Arc.

Put my name in the hat, sir.

I am in no hurry, life will bring me what it will in it's time and as it chooses.

Me? I'm just happy it lets me along for the journey.

Smile

Thanks.

Please count on/count me in. Guessing what’s in the box sounds like fun, thinking of what to pass along is even more entertaining!

I'll get to it when I can, guys. This should be an exercise in patience and goodwill, none of us are actually inconvenienced by not having a box of random free things.

If you want to participate, wonderful. If you're in a hurry, this isn't for you.

What I've got is the original box, split in two, and I've added curiosities for from my travels, and also some items of interest that Horse sent me.

I'll get to it, have no fear. But what needs to cease is comments, certainly attitudes, that this needs to happen at any given speed. No one is owed the contents of these boxes, and if you believe it has "stalled," take care to not come off like someone owes you something when you wonder where the boxes are.

If you're the current recipient of a box, would you like to feel some sort of deadline? I know I'm not looking for extra stress.

Members who participate, should "curate" the box they receive. Take from it, surely, but don't mail the next guy garbage.

If this is to succeed or fail, it depends entirely on the conduct of the group.

Don't make me make a sad face.


Arc.

Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast.

A wizard arrives precisely when he means to.

Reconcile it however you like, but kindly, don't poke the bear. The bear is busy.

Dear Bear, sorry you feel. Poked. No one owes me anything. I've worked for what I have. Not looking for a fight or to get the ban from here either. Good luck with the new job.

This isn't about me. It's about the ability of this practice to continue in this community. I do believe you've missed my point by well beyond a country mile. Do me the courtesy of staying out of this thread.

Arc, please add me to the roster. I believe I have a unique item to add, my email is in my profile, there is no rush all good things come to those who wait, and I agree to all additional criteria stated or not.

Thank you. Always fun when mystery arrives. Wink

Put my name back into the hat, I’ve got an item or two that would fit nicely into the box.

Two large flat rate Priority Mail boxes are going out this weekend.

Everyone who has entered thusfar is on the list, and will get an email when it is their time.

When Box A and Box B lists are exhausted, a new thread will be posted for the next group to sign up to get the box.

Mystery Boxes are away.

You'll be contacted directly if you're next.

When the last stop of each box is reached, a new thread for participants will appear.

Wait til that thread, to enter for participation.

Everyone who posted to this point is in queue.

There is some cool stuff in those boxes. Enjoy.

Arc, thank you for doing this. I suspect having a new job must be keeping you busy. Your help is appreciated.

Remember guys, take whatever you and yours can use from the box, it's OK to take more than you give, go with your gut.

It encourages churn in the contents.

When the boxes reach their last stop, those folks will post threads. Don't nobody be in no rush, now, as there is a list that went with each box, and that list will get checked off.

You'll get an email with "Mystery Box" in the title.

Exactly when, is part of the Mystery.

Thanks for curating & getting this going again.
Like Christmas in April when the first box hit my doorstep, took a couple days to go through it all.

Yes, I would encourage anyone receiving a box to unpack the whole thing.

Hey, in case that was unclear..

The Mystery Box got a bit mired in some sort of mix of impatience or entitlement, or just sour attitude, all over a box of free stuff.

If people can't relax and be cool about the box, it won't continue into the future. That's all.

Sorry if my phrasing raised your hackles, but I was trying to be clear that what happened in the previous Mystery Box threads can't continue if the box is going to.

I'm not on a "power trip." I just spent my own time and money so this Mystery Box could continue, and I wouldn't want to see it wasted by a return to the sour attitudes from the past.

The Mystery Box has no schedule, and no one should be in a rush to receive it, or should worry about what's in it. It's a curiosity and a box of collective goodwill. If I sound peeved when people appear selfish/impatient/ungrateful over it, well, I'm human.
