re: Should We Suspend Swaps For The Summer????
We have had about half a dozen swaps that began and then never finished. People who mailed flies did not receive any returns, swap coordinators dropped from the forum, people complained, etc.
That is why we have tried to have some measure of control over how many swaps are running at any given time and who is running them.
Any members who want to swap flies can easily contact one another using the Private System. They can agree on all details and carry on the swaps out of the public eye. This way only the individuals involved see the results. I have been involved with small private swaps several times and things went fine.
The idea of this thread was to measure the level of consensus or objection to the idea of not having swaps all summer. If it is met with overwhelming objections we will certainly reconsider this.
