Say... a MOD?
I'm just saying that having a card exchange is a great idea - or even a Secret Santa, maybe, I don't know if it's too late to start something up at this stage, but maybe I'll post something this weekend to see if people are interested.
I'm planning to send out my Christmas cards early next week (so behind, I know), so I could probably send another couple of cards out in the exchange.
My old Christmas forum had an exchange with about 70 members participating. The cut off for participation was very early in November. So we are very late getting organized with this - particularly for sending international cards!
A question for the moderators --
Since I am a first-time user to this forum, I prefer to not get 'permanently banned' for posting a link.
However, I wish to ask permission.
Again this Christmas, the manufacturers are advertising products and then not supplying stores with enough product to meet the demand. This causes a lot of frustration among shoppers because new shipments sell out very quickly.
I have access to free on-line software that can help your members find hard-to-find and/or out-of-stock merchandise at Amazon.
The software checks stock every 5 seconds and rings a bell on the searcher's computer when new stock arrives. This puts searchers who use this software about 90 seconds ahead of most other programs that check Amazon stock -- which gives them a better chance of getting what they want at retail prices.
Yes, I earn a small commission when people buy through that link. As you may know, Amazon's commissions are in dimes and quarters -- so, yes, the commissions are really small.
But this could help your people get what they want.
May I post this link?
Its best to post a relevant link when you have written several relevant posts. Seven or more posts. Also please write some info about the link (like above) before you are posting.
how soon after reporting a spammer does it normally take to either get rid of the offending posts or ban the spammer? Just wondering because I just reported some of Kathleen422's posts. This spammer has many spam/advertising messages on the new posts page right now. I don't know about anyone else, but I feel angry when I see posts like this. Thanks so much , allthingschristmas, for all your hard work and for this wonderful site.
I'm sorry, I'm trying to stay on top of these, but sometimes it takes a little time, as we're not always online. Thanks for your help though, reporting posts like those really helps me out.
(And yet, I get angry too!)
