The Swap

The original swap was started by @Laylaaaface she hasn't been on in 5 years and @renmagpie resurrected it. I've made my own little tweaks to the guidelines to make it kinda my own. So...here goes it...

Buy a journal or nice, journal style notebook (A5 or 5x7 or larger - NO pocket-sized notebooks please). Each question should be written out at the top of the page. Answer the question in some detail. In other words, for most of these questions, it is not a one word or one sentence answer. Think in terms of at least a paragraph. Granted, some questions may be hard to flesh out in a paragraph (e.g., what is the current time? But feel free to answer with the time and what you're doing (or were doing) at the time). That's fine - but the majority of these should be more than a word or sentence.

Take some time and add a few bits of magpie goodies to the journal. There doesn't have to be something on every page, but scattered throughout would be great. (Magpie goodness doesn't need to be question specific.)

Because this is a very time and money intensive public swap, the following rules apply:

** No newbies (must have completed and been rated for a minimum of 20 Type 3 swaps).

** No one with any 1s in the last 3 years or 1s owed to active members that are older than 3 years.

** No 3s in the last 3 years.

** No late swaps on your dash.

** Must have been logged in to Swap-Bot within 24-hours of partners being assigned. Too often, people join swaps then disappear from the site. For this reason, in addition to checking the usual ratings and dashboard, I'll also be looking at your last log in.

** A minimum rating of 4.98 to join.

I will not be messaging to ask questions when I do the final check before assigning partners. If you have acquired a 1 or 3 rating between joining the swap and the day I assign partners; if you have not logged in within the last day; or if you have a late swap on your dash the day partners will be assigned, please be aware that you will be dropped from the swap.

In a Nutshell:

1 A5 or 5x7 (or larger) journal to 1 partner, with all 100 questions answered in paragraph form (exceptions are noted in the swap description).

The journal should be handwritten but for those that can't hand write the journal, typed is OK but please add a little extra "Magpie" to your journal.

The journal pages should be decorated throughout the journal. Typed pages should have a little more decoration.

Two weeks to sign up, 3 months to send.

The Administrivia

** Include your username and the swap name in the swap.

** Send on time. Rate promptly upon receipt. Sending late without communication warrants a 3 rating for this swap. Not rating or having to be chased for a rating will also have you banned from this group. Communicate and rate according to the Swap-Bot Rating Criteria.

** If you are going to be late sending, make sure you let your partner and me know prior to the send-by date.

** Hearts are purely at the discretion of the rater.

** If you flake, you will be removed from this group.

** Questions? DM (it's the preferred method of communication) me, I'll get back to you ASAP.

** If you sign up early, feel free to start your journals as they are not profile based questions.

Are lined notebooks okay for this swap?

StagKing 08/11/2018 #

Let me clarify, are nice lined journals okay? I have one to put to good use if so!

TamiTam55 08/15/2018 #

Lined notebooks or journals are both acceptable. As long as it meets the 5x7 size requirements and can hold 100 questions. I'm so excited for this swap. Thanks @StagKing for the question.
