I'm just curious...At what point is it acceptable to start becoming paranoid and/or annoyed at the lack of involvement of an organizer?  Both my partner and I received our packages from each other two weeks ago, and still no feedback.  I guess that maybe, since I've already been in a swap where the organizer jumped ship that I'm easily bothered by it, but I wanted to know if there is a general time frame that should be adhered to before contacting a MOD.  Thanks!

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

I would say that two weeks is way too long for an organizer of an active swap to be missing. If you pm me with all the swap details, and a link to the gallery where you and your partner posted, I'll be happy to fix your feedback for you.

I had a organizer disapear for a long time and I sent an email to the help desk because I was paranoid. The mods helped organized things and the awol organizer reappeared and it turned out she had emergency surgery and got an infection from it so she had been the hospital the whole time. So if you thinks something up, let a mod know or email the craftster help desk, so they can help control the chaos.

I think if an organizer becomes MIA, that should be noted on their feedback. Swappers are rated; organizers should have a system to be rated on, too.
We all know things happen. Life happens. But a simple message to let someone know what's going on is usually all it takes.

Well, organizers do get feedback.It's up to the swap moderators to note a negative feedback.

You scared me, DisneyFan...haha. I feel like a horrible organizer if I can't get to swap stuff for one day. Guess I'm a little hard on myself...weeks!?!? I would never do that!
