I have some spots of bad communication on my feedback because I got really really really sick and had a hard time even getting out of bed, ... But the feedback just ends up saying poor communication, without really explanations as to why that was.
Have you asked if a swap mod, or the organizers, can add 'due to illness' to the comments? It just seems to me that it's a helpful thing to know instead of just "poor communication"
I also feel very left out in swap chats. I feel like some people 'know' each other, and I don't, and I don't really have anything to share other than "yep I cut out some fabric for one of the swap items today", which seems weird to throw out there when everyone else is talking about things happening in their lives or something. I've always been anti-social so its hard to jump into conversations once a week, even online!
