bringing back the glory days of the pen pal scene

Old School Swapping
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Are you missing the old days of decorated friendship books, alternative-esque penpals, and swapping like mad?
Did you regularly pay almost a dollar (or whatever your country's currency may be) for postage on a single letter due to all of the stuff you had crammed inside?
Do you find yourself looking nostalgically at an old shoebox of envelopes and outdated friendship books and thinking, "What the hell am I going to do with all this stuff?"

Well, then, this is
the place for you. Here, we're trying to bring back those old days, make some new friends, and generally have a blast.

However, there are a few rules, and your mods are pretty strict about enforcing them.

01. This is an open community, so be very careful if you post your address. All posts containing addresses
must be locked
02. This is a community about making friends, therefore the atmosphere must also be friendly. No flaming, no harrassment, none of that.
03. This community is geared towards the underground/alternative set. You can join even if you don't consider yourself alternative, but be warned, you may not find what you're looking for.
04. Upon joining, you have to make a post introducing yourself. Yes, that means you. No exceptions. Please use the following form:

Name (or preferred penpal moniker):
Email address:
Website (if applicable:
What do you swap?:
Musical tastes:
How many swapping friends would you like to have?:

I think that covers everything. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your friendly mods.

Much love
