Communication Issue

It seems there are some that are concerned about not being contacted by their "Spoiler". On the other hand, there are many "Spoilers" that do not want to contact their "Spoilee" because they would like to remain secret until the end of the swap. This is actually, a secret swap, and I, for one, am of the opinion that if you don't want to contact your "Spoilee" and keep your identity a secret, that just adds that much more to all the fun. Imagine how fun it will be for a "Spoilee" to receive a package from their "Spoiler" who took the extra time to get to know them without asking them direct questions. That's brilliant!

This being said, I just want to direct everyone that might not be reading this blog to Miss Mandy Finch-Fletchley's Week Two - Communication post. This is an outstanding post for both those that are concerned about no contact and those that are not contacting. She gives fantastic ideas here on how to get around the contact issue, and still keep your identity secret from your pal.

Of course, if you don't see any "secret" communications appearing, by all means get in touch with your Prefect, who can do some digging for you. If they get back to you and let you know that your "Spoiler" is actively participating in the swap you can probably rest assured that they just want to really surprise you. :D

Thanks again, Miss Mandy, for the awesome post!
