Is it just me, or is it totally uncool to organize a round 3 of a swap without contacting the original organizer of round 1 & 2 first?
Is there some sort of etiquette rule about this? Or am I being biOtchy?

As you sew, so shall you rip. Don't fear the ripper.

no, i think it's totally rude too. it's not bitchy, it's common courtesy.

unless the original organizer flaked, in which case, you should contact whoever took it over.

I don't think I have seen this anywhere. OK, so there have been swaps in the past that are of interest again. What is the etiquette in starting a round 2,3 etc? What about a swap that happend once a year ago? My real question I guess is that some of them have funny names, that I would like to change, but the swap idea is the same. I also remember seeing once someone had an idea for a swap, which was similar to a swap that just happend, but not the same, one person said that because the second swap had mermaids--or whatever in it just like the first, it had to be a round two.

I just would be intrested to know the rules, or etiquette.

Goodbye Tucson! I will miss how everything dried so quickly!

Okay I was waiting for someone with more knowledge than me to answer you but since that hasn't happened I'll have a stab at it Tongue

I do believe that the proper etiquette in starting a second round of a swap is to PM the organiser of the first round just to ask them if this is okay (some people are very protective of their swaps! Wink). If it was a swap that was a year ago and you don't get a PM back in a few days (or the person is no longer online) I'm sure it would be fine for you to set up a second round yourself.

Can't really help you with your other question about how 'similar' things need to be in order to be a second round, personally think if you have changed the idea enough it doesn't need to be a second round, just start it as a new swap. If the swap idea is exactly the same I guess it would be a round two.

Hope I helped a little! Smiley
