It came to my attention that only a certain age group (18+) can mainly swap.
In the rules, it says ANYONE one can swap with crafty packages, matching the theme.
I understand some swaps are for everyone and every age but, how do we KNOW
that people are not going to be upset with peoples ages?

thanks!
love some feedback!

I'm pretty sure the swapping age is 16.  In order to be an organizer you have to be 18, but its 16 for swapping. 

And I suppose you don't know.  If it really bothers someone they can mention in their questionnaire or PM the organizer. 

Me personally?  I don't care how old my partner is...

rlynn is correct.  Per Craftster guidelines, you must be at least 16 years old to swap.  You must be at least 18 years old to organize a swap.  Those are our minimums, but Organizers may impose additional age criteria within their swaps, if they choose to do so.

I like to go with 16 or older.  Not to offend the younger crowd, but at 16 you're hopefully mature enough to follow a swap through to the end and make sure the package gets sent by the deadline.  I myself have had a bad experience doing a personal swap with a craftster member that was under 16, so I stick to my guns on the age restriction when swapping.

That's good because it's the site rules.  Wink  No one under 16 is allowed to swap.

I've never had any issues with my partners because I'm 17. Smiley
BUT one of the best things about turning 18 next month is how many more swaps I can participate in! Cheesy
