Super-simple - one partner, one store-bought postcard of your choice! Easy peasy, right?

Feel free to take a peek at your partner's profile and send something you think they might like - this is NOT required, however.

No handmade or ad cards, please - store-bought only. Cards are to be sent naked ( which means written on, stamped and NOT in an envelope), with a little note hand-written to your partner on the back. (If you are physically unable to hand-write, then I of course understand!) And I can't believe I have to add this next point, but please DO NOT use my postcard swaps as a means to advertise your store. It's completely different from including a business card in a package swap, in my opinion.

Please remember to include the swap name and your username on the postcard, so your partner knows who to thank and rate!

I will be checking profiles before partners are assigned. Newbies with a well-filled out profile are welcome - everyone starts somewhere!

If you flake on one of my swaps (and you won't, right?), I will eat you. Okay, not really - first, I'm a vegan, and second, if you are what you eat, the last thing I want to be is a flaker! Seriously though, I will name and shame and you will never be allowed in my (or many other people's, I'm sure) swaps again.

Please don't forget to rate your partner!

Any questions, please ask! :)

Please, what is a store-bought postcard???

A postcard you have not made yourself, one you bought in a shop!

Thank you, @dustandthings :)

I just received my first swap item in the mail. Do I rate the person. That sent me the gift. Yes its a newbie question but I can't figure out how to Go It as my net service is only on my phone. Thanks. Sizemore714

@Sizemore714 - Not sure why you posted here, but here goes - Go to the swap page of whatever swap you're wanting to rate for. Along the right, there should be the option to 'Rate your partners and coordinator' or something along those lines. Select that, then rate away! No idea how different it would be on a phone, as I hate cell phones and thus don't have one. :P Hope this helps!

Hi! I think I joined your swap. Newbie here. Hope my profile is complete enough. Thanks!

Marryth 01/15/2011 #

Works for me, @Winkie - welcome to swap-bot! If you need any help, please just ask. ;)

MrsTinyDuckie 01/20/2011 #

Hi! I joined your swap - it's my first. I hope my profile is okay. If you have any suggestions for it, let me know. Thanks for allowing newbies. :)

Marryth 01/20/2011 #

Your profile looks good to me! :)

Everyone is new at some point, so I have no problem with newbies - need to get your feet wet somewhere. (So long as I don't get burned, that is...then I won't allow 'em anymore. Here's to hoping no one ruins it for the rest!)

Dairenn 01/20/2011 #

Thank you for letting newbies join this swap. Hope my profile is filed out enough for this too.

How long does the message on it have to be?

Marryth 01/20/2011 #

I generally fill up the whole part you can write on (the whole left side), but it's up to you! Write about how you feel, the weather, a nice quote, your wishes for your partner or the new year, something about their profile - anything happy! It's great to get happy mail - sure beats bills, right? ;)

JadeCurley 01/20/2011 #

Massive apologies if I'm being a massive thicky, but how do you attain a sendee? I am small in this swapping world! xx

JadeCurley 01/20/2011 #

Oh, okay! If I read my email then I would've known this. You get assigned a partner. Noted! Agreed! Sowee! xx

Marryth 01/20/2011 #

No problem. ;) I will be able to assign partners in the morning (I'm in eastern time, for the record.) ~12 hours from now, kid-cooperation dependent, I'll have them assigned, haha. :P

JadeCurley 01/21/2011 #

Woooo! xx

Linda52156 01/21/2011 #

Ok,This is probably a dumb question. But I just got a email saying my swap partner was assigned. Now how do I find out who it is.

JeJune 01/21/2011 #

Hi newbies! :) At the top right of this page there's a yellow box, and one of the options is "See the partners you send to." Clicking on this will open a new window with the name and address of your swap partner.

Linda52156 01/21/2011 #

Ok, I admit it it. The light bulb just went off and I found who my partner is. What can I say...LOL

Marryth 01/21/2011 #

Thank you, @JeJune :)

Happy swapping, everyone!
