    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.

    I will think about it. I was in last years Valentines swap and after several promises from my swap partner I never did receive anything.

    I'm sorry you got burned last year. I hate it when some ninkinpoop ruins the fun of these swaps. If anybody signs and wants the spending limit reduced, I'm sure the rules can be changed.

    My first attempted swap is a failure [​IMG] I'm glad I like the gift I bought for this swap cause it looks like I'll be keeping it.
