The last one was an ongoing one & that's how I assumed this one would be too. You make a list & someone claims you for the goodies on your list. I hadn't looked at how the ones before were done.

Personally, I prefer the ongoing method. It lets you claim more than once & send and receive more packages which = even more fun!! Smiley Plus, if someone wants Asian things for example & you live near an area that has lots of Asian stores than US to US can work, too.

Yes, you will be paired with a partner. It will not be ongoing.
Aw, poo, I much rather prefer the ongoing method.

mini says it right!

besides, after seeing other people's lists, you see things that you could get that you wouldn't have thought of before.

yeah me three. if it's not ongoing i'm definitely out.

i thought the ongoing method worked best to make sure people got what they would like to receive.  i'd hate to be paired with someone who wanted stuff from my country, but stuff i didn't have access to.  i know last round a couple of people asked for things from australia that i would have no idea where to get them or they were too expensive.

I'd prefer an ongoing swap as well. I was in the last round (which was ongoing) and it worked very well.

People could join at any time during the month and decide how many times they wanted to send.

An ongoing swap also solves the problem of finding a partner for all the people from the USA.

Well, I think that would be up to the organizer. One would like to do it one way, and if you want to do it the other way, wouldn't it make sense to offer to organize yourself? Or a few of the ongoing fans be the organizers?

The other gal did mention that the last swap needed two or three angels, so I don't know if that's necessarily working very well.

Just my 2c, but I think it would be fun to participate either way!

I certainly did offer to organize. However classycrafter said she was able to start before I could. Since our swappers are very excited to start swapping sooner rather than later, I agreed that she could go ahead & organize since I wouldn't be able to get to it until later in August.... So, I'm confused by your comment.

Three of our flakers had this as their first swap. There is no way of know whether having a regular swap would have made it better.

As you say, it is up to the organizer to decide who s/he wants to run the swap. But I certain think it's important to discuss the options, no?
