    Okay, so it looks like things are gonna get going again - but this time as a new box. I'll post the rules tomorrow, but as far as being included there are only 3 requirements.

    As of the time of this post (August 27th), you must:
    1. Have been a member of VU for at least 2 months
    2. Have at least 50 posts
    3. Have at least one positive trade rating, and no negative ratings
    The one exception to rule #3 is that if you have no trade rating, then a current member of the PIF box must vouch for you. There are no other exceptions. If you don't meet the requirements, please don't ask me to bend the rules. I'm quite sure you're perfectly honest, but many people aren't and there's no way to tell which is which. Hence, we need to stick to the above criteria to be included in the rounds.

    CLICK HERE for the ePIFany Box rules and guidelines. They're basically the same as the other PIF boxes that we've done here before, with minor changes. If it an't broke, don't fix it.

    Current roster (limited to 20 members). Please PM me with your shipping info when I add you to the list.

    TENTATIVE RULES


    The rules and guidelines are incomplete but here's what we have so far. They may change as the need arises.



    RULES:
    1. Pictures of what you’re taking/adding are required. Post the pics of the items you'd like to add/remove to this thread for "approval" and wait for AT LEAST 3 "likes" before shipping the box.
    2. A checklist will be included to mark what you've taken/added. This is also required.
    3. No juice and/or liquids of any kind. Period.
    4. No loose batteries of any kind. Lipo batteries included with mods are acceptable.
    5. This box is for MEMBERS ONLY. Please do not grab items for friends and family.
    6. No calling “dibs”. This makes it difficult for others who receive the box first who already wanted a particular item, but just didn’t voice their desire. More cool stuff will be added before the box gets to you.
    7. This version of the ePIFany box is only open to members that live in an area of the U.S. (and it’s territories) that can receive the standard USPS Flat Rate Priority box.



    GUIDELINES:

    1. Think of it like this - the first donation to the box is an entry fee or a show of faith if you will so the people at the beginning have some cool stuff to look through. I’ve already personally added a buttload of stuff to get it started, but your donations are needed also to complete the initial offerings. As soon as the initial donations are complete, I will send out the box.

    The second time you add/remove from the box is an honor system based barter.

    Only take what you can replace with an item of equal(-ish) or greater value. (*Refer to rules 1&2.)

    You may take multiple items as long as they're replaced accordingly.


    2. You can hold the box for two days. I doubt we'll be hardasses about this because we realize that life (and shit) happens but one of our goals is to keep the box moving at a steady pace.

    3. Please be courteous and clean your gear before adding it.

    4. Keep in mind that we do have some newer members/newer vapers and we're all in this to have fun, make some new friends and try some new stuff.

    This only works if we all do our part to ensure that everyone has a good time and gets some new stuff.

    With that being said, if you see someone that wants that shiny new RDA but can only spare a couple yards of wick or something minor then please use your best judgment before you say no to their offering(s). This is a PIF (Pay It Forward) box after all.



    I will be creating a punch list of everything in the original box with room to mark your names next to what you take and room to write in what you've added (required).

    Posting pics of what you take/add in the thread will be required as sort of a confirmation. We ask that whoever has the box get at least 3-5 "likes" before packing it all back up and shipping it out.

    If someone decides to be an asshat and jack the box, there’s not much we can do about it but I assure you that they won't be included in the next round. They'll also be "called out" on other vaping forums, as well as any Facebook groups as a known scammer. I'd like to imagine that we're all good people but only time will tell I 'spose. If you’re not sure you can afford to send the box to the next person, please don’t ask to join.

    Since we're going priority mail, I believe the USPS rules and regs prohibit the inclusion of loose 18650 cells... correct me if I'm wrong...

    Just Kidding.

    Nice start!

    I have a road trip to make tomorrow, and I'm in prep mode today. I'll post what I am seeding the box with tomorrow.

    Considering I was in the first round and have bought things from people here I thought that was good but ok.

    When do we need to send in initial donations? What kind of stuff are you looking for? I've got a couple spares laying around, but nothing real extravagant.

    This box still isn't finalized as far as if it's gonna happen or not. It's been slow to start. I don't want to accept the first few donations until we know it's actually gonna happen. So far, only 5 people have given their shipping addresses.

    Done! :D

    Well, it's been 3 weeks, and only half of the slots have been filled. I'm sorry to have to say this, but I'm gonna shut it down. I guess a few bad apples have made other people too "gun shy" to want to join in. Sad, really.

    On the up side, I'm glad I decided to hold off on accepting any initial donations to get the box started. But I figured with the approximately $400 worth of stuff I was personally adding to it to get it started that it would work. Oh well.

    Yep. What a shame. I thought you had a good idea including the trade ratings.

    I didn't even know about yours, ,, but to be honest,, my 'donations' wouldn't be near the quality/value you started the box with...........you are super generous (and trusting!) the last PIF I was involved with had members who didn't value the other people or the spirit of the PIF..... they would disappear and lurk (yes we could see them) ,, they held the box for several weeks at a time..,, then it became a chronic problem there after,,, we never made it through 1 complete cycle. I wont be part of any PIF that the offenders ever join. anyway,, I hope you find a group of people to have a fun 'go of it' soon :)

    This would be cool to get up and going again. I did just pif a bunch of stuff. But this sounds like a fun idea to try new stuff.

    Nope. It's dead. Of course, you can put one together if you like. Maybe you'll have better results. Enough time has passed that there may well be enough interest to do one now.
