15601  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: A thread for Personal Swaps? on: March 24, 2006 03:40:56 PM
Until we have a positive personal swap place, I'd just like to thank "d" here. I needed bottle caps and d was SO nice and sent me all kinds of cool Canandian ones to craft with, as well as putting up with all my "new crafster" questions. Three cheers for d!!!!

Hip hip, hooray!

Awh!  That's great!  You can you the gallery... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=85430.0

Yikes...looks like I've stepped on some toes by not checking in with Leah or the moderators Undecided  If one of the moderators would unlock the topic, I will fix it ASAP.  Thanks!

It's no problem  Smiley  These ideas are great & we would never want to stop the creativity & new concepts that spawn from these sorts discussions!

A great place, with a little more exposure, for new ideas is, the Craftster Itself board http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=69.0 and Suggest New Boards & New Features http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=106.0  By posting at either of these boards, Leah also has a greater opportunity of seeing your ideas.  Or just PM any of us & we can start a thread on the Mod boards for her/us to talk about it.

The personal swap button sounds cute!  You might want to start a thread with it, on one of the boards mentioned above.  You could include a link back to this thread, for more details.  On an individual basis...you could include a regular URL link in your signature, that would function as the same purpose & not require coding from Leah  Smiley

I unlocked the gallery & edited it to just be a gallery...a monthly one, for Personal/Private Swaps   Kiss

Oh, my boyfriend just came to see why I'm making such happy noises!

Thanks so much for answering me!

LOL. Yeah, they will do that for awhile.  Give him awhile, he will get used to them & stop giving you those really funny looks.

Mine even ships out my swap packages now!  Smiley  I think he gave up the fight.  Probably the "if you can't beat them, join them" concept.

Hmm...we shoud have Craftster t-shirts for the "other halfs" in our lives.  LOL.  I can only imagine the slogans.

But why, shouldn't someone be acknowleged for being honorable. i would like to have an avenue to check out and see if the swappee has followed through, is all.

That's totally cool.  Here is what we are thinking...(and I think it would fulfill your avenue need Smiley )...

A gallery (just like the one that was already started), but no feedback or any time of organizer assigned to the gallery.  There are already Moderators assigned to the galleries (I mentioned them earlier), so no need for volunteer Moderators either.

How about a monthly personal swaps gallery?  If you have recieved in that month, you could post pictures in that gallery.  That way, if you want to see if someone is honorable, you could search for their username/pictures of their craft, in that gallery, or a recent month's gallery.

No feedback, no negatives, no organizers... just lots of pictures & positive comments about your personal swaps Smiley

Can anyone, SOMEONE tell me HOW that you got the "Friend of Craftster" icon to show up on your posts??

I did all the steps.  I went and signed up, it took my $12 through PayPal, I got the email that it went through, and I chose the heart icon in my profile.  That was 2 nights ago.

This is VERY frustrating.

Any help will be appreciated by this NEWBIE....

Hey there!

We'll look into it for ya Wink  ("we" actually meaning once Leah can find a spare moment)  We will get you fixed up though, promise!

I think the goal of this thread is to let other members know who is open to personal swaps and that they honor/appreciate them. d

I definitely think this is a good idea Smiley  I know a lot of members who do personal swaps & have an awesome time doing them, as well as making longtime friends through Craftster.

A killer thread to see who is open to personal swaps is:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42415.0
And also as mentioned already, include it in your signatures...because those show up everywhere you post Smiley

I don't think a general gallery would be a problem (I don't speak for all or assume that though Wink ), it was the implementation of Personal Swap feedback in the Swapping Profiles, that caught some eyes & may need reviewed further.
15608  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Organizers have to swap? on: March 19, 2006 09:21:18 PM
I think that it's alright to organize, even if you don't participate as a swapper in the swap Wink

After all, would you rather have an Organizer that is giving 100% to solely organizing, or an Organizer that knew she wouldn't quite have enough time to do both, but went ahead & organized and crafted/swapped anyway.  But in the end, she only gave 50% to each task?  Wink
15609  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: A thread for Personal Swaps? on: March 19, 2006 09:01:41 PM
And since it wasn't technically a craftster swap, is that even something that's been okayed by the appropriate people (the mods or Leah, not sure who would have to do that)?

That was going to be precisely our question Wink

I think the ideas here are wonderful!  But a gallery, (especially with feedback in the swap profiles) that isn't linked to a swap, that meets the Swapping Guidelines, definitely needs to be discussed with Leah and/or the Moderators, specifically the Moderators of this board:  LiquidScissors, super geek, jMi, Morning Star, hertrigger.

Perhaps some sort of personal swapping profile could be implemented.  Or even the idea you guys have discussed here.  Who knows?  Well, Leah & the Moderators, of course  Grin  Has anyone contacted any of the aforementioned Moderators already?

Hi all!  Great topic & discussion!

I think many aspects & ideas of this topic have been covered.  It's been edited in some instances, but I think the points of view and suggestions are all remain.  So, we are going to lock it and leave it as that Wink

The Swap, Category, Global Moderators & Leah will review the Swap Post Starter to see if we can't include your suggestions into the standard template, as well  Smiley

If you want to PM me with anything regarding this (or anything!)...please, please feel free to Wink
