"Has completed at least one swap successfully before signing up for more"


abbynormal, you are not the first swapper to be confused by this wording. I think we may need to go in and change it!

Actually, unless an organizer specifies a number of swaps that one must have completed before signups, you are welcome to join ANY swap for your first swap. You must, however, successfully complete that first swap before you sign up for multiple swaps (up to 5) at a time.

Happy swapping!

I merged two threads... so don't think someone is kookie for asking the same question again.  Make sure to look at the individual post topics.  Hehe.... Smiley

Ms. Racky has got the ball rolling on reviewing the confusing wording!  Hopefully we'll get it updated soon for ya guys and for new swappers as well.  Smiley

You know what's really funny? I searched and searched for someone else asking that question last night and I couldn't find one! But, I was tired and watching flashdance at the same time! Maybe I was distracted! Thanks for the help and advice, fellow craftsters!!! Grin

Aww... Smiley  It's okay.  It was in another folder, so I pulled it over here where I thought it fit in better.

I've been looking at the swaps but apparently since I've never done one I can't enter any...at least none of the ones I've looked at which has been about 6, that would apply to me or I have interest in. Is there a first timer swap or something that I can join?

Are you sure you aren't looking at the Organizer requirements for those swaps?  Be sure to look at the Participant section. Smiley

I have that problem too.... I really want to participate in a swap, but none that I can tell, allow first timers... ...At the disgression of the organizer, of course they're going to decide that you have already done two swaps to make their jobs eaiser (which I don't blame them) so... It's pretty difficult for a first timer to get into swapping. I really want to... but if we send in a request, then we'll just be denied... so we have no options. Sad

I think you're probably reading the form incorrectly.  Be sure you are looking at the Participant requirements for the swap and NOT the Organizer requirements.

I'm just about to start organizing my third swap (Valentine's "classroom" card - it's listed in the new swap ideas section) I always welcome first time swappers. Smiley

I think I read through the swaps that are currently posted about 50 times. You were right initially, I was reading the Organizer requirement but the Participant requirements ALSO says need you to have already done a swap in order to join...
Is this a regular thing? To only post swaps with this requirement: Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time.

Am I missing something? Cause I really want to get involved.

Thx
