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 3 from Christmas Exchange: She gave me a 5 and a heart and said I spoiled her. Now she has removed that rating and says she wants me to resend.
I sent her new items and items tailored to her profile like the swap says. I sent her several items to add up to the $20 I wrapped and spent shipping on them.
Its getting to the point where I feel like Im being harassed. She says I sent her items with advertisement on them. The stickers that were put on the chipboard tags. I BOUGHT those stickers. THEY ARE NOT ADVERTISING STICKERS.
She also does not like the watch faces I sent her. It says she does Jewelry Making. The packages say jewelry designer. I thought they would be cool to design jewelry with. Guess I was wrong. Again I bought those at the store.
She also does not like that things came in out of my stash. Maybe some did but it said as long as they were new and not missing items we could send from our stash. As long as items were tailored to partners profile as well. I did not randomly pick things. I took time to read and pick things I thought she would like.
I sent her many things trying to tailor them towards her profile.
I did offer to resend. I dont think that is fair however to me just because she did not like the items. I tried as I said.
I also brought up the concern that I had about you the cordinator not contacting me and she said she told the cordinator not to.
It is the cordinators swap not her swap. She should not tell the cordinator what to do. Im sorry she did that.
I understand the argument about working things out between ourselves partner wise. However with this partner's attitude I felt like it could not be worked out.
As I said above I offered to resend but whos to say I resend again and she still not happy.
As I stated in comments I sent her a very nice coaster and notepad as well both geered towards her profile likes.
Also in regards to using items from stash Im directly quoting from the swap
Guidelines: This should be a gift!
Not some random things from your stash unless it's unopened/nothing missing item."
Update on 3: This was a swap for a group. It to be five dollars worth. I sent her postcards. They were not used postcards. They were all never used never written on never sent. Her profile said she like postcards. So I sent her 5 dollars worth. I pretty sure I sent 6 or 7 of them maybe more I cant remember. Where Im from postcards are not cheap and all over a dollar at least. She rated me on June 12 I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY SORT OF MESSAGE FROM HER SINCE MAY 10 WHICH WAS JUST A GENERIC GROUP MESSAGE FOR EVERONE. I had no idea she was unhappy with this. She should have contacted me 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 my partner received it. I used an old address label on it from my aunt we live at the same address. She asked if this was from me when I got it. Ok. Then she started asking questions about my aunt and then me then my job etc. The questions got to be very personal/creepy and I contacted the swap conrdinator about it never heard back. I had to block my partner.
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.
