Comment: I know I replied that it was fine to resend. But after talking to the host, it was recommended I go ahead and rate now. If something does turn up, I'll change the rating. Edited 11/23/20: Maggie, thank you for the re-send Halloween card. It arrived today. Thank you also for the extra note cards, it was very kind of you to include them. The host did angel for me. But since you re-sent, I am changing the rating. Thank you and happy holidays! Edited again: I'm sorry, I was wrong re-rating to the 5. Unfortunately due to the lateness, I have to rate a 3.
Comment: It's been a long time since I've had to rate like this and it takes a lot for me to do so. You live in a neighboring state and I feel my swap should be here by now. Even with the wildfires I have continued trading with OR WA and CA and it hasn't taken this long. I've pm'd you twice with no response. As of today there has been no communication and no swap received looks like from both partners. The hostess will be angeling this swap. Happy Halloween!
UPDATE: Today is November 10th. Received a swap Thank you. I am changing the rating to an appropriate 3 with the information I already provided and the problems with other members swaps. I see now this was not an isolated problem with just my swap.
Response: Hello Bonnie! I'm so sorry I read your message late, we will keep in touch in message! UPDATE: sent the resend on the 2nd, the fastest I could get it out once I messaged my partner. Should be on its way! :)
Comment: Swap deadline 12/12. Nothing arrived by the New Year so I PM'd you on 1/2 to tell you nothing had arrived. You replied in 1/5 and said you would resend on 1/6. It is now 1/22 (over two weeks later) and still nothing has arrived. I will be glad to re-rate you if I ever receive this swap.
**UPDATE** Finally received the second Resend on Jan. 29th. Your envelope was postmarked on Jan. 27th. So why couldn't this have happened Dec. 12th when the swap was due? Then I would have received my Santa swap before Christmas (instead of over a month late). Please send your swaps out ON TIME and with the CORRECT POSTAGE to avoid this in the future.
Response: Oh Ms. Lyons, where do I even begin with your UNFAIR rate. Firstly, rating a 3 means that I did not meet swap posted requirements: which I don't even know since you did not rate me based on the contents of my swap but rather the postmark of my re-send -_- . I kept in touch with you throughout and messaged you. You state that the first swap got lost in the mail by "crazy holiday postal crush" and then say " So why couldn't this have happened Dec. 12th when the swap was due" ( so do you acknowledge it was lost or not?? ) I never sent a "second" re-send, only one resend that unfortunately got returned to me for postage due which I also messaged you about and even told you the postage amount that I paid extra for. That is why it was postmarked on the 27th and I messaged you that same day. Overall you pretty much rated me down because the post office LOST my first original swap ( or so YOU claim ) and because the re-send got returned for more postage, which I paid rather than it getting to you with postage due. BOTH of which is not my fault. You do not need to tell me "Please send your swaps out ON TIME and with the CORRECT POSTAGE to avoid this in the future "......., I would not have been on swap bot for 8 years with all 5s if I was not aware of that rule -_- IRONICALLY this was a Christmas swap, but there is obviously no thankfulness, gratefulness nor Christmas spirit with you and the way you responded and ignored my messages. Hope you enjoyed all the things I sent you in both the original swap and re-send because I do not plan to swap with you in the future.
