Hey thought I'd weight in on the schedule. I'm happy with it the way it is. I don't believe giving people more time would help. I'm also not worried about the people who are late, or who never send their cards. I receive enough fantastic cards to make it totally worthwhile. The exchanges also motivate me to get out and photograph and then get in the darkroom and print so that also make it all worthwhile.
I have the same feelings. I got enough fantastic cards to make it fair (although I'll be happy to receive the few I've not received yet ;-) ). I don't think more time would change anything, I guess that people who don't send, simply can't for whatever reason they have.

A comment is appreciated (can be a PM if you really dislike my card and don't want to offense !) but not mandatory.
Anyway, let's have FUN and ADDICTION in this new exchange.

Hey, thank you for the feedback on the schedule. So for this round we should not touch the schedule, but we may think about to shorten the sign-up phase.
As announced, here is the list so far:
Christopher Walrath (15)
Happy New Year, Postcarders!
I┤m going to have to sit out this round too. I┤m finally moving house (tomorrow) after a lot of messing about. Hopefully the darkroom will be up and running in about 6 weeks, but I can┤t guarantee it.
Ruediger, are you taking sign ups for round 20 yet? Count me in for the max on that one! The withdrawal symptoms are really bad.
Count me in on this round. Max number, same address. Allen Friday.

I really hoped to be ready by this round, but the printing as yet doesn't say that another month will give enough progress. (Slow to grok.) But as a sign of faith, I ordered the postcard paper today. I'll return to lurking in eager anticipation until spring. (Already eager for spring in other ways.)
Sign me up please, max 50 again.
I've sent a PM with my information, I'd love to join. 15 for now, just so I can make sure I can make it.
I'm in for the max.
