    Default Book Exchange [Planning for June]

    This year one lucky person will get a very special prize! I don't want to say too much, but it's gonna be sweet... I've said too much already...

    It's that time again! Christmas is almost upon us, so I decided I'll run it this go-around. Rules are simple:

    1. Everybody posts something like, "Fuck yeah dude! I'll play!"
    2. PM (Private Message for all you newcomers.) me your Personal Info as such:

    Johnny "The Christmas Tree" Bell
    2828 Sleigh Bell Road
    Tampa, FL 99999
    (Country stuff if applicable.)


    3. I put all the participants' names in a hat and then I draw them out randomly.
    4. I PM you the info of your randomly selected partner.
    5. You send a book or two out, you get a book or two back.
    6. DO NOT TELL ANYONE WHO YOU ARE SENDING A PACKAGE TO!
    7. DO NOT TELL ANYONE WHAT YOU ARE SENDING OUT!

    The sign up deadline is Friday, December 17th. I know that's cutting it a little close, but I want to give everyone a chance to sign up.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now, some more info about the Exchange:

    Usually people either send out a book envelope (The big minillia ones with the bubble wrap on the inside.) or a box (Anywhere from small to large.). Most of us don't stop at just books. I send out candy, shirts, and whatever other nic-nacs I can find with my books.

    The usual cost to mail a book envelope is close to 5 bucks. SHIP MEDIA MAIL! It's so much cheaper. For a box, depending on it's size and weight, normally it's anywhere between 5 and 10 bucks. Not too bad at all.

    Most gifts arrive in 2-7 days. If your package doesn't arrive, tell me, I'll talk to the person that was assigned to you and send out a replacement gift if necessary.

    The UK has it's own exchange, unless there aren't enough people wanting to play in the UK. In that case, myself and some of the other Exchange Veterans will send out packages internationally. It's no biggy... really. In the past, we've tried to do an Australian exchange too, but I've only ever seen Casey and a few others show an interest. So, I'm going to make a list for AU exchange, but we will figure it out as we go if hardly anyone signs up.

    Also, feel free to back out at anytime. I will send out multiple gifts if I have to make up for an uneven number of people or if someone has to back out after the drawing. And don't feel bad about it. Things happen, we lose jobs, people get hurt/sick, we have to take care of family, etc. We understand. It's not that big of a deal; and we'll look forward to having you in the exchange next year.
    I believe that, in the past, we've ran into some people that couldn't send out their packages for whatever reason, and didn't want to say they couldn't, and just kept on saying they would send it until it was late January. Please don't do this! People get offended and it throws the person running it for a loop.

    That's pretty much it, if any of the other Exchange Veterans have anything they want to add, PM me. Other than that, get to signing up folks.

    BongoHercules will be giving one lucky winner a bonus cache of books! You can only win it if you're in it!

    12/15/10:

    Moved the deadline to Friday, Dec. 17th. If anyone has any concerns with the new deadline, (Can't participate that day, don't want to participate, etc...) feel free to PM me. I realize that people may not get the gifts sent out in time for Christmas, if your box doesn't get here in time, think of it this way... Christmas Pt. 2; or if you're going on vacation somewhere you've got something to look forward to when you get home.

    How do we feel about damaged books?
    Some of my books have water damage, but are still readable.

    I'm going to assume that a) It doesn't matter provided they're readable and b) that everybody has read the Dexter series.

    If that's cool, then I'm in.

    For those of you that tried to PM me earlier, I had 67 messages of the 50 allowed messages. It's a glitch from when I was a mod. It's fixed now. Go ahead and send your info.

    Added Redwall and Tukian's Gal-Pal were added to the collective lists.

    I just want to remind everyone that there's only 9 days left.

    There are two big announcements tonight and nothing like the first has ever happened in the history of the exchange!

    One lucky winner will receive a cache of books from BongoHercules! What are these books? Who knows! Is this an honor? You bet your sweet ass it is! But with only possibly three days to go, you gotta be in it to win it!

    The second announcement, I started a thread to vote on if we should extend the deadline of the exchange. Please go look and vote. Presently, there's only one voter, so I'm not going to change anything if people don't vote.

    I will play! I'm from Australia but I'm happy to send to the US/UK/wherever if there isn't enough AU interest, just might take a bit longer.

    I'm going to extend the deadline to Friday the 17th because I'm going to call in today and try to get more people to sign up. I'd like to have the largest exchange that we've ever had this Christmas.

    I realize that people may not get the gifts sent out in time for Christmas, if your box doesn't get here in time, think of it this way... Christmas Pt. 2; or if you're going on vacation somewhere you've got something to look forward to when you get home.

    I'd like to be in. I don't post on the forum much so I'm sorry if you're expecting someone cool to send you a book and you just get me. I'll try to get some good books though.
