Instructables has sent me a card! Answered

 I got a message saying it's been sent! Hooray!
I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like!


Ok,  here's mine, it arrived today :-)   And the look on my face is NOT indicitive of how I felt at receiving the card, but more because I had to reach and stretch with my one finger soooo far to press the shutter release (while still trying to hold the camera steady.....I keep forgetting I have a tripod now *sigh*)

I didn't get a PM about it, but mine came yesterday. :)

(yay for poopy webcam pics!)

WOW, the perspective of the camera makes that look nearly Poster sized :-) <div id="refHTML"> </div>

Hahaha, sorry, was trying to avoid getting my face in there. :P

:( Because all of the junk you've gotten in the past?

>picks up shotfun<

More because I had a migraine and had spent the previous night puking my guts out, actually, but avoiding it for that reason also makes sense, I suppose. :P

but, but, your avatar has you face in it.... ;-) <div id="refHTML"> </div>

But it's also a picture from the instructable that needs all the traffic it can get! ;)

understood :-) At this point, I am slowly coming back into focus (as my avatar plainly shows ;-) <div id="refHTML"> </div>

Awwww. :(

Well, please don't avoid it for that reason - it's pretty darned ridiculous if we've reached the point where harassment runs that rampant.

SHHHH! The back is the important part, and I ain't showing none of that, so you shhhhh!



Maybe it is the math proof that Christmas = Halloween? ;-) <div id="refHTML"> </div>

NEIN ! Anything with Instructables in it is important. So ha.

Because you had already won stuff, probably.

No, I got indication that I will be receiving one, and I hadn't won anything (for quite awhile now; my projects haven't really been up to snuff). <div id="refHTML"> </div>

<extreme jealousy> What exactly did you do to get a card? And how did I miss out on this opportunity?!? </extreme jealousy>

I really don't know, as I heard that Kiteman didn't get a card.

Maybe they've already got my house bugged in the stuff I've won they already know my demographic.

Yes,  I think what he was inferring was that they already knew his address.

It's just to collect addresses, not to sincerely thank us and wish us a happy Halloween?

I meant that's why some peoplel didn't get the e-mail.

Since they're being signed by hand, by Eric, I think the latter.

I reckon it's a way of showing appreciation to contributors who haven't won stuff.

Well, as Eric wrote in the Sister Forum topic: <a href="https://www.instructables.com/community/Instructables-Halloween-Postcards/"> Instructables Halloween Cards</a><br /> <em>We sent them to top authors by number of Instructables, by page-views, 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, .... </em> <h3 style="color: Red;">(see Forum link above<em>)</em></h3> <div id="refHTML"> </div>

I believe the delivery robot is going by sea, so it may take a bit longer!  Hopefully he's not devoured by a giant squid on the way.

There's be a delay thanks to this week's two-day postal strike... :-(

a 2 day strike? Around here, the obsolete labor unions rarely strike for only 2 days. I wouldn't be so worried about it being eaten by a squid though, maybe one of those <em>card sharks</em> might get it though ;-) <div id="refHTML"> </div>

yeah, we're in the underpaid and old category.

I'm WAY underpayed and somewhat old....of course, mine is on it's way I have just been informed...<br /> <div id="refHTML"> </div>

I got one to!
I just got an email that says that they shipped it to me!  Yay!   
Can't Wait for it!

Be sure to scan yours so we can see if they're any different!

No, they're all the same. Sending different ones would be a bother.

Just be glad you got one!

I got mine at right when i was opening the card! lol

Invitation for...?

I was offered a card, but I didn't want a lecture as to why I shouldn't give "strangers" our address...

I had already won a Burning Questions, so my parents were cool with it...

Haha, yeah. Parents can be annoying that way...

I got mine yesterday! I absolutely loved it! It was a nice and simple gesture, but it really means a lot to me.

Thanks Instructables!
