Someone asked me to post this for her. It is something I feel definitely needs to be addressed. I have started marking "flakes" down, those are people that do not respond to me or their partner and those people will be dropped from the swap.
I am having a bit of an issue with participants in the Block Swap Adventure. I have been particpating in this group for over 2 years, and have met some wonderful people, and from almost every partner have received a block, which I absolutely love.
My issue however is with those partners who DON'T COMMUNICATE!!!
You don't have to send me an email every week letting me know what the status of my block is, but it would be nice if you acknowledged receipt of the information that Melissa takes the time to distribute, and maybe confirm exactly what you are looking for.
When I contact you I might be asking for clarification on colours for backgrounds, or if you like a particular type of fabric, like balis. I want to be able to send you the best block that I can, and without hearing back from you, I am only guessing.
I also like to hear from you when you receive the block that I sent. I always send you an email advising that it has been posted.
In the last 4 months, 3 of my partners were non-communicaters and so you got what you got, and I hope it was acceptable. This is supposed to be a fun group, but without answers to my questions, I stress that I might not be making a block that you will appreciate.
Anyway, that is my rant, so PLEASE COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTNER!!!!
