For this swap you'll send a postcard of your choice (homeade or store bought) to your partner. You'll only have one partner and this swap is international so anyone can join :)

On the postcard write a little message to whoever you're sending it to, it can be about where you're from, what you did that day, your hobbies, a favorite quote, etc. Mail the postcards naked(no envelope) and don't forget to include your swap-bot username somewhere on the postcard so your partner can rate you.

There's a week to sign-up and then a week to send your postcard, postcards must be sent by Febuary 3rd! Please only sign-up if you can meet the sending deadlines because nobody likes to be flaked on. Newbies are welcome to join, as long as you have a well-filled out profile!

I find it directly under the swap description, just to the left of "Watch Swap".

Is the person that you sent to the one that will also send to you? If so, what happens when it says they haven't sent and the deadline is past? As a newbie, just wondered!

Cheia 02/ 4/2012 #

I never got anything here so far, but well, I'm from Europe, so it may take longer - but I can tell you, the person sending you something doesn't have to be the same you sent something to, not even sure if that's possible at all - expect for 2 people swaps maybe ;) No idea what happens when the deadline is past and someone is still left on unsent. Maybe they didn't know how to mark it? Or forgot about it? Or just left? :/ - I'm new too, just wanted to try and help :)

pnicholls- Cheia's right, it's not usually the same person you're sending and recieving from, especially in this swap because there are so many swappers. I checked and so far one person still hasn't sent their postcard. I tried to message and remind them but there wasn't any response so if you don't recieve anything from your partner within the next few weeks and they don't respond to messages I would give them a poor rating or sumbit their username to "The Swap-Bot Flakers Group", that way everyone will know they don't follow through with their swaps. Hope that helps :) ~Snailmailer

One more comment, I sent to Australia and received from US today. Seems like US would be paired with US and foreign paired with foreign. Is that up to the swap co-ordinator, or is it through some automated, random process? Just wondering how all this works ...

This swap was an international one so anyone could join, there are regional swaps that only allow members from a certain country to join(you can look for those in the swap's info). The swap-coordinator doesn't get to decide who is partnered together it's just a random process.
