This was an idea I had when reading the GREAT SWAP ORGANIZER I HAVE KNOWN. Why dont we do the same thing for partners?

I think the problem with this could be if someone you swapped with comes and looks here and you didn't put them on your list, they may get their feelings hurt.

Maybe because 'great' is a broad term?
I would say a swap partner is 'great' who- communicates with me often enough that I get a feel for what they like, but doesn't stalk me (3 or 4 messages while crafting are fine, 100 is overkill). Who ships the package on time, carefully packed so it arrives in ok shape. Who obviously took time to make their best work, not just something that looks slapped together, has glue globs, or mis-spelled words, or obviously wasn't something they worked hard on. Who really thought about what I said I liked, and seemed to craft this item(s) specifically for me. And who let me know when they got their swap, whether or not they posted pictures.
'Great' to me does not mean anything extra beyond the swap, but some might think, 'the more extras, the more great the swapper'.
'Great' to someone might be over and beyond the swap, like a 1point swap and someone thinks 'great' is a knitted afghan. Totally unrealistic in a 1point swap, and yes, it IS great to get, but if I got a knitted bookmark I would think it was great and followed the 'points' of the swap.
I think its just too subjective, what constitues 'greatness'?
