Swap forum

I just saw the announcement that the swap forum will be closed on Monday. Apparently I missed the drama again. Will swaps that are currently going still go? I'm signed up for the March Crafty Mama swap and the Embellished T-Shirt swap and just want to know if those are still on. Thanks!

Whoa - I missed that announcement! Man, I'll miss the crafty mama swaps

ETA: OK, I read the announcement - looks like it is temporary? I was recently part of a swap where several of us ended up sending out much more than we received. Maybe there have been similar issues with other swaps and too many mamas are losing out?

Re: Swap forum

It probably has something to do w/ redoing guidlines and such. I know some moms have gotten burned in the past (Not getting anything) Also it bites a big one when you know that the thing you got didn't meet guidlines or the minimum amount
Most of the swaps I've been in have gone great and are so much fun. Although I don't really see how they are going to make it perfect...

Re: Swap forum

Everything is put on hold for the time being. We are working on getting everything organized better so less people will get scammed. Several people were working swaps to get free stuff without sending anything, it was safer for them since the sender could not file a pp claim.

so what do we do about current swaps we're participating in? It probably doesn't matter for the one I'm in because everyone sends to another person.
