Sign Up! Head-fi's 2008 Christmas CD Exchange!

post #1 of 233
Thread Starter 
Sorry for the delay folks. I guess with running the headphone programme, dealing with the new job and having been burned last year on the exchange (of the 5 years I've run it - or is it six now? - I've been burned twice!) this has not been at the forefront of my mind.

Regardless, 'Tis the season and all that! So let us get on with it.

The rules are VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY simple.

Read that again: VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY simple.


Okay, there is 1 rule and 1 rule only this year:

1) If you agree to sign up, you are agreeing to SEND YOUR EXCHANGE PARTNER A GIFT BY CHRISTMAS!

See! How easy is that? I've compressed it down for the slow readers out there.

Seriously, with the problems we have experienced in the past, I figure this year, one rule, one sentence so that it makes it easy to remember.

Now then, how does one agree to this thing officially? POST IN THIS THREAD!

I will read this thread multiple times a day and update a list in this initial post. December 1st will be the official cut off date. That means after the 1st one is no longer guaranteed a partner. However, if we have stragglers, I'll accommodate so long as I have an even number.

Regarding shipping, I'll try to pair folks up on the same continent or better yet country if specified. Otherwise, I'm going to assume folks won't care who their partner is or where they are from.

This can be a very exciting exchange and an opportunity to get acquainted with a fellow member and ideally be exposed to some new and exciting music.

Historically, the expectation has been that one would send and receive a new CD or LP. I leave this up to the folks exchanging. However, given the price of CD's at places like Amazon for instance, I don't think it is much to ask to send out a new disc. This may amount to 18 bucks with shipping. If you seriously can't see yourself committing 18-25 bucks for this exchange, please don't sign up.

So Merry Christmas! Let the fun begin!

I can follow one rule so I qualify! Give me a partner, former partner (I was NOT one of the deadbeats who stiffed Zanth).
