732  Re: Neutral Swap Feedback in Talk About The Swap Process by sweets4ever on: July 02, 2006 09:49:19 PM
I was thinking Neutral feedback wouldn't stop people from joining more swaps until a certain number were awarded.  But them someone would need to monitor than (a Mod maybe). 

There should just be a way to attach feedback that doesn't necessarily stop people from swapping but puts a warning out there.  And maybe organizers who are organizing a more complicated swap (FOC, My Country doesn't have that) might wish NOT to include those who have Neutral feedback.

If the participant is "In Progress," but they are in communication with you & for some reason they are sending 3 weeks late, couldn't you put the comments as "IN COMMUNICATION, BUT WILL BE SENDING 3 WKs. LATE"?  This would flag organizers that are looking to approve them for new swaps, that perhaps they don't need to join an additional swap at the time.

I think that would serve the same purpose as creating another feedback option (neutral).  Then once they sent, they can have a positive, but be sure to update the comments appropriately.  Possibly..."SENT 3 WKs LATE, but great package."

I don't ever see it as an option for a mod to monitor all profiles.  That made my head hurt just thinking about it...  Cheesy  I can't accurately tell you the the ratio of moderator:active feedback profiles, but I can imagine it's pretty crazy.  But if organizers are looking at profiles before they approve the individuals, I don't see how using the comments field for this purpose wouldn't be of some sort of help.

A lot of the time my partners have contacted me and said they will be sending late (some with really good reasons, like yours) and I have to say it's ok, 'cause really what choice do I have, it's gonna be late either way   Cheesy  If I say it's NOT ok it's not like they are going to get it out any sooner.  I've sent late too, and I feel like crap.  But for repeat offenders there should really be something we can do, if every person that eventually sends gets a positive, that sucks.

I think if everyone used the comments field in the manner I described above, it would be very easy to notice if someone has a pattern of sending late.  This would not only help future organizers, but us mods as well!  Smiley

If you are an organizer & notice an excessive repeat offender you can always contact a mod to investigate and/or take this into consideration when approving and partnering your participants.

Even if someone has 6 "SENT LATE" comments, it may or may not mean they are a habitual late sender.  All 6 occurrences may have occurred in the same 2 week timespan due to a family emergency or something of the like.  If the 6 "SENT LATE" comments span over months & month, well, then that's a different story.  Smiley  All of these things have to be taken into consideration.

That's just my ...I hope it does more help than harm!  Smiley

733  Re: Need help with Etsy polymer clay store banner in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by sweets4ever on: June 28, 2006 08:40:39 PM
Woot!!   Congrats!  When people put banners up for the first time, it always reminds me of a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new building.  *laugh*  Smiley  The one part I don't like is the line that the left side of the pasta machine creates near your text because it draws my eye over there.  But I may be weird like that.  Cheesy  It's cute though!

I nabbed photos of your pieces from your posts, I just never got a chance to sit down & play with them until now.  Sad  Even the text is made of your clay!  Smiley

This one is small 480 x 69, but the full size 535 x 77 is here.

734  3 Simple, Misc. Melted Bead Projects <IMG heavy> in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: June 28, 2006 10:17:01 AM
Here are a few random things I did last week... Smiley
I used plastic, faceted beads, such as these for all of them, an oven temp of 375 and varying baking durations.

A little tin with a colorful stained glass effect.  Doesn't get much easier than this!   Grin
I used the lid as the mold.

A new spoon rest... Smiley  Pretty exciting, huh?  It's silly, but I thought I'd share anyway.  Tongue
I used an actual spoon rest as the mold.

A suncatcher of a tree...  Smiley
I used a round cake pan lined with foil as the mold.

I was going to setup paypal but then decided not to because You have to pay for that and I wasn't selling anything. But I think I might because it seems some people prefer to use that over checks and money orders.

Ahhh... okay!  Smiley  I think it might increase your sales if you offered PayPal, but that's just my .  I think ya said ya were bummed about your sales.  I can't really see any other reason for them not to be hoppin', so it might be something ya could consider Smiley

I'm too anxious of a shopper to wait for checks to mail, then process...so I *love* paying with PayPal, Visa, etc.  I want a cellphone cozy though, so holler at me if/when you create a PayPal account... 'cause I'll be all over it.  Smiley

It isn't a burden at all!  I have some other custom orders to get to this weekend, but I could start next week.  I will list him in my shop when he is done.  Did you have a special color and size?  The turtles are about 3".  Did you want him in a costume or Naked?

LOL, you can say that because you've never had to deal with me...hehehe!

Not many colors, but I used your current stuff for color samples... Smiley  I just want him to sit on his rump (not on all fours) and holding a lil' heart in his hand.  Here's my ghetto fabulous drawing, I used your grey alien as a texture pattern, lol.

Thanks Sweets4ever, Synne, Carriem23, and Tygra for your comments Smiley
I like how the wood looks but quite a few people have said it's distracting so I'll try a plain background also I guess.
Thanks again

I played around with one of your bags... Smiley  The overall background image quality is lowered (for Craftster posting purposes), but the difference on this one is so dramatic.  I really like the white background on a piece like this.  I makes the fabric POP!  Shocked

Wood is okay, but plain or even something craftier would be hella cute as well.. Smiley  Just my , cute stuff - either way!
