2013 Swap calendar

Ok, it's time to start planning for 2013!!!
Please post in this thread if you don't wish to keep a swap or if you want to take over a swap. At your earliest convinence if you know when you want to host a swap lets get it on the board so that we don't have mass swaps going on at once. I hope to space things out a bit better this year.

Ok, here's the first amount of information.. in post #2, you will find the calendar.


Previous swap calendars
2012 Swap Calendar (with active links
2011 Swap Calendar (no active links yet)
2010 Swap Calendar (no active links yet)
2009 Swap Calendar (no active links yet)
2008 Swap Calendar (no active links yet)


Important Information:

Hostess Guidelines:

Hostessing a swap:
1. Check in on your swap at least 2-3 a week. Questions do pop up that need to be answered by the hostess… If there is a change in the requirements; please note it in the original post (OP) and bold it in a different color!
2. Respond to questions promptly.
3. Once you have received items put them somewhere safe until everything arrives.
4. If someone's items are not up to standard let them know and work with them on correcting the situation. PM them don't bring it public and cause hurt feelings. (We have not had this problem; just wanted to make the request)
5. Once you have the items; divide them out for people quickly and mail them out. Make sure you are keeping on top of this and staying in contact as you do this.
6. Please note the status of your swap in the title: Sign ups Open; Active/Progress;
Return Mail; Complete.
7. Hostesses, we ask that you contact those interested in being an angel before you open it up to others already in the swap. I know sometimes it's easier just to ask the other swappers but if someone wants to angel, let's ask them first.

** Please remember the following information from the FAQ of joining a swap**

Hostessing FAQ

I've swapped and hosted swaps on other boards. How do I host a swap here?
A: We like to get to know swappers before they become a hostess. As such, we prefer that new posters complete three swaps on time and according to guidelines before hostessing their first swap. After the completion of the required swaps (3), post on the Swap Calendar thread that you are interested in hosting and you will receive additional instructions. Each first time hostess will work with a hostess mentor on their first swap. This person is an experienced hostess who will help “coach” the new hostess through their duties and act as back up as needed. After the first successful swap is completed, you are welcome to host any future swaps that will fit on the calendar.

I don't want to participate in three swaps before I host one. Can't I just host a swap now?
A:You are free to post a swap at any time. The issue is that most swappers on our board won't sign up for a swap hosted by someone they don't know or who didn't follow the above process. We do this to protect our significant investments of time, money and creativity.

A final message from Webmaster Alex on swapping on the DIS Boards.

SWAPS

Swap FAQ thread

The list of swaps we have held this year or there has been interest in is below.. If there is a name next to the swap, the previous hostess has first dibs to host again. If the hostess wants to host, I ask that you post to this thread and let me know when is best for you to put this on the calendar. If you don’t plan on hosting, please PM me and I’ll mark it off and open it up to everyone. I would like for sign up and due dates to be given especially for January, February, March. If you are later in the calendar, you can give me ball park months (dates) if you know them. The goal is to eliminate as I said overcrowding and due dates that are falling on top of one another.

If you are hosting and a change needs to be made, we can make those changes. I know things happen, its okay. Just please post all changes to the swap calendar so that the changes can be made in the calendar for the new swappers coming onto our boards and even for the veteran swappers who are looking to see what else they want to be involved in.


Hostesses:

Thank you!

I would like to host a swap some day--I have hosted on other forums successfully but I have to say, this forum is so large that it overwhelms me. Maybe after I get a few more swaps completed, I will ask to try? Something like a small tag swap might be less complicated.

I'm sure excited about the Paper Doll swap...please don't let me miss out on this one!!!!

Something small would be a great place to start.

the forum is big but with the calendar we've really started to streamline the process.

I will keep you posted on the Paper Doll swap!

well I think we could keep it small since we've covered the Epcot storytellers already...maybe just small elements to add to pages & titles
I will start thinking about it next week and get an interest thread up after that!

Can someone enlighten me how a Tim Holtz tag differes from a regular tag? Are we talking steam punk, or using his materials?

I think the previous tag swaps were more basic in design. Tim's stuff is more over the top, inked, stained, loads of embellishments, etc.

Buffy, assuming I survive swapping out the Epcot swap, I'd love to host again in 2013. You can put me down for the kids and family and tag swaps. I'll also do the twinchies/inchies if no one else wants to -- I just don't want to be greedy. I'll take a look at my calendar this week and get you the dates.

Hi Buffy!

Can we separate holidays/special events/everyday into 2 different swaps...and have a holiday/special events and an everyday swap? I can host the holidays/special events in the summer, and the everyday swap can be up for grabs if anyone else wants to host it...

For Sports/Activities I would like to have sign ups on March 1st with a due date of May 6th.

For Holidays/Special Events I would like to have sign ups on June 14th, due on August 16th.

Thanks so much for all of your hard work keeping up with all of this!!
