Swap name: Video Game Swap 3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: irid3sc3nt
Sign-up date range: 4/10 through 4/20
Date to send item by: 5/14

Limited to a certain number of people?  No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages, but if you are under 18, just be sure that
A)   you have your parents permission (youll be using their address OR a P.O. Box)
B)   you have access to a computer where you can keep in contact (i.e. if you get grounded from a home computer, you can use the one at the library)
C)   you are able to walk/get a ride to the post office ON TIME
D)   you have enough supplies or funds to purchase supplies needed to create awesome crafted items

Swap Organizer himself/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, I'm not.
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: 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

Communication is valuable in swaps.  Its important to chat with your swap partner, especially to say thank you.  Its also important to speak with the organizer if you have any questions whatsoever.  I will try my best to answer and if I dont know the answer, I will speak with a moderator who will!  If an emergency situation comes up (hey, stuff happens) leave me a note.  I do send out reminder PMs if you are late, so dont take them as personal attacksI didnt know you broke your leg crafting (you gotta watch out for those extension cords)!
If I feel that from your past crafting experiences (i.e feedback) that you may be a bit behind with the communication, I may have your swap partner wait to send until theyve received from you first.

A FEW STIPULATIONS
Moving soon?  Having financial trouble?  Thesis to write?  PLEASE, sort those craft-hindering events out before you swap.  Think about your potential partner over your own desire to join this swap.  And, hey, maybe ask about a second round instead.
Going to be out of town when the package arrives?  Have a third party ready to pick up your package from the PO and send me a PM.
Dont have a camera/camera fell off the bridge?  Let your partner know beforehand so they can snap some shots of their crafts to put up in the gallery.
Do you or your roommate(s) smoke?  Launder or air-freshen your crafts before sending please!

ABOUT THIS SWAP
It's round 3 of the successful Video Game Swap!  You'll have about three weeks to craft for your partner around the video game theme, taking into account their likes and dislikes.  You may have to research a little if you don't know about a certain game (Wikipedia is awesome for this).

WHAT TO CRAFT
1 large item, 2 medium items, and 1 small item.  Or you can mix n match depending upon what you and your partner agree upon:
1 large=2 medium=8 small
1 medium=4 small
Communication is key in swaps, so get to know your partner, and have fun crafting (and take time to play your video games, too)!

If you want to participate, please send this information to the organizer and have the title of your PM be "Video Game Swap 3":

I want to note that almost everything is the same as the last round except that I put more emphasis on communication and the crafting time is shorter, about 3 weeks and 3 days.

Signups end tonight at midnight!  If you're thinking you want to join, now would be a good time as I'm probably going to organize a couple different swaps in May and won't have a round 4 until the summer, if there's enough interest.
Right now there are six ppl, there's always room for more!  Grin
