    Default (RAOK) Random Act of Kindness - Toys for Members with Very Modest Collections

    When first starting out, please read the information below.
    __________________________________________________

    JOINING THE RAOK (Random Act Of Kindness) THREAD:

    Sorry, but we are not currently accepting new members at this time.

    RAOK THREAD MEMBERSHIP:

    If you are a current listed member, we need you to be able to receive private messages. You will need to have posted a minimum of 25 posts outside of the Swap Board. As a new member, your name will be placed at the top of the list. You can claim an offered item with the option to pass (you get 3 passes in total). If it's a pass, the item goes up for grabs at the posted time and any other listed member may claim it. Whoever claims it first, once it goes up for grabs, gets it! Once you have used up all your passes, your name drops to the bottom of the list. Eventually, your name will work itself back to the top.

    Keep in mind that if an item goes unclaimed, the thread doesn't move on until someone steps up and claims it, similar to PIF. Because of this and to keep the list as manageable as possible, we will be reaching out to members on the list several times per year. If a currently listed member remains unresponsive 48 hrs after the 2nd email(s) is sent, they will be removed from the list. Upon return to the forums, they can request to be placed back on the list if still interested. While an item is currently on offer, someone needs to claim it before other gifts are offered. There is a 48 hour time limit to claim an offer once you have been notified that you are at the top of the list.

    To keep the thread moving along without misunderstandings, please make sure to post the next offer at the bottom of each post so everyone knows what's available.

    In the case that you claim an offer as a giftee and it does not work for you for any reason, you are expected to offer it again as a new RAOK item so someone else on the current list can enjoy it. Items gifted in this thread should not appear on the swap board as items to be sold/traded. This practice would strongly discourage potential gifters, whom we solely rely on to keep the thread thriving.

    THREAD RULES:

    Let's treat each other with kindness and respect. Once you claim a toy, PM the gifter with your address so they can mail it to you. Some international gifters may indicate they expect the costs of shipping to be split, others may not. At times, shipping will not be included with particular offers.

    Once you receive your gift, you are expected to post an action shot of your new lovely in the thread. You may also leave a positive itrader rating for your gifter. Remember that posting an action shot acknowledges you have received your gift and produces warm and fuzzies when your benefactor sees how good it looks on you and that you will put it to good use. You will be reminded twice to post an action shot in case that you forget. Your name may be removed from the RAOK list permanently if we do not hear back from you after all reminders have been exhausted.

    If you are anticipating long stints of time away from the forum or an emergency comes up, please let us know so we can work something out. The goal here is to not send the message to any of our benefactors that their gift is not appreciated.

    This thread is kept going through the generosity and goodwill of all LHC gifters so if for some reason your hairtoy gets lost in the mail or is damaged during shipping, please remember it was sent to you with the best of intentions, but sometimes...life just happens. Please keep in mind that at times there may be long waits in between offers. Other than these particulars, have fun!

    __________________________________________________

    GIFTING ON THE RAOK THREAD:

    If you wish to offer a toy, please pm me and meteor and be specific about your offer (the item(s) you are gifting, if the offer should be listed as US only, or if you'd like to cover shipping, or split international costs). You will then be informed when to proceed to post your current offer. The giftee will PM you with their address once your item has been claimed by one of our members. Thanks in advance for your generosity...you rock!!!

    Please keep in mind that at times an offer may go unclaimed for some time. It does not mean no one wants your offer, just that the right member has not claimed it. Retracting an offer once it has gone up to be claimed goes against the core spirit of this forum and is grounds for negative feedback.


    GIFTER ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS LIST:

    meteor has been kind enough to update the list of all members who have received and gifted RAOKs. Our very sincere and boundless gratitude to anyone gifting on this thread

    ___________________________

    CURRENT OFFER:

    No new offers at this time, please check back in later!

    For Gifters - We are currently accepting new offers. Please pm DweamGoiL prior to posting any offers just to ensure we are at the ready to notify the next person on the list on your behalf. You may post your offer directly on the thread or contact meteor or myself for guidelines on what language to use to map out your offer and its logistics.

    The awesomely magnanimous katana, Groovy Granny, and rags have sent me boxes full of all sorts of hairtoys as gifts for this thread. A part of these toys will be held as reserve items for the times when donation numbers drop.

    Default Re: RAOK List from Pay It Forward Swap

    Just a thought... but wouldn't it be easier to offer up all the pay it forward (PIF) swap items one by one in separate posts?

    This is not meant to be a thread, really. I just listed the one toy that is up right now because originally it was 2 together, but one person got gifted one of them, leaving the other up for grabs. This is just mean to be a list people can reference if they have a toy they want to give away to another person that is starting out their collection.

    Oh, I was not criticizing your list, I think it's a great idea. Just the other thread is a little (no a lot) confusing. And I was wondering if maybe separate threads for each item wasn't the way to go.

    I tried to quote and gave up after 15 minutes of waiting and it just proved my point...

    This forum is so laggy/unstable that having a new thread for every item being offered when we cannot delete them or edit the title would make it worse. The thread may get a bit confusing at times but someone steps in and gets it sorted/explained and the putting at the bottom of posts what is up next is helping. Once people get the hang of it it goes smoother, I've seen this same thing on other forums and after a week or so it goes well.

    The list will actually help that thread keep moving, I believe. Because someone can claim a toy from the PIForward thread in the name of one of the people on this list, offer up their own toy, and keep it rolling along!

    I didn't take it that way at all, Lapushka...no worries! I appreciate your suggestion

    The Ead stick has been claimed by ExpectoPatronum. There is nothing up for RAOK right now.

    You're very welcome, but there are a lot of members to thank; Quasi for the swap itself and all those that started the RAOK element of it
