I don't think there needs to be a whole board, if ya know where to look.  These links should help a bit! Smiley

There's a pen pal thread which is a suuuuuper place to find people.  It's pen pals, but lots of them include that they would like to personal swap.  Here's 81 pages of swapping, pen palling goodness...  Smiley 

And if you look through the personal swap gallery threads, you can find people that have participated in one before & then ya could PM 'em:
June 2006 Gallery (still in progress!) May 2006 Gallery
April 2006 Gallery
March 2006 Gallery
A thread where we talked about Personal Swap Gallery creation

If ya see something in the regular swap galleries that ya like or if ya notice someone has the same style as ya, PM 'em.  Smiley  I've never heard of anyone being mad or unapproachable to friendly PMs... after all, who doesn't love mail?  Paper or PM!  Cheesy

Hope that helps, happy swapping!

Do more of what makes you happy.

I think that if we got rid of the classifieds area and just put in a forum for personal swaps/classifieds it would simplify our boards instead of maknig it more complicated and get rid of the need for a seperate classifieds program.  We could call it the trading post and people could post seperate threads for each thing they wanted or needed.  Also, if someone flaked in a personal swap they could note it in the post, which could be researched by someone else.

You can do this on the classified board but No one seems to go there.

maybe we could get it put into the swap faq that personal swaps can be done through the classified board?  i think that having personal swaps mixed in with the organized swaps might be a little confusing, but i definitely agree that people need to know where to get in on all the personal swaps!

I like that idea!  Please, please!!  It seems that it would help out the shy people (like me) who really don't like randomly PMing people. Smiley

Swappable at the end of August.  Woo!
