Still going?

Is there hope for future swaps? I participated in a few earlier ones and really enjoyed trying so many new things (fish jerky, who'da thunk?), and I'd really like to do another. :D

Howdy! So, as the long-absent founder of the community, I'm going to speak for just about everyone and say that the truthful answer is: Probably not.

The truth of the matter is, the recession killed us. Postage and snack costs alone were too much to think about when rent was getting hard to pay and houses were being foreclosed on. Since then, I think other groups have taken up this mantle and made it work really well. For instance: https://www.reddit.com/r/snackexchange

The migration from LiveJournal to other social media forums certainly hasn't helped either.

I'm going to collaborate with the remaining mods and see if there's any interest in trying to drum up another swap, but I think the group might be considered indefinitely closed going forward.

Thanks for the reply, and thanks for all your hard work putting past swaps together! :)
