10:06 pm - ANNOUNCEMENT: MAY SWAP IS OFF

alnedra
I really am very sorry. There are still many unresolved issues, so we are unable to go through with the swap. This is entirely my fault, please do accept my humble apologies.

We'll keep you all updated on when we can resume the swaps.

10:20 am - Monkeygifts Swap May 2007

alnedra
So, shall I call for a swap this May? To give any new monkeys time to sign up in LJ and this community, let's put the deadline in three weeks' time. That makes it the 24th of May. I will post the list of exchanges on the 25th. The deadline for sending out the gifts can be the following 25th of June, which should give everyone plenty of time.

7:45 pm - A New Monkeygifts?

alnedra
I was wondering if we could revive monkeygifts. Start afresh and on a clean slate, as it were. To give everyone a bit more of a breather, we might want to do it every two months instead of one? Just tossing out suggestions here at random (^_^)

6:25 pm - Redemption?

melinika
We last left MonkeyGifts almost two years ago with about half of us (myself included) owing gifts to other people.

Can we redeem ourselves and get back on track?

Who's up for a redemption round in April? It's Lent/Eastertime - so fitting.

I'd like to at least get the loose ends of owed gifts cleaned up if nothing else, although I've heard from some of the non-slackers among us that they want to play too. But I really want to get the ungiven gifts taken care of, primarily, if we did a redemption round.


...Thoughts? Ideas?

4:36 pm - Suggestion to revive Monkeygifts

alnedra
I saw Bookmooch on BoingBoing and thought, why not try this for a change? I realise lots of us are way behind on gifts, so why not make a new start with something small? Lots of paperbacks are small enough to be packed into a padded envelope, which saves a huge load on postage, and we don't even have to go out and buy something in particular. Of course, it would be a bit of a hit-and-miss thingy, as the books we get might not be what we want to read, but it might start some of us off another genre that we never considered before.

So how about it?
