I appreciate the comprehensive guide you layed out for us FNG's. I'm following along with Swissy's "Puppy Pass IV" right now and getting a feel for how they go so eventually i'll be prepared. Do guys ask before they post puts/takes? That's my only concern is not realizing what i'm really taking or trading out for. Suggestions? Thanks again...

Depends on the pass. The Corona pass is takes and puts pre-approved. This is pretty rare, though. Most times, once you have done your research to find out prices, you'll post your T&Ps in the thread for approval. If you ever have a question, contact the host of the pass via PM to get your answer.

Since I made a few mistakes, and I've seen several other new people asking about similar things, I thought I'd post a few quick notes about how to join your first pass. I know these things have been said elsewhere on the board, but I figured that if there was a thread right here among the "open passes" that it might catch the eyes of newbies eager to join who skipped over that other stuff. Posted Image

In general, if you want to join a pass, do this:

* Read the CP pass rules (link on home page) and ask around if you don't understand them.
* Read a few completed passes, to get an idea of how they go.
* If you liked that, you can read a few passes in progress to see some "live action" Posted Image
* Look at the original posting for an open pass, to see if there are any special rules. Ask the pass-owner if you don't understand them.
* Post around the board, and become "known" by a few people. It's considered gauche when a newbie's 1st post to this site is "can I join this pass?" (you know, like mine was Posted Image ) No one will get mad about it, but everyone's first reaction is "who are YOU?!", so you can save them the trouble of asking, and warm them up to the idea of you joining their pass by making some introductory posts, first. Everyone loves new people, but there have been problems in the past with folks busting in, joining a pass, then disappearing into the woodwork once they get the box -- the memories of such events makes some people nervous.
* E-mail the person starting the pass with your real name, CP name, and mailing address. BE SURE TO REMIND THEM WHICH PASS IT'S FOR. Some people are involved in more than one pass, not all of them on this board.
* Once you're in, be sure to stay in touch with the pass. Subscribe to the forum, or check it daily. LET FOLKS KNOW if you might not be around when the box comes your way. Usually, they can rearrange the order a bit to fit you in after your travels.
* For my passes, I added a rule that I think everyone should use: when it's almost your turn, check-in with the forum and post "I'm here and ready", so people know that you haven't left-town, or anything.
* Of course, you should post to the forum the following events: * Got the box, * Puts & Takes, * Mailed the box (with tracking #) -- half the fun of a pass is keeping an eye on the forum and watching the box travel around. Posted Image

I hope this proves helpful to folks new to CP.

I encourage others to add their thoughts, but please don't clutter this thread with "great idea" or "that's stupid" posts. If you have a critique and think I should revise this post in some way, please e-mail me privately, so we can work out the wording, then I'll edit the post -- that way, we'll save this thread from a lot of meta discussion.

Thanks!

Oh yeah, and WELCOME! :thumbs:

Pay no attention to the self-serving spammer who does nothing much more than bump threads hoping to get his shop info to the top of a forum.
