Who Wants another Gift Exchange?! Answered


Awhile ago, there was an event called the gift exchange. This is where other members could exchange gifts to another member. Though, only people who had at least one featured instructable could exchange gifts. I think Instructables should bring this back (just in time for the holidays) but offer it to every one. Please, voice your opinion, and if you agree with me and would like to see another exchange please say so in the comments. Hopefully the instructables staff will take notice and give their people what they want!

Perhaps instead of a gift-giving, it could be a trade of skills. For example, we could open a forum topic, or similar, where users could post something they need done, but do not yet have the skills/tools to do it with. So I could post that I need something laser cut, and maybe someone with a laser cutter could cut me something, and if at all possible, I could do something for said person. It would require a lot of work by the staff, as well as some members, but just voicing an idea :)

Great idea! There is a lot of stuff that I can't do that I know other people have mastered. I'll make some calls...

Nice idea, but it was a lot of work for staff (Scoochmaroo), and I never did the gift I was promised in exchange.

Perhaps it could be organized by some members? Also, if it was planned by members, it could be good training for the possibility that they could become online staff (in charge of some things). Thanks for the comment.
