    This is the December WYGS Mystery Swap.

    ***PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT the Mystery EGG Swap that Jim runs, he still has that going as well***

    You will not know what items you are getting nor will you know your partner unless you insist on knowing. Then your partner may reveal themselves.


    Sign ups are open until 5 December 2012 at 12:00 noon EST.

    I want everybody to feel that they can join and that the items will be sent. This is why a deadline is set.

    IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU CAN GET YOUR PACKAGES OUT ON TIME, DO NOT SIGN UP!

    If you sign up for eggs, please make sure that you are ready for eggs when you join this swap. It is not possible to wait for your incubator to get empty.


    Please people, make sure you post here when you receive your swap items!!






    Disclaimer
    This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.). The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose. The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out. We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past. You must be 18 to participate.




    The rules

    #1 You can NOT pick a certain item, only a category.
    #2 All swappers must be signed up by NOON on 5 December 2012
    #3 The items have to be in the mail on or before 15 December 2012
    #4 If you are unable to send your items on time, you must contact me, or you will be banned from future swaps!
    #5 YOU MUST ACQUIRE A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER, AND PM IT TO ME WHEN YOU SEND YOUR ITEMS
    #6 Everyone will be required to send at least 6 eggs except for those sending goose, turkey, or peafowl, the min for these is 4. For quail please send at least 12 eggs. You're welcome to send more and they can be from a different category as long as 6 are from the category you signed up for. Please try to send the cleanest eggs possible.
    #7 Please package the eggs carefully. Individually bubble wrapped and secured so they have the best chance of surviving the trip. Please be sure to use enough tape on the wrap.
    #8 Due to previous problems, only active members of the BYC community are eligible to participate at my discretion
    #9 If you fail to fulfill your obligations on this or any other swap, you will be unable to participate in future swaps
    #10 YOU MAY PARTICIPATE UP TO 2 TIMES THIS MONTH - NO PM IS NECESSARY.
    #11 ALL ITEMS/COMBINATION OF ITEMS IN 1 SWAP MUST HAVE A MINIMUM VALUE OF $15. IF YOU NEED TO ADD SEVERAL ITEMS FROM THE SAME CATEGORY TO GET THIS VALUE PLEASE DO SO. ADDITIONAL ITEMS FROM OTHER CATEGORIES MAY BE ADDED AS "BONUS" ITEMS AT SENDER'S DISCRETION.

    Signups close on December 5th and Items need to be sent on the 15th of December since I want everyone to get there items in time for Christmas.

    I also added a poll for peoples opionon on the catergory's if you like them or if you think others should be added. This is so everyone's opionon is private and there are no arguments.
