Ever get the feeling that newbies are grossly overlooked? I kinda felt that way when i first joined. But after 3 years, all that has changed. So let me help you get your ratings up and I'd like to personally welcome you to Swap-bot and Congratulate the "oldies" who are still around by sharing our gifts and well wishes in the "Newbies Are Welcome Here!" Swap. :)

Here's how to play: You will have 2 partners. You will send each partner any "one" thing from this list...

  1. a new pencil

  2. a new pen

  3. a new flat Christmas tree ornament

  4. a new postcard from your state or country (unwritten on for a souvenir)

  5. a new craft made by you

PLEASE INCLUDE a letter (can be one page/one side or longer) introducing yourself to your partner if you are a newbie and tell your partner how you found Swap-bot and what you love about it.

If you are an oldie then your letter should introduce yourself and share what it was like to be a newbie and why you STILL love Swap-bot.

The Fine Print: Internationals, Newbies and Oldies are Welcome. Since this is open to everyone...PLEASE dont flake. I realize some need to get their ratings up too, so please be considerate and only sign up if you can meet the requirements, deadline and international postage (which shouldn't be much).

Send expediently, Rate immediately and Swap happily!

Good idea for a swap! I'd really love a pen if possible, but no worries :)

Ok...here is a stupid question, but i dont really understand, it might be my poor english so here it goes: with any "one"- are we supposed to send 5 items or only one or am i free to send more if i like?

/Nina, totally new here :)

natisha, I believe you send one from the list, but of course, as with all swaps on swap-bot, you can send more :)

I really like this swap idea ... especially because of the letter that has to be with it! A little bit scared about everyone can join... I really hope this doesnt attract flakers. But I do take the risk because I love this swap!

Thanks everyone for joining! To answer your questions...

  1. natisha...you send one item of your choice to your 1 partner but you can always send more if you like!

  2. malayuze...you're right it is a little scary to open to all but I WILL ANGEL.

PLEASE don't forget your letters! :)
