Details of swap:

If you would like to participate, please read ALL of the information in this post thoroughly.

Though there are quite a few Craftster members who have negative feedback, angel opportunities can be hard to come by.  We've run two previous versions of this (in 2008 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284733.0) and 2011 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369832.0)), in order to provide opportunities for those members who needed to clear their negative feedback.  However, since there are so many members who still need opportunities to set their accounts in good standing, we have decided to run this swap again.  

As with the previous versions of this swap, Friends of Craftster in good swap standing and users with negative feedback (who have NOT been banned from swapping) may participate. Here's how it works:

Friends of Craftster:

As long as you are a FOC (with no negatives of your own) when you post your list, you are eligible.  Since you will not be sending in this swap, you may join even if you are at your 5 swap limit. You may only post once and once you have been chosen, your list will be moved to a locked thread for reference. Unlike most swaps, for this swap you will need to post your wishlist FIRST and THEN PM your sign-up questionnaire to jungrrl, rackycoo, AND alteredmommy. (Yes. All three.) Due to our method of tracking, this will be easiest for us. If you are found to be ineligible, your post will be removed without notice.

Remember, the more realistic your list, and the more items you include, the better your chances of getting chosen! If you are chosen, your list will be moved to a locked thread and your swapper will send you a few items from your list. The swapper will choose one large or two mediums, and then two of your small items OR the equivalent of the swap they received a negative for. When you receive, you will pm jungrrl, rackycoo, and alteredmommy so we can fix your sender's feedback, and then you will post in the gallery and include a nice thank you message to your sender. Feedback will not be entered for this swap, as FOCs will not actually be swapping and senders will be getting a negative removed from their profile.

Because this is not a regular swap, there is a chance that either you will not get chosen, or you might get flaked on after you are picked. Please note that there will be no angels for this swap. If you don't receive, though, there is no loss as you will not be sending out items to your swapper.


Users with Negative Feedback:

You do not need to send a PM to sign-up. Just PM once you've chosen a list.

Please send to one FOC per negative you've received. You do not need to clear all of your negatives during this swap, but you are allowed to clear multiple negatives by choosing multiple lists. Please choose one large or two mediums, and then two of small items from each list. If the swap you've received a negative for required a package of a significantly different size (If, for example, you did not complete a "One Tiny Thing" swap), you may contact us prior to choosing for permission to send a smaller package. If you do not contact us beforehand and send a smaller package anyway, your feedback will not be reversed.

Once you have selected a Friend of Craftster to send to, PM your questionnaire to jungrrl, rackycoo, AND alteredmommy (Yes. All three.) the relevant questionnaire below.  You MUST PM jungrrl, rackycoo, and alteredmommy each time you choose a list and each time you send. When you send your package you must purchase Delivery Confirmation if you are sending within the US. If you are sending within or between any other countries you will need to provide a scan or picture of your receipt when you send. This is not required in regular Craftster swaps, but will be required in this swap.

Once your package has been received, one negative will be changed to positive.  The previous organizer comments will remain, but we will add that you successfully completed the FOC Second Chance Wishlist swap to redeem your feedback.

If you claim someone in this swap, you will need to complete your obligations. If you do not send a package to someone that you claim you will be permanently banned from swapping. This is in line with current swap rules (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html).


All participants:

Since 2 of the 3 organizers work for Craftster, we will be easiest to contact during working hours.  During the evenings or weekends you may not receive a response right away.  We will get back to you as soon as we can.  


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
(Please put FOC Wishlist in the subject line of any PMs regarding this swap!)

I know!  Me too ;D
Now...I know that I am rather good at thinking up ideas that do not fit into the craftster code (It's not just here...it happens allot in real life too...) but his time I'm rather sure it is not my idea, it's THEIRS *points to the two empty Guinness bottles* (it's OK...It's Thanksgiving where I am now *snort*)

Anyway...the G-Men think that, after the angels are done with us, y'all could (maybe..) turn this into some kind of swap/challenge/FOC only thingy.  Anyone who was not of the chosen, could pick one of the other listers (not the Red Dwarf Lister...though I guess he could be a craftster...) and craft a fun package for them.  Everytime some one is chosen, that name would be taken off the list.  So, maybe still folks might not be chosen, but there is a better chance we all will have some fun ;D..OO and this full, unopened bottle of Guinness says you could give folks a week to take their names off the list and not play, and maybe open it that same week for other FOC who missed this sign up..or something like that.  It's hard to understand them through that thick Irish brogue...and now it is saying Drink Me!  OO I feel just like Alice ;D

There was a small flurry of activity last night! We have a sender in less than 24 hours! :o We're up to 910! lists chosen/members redeeming feedback! That's pretty good but I PMed over 1400 users to let them know about this opportunity! :o So keep telling your friends (who are FOC ;)) to post those wishlists!  

Also, if you couldn't tell, we decided to allow discussion in here amongst the wishlists. Since there's a list of the wishlists on the first page we figured it couldn't hurt. :)

It's actually 10. We got another sender right after that so I crossed out the 9... it just reads weird.

My mom used to leave Holiday gift cards for the garbage pick-up, and they would write a thank you card, signed "the G-men."  So that's what I keep thinking of.... :P

I used to work in recycling, and the garbage guys all called themselves G-men.  They said it was because they always knew what every one in all the hoods were up to though.  You can learn an amazing amount of things about people through their garbage and ally ways ;D

Will we be merging both threads or do we need to post in both sections to keep up communications?

We won't be merging both threads, so if you want to be notified if anyone posts in either, it's probably a good idea to either post in both or bookmark them.  :)

I'm not going to sign up for this very worthwhile swap, because I couldn't ever put together a list of things I'd want to receive, but I just had to stop in to say how much fun it's been reading the tiny biographies and wish lists of so many of my favourite Craftsters. (Lotsa Canadians here, eh?) I've learned new things even about people I've swapped with more than once! (Edel, you're an engineering professor? Who knew? And congratulations on the 23 lbs!)

I'm going to bookmark this swap thread as a permanent partner-stalking tool.

I'm feeling very silly about this, but I'm not entirely sure how I'm supposed to sign up... must've read the instructions like 3 times and still confused

First, select a FOC from page 1 who hasn't been selected yet and you want to craft for, then copy and paste this questionnaire in a PM to jungrrl, rackycoo, and alteredmommy with your answers. 

QUESTIONNAIRE FOR USERS WITH NEGATIVEs to fill out:
Name of swap: FOC wishlist
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:

Does your profile say you are banned from swapping?: YES/NO

Have you ever received a PM from jungrrl regarding a previous username?:

If you have ever had another username please list it here:

Who are you choosing to send to:

What is the send by date for this package? (2 weeks from today):

What items will you be sending (please copy directly from the wishlist):


I currently have negative feedback but have not been banned from swapping, and I understand that this swap was specifically formed to help people redeem feedback. I will PM jungrrl, rackycoo, & alteredmommy with Delivery Confirmation numbers or pictures of my receipt when I send. I also understand that in the event I do not complete the obligations I sign up for in this swap, I will be banned from swapping. YES/NO

I just want to say how happy I am that you are offering this opportunity. I've avoided craftster for 3 years because I felt so guilty about flaking. I don't necessarily want to swap again (although this might give me the bug...), but just to clear my conscience. So, thanks. Just gotta wait to get my questionnaire approved and I can get to it! Yay!

The person who claimed me is from SINGAPORE!  How exciting!  She was set to send on the 10th but I know it will take awhile for it to get here.  I can't wait, though, I really need a pick me up!

There will still be chances for you. :) The best thing to do is set yourself up to get Notifications on this board: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=203.0
(Hit the Notify button on the top right.) Then you'll get an email every time anyone is looking for an angel.  We will also try to hold another one of these in 2013. :)

Great packages sent, everyone!

So glad that my package arrived safely!! Also, thanks to my partner sweety28303 who posted pics in the gallery  :D

Guys, thanks for starting this swap! I am now looking forward to one more opportunity to redeem my other negative... I didn't want to risk failing here as well  :P

Just returned to Craftster after a long time away and noticed the message for this. Will be looking towards next year or the angel boards to help reverse my status. :/
