    Yeah, I was very surprised it came through intact, especially since my post office is know for destroying stuff.

    3 more cards just arrived:

    Faversham Boatyard by Bob F-vg for a first attempt at colour printing!
    Orthodox Priests by Blackmelas-fascinating story behind it and good use of tonal contrast to fill the space. Thanks for the kind comments
    Kitchen by Valerie-subtle,quiet warm tones in a contemplative image of your domestic space-thanks also for the kind comment

    Looking forward to the next round!

    What a nice end to the old year - two more cards arrived today.
    Thanks to Matthijs for the beautifuuly printed and mounted subway,
    and BWKate for the fascinating collection of marbles. I had great fun deciding which way was up before noticing the labels on the back.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Excellent exit to the old 2007 year. I am hopping for even better 2008 for everyone connected to APUG and post card exchange.

    Cheers Greg. eh!

    Hi all,

    December was a pretty busy time for me and so I was very quiet. I want the thank everyone for sending the cards, I will post some more comments later.

    I just started the sign-up thread for the next round which might not yet be on your radar screen: Postcard Exchange Round 13

    ciao

    OK,

    I got a hint that there are still people waiting for cards from this and the last round. Because people might step back from this exchange because they feel fooled, I think we should address this problem. I am not sure about the best way to do this. Cards can get lost on their way, so I would not like to have anyone blamed in the public.

    I would propose to give those late comers a bit more time. But in the end I would ask those participants who miss a huge amount of cards to send be a list of those people and I will collect that data and send out reminders.

    There might be better ideas about how to deal with this and I am open for suggestions.

    Thanks to all participants who already sent their cards and thanks to all participants who are going to send their cards.

    ciao

    About cards not received.

    I've done some statistics about the cards I do and I don't received:

    I should have received 38 cards
    I have received 33 cards
    Percentage of acomplishement: 86,8%

    I find this percentage quite reasonable, atending that some cards perhaps are lost in the trip.

    On the other hand, atending the messages in the forum, I think I will receive at least another 2 cards. In that case, the percentage of acomplishement would be 92,1%.

    About previous rounds, my statistics are:

    Round #11:
    Number of postcards ----> 41
    Received --------------> 35
    Percentage of acomplishement ----> 85,4%

    Round #10:
    Number of postcards ----> 43
    Received --------------> 39
    Percentage of acomplishement ----> 90,7%

    Round #9:
    Number of postcards ----> 31
    Received --------------> 27
    Percentage of acomplishement ----> 87,1%

    I have posted in the other thread (the round#13 sign up) that I just mailed my last 8 cards and who those recipents were to be. They are Art, gmessarit, gphoto120, hal9000, kraker, randyman, stan160, and Tim Walls. Sorry they were so late but I was working quite alot this season and basically only had Christmas Eve day, Christmas, and New Year's Day off.
    I am very happy with this round. I have received 29 postcards of the list of 30 I had.
