I'm late putting my two cents in but here it is, I love both the OWS and the OPS.  I would hate to see the OPS ever go to a chain format.  The OWS does have those long lists, but to be honest most people go straight to the person's pinterest to decide what to make when they make a claim.  The fact that there is no chain is really the only big difference between the two swaps.  Jexxican, I think you're a terrific organizer.  You are so easy to communicate with, very timely with feedback, and always present in the threads.  I'll be back swapping as soon as I can; maybe even in January when you start back up.

Really glad the OPS isn't disappearing! I really enjoyed the July round, but fell off because I got new job and started uni again. Would love to do the January round! When would sign-ups go up?
January the first! Or second, depending on how my NYE goes. Not a drinker or anything, but I am having my friends over and am planning on going a little over the top (for me, totally mellow for some people I'm sure) for the kids and it might drain me enough that I won't get this up until the 2nd. Probably not though. Let's plan on the first. Weeeee!

Thanks for those thoughts, gamemom.

I agree, I would hate a chain format for the OPS too.  I think that because it DOESN'T have that, it makes it stand out from the rest of the ongoing swaps.  I think it also makes more claims happen (except for times of the year with big holidays).

Enjoy your New Year's celebration, jexxican!

Thats one thing thats offputting for me with the chain-style swaps, I'm a girl of few crafts and to have the last person on the list have a ton of stuff I have no idea how to make, it kind of seems to put things at a standstill for a while =D getting to freely hunt through peoples pintrests and stalk a few people for things I'd love to make that they'd love to have is totally half the fun =D

Kinda like whack-a-mole (for a weird random reference) its fun to smack at them when they pop up randomly, if they all popped up in a predictable straight line it wouldnt be any fun XD

So there still isn't a whole lot of interest in the OPS, contrary to the feelings I was getting from all of you guys in this thread. How can we pep it up a bit? Any thoughts? What would make you, or others, want to join more?

I thought January was a great round.  I think a lot are like me and waiting for a spot to open for February's round.  As far as how to get new people to join, I don't know.  I think (unfortunately) that the fact that you aren't guaranteed to be claimed might put some people off but to be honest I love that.  I absolutely love swapping with a group of people who generously make claims not caring if it will all even out in the end.  If that's always going to be a smallish group, it doesn't bother me a bit.  Anyway; that's my two cents.

I'm waiting for a swap slot to open up... And not a craftster slot Tongue I just can't fit in more than one swap at the time with life obligations right now. But I will join either late in february or next round. I love this swap!
