    Good idea. I helped run "The Box" years ago on the old BMB. I helped with the second go-round. It worked well up until the 2nd or 3rd to last person. The Box disappeared after that. Having cell numbers would be great.

    Re: Box O' Goodies - Who Wants to Participate?

    If you guys dont mind I will; if we get a second run; to start the box from my end. Since I was the last one to have it before it went missing. If we collect cell numbers and all will like for a more senior member or a mod to keep that list.

    Just let me know. Also will like to have lance and bill be the first two stops of the new box.

    I think this device used to be called a phone; don't know anymore!

    I'm glad there is interest in doing this again and the idea of getting cell phone #'s seems like a good idea to me.

    Unfortunately, I put most of what I had for inserts, parallels, etc., that were not of particular significance to me into the first box to get the idea rolling. Since it has not made it back to me, I really don't have anything to start this off with again, so I would have to turn the reigns for this over to someone else.

    I'm still hopeful that Mike (isotopes4) will surface and has a very valid explanation for the delay, but that hope dwindles a bit with each passing day.

    Whoops! Missed this post. Mel, if you want to start if off, that would be wonderful! Hopefully you can find 10 guys to participate. I appreciate your thinking of me for an early stop on the next go round.

    Sucks that the honor system no longer works for some.
    But this always seems to happen, makes it 80% of the way and then someone disappears with the box.
    Cell phone number are a good idea, but will that really stop someone from running off with a box again?
    I say if someone is honest and wants to prove their trustworthiness, if you want to participate, you should be willing to send a check to an admin or moderator for say $100. That check gets cashed, funds put in an escrow type account, once you have received and mailed onto the next party, you get your funds sent back. I know this idea wont fly with most, but how else is someone going to be held truly liable to mail the package on?

    That wouldn't be a bad idea. It'd be easier to just paypal gift a mod the $100 or whatever the amout is before it starts. Once you're paid up, it begins and once the box makes it to you and onto the next guy, the mod refunds your paypal. Pretty simple. If you're honest and want to participate, I don't see why anyone would not want to do this. Pretty simple if you're not going to run off with the box lol

    Not everyone has $100 to pony up, plus, it wouldn't have covered the "sell value" of the box anyway. Personally, I don't have $100 drop in an escrow account for the next round. If you all decide to go that route, I respect that, but I will have to sit out.

    I also want to reiterate - I don't think Mike made off with the box of cards. Something went wrong and it wasn't theft. I'm almost certain of it. I just hope he will come back and fill us in at some point in the near future!

    Yes, I forget about the paypal gift option instead of a check, that makes 100% more sense.

    Bill, I dont think any of us are saying Mike took off with the box, but what is being said is it always seems to go this way, where it makes it 80% of the way and then disappears for whatever reason.
    My idea was merely a suggestion to keep people honest. Yes we can all say we are honest, but as we have seen plenty of times in the past, even the good sometimes take the bad road. Hurt that bad apple financially and I bet that box never disappears again.

    Re: Box O' Goodies - Who Wants to Participate?

    Really hoping this thing pops up in a mailbox...even without an explanation.

    Two weeks MIA is definitely more than a standard hospital stay, etc...so if it's not outright thievery it's a far more serious issue.
    Hello again.

    I hope the box shows back up I've been lurking on this thread and figured I'd chime in. Maybe I'm niave but I really can't believe someone would run off with the box. If the box does show up please let me know if the little individual packs I had labled for Lancemoutain and Bill are still there. It wasn't much but it was meant for you guys so I hope you get them. Hopefully we hear something soon.
