I know sometimes swapping can be overwhelming and kind of scary. Back on the other site we used to do newbie/beginner swaps. This would be for a small and people who wanted to try swapping would sign up. Maybe we could do something like this 0-5 swaps, and of course the usual requirements, would be the qualifications. No theme other than you have to new to swapping. I can’t participate but I could organize if there was interest.
Could we open up the criteria to include pairing seasoned swappers with newbies? If we promised to strictly stick to the parameters, no bonkers over the top intimidating spoilage. Just an understanding partner that’s interested in helping someone discover the joys of swapping
I love the idea of a newbie swap.
Since we don’t have that large of a swapping pool right now, maybe a seasoned swapper could invite a newbie? Or you could start an Invite a Newbie swap @Magpie ! That would be fun too!
I love the idea of pairing a newbie up with a seasoned swapper. That would be fun!
I like this idea in general and both setups specifically. I will say that when I was a newbie, I likely still would have been quite intimidated to swap with a pro, even under these guidelines. So that format may not feel like a toe-dip to all newbies.
All these ideas are great! What if we set up a poll and specifically invited newbies to express their opinions on the options?
That’s a good idea!
