I was just about to create a new thread about this, but found this old one. I totally agree with lafemmefatale. I've tried to put requests (and answered to others) in the classifieds, but nothing happened. People don't seem to read them. I think that a lot of people would appreciate and use a board for personal swaps/trades. Please answer to this if you agree (or not). I think that many craftsters feel the same way as I do about creating a board like this, but if people don't voice that opinion I understand that it can't happen...

i think a child board in the existing swap category for personal swaps only would be a great idea.  no one really seems to check the classifieds and they're kind of like a separate entity from craftster.  i understand the whole separation thing because i know that craftster takes no responsibilty for people being flaked on in personal swaps, but maybe if there was a big disclaimer on the personal swap board saying "SWAP AT YOUR OWN RISK" or something?  i think it would be great if each person who wanted to do a personal swap could post a query -- maybe with a rule that you had to put something in the subject line about either what you wanted or what you could make, so it wouldn't be a board full of "swap with me!!" posts to slog through.

anyway, that's my just-woke-up two cents Smiley

Just FYI... I'm working on some ideas that might help accomodate Personal Swaps better. More details at some point in the future. Smiley

I'm new and all, but I've been a lurker for a while now. And I wonder why there's no board for people looking to do one on one swaps? Is that against the rules somewhere? Seems like it would be nice to have a say in who my partner is and make our own deadlines and point system and all that...

Personal swaps aren't supported by Craftster.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.msg3712388#msg3712388

21. Am I allowed to do a personal swap with another Craftster member?

You are allowed to, but just as with Organized Swaps, we have to encourage you to be careful with giving your address out over the internet and please remember that neither Craftster nor the site administrators or moderators are responsible if anything happens to your package or if you do not receive a package.  No feedback is given for personal swaps, and there are no angels in cases where one partner never sends.  Personal swaps are "at your own risk." Do not advertise for personal swaps in a post. If you are available for personal swaps, please note that in your signature or indicate that in your profile. If you're interested in doing a personal swap with someone, contact them through a private message.

We do have quarterly Personal Galleries in the Swap Gallery board. The current gallery will always be found at the top of the gallery board.
