The flytyingforum definitely has more swaps than we do. To go along with that they have more problems as clearly stated all over their site! For the past 8 months it's been so bad that they have made a list of banned swappers , are following all posts made by the swapmeister in private as well as setting guidelines far more stringent then ours to try and control these problems. You can't host a swap with them unless you have participated in a minimum of 3 swaps and you must supply phone number , address etc to the administration so they can attempt to curtail the problems they are having ! That's what happens when you try to run to many things at one time with no controls. I believe what our forum is doing now taking one swap at a time and and setting guidelines for when each swap shall start and end is a step in the right direction! I also believe splitting up the swapmeister duties between several qualified people(as set forth in the swap guidelines ) is also a positive step. There will always be some problems wherever you go it's how they are handled that determines the outcome of all swaps!
Pocono and mcnerney like this.

I had ten times rather swap there than here for reasons that I will not go into. I could really elaborate on why I feel this way, but it wouldn't amount to a hill of beans.
