I have participated in many swaps and it seems a lot of the time, for me at least, my downstream partner either forgets to post pictures in the swap gallery or just doesn't. I end up posting the pictures myself, which is fine, I guess, but for me, I often forget to take pictures in my excitement to send.

I understand that people get busy and forget to post pictures, which is why  I want to suggest that we put a suggestion on the document "how to be an organizer" or whatever that says to keep track of the pictures that have been posted or haven't been posted, so if pictures aren't posted, they can make a gentle reminder or note it in the feedback.

I've organized swaps before and after the person sent, I considered them done and figured the picture posting was up to them and their partner, but like I said, sometimes people forget Smiley

Yes, I agree! I have done that as the sender before, but I felt really bad doing so (like I was assuming that they wouldn't), and in that instance, the recipient assured me that it might take some time, but they would do it. However, time passed and it never happened.

Same here.  Sometimes I see that partner online & think perhaps she will still remember and post them (it was a long, long time ago Cheesy).
