Woo hoo!  This is my first ongoing swap, so pardon me if I have questions.  Is there a limit on the number of ATCs that swappers can send/receive?

Maybe, like no more than 5 a day. This way you won't have someone swapping like 100 ATC's in a week! Just my opinion-take it for what it's worth.

I'm so excited, I've wanted to do an ATC swap forever! I pmed superstich with my info, even though I still have lots of questions and I'm not quite sure about how everything works. (because I was afraid that while I was asking questions, the spaces would all be filled up)

Here are my questions: (Btw, I read the Swap Info Guide)
1. I can SEND my cards by October 1, but I can't send them so that they ARRIVE by October 1 (I live in Korea; packages take 1+ weeks to ship to other countries). By the 10/01 deadline, you mean shipping OUT, right? I just wanted to make sure.

2. I don't understand the whole "picking a theme" thingy. I know that ATC cards often have "themes" when they're "editions" in a series or something, but I don't get the area in green text on the first post where it says "The person who picks one of my atc themes will then post their list, and so on and so on."

3. A limit on sending ATCs? I thought that in swapping, you picked a partner, and then sent one package to them and they to you. What does it mean to send "5 a day"? (as pjmclnj said)

Sorry about all these dumb questions! This is my very first swap and I don't want to make any fatal mistakes. Smiley Thanks.

There are no dumb questions if you haven't done one of these before. I have only done 1 so my knowledge is limited. I am sure one of the mods, or Sperstitch (the mod for this swap) will correct whatever I mess up.
It might be helpful for you if you go look at the thread from the 1st Ongoing ATC swap that just ended. It might help. To explain simply- the first person, generally the moderator, posts a list of a few themes/ideas that they would like an ATC made for. One of the other swappers chooses to sign on to make one of the 1st person's items.They post  a message telling their "partner" they have chosen them, they then post their own list of themes for the next person to choose from. Thi is why it's called ongoing. Esentially you are making ATC's almost everyday-one at a time- for the whole swap.
Hope this helps.

ok, i think i will update the rules to say "no more than 5 picks per day"

claustrophilia- you just have to have your atc's sent out by the first, not received, and here is an example of what the swap will look like


superstitch
my list:
camping
pink
tv
travel
paris




pjmclnj
ok i want to make a travel card for superstitch, heres my list:
blah
blah
blah


and then somebody will pick her, and then so on and so on, it can move pretty fast, which is why we decided to go with a week this time

Thank you both!
So basically we're going to be choosing our "partners" during the period of one week?

Also, do you have to choose the person who posted right before you?

I'm just making sure; I read through the first ongoing ATC swap, and I'm not as confused as before.

Yup, you chose the last person on the list, then you become the last person, so the next person has to choose you.
That-a-ways, everytime you make one for someone else, the next person makes one for you!  It makes it fair, so we receive the same number we send.  You can choose 3 the whole week (some people did that few) or 17 (like me, 'cause I am ATC obsessed!).
Glad to see a newbie!  I don't have any stamps from your land, you will HAVE to choose me!  Tongue
