UPDATE: Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt

You guys, it's time to start swapping! Sorry if in the past days I've sent ya'll a bunch of messages/emails but hosting such a swap requires to make sure that everyone knows what to do and how to do it, and especially that everyone's ready to keep their commitment.
Yesterday/this morning you should have received another email, with the list and your partner. IF NOT, EMAIL ME ASAP ( or check your spam folder especially if you use Gmail because it flags everything as spam!
Official tags to snoop on the other participants (aka tag your swap related stuff, pretty please):

Now, while you wait for your email, here's some fun facts for you:
  • 78 people, including me, joined the project. Crazy, right?!
  • 3 are the "circles" I created for the round robins: 1 for who requested America only, 1 for who request Europe only, and the biggest 1 for everyone else.
  • 35, almost half of the participants are from the USA.
  • 14 people wanted a partner from another continent,  16 wanted a partner from the same continent, and the remaining 48 didn't mind.
  • I'm not quite sure of this data, but only 2 participants are male.
  • It took me about 4 hours to write and send every email.

Disclaimer: I'll do my best to coordinate this swap the best I can and to track down possible cheaters, but unfortunately I can't be 100% sure that someone is not fooling me. I can, however, assure you that in case someone cheats, measures will be taken.

On a side note, 48/78 people, the 61% already read and replyed my email. If you're not among these, please do it soon because paranoia is killing me ç_ç
