well, I just did my first one this fall, and would like to do another, but most of the current ones require that you have done 2 swaps already.  I find this a little annoying, as the few swaps listed that I'm interested in I can't even participate in, even though I've completed one satisfactorily.

you could try PM'ing the organizer..usually they are ok with allowing newbies to swap to help build their feedback..

You are probably reading the Swap ORGANIZER requirements and not the Swap PARTICIPANT requirements.  It comes first in most swap threads, it is a Craftster requirement and many people have made the same mistake.  I couldn't find any swaps going on right now that require the participants to have completed two swaps, so try reading the ones you are interested in again and I think you might find out that you are eligible to join them.  Happy swapping!

This is question 3 in the Swap FAQ

03. I want to swap but I'm a newbie and all the swaps say I have had to do one or two swaps previously.  What does this actually mean?

This doesn't mean you have to have already participated in one or two swaps.

The "one swap rule" means that while you are participating in your very first swap you are not allowed to sign up for any more until that first swap has been completed.  After that time, you are allowed to participate in up to five swaps at a time.

The "two swap rule" refers to organizing eligibility.  Before organizing any swap, a member must have participated in two full swaps.

Unless the swap specifically states that first time swappers are not allowed to join, you will be eligible to join if you have met the one month/15 posts minimum.

Please also make sure you re-read the Swap Rules as they changed on 9/21/09 (I'm not sure when in the fall you swapped).

yeah, I was reading the organizer rules, thank goodness!  It would be like not getting a job because you don't have experience, but yet can't get experience without getting a job!
Thanks for replying Smiley
