Swap name: I'm Sherlock Holmes, b**ch - Newbie swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Brena80 - superorganizer and all around goofball
Sign-up date range: 8/15/05 - 08/22/05
Date to send item by: 9/15/05

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? If there are people willing to send, sure

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Four conditions

•1• You need to have been a Craftster member for at least 1 month to participate in a swap. This includes organizing or participating in a swap.

•2• You need to have posted at least 15 times on Craftster.

•3• If you have never swapped on Craftster before, you can only sign up for ONE swap to start out with. Then when you complete that swap and get Positive Feedback, you can sign up for as many others as you want. (But don't sign up for more than you can handle!)

•4• If you've neglected to fulfill your part in a past swap, you're not allowed to join any more until you fulfill those obligations. (This information is recorded in your Profile.)

These rules are for the protection of everyone. The majority of people who swap are totally trustworthy and conscientious swappers. But after months of swapping, these rules have come about in an effort to make sure it all goes as smoothly as possible.

Details of swap:

This is a swap for you newbies out there to perfect your detective skills.   A detailed questionaire will be filled out and you can stalk the posts of your suspect.  Please send 2 small surprise items.  I will be updating feedback as soon as your partner lets me know that they recieved.  Also, please feel free to ask me tons of questions.   Anything... nothing is too basic.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

You can be any level to participate, but this swap was designed with newbie's in mind.   It's a smaller swap with quick feedback and help if needed.

But everyone can take part in the fun!

I'm so excited about my first swap!

I feel bad for the person sleuthing me (hi, Littlest Ninja!), because I don't have that many posts... but I've just read them over and I think there's at least *some* info about me to be had. Sorry -- no blog or LJ for me, so you'll just have to go by posts and the questionnaire (and, of course, asking me questions if need be... that's allowed, right?)

And maybe I'll post a few more things today to give you more ideas. Wink

I also kind of feel bad for my sleuther ('sup brashbroad), because I kinda dabble a little bit in everything and because I'm kind of a boring person.  Ask me anything you want, though!

Ok!   I'm going to be PM-ing everyone tonight asking how they are doing.   If you're going to be late, please don't be afraid to tell me.   If I don't hear from you by Tuesday night, then I will be asking your partner to hold off until I do hear from you.

Also... if you live outside of US or are sending outside the US you do not have to get a DC number.   From what I understand, they are ridiculously expensive.   

And remember... send date is this Thursday and please send 2 small items!
