Well, I know several people didnt want it to be hosted on yahoo....is there somewhere else you think is better? I personally dont think it is fair for certain people to be left out because they cant get into TP yet. Besides the fact that I dont think we will be able to meet all of the requirements of a TP swap anyways. I understand people not wanting to check a million different places, but all you would have to check is your email if it is a place like yahoo groups.

I honestly cannot think of anywhere other than yahoo. All of the previous DDCs have done it there.

Well I don't really care where we do it. I (obviously) can't host it here as I don't meet the requirements. (If someone can do it here I will step down as host and let them if thats what we decide.) But I also want everyone to be included that wants to be. So it's making more sense to me to do it on yahoo.

Any other ideas??

Yeah, sounds like the TP is out.
It seems like yahoo would be the best bet... and that's what you're leaning toward, right?

I'm definitely okay with yahoo! Everyone else?

I definately want everyone to be able to participate. I am scared of technology I don't know, but if I only need to check my email -- with yahoo -- I can do that. It's too bad the criteria for TPs here are so strict!

Hi guys,

very pleased i can take part from the UK......yahoo would be great by the way!!

One thing though....what is tigertail? We don't seem to have that in the UK....maybe we could just agree on a diameter in millimeters or something?

Why can't it be done just by PM. Do the mods read those, too?

Well, it's annoying but since I have hosted several swaps/coops in past (on The Pin, not here :-( ) I can see the necessity of it. I'm not going to be a PITA... I'll go anywhere you guys decide.

I have too, I just think that birth bead swaps should have lesser requirements.

I've gone ahead and set up a yahoo group. I've never done one before - so let's hope I got it right!

Can you please pm me your email address. So I can invite you to join the group. Once you join - PLEASE SIGN UP IN THE DATABASE!

Thank you!

I signed up too!

I put my information into the database; I'm assuming this is what I was supposed to do?

Thanks again Stacyg.

I was under the impression that we only had to give our address to the organizer. I don't want it posted in the database for everyone to see. Same with my last name and email address.

It can be any email.

I can make the database "private" where only I can see it. I'll go do that now.

Now that I've made it private - you'll need to pm your name and address w/ email Only I will be able to add, edit and view the database. Hope that is ok with everyone.

I'll have to send my address out when we are ready to ship the beads.

Please let me know if you sent me a pm and didn't get an invite to join the group. I tried to keep it all straight but you know how that is!

So far we've got 21 in the database with at least 4 more that I'm just waiting on their info.

By Monday I'll try to have a message with all the info posted on yahoo.

This is going to be so much fun!!!

Anyone still want to join -- send me a pm w/ your name, email and address!! Thanks!
