We recently conducted a random survey among the Snail Mail Friends community to gather essential feedback and insights. Our findings indicate that the site has not fully met the expectations of many members, particularly those who have yet to participate in any swaps. Unfortunately, a significant number of respondents did not provide reasons for their dissatisfaction. We are earnestly seeking more detailed feedback and suggestions to improve our platform. If you received the survey but haven't filled it out yet, doing so would be greatly appreciated.
A key issue identified in our survey was the lack of regional swaps. If you have a Standard, Premium, or Platinum membership, you are able to launch your own events, including regional swaps. Interested in hosting? Go ahead and create one, and remember, we're here to help if you need any assistance.
For those who have specific swap ideas but aren't inclined to host, your suggestions are still incredibly valuable. We encourage you to share these ideas on the forum. Our community, especially those enthusiastic about regional swaps, is keen to support and bring your ideas to life.
In light of the responses received, we've launched an Event account designed to periodically shift focus to various countries. As a first measure, we've introduced two pilot swaps specifically for our U.S. members, who form a notable part of our community. The insights gained from these pilot swaps will be instrumental in refining our approach towards more inclusive and diverse regional swaps in the future.
In conclusion, your active involvement, be it through hosting swaps or sharing creative ideas, is crucial to the growth and vibrancy of our Snail Mail Friends community. Together, let's enrich our swapping experience and foster a dynamic environment where all members feel engaged and valued. We eagerly anticipate your unique contributions to our future swaps!
