:cool:Hand-Drawn/Hand-Painted Round Robin Cards:cool:
We are a group of ATC artists who like a bit of a fun challenge and creating ATCs with more than one person!

New Players are Welcome! :D
If you'd like to join this group, PM me with the following information:
USERNAME
REAL NAME AND ADDRESS*
THEME DON'Ts
(*only shared privately with the other players)





Here is how this 3 ATC/Player Round Robin works:

Player 1 starts 3 ATCs. Player 1 finds a Player2 and mails all 3 ATCs to Player 2.
Player 2 adds to all 3 ATCs. Player 2 finds a Player 3 and mails all 3 ATCs to Player 3.
Player 3 finishes all 3 ATCs. Player 3 keeps 1 ATC, gives iTrader to Player 1 and Player 2, and mails the remaining 2 ATCs back to Player 1.
Player 1 keeps 1 ATC, gives iTrader to Player 2 and Player 3, and mails the remaining ATC to Player 2.
Player 2 gives an iTrader to Player 1 and Player 3.





This is what a set of 3 ATCs looks like at each stage:

Linda4atc was Player 1, LucyMc was Player 2 and NatashaMay was Player 3.

Jams are not a part of this thread. Jams are when player 1 starts only one card it is passed to two or three other people to work on. Then mailed back to the first person who makes good quality copies for each person who worked on their card.


The Rules please read...

All 3 ATCs must be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", straight and neatly cut.
All ATCs must be HD/HP only, using any traditional HD/HP media. (if you aren't sure, ask in the thread)
On the back of all 3 ATCs, the first player should write "AFA HD/HP RR" at the top. All players should add their their AFA username to the back of each card. (Many artists optionally include their real name, location and a very brief description of what they added)
Each ATC should be mailed in it's own protective sleeve. (An excellent way to mail sets is in a single row cut from a plastic 9 pocket page. It not only keeps all three cards neat and together, it fits perfectly and stays flat in a business size envelope.)
No random mailings of in-progress sets to the other players. You need the commitment of the next player to work on the set, before mailing to them. (e.g. next Player posts "I'll take the set" in thread)
No glitter is allowed since it can get messy for other players. Glitter pens (i.e. glitter gel pen, glitter paint pen) are acceptable.
iTraders are given, when you receive the completed ATC(s). Each players gives 1 iTrader to each of the other 2 players that worked on the set.
Wrong size cards or incorrect media could get you a neutral iTrader for sub-par artwork (http://atcsforall.com/forum/faq.php?faq=host_subpar#faq_def_subpar) and/or your cards sent back to you incomplete.
Lack of communication (e.g. not answering other players multiple PMs) about the status of any set in your possession, could result in a neutral iTrader.


Guidelines please read...

Please do your best work! Add artwork to the sets that you'd be happy to receive.
Please make sure you leave enough "space" in your composition for the other player(s) to add their artwork to the set.
Avoid white backgrounds. There are not many instances where the card would call for a white background.
The goal is to create three "identical" ATCs (give or take, it is HD/HP), and each player keeps one. You can vary things up a little, by picking different color combinations or different details.
A HD/HP collage element may be used if you are really stuck (e.g. a previous player has created a water-soluble background and you can't add to it without damaging the existing artwork), BUTIn past, players that have employed this technique, have checked in with the thread to vet their idea before adding it. (not mandatory, just a nice practice)

it must be be HD/HP on another piece of paper, neatly cut out, and securely adhered to the ATC
no collages papers, no pre-printed materials and no stamped images
it may NOT be used to eliminate or disguise another player's artwork
this collage technique should be used sparingly, as glue and different paper types can affect mediums used on the card, and can make it difficult for the next player


A color wash background is a valid start, however....

just a color wash background does not always give the next player inspiration to work with
it may be hard for others to add to it without damaging the background or already added artwork (e.g. a watersoluble medium will affect the medium you put on top)


Please refrain from using any medium, fixative, sealer, top coat or varnish that could prevent another player from adding art work to the set (e.g. you can't draw on top of a final fixative, only a workable fixative allows for that)
Altering another player's artwork: Please do not re-draw, re-color or re-shade another players artwork. Please do not add your artwork in such a way that eliminates or disguises another player's artwork.



Have fun! Enjoy the challenge. We love eye candy in this this thread, so please DO share your in-progress and completed sets in the thread for everyone to enjoy!

Tips from players

Does your added artwork give others options/inspiration to add to their artwork to the card? Have you limited the possibilities too much? (Limiting possibilities isn't always a bad thing.) This is a useful consideration for Player 1.
Does your addition have cohesiveness? Does all the artwork looks like it belongs there? Does it fit in with the story the card is telling? An artistic addition does not always have to be entirely cohesive, but when it doesn't, it still furthers the story of the card (albeit possibly in a different direction!). This may be more of a consideration for the Player 3, who in many cases "ties" the whole card together.
Does your choice of media work with the other media already on the card? Are they going to interact and make combine for some undesirable effect?
Does your color choices work with the card? Do you intend complimentary colour choices or contrasting choices? Keep in mind, not everyone has the same brands or media to work with, so sometimes choosing color can be a challenge and take a bit of experimentation (off card).
This group can sometimes be a little too challenging for new HD/HP artists. (Not to discourage you!) It'll be easier for you if you understand the basics of drawing and shading, and if you are open to drawing a variety of different themes.
Yes, sometimes it's challenge to add to what other players have started and can be a little frustrating. But a little challenge and frustration can help you grow as an artist, so hang in there! We are happy to encourage you if you are really feeling stuck, so go ahead and post your dilemma to the thread. http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/images/smilies/wacky/smile.gif We're all here to have fun, and we hope you do too!

I've got these starter sets, if anyone would like a specific set, please let me know!


Linda4atc has claimed one of the Hallowe'en sets :) (but she didn't say which one ;), so you can still get your dibs in!)
One set will go to NatashaMay, so two are still up for grabs!

Natasha, I some how missed this post in the last thread, my apologies. I was wondering why you didn't include a set of starters (you usually do). Sorry!
http://atcsforall.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1900905&postcount=397

And just for the record, yes, anyone can send me a set of starters, you don't have to ask in advance. :) I may not always be the fastest out of the gate, but I will work on them!

NatashaMay
08-01-2017, 01:54 PM
I'm here. :D Thank you MissM for taking over!

I tend to check in the thread as of late because I'm not sure if people are still following the thread and I don't want to overwhelm them with sets.

I'm always up for RR. I don't think you have any homers for me but if you have any sets left, I'll take one. Doesn't matter which.

Miss M

Awesome Natasha, one set is saved for you!

I'm also looking for a 3rd player for the 2 sets Linda2atc started.

I'm still here....haven't gotten any cards in forever...but then...haven't sent any either. Did some little beavers over a year ago that seem to have been lost...so there's that. And...am very actively involved in the Random Round Robin cards.

Miss M
08-02-2017, 06:40 PM
Hey lindagiese! Nice to see you are still around :) If you haven't actively been posting to the RR thread, then yes likely no one was mailing sets to you. I can send a starter set your way if you like.


Natasha, the steampunk cow is yours!

I'll send it now though.

Any new sets that are still available gang?

Miss M

Paradox, you are now properly on the list :)

Currently all the sets I had were mailed out earlier this week, but I imagine some of those will need thirds! Anybody else got something right now?

I've got a few more starter ideas, I just haven't had the time to draw them out yet.

Keep checking back! :D

Miss M...the two sets arrived...I'll be working on them tomorrow morn. When I joined I said I love suns and faces...suns because I love the variety on Sunday Morning on CBS. Faces because I couldn't do them...so I liked to get them from others! But...I've grown. And I can't wait to add to the cards! Thank you!

ChronicReader you just came on board as some sets got mailed out. You can start with your own starter set, or if you keep checking there will be some sets looking for a third to finish soon! :)

I'm also working on another round of starters, but they won't be ready before next week. See if we can liven up this thread a little bit?

NatashaMay
08-18-2017, 04:51 PM
I made some starters playing in Buddy Cards-a-thon (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34420&page=3)
Looking for a second player. :) Do whatever you want with it. Don't feel like you need to take an obvious route.

Miss M - would love to work on the Geisha set please! :)

I made these this weekend:
http://freespace.com.au/imagehosting/images/5181657809049128_thumb.jpg (http://freespace.com.au/imagehosting/viewer.php?file=5181657809049128.jpg) <- Framed Window Set sent to BexMadeMe

Both sets can be completed in color or left to monochrome or even B&W. You can add (please do) elements or remove them (hide under paint or other thicker mediums).

I also made a video for each to show how I started from a blank and finished one card then moved on over to making the other 2 look the same as the first. Trying to figure out how to edit the videos before posting so I'll share when I can figure that out.

Miss M
08-21-2017, 12:42 PM
Paradox, the geisha will be sent your way! :)

Lovely sets you've added! I have few questions....

Love the framed window. What would you expect two other other artists to add? I'm curious, as there isn't a lot of room left...the 2nd artist could fill in the view in the window, but what would a third add, as the whole card has been filled in?

And just confirming the tree and grass in the 2nd set are intentionally left white, yes?

If you are expecting other artists to color in your cards (i.e. like a coloring book), that's kind of new for this thread. I don't know that expectation actually allows someone to artistically add to the card? (if that's what you were intending) This isn't explicitly in the rules, but in past no one has altered someone else's image added to the card, i.e. they don't change the line work, the colors used or the image itself.

What does everyone else think?

(aside: I think coloring book cards are a neat idea, and I think would definitely have demand on this site, but I'm wondering if it's outside the scope of this thread?)

(aside: I think coloring book cards are a neat idea, and I think would definitely have demand on this site, but I'm wondering if it's outside the scope of this thread?)

Honestly I kept it them this simple just because I kept in mind "HP" meaning some sort of paint that can be used to go over the lines I have made. And no none of these were made with the intention of acting as a coloring book - that would mean these are just linearts which they are not.

I know I personally could alter these a lot with the supplies I have in the HD/HP department. You just really have to think about it with the space available. Each window, for example, can be it's own little work instead of showing a whole scene inside. And the brick pattern was added on as just an after thought so technically that can be removed to add something totally different (wood panels, siding, marble, etc).

I actually made this one a little tough to play with on purpose knowing that 2 others have yet to add work on them. >w<

If the set is too hard I can remove it from the thread but trust me I have already asked my own siblings to see if they can finish these and the feedback (examples) I got made me think if they as computer nerds can finish them then we as artists would have no problems at all.

White areas on the tree set is left blank in case someone wanted purple grass or a neon green sky... just examples lol! But yes - left blank so as not to restrict the other 2 players.

I hope that clears it up? :)

***PS - yes I agree coloring cards would be different from this thread which is why these are not made as just a coloring set!

NatashaMay

What does everyone else think?


I would probably continue with b&w theme because it wouldn't look like a cohesive piece to me, if the rest was in color. I personally wouldn't color someone else's addition to the card nor would I paint/draw over it. If the player intended for stuff to be added to their addition, I would expect it to be left blank. For example the Geisha set from MissM above missing a head. You can add a hat on already finished head or put something in a hand, if the composition allows it, but I would not paint over a dress for example to put a cat in her lap. That's just my take on it.

However, I did make a b&w turtle once and gave permission to other players to fill it with color, if they didn't want to continue the b&w theme. It turned out great in the end and the final artist colored my turtle but I felt bad about it afterwards because I felt like I didn't put enough effort in it and someone else had to finish my work, so I never did a b&w again. :)

ParadoxSketchbook, if you're ok with continuing with b&w theme, you can send me the tree set, if it hasn't been claimed yet.

There are some great sets coming along in this thread.

Natasha - the tree set is available and no I do not have any preferences for any of my set to be in certain colors or even themes! :D

Bex - if you're up to dealing with the Framed Window Set then I can send that along?

Linda4atc
08-21-2017, 03:07 PM
OKay I am going to add to this conversation... I can see and agree with both sides.

I too was wondering how the window would work for three since the wall was sketched in as well. But I think it would be a fun Buddy set.
My inclination would be to color in the sketch not leave it as a line drawing. But it is a good idea to ask first (both artists if your third). I remember very early on doing a Sand dollar that I wanted white, and it colored pink. But On my Bottle of Boos cards my inspiration had ghosts inside the bottle so I left them uncolored and actually hope they are completed in some way.

Another thing to remember if Our new hostess Miss M and ParadoxSketchbook agree..
When we started the Hand Drawn RR group it was stated that you could do your drawing on a separate paper and carefully (leaving no white background) cut it and glue it onto a card. An example was when I added a Bee to a painted Flower set. I may have also done that on the cards where the woman was walking a dog in front of a door with steps. In both cases I cover some of the previous art work to complete the composition.

Miss M
08-21-2017, 03:11 PM
I'm not trying to limit anyone's creativity, just making sure expectations are up front and understood so no one is disappointed in the end.

Personally, I have a very similar opinion to NatashaMay: I would never alter the image another artist drew/painted on the card. I wouldn't colour it in, I wouldn't paint over it, I wouldn't change the line work, I wouldn't alter the shading. I think that would be be horribly rude of me to do so. That's my personal opinion and boundary, not a group rule. For me, there is a difference between altering the card and adding to a card, and I think it's more of a challenge to not alter the card, and that's what I aim to do.

Paradox, given that you've already stated that you don't mind if anyone alters your cards, then it wouldn't be a problem in this case.

Like I said, I don't want to limit anyone's creativity. I'm just highlighting that not everyone is okay with altering images on the cards, so PLEASE ensure the originating artist is okay with an alteration BEFORE it is done.

In both cases I cover some of the previous art work to complete the composition.

I worked on both those sets Linda, and I remember them. The Bee/Flower set started out with a colour wash background and it was almost impossible to add another layer/image to it without altering that background (LOL, took me a while to puzzle out what to do, so your bee was ingenious!). The woman/dog/door was because the 2nd artist didn't this leave any "whitespace", so you kinda didn't have a choice.

But in both those instances I do remember you posted your idea to add a collage element to the thread to make sure everyone was okay with it. :)

I also think this technique should only be done by the third artist since a bit of glue or strange paper may cause some mediums to react differently.

oopsies my bad for not having posted that with the images - I edited the post to include that I do not mind them getting altered. And yes I did not add color in because I did not want to limit the other 2 players because of a color I already placed down. >w<

Miss M

Thanks for clarifying that in the post, Paradox!

That's totally fine, I just wanted to make sure you weren't disappointed if you got a black&white card back :)

Folks, I've updated the first post and feel free to give me feedback.

Just being direct: I'm not trying to pick on ParadoxSketchbook, but she did bring up a scenario I've not seen in this thread before. I thought it was important to be clear about it so that everything remains friendly. It's definitely not been common in the past for players to allow the art they added to cards be altered, so not everyone may be open to it. So I want to allow it, yet still protect those that aren't game for it, without limiting creativity. Some days it's a challenge to walk a fine line! :)

Linda4atc
08-22-2017, 11:11 PM
It all sounds good to me. :)

There is some cool art on the first page. Those three chairs just POP right out at me everytime, so pretty. And I am so looking forward to seeing the Homers on the Steampunk and Tea sets.

ParadoxSketchbook
08-23-2017, 11:58 AM
Looks good to me. I guess we all just need to be a little bit more specific when we post starters? For details such as altering and even things we don't want on that set (I don't want any blue anywhere in this set, so on).

I don't feel like I'm getting picked on. I feel proud that I was a reason to cause activity in the thread. (●ω`●)

Awesome Paradox. I like a good healthy and respectful discussion. I find I learn new things that way, and it's interesting to hear other's opinions. :)

I'm going to assume, if nothing is specified with starter sets, the first post guidelines apply by default. (just to keep things easy for people) When specifying do's and don'ts for starter sets, just keep in mind, this is a blind round-robin. Custom orders starting becoming less "blind" :)

ParadoxSketchbook
08-24-2017, 12:28 PM
Hey we won't get to discuss new things unless they are brought up! Not to mention if something gets brought up in 1 thread then the other threads also learn from it.

I agree - if nothing is specified then the original guidelines in the first post apply.

I am a tad confused on the blind round robin part though... I read the guidelines again but still lost.
Does this mean we should not be sharing the sets we have available or what we have completed from another player?
>w< This might be obvious and I'm just feeling dumb but not too sure at this time. :wubclub:

ChronicReader
08-24-2017, 02:34 PM
In the blind RR, you can share but you don't have to. Most people just say that they have mail going out and leave it at that, but others have shared before. It's kind of fun just opening up an envelope and not knowing what you're getting, though!

I think that is the Continuous Random part of that RR thread. Personally I do not mind getting an occasional random HD RR's like sending one with my Homers; but I really enjoy seeing all the stages shown in the thread. I always post pictures. Miss M what would you prefer us to do?

Miss M
08-24-2017, 03:56 PM
What I mean by "blind round-robin" is two things:
1. You have no control over what the next artist(s) will add to the card, i.e. each artist is free to add their "own mark" to the card (i.e. whatever they choose). You only find out after it's been added. So you are "blind" to what is coming next art-wise. (ergo guildelines about leaving enough room for other players)
2. Yes, you can mail sets to players without soliciting in the thread, as long as you respect the theme restrictions.

You do not have to share your sets on the thread. However, everyone here does like their eye candy, so we like it when people share and it's always welcome. I can be fun to watch the evolution of a set. Sharing does give the next artist an advance preview, but the next artist typically don't share what their idea is up-front, so it is still a mystery to the other players until it's done.

And not everyone actually shares to the thread. Some of the active players barely post at all to the thread, even to acknowledge receipt of set, but they do work on them behind the scenes. They only way you really know is by getting a finished card back or iTraders.

One of the reasons some people started sharing to the thread as some in-progress sets have disappeared (things like players poofing from the group, yet not bothering to pass on any sets they received) or sets have taken a long time to complete (people get sick, or misplace sets and find them eventually...human things) in the last couple of years, so they use it to track the sets.

Personally, I am good either way, although I do enjoy seeing at the sets posted :) If majority wishes cards posted, then we can add it as a good practice. I think it would be hard to enforce as a rule.

I know some players will not mail on sets unless they are claimed in the thread, but I think that has to do more with sets that have disappeared and they want to make sure they send it on to a player that is active. I'm fine with that too, that way people are only taking on sets they know they can complete.

Hey ChronicReader. Can I ask a favour? when you edit the pics of your sets, can you save them a little bigger size? (I'd suggest making the 88 a 150 for dimension) For the first set, the lines on my screen are so faint, I can't make out the full image.

ChronicReader
08-27-2017, 11:42 PM
Yeah I will keep that in mind. I have to shrink them to get them the right size file to upload but I guess I shrunk them a bit too much.

Miss M

You can upload a bigger file than what the upload page says. You just need to make it big enough people can have a look at it. :)

I probably won't be effected at all, and I am lucky my husband is retired CalFire Captain so he understands all the implications of the situation. But so many have lost so much.

The college I take my classes at has opened it's locker room doors for people to use the showers. The worst of it was south of me, where so many homes and lives were lost. I don't think it will get as bad as the first night, but we are expecting winds for the next 20 hours so I'm praying it doesn't get any worse.

Miss M
11-13-2017, 11:23 PM
IamWhatonearth, foxes will be headed your way. I'm a bit of a slow poke myself, so I can't really give ya a hard time about it....but you will need to finish eventually! (if I read your post right)

Miss M
11-13-2017, 11:26 PM

LOL Yes, The Elephant went out some time ago but it is well worth the wait! I love the Christmas theme you added, you are not just talented but you come up with such clever things to add.

IamWhatonearth
11-13-2017, 11:37 PM
Oooh, Miss M, can I have that starter set too? And yes, I always finish! The difference is just whether I finish in 1 week or 2 months. lol!

Miss M
11-13-2017, 11:45 PM
Sure, you can have the starter too :)

Hey, I was pretty good this time, those sets were from September! (yes, I've taken longer :embarrassed:, I'm trying to do better...)

Miss M
11-13-2017, 11:46 PM
I'll probably have few more starter sets soon, I'm working on another trade now, and then hopefully some tips-ins...

I can finish the elephant set and backpack set, MissM, if they're not claimed already.

Linda4atc
11-14-2017, 03:29 AM
I know I will love our elephant, and I was trying to think of what I could do on the backpack so Looking forward to seeing what you do with both NatashaMay.

Miss M
11-14-2017, 10:07 AM
Natasha, they are yours! :) I'll send them with the foxes card this week

Miss M
11-21-2017, 08:32 PM
lindagiese, I sent it to you last week, it should be there soon. :)

IamWhatonearth the halloween set arrived....and I just mailed an envie to BexMadeMe yesterday, darn! LOL :) Bex, I may hold it until I have something else to mail to you, if that's okay?

IamWhatonearth
11-22-2017, 01:48 AM
Glad they got there safely Miss M!

Linda4atc
11-22-2017, 01:19 PM
lindagiese, Miss M was starting artist so I sent both cards to her, and she's mailed yours. I sometimes wonder if this rule is best, because of extra time and traveling, but I just continued set rules when I started this group. Besides it gives the first artist a choice on which one to keep.

Miss M
11-22-2017, 03:35 PM
I'm not sure in the end it matters either way? If the 3rd player sends the card, they are paying for two envies. And yes, if the first player sends the card to the 2nd player, they are paying for two envies, but just not at the same time.

NatashaMay
11-24-2017, 10:12 AM
MissM, I got your mail. :) I'm excited to work on them.

I have some cards missing. Still and again. :) I guess some I won't ever get back since I contacted some of the players through pm and didn't get a reply from them (even though they're on the forum regularly) but I'm still trying my luck here, if maybe they ended up somewhere else.

Just letting you know that DeniseMDupree should maybe be put on homers only since she hasn't been on the site since Sept.

This set was sent to Tandy.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/12129/large/1_RR_84.jpg
And I still haven't gotten this Olaf set I started. LucyMc had it last. I haven't heard from her. Anyone seen it?
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/12129/medium/1_RR73.jpg
DebbaPeot said she still got the Grinch set the last time I checked but haven't heard from her since.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/12129/medium/1_RR78.jpg
Also I'm missing this flamingo and a duck, started by MissM. I know I sent it to Artkeyologist to finish but I don't know where it is now.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=180768&d=1485255716
And some fish from DeniseMDupree are missing as well. I know MissM finished them and sent them back home.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=186563&d=1501439068
I sent this to ParadoxSchetchbook but I haven't heard from her.
190148 190149
And this one was sent to LucyMc to finish by BexMadeMe.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/36508/large/1_img9660.jpg
And these two fox sets. Though I'm not too worried about them since they're more recent.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/12129/large/1_001__416_x_640_.jpg

I'm wondering though if some players are still interested in these RR's since they don't check in the thread, don't answer pm-s and we don't seem to get the cards back either.:no:

Miss M
11-26-2017, 09:37 AM
Ah, yes.....the fundamental problem in this group :)

First, I'm going to strongly recommend if a player is not posting in this thread, do not send them any more sets.

I have sent off a few reminder PMs, and I'll start figuring out what our options are, as its looking like this pattern needs to change. That means we are going to need to change some of the rules in the group.

First, I would propose we start making commitments for cards. Meaning you can't just send cards to anyone on the list anymore, they have to agree in writing to take the set, and we would remove that from the guidelines. Ideally just a quick post in the thread to accept the set, or a PM.

Set tracking....well that would still be incredibly difficult for one person to track, so everybody still needs to track the sets they work on.

And then that leads to the topic of iTraders. Which can get a little tricky, and I'm not sure how that would work and still conform to AFA guidelines. I've pinged a mod for a little guidance here.

Miss M
11-26-2017, 09:49 AM
For NatahaMay's specific queries....the one's I know about....

Fish set: yes, I did send them back to DeniseMDupree, but I've never heard anything if they were received or not. I will move her to Homers since she hasn't logged in since September.

Flamingo/duck: I had put Artkeyologist on homers when I took over the thread, since she hasn't logged in since June. I'm not sure she was every actually active in this group??? (i.e. sets I sent her have no update either)

Grinch Set: Didn't come back home yet.

Steampunk lady: Didn't come back home yet.

Girly Fox Set: the one I added the butterfly, has been received by IamWhatonearth, but she has indicated it may take her a month to work on it. (as long as there is communication, I am personally fine with this)

ChronicReader
11-26-2017, 03:18 PM
I had a fox and sent it on, but I can't remember who I sent it to. Currently I have a tree that I haven't got to yet, still debating exactly how I want to finish it.

Today I received my pumpkin/bat completed rr card, thanks MissM and IAmWhatOnEarth I love it!

Thanks Natasha for chasing up cards. I messaged LucyMc about the robins a while ago but did not hear back.

Another one I am still wondering about is the Unicorn rainbow set which I sent to ParadoxSketchbook in August.

They are yours IAmWhatOnEarth thanks

Linda4atc
11-28-2017, 06:05 PM
Miss M If there is someone you need to contact I can see if I have outside "emergency" contact info on them. A lot of people did not give me any. I will contact them for you if I do. I just felt since I said the info was for my eyes only when I collected it that I couldn't pass it on.

Note the mods may give the two weeks that they have in the MMH and PIFs. personally I think that is more stressful but I will follow any rules set. I rarely send anything out anymore without it being agreed on first. I am still willing to take sets that are stuck in limbo. (nobody is requesting)

Miss M
11-28-2017, 06:44 PM
Thanks Linda, I'll PM you.

I don't think the mods are going to impose a two week deadline, that may not make a lot of sense for this type of swap. According to FAQ, we should be able to set whatever deadline we wish, AFA just says 30 days for a 1-1 trade unless otherwise agreed to. The thing is we don't really have an expected period to complete the trades. IF we do set an official period, it'll be discussed before hand and it won't be applied retro-actively.

I'm more concerned about sets going to players who aren't active, or are on a break and forget to get put on homers, and then these sets seemingly get lost/stalled. If the player takes a little longer, but are still actively communicating, I'm okay with that.

I kinda like that this group is a little easy going, I'm not trying to make it more stressful (I don't really need more stress! ;) ) I think it's a good idea a set doesn't get mailed off unless the next player commits to taking it, and that one I'd like to change. That way if someone is too busy, they just don't commit and hopefully sets don't disappear nearly as much. And we don't have to keep a homers list :)

Linda4atc
11-28-2017, 07:27 PM
sounds good to me:)

Miss M
11-29-2017, 09:51 AM
Just a reminder, if you have sets you can't work on (for whatever reason), you can pass them on to another player, no penalty. If you aren't sure who to mail on to, you can mail them back to Linda4atc or myself...we won't ask any questions ;)

I know life can get unexpectedly busy, and if someone has received too many sets I don't want anyone feeling overwhelmed or stressed because of it, and I am happy to help out. It's all good.

NatashaMay
11-30-2017, 10:25 AM
I have homers for BexMadeMe and Linda4atc, so I'm asking you two first if either of you would like to finish this elf set that MissM started with the elf legs and I added the upper body? Let me know. :)

Howdy Folks! Just got a PM from ParadoxSketchbook that the site isn't allowing her to post to the thread after the upgrade. If you anyone else is having the same problem, please forward the details to the Mods or post them in the Upgrade Completed thread (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?34707-UpGrade-complete!-Questions) so it can be fixed. :)

Linda4atc

I added a little chick to Bex's Bunny set and hair to Miss M's Portrait starter set. Bex said she'd take that one so I'll mail that tomorrow but the bunny set is still up for grabs.

I finished the outline for the homer set of the fox and buttlerfly from Natasha and Miss M and I plan to finish that tomorrow. :)
