Peter - you're in my group, and I have sendt zip. I hope to get them printed this weekend, and to manage to get them shippped before I go offshore again.

I did it based solely on who wanted to print twice - lumped those guys into the same group, then spaced them out over the next four groups and placed everyone else one into groups in the order they appeared in the original thread. I wouldn't know who was an expert. The only thing I know is that I am not!
I think it would help Carl out if people declared themselves experts or novices - via PM or by posting here.

That is, people who completely do not honour their committment, despite e-mails, PMs and other subtle and not so subtle reminders from the organizers. Basically, these are the folks that have no valid excuse, particularly since a few of them are regular posters on APUG.
Not only that, but between the exchange organizers, we have a list of those people who have not honoured their committments in any exchange. The idea is that if they don't honour their committment in one exchange, they cannot particpate in ANY exchange. No one on that list has signed for this exchange.
The only sanction for any that do not exchange is to preclude them from participation in the future but I am not sure what the APUG guidelines are - one of the moderators might be able to answer that - but as I've said there is time yet and I believe we are a good lot
Actually, someone suggested that if the exchange deadbeats signed up, we should group them together, that way they'd get nothing from each other! I thought that was funny in my own morbid way.
Having been printing plt/pld since about Sept 2005...
I can certify myself as a novice - one that is trying to improve though
Never done Pd/Pt, never done kallitype, on my first bottles of (home brew) cyanotype and van Dyke, second pack of POP paper, done two Polaroid emulsion lifts (both very successful, to my surprise) - very novice!

Since I did quite a bit of Van Dyke a few years back, I would classify myself in the OLD POOP catagory. Since that is not an option, and I figured out what my recent problems were, I will squarely put myself in the intermediate. I've also done quite a few cyanotypes.
I'm definitely a novice in albumen.
Gee, what's before novice...guess that will have to be it for me.
