Information You Need on Saturday, Sept 16

By now all participants should have received an email from swap-bot that will indicate you need to log in to swap-bot to find out who your swap pal is.

Once you get the name of your swap pal, come back here and find your pal in the list below. It's in alphabetical order, note the answers to their questions and please be mindful of those with allergies - it's very important to respect that.
