Who knew tailoring was so much fun?

I have participated in a few swaps and am about to start organizing one. I have a question about checking the four requirements for allowing swap participants. I have noticed that the swap does not appear on the profile until AFTER the sign ups have ended. Does this mean the organizer has to wait until the last day of sign ups to check the status of a person who has never swapped before in case they already signed up for a swap where sign ups ended before your swap, but it wasn't added to their profile when they pm-ed you for your swap?

That was a long sentence, and I don't know if I am making myself clear, but that is my question.

I think that most organisers wait until signups are finished to put the swap in the feedback section as Pending.  But if you have newbies, you could always check their profile and see their last posts to see if they have signed on for anything else.

Is that what you meant?

that's true. Yeah that is what I meant, I mean if someone signed up for a swap I think it is nice to check their profile as soon as you get their information and let the person know you are including them, but if you check when they pm you, and they already signed up for a swap, but the organizer hasn't posted it yet, that means you have to wait until the last day of sign ups to see if they REALLY haven't signed up for anything else in the meantime.

yeah, it is a bit more work, but it's important to do.  Maybe just post that you will be posting a list of who is involved the day after signups?  Or add all but the newbies?

Lots of ways to go with this one!
