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

    Please make sure that you are ready for eggs when you join this swap. It is no fun when we have to wait for incubator's to get empty.

    There have been problems in the past with people not receiving, or not informing 'us' that they have received, their eggs. Please people, make sure you post here when you receive your eggs!!

    There were a few problems with last month's swap, but for the most part, everything went well.

    Unfortunately, some people didn't hold up their end of the deal, so they won't be able to participate.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The rules
    So big rule #1 If you have mutts you will probably only get mutts
    #2 You can NOT pick a certain breed
    #3 All swappers must be signed up by November 12th
    #4 the eggs have to be in the mail on or before the 28th (since the 26th is a holiday [​IMG])
    #5 YOU MUST ACQUIRE A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER, AND SEND IT TO ME WHEN YOU SEND YOUR EGGS
    #6 Everyone will be required to send 6 eggs (you're welcome to send more)
    #7 Please package the eggs carefully. Individually wrapped and secured so they have the best chance of surviving the trip.
    #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
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The deadline is the 12th since I took a few extra days to get this set up. And yes, the september egg swap is the correct address.
