    Not to be a party pooper, but may be opening up a good chance of more heart break (SS's not getting sent) with so many new members. No offence to anyone, just a thought.

    <span class="postbody"><br>Good point... Its kind of sad that we have to worry about such things. Maybe, if someone doesnt send one, Onnod can burn his teddy <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>Or more likely, if a new member have to trade with an old and trusted member the newer of the two have to send first and wont get his sling until the other person has recieved the sling from him.</span>

    i think such a thing would work, but people might feel offended by this method. i would look around and see who joins, after we know who's in we could look at such "problems"<br><br>ps, i've got a new jetflame lighter so.....

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Yeah, hated to say it but thought it best be said. I like your idea. New folks shouldn't be offended . I'm sure any reasonable person would understand. If anyone doesn't like it they are free not to play along. It's freedom of choice.</span>

    i am not failure, i think he decides as he stardterd it, but i would say, give it a little time, so the less active members can join too, but that's only my oppinion

    I am in as well. I have some slingshotsthat I couldsend immediatelly, but that won't be fun. I would like to make one for this occassion -- and that takes time (I work slowly). So more time would be good.
