Bingo for new members 2020 – looking for new host

Welcome!

This Bingo is for everyone who joined Postcrossing in 2020.

You can get a BINGO by
× sending postcards to 30 (40/50/…) different countries
× and by recieving postcards from 30 (40/50/…) different countries.
When someone gets a Bingo, every player sends a congratulatory postcard. :partying_face:

I am looking for a new host for this bingo. If anyone is interested, send me a message!

RULES (click me!)

Only official cards sent on the main site postcrossing.com count. Forum swaps and travelling or expired cards don’t count!

In your first post in this thread, make two lists with all sent and received cards which you already have. Only one card per country, please. If none have arrived yet, write that!
Include a link to each postcard so that we can check whether everyone is playing fair :wink:
It doesn’t matter whether you upload a photo or not.

Please update your lists by editing your first post! This keeps the thread neat and makes it easier for me and everyone else to follow.
Also write the date of your update in the first post so that I can see who is still interested in this Bingo. Even if you don’t have any new countries to add, you should still update now and again. If you don’t update your list for 6 months, then I am going to assume that you don’t want to continue this game and remove you from the stats. But of course, you can always return.
You can check whether you are up-to-date by looking at your stats and removing the tick mark of either the sent or received cards. The sum of all countries will be displayed in a list at the bottom.
It would be nice of you to write a post when you add new countries.

When you have a BINGO, congratulations! Write it here and I am going to send you a u2u asking for your address to distribute it among the other players.

When you already have or when you reach 30 countries, you can then aim for the new milestones 40/50/60/70…
You will not receive cards for bingo milestones that you reached before you joined this bingo.
You also don’t have to send any cards to anyone who had a bingo before you joined the game.

Good luck everyone! :cowboy_hat_face:

For new members in this forum

You have to reach trust level 2 in order to be able to edit your posts after 48 hours. Allegedly, it only takes around two weeks to be promoted to Member if you “continue to visit the forum now and then, reading and posting.” In the meanwhile, if you still want to update, please post the whole list in a new post.
You can learn more about trust levels here: https://blog.discourse.org/2018/06/understanding-discourse-trust-levels/

How To Make Links

To get the URL: go to your page with sent/received cards. Move your cursor to the ID, right-click and select ‘copy-url’.
In this shiny new forum, you can also just write the postcard ID and a link to the wall will automatically be created like this: LV-346289
Alas, this doesn’t work for hyperlinks like this, then you have to write the whole URL:
[Latvia](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/LV-346289)
BECOMES
Latvia

How To Make Lists

There are many different ways to keep your countries up-to-date and tidy!

@Norway_girl made a guide how to create tables here: How to create tables in a bingo post

For this Bingo, I personally recommend to either keep your list in a separate spreadsheet and copy and paste the table into your post or to use the numbered list function of this new forum. But you can do whatever works best for you! Important is that you include every country only once in each list/table, include a count and links for every country.

How the numbered list works

You can order your countries alphabetically, e.g. like this:
[Germany](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-9663158)
[Japan](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/JP-1429172)
[Ukraine](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/UA-1766814)

Which will look like this:
Germany
Japan
Ukraine

If you now mark the whole list and hit this button Bildschirmfoto 2020-10-23 um 14.35.25, it will automatically be numbered:

  1. Germany
  2. Japan
  3. Ukraine

If you mark the whole list again and hit the same button, the numbers will vanish again. This is useful because you can just unnumber the list before you edit your post and number it again afterwards and all numbers will be in the correct order.

1. [Germany](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-9663158)
2. [Japan](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/JP-1429172)
3. [Ukraine](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/UA-1766814)

  1. Germany
  2. Japan
  3. Ukraine

BECOMES (by unnumbering the list)

[Germany](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-9663158)
[Japan](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/JP-1429172)
[Ukraine](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/UA-1766814)
Germany
Japan
Ukraine

BECOMES (by adding a new country)

[Germany](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-9663158)
[Japan](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/JP-1429172)
[Russia](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/RU-7719651)
[Ukraine](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/UA-1766814)
Germany
Japan
Russia
Ukraine

BECOMES (by numbering the list again)

1. [Germany](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-9663158)
2. [Japan](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/JP-1429172)
3. [Russia](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/RU-7719651)
4. [Ukraine](https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/UA-1766814)

:sweat_smile: This forum is awesome and has endless possibilities but you definitely need some time to get used to everything… Thanks for the vote!
