Are you claiming the offer that’s up? It will be much too confusing if we have multiple offers on the table.

Cofftea said

chana, thanks for clarifying that. I was wondering how that’d work.

So does that mean you’re claiming AmazonV’s package?

Meghann M said

I"ve already claimed amazonv’s package, does that mean she’s claiming mine?

Cofftea said

Oops sorry, her double post thru me off. Yeah I think so. Or at least that’s the order it should go. I think to clarify we should post “I’ll claim _____’s package” before posting what we’re putting up.

Sorry to confuse everyone. I posted this after seeing the other initial posts of available tea packages, without looking to see if we were claiming at the same time as posting. This is still available!

I will follow the single linking chain; sorry for the confusion! Who’s next in the chain?

Nobody yet.

Are you claiming JustDuckyInNE’s package then?

Cofftea said

If we have several going on it’s just way too complicated. Person 1 offers something, Person 2 claims what Person 1 offers and offers something, Person 3 claims what person 2 offers and offers something… etc. think of it as a link chain. It took me a bit to catch on too:)

Doulton said

OK, offer deleted. Suitably admonished! I’ll start reading directions henceforward.

Cofftea said

Reading directions is always good, but you aren’t admonished. It is a lil confusing.

Cait select said

I don’t think it’s that complicated, as long as each chain stands in one thread. This way there’s more options, so the whole thing doesn’t stall out if one chain breaks!

…Although I’m a little biased, as I’d love to claim Doulton’s offer.

Cofftea said

Cait, I’d like chana to chime in since this was her idea, but it’s just my opinion that it should stay as one thread- but you and Doulton can do a swap:)

Cait select said

Perhaps I could interest you in a one-on-one swap then, Doulton?

chana said

Chiming in here. Yes, I think it’s less confusing if we keep a chain going in one thread. And it was a very good suggestion that one states clearly “I’m claiming X’s offer, and I’m offering this:…” That way we know what’s up for grabs.

If an offer stands a long time, perhaps the one offering it could make a change or addition to see if it appeals to more people? And if there’s something in an offer someone doesn’t like, s/he can always offer it later to someone else. :)

so who was the last to receive a package? should a new PIF thread be started?

i think you all are just really confusing… this … there are things deleted and questions of weather Someone is claiming something im so lost..

Sare that’s because this was three years ago, it took me awhile to read that, thinking there were going like hotcakes. If its to be started again yssah I think a new thread would be helpful.

This is an 11 month old thread so if this is something that interests you, it might be worth starting a new thread to see if there’s interest :)
