We still occasionally have people who don't send, but at least this minimizes the damage if we do have someone flake.

One very nice thing about swapping here is that if you are flaked on in a swap, the organizer will get a swap angel for you. No one is left without receiving.  Smiley

DJillM, almost every swap welcomes first timers.  Once you have 15 posts, you can sign up for any swap that does not specifically say that they don't allow first time swappers.  The 2 swap qualification is for organizers, not regular swappers.

I look forward to swapping with you soon!

Hi,

My name is Emily. I was looking through the swaps today and noticed that all of them require that you have already completed two swaps. Is this two swaps on Craftster?  I have not participated in any swaps on Craftster but I have participated in many on other online communities. Could you guys direct me to swaps that allow to be a newbie on Craftster.

Thanks for your help

The two swaps requirement is if you want to organize a swap. If you just want to be in a swap, there isn't usually a requirement to have taken previous swaps (some of the big swaps like "make a friend" have prior swap requirements)

Double check the swap you're interested in. The swap info has 2 sections of requirements, one section is the requirements that the organizer has to be meet and the one is the requirements for the participants --

This is from one of the open swaps - it's the organizer who needs 2 prior swaps, not the participants.

Swap Organizer herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this

Thank you so much!!! For one thing I noticed that I barely spelled any words correctly in my post LOL, I didn't pay good enough attention when reviewing the swaps. Thanks I plan on signing up for one today or tomorrow.


Ready to get Swap Happy,

Make sure you read through the Swap rules and the other helpful information posted in the forums, like the Swap FAQ and other helpful tips.

Hi Everyone,

I am new to Craftster and would love to participate in a swap but they all require that I have at least one completed.

So  how can you have one completed if you can't join any?


Thanks!!!!

Vanessaly, I merged your post with another thread of similar questions.  I think ThreadOrYarn had a great explanation of the swap signups, so I'll just quote her below. Smiley
