BIG NEWS! OPEN SWAPS starting Sept 1,2021

After much consideration, the swap mods are no longer going to have swap voting or rounds. That’s right! You can organizer a swap any time you wish…BUT there are guidelines that must be followed. In order to organize a swap you must:

  • Meet the requirements of a swap organizer
  • You must message @gozer, @loves2experiment and @kittykill before opening a new swap. The reason for this is so that you can be assigned a swap mod liaison and have a spreadsheet set up for your new swap.
  • Verify that the members signing up for the swap are in good standing (this can be done once you have access to the spreadsheets)

This is a big day for us! There may be a few wrinkles we will need to iron out, so if something is a little funky, please be kind and work with us.

Swap Rules: Swap Rules (updated 07/11/2021)

As before, you can start with swap ideas and generate a spark about the swap. Make sure you use the tag NEW SWAP IDEAS.

When you start your swap, use the tag SWAP SIGN UP and when sign ups are over, change the tag to SWAP.

This is awesome!! I was just toying with the thought that maybe a Hygge swap would be nice, as we go into the fall season where I live. Swap something that is hygge, maybe partners describe what they think of as hygge (could be pillows, mittens, plants, foods, favorite movies, favorite nature things, etc.). Still marinating but my timing for this thought may be kismet.
