In an old forum we had a swap and you had the same partner for a whole year (Jan-Dec) and sent each other four packages within the year. One in Feb, one in May, one in September and one at the first week of December. Has anyone ever hosted a swap like that here? It requires constant checking in both with your partner and in the chat thread. But it's rewarding because you really get to know your partner during that year.

There was a Make A Friend swap awhile back -- I never participated, but I think it may have
been similar?
If I get a minute I'll try to search back....

There was also a pen pal swap but it didn't last all year, I don't think.  I don't think I'd want to have to lose an open swap slot for an entire year, personally.

There were similar swaps years ago, but I think that we stopped doing those because with the long time commitment, life would happen and people would disappear.  The make a friend is usually three months with a specific package each sendout - loads of fun!

We also have had the secret swap, where you stalk a partner - nobody but the organiser and swap mods know who you have - and you send them multiple packages while they try to guess who you are. FUN!
