    Here is the schedule for this round:

    January: sign-on
    February, March: print and mail
    April: breather

    OK, now the standard text, but please read on:

    As in the previous rounds, please signup by sending a PM to me containing your full name, address (including the country - this is an international exchange) and the number of cards you are able to send or say maximum for the maximum possible number of cards. You can also choose "ALL" you will still only receive the MAX number of cards but you will receive the complete list so you can share your work with everyone if you choose.

    As in the previous rounds, if you have been in the exchange for the last couple rounds and if your address is the same, you can sign on just with giving the number of cards here in the thread. No PM needed in this case.

    Important! As in the previous rounds I will post lists of participants in this thread every once in a while. If you signed in (or if you think so) please come back to this thread and check if your name is on the list. If the name should be on the list but is not, then let me know. Once the address lists are sent out early in October I can not do any changes. And also check for the number of cards behind your name.

    There are a couple threads with an introduction and FAQs (check the links in my sig). Just send me a PM or ask here if you have any questions.

    Please read on:

    As in the previous rounds, not all participants have been able to send out the cards. For whatever reasons, if you have not fulfilled your last rounds commitment, send your cards before you sign in for this round. Just be fair. (and drop a note in the last round comments to let us know you are okay)

    And as in the previous rounds, I am looking forward to this round.

    Now for those new to the postcard exchange, here is how it all works out.

    First: It is fun!

    Second: When registration is over, I will prepare address lists which I will PM to the participants. You will have to send a card to every address on that list and you should receive back a card from everyone on that list. So if you join in for e.g. 20 cards you will have to send 20 cards and you should receive 20 cards back.

    Third: Did I mention that it is fun? Where else can you receive cards from all over the world, different styles, different methods, different papers!

    I'll update my list tomorrow, don't wait for the final countdown. I hope all is well with everyone out there.

    If you use film you can play. No darkroom needed, yes you scan & print. Alternate print methods welcome.

    Just starting out? Here's a chance to share your work and get comments on the real thing AND get others work in return.

    Okay, I'll bite. This thing is way too addictive to skip a round. I was waiting for some first sightings of my round #33 cards, and I was thinking of skipping a round and work on constructing my permanent darkroom instead.

    But... it's way too addictive, so... I'm in for 15 cards this round. Same details as in round #33.

    MAX vs ALL?

    Hi George:

    I checked the Postcard Ex FAQ, and maybe missed it, but is there a difference between signing up for ALL or signing up for MAX?

    Thanks,

    Hi Speed, it may not be in the FAQ..

    MAX = Maximum PAIRS. You will get the biggest list we can make until we run out of pairs. This is the "send one" "get one" option. Often this is less the number of people participating.

    ALL = You will receive a list of everyone in this exchange but not everyone will receive your name. They will still receive their requested amount. This option lets you share with everyone.

    Hope this helps.
