Swap Rules (updated 06.03.2024)

Nice to have a point of reference for swaps.
And yay! We have swaps going on…exciting times indeed.

If I was a swapper on craftster do I still have to be a member on here for 1 month and post 15 times?

obviously late reading this, but I just noticed the clickable link now at the top of each page that says, “Open Swaps” and I am so excited to see that – what a great feature

A question. Or observation maybe… If I send as a letter internationally (from Sweden) there’s no information about where the package is going. It just has a date and says ”postage” or ”stamps”. If I send as a package there might be more info, but it’s been a while since I used this option since packages are handled with other packages and my 1 kg package could easily be squished under a 50 kg package. I was warned by a postal worker I know to be careful with that option :laughing:

To my understanding the only other way for me to be compliant is to purchase tracking, because in that case I get a larger receipt with tracking number and the adress it’s going to.

Is that the only option for me in order to follow the rules, or could I send without tracking and resend if it goes missing? Adding tracking can easily double or triple the postage, more if it’s something small/lightweight.

In this case, I would snap a quick picture of the package or letter with the receipt. That should do as proof of sending.

Thanks! I’ll do that if I can’t fit tracking in the swap budget.

This says 18 years old in 1 spot but 16 in another, which one is correct?

You have to be at least 18 to organize, but 16 to join.

Yep! What she said. 18 to organize, 16 to participate.

Awesome, thank you!

My brain immediately “that’s what she said!” :joy:

When we decided to open swaps, we added these additional guidelines about being a swap organizer. We forgot to add them to this page. They are now included in the swap organizer guidelines on the first post.

  • 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)

Man it’s been a LONG time. I joined when craftster closed but haven’t said anything cause I find the forums difficult but hope to start figuring it out so I can join in the fun again (was mlsocci74 on craftster).

Welcome! Hope you have fun in the new place. I had some difficulties using the new forums at first, too. But now I post all the time and it feels easy.
