Just chipping in here...

I always thought the principle of the Unconditional Swaps was really nice.  But just from browsing the threads, it was painfully obvious that some craftsters sadly used them as an opportunity to consistently post their list but NEVER craft anything in return.  It's a shame when people try to milk other people's generosity. 

But kudos to everyone who ever sent in an unconditional swap!!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Also, I think angelling for some is just as good as an unconditional swap if not better as not only do you send with no expectation of receiving, but you get to do a small kindness to someone who's down on their luck!!

The thing that strikes me about angelling is yes, there are some people on Craftster who are unwilling/unable to honour their commitment to swapping, but there are SO many more Craftsters willing to pick up the slack.  It really shows that swapping isn't just about receiving something, but it's about everybody having a blast!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Thank you, ZombieFlesh, for starting the Three Wishes swap! I bookmarked it and I'll jump into it a little later, once I finish up the crafts I am currently making for people. I think it's a great idea.  Grin

I also really like the sound of a "Not So Unconditional" swap. Maybe in this swap, people could continue to post a list of at least six items, so there is a lot to browse through. Also, maybe in this swap, people might focus on posting some of their smaller, easier-to-fulfill wishes, for folks who are looking for a fun, quick-moving swap? What do you think?

Thanks Sew Pixie.
Just a friendly reminder, it seems like most of the issues being brought up now have already been addressed ad nauseum in the thread. I know it's hard to read long rambling threads, but this one is worth a look and the whole thing was on topic Smiley

agree! on to more important issues like crafting, ha ha

Some people are coming to this thread a bit late, I think it's good to discuss the changes. It's brought about a whole new type of swap that wouldn't have been born otherwise. Cheesy

holy crap!  i just remembered the swaps that i had been organizing when i took them over from hertrigger...  the 2006 wishlist swaps!

are those considered unconditional? 

basically it was a big thread with a bunch of people's lists of things they want, but they had to craft for someone in order to post their list.  whoever wasn't picked from that round got to post their list for free in the next round, but the organizer always posted a list of people that hadn't been picked yet about once a week.

from what i was researching, it went from me to Ember77 for two months, then to Whiskey and it changed to "Ongoing wish swap (month) 2006" but dropped out of existence at the end of September.

here's the link to the last one i organized:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87731.0

hmm... i'll have to see if it can be revived.  i'd add a longer crafting time to it, but you don't have to be on your toes to pick someone a la the ongoing wish swaps. 

mods, what do you think?

It's totally allowed!
The clause that you have to craft to be able to post your list is all that is needed. It doesn't matter if not everyone receives. It should only be around a month long though- for feedback issues Smiley
Cool swap- thanks for organizing!

Yeah...  I passed on the ongoing wish swap because i'll be gone for a bit in november, but I believe i can take my jump drive with me and it will be okay.  *sigh* i can't get away from organizing swaps Wink  Grin

So... who would like to be my backup organizer?
