[RR] North America Themes Round Robin [NA Themes]

North America Themes Round Robin (NA Themes RR)

GUIDELINES

  • Welcome to the new Round Robin in the NEW forums! Thanks to lrp124 for hosting previously.

  • Any members located in North America may join.

  • If you are new to the group please pm me with your address.

  • Post in the thread which group number you would like to sign up for; postcards sent must relate to the group theme.

  • Once a group fills up you will receive a PM of the group participants and their addresses.

  • You have two weeks to mail postcards from the time you receive group addresses.


Remember to write on your postcards: NA Themes RR or NA~T, Group #, and your forum user name.
For example, all of my cards will say NA~Themes, #500 Angeldreamer if the group # is 500
Do not abbreviate it to simply NARR as there is a RR already like that.


  • It is OK to send multiple cards to the same person in an envelope to save postage. If you would rather someone did NOT do this you may ask that I note that when I send out addresses.

  • Please post in the thread when you send your cards and once you receive cards and the user name you received from so that we can keep track.

  • Send only professionally published postcards. Ad/free cards or handmade cards are only allowed in groups specifically for that style.

  • New themes are always added so check back often. Have a theme suggestion? … post in the thread or pm me.

  • If you move please PM an updated address.

  • Have fun!

  • Flickr Group <~~~~~ to share photos of postcards you receive from the round robin.
    (I didn’t start the flikr group and know nothing on how to maintain it…one day I will look into digitizing my collection. I am sure I would love it, but it takes time I don’t have right now)

might be a while for everything to migrate, but really no reason for groups not to begin again :slight_smile: I will likely not do my holiday group for a while tho…it will get way too crazy.

Completely understandable. I’m glad we have a few months for the transition.

Last I heard from @MichelleW colors are gone now. I just moved my RR over and spent time reformatting it to use emojis instead of color. I think I’ll like the new system, but for now the adjustment is a bit rough. Luckily the old forum is still there for three months!

Thank you…I did the tutorial and didn’t see anything on changing the fonts and colors, but it is still html based… there has to be a way. I will ask my dad, he is a forum guru. I like the visual differentiation of colors and font sizes. Maybe I will have to use more border graphics or something. I don’t plan on switching the holiday forum for a while… it is way too chaotic. Maybe in January when the bulk of the chaos is passed.

Group #115

I received an Indian Paintbrush and Texas Bluebonnet card from angeldreamer! Thank you for it and for sharing your memories of 2015 with me. :slight_smile:

HI, I wanna join Group 116–Sunrise/Sunset and Group 117–Mountain views
THANK YOU

group 111–
janncady- cute heterochrome cat. My animals have probably saved my life more times than I can count. I will never be without at least one pet in my life!
femamerica13–greetings from San Francisco :slight_smile: I like your goal to use up what you have…then ask for more! lol

group 115- MeaganMS -- gorgeous artistic card of the milky way over a rock arch. I love the colors in this! You have great memories of 2015 and happy 5th anniversary of Postcrossing!

group 118-
femamerica13 – Cornish coastline town at dawn, looks so charming!
ellistrations --interesting aerial view over clear Hawaiian waters full of kayakers. I think we all wanted to be mermaids at one time…and still do most likely!
accentonhakes – a sand bar in the Dominican Republic that looks like it was perfectly placed for picnicking. I love having quick and easy meals to pull out of the freezer!

group 119 –
EverettGal -bird closeup- oh wow…a personal photo from Australia…yes, I have experience with those beggars and how insistent they can be about claiming one’s lunch! love this!
Yelena-- Hawaiian state bird, I never knew they had a native goose. I have only been in the Honolulu airport, twice…the trip over and back from Australia when I was an exchange student in high school. sad to say I have not kept up the traveling in the decades since.

updated. will get addresses out for the closed group as soon as I find where the new person’s address went. lol I know I saw it at some point!!
