**Baby Shower Gift Exchange sign up**

If you are interested in participating in the Gift exchange and you meet all the requirements to participate (listed below), please fill out the questionnaire listed below, and PM it to me. DO NOT POST YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE ON THIS THREAD. When I get yours, I'll add your name to the list of participants on this thread. I'll leave this open for a week or so Biggrin

(Also, when do you think we should have the packages sent by?)

First and Last Name
Address
Due Date
Boy/Girl/Surprise
What?s the weather like in July where you live in?
Nursery Themes?
Registered Anywhere?
Anything you don?t need/want/won?t use?
Any colors you don?t like?
Does it matter if its organic or not?
Anything else?

Exchange Guidelines (apply to card, gifts, coupons, etc.)

Members accept any / all risks involved (i.e. neither hosts nor Pregnancy.org are responsible if they choose to participate.)
You do respect the confidentiality of ALL personal contact information submitted and under NO circumstance share it with anyone outside of admin(that would be in an emergency) without the permission of the member other than within the guidelines for the exchange (i.e. the person they are matched with would receive their info. No one else.)
NEVER post anyone's personal contact information or allow anyone else to. (See host instructions for more details) All submissions should be sent to the host organizing via pm or email. (*Tip* You may find that it is helpful to organize all this information as it is received in a separate folder on your computer.)
We do have eligibility requirements for participants. This is not meant to prevent members for taking part in the fun but insuring some protection for our members that those signing up are *legitimate* members onsite. Eligibility for participation in exchanges (any form!) are set at a minimum of 3 months Pregnancy.org membership and a minimum of 300 posts. Of these 300 posts, for birth boards that are 2 years and younger -- 100 posts should be on the board hosting the swap. For all others -- 50 posts from the board offering the swap. This information may be found via a search (limited to posts) on the individual participant?€™s profile for that particular board. If you need further instructions on how to do this, please let us know.
For shipping, a return receipt (delivery confirmation) IS required. Once the member has shipped their item encourage them to save their receipt and give you the tracking number for your records. Generally these tend to run approximately $1 U.S. dollar or less additional expense and greatly help avoid potential problems.
If, for any reason, a member finds they will not be able to meet your agreement, they should please notify the host of the exchange immediately. We understand that there are certainly times that life happens and you cannot fulfill your obligation. Still, for fairness to the group as a whole, if this happens on two (or more) boards, you will not be able to sign up for further swaps/exchanges onsite.

I don't think you're too far off......we could start a chat thread? That could get your post count up.

I take that back.......I think you qualify. You have 4000+ total posts, so only 50 of them need to be from this board. So you can join! The 100 post requirement is for those who are *newer* members.

like I said before, we could start a chat thread to try and get post numbers up? I'm leaving this up for a week. So you still have that much time to try to get your numbers up!

I tried to look up my post count but got lost and confused. I'm pretty sure I have the required posts, so I'd like to sign up if I qualify. Hope more people join soon!

Kind of off topic but when will we set up birth buddies. I only ask since it seems there are a few that could have their babies in June which is only a couple weeks away.

We could do that pretty soon. We barely got a response to this so, I'm wondering what kind of response we would get to that??

True. I wonder why no one is interested in doing anything. We don't have a very active board.

Sorry ladies! I really want to do it, and I know I said that I would, but DH is really paranoid about me giving out my real info on the internet, and I just cant bring myself to go against that right now. That is why I backed out anyways, so I probably wouldnt do the birth buddies thing either. Which really sucks, cause I have been here for 3 pregnancies now and this is the first one where I
'could' have done it, and I was really looking forward to it. I was planning to go against DHs wishes on this, but I find I just cant Sad

DH is a cop, so I tend to defer to him about security, even though I think he is overly paranoid.

I was interested in the exchange, but I don't have the required posts under my new sn and I just dont have the time right now to be on as much as usual, (Finals for school, moving, etc.) to get up my posts. So that is why I am not doing that. I would be interested in having a BB though. I am kinda bummed that this board is so slow.....Wish we could shock it to life somehow Smile
