Drawing Done - FBTB Holiday Exchange 2011

Postby Mofo Jones » Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:25 am

Hello FBTBers! Thought I'd organize this again and see how many responses/participants we get.

Details:
Deadline is Dec 01 11:59 PM Pacific time (GMT -8:00) to participate, then I figure out who sends to whom.
Post in here if you're interested in participating.
Specify if you will ship within your country or internationally.
Send a set or a MOC or parts worth approx. 10-15 $/£/€ to the person drawn for you.
Expect the same from the person drawn to send to you.
Ideally, I would like to see everybody getting a package in the mail by Christmas, but that's not always possible.
I will follow up with all participants to check if items have been sent and/or received.

Caveats:
Don't put your name down if you cannot afford to participate or are just trying to score free LEGO without sending some out too

Anyone who participates but doesn't send their side should expect to receive a negative feedback on the Straight Shooters list, with all the consequences that might result from this.

On the flip side, all who do receive their gifts are encouraged to post positive feedback on the SSL, as this exchange is considered by all means a trade made through this forum.

In other words, be a responsible adult about this, even if you're not there chronologically.
People who agree to participate and then wuss out or don't send their side will be publicly called out on here.
I expect everybody to post when they receive their gift.
Please don't go all cheap and dump off your stash of say, extra battle droids on an unsuspecting person.
In past years, I have found a new set and sent that. But, that's only because I can't MOC for anything.

Finally, I am available by PM to answer questions. Good luck, and May The Force Be With You!

Edit: Again, my budding LEGO maniac daughter Marissa has helped me with the selections by being my "pick the names out of the job jar" assistant. Without further ado, the exchanges for this year are:

1. Mofo Jones sends to Drock
2. Cas sends to onions
3. Andi sends to Solo
4. SDIronClaw sends to Cas
5. Voice of Reason sends to MrCRskater
6. MrCRskater sends to Austin
7. Solo sends to Chief
8. Austin sends to Diaaabo
9. bluemoose sends to Septemris
10. Septemris sends to BlueDragonZ
11. onions sends to SDIronClaw
12. Daz Hoo sends to bluemoose
13. Diaaabo sends to Daz Hoo
14. BlueDragonZ sends to Mofo Jones
15. Drock sends to Andi
16. Chief sends to Voice of Reason

If anybody wants to swap for some reason, PM me and we can make alterations. I know these pairings aren't the same as last year, but I can't say the same for previous years.

Now, contact each other, exchange address info, then brave the stores (or your LEGO stash) and start exchanging!

Please post when you've received a gift so I can mark that exchange completed!

Again, PM me if you have questions or concerns!

Last year we had 100% participation. I don't recall if we did on previous years, although I remember that Andi was reluctant to organize it last year because of somebody's failure to send in 2009 or 2008. I don't recall who it was. So, to answer your question, I don't have a blacklist and I am unaware if somebody else has one or not. IIRC we can't dig into the previous version of the forums, so I don't know how far back I can research this.

Austin..... and Ian..... and Bernard....... wow, long time.

Is it too much to hope that Mike shows up?


(And just so this post has some relevance, I won't be taking part, but wish you all good tidings throughout this happy time of year)

If memory serves me right, I was in for all the previous editions of this community event.

So count me in again, internationally.


P.S. Thanks to Andi for giving me a heads-up on this! :)
