Running into Problems
Hostesses who do not return swaps within 60 days may be banned from SCS. This will be decided on a case by case basis.
Hostesses can close swaps if not enough swappers sign up. If some have signed up you need to notify them and if you have their swap in your hands, return it or swap out what you have received.
When someone signs up, if you have had problems with them before, you have the right to refuse them a spot in your swap. Please only share this info through a pm and state why you are refusing them a spot. Ex: You have been late the last two swaps you were in with me and it caused problems with sorting and mailing on time. Or if they did not send return postage and you have to wait on them to send stamps.
If you have swappers who have been late mailing in several swaps with you, you can ask them to use delivery confirmation.
The hostess should try to contact swapper at least two times a week apart, and attempt to resolve any issues before reporting to a moderator.
Contact a moderator by pm. Do not post in threads anywhere on the site if you are having a problem with a swapper. Please realize that we will do everything we can to resolve an issue.
A hostess shouldn't be creating new swaps when her current swaps are not mailing on time.
