QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER
Please send to rockingbearranch with September ATC Swap - Join" as the subject.

*Name of Swap:  Ongoing ATC Swap - September 2016
*Craftster username:
*Email address:
*Your real name:
*Mailing address including the country (written as it would appear on the envelope):
*Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
*Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO):
*Are you a Friend of Craftster?
*What is the exact size of an ATC?
*Do you have access to a camera or scanner so you can post pictures here of what you receive? (if not, you need to tell anyone who claims you, so that they are able to take pictures before sending):
*Are you aware that if an ATC is lost in the mail, you are required to resend?
*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?
*How soon must you post pictures of the cards you receive? (Hint - It is below in red. And it is roughly half a week.):
*When sending sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer, there are four juicy pieces of information that must be included about each ATC.  What are they?  (Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):


CLAIMING
Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim. Look at the date on the calendar, it is the date that is directly 2 rows down.

You can make as many claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down.

Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:

*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

How to make a claim - A claim post should include the following information:

*The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
*Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
--Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
--Sent = anything currently in the mail.
--Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
*Your location.
*Your personal preferences.
*Your list of themes

STEP 3:
After being approved, make a claim like this! You are only claiming the person who was the last to post, for one card. You are allowed to send whatever extras you desire.

SAMPLE CLAIMS POST
Quote
I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.

5)   Your Favorite Medium

STEP 4:
Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.


STEP 5:
Make the card and mail it. PM the organizer and partner when you send or receive a card.  

Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!

STEP 6:
POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity! Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap. Please post pictures within 3 days or notify your partner that you cannot.


The Gallery is HERE!


FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received and you have posted pictures of the cards you received. If you are stuck without a space for a swap and are biting your nails waiting, just let me know and I will release you asap.

ANY QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, rockingbearranch.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

I claim noooitaremybirthday for Alphonse Elric...mostly.  Wink

1 claimed
0 sent
0 received

I'm in South Carolina, USA.
I do not care for the smell of smoke regardless of what it comes from.  no nudity (I got an ATC once of a mermaid.  she was topless, but she had stars covering her boobies.  that is fine), foul language, gore (when I say gore, I mean blood AND guts, body parts that look like they were torn off, seriously gross stuff like that.  a blood splatter is no biggie), Tessellation patterns (ok in small amounts), drug references, religious references, or political references.  I'm ok with 3D elements, but please don't make them too super thick.  They will be going in card pages in a binder, and I want them to fit in the pockets.

Most of this list can be found on my Pinterest boards, and I would just put "look at my Pinterest" to make things easier, but there are things I don't really want ATCs of, so I had to make a more specific list.  Tongue

- video games (specifically Skyrim, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Five Nights at Freddy's, Kingdom Hearts, Persona/SMT/Atlus, Super Mario Bros. 2, God of War, Alice: Madness Returns, Haunting Ground, Okami, Year Walk)
- Marilyn Manson
- The Hunger Games
- Harry Potter/Gryffindor/Daniel Radcliffe
- vampires (that includes Twilight/Edward Cullen)
- crows/ravens
- black/red/silver/grey/mint green/turquoise
- feathers
- glitter/sparkly/shiny
- Greek mythology
- Egyptian mythology/Bastet
- Halloween/Autumn/candy corn
- fantasy creatures (unicorns, pegasus, dragons, fairies, mermaids (Disney's Ariel is ok), etc.)
- my favorite characters (check my Pinterest)
- Todd McFarlane's Spawn
- movies/TV/books (check my Pinterest)
- Japan
- steampunk
- keys
- pop-up/moveable
- dogs (specifically Doberman Pincher, Dachshund, Chihuahua, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, English Bulldog puppies, Shiba Inu)
- chipmunks, bunnies, groundhogs (I used to live 2 hours from Punxsutawney, PA), otters
- Goth Talk (SNL skit)
- PewDiePie (http://www.youtube.com/user/PewDiePie)
- Cryaotic Monkey (https://www.youtube.com/user/ChaoticMonki)
- Markiplier (https://www.youtube.com/user/markiplierGAME)
- famous internet cats (Pinterest boards "Kittehs of the Interwebs", "Shironekoshiro", "Maru & Hana", "Lil Bub", "Tardar Sauce")
- Sailor Moon (I love them all, but my faves are Sailor Pluto, Sailor Saturn, Sailor Moon, Black Lady, and Mistress 9)
- Orphan Black (especially Helena)
- Weird America; make an ATC about something weird from where you're from!  live in New Jersey?  make one about the Jersey Devil legend.  Pennsylvania?  make one about Centralia.  Arizona?  make one featuring Coffee Pot Rock.  just remember; keep it tame.  see above for what I'd prefer to keep out of my ATCs.  Wink
- paper quilling
- a combination of things from this list!  Smiley
