You can move your own swap threads!

This is one of those things that can be a little hard to figure out the first time you need to do it (I spent hours looking!) but very "smack your forehead eureka" once you do Smiley  Once your swap is closed to signups you will need to move it to "Active Swaps Where Sign-Up Period has Closed"; when your swap is completely finished as in everyone has sent/received and has appropriate feedback it will then need to be moved to the "Archive of Swaps that are Totally Finished"  All you need to do is scroll down to the very bottom of your swap thread and click on the MOVE TOPIC button that you see on the left.  A pop up menu will appear, just choose the appropriate board and click the Move Topic button.  Done!

We get the odd Help Desk Ticket for this one (I believe that I sent one myself long ago when I started organizing Cheesy

You should be able to move any thread you start actually! So if you start a project or question thread in the wrong place and want to move it, this is the same process.  Smiley

Did you know-posting pictures is NOT required for positive feedback? (swap rule)

We all know that pictures of what you have received are one of the funnest things about swapping but for whatever reason (no camera, no time) sometimes a swapper isn't able to post pics.   But posting pictures is NOT a requirement for Positive Feedback and in fact organizers should not hold be holding back on feedback updates for this reason.  From the Swap Guide:
Quote
When a participant's package is received, as long as that package meets the swap requirements, they get Positive Feedback.
The only requirements to receive Positive Feedback are that a package was sent (ideally on time) and that it meets the size/time requirements as outlined in the particular swap sign up.  

As a swapper please try and timely post pictures of your received package but if you are not able to it is nice let your partner know that you can't post pictures so that they can show off what they worked so hard to make you.  Organizers do feel free to note that a swapper did not post pictures in the comments section if you wish.

I think I read all there is to read about swapping, very thoroughly.... You didn't post anything yet that I didn't know! I am absolutely NOT saying that you are wasting your time posting this, because I like reading it. That way I know for sure I actually UNDERSTOOD it!  Cheesy

Swap Rule is that everyone who has signed up for a swap must post at least once in the swap thread



I was wondering about this as someone who is new to Craftster. Even if someone can't post pics shouldn't they have to at least acknowledge in the swap gallery or thread that they received their package instead of just sending their partner a personal message or notifying the organizer. If they don't it almost seems like their partner flaked on them even if the organizer gives the person feedback.
I look at a lot of the galleries and wonder sometimes why there were a certain amount of partners but not all of them have posted pics or comments that they received. It kind of makes you wonder if you run a high risk of being flaked on after you put a lot of time and money into participating in a swap.
Obviously I don't have a lot of experience yet but it is already something that I have noticed just from observation and was wondering about. Now I know that pics aren't required but just thought that acknowledgement of receipt might be.

While it's not actually required for someone to post in the gallery, it's definitely good etiquette! It's always a good idea to take pictures of what you send in a swap, just in case your partner can't or won't post photos.

As for your concern about running a high risk of being flaked on: although it does happen occasionally, Craftster actually has a very small percent of flakers vs. non-flakers in swaps. And, if you do happen to be flaked on, your organizer will post for a swap angel for you, assuring that everyone who sends out in a swap here will receive a return package.  Smiley

Thanks for letting me know. I guess when I first started getting into Craftster and relying on just looking at the boards without really researching I didn't understand the rules so I am finding this board very useful and informative. I just thought if people didn't post about their partner or their package that they never received one. Glad to know that isn't the case.
