ORGANIZATIONAL POST
wow! I just checked the roster and see we have 40 swappers signed up! NICE group of swappers, really interesting themes have been chosen - I think that getting partners is going to be exciting with so much variety!

and I can not wait to see what the gallery on this swap looks like!   Shocked

I want to give a heads up to all before partners are assigned - so I know you are all still paying attention to the thread and not immersed in each other, LOL!  Wink

first - once partners are assigned to groups I will start the gallery but PLEASE no one can post in it until after cupcakeaccessories posts second in the thread - she needs the second spot to list her group as we will be doing feedback there. I will send her a link and I think that link will get added to the first post on this thread by cupcakeaccessories once she has posted her group.  Cheesy

second - I really put a lot of emphasis on communication! I think that the key to a successful swap and getting a package that you like is communication. Between partners and with organizers!  Wink
So I will send out little PM's periodically to my group asking anyone who hasn't sent yet to check in with me to let me know if you and your partner are visiting with each other and to ask for a progress update. Considering the length of this swap, I will likely send several of these. I expect swappers to respond within 48 hours to any check-in PM, unless they are not online - and to respond ASAP the next time they are online! I save all PM's to and from me until the swap is totally over, in case of issues - and I do follow ups on those who don't check in!

third - once again! PM your partner and your organizer when you send and when you receive! We can't keep track of everyone that posts in the gallery no matter how hard we try with this large a group!  Shocked

fourth - Do not forget DC#'s and tracking numbers in the USA and Customs numbers when sending out of country - or whatever sort of tracking numbers you can get. This will help to prove that you sent a package in the event of issues later on, and without that proof we can't be sure you sent until your partner tells us you did, and posts pics! If you don't know what these numbers are or how to find them - ask your partner, organizer, a moderator, or even the postal clerk!
This is really important as packages get lost, are misdirected to the wrong zipcodes, get stolen from doorways, etc - and we can't check up on that if we don't have a number to give the postal service for checking!

fifth - so you know now, I give feedback in pairs. Once both partners in a pair receive and post photos, I will give both of them their feedback. However, if you have sent and your partner has received, and you need your feedback, send me a PM and I will see what can be done (this is where those tracking numbers help out too).  Wink

sixth - no matter how much we plan and organize and try to have no problems, things happen!
People get sick, internet gets disconnected, people move, life happens!
If you are having a problem with communications because you can't get online - go to a friend's or a relative's or the library and let partner and organizer know! If you are having trouble meeting your swap obligations for whatever reason, contact your organizer and your partner as soon as you can. Extensions with communication are a lot better than negative feedback for disappearing!  Undecided

last and not least - remember that the swap process is supposed to be fun! So - have a great time!

I think I am looking forward to seeing who will be in my group almost as much as I am looking forward to finding out who my partner will be! And I hope that my group will be satisfied with me as their organizer, and the swap overall will be happy with me as co-organizer!  Cheesy

Ronda

Snow? What's that? I live in Florida. There's no such thing as snow here. In fact, Love was born here and thus has NEVER seen snow in his life!  Shocked Can you imagine? I've at least seen it, though it's been like 22 years.

It rained though today. Quite nasty thunder storms, tornadoes hitting northern Florida and lots of lightning. All-around icky day.

Now I'm all confused with all the 50 and 80 degrees, you should all be melting!  Wink I'm used to Celcius degrees here. And we're having another snow storm this weekend. The snow has already started, but just a little, it should get worst. But I actually love winter and I like the snow. Good thing too since winter seems to be lasting for half the year.  Tongue

And thanks RondaS for the 'official post'. It's really well explained and will be easy to follow.  Smiley

This helps: http://www.onlineconversion.com/temperature.htm

I refer to it all the time when I blog so I can give the Celsius conversion for my international readers.

(FYI: 50F/10C and 80F/26.6C)  Wink

Yep, I'm all the way up in Canada!  Smiley And thanks phoenixfiredesigns for the link, that'll be very useful, I'm bookmarking it.

And I have to say, the fact that this swap will involved research (on the themes you have to craft for) makes the nerd in me very happy.  Tongue
