I am about to have more than twenty five people in my scarf swap and I was just wondering how it would work if I get someone else to help organize? Has anyone done this before? And also, how did you decide who does what. This is my first swap and I want to make sure I do it right!

a co-organizer is just someone you can send all the info you collect to, in case you are in a bind or go missing they will have the information to continue the swap with. I believe a co-organizer also will need to have 2 swap behind their belt, but then again I am not too sure about that. You could start with asking someone in the swap if they are interested in the position.

basically its someone you can swap idea's with, share the responsibility with, you can each decide who will do what if that is needed, someone to help keep track who's sending and receiving.

It is usually easiest if you do pick someone from the swap you are organizing, because they will have a vested interest in it. You can have them do as little or as much as you wish, as long as they have all the swap info in case something happens on your end. Think of it as a little swap insurance policy.  Cheesy

when I worked on the "Amelie" swap earlier this year, we started out with 3 co-organizers and it worked brilliantly.  It was the first time to organize for 2 of the 3 of us, but the 3rd co-organizer had organized before.  Here's how we divvyed up the duties:  I collected all 24 of the swap questionnaires, selected the partners, and pm'ed the partners to start the swap.  Another co-organizer posted all of the feedback (which I didn't know how to do and was nervous about trying it!).  The 3rd co-organizer handled the reminder posts and confirmed the swappers' eligibility at the beginning.
