Bird's Eye City Views for Everyone!
Swap Coordinator:craftgasm (contact)
Swap categories: Letters & Writing  Postcards 
Number of people in swap:10
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Rating requirement:4.00 (unrated swappers allowed)
Last day to signup/drop:October 18, 2010
Date items must be sent by:October 25, 2010
Number of swap partners:10

For this swap, we will send one naked, written-on, stamped postcard to each of our 10 partners. The postcard should have a picture of your city, town, or area (or a city, town, or area you've recently visited, or want to visit) taken from an aerial perspective to show a large area. If fewer than 10 people sign up, we'll just swap with everyone else in the group. :)

Another important component of this swap is the note on the back. Please write a real note to your partner -- at least one or two full sentences. Getting those cards that just say "Such and such swap, from username" can be such a disappointment. If you're stuck on what to write, an easy topic would be your favorite activity, shop, or restaurant in the pictured location. Or tell us how long you've lived there, or about the time you last visited. Give us a local's perspective!

This swap is open to swappers with at least a 4.0 rating, along with no recent 1s or 3s. I reserve the right to ban anyone questionable to make it a fun experience for everyone.

I look forward to swapping with everyone!

Is 4.0 a typo?

mamajoy 10/ 9/2010 #

error, that is.

craftgasm 10/12/2010 #

@mamjoy 4.0 isn't a typo or error. I'm allowing for there to be 3's or unfair 1's on people's profiles, as I and many other good swappers that I know have in our ratings. Since this is a low-value swap, I can also angel if necessary.

I am watching until I can clarify the requirements for this swap. I am not sure I have any postcards that are aerial views except for Ship Island in MS. I will keep looking and if I find the required card in MS or TN before the sign-up deadline I will join.

Good luck, @msdelisle -- we'd love to have you! :)

craftgasm 10/20/2010 #

Exactly ten of us -- who would have thought? :) See you all in the post!

I only have 9 partners on my list; is this correct?

chthonicboom 10/25/2010 #

Oops, I forgot that I'm the 10th participant. Heh! All cards will be mailed later today!

Our internet was down last night and I couldn't get online to click sent until now! I promise I didn't flake on my own swap, though. ;)
