I'm organizing my first swap (Halloween Swap 2008) and I'm finding I need to turn a few people away because they're new members already involved in their first swap. In two cases, the date to ship is the same date to ship as mine, so it's not like it's even close and if they sent a little early, they could be done in time for the Halloween one.

Does this tend to happen? I just feel bad telling someone that they're not eligible for the swap. And it made me wonder if other, more seasoned organizers have run into this problem as well. More a curiosity than anything.

Yep, we sure do! Cheesy  I think it's caused by being really excited about swapping and not fully reading the swap guidelines.  Usually a link to the guidelines with a nice note solves the issue. Smiley

That way you seem ultra-helpful and not mean at all!

i had to turn someone away in the swap i organized because they didn't have feedback from their first swap yet.  i told them if they got the feedback in time they could join, but unfortunately they didn't.   Undecided  however since they'd sent their info i held onto it in case i ended up needing an angel i could get in touch with them to see if they'd be interested.

I'm glad you are checking your swappers carefully, phoenixfiredesigns! We love organizers who are on the ball. Puppy_girl, that's a great idea to keep the info in case you need an angel.

Gold stars for both of you, and one for you, too, Sevs.  Cheesy
