PostPosted: 0    Post subject: Newbie Swap! G1 made into G4! ***LEAVE FEEDBACK***

I know I have seen a few other newer customizers around like myself lately, and thought it might be fun to do a swap that is newbie friendly. I am going to go ahead and say now that I would prefer it if someone who is more experienced in running swaps handle the signs ups and everything, sometimes my life can get hectic with therapies, doctors appointments and other stuff with my son and I simply have no experience running something like this. So if you would be interested in setting it up speak up please =D

I thought it would be fun to start with something simple. What about a swap of G1 custom reproductions on G4 ponies? What does everyone think?


So jupiternwndrlnd has offered to help me with this Smile
we will see how much interest we get, then hopefully send in for approval!

I'm thinking that at least one reference would be good (this can be ebay, TP or here) and one completed custom under your belt.
How about instead of a set amount of time as a member you have to have made at least 20 meaningful posts on the forums?

Update: we have been approved to start signups!
===============================
Rules and Signups Happy

Participants will be asked to provide a link to 1 reference (this can be Arena feedback, TP feedback or ebay feedback) via PM to jupiternwndrlnd aka jupi

Please also provide a photo of the custom you have completed. (you only need to have completed one custom to participate Smile )

Participants should be Arena members with at least 20 meaningful posts (ie, more than one word replies)

per Arena rules, participants must be over the age of 16.

Along with your above information,
Please also include:
Your Mailing Address
Your email address we can reach you at, should you not be able to get on to the Arena
If your able to ship overseas.
and most importantly
A list of 5 of your favorite G1 ponies!
(keep in mind here that having Apple Jack on your list might make things a little too easy on your partner LMAO )

Signups open until July 1
(or until we have 25 participants)
Check In date is August 1
Ship completed customs by Sept 1

We will ask that you "check in" with jupi by sending a WIP pic half way through the work time (Aug 1)
also, please provide a final photo to jupi prior to shipping!

Shipping early will be aloud, but please don't rush to finish. Take your time and have fun!! Smile

This will be a secret swap, so no telling who you are making for Smile

Ship on time,(shipping by Sept 1 should give us around 2 months) keep us informed, and please don't go MIA, we don't want anyone to be disappointed by not receiving a custom!

Please don't signup if you can't commit to meeting the deadline.

I was really interested in the possible geek swap because of its subject matter, but I did worry about being a newbie.

I would love to participate under the watchful eye of someone more experienced. This swap would be great - it would allow us to talk, kvetch about problems, practice, and be with others at our skill level.

I also like the idea of a G1 to G4 reproductions - perhaps we would pick one we'd like to see and our partner could pick from there?

So glad to see some interest. I wouldn't worry too much cloverofmist, I have no feedback yet sadly and this would be intended for new people with little to none. Hopefully someone will be willing to run this for us.

I know I've seen an average of 5 feedback. So I wouldn't mind a newbie swap. Admittedly, not sure about the G1 to G4... as there is NO PLACE in town that carries G4. Poke Tounge Small town living *waves tiny flag*

So it'll be one of those see what you all decide to do and go from there. Smile

I would be up for organizing this. I've been thinking about running a newbie swap for a bit, I've just gotten busy doing so many things. Life has calmed down a little so I should have the time.

If this does get up and running, I'd love to be a part of it. I've done one swap before (currently in another, the newbie vacation swap), but never a custom swap. I have made customs though and I've been dying to customize a G4.

I would like to toss my name into this hat and get some swap experience and more practice. My only sticky point is that I can't be partnered with Tiella, as it's kinda self-defeating to have my wife as my swap partner (though it'd save money on shipping! Happy ).

I'd volunteer to help anyone out who can't get a G4 bait. Most stores around here carry them.

it's nice to see lots of interest in this Smile it's always fun to do swaps, and this will be awesome for our new members to get some feedback, as well as customizing experience!


Just so everyone knows, I will be acting as "keeper of keys" but won't be making a custom....we want all the new kids to get a chance to participate Smile


Flarewing - I will be sure to keep you two separated Wink haha

I will be away from home a bit tomorrow as my son is having a medical procedure done a ways from home. Jupiternwndrlnd will keep an eye on the thread in case there are questions and I will check back in tomorrow afternoon or evening. I am super excited about this and think it will be a ton of fun if everything falls into place!

If this moves forward I would love to participate as well. I've only done one private swap and am currently working on another. It would be great to participate in an "official" newbie swap. =)

Awesome sauce!

I would be willing to get my partner a G4 if they live in a pony-scarce area.

Thanks hannaliten. I was looking at Hasbro.com as well. I might pick up a couple at one time if I do this.

Downside for me is my husband ask that my partner not be overseas cause of shipping costs and stuff. Poke Tounge He //is// the boss.

What are the typical shipping cost average??? Since I know many have done it.
