Comment: I'm really very dissapointed with this swap Erika! Not only did you sent not your own swap, you didn't even sent the whole swap your partner sent to you (there's a shrine missing)! And on top of it, you didn't let your partner know, that you would send her swap to me. I see from your ratings that this is not the only time you did this. Please don't sign up for swaps, if you can't get them done. The only positive thing here is, you did add a note telling me, that this was not your work. But really! *sigh*
Comment: I am rating a three for this because you made one card but sent someone else's as a second card. I commend you that you did not try to pass it off as your own work, but this still was not in keeping not only with the letter of the swap but the spirit as well. From the swap "You will be making decorated mini book of shadows pages for this. Use sturdy card stock like paper and make the pages the size of a regular postcard (approx. 4x6 inches, but there can be slight flexibility)* I also sent you a message on sept. 11, 2010 "Before I rate you a 3 for not following swap guidelines I thought I would give you a chance to at the very least give your side of things, or to fix it if that is what you want to do. How we proceed is completely up to you" is part of the message. You read it and never replied in any way, so I can only assume you agree that a 3 is fair and you have no desire to fix the problem. Update 9-30-10 Since she is claiming I never sent here are the screen shots from my sent folder for her & the message itself. Screen Shots of sent folder & message I sent.
Response: You say that I read the message you sent, but I did not. I never received one from you. I do appreciate at least an attempt to contact me before rating, though. Who knows, maybe I accidentally deleted your message, but I never read it. As for everything else, please see below. Update: I am not claiming that she never sent, just saying I never read the messages.
Comment: I'm rating this a 3 as agreed with Morgaine because you sent cards made by other people instead of making cards yourself.
Response: I feel this is an unfair rating, not because she is wrong, the swap did say in a roundabout way that making them yourself is necessary, but because I feel Swap-bot is about being friendly and understanding with each other, and I feel the reason for rating down did not affect my partner in any way. I was very busy and found I was not going to be able to make my cards, so I sent the ones I received. I honestly didn't feel it would be an issue so I unfortunately neglected to tell her this in my note. She received exactly what every other participant received in this swap...2 cards, handmade. sent on time. I personally would never rate down for this. I would have rated a 5 with no heart and mentioned the issue in the comment (if I would have even noticed in the 1st place!). We on swap-bot work hard for our ratings and are only human.
Comment: I really liked my swap and the extra goodies. Thank you. The only bad thing was that it came to me all smashed up. I felt so bad because I could see you had taken time on it. You might want to bubble wrap or box next time.
Comment: I was under the impression it was at least 60 lists, not only 60 pages, so I was thrown a bit by yours having only 56 lists. But you had a wonderful variety and the description doesn't clarify. Thanks!
