I think its great when people donate some cash and become a friend of craftster. How about we do just a general swap  but in order to qualify you must be a friend of craftster. Maybe just make like 3 small things based on what your partner likes. It would be totally random. Not only would this be like yay! I'm a friend but hopefully it would encourage some people to donate a little and become a friend of craftster. I mean come on, the lowest donation is $12, almost anyone can simply afford that.

If you can afford the postage for a swap package you can afford to join. How about if you make the swap so that people who join to get into the swap can mail out swap stuff that fits in a standard envelope - so the shipping and materials for big stuff would kind of get applied to donation to craftster? Those of us that are already "friends" will send out a "regular" sized package. A very good incentive, plus just because swap items can fit into a regular envelope it doesn't mean they aren't great.

I like that idea. Maybe they like pre-join as a non-member, then they have like 1 week to become a member. After that everyone becomes matched up. Good thinking!

I like the incentive to get people to donate.  I am constantly on here, so I donated because I would be spending the money somewhere else if I wasn't crafting or online in Craftster.

Well lets wait a little bit, I'm hoping that we can get more non-members to become interested first. Since we need to keep the numbers of members and non-members even I think we'll have to set some sort of limit at first and see how it goes. So if you are a non-member (or member) who is interested, please comment. I think the more input the better and maybe we can get the ball rolling. Thanks!

Is there any other way that we could get the " non-friends" to look at this thread to get interested? I mean, if I hadn't donated already I probably wouldn't have peeked into this one because of the title. Let them know that there is something in this for them.
