So I signed up for a swap, and the organizer thought it was my first one, but I participated in a Mail Art one maybe a year ago, I guess before there was swap feedback. Does that mean that this current one really counts as my first? I'm asking because I was hoping to join another swap that's signing up right now, but the rules say you can't be in more than one if it's your first time. Any help would be much appreciated!

The others count, I think. If a future organizer asks you any questions or anything, I would send them the link to the old swap that has a picture or the organizer's confirmation in the gallery or thread that you had sent. That would clear up everything quickly.

I have been having issues with this as well...I PM'ed a couple organizers from some old swaps I participated in, and have received only one response. It was fairly vague..she said she gave some people feedback, but didn't mention giving me any! How can we pose this question to Leah? I'm sure she gets a million messages a day!

I don't think that it's a problem that is out of anyone's hands. I would just keep a link handy to show to an organizer if they have any questions. If they don't believe you, you can ask that one organizer that did get back to you if she can confirm to your new organizer. This is only for the first swap that you will need feedback for, since after that you can sign up for as many as you want.
The fact is you know you were in a swap and the threads are around to prove it. Nobody should doubt you for that if you are a longtime member (2003!). But as far as organizers updating their old swaps, that may be harder to do because they may not have the records anymore, or the oranizer has long since left craftster, or any other reason. When we switched over to the new system of feedback on the profiles, everybody had this problem, but it is easy to explain away.

if you can go back throughthe thread of the old swap and find somewhere that your partner posts about receiving from you, send it to the organizer of the swap you want into. it makes life so much easier for the organizer to not have to go back and search through them all to check.
