    Deadline is Feb. 4 to put your hat in the ring and PM Tom Niemi your address. Don't be shy--I can guarantee your box will be better than the one I come up with!

    Bumping up.

    KaLea, with all due respect, I disagree. The only reason I look at "New Posts" is because I'm a Moderator and I try to read every new post in every thread every day. Before I was a Moderator, and when I will no longer be a Moderator, I did (and will) only read 3-4 forums regularly. I genuinely believe that the reason we have close to 30 people in this swap, including several new people is because we posted it all over the place.

    Perhaps a nifty idea, for those who do use that cool "new post" feature, would be to use a tag such as "cross posted" at the beginning of the duplicate or informational posts directing members to a post in another area. Doing such could prevent members from getting frustrated or annoyed reading about the same thing in different places, and avoid confusion (as we have seen with pen blank swaps in the past).
    Kalea, read Jim post, I rest my case.

    Oh and are you insinuating that Jim's intellegence level is low.
