Details of swap

PostSecret is a website located at http://www.postsecret.blogspot.com
The idea behind it is to create a postcard, using images, illustrations, paintings, etc., and write or type a secret on it that you want to anonymously share with the world.

The Craftster twist is that your cards need to be creative in addition to being sent to members of our little group. Remember there is no way to guarantee this is 100% anonymous because some people may be able to trace a card back (if they are super super sleuthy!), if youd like to protect yourself as much as possible I recommend removing your location from your Craftster profile and temporarily removing your links as well (etsy, Myspace, blogs, etc.). Of course you dont have to do this!

You will be sending 10 cards.

Round 6 Gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271469.0)



The Anatomy of a Postcard

Your postcard should include at least one image and your secret, which should be written/typed out on the front of the card. Make your cards however you like-- photographs, collage, drawing, painting--or buy postcards and embellish them with your secrets.

You can write a note to the recipient on the back of the card, but that's optional.

Your postcards can all be based around the same secret, or all different. If you use the same secret for multiple cards, the visual part of the card must be different and you must phrase your secret differently. Ideally, you should really use 10 different secrets.



Questionable Content?

Some secrets are not G-rated. I don't want to restrict anyone's freedom of expression, but please realize some people may not want to be exposed to content they may find offensive.

There are many members under 18 on Craftster, and I wouldn't want anyone getting inappropriate content (sexual, violent, etc.) their parents would not approve of.

In the swap questionnaire, I have given you the opportunity to state what themes and images you would prefer not to receive. Please use this space to specify what you do NOT want to receive, the information will be given to those sending to you so they will know what not to send you.

SENDING ANY KIND OF PORNOGRAPHIC MATERIAL WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. This is a rule set for all swaps on Craftster. Basically, if you would need ID to buy it, don't put it on your postcard.



Privacy

This swap is anonymous; you won't know which postcard is coming from which Craftster member. However, the system isn't perfect. In this swap you will receive a code (like G6, for example and it may be different once your code is assigned) and you will put that assigned code on the bottom left-hand corner of the backside of your postcard (where you would put the address). Please put this on the back of your card, even if it's in an envelope.

If it would ruin your life (or someone else's life) if a fellow Craftster did some Internet detective work and figured out which secret was yours, you probably shouldn't be putting it on a postcard for the world to see. This isn't the place to admit you committed a felony or anything.

And if you are one of those people who can't possibly live without doing the detective work, please keep that information to yourself and don't ruin a fun swap for the rest of us.

If you're really worried about someone matching up the postmark on the card with your name, you could send your postcards from a town near yours, from your work, etc.

Or if you feel like being super-sneaky, you can have your cards postmarked at the North Pole:
North Pole Postmarks (http://www.christmaslettertips.com/christmas_postmarks.htm)



Shipping

There are no DC numbers for this swap, since they cannot be put on a postcard. When you send your cards, you MUST get a receipt from the post office and you MUST e-mail a scan or photo of the receipt to the organizer. Therefore, if you don't have access to a scanner or digital camera, you cannot join this swap.

You must be willing to ship internationally.

You may mail your cards in envelopes if you want them to be a little more protected.

Absolutely do not forget your code!



Receiving

Half of the fun of this swap is looking over the gallery daily to see all the secrets that have been sent. Please make sure that you have access to a scanner or camera so that you can share the postcards with the rest of us. Pictures absolutely must be posted in a timely manner!! We need to be able to see postcards that have been received.

As soon as you do receive you need to PM me and tell me the code on the back of the card so I can mark appropriate members accordingly.



Feedback

Positive feedback will be assigned when you have
  • PMd proof of sending your cards
  • Have PMd the codes from ALL the cards you have received
  • Have posted ALL of the cards you have received in the gallery



Sending Late

If something happens that prevents you from sending your cards on time, that's OK--life happens! Just PM me before the deadline, and e-mail your receipt when you send. If you don't ship by the deadline and I haven't heard from you, I will be forced to assume you're not sending and will have to leave negative feedback until you've sent (and can prove it).



Flaking

Of course we don't want flakers! We can (and will!) be keeping track of all secrets sent by the codes you will be putting on them. If you forget a code, we cannot just accept your word for it. You absolutely must remember to put your code on it or have a picture of your secret before you sent so we can match to the rec'd secret.

Please take pictures of your secrets so that if someone flakes, they can still be posted (anonymously).



Pictures

When posting your received secrets in photos, you must photograph each one individually - so that means no "group shots." A group shot has 2 or more cards in the photo. Because trying to fit 2+ cards into the picture is hard, it makes it near impossible to get a good representation of the cards. Remember, this is first and foremost a craft forum and a craft based swap. Your cards should be 100% crafty with effort noticeable and the pictures should show the hard work the secret-sender put into it (as well as their secret) since they are not able to post their pictures themselves.



Comments in the Gallery

Comments will be allowed.
However, when posting the pictures of the secrets you receive you have to hold your comments for a separate post. So that means: No comments in any posts with pictures. This is to make it easier for members not wishing to read any comments to search with the "View Images Only" option. Yes, you can post your pictures and immediately post again with your comments to your own post.

*Note: You will not receive Negative feedback for not following the above rules, however it will be reflected in the comments of your feedback that you did not follow the directions of the swap when asked.

Ya know, I'd never had any interest in doing a post-secret swap until I just looked at one of the old galleries today, and one of the cards (not even one of the standard ones) was one I could have written, and I had no idea ANYONE else ever did that! 

So now I'm hooked.

And I've already got my 10 secrets. 

Who'd have thought I had ANY secrets?

And also:  Hi Hollistercobabe!  /stalking

I feel a little rediculous for needing to have this explained, lol, 
but I didn't realize you could get a receipt for sending post cards? I though you just add a stamp and put it in the mail?

Help? lol

Hehe yes you just need a reciept for the 10 stamps if thats the way you'd like o do it, otherwise you can tak them to the counter and get a "proof of sending" for about a dollar if you'd like, but I am fine with a copy of a reciept. Don't feel ridiculous it's confusing! :)

one of my partners lives like 2 hours from me..how exciting :D
I have a very diverse group of people from all over the U.S. and other countries..so I'm sure I'll get some awesome and diverse secrets. I have an idea for some secrets but I need to get started. what do you suggest I put my secret on? will construction paper work?

I have a question, I already have nine stamps that I bought a long time ago and seeing as how i don't send letters all that often to justify buying a new book of them could I send a picture of my stamped and addressed envelopes and then use a receipt for the remaining stamps I'll have to buy?

Title: Re: PostSecret Swap Round 7 *Signups Closed*
Post by: Acadian Driftwood on December 19, 2008 07:38:24 PM
I finished mine tonight! Just in time!
Now I just hope the snow tapers off enough for me to get to the post office tomorrow...


Title: Re: PostSecret Swap Round 7 *Signups Closed*
Post by: Capt_Jordi on December 20, 2008 11:35:21 AM
tried to leave to go to the post office this morning (my stamps got lost during moving...) ... my car wouldnt start. Had 3 people looking at it no one can figure it out. Finally figured it out. My cars timing is very off (even though it shouldnt be since it has a chain instead of a belt) and my dad came by to look at it and is going to go get a trailer to get it to his house so he can tear it apart. The bad part... we will have to pull the entire engine out. And he is thinking its not even worth fixing... so yeah I will get mine mailed out asap...  *smacks head*

I'm off home for the holidays now, so I'll not be posting any more postsecrets until January 1st or 2nd - hope that's ok


Title: Re: PostSecret Swap Round 7 *Signups Closed*
Post by: whyme81687 on December 23, 2008 09:16:56 AM
Sent all my postcards yesterday I'll get you a pic of the receipt soon bsonlytoots! Also I left my scanner at school amidst all the packing that got forgotten....I know great. I can take pictures of the postcards until i get the scanner and then rescan them when i get it or I can just wait until the scanner. I dunno haven't decided yet but they will get up and I'll be back at my apartment before break ends so i will get it before I have to be back at school.


Title: Re: PostSecret Swap Round 7 *Signups Closed*
Post by: sugar-magnolia on December 23, 2008 05:36:27 PM
I sent yesterday, too, and I'll send in the receipt either tonight or tomorrow morning. :D  I can't wait to see mine appearing!!!

Post by: beki710 on December 24, 2008 02:54:41 AM
Just to let you know I'm at my parent's house over Xmas and New Year so will post any cards as soon as I get back; I suspect not too many will arrive in that period anyway judging by the state of the UK post!  :P


Title: Re: PostSecret Swap Round 7 *Signups Closed*
Post by: bsonlytoots on January 20, 2009 12:44:07 PM
OK it seems we do indeed have not one but 2 flakers! UGH!

IF YOU SENT A SECRET TO PHOENIX_FIRE OR RACHELNIKOLE, AND YOU KNOW WHICH ONE YOU SENT TO THEM (or if its the only one you havent seen posted) IT PROBABLY WILL NOT BE POSTED.

 IF YOU HAVE A PICTURE OF THE CARD AND WOULD LIKE ME TO POST YOUR SECRETS ANONYMOUSLY, YOU WILL NEED TO LOG IN TO THE EMAIL BELOW. LOOK IN THE INBOX AND I HAVE SENT INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT TO DO!

To send your secrets anonymously ...
go to yahoo.com, sign in with
USERNAME/EMAIL ADDY: [email protected]
PASSWORD: Craftster (make sure you use 'C' not 'c')
Look in the inbox for instructions!


IF YOU DID NOT SEND A CARD TO ONE OF THESE 2 SWAPPERS, DO NOT SEND YOUR SECRETS ANONYMOUSLY YET! ONLY SEND IT IF YOUR CARD WENT TO ONE OF THESE 2 SWAPPERS!


I hope all this makes sense! If you have ANY questions, ask me! Thanks!





ALSO, if you have seen all 10 of your cards posted please PM me and let me know! Thanks!

OK EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE FEEDBACK NOW, SOME OF YOU STILL HAVE NOT POSTED ALL THE CARDS YOU HAVE REC'D. IT WOULD BE NICE OF YOU TO GO AHEAD AND POST PICTURES, ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU NOW HAVE FEEDBACK! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FEEDBACK YET, PLEASE PM ME AND LET ME KNOW! THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR SECRETS EVERYONE!



ALSO, WE DO HAVE AN ANGEL COMING IN TO REPLACE THE CARDS THAT WERE NOT REC'D. I WILL BE GETTING THE CARDS AND POSTING THEM, SO YOU WILL NOT ACTUALLY REC A CARD, BUT YOU WILL GET TO SEE ONE! :) ALSO, THE SECRET SWAPPER'S IDENTITY WILL NOT BE REVEALED!!! JUST DROP A LINE OF RANDOM THANKS TO THEM HERE IN THE THREAD PLEASE! THANKS!
