YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE UNLESS YOU PM ME AND I ADD YOU TO THE LIST! - THE ONLY EXCEPTION WILL BE IF YOU SIGN UP THIS WEEKEND (APRIL 1st - APRIL 4th) AND HAVE PARTICIPATED IN PREVIOUS SWAPS. I WILL BE AWAY FOR THE WEEKEND AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS STILL GO WHEN I AM AWAY. STILL SEND ME A PM WITH THE QUESTIONNAIRE THOUGH.
***PLEASE! Do not claim someone while waiting for approval!*** You may claim as soon as you get confirmation from me.
Do not sign up if you are currently late in sending in the previous Ongoing ATC Swap.
You can sign up at any time during the month. Once all of your claims have been received you can request to be removed from the swap and I will issue feedback.
How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!
Try to imagine a chain. The first link is the first person whose theme list is on page 1 (Person A) – (this will be the organizer as will the last wish closing out the swap)
Now, we want to put another link in the chain. People will read that list and see if they want to make an ATC from that list. To make a claim, you would post a reply to the thread with an introduction and a theme list of your own. Then, someone else in the swap will make a claim from your list! And they'll post the same introduction with their info, and their list of themes. And so the chain is built, link by link.
When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last theme list in the chain. You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last list posted.
More about claiming:
The first part of your post is the claim you're making, and an introduction for whomever will later claim you. The introduction says
a) that you're claiming Person A (who has the most recent list);
b) what theme of ATC you're going to send them;
c) however many times you have picked someone;
d) how many of your ATCs are in transit to their destination;
e) how many of your ATCs have been received by the people you previously claimed; and
f) what country you live in.
You may also want to note allergies or anything that you would not like to receive. The second part of your post is your list of themes.
I claim Person A for a zombie ATC. This is my 3rd claim, 2 sent, 1 received.
I live in Massachusetts, USA. I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious. My themes are:
1) funny foods
2) polka dots
3) monster movies
4) The letter E
Be sure to PM the person you have claimed for their address. Or you can PM the person who claimed you and send them your address.
Friends of Craftster are allowed 10 claims at one time, others are allowed 7. If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one claim. When that claim is received you can then claim the number of times you are allowed depending on your membership status. (Become a Friend of Craftster!)
If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out. You DO NOT need a DC# for this swap, but if your ATC is not received, you will need to resend.
If you are at your limit of claims, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***
Let's keep the quality of work high! Do your best, and send something you would like to receive if you were the recipient.
If the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last claim should add to their theme list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them.
After receiving an ATC, be sure to post a picture of it in the gallery. You will not receive feedback until you do. But if you lack a camera or scanner, or are having camera/scanner troubles, that won't affect your feedback but you'll need to tell the person who has claimed you right away so that they can take a picture before sending.
Communicate! Post in the discussion thread! Send PMs whenever you send, receive, or have a question/comment. If you are having issues, please tell the organizer and the person you have claimed. When you send or receive, include both the organizer and the person who is receiving/sending in the PM.
