:recycle: NO RESEND LIST :recycle:

Sometimes cards and letters get lost on their way around the world :airplane: this is sad but nobody’s fault (except for the postal services or the postcard monster :space_invader:).

Established members “no-resend” list
(established = frequent member, cards sent/received for at least 5 groups in the past)

The following members do not want other established members to resend if cards get lost:

:innocent: You do not have to resend to (but you can if you want to!):

  • Miss-Cynical (GER)
  • mynta (FI)
  • EricB (USA)
  • KeithA (USA)
  • clouisesz (USA)
  • AnthonyAlmeida (BRA)


  • Vintage specific and Retro groups consist of three participants
  • Vintage used/unused general groups have four participants (but close with three after 2 months)
  • Vintage Reprint groups have four participants
  • Vintage = antique cards older than 1959* though the older the better!
  • Retro = Cards that date between 1960 - 1990*
  • Vintage Reprints = new store-bought cards that depict vintage motifs
  • Vintage Reprint Ad Cards (Real postcards not Ad Cards)
  • Used cards = must be previously postmarked or stamped. Some will have written messages and some only the address.
  • Unused cards = Vintage or Retro cards that do not already have a message written on the back. You can treat it like any regular postcard and send without an envelope or you can leave it blank and send it in an envelope. Your choice. Take into consideration the age and condition of the card (and what sorting machines can do to your beautiful card on its journey).
  • RPCs = real photo postcards (antique!)
  • any card - you can sent Vintage, Retro or Reprints.

*If you don’t know what type of card you have - just make your best guess - if it’s old, we’ll love it!

My Postcrossing username is AnthonyAlmeida. In the old forum was AnthonyYnoh. I believe that in this new community my official site username will remain. Anyway, it’s me, old Anthony.

Hello good old Anthony :joy: and welcome onboard again!
Changes have been made according to your wishes.
Group #900 doesn’t even have a subject yet so I can’t list you here right now. Still waiting for suggestions from the community.
Otherwise we’ll make it a Christmas Group …

Hey you can like a post, i like that


woohooo, first group in the new forum!

:postbox: Group #874 is full and addresses have been sent! Have fun sending & receiving!

:new: Group opened: #902 - Vintage used/unused

:wrench: updated

Group #894 - from roxy
Brenda is thinking positive in these weird times, stating that it could have been even worse (like in WWII). That is definitely true, that’s why a lot of really old people are not that afraid of Covid-19 because they survived something even more sinister. Love the card too, food crate on a parachute! Reminds me of the “Rosinenbomber” (Raisin or candy bombers) of the allies that transported food and important goods to Berlin. The hint “buy wisely - cook carefully - use leftovers” is valid today as well. Thank you, Brenda! :heart:

Group 894
I have sent all cards today:)

And have received a great Halloween card from Miss Cynical! It’s nice to be back :grinning:

Group 872

A wonderful Clacton-on-Sea and Holland-on-sea beach card from Miss-Cynical.
I had to check that out: seems Holland-on-sea is a part of Clacton-on sea :slight_smile: . Never knew that. So Holland stays there on the island after Brexit i think. hahahahaha.
I love the card Astrid, and the cute Halloween RA card too!
Yes travelling is not recommended at the moment, and it will get worse, here at least: they advised against travelling for winter holidays too.
And the government has cancelled Sint Maarten (the dutch Halloween: children with lampions at the door an asking for candy) and Sinterklaas. (5 dec) too. Well at least advised against festivities. They fear to make to stoute statements: election is coming up in march.
But covid19 is rising fast here too, lots of people in my environment are getting infected. Things are not going well and B and I are more cautious then ever. .

In Germany as well, new restrictions from Angela today for at least till November. Let’s all be extra careful now! hugs
