Glad to see we've got lots more participants. I'm working to get out an updated status list. I've talked to Sean out of band, and he's looking into a way to lift the restriction on how long after a post I can edit a message so I can just keep a single message at the top of the thread with all the current participant info rather than posting multiple copies. I'll post multiple copies for now, and if/when he finds a way around the edit restriction, I'll just make the multiples pointers to the upated list at the top of the thread.

cheers,

Although being a recent member of APUG, I'd be very interested in participating in the exchange.

Not only are brand-spanking new APUG members very welcome, it's also unnecessary to ask if participants are willing to send to your remote-from-the-continental-US location. One of the agreed expectations of all participants is that regardless of the location of the recipient of your photography, you agree to send it there -- even if your recipient is in Timbuktu (http://whc.unesco.org/sites/119.htm) or Operation Deep Freeze (http://www.seafarers.org/HeardAtHQ/2004/Q1/odf.xml).

If you're in the exchange for enough cycles, I would expect pseudorandomization would ensure that no individual has to pay a disproportionate amount of postage in the, uh, long haul.

This Blind Exchange is wholly separate from any existing gallery, although at some point I was planning on asking if we wanted to either use an existing gallery or start up a new one to share the faint digital shadows of what we exchange with the rest of the participants after our designated recipient has already received it.

castilg,
All your questions should be answered by reading the very first message in this thread from beginning to end. Any questions after that, feel free to either PM me or ask in this thread. This is an exchange of actual photographic products you can hold in your hand, such as prints, proofs, negs, slides, etc. This particular exchange is not one where someone uploads an image and we all talk about it afterward.

You've already done it. Just drop a line into the thread. Every 2-3 days, I'll collect the new names and shoot each new interested party a copy of the expectations of the exchange as well as a request for their mailing and E-Mail addresses. If the expectations are suitable to you, send me your address by reply PM and you're in. I will either periodically post an updated participant status list or update the one at the top of the thread, depending on whether Sean (sysadmin) finds a way for me to get around the default edit timeout on messages.

Strictly speaking, though, this is a photography exchange. Any analog photography product is welcome, including but not limited to negatives, minilab prints, alt process prints, contact sheets, slides, etc.

I noticed you just sent me a PM. I'll send you a query when I do my next round of queries. Probably tonight or tomorrow sometime.

Cheers & welcome,

-KwM-

(btw -- the aforementioned expectations are the same text as in the first message of this thread.)

Although it's probably difficult and certainly unfair to do, it would probably make things a lot easier if when you send me your address, you use the regular ASCII character set rather than extended characters, superscript, subscript, etc. When I send out the addresses for recipients, I'll be using the PM I was sent, and it's not entirely certain that extended characters will display the same on all computers/typefaces/operating system/browser combinations.

cheers,
