RFF Postcard Project #8

Gentlemen, Gentlewomen,

we need another round of RFF Postcard Project! Peaple start to get twitchy... Some people were already asking themselfes, if they missed a round (me included). Nobody stepped forward and someone threw a comment towards me to step in, thanks Frank... I guess, previous organisators are probably out shooting or have other things on their plate. However, they made great efforts in previous rounds and I hope, I will be not a too bad successor. That said, here we go:

This is round 8 of RFF Postcard Project, slowly becoming a tradition here on RFF. Inventor Rob (rbiemer) laid out the basic rules which I will follow here and which are as follows:

RFF-PP is a picture postcard exchange. Every participant selects one of his photographs and makes postcards from it (make prints yourself, order postcards online - it is up to you. I always ordered online.), which are sent to each other participant of this round. Please choose only one picture (this is really the hard part!), so that every participant ends up with the same collection of picture postcards.
  • Organisation: To participate, please sent a mail to rff-at-mempool-dot-net (that's me) containing the following information:
    • Subject: RFF Postcard Project
    • Your Name
    • Address, as you would write it on a postcard to yourself from somewhere far away in the world (including line-breaks and country name, as this is an international project)
    • RFF User-Name
    I promise, that all your data is only used for the purpose of this project and will never given away for anything else!
  • Timeframe: You can sent me your mails for participation until Saturday, February, 11., 2017, about six weeks from now on. After that, I close the list and sent every participant the complete list one day later. Then I give another six weeks to shoot/choose the picture, create the postcards and mail them. Meaning, please try to sent your postcards until end of March, 2017, latest.

If I remember correctly, we had about 35-50 people each time, so this is what you can expect this time, too, I think.

I missed no round until now and I can promise you from looking at all the great cards of the previous rounds, that this is worth the effort! It's a treasure, so please participate! - RFF is a really great place for this type of projects.

Let's have some fun, start mailing!

Best regards,
Stephan

A happy new year to all of you!

My suggestion for a new years resolution: Make a postcard!

As of now, we have five people who have sent me mail to enter the project. Keep it coming!

Hello,

we are now 14 people. I have sent a reply with a sometimes corrected address to all who contacted me. So, if you got no reply from me, something went wrong.

There is some space left, please join! It's fun!

Hello Rolfe,

strange, that my first reply didn't reach you. Maybe look into your spam-folder? I have my first reply to you in my archive and the mail-server-logs state, that the mail was delivered.

However, all three of you are now in the list.

Best Regards!

You are both in. Nice to have you this round, too.

Please for all new participants: Sent your mail to my personal email-address as listed in the first message of this thread. Do not use the RFF-message-system, as I may easily miss them.

Regards,
Stephan

Okay, sorry for bad text-layout. I marked it green now for better visibility.

I am in once again, I have not missed any of the Postcard Projects and they are worth the time and expense to produce and mail the postcards. The collections of postcards and stamps from around the world are fantastic. Thanks for stepping up and organizing round eight!

Hello fellow RFFers!

A short update: we are now 27 people (me included) - so we have places left!
By now, everybody should have received a mail from me with your address as a confirmation of your mail - I also asked a few questions regarding missing address parts.

Best regards,
Stephan

Hello Bill,

yes, the address used in a web-browser is the front-page of my web-server, not a phishing-site. But also no content, which is hidden behind the curtains.

(Techtalk-Warning) The warning may be because I use HTTPS only for the deep pages, so the sites certificates are intentionally wrong for the front-page. - Looking suspicious keeps away suspicious people...

We definitely need more countries!
