Cheers

I'm in -- no matter how many participants we get. (if it goes over 60 and we split, I'm happy to be in both groups.)

It'll be a nice distraction from grading poorly written papers!

Smile Away we go!

Lots of good response both in this thread and in PM and emails, thanks folks!

So. What I am going to do is this:
The email address we will be using for this round is below and I really need anyone who wants to play to use that address, please!
I want to have every ones' info in one spot. Those of you who have already sent me your info, please resend it to the email address below.

I am not going to limit the total number except by the cut off date.
Which is 1 January 2013. I will send you all the addresses by Friday or Saturday that week. We should all plan on mailing starting on Feb 2.

As to the numbers, what I think makes sense and seems to be the consensus is that if we go over 50 or 60 people, then I will divide the total into smaller lists. I will make those as evenly split between local and international addresses as I can.
I will aim to have each of those smaller lists around 30 to 40 people, I think, but the actual number may be different depending on the total turn out. I will update the total in this thread as we go.

And, I remain unconvinced we need a theme for subject matter.

If you want to participate in RFF Postcard Project Part 3 please send:
  • Your mailing address.
  • your RFF user name.
  • IF you have a max number of cards you can send and what that number is.(this is for my use in organizing the lists and won't be shared with anyone else)
Send this info to:

rffpostcard3<at>gmail<dot>com

Thank you all for playing!

Rob

Thanks Rob - I'm also unconvinced that a theme is necessary. The first two projects were huge successes without themes, and if it ain't broke...

My info is on its way...

As of this afternoon (19 November) we are at 15 people, including me.

I have got a few more folks that sent their info to my own email and PM-ed me. If you folks would please resend your info to:

rffpostcard3<at>gmail<dot>com

I would very much appreciate it as that will simplify send you the mailing list(s)!

Thanks, all!
Rob

Just a thought, I do enjoy receiving the cards from as many of the members who would like to participate.

I concur registering for different lists, if required, just to get as many cards we will have participants. Count me in again. Just sent you an address confirmation email.

A quick update: we are around 30 people as of today 28 November.
Excellent, folks.
Just a bit more than a month to go before I stop gathering names and addresses and I'm staring to consider what I'm going to shoot for this one...Have used two BW photos of the lake where I live and work most of the year and am not sure if I want to continue that theme or if I want to do something different.
Well, I have time to shoot some with the postcard in mind as the end result and time to shoot as I generally do and see if any of those work well as a postcard.

Thanks again y'all for embracing this project and participating!
Rob

Folks,
if you have sent me an email and have NOT got a reply from me, please re-send your info to:

Thanks!

I'm ready to go also. Have 2 sets of Moo cards so everyone might get 2 cards from me.

This will be fun like the previous events.

Maybe we have scared them all away with speculations about too many participants, splitting lists and so on...

Rob, what is the current number of people?

Weighing the Cost

I participated the first time, but not the second time since I was moving during the mailing period and didn't know what would be my new address. Now that I'm settled into a new place, I'd like to participate again.

As for deciding on grouping of people, let me tell you about the cost of postage to mail a postcard from Italy (a European Union country) last time: it was € 0.75 (~ $1.00) to mail one to an address in Europe; it was € 1.60 (~ $2.10) to send one to the United States; and it was € 2.00 (~ $2.64) to Australia. I think the rates will be the same for all E.U. countries. The rates may have gone up in the past year, though.

I don't remember how many postcards there were for the U.S., but it was most of them, maybe three-fourths of them. So at about $2.10 a card for postage, that's adds up to a hefty fee for postage. For people in the U.S., though, to mail postcards to each other, it's only $ 0.32 a card. So the burden is much heavier on those of us not located in the U.S.

I liked getting cards from everyone, but if you're going to have two groups this time, it might be worth while to have one batch for the U.S. and another batch for Europe and the rest of the world. Then, as others have said, we could pick which batch we want. And maybe you can give each person a few from the other batch, making sure each person will receive a few from the other group. So I might choose all non-U.S. and be assigned five people from the U.S.

Lets hope we can work it out so we can all not have to sell our first born to pay postage.Your suggestion sounds good.

Just a bump for this thread and also to say that I'm getting a bit excited with printing postcards for other RFF members...I have a roll of 120 with what could be interesting images and I also still have a few rolls hanging that I have not really looked at but I know have some good shots also...

So- what's the status of this project, Rob? I seem to recall that you were going to send out a list around now for us to get started sending out cards, and I thought I signed up, but so far nothing. Am I early, or not signed up correctly, or have you not sorted it out yet? Sorry to bug you, I just don't want to miss the boat. Hope you- and everyone else reading this- had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all a happy New Year. Cheers!

EDIT- nevermind- I just re-read your first post more carefully and this time saw the remark that you would be trying to get a list out this Friday or Saturday. Sorry to jump the gun. Waiting patiently, but looking forward to this project. Again, HNY!

Folks,
I have not forgotten this project.
I have had very annoying internet problems for the last week or so(very brief connection and then long stretches of no connection.).
I will send out the list of addresses later today. Likely 9pm my time (EST) or so.

As of now I believe our total is just under 40 people and so I am sending one list to every one.
I will post here as soon as I've sent the list. At that point, if any one has not got the list please let me know.

Again, if you sent me your info through PMs here or to my personal email, I will ask one final time that you please send your info to:

[email protected]

If you think you have sent your info to that address already and have not got a reply, please re-send it!

Thanks for you patience, everyone!
Rob

I just got the list and must say I'm very excited...
I printed a few negs last Friday in hope of finding an image for this project and I'm pretty sure I've found what I want...
Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with...

Thank you Rob for putting this together...

Just finished printing my cards...set up my darkroom this morning and printed for most of the afternoon...they're done, dried and awaiting to be labeled and sent out at the assigned time...
And I must say I'm not sick of the image even after developing 3 dozen of them...

Rob,
Due to work and family commitments, I have been away from the forum almost since PP#2 was done. Sorry I missed #3. I will keep my eyes peeled for #4 later.
My accolades to you for this ongoing project, sorry I could not participate this time.
