one both sides of teh fence  here  I am scatter brained and have forgotten to post pics. (in teh swap I was organizing at that!)  BUT  as soon as I got a reminder I posted and I ALWAYS  send a thank you when I receive adn post int eh thread or gallery that I did.  it is not good "craftster style"  to not be appreciative. even if teh work is less than you might send.  it may be that persons best so be thankful!!!  and if you don't have time to post pics please request the sender to!!

oh my, i always eventually post a thank you and pictures, my point was that i dont always remember right away...

and yea, i have to be organized or chaos ensues....actually, ever since google introduced tasks it has been a renaissance for me, i am accomplishing a ton more and i get everything done well ahead of time..intead of a week before i am supposed to mail (again, forgetful)

i definitely think someone should say thank you, i just dont think that everyone means offense if the thank you doesnt come right away

Here's a question:  What is the accepted etiquette for thanking someone for a package?  The day they receive?  The next day? Huh

i would say within a day, but some people dont log on everyday, so i would check their last log in

also, dont think they hated it cos they didnt log on...or PM right away

It's just the second swap in a row where the package has been received, and a few days have gone by with no response.  It just makes you not want to swap anymore if this is the result. Tongue

Make that the third swap where this has happenned.  Plus it was a multi-partner swap so THREE people didn't communicate. Tongue

I think it's rude, personally, but I have a couple of cousins who do the same thing with birthday/Christmas gifts.   Roll Eyes  Going forward, I'm thinking of making a pop quiz section to reinforce the idea that it is expected you post pics & thank the person promptly and to do otherwise will be noted in their feedback.  I might just make a note of it in the feedback anyway when people haven't posted pics in my current swaps.

That said, it is summer, and people take vacations so it is possible that even if the mail says it's received, they may not be able to log in right away.  I'd give them a few days.  I always appreciate it when people tell me they're going out of town/on vacation, but I've had a couple of swaps where someone has disappeared to pop up a week later & say they were on vacation & forgot to mention it.   Undecided
