so, when the actual sign up opens, will it be on this same thread?
No, it will not be in this same thread. You are currently in the "New Swap Theme Ideas" board. The real swap thread will be listed in the "Craft Swaps" board. However, Pinkleo
will definitely post a link here once the swap is open, directing you to the new thread.
Please, remember that as a new swapper you need to check out the following pages of information about Swaps:
The official Swap Info Guide (Rules of Swapping)
The Swap FAQ's page
and Information and Tips for Swappers
And speaking as one of the organizers on the last HP swap, these are something experienced swappers should take time to review regularly too!
Thanks for explaining everything, I have read the swap info stuff twice, but I just wanted to make sure I had it right
