    Okay, I couldn't figure out how to delete the group, but it's been abandoned. I've made a generic group for pax east but I will post about that in a relevant thread.

    I'd love to participate if possible. I'm relatively new to the community and Prime 2013 was my first PAX, but I'm already planning my wagons east next Spring and I've made an effort to post more ... when might be the cutoff for these 15 posties? I'm sure I can think of some intelligent things to say somewhere around here... no hard feelings if I need to wait though!

    I put together an amazon wishlist this year since I was all over the place. I was rather confused by the whole system last year and became very last minute. I'm going to do this right this year...I'm also saving money being single this year so it works out! lol

    The crazy wacky times of the Holidays. It kinda saddens me that come New Years, I will intentionally-unintentionally ignore the threads until after East. It's okay, these little bobcats bring the Blue, the Red and the Goldenrod together under one mother-effin' hugantical roof of Holiday joys.

    Hey guys, just FYI, I`ll be going though the letters/signups very soon and update the list. I've been on vacation for the last week and haven't had time to look at the thread.

    Zeale, you're welcome to PM me to make your case, however I make no promises. My first priority is to make sure no one gets shafted on this exchange.

    I assume she'll update that once she goes through the stuff, yeah. Considering the last update to that list was on October 5th, I'd hazard that she just hasn't gotten to it yet.

    I see after I posted, the other post shows "LIST OF PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWED DIRECTIONS
    Last updated: Oct 3rd 5:45pm PST" I will check back there in a couple weeks.

    Yeah I don't post on the forums a bunch, generally not a forum guy, but I'm pretty deep involved in the community so I didn't think there would be an issue, if there is, I'll withdraw and leave it to the forumers.

    I can tell you right now you did not fill out the form correctly. You did not include your last name, city, state, or country.

    I have deleted your entry. Please fill it out again.

    Welp I now have a goal for next year. Reading the letters in the other post is making this Monday workday much better (new to these forums/2nd year PAX'er). Love the idea of adding a little 'weird' to the world, ha!

    There was no bombing, I promise. Unless bombing means not including USA on my form. I would hope multiple Seattle related forum posts, links to my twitter and zipcode clarify that yes, I am an American.

    welllll to be fair, someone shouldn't have to track down your forum history if you could just fill it out on the form ;) Also since this is an international forum, and the organizer isn't even in the US, I would think following the directions precisely would be good :)

  • SmallLadySmallLady Registered User regular
    @bombclancy You actually didn't include a city, state, zip or country in your first post.

    However I can confirm that I do have your full address now. Thank you. :)

    On that note, this is also a good time to remind everyone that we are an international forum. You may get paired up with someone not in your country. Be prepared for this eventuality and don't complain about shipping costs. What would be super awesome, if someone has some time on their hands, is if we could have some posts about the various laws regarding shipping gifts to the USA, Canada, The UK, and Australia (forgive me if you're from somewhere else, those the primary countries for this community).

    In addition, maybe some online retailers in each country that allow foreigners to make purchases to be shipped within that country? Something like an American shopping via the Canadian Amazon (if that's even a thing they can do).

    I have experience in shipping domestic and international. It all depends on the country and what is being shipped. I'd be more than happy to help anyone who isn't sure, or needs more info. :) I will also note, I do not claim to be an expert, and this only covers the common things that are shipped. Your local shipping company and country may have different rules than what I have found on the internet and export/import that I normally deal with. Always check with your shipping company and local post office.

    US Domestic
    Food must to be dry and and needs to reach the area unspoiled. If it causes a smell or gets open in travel, it is at risk of being shipped back to the shipper. Anything pressurized cannot be shipped via air and will be marked as hazard materials.

    Fancy tip, media mail is cheaper than regular mail, but only if you're only shipping media goodies! Something to look into if you're trying to cut down on shipping costs.

    The USPS publication for what is deemed hazardous and/or restricted can be found here.

    International
    Pay for tracking. Things can get held up in custom for days or even weeks. Know who you are shipping with, some shipping companies drop off packages to the local mailing service after it reaches the county.

    Gifts can also be deemed taxable in the country. It all depends on the country and the amount declared. Be sure to always declare it as a gift on your paperwork and labels.

    There are package restrictions in some countries. Again this varies from country. If you go over the restriction, they may charge a fee to ship or say no. If someone can provide me with a listing of countries people will be shipping to, I can create a quick list. (I can't picture anyone going above this limit, but you never know).

    Certain foods are not allowed in certain countries. I'd advise you to double check the local country's rules on this.

    Cert of Origin may be needed to clear customs. UPS and Fedex can provide this when asked. This depends on the value that is declared on the package. Again, you will have to refer to your local shipping company for details on this.

    I will be updating this when I remember things, and if asked. :)

    I just hope I get paired up without causing smallLady massive headaches this year.

  • SmallLadySmallLady Registered User regular
    Speaking of not causing me headaches, it may be a bit later that you guys get your matches. Work was crazy yesterday, and I'm not sure I'll have time tonight.
    BUT I PROMISE IT WILL GET DONE VERY SOON
