  1. Rules of FALL RAOK:

    1. All applicants will be fully reviewed before acceptance.

    2. There is a 400 minimum number of posts and 4 month minimum with the forum to participate or if you have participated in a previous RAOK before and fulfilled you duties. Administrators will be looking for the following:

    a. # of posts in Coach forum to show you are an active Coach participant
    b. frequency of posting (do you disappear for weeks at a time, or are you posting regularly)
    c. previous history participating in Coach RAOK's (did you forget a gift, send them late, not post pictures, not respond to PM's, etc.)
    d. content of posts (1000 congrats does not equal participation in RAOK)
    e. MUST have posted a picture on tPF within previous month (so we can verify you do know how to post photos, etc.)

    3. You are required to post photos of each and every gift received. If your buddy decorates outside of the box, please take photos of packaging. Descriptions of gifts will no longer suffice. Pictures should be posted within 72 hours of receipt.

    4. Proof of mailing is required for gifts. This proof of mailing must be PMed to MM16 by the 15th of September. This can occur several ways:

    a. in the USA you can send priority mail and purchase delivery confirmation for .65. You can also send regular mail and purchase delivery confirmation.
    b. In Canada, you can mail parcels and get delivery confirmation for free (according to their website). For letters (i.e. if you were mailing only a gift card) you can send it registered mail and receive a tracking number. Cost is $7.95 including tracking.
    c. If mailing to US or Canada from USA or Canada...the customs form number is considered proof.
    d. If mailing in Europe to same country: Some form of tracking is required. I'm not 100% sure how it works overseas...and I didn't have time to check out each individual country.
    e. If mailing to another country in Europe, customs form number/receipt number will suffice.
    f. If sending someone something through the Internet (i.e. gift certificates, magazine subscriptions), please forward the confirmation email to me (minus any CC info, etc.)

    5. As a suggestion of a price limit, in the past people have spent ~$45-$65 for gifts. Homemade and thoughtful gifts are appreciated. Wouldn't you love a can of fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies?

    6. No vacationers. If you will be away from home for more than 1 week per month...don't sign up. Gifts have to be mailed and reveals posted in a timely manner as described above, and vacation plans may interfere.

    7. If you are purchasing something from
    eBay for your buddy, please make sure personally that it is in a suitable condition to be sent out as a gift.

    8. Administrator can remove someone from the RAOK for not following above rules.

    9. An ANGEL system will be in place for missing gifts/unresponsive buddy, etc. Please let Me or MM16 know via PM when you sign up if you would like to be part of the angel system, to send gifts to someone who has an unresponsive buddy.

    The deadline for signups in September 1st! and You need to mail out your package by September 15th!

    This RAOK will be one large package because we will be having a Holiday RAOK:nuts:

    Please PM me if you want to sign up.. Me and MM16 will be assigning buddies as soon as we start getting enough.

    Lets have FUN!!!:yahoo:
