Maybe this should go on the craftster suggestions board (there is one, isn't there?), but I thought more people who would be interested would find it here. Maybe it's just me, but I find it very strange that whenever I take a look at the suggestions for new swaps board I always find several threads that are discussion threads for different swaps on the top (STS, OWS, OWYHS...). I understand that they are placed there because they shouldn't take up room on the craft swaps board, but do they really belong among the new swap suggestions? If I wanted to find a less busy swap discussion thread, I would have to look through a lot of new swap suggestion headlines. O.k. it wouldn't be a BIG problem, but still it seems a bit of an odd place to put those discussion threads, doesn't it?

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

there just aren't enough of them to warrant their own board (imo) that's why the ongoing swaps board was merged with the swap sign ups board, because there wasn't enough of them to have their own board. just my opinion and what i've observed

Yes, I can understand that. Still it kind of bothers me. I guess it's my OCD or something.  Grin But, come to think about it, wouldn't they be better suited in the "Talk About The Swap Process" board, because they are more of swap talk than new swap ideas?

There aren't that many of those that it's hard to find true new swaps, so I don't see it as a problem.  Smiley

I think that the ones you're speaking of are the really large swaps with a lot of conversation about the items and the like.  I don't think that there is a better place to put them. 

If they were in the "Talk about the Swap Process" area (here), there would end up being a bunch of them as they start a new one every month.  Where would we archive the old ones?  Then this board would be cluttered up too. Cheesy

Sometimes it's hard to find places to put specific things as there aren't similar things to put them with. Smiley
