I'm coorganizing a swap right now that has 53 people...we wanted to know what is the largest amount of people in a swap...Probably besides an ongoing swap and just swaps with regular sign ups. How would I go about finding this out?

There's no real way to find out... I can give you my best guess from working in the database though. Smiley

The "Largest Craftster ATC Swap" had 86 participants

That might have been the largest one!  It seems like superhooker organised one that was huge too, I know that one of my Christmas Stocking swaps had 60 or 70 participants.  There's been some huge ones, that's for sure!

Wow, but don't those swaps not have the tight deadlines? Just asking. I know a detective swap had 75 participants.

If 44 cent keeps growing, that will be lots of work raerae.

Geebus that's a lot of people!

You will definitely need a co organizer....and maybe the send out period should be longer for time to assign partners. Is it possible to have more than one co organizer?

They had deadlines. They actually had to send THREE packages.
