Secret Pals on LJ 2

Well, as you lovely fiber-minded people may have figured out by now, I'm not going to be doing a Secret Pal on LJ 3 any time soon, or possibly ever. A combination of a full class load my senior year of college, working, being quite involved in two school programs/clubs and keeping the house relatively cleaner than a tornado's path looks is just not going to allow me to wrangle so many people and deadlines and emails for three months. I'm really sorry about this, but it's just not possible at this time. I also think an October-December run would be difficult because of the (western hemisphere Judeo-Christian) holidays and all they entail falling smack in the middle of it.

If any of you would like to run SPLJ3, by all means, go right ahead! I would love to participate again, but as I said, I just can't run the thing. If you want to take over secretpal_lj3, the comm I already made, just let me know and I'll hand it over to you. (First come, first serve, if it even gets to that point.) Do it however you'd like and I'll probably join, and then we'd all get to participate again.

Again, my apologies for backing out, and for waiting until the last minute (I know I kept saying we'd run from October first). I had so much awsome fun in the first two, and maybe I'll start it up again this summer or something. I'll miss this all, and I'll miss getting to see everyone's loot and talking about yarn and stuff! Thanks for being nifty.

Ohhhhh! I'd hate to see it go. I look forward to my package every month. I'd be happy to take over for the time being, so long as the other mods, are willing to step up and do it. This is just too much fun to let die.

I have the kind of time and internet connection at work to head something like this up pretty easily. I'm definitely willing to do it, if those of you who've done it before will bring me up to speed on how the rules have generally worked in the past.

That would be awesome! You can definitely email me with any questions you have--I'm generally pretty quick at answering them, as in same day or next day unless things get really hectic. You can copy SPLJ1 and 2 exactly, or you can change everything completely around, do whatever you want. I'll definitely help advertise in the knitting and spinning comms I'm in, as well as on my personal journal, so just keep us posted here in this comm as to how things are going with that.

You are now officially a maintainer of secretpal_lj3!

Awesome! I just joined up. I'll send you an email later tonight or tomorrow to ask about how things were organized behind the scenes. I can't see changing the rules used this go around, except maybe timing to deal with the holidays. (3 exchanges over four months, with Dec/Jan acting as one month of the exchange to cover all the time/financial bases.)

Thanks for giving me the chance to do this!
