Yeay! I love reading people's profiles so should be fun! I have been flaked on with 1 partner swaps a few times... not nice, so hope the lovely people who sign up take the commitment seriously!

(1)Do the ATC's have to be made with info gathered soley from our partner's profile?

(2)Can we Swap-Bot and prvt msg our partner and ask them questions to get more informatio to use as a basis for making their ATC's?

(3)If when we get our partner's info it includes a blog address, I have gotten such info before in swaps so it does happen sometime, can we cruise the blog to gather intell for the ATC's as well?

Silly questions, but if I tought of them I know someone else has and just didn't ask.

Okay, I admit, I'm totally clueless. I've never heard of "ATC" before joining this site. I've figured out that it means "artist trading cards" and that they are handmade. Can somebody please give me an idea of what they are, what they look like, what size they are, how they are made, etc., etc., etc.... Thanks!

Caffinna 12/ 2/2007 #


In a sense they are 2.5" by 3.5" artworks. They can be painted or constructed in any number of ways. The simpliest form, and JMHO therefore the easiest to start with, is a basic mini scrapbook page type. You can use stickers, glitter, pictures, crayons, markers, and any number of things. If you have a flicker account use "swap-bot" and/or "swap-bot atc" as search terms for pictures, and it'll bring up pictures of atc's for you to view.

Caffinna - Thanks for the information!

Hi all, I was going to join but noticed that the coordinator of this swap -doesnt have a completed profile -is behind on swaps -has 2 no-sends does that mean she will ban herself?????

CaSaundraLeigh 12/ 7/2007 #

I'm totally new to ATC's!! But I am soo excited to put my all into them. I think I see an addiction coming on :-)

mammi53 12/ 9/2007 #

Should be fun. Count me in!

This swap starts tomorrow and I'm a little concerned. After reading the comment above, I popped over to justbreathe's place. It does appear that something has gone wrong. It's not that she doesn't have a complete profile -- there's nothing there.

I'm kinda new around here so I don't know what to do. I love the idea for this swap, but I still take a lot of time to make ATCs and I'd really like to be confident in the swap before I commit to making 4.

What is the protocol for this kind of thing? If I don't hear from somebody, I think I'll drop before the deadline :(


renaemarie 12/10/2007 #

PS: ladymarmalade doesn't appear to have any info either -- is there something wrong with the system?

Maddy 12/11/2007 #

I had a look at both: justbreathe (the host for this swap) has been in 61 swaps yet no details in profile at all, and 2 no-sends ladymarmalade seems to be a new member, no swaps done or signed up for yet?

weyrmistress 12/11/2007 #

I just checked justbreathe's profile and there are several comments relating to her apparent depression. . .her blue and white swap had issues with partner assignments and she has not been online, at least here, since the 4th. I'm probably going to drop this. . .sigh. Such a sad situation.

crweixelman 12/11/2007 #

Ok, I just wrote Rachel and asked if I could take over hosting if justbreathe could not be contacted. She's said on the forums before that that can be done, so here's hoping.

Maddy 12/12/2007 #

That would be great if you can take over, crweixelman... theis swap is a great idea, and 61 people have their names down!

gatorsmom 12/12/2007 #

Has the coordinator been changed yet? I see the "drop swap" option is gone - but I don't see that partners have been assigned either. Any thoughts?

Sexiibradley08 12/12/2007 #

I was so excited for this swap too! I hope justbreathe ccomes back, or that the swap is transfered.

CraftyDez 12/12/2007 #

I wonder what happened to her profile. She used to have one filled out. Her 1 ratings are fairly recent. Oh man, I hope she's ok. I may hop over to the forums and check to see if I can find any info on her.

marquettegirl 12/13/2007 #

this is a bummer, all the way around.

racheljohnson 12/13/2007 #

Hi all,

We will switch hosting duties to crweixelman today. She will then have the ability to drop any questionable swappers and get partners assigned.

YEAH!I was so looking forward to this!Thanks Rachel!Sue

Stmpnmnga 12/13/2007 #

Am glad this situation is being remedied. Was wondering why we didn't have partners assigned yet. Will they send us an email or do we just check back here? Thanks for stepping in.

Stmpnmnga 12/13/2007 #

Also, are there guidelines on kind of media or is that open? Is digital ok for part of it? Thanx.

crweixelman 12/13/2007 #

Yes, you'll get an email when partners are assigned. And I think any media you want to use should be fine :) Thanks for posting this Rachel!

jmlnanners 01/ 6/2008 #

Haven't received my ATC's yet. Haven't rated, because according to her profile there has been some problems with her mail. Left her a comment on her profile page, but have no response as of yet. So, I will wait.

jmlnanners 01/ 6/2008 #

JoannaTHSAL, I am so sorry about the above post. I had you confused with some one else, please forgive me. jmlnanners

dephal 01/ 8/2008 #
