Hi everyone,

It is time for the next round. Since I still have not heard back from Randy I am going to take over this new round too. I hope this is OK with you.

First I want to thank all those who participated in round 13 and especially those who were able to send their cards. There were some late comers (me included) but I think it was one of the best rounds anyway. We had this discussion about themes for the postcards rounds and most of the people giving feedback to this would like to continue the postcard exchange as is. The only thing changing is the schedule. Since there were so many people late this time I will change to a 4 month schedule. So in the future we will have 3 exchanges per year starting in January, May and September.

Here is the schedule for this round:

May: sign up
June+July: print and mail
August: breather
September: next round

Sign up is again by sending a PM to me with your name, address and the amount of cards you are able to send as I think we should continue to allow people to send fewer cards than the maximum. Please include your country with the address as this is an international exchange. I am good at guessing American addresses, from the exchange I know how to identify a Canadian address and I am able to realize a UK address by just its length, but I can not promise to do a good guessing job for all the rest. I still have the data from the last round, so for people from the last round it is also OK sign up just in this thread without sending the address details via PM again - in the case that you have not moved

It proved to be good to post the list of participants every once in while so please check if your name is on the list because I may make mistakes.

As a last thing, please do only sign up if you will be able to fulfill your commitment.

So, I am looking forward to this round.

PS: For those new to the exchange, here is how it all works out: When signup is over, I will prepare address lists which I will PM to the participants. You will have to send a card to every address on that list and you should receive back a card from everyone on that list. So if you sign up for e.g. 20 cards you will have to send 20 cards and you should receive 20 cards back.
