mail restrictions in Germany due to COVID19
09.01.2021: Back but deleted most of my profile.
I didn't really miss Swap-Bot. The only reason to return now was my active swap that I didn't want to be deleted by system.
Due to lots of returning flakers with second, third or even more accounts and an admin who obviously doesn't really care, swapping isn't that fun anymore.
I really loved profile based package swaps and pocket letter swaps, but it takes too much time to vet the swaps if you don't want to risk to have to send many angel swaps.
I know there are many hosts who don't care if the swappers in their swaps get flaked on because swapping should be fun. But it's no fun when flakers can return and flake again with new profiles or scammers flake on many people because others rate 5s with hearts for swaps that have never been sent.
I think I'll still do some postcard swaps, but mainly I'll swap on postcrossing again.
22.12.2020: Will be off for some days, maybe weeks. Need some time to free my mind.
Colleague tried to commit suicide yesterday at the office. He's in hospital now and is over the worst. It was a very strange atmosphere today as nobody can understand how it came to that. Colleague who spoke to him yesterday about 2 or 3 hours before he slashed his wrists told me today that he was as usual
Guess 2021 only can be better...
I received and rated all swaps as I stopped swapping already some tima ago.
So far I'm still waiting for two postcards (or their re-sends) to arrive and if needed I'll do another re-send when I'm back.
Second complete lockdown starting from Dec 16 with most stores closed...
Germany is going into another partial shutdown starting on November 2nd. All stores stay open. No restrictions for the postal system, it shouldn't be affected, but who knows... I moved all swaps to the watchlist and will decide on the sign-up-deadline if i can join.
