Hi  I'm sorry if these have been asked before but in the run up to organising a swap for the first time I have been reading all the info posts and have a couple of questions.

Firstly if somebody needs an angel but after posting a request nobody volunteers what happens?  (Though knowing how awesome craftsters are i'm sure it does not happen often or at all) also how long do you leave the request up for?

Secondl (or thirdly if you count the above as two ...sorry!) If someone paid to be a FOC last month) and then decided to angel for a swap (not to redeem a negative (again Craftsters = awesome!) Would the FOC status overlap their paid subscription and run out in 12 months or would they have the remainder of the paid subscription and then the earnt one so they are FOC for the next 23 months?

Hope this makes sense i am in hospital and drugged up on strong painkillers!

Angel opportunities are snapped up pretty quickly as there are always more people looking than what comes up.  The longest I've seen one stay open is about a week but if an angel request goes unfulfilled after a couple of weeks it would be best to open a Help Desk ticket and have the swap mods help you out.

For lovely angels who are eligible for FOC once their package is received, the 1 year period starts as soon as a swap mod updates the FOC-no matter how much time is left in their current FOC subscription.  So if you had 3 months left on your FOC, once updated you would be at one year again (those 3 months would not be added on)

No problem, its great that you are doing research before organizing!  Honestly though flaking doesn't happen often if you look at how many swaps/swappers we have on Craftster, although no one likes to have it happen in their swaps ever.  It helps if you keep an eye on communication as organizer-make sure everyone posts in the thread when they sign up (Craftster rule!) and checks in however often you set in your swap signup.  Let your swappers know to contact you before sending if they haven't had recent communication from their partner/partner hasn't posted in the thread for sometime.  If you ever have any questions or concerns once your swap has started, please don't hesitate to open a Help Desk ticket and one of the swap mods will help you out Smiley
