so, we are approved for kenny's tag. i'm putting the rules here and players list in the next post.
Lets play Tag ... Rules and Regulations:
1 - if you want to play, pm me (Jiffymouse) with your address and the statement "i agree to play by the rules of seed
tag". a valid email and/or phone number MUST be in the pm. i won't call unless you ask me to, or the tag "stalls" with you. this information WILL NOT go on the master list. if you believe i have your address/phone/email, you can skip it pending verification that i do have it.
2 - I will pm the master list of players and their addresses to each person on the list.
3 - initiating player sends out the first set of seeds
with the list of names. initiating player gets the last set of seeds
4 - cross off YOUR name when you get seeds
and put the same list in the envelope you send out.
5 - if you don't like or don't need the seeds
you get, you can pass them on to the next person. if you want them, please send a packet of quality seeds
6 - home grown
or commercial seeds
are fine, as long as there is a reasonable amout of seeds
in the packet and they are current (nothing you found in a drawer from 1987 )
7 - package the seeds
you send out properly. remember, sweet william and wonder egg (and seeds
of that size/shape) do fine in a plain envelope with just a paper towel for padding (39 cents for mailing) but seeds
like purple hyacinth bean and castor beans need a bubble envelope to make it safely.
8 - when you send seeds
out, post that they are out (ie "watch for a bubble envelope") and PM me the name of the person you sent to.
9 - seeds
MUST go out within 3 days of when you receive your seeds
(ie if you get your seeds
on tuesday, you should send the next seeds
out by friday). but, you don't have to wait the 3 days, the next day, or even the same day is fine with us!
10 - IF for any reason someone can't send the seeds
out, pm me and i'll pick up from that point, and go forward (i promise, i don't mind)
11 - if anyone puts something "extra" in the envelope, that is at their own discretion and in no way "obligates" the recipient to do the same (ie, if i put stickers or dodge puts 2 packs of seeds
, the person we send to doesn't have to do anything other than send a pack of seeds
to the next person)
12 - if someone sees us playing and would like to join in, we will take names for the next tag. however, it is the interested party to check to see when we are taking names. those on the waiting list will have priority for the next tag, provided they contact me in a timely manner when the next tag is announced.
13 - if we get members who would like to play but are not in the US or Canada, at this time, we are unable to accommodate that due to mail time. if we figure out a way to work that out, i'll let y'all know.
14 - members are subject being moved to later tags, or being dropped from tags without public notice. private notice will be at the administration's discretion.
15 - if i have forgotten anything or you have any more ideas, please let me know! AND i reserve the right to add to or modify the rules as appropriate.
have fun and lets play tag!
