Some organizer reminders guys!
Communication has been all over the place lately, so I'd like to remind you all you need to tell me when you ship (including the Delivery Confirmation number if you're shipping within the states) and when you receive. Also really important is letting me know in a personal message that you may be late. Posting to the thread doesn't count as informing me of what's happening -- it needs to be a personal message.
To that end, here's my suggestion for formatting of your PMs to keep communication clear for the occasionally slow me.
1. Please put both addresses in the TO field. That way you, me, and your swap person knows that communication is happening. Plus if you don't include the name of the person you're swapping with in the message I can figure out who you're talking about.
2. Bcc means Blind
carbon copy -- useful if you want to send a message and hide some of the recipients. Please don't use it with this swap, thanks!
3. Please include the name of the person you're swapping with (send or receive) in your message. Some people have also included the number of the swap exchange as found here
, that's *awesome useful* for me.
4. If you get a customs or delivery confirmation number, you need to send it to me too! It goes in with your info in the swap spreadsheet on my PC and my psychic abilities keep betraying me. Also, if you don't get a number for whatever reason, please let me know that too. And yes "the evil post office lady wouldn't give me one, I hate her!" counts as a reason.
Also, I respond to all swap messages with a confirmation PM so you know I got it and it's been inputed where needed. If you don't receive one within 48 hours of sending me a PM (regarding the swap, personal PMs... all bets are off) please resend.
