STS (Shop The Swap) Spring Market 2021 Discussion

Okay guys…home stretch here :slight_smile:

I’ve just updated the points tally and the claims list.
If you could take a moment to check it (to make sure there are no discrepancies), that would be awesome!

Claims will be accepted through midnight EST on Sunday, May 16. So yes, you still have time to shop.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Honestly, how it’s counted confused me. But it looks like what I think is right? I appreciate your efforts!

I’d never done a STS before, so I can check it off my list! Thanks for hosting, @loves2experiment!

Haha…it can get messy pretty quickly :slight_smile:

Here’s a way to do a final count:

  • add up all the points for claims you have received (we’ll call this number x)
  • add the starting 3 loaner points to x (so we have x + 3)
  • add up all the points for claims you have made (we’ll call this number y)
  • subtract y from (x + 3)
  • if your final number is 3 points, you’re good to go. anything less than 3 points, you can expect more claims to even things out. anything more than 3 points, you need to go shopping.

okay, i need more caffeine…

scratch that…i’m overthinking things :frowning:

To get final count of points:

(3 + sum of points for claims you have received) - (sum of points for claims you have made) = final count of points

and yada, yada, yada about what to do if you have 3 points or more/less than 3 points.

We are done with claims for the swap…and there are no over/under claims to be made because every swapper is back at 3 points!!! Now we wait for the last batch of swap packages to arrive at their new homes.

Thanks for making this such an awesome round.
You guys rock! :slight_smile:

Yes, thank you. I am already looking forward to the fall swap. I need to remind myself to craft with this in mind so I have little extras made all year to add.

This is definitely one of my favourite swaps :smiley:
I participated in the very first round many, many moons ago and don’t think I’ve ever missed a round.
I love my STS peeps…they are what makes this swap a fun one to do…so thank you! I hope this has been an enjoyable swap for the newbies and returning STSers!

I hope you will be back in the future with another (or multiples) of the lovely bag you offered that I missed!
