I need to smoke to even be able to sign up for this swap, much less be able to participate in it!

cherryarch 10/ 4/2010 #

see i even posted it twice, to show you all how important I am.... I really think its important to knkow that even if you go beyond what this swap is expected there is no way im giving you a heart because i save those for people with bad ratings, as i feel they need encouragement to inspire them to actually live up to their obligations (I read all about these type of swappers in the forums). Also this swap needs to be repeated monthly, and needs to be only local. I mean like each local area/state/country needs to have their own version of this swap to avoid offending or including outsiders. Otherwise there may be some miscommmunication involved, as well as some hurt feelings. Also My profiile list all my wants needs and desires, so feel free to send me something fabulous as well, especially if you want a raitng from me at all... because i have no clue how to rate people because im new, and maybe if you send me a 24"X24" box full of craft supplies that are new, expensive, and returnable for cash, then I will bother to figure out how to rate you all.

Also did I mention that this swap would be better if we could be paired up by locations? like we all need to send to the person arthest away from us, this would prevent anyone from lashing out or stalking anyones house.

Cherries 10/ 4/2010 #

How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

Cherries 10/ 4/2010 #

How will I get rated since I still haven't joined the swap? Where's that fudge @Jaichan ..I was counting on it for dessert tonight.

Also, I have rescinded my offer to @pahasiga of a private swap because I hate glittery graphics & she posted that very glittery purple comment above. (But I do like purple so maybe if she promises to never again post glittery graphics I will change my mind again.)

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

We have to send the host eye drops now? I'm dropping because I don't believe in eyes.

scrapkween 10/ 4/2010 #

I have a question. How will I know who to send my comments to?(giggles)I am going to start my own version of this swap, but only for those who love hot dogs...........or would someone like to do a private swap with me? I am not that good at posting comments, but would love a handmade comment.PM me if interested.I would join if it wasnt international, can i make a us only version?

TreehouseMom 10/ 4/2010 #

Since we won't have partners until tomorrow now, I only want to be part of this swap if everyone agrees to cancel all other plans they had because giving me my 5s with my fudge is most important! I am not sure about BLUE fudge though. That just seems abnormal, but maybe it's a Canadian thing? I am really worried about getting naked comments too since I have children in my home and my cat is already having a mental break down about the whole dead cat and box issue. Maybe this swap just isn't for me.

ctyankee 10/ 4/2010 #

I totally agree with @Cherries about the glittery comment. I think that was uncalled for. I specifically said no glitter, & @pahasiga goes & posts a glittery comment. What was that for anyway? If it was up to me, she wouldn't get a 5 because of the glitter. But if it was lime green rather than purple ... no, no, still no 5 because of the glitter. And was that a naked comment? It had so much glitter on it, I couldn't tell if it was naked or not. If it was naked, that would be rude. I signed up already, but I'm thinking that I'll need another week to go through the comments again, in order to properly eliminate all the used comments & the torn & disgusting ones, too. And the ones with glitter. Maybe I'll need 10 days extra to do all this, so if my comments (which will all be new & expensive) are late, it's because I'm still sifting through torn & ratty comments & those comments with the pre-paid sticky post office things on them, which I don't like because I only like real postage stamps. (ctyankee sits down & puts a cold compress on her forehead)

ctyankee 10/ 4/2010 #

And where's my fudge anyway?

TreehouseMom 10/ 4/2010 #

this swap would be better if written like a letter with sweet words that rhyme that show you took some time instead of just used up old words without fudge or unicorn herds

cherryarch 10/ 4/2010 #

O-M-G!!! I had no idea I had to leave several comments, I soooo dont have time for any of this. I thought this was a quick and easy swap, I feel like it was totally false advertised here on swap-bot. I cant believe it even got into the top ten swaps. I am totally freaking mad that this is so not quick or easy. getting accused of stealing comments, used recycled comments! drama! no thanks. I will be removing myself from this swap and then ten minutes before the sign up deadline i will be signing up again hoping that I wont get banned. Maybe next time you will make this easy and painless instaead of it being a painful process.....

Yikes! I soooo cannot do this swap now, my internet went down and I am leaving this comment using my babysitter's Blackberry and she needs it back in 15 minutes and I have fake farm critters that I need to feed on Facebook, and I have to twitter that I broke a nail, there are more important things in life than this swap you know! If I just forget to drop out before partners are assigned you will know what good reasons I have for not sending!

dreamerkins 10/ 4/2010 #

i think i better drop from this because, a) someone called @voodooninja 'she' but @voodooninja is the founder of the swap-bot men's group, and now i'm too confused to send a comment. i'm also not joining because somewhere in the middle of these comments there were 2 marcos in a row with no polos in between, and i think everybody was refusing to play with those kids... i won't stand for that kind of bullying... now, everybody give me your lunch money, or i'm leaving and taking your comments with me!

Jaichan 10/ 4/2010 #

All your comments belong to me. Even the comments that you've put on other swaps, threads, and profiles. Even comments that you've written on other websites belong to me.

Adventurer 10/ 4/2010 #

I really don't want to join this swap but I want more ratings, but only if they are hearts but definitely not recycled ones. Eeeeww you don't know where they have been. I also want the number of partners changed to the number who sign up so I will have tons of ratings (hearts) and if that happens I want the rating requirement to join lowered to a 1 so I can join in with my old flaker profile and bury my 42 1's under lots of hearts so no-one will notice them.U

DanaJeanWard 10/ 4/2010 #

@jaichan i mean seriously, who is going to join this stupid swap this late in the game? Just assign partners already! OH, and i just got my first THREE because someone just didn't really like what I sent them, and I am going to take it out on someone here. If your comment was not funny enough to make me laugh aloud while sitting alone sadly at my bleak computer screen, you will get a 3 because I am mean and do not want swap-bot to be fun for others. I would prefer to bring you down with me. (I SERIOUSLY just had someone do this to me by the way)

I can't be in a swap with @hollycm6 because she insists on calling me "she" when i am clearly a guy...now who's owed the public apology?

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

I can't be in this swap anymore because there is a ninja above me and I can't compete with ninjas. I'll end up getting a 1 for sure.

Gofeen 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if I was more creative and could come up with better comments but really I would join if my partner sent me a fluffy pink fairy with purple, yes purple, devil hoofs and tail. She must also cast a nasty spell on Jaichan because she has never sent me any fudge. Never even told me she can make it. Bah!!!!

HeideC 10/ 4/2010 #

Can I send extras to get a heart?

evenaed 10/ 4/2010 #

I have waited days to tell you... I will not join this swap because I am a newbie and I have heard from sources here that experienced hostesses will go through newbie profiles and since I have yet to send and be rated on 467 type three swaps with all fives AND hearts I am afraid that I will be banned.

ctyankee 10/ 4/2010 #

I'm still waiting for my fudge!

HeideC 10/ 4/2010 #

Since this is an international swap I want to be guaranteed an international partner. As the hostess, it's your job to assign one to me!

magicjessnrach 10/ 4/2010 #

This is codswallop! It is already past the swap date here in Australia and no partners??? I don't care that you are a day behind you should be considerate of ALL time zones!!!!!

Whiskey 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if people like magicjessnrach would realize that their country was NOT the center of the world! Everyone knows Belize is, and the sooner they get it into their heads the better!!!!!1111oneoneone

Emkay 10/ 4/2010 #

Since you did not bother to change the swap to German only comments, could you please tell all my partners, that I will running late for this swap. or I can´t join. I have to go to work and will not be able to post another comment in English. Maybe you can tell them, that I will send my husband to mail this swap for me. The problem is I do not have a husband at the moment, so it might take a while to convince my boyfriend, that he has to propose to me so he can mail this swap for me, because if he mails it for me and is not my husband by that time, than you will all out me as a liar, because I said, my husband would send it for me and I do not want to be called out in the PF´s for being a liar and maybe get a one on my perfect rating. So please tell my partners, that I will fulfill this swap eventually, but they have to wait a couple of years, because I need to get a divorce first for my boyfriend to propose, because it is not allowed in Germany to have two husbands. I am sure, they will all understand, that I do not want to be convicted as a bigamist. Thanks. BTW it is 2:35 a.m. on Oct 5th, when are you going to assign partners or shall I do that for you?

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

This is SO funny! hee hee. I would join this swap for sure if it were a send 3 items from the list to your partner... but be sure to check the partners profile and not send anything they do not like. why is this my fav swap to join? Because.... when my partners go to look at my profile... SURPRISE! Every item on the list of possibilities to send to me (from the swap requirements)... are on my Dislike list! oooo this will be fun. Then they'll have to stay up for a few sleepless nights deciding if they are going to risk sending me something on my dislike list (which happens to be all the possibilities for a fairly inexpensive swap) or if they are going to go shopping for me.

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

I would definitely join this swap if you made the requirement that we could all vent in the comments section... Oh wait! Someone just pm'd me and said that we could... oh... okay...

sebastian122 10/ 4/2010 #

Marco.

trashgirl 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if I was sent a personal invite...I mean what kind of person invites you to something with a zillion other people? How uncaring are you? If you really want me in this swap you would send me a personal invitation by snail mail in a box with all sorts of goodies to convince me that this swap does not suck and you are the greatest!

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

I want my partner to know that I do not want to receive any comments in the comments section of this swap. You'll have to figure something else out for me as I'm just up to my ears in comments, and cannot really use anymore. Thanx

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

I only join swaps that offer hours of ROFL entertainment... so far so good...but I'm just going to watch for now... :D

midsummermuse 10/ 4/2010 #

I think we all just outed ourselves as trolls...

I will NOT be joining this swap because e-swaps are for losers who don't like to actually swap. HA! Got you where it hurts didn't I? No? Let me keep trying.

trashgirl 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if MamaD hadn't stolen my plan for world domination. How rude!

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

For this ribbon swap: I seriously only want 24k gold filled ribbon please... I'm allergic to anything else... thank you for understanding... Oh! I'm also allergic to paper so I can't send my end of the swap in an envelope. You'll have to come and pick it up at my house if you want it. Kay? lol -

midsummermuse 10/ 4/2010 #

I think I'm also going to fulfill the requirement and leave three silly comments just to confuse anyone who made it through the entire comment thread here... I think I made it about halfway.

I only accept handmade knitted (or crocheted, I'm flexible!) dead cats using yarn that has been spun from your own hair (or your pets', I'm flexible! really!).

POLO!

Emkay 10/ 4/2010 #

Wait a minute @hollycm6 is in this swap????? Than I defenitely will not join this swap, because I do not want to be partnered with her ever again. I was in a private swap last christmas and she send me so yummie things, I had to eat them all right away and now I have suffered all year long about my weightgain. She could have been more thoughtful and send things which have been over the best before date, so I could have thrown it away instead of eating them. What if I am partnered with her and she sends me a comment which is still good and delicious and I will gain more weight? I only join, if @Jaichan promises to pay my WW fees, when I am partnered with @hollycm6

@drachenfrau - da sieht man es mal wieder, so einfach wird der Wunsch nach Kommentaren in Deutsch ignoriert. Das ist eine Diskriminierung unserer Sprache und sollte vor ein Gericht gebracht werden. Schließt Du Dich einer Sammelklage an? Ich denke so 5 Millionen Euro Schadenersatz pro Person wären hier schon angemessen, oder?

midsummermuse 10/ 4/2010 #

Seriously, I don't know why I am not joining this because it is brilliant. Perhaps it is TOO brilliant! I wouldn't like anyone to know that I actually had a sense of humor. This comment thread is too long. How am I supposed to scroll through the comments and just read my partner's comment? Please start indicating at the start of your comment whether or not it is funny and if I am your partner. Also, I just signed up--so where do I see my partners and why haven't you assigned them yet? I don't think joining this swap would enhance my reputation here on Swap-Bot and there is no 5 star perfect rating requirement!!!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT WHY ISN'T ANYONE LISTENING? I THINK THE HOSTESS SHOULD BE BANNED FROM THE INTERNETZ FOR HER LACK OF HOSTING TALENT!!!///???GDTERRWERS*&$%^#&%$^@$#%@!#[email protected]#$!$

Also... How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

I cannot join this swap because @cherryarch is taking all of the partners from Amsterdam... :( YOU are too funny!!!!!

Emkay 10/ 4/2010 #

It is 3:05 a.m and still no partners assigned. Sigh Hurry up, I have to go back to sleep, I have to work in five hours. Maybe I should not join this swap after all

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

Dude! I already joined this swap and now... there are changes to the swap requirements... I'm going to pretend that I didn't see them. I've already made my comments. ... (ex. the huge boldface type at the top of this, stating that we don't have to leave comments on our partners profile we can leave them here) what kind of deal IS THIS? I am not following up after I have already joined the swap!!!

OfficeWeed 10/ 4/2010 #

polo! Ha! Fudge? Brownies? Popcorn?

Jenna83 10/ 4/2010 #

This is so fabulous! You guys are all giving me great reading material for my afternoons. I just love swap bot! :)

Onyx 10/ 4/2010 #

WTF???? I am so &@&@#[email protected] angry right now!! There's some sort of giant %&@#(!! PF thread about this &%@@&# swap, and you guys are taking it way too &%%^@@# seriously and it is ##[email protected]&#^$(@(&#&& pissing me off!!! Also, apparently some uptight *&##^& think that there should be NO DRUNK COMMENTS????? WTF???? If I can't drink three ^^@%%## bottles of wine and six @####@ martinis before I do this swap, then I will be miserable, and I am sorry but you &$^%#@& are just not worth it.

midwestkiwi 10/ 4/2010 #

@trashgirl we could do a private swap for world domination?

layoutsfromtheheart 10/ 4/2010 #

Dear Lord... I apologize... this was very immature of me... and if I could erase my comments I could... :( I just really like my swap-bot account, an the nice people I meet here... please don't get any voodoo dolls of me or anything. I totally have enough pain already! Unless you want to give the doll some back massages throughout the day... that would be cool!

Peacewytch 10/ 4/2010 #

I don't like fudge. I like cake. Cananananada is America's hat.

moowee 10/ 4/2010 #

What is wrong with this stupid swap? I have not been rated by any of my partners yet. Ohhhhh - this makes me so mad.

camelsamba 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join if this were not a round robin swap, eh? Because the last round robin I was in, the other people never sent their hand-crocheted Latvian comments to me.

Eh? (that's Canadian :^)

Peacewytch 10/ 4/2010 #

Please put nice stamps on your comments!

RetroJane 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if you changed the sign up date, because I have 2000 swaps I am already signed up for, and I have to be able to make a run to Michael's to get more glitter before I can mail all of my packages.

allthisbeauty 10/ 4/2010 #

I better not get @RetroJane for a partner, because I only like glitter from Hobby Lobby, and definitely not Michael's.

ctyankee 10/ 4/2010 #

OMG! No glitter! PLEASE! I just know it will land on my cat. Or my black lab. Or my American Eskimo, who doesn't speak Canadian either. (ctyankee has left to go get a life before she has a nervous breakdown over the glitter)

Bramblebelle 10/ 4/2010 #

I would join this swap if there were more misspelled words and incorrectly used punctuation. As it there are not enough ,'s, and too few .'s. The host(ess) has used capitalization appropriately. Unacceptable. Perhaps in future the host(ess) would be a little more thoughtful about other people's sensibilities. You can watch for my rant on the PF. That's right, I am OUTING you all!! Unless I change my mind.

Jaichan 10/ 4/2010 #

Who will be the hundredth person to join this swap? Will there be one? The suspense is literally killing me.

No, not really. I had an instructor at school who incorrectly used 'literally' on a regular basis. I finally snapped when he told us the first time he saw 'Jurassic Park' he literally shit his pants. I blurted out, "Literally? You literally shit your pants? I'm glad I wasn't sitting next to you at the theatre!"

He stopped using 'literally' in every sentence after that.

midwestkiwi 10/ 4/2010 #

okay, maybe I will just figuratively join this swap

juliewasson 10/ 4/2010 #

I think that the rating requirement should be 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510... and if it were only for mathematicians who also like to cook. Speaking of which, anyone up for a private pie swap?

mejulia 10/ 4/2010 #

I only join swaps that have ten or few people. I don't like big swaps. The first 90 of you need to move to the watch list fast so I can have a good time with the swap. Thanks in advance. I will be sending my swap naked because that is what I like.

mejulia 10/ 4/2010 #

mejulia 10/ 4/2010 #

It posted twice so I will need extra partners and one more person will need to change to the watch list.

hollycm6 10/ 4/2010 #

I may have to drop out because of SOME people's ( @pahasiga !!) purple glittery comments. I can't stand glittery comments... purple, well that's fine... but glittery?? No way. That stuff just gets EVERYWHERE. And my computer is already slow enough without worrying about all that glitter-dust getting in its nooks and crannies. So- sorry! But if we are allowing glittery comments I am probably dropping.

midsummermuse 10/ 4/2010 #

Dammit I'll cave and make it 100.

:-P

Jenna83 10/ 4/2010 #

Oh my! @Jaichan your literally comment has me literally crying over here. My husband thinks I'm nuts! I would join this swap if I could be the most obnoxiously picky person and no one would do anything about it. That way, when my partner finds out they are stuck with me, they feel obligated to send me exactly what I want whether it meets swap requirements or not! Because I cannot simply go buy the exact things I want, I like it better when I can force a complete stranger to bend at my will and buy me things that I probably can't afford to buy myself. And don't you dare make it handmade, either! That really doesn't count, does it?

Jaichan 10/ 4/2010 #

Partners have been assigned! I've already rated mine. Now the rest of you, get the hell off my property. I'm going to bed. You'd better be gone when I wake up.

dreamerkins 10/ 4/2010 #

ok, i'm totally dropping this swap. it's only 11:45 pm est time, and by swapbot time that means partners shouldnt be assigned for another 15 minutes... and i just got an email saying i have partners already. what's up with that?? (no really, i'm curious...lol. how the heck did that happen? we narrowly missed 100 people).

Jaichan 10/ 4/2010 #

We had 100 when I hit 'assign'! Really! Then it was 99. Just like Gretzky!

djmom11 10/ 5/2010 #

@Jaichan thanks a lot now my eyes are buggy searching the comments to see if my partners did their job!!! YIKES!!!

Jaichan 10/ 5/2010 #

haha, djmom11, I know... I can barely see! I really have to go to bed.

allthisbeauty 10/ 5/2010 #

control-f is definitely required for searching for your partner ^^

geekgirl33 10/ 5/2010 #

OMG Can't you all just be grateful that god gave you the chance to be a part of swap bot. Jaichan had a wonderful beautiful idea even if it was full of flaws. I don't think any of you could do better if you think you can then you can invite to you swap and I will knock your socks off.

dreamerkins 10/ 5/2010 #

and possibly because rating was harder than fullfilling. i had to actually separate who said what...giggling histarically good thing i actually read them as they happened!

midwestkiwi 10/ 5/2010 #

I've commented, rated and sent. Thank goodness this swap didn't last any longer or my DH would have had me committed. Good night, good morning, happy swapping. Boo glitter!

midwestkiwi 10/ 5/2010 #

PS: use edit, find on this page to find your partners comments. Then put a pillow over your face so you don't wake the household laughing all over again!

geekgirl33 10/ 5/2010 #

In all seriousness this was a blast. I had to look at peoples profiles to see if anything the said was true...Not that I saw.

I have rated and commented and just about peed my pants readin these comments.

enjoy!

Peacewytch 10/ 5/2010 #

OMigods, I can't believe I actually learned something useful from this swap. Control F ROCKS!! @allthisbeauty I worship you from afar, with hearts.

Bamagirl2010 10/ 5/2010 #

I would join this swap if.... it wasn't so darn time-consuming! i mean really, whose idea was it to make us look for their name out of alllllll these comments? :D

Bamagirl2010 10/ 5/2010 #

Comment Buddy MySpace Comments

missxkay 10/ 5/2010 #

I agree with @Bamagirl2010 I would join this swap if @jaichan put the commenters in a comprehensive document so every commenter can easily be found. I'm a lazy ass. And my spare time is valuable.

Whiskey 10/ 5/2010 #

...is this where I catch the bus?

user2637 10/ 5/2010 #

@melusina - LOL!!!!!!!!!! nomnomnom

Brooklyne 10/ 5/2010 #

I would join this swap, I just don't get what I'm supposed to do. Am I supposed to comment on how poorly planned it is? Or do I gripe about the three days we have to figure out what we're supposed to do? I don't know. Oh man, and now we have to scan the whole page of comments for the three people in our list! This swap bites.

user2637 10/ 5/2010 #

I'm sorry, but I just can't possibly complete this swap. Why, you ask? Did you know that Swap-Bot only allows me to give the coordinator one star!!! Just one measly star!!!!!!!! That's just unacceptable to me as @Jaichan certainly deserves eleventy billion and two stars for this ridiculousness. So, you see, I simply can't participate in such a star-stingy exercise. Harumph.

Drachenfrau 10/ 5/2010 #

@Emkay

5 Millionen klingt sehr gut! :D

magicjessnrach 10/ 5/2010 #

Awesome swap which I am pleased to say was my 500th swapbot swap!!!

FiWebster 10/ 5/2010 #

Uhh...I'm confused...seriously, folks, I have a question: what are we supposed to do with the names & addresses & serial numbers of our "send to" partners? How exactly do we "send" to them? And what exactly do we "send"?

It's late. No, sorry, it's early. 3:48 AM on the right coast. Uhhhhh..... I'm for real flummoxed by this "send to" partners thing.

Hey! Have I mentioned my WAY cool/fun "get out the vote" swap lately? That just popped into my head. I don't know why. =singing= I don't why she swallowed the fly. Perhaps she'll die. I'm so sleeeeeepy. I'm outta here.

xxkarenlxx 10/ 5/2010 #

I am so totally going to flake on this swap...

weeatcrayons 10/ 5/2010 #

I will lick your cheek if you give me a heart. Or wait...is that supposed to go: I will hug you if you give me a heart. I still like the licking better!

SusanSpooky 10/ 5/2010 #

I just rated my partners and I can't wait until two weeks from now so I can change my rating from a 5 to a 3 or a 1, depending on how much of a bitch I feel like being! :D

SusanSpooky 10/ 5/2010 #

THEN I will delete my profile! Mwahahahahaha!

pahasiga 10/ 5/2010 #

What! You have already assigned the partners?? I won't be joining your swap now!

spinjenny 10/ 5/2010 #

I would join this swap if you hadn't unfairly assigned partners on the first day you could instead of extending the sign-up date as I asked ... oh, wait ... I didn't ask .. ... but I meant to ask ... and you should have known I was going to ask and extended it anyway!!!

MamaD 10/ 5/2010 #

I won't be able to fulfill this swap due to @trashgirl is trying to thwart my plans for World Domination and this is a truly serious emergency that has come up in my life. I know partners have been assigned, but really, what is more important? However, you still have to give me a "5", plus several hearts, and maybe even a nifty comment or two on my profile.

I probably can get my dog to fill in for me on this swap. If you can't read her typing, then that is YOUR problem, not mine. I still deserve excellent ratings!

lou 10/ 5/2010 #

I have THIS to say about: @weeatcrayons and about @melusina and about @phtbtmgrl -- These swappers are all truly magnificent! I not only received nothing but comments, but received nothing FAST -- and with this swap, you just can't do better than that! In addition to hearts for them and a star for the coordinator, I think it just may be time for a MOON -- yes, you read that right! Now it is time to quit reading this and go do something else that's equally productive.

LauraAust 10/ 5/2010 #

This swap fell short of 100 participants by one measly swapper! I only join swaps with 100+ swappers.... can I drop now, even though partners have been assigned? I don't know any reason why you would not let me drop - it's the only decent thing to do. If you don't let me drop now I will rate you a "1" - I don't know how I will accomplish that, but I'll figure out a way to do it! Mark my words!!

lou 10/ 5/2010 #

@LauraAust There are only 99 bottles of beer on the wall, you silly

Chaigna 10/ 5/2010 #

i would join this swap if it was snail mail! definetly, I so hard to get hearts in an electronic swap T-T and i want a swap where i can get 21 ATC yes 21, but with this i could even get 1 I'm a little sad because of that, but partners have already been assigned o0 what I'm going to do, i dont know what to send yet!! if only i could drop right know... such is life --

camelsamba 10/ 5/2010 #

Man, I just spent minutes looking for my "send to" partners' comments (notice proper use of apostrophe there) when I was supposed to be looking for my "received from" partners. Someone totally needs to rewrite this swap so it's more clear, otherwise I'm traveling back in time and not joining.

camelsamba 10/ 5/2010 #

or if you are enlightened and use a Mac, use command-F instead of control-F

OfficeWeed 10/ 5/2010 #

Did I miss the fudge already? I quit. I'm not rating anyone and I'm not accepting any rates from anyone, either. :)~

nlgrudis 10/ 5/2010 #

@jaichan = This swap is horrid! I refuse to join on the grounds that I could never give a 5 or heart to anyone ever because I will flake on them all. And where do I get the fudge??

@weeatcrayons = I am allergic to spit, so NO LICKING cheeks, thank you very much. You can however lick the cheek of the flying monkeys (they love that).

@camelsamba = I would like to travel back in time with you. I will pay for the Donkey ride tickets to get there if you pay for the Igloo we stay in on Mars.

@Ikat78 = The Evil Monkeys have stolen my identity. I will not be responsible for any/all comments made by me or anyone else. I will however tell you how to get to Sesame Street and become Mr. Roger’s neighbor.

OfficeWeed 10/ 5/2010 #

@allthisbeauty thanks...after I have taken my precious time LOOKING for the ones I am suppose to rate. :) Did I say I am NOT joining this swap? My mailbox is already full enough....

mizvicky 10/ 5/2010 #

Oh,another one,I would join and leave a comment,but I am afraid I wood mispail evarythang I wroat..

estrones 10/ 5/2010 #

Oh, oh, oh I've got three partners even though I didn't join the swap! They are @me @myself and @I True fact! And they all gave me a trillion zillion hearts each and dickety-three 5's as well. So there, neener neener.

estrones 10/ 5/2010 #

Errr, turns out @me really exists! Heh! Who knew?!

Bucket 10/ 5/2010 #

I'm very upset that the hostess did not send me a personal invitation to this swap and I've now missed it. Jaichan, will you be hosting a second version of this swap sometime within the next three days, because I'm unavailable after that.

Also, can you please create a group and host this swap in a group, because I've been flaked on so many times that I only do group swaps anymore.

dreamerkins 10/ 5/2010 #

i'm upset by this swap, because after leaving my comment before assigning my partners, i very nearly forgot to hit sent!lol

Whiskey 10/ 5/2010 #

I would join this swap if.... You did it again later. This has been the most fun I've had with a swap in ages!

Marco left he's tired of playing Polo and can't find any frogs to leap over - now Marci is here. Anyone know what Marci likes to play?

dreamerkins 10/ 5/2010 #

poli?

Jaichan 10/ 5/2010 #

I was thinking about eventually hosting a swap about why I can't rate for this swap. Hmm.

geekgirl33 10/ 5/2010 #

I concur with Whiskey!

Sparkle 10/ 5/2010 #

I just scrolled through the ENTIRE list of comments and read each one, and i don't think m,y partner has commented... now i will have to re-read to check! Could there not have been some better way to plan this rating malarky? @jaichan this is really badly thought through - if i could un-join i would, but now it's too late >:(

cherryarch 10/ 6/2010 #

@Whiskey you totally psychic-ly stole my freaking comment! theres no way im staying in this swap now!

mommaviv 10/ 6/2010 #

I would totally join this swap if reading all of comments made me smile more....right now I'm at a 4 out of 10.....c'mon people make me smile please.

Pyxidragon 10/ 6/2010 #

Much sadness...no comment from one of my partners. I'm so un-joining this swap cause you made me cry. :p

Pyxidragon 10/ 6/2010 #

Er...nevermind. Apparently my "Find" function is borked.

OfficeWeed 10/ 6/2010 #

Will Marci be leaping over any bunnies? candles perhaps?

kaydee 10/ 6/2010 #

What about APC’s and ATC’s? Is there going to be any TWINCHIES? Can I BCC so no one knows it is me or maybe I will BUMP this back to the beginning. What about DIY comments? I want to record this in my FB And now my comment needs to be OOAK??? Is this a WTA? My DH won’t allow me to ZENTANGLE Isn’t anyone going to PM me about the STUFFIES or DOTEES I want a RAK before I PIB, :) , ;), :(, :p and P:

MamaD 10/ 6/2010 #

OH my! I also forgot to hit "sent"! lol

Jaichan 10/ 6/2010 #

Mmm. I'll swap Twinkies! They're so awful, but once every 5 or 6 years, I crave one and an orange pop. Delicious!

tsireldi 10/ 6/2010 #

I will join this swap if you go back in time and change the sign up date for me. Otherwise it's really unfair.

Cinnabear 10/ 6/2010 #

I think Marci likes to hide in Glitter filled caves and eat twinkies . . . or was that eat Glitter and hide in twinkie filled caves?? Either way someone will have to go find her -

papercaper 10/ 6/2010 #

Oh, great. So living in Australia, where it's - crucially - Spring now, not Autumn (woan't someone ploise understehhhnd us?), means I miss out on this swap by three (3) days? Even though the disparity in time zones can't logically exceed 24 hours, and is typically closer to only half that? Nice. I knew you Northerners had it in for us!

Obviously I'm not going to join this swap now, and if you don't accede to @tsireldi s wishes, I never will either. :'( [Note to self: No crying. There's no crying in swap-bot!]

O, Canada! Thou forsook us. We thought you knew us, but you don't. You don't and you never will!

"AussieAussieAussie? WahWahWah!!!"

grimmlynn 10/ 6/2010 #

I would join this swap BUT it's international and I don't think my comments will translate well in a different language. Or accent for that matter. That sucks, too because I love everything else about this swap. Why don't you set one up that's not international?

Jaichan 10/ 7/2010 #

There's no crying in baseball! Hahahah! Papercaper, my coworkers and I say that at work at least twice a week.

ilove2smile 10/ 7/2010 #

This is the swap that never ends... Yes, it goes on and on, my friends... Some people started commenting not knowing what to say, and they'll continue commenting forever and a day. This is the swap that never ends...

cherryarch 10/ 8/2010 #

Where the heck are my brownies man??? I cant believe my partners would just forget about them.....

dreamerkins 10/ 8/2010 #

brownies? i thought it was fudge? now i need both!

LeSillyMe 10/ 8/2010 #

I am LOLing so hard right now!!!

Jeez, i would TOTALLY join this swap except its already over!!! BALLS!

midsummermuse 10/ 8/2010 #

Yeah this was was pretty epic, Jaichan! Sorry though, I'll get off your prop-er-tay! <3

camelsamba 10/ 8/2010 #

I would join this swap if people were required to rate! (because at least one person isn't holding up her/his end of the deal...)

Jaichan 10/12/2010 #

Thanks! I think the next swap will just be 'Let's Bash Jaichan Swap' I'm expecting roughly 26000 members.

Be sure to rate your partners! xo j

MissPaula 10/14/2010 #

Sorry this is late. The Post Office lost my comment. Just leave me a "1" without contracting me.

MissPaula 10/14/2010 #

Anyway, I didn't join because I knew you would rate me a "3" for misspelled words and the fact that you did not like my comments!!

Cinnabear 10/14/2010 #

Did anyone find Marci yet??

KarlaKC 10/17/2010 #

I would join this swap but my post office doesn't let me send anything unless it's in a box. Oh sorry...this isn't that Message in a Bottle swap, is it? Sorry about that!

KarlaKC 10/17/2010 #

I would join this swap... if I knew where to join! How can I get a 5 and a heart if I can't find the right button to click? I think the swap hostess should have done a better job in explaining this. She should be banned from coordinating anymore swaps.

KarlaKC 10/17/2010 #

Oh and do I have to leave a comment for EACH of my partners, or can I just do 2 out of 3. Well, that's a moot point now since I just left my 3rd comment in a row. I expect HEARTS for such attention to detail.

KarlaKC 10/17/2010 #

I would join this swap...but I'm TOO LATE! Again, probably the coordinator's fault. Why hasn't she been banned yet?!

yomousey 10/18/2010 #

Oh I would've joined but I was having connection problems. Honestly! And the dog ate my mouse so I couldn't click on the link, plus I had to dy my hair. All my gray was showing. I'm somad I missed it! sniff sniff

bruxbaby 10/18/2010 #

i would join this swap if you do it again. oh...and i also want fudge!!

LadyBayou 11/ 4/2010 #

I would totally join this swap if you did it again, but only if the hostess agrees to pay all medical bills related to split sides, rib damage, and inhalers.

jannieb 11/11/2010 #

I would have joined this swap too, but Jaichan didn't send me an invitation personally inviting me to join. I emailed Rachel & it looks like she is probably going to be suspended. If she didn't send you an invite either just PM Rachel & she will take care of it!!

dizzysgram 11/11/2010 #

I have to agree with @melusina I would join this swap if it didn't have such a long comment thread. I certainly don't have time to read all these comments about dark chocolate & quality fudge & glittery shorts & pink shoelaces & green hair dye & ATC binders & dead cats & virgin frogs & hair shirts & oxygen bottles & foggy mornings in Moncton & Latvian dollar stores & knitting needles & dried ice cream & dead cats & Reese's peanut butter cups & laser-measured Fabergé & Malaysian coins & dragon's blood & fairy wings & turquoise yarn & did I mention dead cats yet? & octopus paella & Swedish/SouthAfrican/Slovakian squirrel-haired, diamond-encrusted, homemade, handmade, handwritten, reused, recycled, repurposed, chocolate-chip crocheted comments!

Besides, I have no idea who the swap coordinator even is at this point! I've spent the last 53.6 minutes reading all these insane comments. We've taken up so much room on the server that we may be deported AND.............. my daughter is in this swap already and I don't want her to think I spend all my time on Swapbot. She had to talk me into joining in the first place!!!

BTW....How do I rate if I get a comment that looks like it was made by someone other than my partner? Is there a rule about swapping recycled comments?

Marci.........

dizzysgram 11/11/2010 #

Darn, I missed the swap date! Now I really can't join!!!!!!!! Lousy coordinator!

dreamerkins 11/19/2010 #

poli...

kgeslab 11/21/2010 #

I'd join this swap, but I think the minimum rating is just too low! I'm afraid I'd get flaked and i'd be out the 0 dollars I spent putting it all together nicely and then another 0 dollars for mailing it! (I must say, I had several LOL moments reading this - thanks so much for a bit of humor!) PS - I like fudge, but it must contain NO NUTS - severe nut allergy here, and no sugar, I'm diabetic, and no chocolate - it's bad for my skin, and no milk products because milking cows is cruel!

kgeslab 11/21/2010 #

Plus, I'm way past he due date!

DebR 11/29/2010 #

I would join but it appears I have missed the sign up date. I love fudge.

Jaichan 12/ 9/2010 #

Hahaha! All of you rock! I've got a little netbook and it wouldn't let me scroll down to see all the new posts on this thread.

I may just have to host another one...

In the meantime, GO AWAY!

lou 06/10/2011 #

Well, it's now a new decade! I would join this swap if I could take as long as I wanted to and nobody would mind, and if I could still get a 5 AND a heart. I mean, things DO come up and I have had so much drama that I can't always remember all that I have been through, but just know that I am deep like a river and if I needed to I could give you as many reasons as you could ever think of and then some for why I didn't get to this last year/las decade. Give me a break, it is still the same millennium
