Well this certainly has been an interesting morning read with my coffee!
Personally I wouldnt' join in because I feel my pieces wouldn't hold up to the standards and pickiness of this swap, just from reading previous post. ALso with some of the statements made on other threads about quality and then read that the the hostess doesn't even wish to particapate. Makes me feel she doesn't think the skill level is here and wouldn't want our pieces. Now that may not be the point at all and maybe out of the kindness of her heart she is hosting.....But that is the feeling I get, "sure I'll host but I don't want the stuff"

I am just amazed at the rational too. As I have said before, many people have started swaps with very low post counts, and they have run smoothly and no one even questioned. You know why know one questioned? They were up front about everything and didn't "type" in a condensending fashion. Point blank they wanted to host a swap and said....any one up for a swap? an the spots were filled way before I think they even realized! Also the other new people usually posted a thread to get a feel for the group, introduced themselves and then asked would anyone be interested in.........they would then take that info and decide what they wanted to do.

I dont' buy the statement, para phrasing here, "that I wasn't sure anyone would be interested in a swap by someone who wasn't a regular."
I think that you wanted to fill spots and see what some of the work was like to find out if this was a worthy board to host swaps. Then you got snagged. People weren't happy this wasn't really a DIS board swap but space fillers. (I personally wasn't happy)

As for saying you are opening another group so everyone can join in and you don't need more epcot stuff, sure that makes sense, but again it is different than other swaps on here...Groups are open from the start and we can decide which group we want to be in...this one we couldn't be in the other group because it was filled by another board...do you see the difference? I couldn't decide if I wanted to be in group A or group B because really group A didn't exist. It had left over spots.

I wish everyone luck with this swap. I hope we can cont. swapping and everyone be happy and proud of their items and not worry about having them trashed and told straight out this is not quality stuff.

The one nice thing about the DIS and our Swaps, everyone is welcome and encouraged to try their best. And I feel everyone here does.

Just talked to my mom and she read through all this. The answer was NOOOOOO WAAAAY! Very loudly and very quick. Now I wish I was at school instead of "studying for exams".

Since there seems to be tension with this swap, should we just all agree that now is not the time for this? We can always try this again in the future. I know that mine will be "simplistic" but nice to me. I don't want to disappoint. What does everybody else think?

I would still be interested in doing the swap. It's a topic I would love to do an album on and it seems like there were enough interested people to get it started.
I understand that some folks are not wishing to participate for various reasons but that's their perogative as well.

I understand what you are saying Spinning. I have been through your questions and comments with others. I really don't want this to turn into something it wasn't meant to. And it all has been cleared up already. So I will not comment or answer your post with respect, I just wanted you to know I read and understood where you are coming from. And thanks for saying it.

For those in the swap or who want to be in the swap

Do you want to continue even though there was Drama? do you want another host? what do you want to do? I understand with everything going on that you have shall I say "thoughts" about me lol

I don't want anyone to feel forced into do something they are not comfortable.

I will be happy to host if you want me to. As you can tell from the "rules" I am very organized. I love to host and adding another swap to my calender is not a big deal to me.

I know this is an issue for some so I want to explain why so many rules. its' just easier for all to know what to expect. if you are unsure about anything in the kit all you have to do is look at the details. You don't have to email me and wait for an answer. I know when I get into scrapping and if I have email a host about something, I hate to wait for an answer (even though it might take minutes or an hour) because I'm in the mood to scrap NOW. By the time she answers who knows what mood I will be in.
that's why.

what I would do personally, is just repost the epcot swap as a new thread and that way everyone will know what's going on (minus the drama of course). just a thought before I take my nap since I'm an "oldie" (yeah, couldn't resist). maggie
