As requested as the old thread had been running a long time I've opened a new Karma swap thread. Thanks to Fox for setting this up and running this so well for so long.
This is how it works:
What happens in a Karma Swap is that when you send out a badge, you don't have to make a direct swap - you send it out, get a Karma Point, and then you can "spend" that Karma Point on anything else that is listed.
To keep it simple, only current GGUK Brownie interest or six badges for the moment.
It means you do not have to swap something you've got for something else you want - you can send out 5 Hostess to Guider A and then get 3 First Aid from Guider B, a Cook from Guider C and a Toymaker from Guider D.
If you have 100 posts on the forum you can be 5 points in debt at any one time.
If you have fewer posts you can be 2 points in debt.
You cover your own postage, but with single/small numbers of badges especially if you tape them to something that should be OK.
Please remember to put your forum name in with your swap as people are likely to be doing similar swaps.
I've had someone ask me what to do about Karma swaps that don't arrive.
This swap relies on goodwill and also a bit on people being organised. A couple of weeks' delay is fine if life is getting on top of you. Longer if you are having a baby/moving house/jobs etc. but we'd like to know!
If you are waiting for badges and 2 weeks have gone by, please PM and (if possible) email the swapper via the boards.
If you have not heard or got a badge another week later, please contact the person again.
If it's still another week (i.e. 4 weeks) then please let me know and I'll add them to the "naughty list" and restore your points.
If it was all a misunderstanding or their cat has run off to Mongolia, but they sort it out, we'll put them back on the "nice list".
Current participants: The nice list! I've just resorted it so it's in alphabetical order, to make my life easier...
