Is there a Price Tag minimum on this swap? Since lipstick can range from $1 on up....

petulka 04/24/2011 #

It can be lip balm? I love lip balm and I want to receive it.

Allyb 04/24/2011 #

@Nandin there is no $ tag on it as it was just a fun little swap so you just have to make sure it is new and useable ..... I wouldn't send some thing that was yuck for me to use so be nice and i think it should go well. I wanted to really just keep the price down for people as i know we all have it hard.

@petulka if you want lip balm i would put it up like you have but if they don't read it please don't be upset as if they send lipstick they have done what is required of them as a swap.

What about coloured lip gloss?

Allyb 04/25/2011 #

@mimi07 you can ask for it in here but if some one doesn't read it and sends you lipstick then please don't be unhappy because it is a lipstick swap. But you never know how lucky you could be.

What about colours? What if someone sends me blue lipstick? Or bright orange? Then i have no use for it what so ever, it would be such a waste TT^TT

Vanillacreamteas 05/ 3/2011 #

Also 2 lipsticks each? so in total 4?

Allyb 05/ 8/2011 #

@Ichigoshortcake yes it is all up 4 lipsticks that you will need to send.

To the other comment i am sure some one will not send anything that they wouldn't wear them selfs. But i didn't put on there that you can't so it is a take your chances.

FYI - you have a flaker in your midst - @tazwoman flaked on my children in a coloring page swap last year (and someone else's child in another swap) and never sent, responded, or apologized since she has returned to the bot.

Allyb 05/14/2011 #

@cajunhillbilly i don't like what you are doing. you are not in this swap nor in any of my swap and you think it is ok to bad mouth others please go away and deal with it in a better mannor. I will message this to you via a private message as well.

PinkLotus 05/15/2011 #

I stated the facts as they are - I didn't "bad mouth" anyone.. everything I said is fact.. and up until recently she was partially suspended - until after 6 months those dropped off.. and she came back here swapping again... pretending like she didn't disappoint several children. Shame on her for doing it - and shame on YOU for supporting her bad behavior.

richara 05/15/2011 #

We need the warnings about flakers or how else are we to protect ourselves from people who come here to thieve from others.

Allyb 05/15/2011 #

Hey you listen here i have not suported any thing at all....get your facts right for a start as for you coming on my swap and saying things when you are not even in the swap. For one i am not getting involved with people who are bad swappers and two i am the coordinator for this swap and i will do what i think is right. I don't need people telling me what to do. Go away and deal with your issuse else where. Sorry for your swaps not going right and i am sorry that your children didn't get their swaps but i have no control over that i was not the swap co ordinator and i can't help you. Please no more that is all i am asking of you. No more crap please i have come on here to make some nice penpal friends and swappers that's it for me. But there are always one or two bad eggs which seems to be the case here as well.

PinkLotus 05/15/2011 #

fyi - you are supporting bad swapping behavior when you allow someone in your swaps that you KNOW has flaked on others - including CHILDREN -, who has not made attempt #1 to rectify that, and you let them in your swap anyway.. you aren't the only one swapping here - there are other swappers potentially affected by your decision to trust someone that has proven to be untrustworthy.. THEY have the right to know and make a conscious choice to swap with them or not.. and if they are not seasoned enough to know where to check the partners - this is the next best thing.. posting comments so your swappers have the chance to make that decision for themselves - not for you to make it for them. YOu can have anyone you want in your swaps - but you will gain a reputation for yourself of irresponsible hosting and good swappers will want not part of it.. Ive done what I came to do - which is give the participants a chance to make their own choices..

crochetjunkie 05/16/2011 #

As the swap coordinator, do you know you can delete comments left on your swaps? Just an FYI.

Flakers suck.

RachelB 05/16/2011 #

I was going to join this one and it does say no flakers on the description but there is at least one flaker in here and the co-ordinator doesnt mention she will angel so I think I will steer clear of this one

Amigirl 05/16/2011 #

This is a PUBLIC swap, dear AllyB. And you seem like such a sweet and gentle lady, and very forgiving, too. But you must remember that when you host public swaps, as opposed to group or private swaps, anybody will comment on them. That's part of having a public swap, so you may have to just kind of get used to that. Or, if you want to choose who can see your swaps, make a little group for yourself where you can swap in private and people can get to know how you do things. Here in the public venue, the only recourse we have against flakers is to let each other know so that there is pressure on them to either leave, or make good on their swaps.
I occasionally do host public swaps, and I do not allow people who have been flaking in them. They'd have to make up the flakes and then act right for a while before I'd let them be considered to join. I once did have a very nice lady who had flaked and returned ask to join. I felt like she was sincere, but I still have to protect my swappers and my rep as a swap host, so I offered to do the very same swap with her privately. That way, she can participate, she gets a chance for a new good swap rating, and I still protect my swap. I'm only exposing myself to risk, which is my prerogative. And guess what? She flaked on me! For an ATC! So there are people who sound very sincere, fool even me (a person who detects lies for a living) and flake again! I urge you to protect your swaps and your rep by just offering Taz the swap privately and removing her from your swap. It isn't good practice to let her in for another chance for new swaps until she makes good on her old ones. It's not kind to the people she owes to. Cajun is just looking out for everyone. It's what we do, and it isn't personal, dear.

Thank you Amigirl thats nice of you to say. I have really had it here and was thinking of closing my account. I don't think you all realise i am in tears when i come on my swap and see all this writing. I just don't need all this hassel and I don't need to be a mum that crys in front of her children because adults can't act right. I understand what everyone is saying and i have allowed her in this swap but be sure she is the last one. I do try and be fair and i am an honest woman be sure of that. I hate when things go wrong. As for Tazwoman she has not said a thing to back her self up so i will be sending her partners a gift just in case she doesn't. So I will do the right thing by everyone. Please just stop it all I am in tears and I don't think I will be coming back anymore.

HeavenlyDreams 05/16/2011 #

Okay enough is enough this swap has now finished. @ Allyb, maybe to stop all this sort of thing, is to not have her in any swap she wants to join next time. At least now you know all about her. One will see what she is like this time, and then will know. To make some one cry is not good. Hang in their Allyb, things can only get better for you.
