I love all mail but a blank postcard for me means I can easily pass it on to a friend.

For this swap, put 3 new and undamaged blank postcards in an envelope for your partner. Try to give ones they might like and include a nice note or letter. Just a quick swap to either build your collection or mix up your existing one. Extras are nice but they're not at all a requirement.

All welcome, but I'll check participants before assigning. Be prompt with your sending and rating. Have patience with the mail these days and communicate with kindness if there are problems.

To recap, choose 3 new and undamaged blank postcards for your partner with a note or letter. Send in an envelope.

Happy swapping!

hello swap-people , my name is Ulrich ; I just registered few minutes ago ; I would like to send postcards , letters and posters and maybe selfmade stuff to You . kind regards - Ulrich

Hi Ulrich, thanks for introducing yourself. I have sent you a Swap-bot message with some tips if you're new. I hope you enjoy the swap!

Everyone, I forgot to mention that I am willing to angel.

Hello Manaelsa , many thanks for Your quick feedback ; it seems that the swap-bot "reply funktion" within the communication system does not alow a direct answer ( or I am to stupid to find it ) . I `ll read all the give instructions in order to understand how swap bot works . Q: how do You allocate the addresses ?

many thanks - kind regards .

reference :

Hi Ulrich, I'm so happy you'd like to join my swap. I joined this year too! Do you have much experience with snail mail? How is Covid in your country?

Can I recommend being new to the site, you have a read of these instructions:

http://www.swap-bot.com/help.php http://www.swap-bot.com/account/new_user.php

Also, take some time to have a look at other people's profiles and even mine. It's a great way to show people what they might be able to send you or you to them.

You may notice the rating system on the sides of people's profiles. I found a great way to build up my rating was to join electronic email swaps first. Sometimes people won't let you join a swap if you haven't been rated yet! Here are some email swaps you could join:


Alright, well I hope you enjoy the Postcard swap! I'm looking forward to it! Take care, manaelsa/Beth

re covid : about covid in Germany : we don`t believe in Viruses , therefor : no prob :-)

Catconfuser 07/25/2020 #

on postcrossing the system allocates automaticly the receiver add. I thought it would probably work here in a similar way ...

manaelsa 07/25/2020 #

Haha ok. I guess there are many things that can put our lives in danger, not only viruses. Unfortunately many have been affected and I have found the political consequences to be much worse - loss of jobs, border closures etc. My thoughts and prayers are with all affected and we can only do our best to protect each other and the vulnerable in society.

In regards to assigning partners, I will simply press a button. Please read the instructions though to become familiar with it all. Also consider joining an email swap so you can get the idea of how the site works.

Ciao :)

I'm new, I think I understand how it works and if you allow me I'll be happy to participate. I have many postal hobbies and I already have all the material at home. Thank you

manaelsa 07/26/2020 #

Awesome, KlllerMal! Welcome to Swap-bot! I hope you enjoy the swap and it goes well for you. I think the key is to communicate always. Anyway! In the meantime I totally recommend joining a few electronic swaps to build your rating. All the best 😊

Catconfuser 07/27/2020 #

hello Manaelsa ,

now I have sent the 3 letters and I clicked on the button :"sent items" . so everything should be ok now ?

KIllerMal 07/27/2020 #

Grazie del consiglio :) Come faccio a sapere a chi inviare le cartoline?

manaelsa 07/27/2020 #

KIllerMal and Catconfuser, I will assign partners soon. When I do, you will see the yellow box on the side of this swap where you can find who your partner is and who you send to. Just wait until the sign up time is finished.

Catconfuser, you should not have sent anything yet because I haven't assigned your partner. Who did you send to?

manaelsa 07/27/2020 #

Everyone, please know I'm monitoring participants of this swap and have messaged a few people about their participation. I think in future, if swaps I host have newbies, they will need to have at least an electronic swap rating to get used to the Swap-bot process.

I will assign partners in a few hours.

KIllerMal 07/28/2020 #

We all started from the beginning, thanks for your patience :) <3

manaelsa 07/28/2020 #

So true, KIllerMal. All good! 🥰

KIllerMal 07/28/2020 #

I sent the envelope a little while ago :) thanks for hosting my first swap. If needed I have photos of the envelope and the contents.

manaelsa 07/29/2020 #

If you want to send that to your parter, you're welcome to. Sometimes I send my partner a message to let them know the letter is on it's way 🥰

manaelsa 08/ 4/2020 #

Thanks for joining the swap everyone! Remember to rate when you receive. Any issues, communicate with your partner. I'm here to help as well. All the best!
