Welcome to this years Hog Wild Seed Swap!! We hope to have another great year of fun, laughter, sharing, renewing old friendships and making new ones.
Below you will find the rules for this year. Whether you are a returning piggy or a new little oinker, please take the time to read and review them as there may be changes from last year.
If you would like to join this years swap, you can sign up HERE
THIS THREAD WILL BE THE OFFICIAL STARTING POINT FOR THE SWAP. MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE TOP OF THIS THREAD AND CLICK THE WATCH THIS THREAD LINK.
THIS THREAD WILL BE LOCKED UNTIL THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE SWAP, WHICH IS NOVEMBER 14th. WILL BE OPENED AND THE FUN WILL BEGIN.
The swap will officially start November 14th, 2012 and run until Midnight on December 12th, 2012. With seed packets mailed by December 20th, 2012 to me. As soon as all seeds are in and separated and reboxed to designated individuals they will be mailed out all at once. That should be no later than January 9th or 10th, 2013, if everybody has their seeds to me on time. They will go out sooner if possible.
Once the actual swapping is closed, if you have everything ready to mail to me before the 20th, that is fine. If you will be delayed a bit with your mailing to me, though, please let me know. Folks are mailing during winter and sometimes blizzards hold folks up and we want folks to be safe.
Think you missed the beginning of this swap? Don't worry! Smiling As long as there are openings, folks may jump in the swap anytime between November 14th and the close.
Are you a shy trader? New to this swap? Don't let shyness put you off. No need to feel overwhelmed either. It may seem complicated, but it's not. It's not any different than doing any other seed trade. Instead of you making just one or two trades at a time, to pack and ship out, you get to make many trades and just ship once. By the time you make one or two posts, you'll be a pro and wondered why you was ever nervous. Rolling on the floor laughing
Everybody here was a new piggy at one time or another and there are plenty of folks who will be glad to answer any questions you may have, or offer help if you need it. Feel free to ask. No question to small or too big.
