Guess what. It's time for the EoFF Christmas/Holiday/Whatever card exchange. I don't like to repeat myself, so enjoy the copypasta of RULES AND REGULATIONS.


1) If you add yourself to the list, make sure you're able to send a card to everyone who is on the list. Even a scrap of paper with "Merry Christmas!" on it makes for a great Christmas greeting. If your financial situation limits you from sending cards to a large number of EoFFers, PM me and we will work something out, however, I strongly urge everyone to try and send each member on the list something. No one wants to feel like Ralph Wiggum on Valentine's Day.

2) The deadline for having your addresses PMed to me is November 30, (the last Sunday of November) by 11:59 p.m. EST. I will be sending out the addresses the following week. Any addresses PMed to me after the deadline are going to sit in my PM box all alone and be sad. (probably)

3) Do not send your address to anyone else but me. I am not having crazy PM spam happening all over this board as a result of me. They'd beat me up in the Staff forum. (Or at least they'd try...)

4) As soon as the addresses are sent out and the cards are received, it is up to everyone who has the mailing list to delete them in a proper manner (there should be no reason to keep them after getting the cards). This is to ensure the safety and well-being of all those involved. Also note that I cannot be held accountable for what type of person ends up getting your address as a result of this. Please understand that you are putting a lot of trust in your fellow members when you decide to do this.

5) You do not have to give your real name or a permanent street address. PO Boxes or dorm addresses are perfectly fine to use, just as long as it is a real address that you maintain. You are more than welcome to use your EoFF name as the name on your envelope. Your mailman will just look at you funny.

6) Please do not send small objects inside envelopes. The envelope will be opened by workers at the U.S.P.S to ensure there are no hazardous materials inside, and the object will be removed. Glitter has, in my experience, not been subject to this removal.

7) Do not, under any circumstances, send rude or threatening messages to anyone through the Christmas Card exchange. If I find out about it, I will ban you from the exchange until I am dead, and I will urge those you offended to press charges, or seek legal recourse myself. It is against US Federal Law to abuse or threaten someone through the postal service. And I'll ban you. At any rate, you'll just be showing a lot of people what a jerk you really are. If you receive a threatening message and do not want to seek legal recourse on your own please come to me and I will help you through it as best I can. I AM HERE FOR YOU.

8) The most important rule, have a great time with this. This is one of the few times you can step outside of your EoFF identity and reach out to your online friends through real life communication. And it is a small, but incredibly powerful way to make a difference in someone's holiday season. There is no reason on earth this shouldn't be happy fun goodtimes.


Woo hoo! I have some antique cards I'm going to send this year. They have kitties on them.

Go to your post office and tell them where you'd like to send an item. They will produce the appropriate postage and slap it on your envelope.

Can we keep a running tally of who is in on this? I, too, would like to participate after a year of absence, but I know participating from Japan is going to be more expensive than participating from home.

That said - I worked at a post office this summer, and as long as is hasn`t changed, internation mail from the US is 94 cents.

I'm going to make my own cards using gaming pics, online comics , etc. xD

I'll use some fancy blanc christmas card for the card under it though.

Plus, it already costs a butload to send it.

International postage from Canada is $1.60 per card. To the States it's .96 per card. No, it's not cheap, but I'll still do it. :cat:

The Summoner of Leviathan
11-12-2008, 03:38 AM
From what I remember from the last few years, it costs about 20$ in total in postage for Canadians. Not that bad really. The majority are Americans, then a few Internationals and a handful of Canadians.

None were expensive. I just needed a refresher as to which one I sent you. :)

That's weird, my magnet keeps curling up for some reason. xD

Oh right, whoops, I washed the glitter off of it. :bigsmile:

I guess it'll just go in my drawer of things I want to keep.

And Megan, I did warn about glitter several pages ago :tongue:

Me and my kids loved the cards! They already knew Leeza's before we even read it because of the glitter bomb :bigsmile:

Hope it's not too late for me to send mine cause they are going this week... Mrs. manners sez they can be sent till the 6th ;)

No wonders I couldn't find this fucking thread! rubah! :twak:

I got the card that I sent to Shlup returned to me in the mail because of a wrong address or something, but it is what I was given so I don't know what's up with that. I will resend it.

So, I have received cards from Blue Harvest, AK, Sam and rubah.

My card to Shlup was also sent back to me. I'll resend it if she sends me her real address.
