Guide Interest Badge Swapping Thread


Veteran (100+ posts)
Okay so you list what you have to swap and what you'd like in return, like I'm going to do in my next post.
At the bottom of your post you need to put whether you're happy to Karma Swap, which means basically you can ask for something from someone without sending them something as a direct swap. You would then be -1 Karma Points and the person who sent you the badge would be +1 points. You can spend your points on anyone's list if they're participating in the Karma Swap. If you only want to do direct swaps, please post that at the bottom of your list so people know not to bother you with Karma Swaps.

If you have posted less than 100 posts you may go down to -2 on Karma Points,
if you have between 100 and 1000 posts you may go down to -5,
and over 1000 posts down to -10 on Karma Points
, you can go upto as many as you want, but try to keep it as close to 0 as you can.
I am aware that some people have exceeded this limit at the moment, and I am trying to get that sorted out. Please don't swap with someone if it will make your points go below these limits.

Please edit your original list after each swap rather than posting a new one, so we don't have out of date lists on the thread confusing people.

If you do a direct swap, I don't need to know, you just update your own lists, if you do a swap that means someone needs Karma Points altering, post on here and I will alter the list in this post.

If any of those instructions don't make sense, let me know and I'll alter them.

<100 posts (allowed to be -2)
mustbemad -1 show list

100+posts (allowed to be -5)
Caterpillar 0 show list
Ems +4 show list
Golly 0 show list
michelle43uk 0 show list
shazzab 0

1000+ posts (allowed to be -10)
FionainKL 0 show list
Hilary +2 show list
Marie +8 show list
Popcorn -14 show list (this member is currently suspended?)
Smartie +8 show list
StarOwl -5
show list

Magpie12 show list
Smiley show list
show list

StarOwl's old unit are on -2 points (I'll sort that out next time I'm down there, don't want to muddle them up with new unit)

Once you add your list of badges you'll be added to one of the lists above, starting at 0 if you're doing karma swaps. x

And we're off....

Popcorn is sending me 11 Confectioner, and I'm sending her 9 World Cultures so she's now +2 and I'm now -2, I have adjusted the original post and my list. x


Veteran (100+ posts)
popcorn can you put on the bottom of your post that you're doing direct and karma swaps please, and it would also be helpful to keep track of your points there too so people don't have to refer to the original post to see how many points you have. Have a look at mine if you're not sure.


Veteran (100+ posts)
Thanks popcorn for adding that info to your post, hoping to make it nice and easy for people to understand what this is all about! :D

Smiley, please may I buy the Right to Live in Peace badges from you?

PM me details of how much and where to send a cheque and I'll get it sorted this week.

Hi folks, I'm back!
I have updated the original post with what people have posted.
It seems to make popcorn on -14 though and marie on +15 which seems a lot, so not sure if I've got that right?


Veteran (100+ posts)

I have some badges I would like to do straight swaps for.

I have:

1 x Chocolate
4 x First Aid
6 x World Guiding

I am looking for any of the following Right Now badges;

The right to:

Be happy (Pink)
Learn (Blue)
Live in Peace (Orange)
Be heard (Purple)

I realise that the right now badges cost more than the normal interest badges so would be willing to swap 3 interest badges for 2 right now badges.
