I kinda wanna redo my whole list, lol. If the kraken counts as a cryptid, that definitely belongs on my list too! Ah well; when I get a partner, let’s talk! XD

I wanna redo mine too! I didn’t realize how many unknown cryptid y’all would turn me onto!

Me too! Though I’m just adding to the list - I’d still be happy with any of my original ideas.

Oh yeah, my original short list is still totally fine, but I’m finding more I like! XD

I agree! I pretty much want any and everything at this point :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I just now looked up cryptids around upstate South Carolina. I’ve only been living here for a year, and I still don’t know a lot about my area. However, Thunderbirds I totally would add to my list!

Just a thought for all y’all saying you want to add more to your list… why can’t you? We haven’t been given partners yet, and you can edit messages… just sayin’… :woman_shrugging:

Oh, I probably will once we have partners. We just can’t go edit the originals that were sent to gozer 'cause we’d drive her friggin crazy with tiny one line update messages. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Oh, I didn’t realize it would do that! Thanks for letting me know…

I guess I don’t know that for sure, but I assumed. I’m in a different Discourse-based forum and I get message edit notifications there.

When you edit the message, it pops to the top of her messages again.

BUT if she’s been playing with partners, it does make it challenging. Also, it’s a little taboo. It would probably be best to message an ‘Addendum’ after partners are given.

[Just my opinion, as a previous organizer. I would find this to be undesirable.]

Yeah, I’m just planning to chat with my eventual partner. Again, everything on my current list is still totally fair game; I’d just widen the field! XD

Since moving to New Orleans, I have heard a lot of wonderful spooky stories but last year I heard this song and learned about the parlangua, a half alligator, half human swamp monster. It’s pretty nifty.

I like the idea of discussing your new list with your partner. Not because of the message issue, but I like the idea of people communicating. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Check out this cutey, the Dover Demon (scroll down the page).
I sadly haven’t any time to swap but so happy this is getting lots of love. The gallery is going to be amazing!

@gozer, I agree! Chatting with your partner is one of the best things about swaps. I am THRILLED by all the participants in this swap. It is such a fun theme with endless possibilities! Thank you for organizing. You are the best!

I’m so glad you typed out the spelling, because I would not have been able to get one without the other.

And then, he sang:

“…he’s got your brother, now he’s got your Pa.”

Oh.Dang. Note to self, reconsider Louisiana swamp trip…
