Instructables Halloween Postcards Answered

Some people send Christmas greeting cards.  Since Halloween is our favorite holiday, we decided to send Halloween greeting cards.  About 1100 of them. 

Check out the pictures of signing, stuffing, applying postage, and mailing them.

We sent them to top authors by number of Instructables, by pageviews, top commentors, people who have previously won contests, and others.  Since we did all this by hand (and had a couple of snafus along the way!), if you didn't get one, that doesn't mean you're not awesome; it means we screwed up and forgot to ask for your address.  But, we'd still like to send you one!  So, if you'd like a Halloween card, and you haven't already entered your address, leave a comment here by Friday October 23 and I'll send you the link to submit your information.  If you have entered your address but haven't received your card, it's probably still on its way.

Happy Halloween!

This is the forum topic for Halloween 2009.  If you'd like a card for 2010, please see here: 2010 Halloween Postcards.

I got the same pm and email twice. And I filled in the first one. Does that mean you didn't get my first one or is it just a repeat to make sure I saw?

This is so cool. Oddly though I got the "let's have that address" first and then this. Oh well, It's all good.
Funny how a simple thing can mean so much. I appreciate this very largely 8-D. It makes me feel great!

Now I get this kind offer, ending to rattle me...

Instructables has been a very good place for me.
I find all kinds of stuff I like to make but don't know where to start.
It helps to not have to re-engineer the wheel.

For anyone else reading this, (the last 13 commenters missed it) please note this happened last year. This year's cards are on their way.
