    Continuous Random Round Robins - 2

    If you think 3 heads are better than one when it comes to making ATCs this is the place for you.

    We are a fun group of ATC makers who like to spread the making of ATCs around to more than one person.

    Here is how to get started……………..

    First you sign up in the thread and tell us what themes you do not want so I can add your name to the list in the 1st post.

    Next you PM your mailing address and any dislikes to me so I can add it to the address list. I will update this list as players come and go or change their status.

    If you wish to take a break from playing at any time all you need to do is post in the thread and send me a pm. I will move you to the HOMERS ONLY section of the address list until you ask me to change it. This way you will still get any you have started that have been completed by others but you should not get any new ones. If you do get new ones, please let me know in a pm.

    And here is how a Round Robin works…………

    Player 1 starts it off by starting 3 cards. These cards need to be more than a preprinted background. Please put something on them. On the back please put ATCS FOR ALL RANDOM ROUND ROBIN or AFA RANDOM RR at the top (so we know where it came from as there are 2 round robin groups) along with at least your user name. Mail all 3 cards to Player 2.

    Player 2 will work on the cards. Add at least your user name to the back. Mail all 3 cards to Player 3.

    Player 3 will finish the cards. Add at least your user name to the back. Keep 1 card and mail the other 2 back to Player 1.

    Player 1 will keep 1 card and mail the other one to Player 2.

    VERY IMPORTANT ~ Please note you must look at the first post before sending cards to anyone to make sure they are still playing.

    EQUALLY IMPORTANT ~ Please check what cards a player DOES NOT WANT. Do not send unwanted themes to anyone as they must pay to send them on to someone else .

    If you get a set of cards and you have no idea what to do with them, just send them on to someone else.

    Part of the fun of being in a Round Robin is seeing who is doing what so when you receive a Round Robin and when you mail them out please try and remember to post here. Although there will be no Round Robin Police sent to visit if you don't! And you never have to say who you are sending to unless you want to.

    Feel free to post eye candy whenever you want.

    And last but not least…………

    iTraders are fun to give and get so please remember them. Once you have a completed card you can give them to both the other players.

    Hmm, there's probably a way to follow this thread without replying to a message in it, but I don't know what it is, so I think this is easiest!

    katelnorth, right above the first post is a box called "Thread Tools"; you click it, and then click the bottom option "Subscribe to the thread", then you have to confirm that yes, you do wanna subscribe, and then you're done.

    I have all the boxes checked. I hope that is what is wrong. I am having a difficult time figuring out if the boxes need checked or not checked and what ones. I didn't expect this sight to be this involved. Of course not being the sharpest crayon in the box doesn't help either.

    Adorable little kitties! Love those!

    I remember being overwhelmed on this site too. It seems so extensive and complicated at first. Eventually I found a few places that became regular "stops" for me. There's still a lot I miss though.

    Sorry I still can't pm you.

    Can you send a pm to Carole Cadek to ask for help? If you can't I will, just let me know.

    I've been lurking at the thread for quite a while now, and I really like the idea of a round robin! How would I go about it though? Would I just create three backgrounds and send them of randomly, or should I make arrangements with two other players first?

    MissCarryMary, first you need to PM xstitcher your address and likes/dislikes so she can add you to the address list - she sends that as a PM to all players, then.

    On the list, there are the regular players and the ones that are on "homers only" status right now, which means they don't want to get new RR sets right now.

    From the list of players not marked as homers only, you can just choose someone randomly as your second player, and that person then chooses the third player.
    The only thing you need to take into account is the dislikes of the players, apart from that you can just surprise them with your starter cards.

    Thanks for your quick reply! You've answered all my questions I'll send xstitcher a message and have a go at some backgrounds. This looks like such a fun group, can't wait to get started!

    Tonight I worked on adding something to my first set of cards received (haven't quite yet had a chance to start my own - a few other swap comittments to meet before I do that) - thought you might like to see - if not, look away now! I shan't say where they are going, but they are heading out in a day or two...
