Hello Fellow MafiaEra members,
Since last 2017s candy swap went pretty good i think its time to revive this sharing is caring practice :)
Even though i knew how long package would take to be shipped from one part of the world to the other, the time window i thought was okay at that time still was too short for some. Thats why i decided to start it even sooner. Hopefully because of that most if not all Candies will arrive around the November early December timeframe.
We are avoiding the christmas chaos ;)
So without further ado
Welcome to the third Candy Swap , THE place to swap Candy. But, why limit it to just Candy when you can swap other sweet things too? I'm talking about Candy, Cookies/Biscuits, Pastries, Chips/Crisps, Soft Drinks, anything you Desire!
Of course the purpose is to organize swapping of sweets between members from different countries so that we may all experience the sweets that another has to offer.
If you're interested, continue reading for information on when/how to register, rules, tips and links.
When to register:
- I will post an announcement in this thread stating that registrations are open.
- Registration will run for 3 weeks.
- After the 3 weeks have passed, I will post another Announcement stating that registrations are closed.
- Registration posts outside the banners will not be considered for the current swap.
Who can register:
- MafiaEra Members
- Acquaintances of our MafiaEra members ( so tell everyone about it ! )
If a MafiaEra member's acquaintance wishes to be included. The MafiaEra member will post their registration information. The MafiaEra member will be their "sponsor" and will be responsible for ensuring their acquaintance follows through with the swap.
How to register:
During this time, post the following information in the thread:
- MafiaEra username
- Country of residence
- 2 countries you would like to swap with
- Things you like ( or would like to be included )
- Things you dislike, cannot have or are allergic to
- candie flavours that are available in your region ( example, in Germany, we have plain oreos but if you have something like pumpkin spiced salted caramel mixed oreos with cream cheese flavor in your country, please bring it on!!)
- The second post in this thread is reserved to list participants/pairs for the current swap.
- After the Registration Closed Announement has been posted, I will begin pairing MafiaEra members.
- Private Messages will be sent out to members as they are paired with one another. The second post will be updated with pairs.
- I will pair members based on registration date/time and preference as best as I can. This will take around 1 Week
Eg. Poster 1 is from U.S. and wants to swap with Germany. Poster 2 is from Germany and wants to swap with China. Poster 3 is from Germany and wants to swap with U.S. Posters 1 and 3 would be paired.
- After pairing is complete, I will post another Announcement stating the date to which your packages must be shipped by.
- This date will be 3 weeks from when pairing is complete.
What to send:
- Anything that you and your partner decide, taking into account the following guidelines.
- No homemade items. For safety. I trust that MafieEra members wouldn't do anything malicious to items sent to another member, but it's better to not allow the chance.
- Sweets need to be legitimate. Sweets can be from a specialty shop as long as it is packaged properly.
- The sweets should be packaged properly. Individually wrapped or still sealed from the purchase.
How much to send:
- I suggest a minimum of $20. Anything less and it would most likely cost more than to ship it than the actual contents.
- I'll leave it up to you and your partner if you wish increase the limit.
- Last year everyone kept it under 2kg ( in order to make it not THAT expensive )
