For this swap you will have five (5) partners. You will read each partners' profile and write them a nice comment based on what you see.

Doesn't have to be an essay, but not just 2 words either.

Please don't flake, this one isn't exactly hard, but is open to everyone.

Have fun, play nice.

Are you meaning we leave the comment on their profile page?

runnerbean84 12/27/2010 #

Yup! x

I love these swaps!

What a nice idea! A good way for newbies to get comments on their profiles. :)

Will you tell us who are 5 partners are or do we just pick any 5 who have joined?

runnerbean84 12/31/2010 #

Hullo, I really hope you dont mind, but I've extended the date by a week. x

This seems pretty cool!

kittenred 01/ 1/2011 #

do we pick 5 or do you pick the 5 for us?

angelstar 01/ 1/2011 #

The five get picked by Swap-bot. The partners will be chosen whenever the coordinator clicks on "Assign Partners" as soon after the swap as she can.

Cool idea. I know everyone likes to get feedback, especially if it's personal!

i'm new at this and even have trouble getting into my own profile, how do i get into someone elses.

elvenranger 01/ 3/2011 #

prob wont have time with new extension date clashing with Uni and work. :( sorry.

I'm very much newbie....could someone please tell me how I can find & fill out profile preferences?

coffeegirl18 01/ 4/2011 #

At the top of the page there should be : Dashboard, Relationships, Messages then PROFILE.

Click on Profile and the click on EDIT PROFILE on the dropdown menu.

Then you'll see another menu: Basic, Address, and PERSONAL. Click on Personal.

Scroll down to where it has the heading ABOUT ME. If you click on it, it's another dropdown menu. I suggest you write a little something about who you are (i.e. student, live in the mountains/farm country/etc.).

Then add on a box by clicking ADD ANOTHER then go to the drop down menu on the new box and select the 'box type' i.e. About Me, Favorite/Music/Movies/etc. You can also do a custom box with your own title. So under favorites list your fave crafts/things i.e. sewing, postcards, kittens.

Then MAKE SURE TO CLICK SAVE CHANGES at the bottom. I didn't the first time and freaked out.

Hope that helps all the newbies :D I'm pretty new myself...feel free to PM me if you need any more help.

I just signed up today and coffeegirl18, your profile example is extremely helpful. I look forward to doing this. I stumbled into swap-bot from another craft website. I am the only crafter at my work and it gets lonely. Thank you for helping newbies.

before i join do i have to send stuf

AndreaJ 01/ 7/2011 #

Jodie, in this swap, you won't need to mail anything. The only requirement is to make a comment on your partner's profile page. It's just another neat way that Swap-bot allows people to keep in touch. To do that: Go to someone's profile page (by clicking on their name on any swap-bot page). Look on the right side of the page, where you'll see headings for Currently In, Currently Hosting, Groups, then Comments. If they already have comments, you need to scroll to the bottom to find the Leave a Comment square.

Another thing I like to do is check out some of the swaps and groups people are in, by using those links on the right side of the profile page. I've discovered some interesting swaps that way.

Thank you runnerbean for hosting this swap. I really enjoyed "meeting" other swappers through their profiles. Great idea.

momma2three 01/ 9/2011 #

I just want to say this was an AWESOME first swap for me!!! It was so fun reading other profiles and learning about people and everyone's likes/dislikes! Also gave me some ideas of things to add to my own profile! Thanks @runnerbean84 for hosting and allowing newbies like myself to participate!

ribbitribbit26 01/10/2011 #

i was about to say i second what the gal above me said...until i realized it was you, hunny!! (we are listia buddies) ((huggers)) small small world. this was also my first swap and i felt the same way. hoping to find some neat/fun/non expensive ones to join now!!

To host: Thank you for hosting!

QUESTION: Do we leave feedback for this? I got one comment today but cannot find a place to leave it so I am unsure if we are supposed to?

kayler00 01/10/2011 #

Great idea for a swap! We should do this again soon.

& @ribbitribbit26 - We do leave feedback, if you go up to the right hand side & Rate your partners you can leave feedback for the people who left comments on your post. & the people you left comments to, can leave you feedback. =)

princesspudge 01/12/2011 #

Sorry it took so long to leave feedback, it took forever for me to find how even though it was staring me in the face! blush

dragonfly84 01/13/2011 #
