Annual FBTB Holiday Exchange!

Postby Mofo Jones » Fri Nov 15, 2013 1:06 pm

Yep, time for the annual disturbance in the Force known as the Annual FBTB Holiday Exchange! Since Daz did a great job with his rules last year, I'm "borrowing" them for this year, and modifying as necessary.

Details and conditions
1) Deadline is November 30th at 11:59 PM Eastern time to participate, then I figure out who sends to whom and I post it here.

2) To participate, simply post in here. Please specify: a) the country you live in; b) if you will ship within your country or internationally. And please, try to be logical about where you're willing to ship. If you live in the USA, shipping locally won't cause that much of a problem for the drawing. But if you live in Ireland, you might end up shipping something to yourself ;).

3) Once the drawing is done and you know who you're sending to, you must send a set, a MOC or parts worth approximately 10-15 $/£/€ to that person. Please don't go all cheap and dump off your stash of say, extra red 2 X 4 bricks on an unsuspecting person. Instead, look at the posts of the person and figure out what he/she is in to and what might make your gift really special.

4) Expect the same from the person drawn to send to you.

5) Ideally, since it's a X-Mas exchange, everybody should be getting a package in the mail by Christmas, but experience tells us that it is not always possible. I will follow up with all participants to check if items have been sent and/or received.

6) 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.

7) People who agree to participate and then wuss out or don't send their side will be publicly called out on here. I also reserve the right to give them silly nicknames and virtually laugh at them whenever I get the chance.

8) When you do receive your gift (and you will XD), please post here so I can keep track.

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


Edit: 100% participation! XD XD XD XD

I've been doing Christmas decorations all day because it's been nice here. I'll pm everybody later with a question. This could break the world record for smallest FBTB exchange ever.

I would have liked to participate this year, but I was just a bit tight on extra funds. Sorry

So, here we go - used a random list generator and picked the first result that didn't have somebody sending to themselves! XD I think that Daz Hoo and Septemris have exchanged before, but considering the list is 50% Canadians, something like that was a possibility. Sorry, gents.
