    I completely understand crazy busy life. I was just throwing a few ideas out there. I think what you have done is admirable. It seems most of the issues can from a few members being D-bags. Sucks that things get de-railed at times because of people like that. I guess there is no helping that some people are always Blue Falcons. You are awesome Mooshi!!!

    I have a couple general thoughts to throw out there.

    I know box B has had some issues in speed, but otherwise seems to be going well. I'm under the assumption that the findings with box A are not affecting box B at this time, so my comments are with that in mind. If box B has the same issues, please correct me.

    What will it take to get box A back to a largely self-regulated box again? From the generosity in this forum, I would expect we could have it up and going in a week or two based on some paypal and shipping donations. If someone was willing to coordinate this, we could get box A going with minimal supervision required by Mooshi. It's amazingly generous effort from her so far, and I'd hate to ask any more of her. It's time for the rest of us to step up. While I don't have time to gather everything myself, I would be willing to do some form of donation to help get the box going again.

    It's also hard for me to picture how bad the Box A is. It sounds pretty awful from the description. Can we get a pic of a box dump for a better general consensus, or is that too much against the spirit of the box?

    :) It wasn't directed at you. haha Just explaining why I wouldn't want to moderate the box so closely. Being in charge of last year's forum-wide holiday exchange was a large task in itself. I couldn't imagine the amount of time I'd have to set aside if I had to moderate this on top of my already busy schedule. That's all. :)

    Looks like Box B will be making its way to me soon.

    Guess I may as well get Box A and see what's up. Tower hasn't replied to my PM the other night though.

    Tower: I am 2 down from you on the list. I can use some paracord and have a value item to include in exchange. If you want to forward it, I can relieve it from some of it's overage and move it down the line.

    I'll bunker down with this in the coming weeks. Right now there's too much going on in my personal life. So once the boxes get to me it'll be on hiatus for a week or two while I figure things out. :)

    I would prefer that you baby it before I get it :)

    Just don't make it a priority. Hiatus sounds good.

    If you need anything to add, PM me and I can ship a couple things out.

    And take care of yourself! We'll always be here.

    This looks really cool. Add me down for a list. I don't care which one.

    I've been informed that mooshi will no longer be a part of this. Not sure what the plan would be after that.

    Sorry to hear one of the boxes has started getting a little light on value. In the EU passaround, we had a sheet where people would cross off what they took and then write what they added. This worked quite well I heard, and if people were to do a quick check of the items vs what's on the list and report stuff that's missing.

    I read through both the regular pass around and the EU thread when I first signed up. I was impressed with how well the EU box seemed to do. I hope we can figure out what we are doing with box A and box B...

    Am I correct to think its just the one box that's suffering?
