Winter Swap 2012??
 
Hi all! I was wondering how many of you would be interested in joining for a Winter swap here (non denominational).

I do not think I can run it on LHC this year, due to server issues. It is just too hard to work with when I can't rely on getting in.

SO, do we have any takers for a Beauty Bottle Holiday Swap??

I am thinking that, due to the nature of this site, we can make an anything goes type thing where all sorts of beauty products, and hair stuff, can be listed in the wish lists.

Because of the late date, this swap will run until February

Who's in?!

Edited to add. The rules I have come up with for LHC swaps will apply here, So use your LHC rep if you have it. That means LHC screen name, minimum 100 posts, also iTrader, and time on LHC.
Members who have good rep here by meeting the 100 post minimum are also allowed to join.

I will be pairing member of long standing/rep with other long standing members of similar rep. Proven swappers also go in this pairing list. Newbies who have not participated in a swap will be matched with like members. I know it may seem unfair, or a risk, but this is your chance to prove yourself in a swap, and build rep for future swaps.

I'm in - Thanks for taking this on Calaelen. I'll come back and edit with my list once I think on it for a bit.

ETA - Screen name is the same as LHC and my stats are in my sig.

ETA Again - I need to ship within the U.S.

I'd love to participate in this. Will know for sure tomorrow once I find out what the total of my nail polish order (from OPI GO) is. Starting to get excited for this though.

I would be interested.

I would love too, but I do have a question though.
I wanted to join the winter swap on LHC, and I understand that it is hard to organize a swap with the board going down all the time.

I have joined before in last years winter and summer swap.
you decided for some new rules where newbies had to have a certain amount of posts and/or participated in swaps to get a reliable partner. how would this work?

Ishje, I think the winter swap that would have been held on LHC is being held here since Calaelen has trouble accessing LHC.

I don't know if this rule would apply in this case since quite a few of long-standing LHC members are relative newbies here. Calaelen will probably have more info about it.

I'd like to join, but I'm weary after what happened on LHC with the summer swap...I'll have to think about it...of see what the rules are.

well, I do recognize some of the names from LHC, but what would be ideal is if people can get their LHC stats for me. This includes LHC screen name, post count, iTrader, and time on LHC.

As to people I do not recognize, who cannot provide LHC stats, they will have to be excluded, unless, they have adequate post count and rep here. 100 posts minimum.

That is all I can do, and I am sorry to have had to get so strict, but having been thrice burned in previous swaps, it has shown me I had to make changes.

Hope this helps you decide.

Calaelen, my LHC screen name is the same as my screen name here and my LHC stats are in my sig. But, I'm repeating them below for your convenience.

Screen name: biogirl87
Post count: 100+
Time on LHC: since mid September 2012
iTrader: haven't traded with anyone on LHC (couldn't really trade with anyone as I joined after the Autumn swap had already started or didn't have enough posts when the Autumn swap started)

I'd love to participate in this and if it'll indeed run until February, I'll able to. Calaelen, I'd really appreciate it if you could pair me with someone who joined here in early October.

joflakes November 13th, 2012 06:55 PM

I would be interested but I've not taken part in a swap on LHC before. My stats are in my signature. I hope I qualify!

What do I need to do? =)
