Welcome to BPAL Round Robins! This is a community designed especially for round robin-style swaps of BPAL products.

Swaps are member-run, so if you think you can handle organizing one, feel free! We ask that you make any specifications for your particular swap clear (ie. US only, GC imps only, etc) in your post to avoid any confusion.

As a member of this community, you are expected to be courteous to fellow swappers and follow a few simple rules:

1. No swaplifting. This should be a given by now, but it's always good to post it explicitly in the rules. Swaplifters will be banned.

2. Keep in touch. Good communication can mean a lot when somebody thinks they might've been swaplifted. We understand life gets hectic sometimes, but all it takes is a couple of minutes to shoot off an email to someone saying you'll can't make it to the post office until next week. This includes using Delivery Confirmation on all round-robin packages you send. We want to make sure packages get where they need to go.

3. Be nice :) Treat your fellow swappers the way you'd like to be treated. After all, nobody wants to hear that their imps suck.

And here are a few guidlines to make this community run smoothly:

4. Swap organizers should give their circles a name, and tag any entries about their circle with that name. Ideally, something concisely descriptive about the circle and the name of the organizer. For example, I might run a circle for imps from the Sin and Salvation catagory, so I would tag my entries "dangerpronered sin and salvation". It may seem long, but if someone can't remember what circle they're in, this should help them find it.

5. Organizers: stay organized! Have a list of the participant's names and addresses. Make sure the package you send out has clear instructions for how you want the circle to move (who should send to whom, documentation of imps, etc.) This community is not here to coddle you (though usually we are nice and will help in any way we can). All circles are ultimately the responsibility of the organizers and participants.

This community is still starting off, so if you have any comments, questions or suggestions, feel free to email them to DangerInRed [at] gmail [dot] com. Thanks, and happy swapping!
