    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Sounds like a good idea, but I don't think I have ties that has "equal or greater value"

    Well I'm collating the interested parties at the moment - we need someone to donate a few ties. I'm throwing in 8 ties which will be a mixture of PZ and Marinella / RL.

    So far I have:

    1) Myself
    2) IchDien
    3) UncleCozy
    4) TTO (pending mustering)
    5) Barims (pending rummaging)
    6) freedom_fries
    7) davesmith (pending global relocation)
    8) B|aze (I think?)
    9) Big Bird

    Malford, you need to take all the participant's locations and map out the fastest shipping route.

    Well postage in Europe is pretty much the same from country to country. We don't have enough ties to start with so the box goes to those that are donating first.

    Can everyone forward me their address and details please :)

    It's not to save on postage, it's to keep the box moving from person to person as fast as possible. For example from box #1:

    Yes - as I said - the time it takes from country to country in Europe is pretty much standard across the board.

    if we had enough takers / donaters in the UK to begin with - it would go this route first. Unfotunately there aren't that many ties to begin with so I'll ship it to Venice so that Ich_Dien can donate a couple of ties to help get the ball rolling.
