One of my favorite colors is Tardis Blue (if your not sure what I am refering too is has to do with Doctor Who (and you can also look it up)

I have 5 pets. Three dogs and 2 cats. My 1st dog is a girl and shes a begale terrier mix, my second dog is a boy and hes a long haired dapple doxie!!!! My third dog is a girl and shes a long haired liver colored doxie!!! My cat is named Coraline but we call her Cora or Corabelle (because she is so pretty)! She is a pacth tabby and shes almost a year old now. We also have Pepper who is some kind of tabby! So I am always looking for pet stuff!

Im also an Avon Lady. So if you need anything let me know.

I like Grumpy Cat as well!!

DISLIKES!!!

ATCS (unless they are somehow related to my likes, like Doctor Who, history, etc)

ZINES (unless they are something related to my likes)

Swaps

Note on the 3s: Yes I have many threes and I have tried to fix them but some people dont want resends or if I resend wont change their ratings. I try to work with them, I can not help this. It just makes me so frustrated because I get comments and banned from swaps when there are people with worst ratings on here that are aloud to participate in swaps.

Update on most recent 3: I offered to resend as you can see from my responce to this person rating but as you can see from her comment on my profile she does not want a resend. I would be more then happy to resend but my resend would not be welcome and my rate would most likely not be changed if I did resend. I also understand its your swap so people have the right to ban me if they want. They say they have to be fair to the other swappers but what about being fair to me? (Im not tring to sound selfish here Im just making a point)

Why cant people communicate with me their feelings or concerns and let me give my side of the story instead of this is what I see or what others have said to me about you so Im banning you thats really not fair to me, I feel. I also not trying to call anyone out or make anyone mad at me but I just need to relay my frustrations and I would do it on the boards but I have had mean comments made their to me by other swappers so I have to make this very long post (and Im so sorry its long I shouldnt have to be posting things like this at all but this is whats happenig to me on here and I am not getting any help or support even though I have asked for it)

Note on my 1: I sent this swap (international) 3 times to my partner. She claims she never got it all 3 times except she did say she got the envie with the note but nothing in it. Tried to contact her to send it again and never heard back. The user is partially suspended now and has 13 ones but is still in swaps? I hate to point out things like this and am not trying to cause drama but just pointing this out so people can understand my frustrations.

I would be happy to resend (if your resend request is resonable (one time for a swap I got a 3 on I offered to resend but then she started trying to bully me into buying her a very expensive gift as well and the cordinator agreed and did the same thing, yet her swap had no dollar value on it so long story short I decided not to resend but thats the only time I ever did)

For swaps please rate fairly! Please dont give me a bad rating just because you dont like what you got. I had that happen several times and I dont think its fair.

I am more then willing to working with people and negotiating

I always follow swap guidlines and get things there by the due date. And I pledge to always rate fairly.

Im sorry I had to put this up because it may seem harsh. However I feel like I had to with a couple recent ratings that I have recieved.

Also please dont be rude to me on my profile, in emails or on the forums posts. Tag games and things like that are meant to be fun please dont spoil the fun by telling someone they shouldnt be here or by telling everyone they have bad ratings. If you are rude to me I will block you!

Also I hate to sound rude and mean on here but please dont go gossiping about people to a group admin or a cordinator of a swap behind someones back. (This has happened to me) if there is a problem please let me know DONT give me a 1 or 3 and then let me know because that is very rude.

Also international swaps take a long time to get there from where I live so if you dont receive it within a week and your international please dont give me a 1 it makes you look like a jerk because sending though the regular mail takes longer, and I hate to say this but maybe if you cant be patient in waiting for mail you should really consider if swapbot the right place for you.

I came to swapbot because I like sending and receiving mail and sharing ideas and because it sounded like a good idea and very fun. So it makes me upset to know that there are people on here that can be very rude and mean and almost bully other swappers like me, just because I dont met your standards doesnt mean you should treat me like dirt and give me bad ratings or ban me from swaps and make rude comments about why I have been banned.

Also please dont bully me and pressure me into sending you very expensive items because that is very greedy of you and you should be ashamed of yourself if you do this to somebody!

Now I know there are people on here who dont treat people like this and I want to thank all of you!

I just hate having to say things like this on my profile page. Im NOT trying to cause drama. Ive learned some people can be very judgemental on here so im just trying to make a point dont judge based on what others say or what you see because you do not know the whole story!

Also if there is a problem with a swap and I am contacted by my partner I might let the cordinator of the swap know as well so if the problem persists he/she wont be blindsided and then angry like why didnt you come to me sooner that kind of thing.

If there is a problem I also like getting advice form the cordinator because some of them have been around swapbot for a while and I respect their opinions.

Also if things really excalate and I feel the need to go to the swapbot admin I wil contact the admin as well (only had to do this twice on swapbot).

Also Ive been accused of being defensive on here sometimes. I dont feel I am but It might look that way because I am telling my side of the story and I think I should have a right to explain my side I cant beleive there are people on here who dont agree (but I have met them)

I dont understand why people think its ok to bully others on here! IT NOT OK ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME!

PLEASE ALSO DO NOT TELL ME HOW TO RUN MY SWAPS! IF YOU DONT LIKE THE TIME FRAME PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY DONT DEMAND ME TO CHANGE IT.

ALSO PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME TO SEND 1ST THAT IS NOT HOW SWAPBOT WORKS YOU BOTH SEND AT THE SAME TIME WHEN YOU GET YOUR PARTNERS ADDRESS!

IF YOU DONT LIKE MY SWAPS DONT BE RUDE OR BULLY ME ABOUT THEM. START YOUR OWN. IF YOU ALSO DO NOT LIKE MY SWAP DONT CLICK ON IT.

Sorry to be like this but Ive had problems with people insulting the swaps Ive planned or trying to tell me how to run them. Im ok with suggestions but some people are just being rude to me about it.

ALSO ONE THING I NEED TO POINT OUT I GOT BANNED FROM A GROUP FOR GIVING 5s BUT NO HEARTS!

HEARTS ARE OPTIONAL.
