Thread Details

July 12, 2010, 3:52 pm: System Notice: This thread content has been automatically archived from another thread which reached post limit, and will be preserved for reference and archival purposes. The discussion should continue in the original thread

If you require some information from the old thread, it is available for future reference, right here.

Please keep the side talk to a minimum.

This was originally a thread clothos1964 started to give away some free stuff that could be PM'd or mailed in a SASE, like codes or GC's or movie tickets or free product coupons.


There are now rules for the thread that are usually posted below. These rules are SD rules, as well as specific mod rules that may be updated or changed by them at any time and with additional rules added as they see fit, either posted here or in a regular post to the thread. These rules will be enforced by a mod if so desired, so please abide by them to keep the thread running smoothly with minimal trouble or arguments. Any complaints, suggestions, or questions about the thread should be addressed to a mod and not to me, as I merely started the thread but have no control over it's rules nor it's allowed content. Try to be generous, respectful, polite..... and have fun.

**************


SPECIFIC MOD RULES:
* All SD Rules apply to this thread
* Do not offer Referrals/Payment for items.
* Do not send/request money for shipping costs. This includes PayPal to cover "shipping" costs.
* Please use the PM system for all giveaways. Don't clutter the boards with replies.
* Do not use reputation points as part of a trade/payment. That's not what the system is here for.
* Anyone found using a duplicate account in order to trade offers & boost post counts will be banned!
* Please keep the off topic chit chat to a minimum
* If any problems arise, use the Mod Alert function to bring it to our attention

Please obtain permission from the Moderators before posting a beneficial giveaway.

In the past, people have abused another persons goodwill. I have seen members lie about problems in order to get money, as well as coupons & free items. As a moderator, I am here to protect the members as best as I can. And I don't want to see anyone taken advantage of again.

This is for giving away free stuff that could be private messaged or mailed in a SASE (codes, GC's, movie tickets, free product coupons, etc). DO NOT request codes, coupons, etc.

10/14/07 -
I have to ask you all, do not send money to people because of trades. I know that some people may not be able to cover shipping costs, but this is for everyone's safety.

There have been some really deceptive people on SD in the past. They have voiced a sad situation in their lives, and the good natured people of SD have tried to help them. This included sending money. With much investigation, a lot of these people's stories turned out to be fake. They took advantage of the nice people here.

I do not wish that to happen in this thread. So do not send any money to people. I don't see anything wrong with SASE, but no cash, paypal, etc.

added: this is a friendly request from the mods and some of the users in this thread. please keep the 'bumpings' of your contest to a minimum. some are super long and then with the new names added throughout the day, it can double its size of the post making it a 'scrolling-chore', so to speak. the regulars in this thread check it all the time so it's not that they will be missing anything if you forego a 'contest bump'.

or here's another suggestion....just hyperlink back to the original post describing the contest. no need to quote/reply the actual post.

this is just a request to be courteous to other users who are on dial-up or have a slower connection.


Thank you!

First of all, I hope that it's not against any rules to write this post. If it is, I'm sorry.

I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly thank the wonderful SD members who donated their Pogo 3-month membership wins to my cause. Many of you already know that I teach at a preschool for Special Kids. I took all of my Subway Scrabble Pogo 3-month membership wins and combined them with the generous donations from the following SD members:

PayItForward
Fatalis
blah956
Srsly
Magneto372
Myrage
Christine012674
lorirc
Tamikac23
Talija81
JackiendMike
Smidge1
zachw10
LongTimeLurker7
h438dlk34
Coyotezeye
gibbersome


To date, 28 Pogo accounts have been made for the parents of my Special Munchkins. ALL of these accounts are 6-month memberships, because many SD'ers donated more than one of their wins. Several people donated SIX wins. When one set of parents received their account information they had tears in their eyes. They even gave me a special message for the generous donor, which I happily passed along. They wished nothing but wonderful things for this person. The mom saw me the next day and said that it's nice to kick back and relax with a fun game, after her babes are asleep. It's a nice break from life's difficult journey.

So from the bottom of my heart and the hearts of those who received your gifts, thank you. Your generosity has touched many people.

P.S. I hope I didn't forget anyone. If I did, please let me know.
