welcome back and yes I would be interested in participating once again

vote-for14vote-against

Sure. It is this type of thing that keeps interest up. It is fun. I just hope this is not deleted for not being 'Deal Related'.

vote-for10vote-against

I knew that I hadn't seen you around lately. Count me in.

vote-for9vote-against

I could probably throw some stuff together. Count me in as well.

vote-for10vote-against

This might be the only way I'll ever get a Bucket of Cats. Sounds like fun!

Depends on the when for me. I will be on out of town for most of September. I will watch for further details. If the mailing date works for me, I am in.

vote-for7vote-against

Sure! I did not participate in the Christmas one but have the time to do so now.

vote-for11vote-against

I have some BoC karma to pay forward so count me in.

Also, is anyone interested in perhaps heading up this thing if we do decide to go through with one? I know I did it last time and we had about 50 total participants with a total of around 84 boxes that went out. It was a bit of hard work and a tad frustrating at times. Realistically, I'd do it again if nobody wants to volunteer for it. Just a thought.

Also as per last time, staff are once again invited to participate.

vote-for8vote-against

@studerc: *encouraged to participate (even if most of the cool staff left)

vote-for9vote-against

@capguncowboy: Last time around we had a couple staff participating. If memory serves me well it was @goldenthorn and @agingdragqueen unsure on @pemberducky. It would be fantastic to see some more of the staff members to participate to prove their loyalty to us Wootizens :)

*Also, it's been a few months, staff names may or may not have been slaughtered. Also very unsure of who has left and who is still here...yikes I'm out of the loop.

vote-for9vote-against

@studerc: I guess it's not fair to say that most of them left -- but a lot did. Honestly, I'm not sure who participated last time (it's been what seems like ages ago), but there are still good staff left, and I hope they join us.

@studerc: I ran off and joined a circus, didn't you hear?

vote-for10vote-against

Hey hey! I'm still here, primarily lurkin' as is my wont. Also, just to clarify for those who may not know, i'm but a lowly volunteer mod, with no powers on deals, just the main sites. I'd love to participate again, but I'll be out of the country 'til 16th Sept, so my participation hinges on timing.

vote-for8vote-against

@pattiq Hells yes! Paris and Aix. Been tons already, so it's just a relaxing, hanging-out trip rather than a site-seeing one. Though site-seeing will certainly be done, as there are always favorites to revisit and new stuffs to explore. It's my yearly mother/daughter holiday (I'm the daughter).

vote-for8vote-against

Would love to participate, have lots of excess crap that needs to be passed on. I don't think I could do the organizing as my life is in shambles right now due to so many things going wrong since the new year I'm surprised I still wake up in the morning and plod to work. However, I love the crap exchanges or getting random crap in general as I'm a big fan of surprises, and you never know what I'll fall in love with from a random box of crap....from woot or wootizens!

vote-for9vote-against

In!

Like many I don't come round here as often as I used to. I got some drunk woots still in the box. Who wants some upside down tomato growing things? I can promise 2 of those to whoever I get matched with!

vote-for9vote-against

I would be glad to participate, but have some traveling scheduled for the next couple of months so timing is an issue for me, too. (Some time in the next few weeks I have to write some speeches and put together some powerpoint presentations.) Actually cleaned out my closet over the summer and gathered a tub of random crap for the next exchange, so as long as I have the name and address of my designated victim, er, recipient, I will be ready to go!

vote-for7vote-against

I have a drawer full of crap ready to go.

vote-for4vote-against

Awesome goodwill. Can't participate, too much travel and many 20 hour days. But thx for the idea. Maybe next time.

Am also out of the loop. Was there some sort of big bad event on deals that left bad karma?

vote-for4vote-against

I'd be in for that! I LOVED the last one!

vote-for5vote-against

@studerc: If you let me know what being in charge entails, I would perhaps be willing to head up this thing.

vote-for2vote-against

@conanthelibrarian: For some crazy reason, my upvote on your comment went down. This was an egregious error. Many many apologies.

vote-for5vote-against

@goldenthorn: I spent one day (not nearly enough!) in Paris last year with my Mom. It was a layover stop in our travels. This year we are going to Osaka, Japan and then a cruise to Alaska on the way home.

Mom is the best travel companion. She and I get to spend some time together and we like many of the same things.

vote-for5vote-against

@pattiq: Ooh, Osaka! I dream of going there and just eating my way through the town 'til I burst all Monty Python style. And, oh, the pretty! One of my goals is to do an Alaskan cruise--I've never done a cruise before, and I want my first to be that trip. Aii, my envy! :-P

And, yes, I love traveling with my mother! We're similar enough that we agree on most everything. Yay for mama-ed holidays!

@curli76: Actually it was pretty straight forward last time. I began with a feeler similar to this. Then I set out another question stating that people email an email address that I created just for this (quick gmail setup, 3 mins). People then confirmed or denied their interest in participating by emailing me their address and information.

Last time I had people provide some information to give people hints...honestly it didn't work out all that well and I wouldn't recommend doing it... Also last time I allowed people to send as many boxes as they wanted. Someone even sent 4. I believe I also paired people up last time to make it logistically simpler.

After we set up the parameters of the exchange I created one last question to allow people to comment on what they got. All in all last time around we had somewhere around 50 people participate, with a total of 75+ packages sent out.

Thoughts, questions, declarative statements?

vote-for3vote-against

@studerc: This is exactly what happened lol

vote-for6vote-against

Why would anyone vote this down? Snot heads...

vote-for3vote-against

@studerc: sounds like fun.depending on when I may be in...tons of crop to share!

vote-for4vote-against

This sounds like fun, I might be in to donate a few bags, just can't get any more crap in return. I am moving next month and need to unload crap

vote-for5vote-against

I'm interested. I have a bunch of crap that I've been saving up. :) Not really back to school themed, but still some fun crap.

Count me in.

vote-for2vote-against

Sorry to say I am not able to coordinate this. Just too much work to do. Also, if we do one now, will people still be interested in a holiday bOC? Does it matter?

@cowboydann: I would be honored to "take" a cowboydann DoC again
