    Continuous Random Round Robins - 11

    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 if you want to let everyone one know and send me a pm so I can make it official by changing the list. 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.

    To keep cards from being sent to inactive players I will move you to the HOMERS ONLY section of the address list if you have been inactive on the site for a month. Once you become active again you can pm me and ask to be placed back into active status.

    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 remember to look at the most current list 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.

    Feel free to post eye candy whenever you want. Part of the fun of being in a Round Robin is seeing who is doing what. You can post them when you get them before you add anything, after you have added something or when you get a completed set. If you don't have a scanner or are not sure how to post them it is ok. Posting is not a requirement to join and have fun. There are 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.

    And last but not least…………

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

    I thought my crrr box was pretty much empty, but it's not! I have several envelopes with homers that still need to be filled before mailing. Could use some starters CRRRers.

    Just lurking with questions.
    How do I know who to send cards to? Just anyone on the first list? What keeps one player from getting swamped with cards while others get none?
    As usual, I'm nervous about trying something new. I'll watch for a while before jumping in, lol.

    Well, technically, it's random, which means you can send to anyone on the first list. However, we do have some preferences, i.e. things we particularly like or dislike, so that might help decide who to send to. Also, sometimes people offer up sets they have, and others claim them (you don't have to, but we often do). And sometimes people will mention that they are short on sets to work on, so that's always a good sign to send stuff to them.

    Also, there's no pressure to get to stuff ultra quickly - a lot of us, given the way our busy lives work, tend to work in batches - I might not have time for a couple of weeks, but then I'll do quite a few sets at once and send them along.

    After you've been playing a while and have homer sets coming back to you or finishing sets coming to you, you might send new things on to people who you have to mail to anyway. This is especially true for me, with overseas postage - I try to make the most of my postage, so if you aren't on homers and I have a card to send you, I'll probably also send you a set of thirds and a set of seconds, if you see what I mean.

    I've been here a long time so I tend to have a good idea of what sort of thing would really appeal to some of the other longer term players, so that affects my decisions about who to send what to. (And likewise, other longer term players know I like stuff with text and mermaids and black birds and things with postage stamps and Hallowe'en and stuff with lots of layers and shaped cards and etc etc etc, so I often get stuff that fits that bill. But not always.)

    And of course, if you are really swamped and feel guilty about it, you can always go on homers only for a while.

    But ultimately, that's all what we TEND to do, rather than what you HAVE to do. Ultimately, it's random, so that's the risk you take when you join in.

    And also, I should mention, it's fun.

    I have never felt swamped with cards, It seems Just right. I also try to mix up the starters that I send out. I try to start at the bottom of the list with Vicky when I can so she doesnt get neglected. Then next time I start in the middle of the list. And I try to mix in a few International players so they dont feel neglected.

    Two more questions.
    Once I make a set of starters and decide who I want to send them to I then PM xstitcher for their address, right?
    And where do I find out which themes they don't want? I don't see anyone saying what they don't want.
    Hopefully, that will take care of my questions.

    No, once you sign up xtitcher will pm you list of the players address and likes and dislikes and stuff. Once you join she will add you to the list and we will all get a new updated list.

    In general most of my starters are blank slates that could go in any them or direction. I say in general. But sometimes I do know that a certain player would like this card.

    Thread 11, to think I started when we had two. I have a few sets to work on. I am in the process of trying to organize my entire house. This is an overwhelming task. I am an empty nester now and though without anyone to mess anything up this would be easy, wrong so wrong. My daughter and son says, " go through my stuff. You know what I would want." Well that comment would be a negative. None of us are Susie Homemaker to begin with. RR keep me saine. Hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Be careful getting rid of your kids' stuff. I had several items (framed pastel drawings, a embroidery samper, etc.) made by deceased relatives that I'd had since childhood, that for some far-out reason my mother got rid of---I am still not happy about it, some twenty years after finding out they are gone! Just saying.....
