Just browsing around, I get the feeling that there are a lot of flakers where the only result on the feedback system is that it says "in progress" for ever. It never gets changed to "negative".
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it possible to change it back from negative if the flaker follows through later on?
Maybe it should be underlined that this can be done, because maybe a bit too many people haven't heard from a flaker in maybe a month but is still unwilling to set negative feedback.

Feel free to comment on this, it was just an observation (which may ofcourse be wrong all together Roll Eyes )

If you mean a particular swap, I would contact the organizer and ask them to pick up the pace.
I always suggest that the organizer give the would-be flaker a deadline from their PM--say, a week--and if they do not respond by then, give them a negative. There's no reason to wait it out.

Some of those "in progress" notations may be from duplicate swap postings. For example, I was in the Day of the Dead swap. I have two postings from that swap. One says "positive" because my partner did receive, but the other still says "in progress" even though the swap ended long ago. Leah mentioned in a post somewhere that there was a small problem with duplicate posts and that they would be working to try and clean them all up, but I'm sure it's a huge job!

Anyway, my point is, if you see a long overdue "in progress" on someone's profile, you may want to check and see if that swap is double posted there.

I think you are probably right in alot of cases, but there are other things that can happen to.  Like I have 8 "in progress" swaps in my profile and only 2 of them are actually unfinished.  And most of the finished "in progress" swaps have been finished for quite awhile.  As far as I can see there is really nothing to make an organizer go back and fill out feedback if they really don't want to.  Two of my "in progress" swaps are because of multiple feedbacks, but none of them are because I have flaked so I think that would be a wrong assumption to make.  If you have a question you should contact the organizer of that swap that says in progress.

I tend to notice multiples, I meant more of the sort where the user in question hasn't posted a single message in maybe three months, and still the swaps say "in progress" even though the send-by-date was around the time of the persons last post.
If I was in the swap myself I'd probably make a hint or two about it atleast, but in other peoples swaps it just feels like butting in Roll Eyes
But I wanted to mention it since the feedback system is to protect future partners as well Sad
