Can we implement a calendar for craftsters traveling so they could stay with a craftster who adopts them? The traveler and the adopter can read the others information and pm to see if they would be compatible. They could make a small gift for the host in lieu of paying them. Then you could post the images.

I would like to leave it open for all craftsters, even though I like to bug them to become a friend.

You can't have an adopt a craftster craftalong, because you aren't actually making anything, and on the off topic chit chat is not the place for any ...along.

Is this too much work? I'm out of work, and would love to work for you maintaining schedules. Grin Grin Grin Grin

sounds like a nice idea, i guess people would have to post where they're going and other FOC's willing to take them could pm?
very lovely way of spreading the love andd saving the pennies (or cents, yen, euro's... Wink)

I think this idea should be posted in "what do you want changed or added".  I'm not sure a mod will be reading it in chit-chat.

You are right. I will see if I can get the moderator to move it. I thought this was a good place though as this thread is a little more active.

I like the idea, what a great way to meet new people/Craftsters and save some money when traveling.

I just found out I could move this, so pick the right thread for me please Ruby as I am not sure I've seen the 'added to craftster area, or are you talking about adding it to the what we want to see added/changed? If so, I could just post this same info there? And link to it after we get it there? I'm still new, so please advise.

At least the 44 cent swap got adopted. Yipee.

Hm, I think both places would be good. The "What do you want to have changed or added to craftster" gets very quick answers from the mods, but I have no idea if anyone but the mods read it Smiley I guess so, because if you don't block it from your replies page, every time someone posts there you see it.

The other place is when you open the community menu, choose "Craftster News and Discussions" and then "suggest new boards and features". The advantage is that it's open for everyone, not only FOCs. The disadvantage is that this board gets very little attention.

I don't know if the mods will want to see some support for this idea before they consider it, but you could ask them that Smiley So if they say they want to see some reactions first, you can still put your idea in the suggest new boards and features.

Sorry for not having better advice, I'm pretty clueless on this as well Smiley

Yes, I agree that the News and Discussion doesn't get a lot of hits. What I will do is copy and paste the original post, and link back to here, on the what do you want added post, so mods can follow the interest. Thanks a lot Ruby. Brainstorming is the way to go.
