Count me in!  If there isn't anyone doing a team for Mystery, I'll volunteer to captain one!  I think it will be awesome having a team than encapsulates everything unknown! UFO's, cryptozoology, Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes.... oh, yeah, this is really floating my boat!  Cheesy
Team Mystery Lovers Added! Team Captain: bunny1kenobi, Geekdom: the Unknown i.e UFO's, cryptozoology, Jack the Ripper (et al), Sherlock Holmes, Scooby Doo, Nancy Drew, Stonehenge

I have been trying to shuffle thru the entire message board but I just found this today (thank you Bunny1kenobi!) and I passed that info along to Kwality570. We wanted to start a MONSTERS team. All monsters welcome, Movie monsters, Cute monsters, whatever monster madness you can think up! That is if the theme isn't already taken and if it is then I will be joining the team so Yay! still.  Wink
Team Monsters Added!  Geekdom: Monsters and Team Captains: gozer & Kwality570

Could we do a nerd games swap? Or swaps, if it's easier for teams to organise their own? Of course open to non-nerdgamers, and not compulsory for all nerdgamers - but just a nerdy swap to encourage people to show team pride and get in on a bit of inter-team unity
I'd love that!
A Nerd Games swap could definitely be a possibility.  Now do you really want them during the games, or would you like it after the games, when you are doing through withdrawl?  And I will say that if it is during the games, I would greatly appreciate another peep to organize because I think my hands will be quite full during the games.

personal swaps are always a good choice! If you craft something you are willing to part with you could always just say so in the post.
I often craft things with no intended purpose which is why I love STS so much! lol.

I really like the idea of offering up some of the crafting stuff in STS!  Or maybe the Sweat Shop Swaps...I also make stuff that I like and might not want to keep it for myself...

If there was a patch for ATC addiction, I would probably try to decorate it and mail it to someone.

Hey, just because you're on a team doesn't mean you can't craft things that fall under another team! I know I'll be doing that because I am such a broad spectrum geek!

A post-craftalong Nerd Games Swap would be great. I've always been intimidated by the non-partnered swaps, so I'm not sure if I'd participate in any STS-type Nerd Games Swap. Though offering things up during the craftalong is cool. I know jennieingram sometimes gives away items she's made in the HPC, because she's full of awesome.  Grin

Awww, thanks Abbee!  I do give away some of the things I make for the HP Craftalong.  Sometimes I make something fun, but I just *know* it was meant to belong to someone else, so I start looking for a good home for it.  If someone pops up on the thread who seems to really like it, I pass it on.  After all, what's the point of making art, if we can't share it with the world?  And honestly, I try to take my cues from knickertwist, who does all kinds of awesome things, like leave little pieces of artwork all around her town, with notes that say "Take me home! I'm free to a good home!"

You cannot add in your post about an item being up for Personal Swap.  Personal swaps aren't supported by Craftster. (bolded related text)

You are allowed to, but just as with Organized Swaps, we have to encourage you to be careful with giving your address out over the internet and please remember that neither Craftster nor the site administrators or moderators are responsible if anything happens to your package or if you do not receive a package.  No feedback is given for personal swaps, and there are no angels in cases where one partner never sends.  Personal swaps are "at your own risk." Do not advertise for personal swaps in a post. If you are available for personal swaps, please note that in your signature or indicate that in your profile. If you're interested in doing a personal swap with someone, contact them through a private message.

STS is a great idea for where to take your crafty goodness for swap. Grin  (One day I'm going to have to dive into STS...maybe this summer Cool)  Or we could have a Nerd Games raffle style swap i.e. FOC Raffle Rnd10)

You can create items for ANY Geekdom.  You do not have to stay just in your own Geekdom.  Also, your submission doesn't even have to be part of a Geekdom; it could be any item that fits the prompt.

I already have a mini Nerd Games-along in the works Cool because I know NG withdrawl will happen.

And I love that jennie is such a giving crafter.  FYI: Giveaways are completely okay since they are not a personal swap....more like a prize.  ...Speaking of prizes; I am on the hunt for prizes. Grin
