This just popped into my mind, but what if us swappers would make some kind of inspirational page so your swap-partners would have an idea of who you are and what you do/dislike? In that way they could start crafting right away and it would be a complete surprise what you would get!

I tried making one as an example but it turned out very crappy. Guess I'm better with beads and scissors..

That is an AWESOME idea. There as so many times I wish I'd have something to get an idea of what my swap partner liked, without spoiling the surprise of recieving. I think it would be very easy just to make a page like yours---which is a perfect example, actually, not too long and just covers the basic like/dislikes--and include the link when you send along your swap information at sign up. Of course nobody would need to follow it word for word, but it would give you an idea of where to start.

I would definitely like this, as I usually look at people's previous posts to get an idea of their taste, and this would be much simpler!

In the thread that started as a discussion between organizers and lead to the recent changes in the swap rules, this was discussed as an idea and everyone seemed to think it would be a good idea if it was incorporated into peoples profiles.

great idea!  i checked out your page, and i can't get the scroll bar to work, and i was curious what else you were into because you liked a LOT of the same stuff i do (from the first few lines i could see!)
