    Added a new mail art swap. This is my first mail art swap, so I'm not sure if I got the format right. If someone could take a peek, it would be much appreciated.

    once you post a swap it goes into moderation until a moderator can look at it to approve it. Don't worry, it won't get approved if the format is wrong I'm looking at it now and will PM you if there is anything missing

    I sent my personal info to a moderator a few months ago but now I'd like to host my first swap. Do I need to resubmit the info? And also, if I use Google images of say product labels (that have been shared on Pinterest, etc.), as examples for card ideas, do I need permission use them? How do you make thumbnails? I only know how to paste a link but I think a thumbnail of sample images would look more inviting to potential players.

    Hi wrenbeau, I checked the Host file and your info is not there. Please send your info to me, Kynara or HHC.

    This Sticky note HOW TO? - Want to know 'How To?' Check here first! explains how to do many things like:
    To link a picture from your gallery to a thread AND show a thumbnail of the picture in the thread
    or To Place an Image from your computer into a Post

    Any time you use another artists images, it is always a good idea to get their permission first.

    not all members here have a pinterest account. be sure that if you use online examples you're not sharing something that needs an account to see it.

    also... there are a lot of copyrighted images shared around on pinterest that shouldn't be shared... be careful what you share/post/etc. copyrighted examples aren't allowed without permission.

    I sent my info to a moderator but I haven't heard back with an "ok, go!"
    Am I cleared for takeoff? I don't have a "buddy" yet, and that might be why I haven't heard back...

    MOVED! New address on SE 9th Ave in Portland Oregon.
    Do I owe you cards or things? Tell me!! Thank you!

    Hi, I think I might have posted this question in the wrong spot. If so I apologize. I just wrote and and tried posting my first swap! It said that a moderator was looking at it.(I think) I didn't know who, or where to find the moderators so I don't know if my swap ever got to anyone or just vanished when I tried to post it as a new thread to open swaps. Could you let me know if someone has it and if so about when will I hear something or if I need to retype it all and send it to someone's email address and how I get that.
    Thanks so much for any help,
    Smidgen

    When you post your swap (all hosts, not just new ones), it does go into moderation. However, if a moderator is not available to approve it, it has to wait until one of us is on. This could even take as long as a day. There are only a few of us

    I see from the other thread you said you'd send your required personal address info to Carole, she must not have been able to stay online to take care of it. I'm online now, go ahead and PM your info to me and I can get your swap approved.

    Many thanks to Kynara for helping me with my first swap, and for the good information provided on this page! Here I go with "Animal Art Inspired by Painter Franz Marc."
