But why would you need to print all these things, when you can just write them, like it is traditionally done on postcards? And why would you add so much to the address, so that the cards will end up lost? (assuming you are not cutting and pasting on different parts of the card).
If people want the date and username and you forget, it is not the end of the world, while it’s nice to do something the other person likes, you also can (and should, in my opinion) do things on your own term. Writing the date is totally natural for me and would not think of not doing it, writing the username is unnecessary for me as I explained in the other thread, so I will not do it unless I have a reason to do so.
I am always shocked when someone puts the ID near the address (printed or otherwise), aren’t these people worried that the machines will get confused, thinking it’s part of the address, and the card will be lost?
More than once, I thought the ID was missing, opened the form to ask for help from the admins to locate the ID, and as I was filling in the form and looking more closely at the card, realised that the ID was with the address (I wouldn’t examine the address side, I know my address, don’t care about stamps, and wouldn’t expect the ID to be there).
