Welcome to the second annual Nectarine Holiday Card Exchange!

To sign up, please fill out this form. The deadline to sign up is November 11th, after which you can't edit your info. You can choose how many cards you'd like to send and thus how many you'll receive. You can request not to send cards across the ocean. Only the people who have you as a recipient will be able to see your address.

You're welcome to participate regardless of which, if any, holidays you celebrate this time of year. You do not need to buy anything except postage as this is not a gift exchange. Feel free to make, print, or otherwise get creative with your cards but this is not a requirement; store bought cards are also fine.

Requirements and Rules:
  • You must send a card or postcard to every recipient you are assigned.
  • Your card (or envelope) must legibly include your Nectarine handle somewhere.
  • Excepting for extenuating circumstances, your cards should be mailed no later than during December.
  • Please be kind and civil. (No hate mail, offensive or demeaning letters, etc.)

If circumstances prevent you from being able to send all your cards, please let me know. Feel free to ask questions here or message me privately about anything else related to this exchange; I will get back to you as soon as I am able. If I find anyone willfully violated the above rules, they will be banned from any future exchanges.

Finally, it's not required, but I would like it if people posted pictures of the cards they received, along with the handle of the sender, to this thread. This lets people see what was sent and helps senders know theirs arrived. Don't forget to remove or cover any personal information in photos, such as addresses, before posting. If you want to hold off photographing until you've received all of your cards, please know international cards could arrive after Christmas or in January. Therefore it might be nice to at least post the handles of the senders for the cards you've received.



FAQ

What do you mean by "holiday?"
"Holiday" here means officially recognized days of celebration such as Thanksgiving (US), Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day, New Years, etc. You can join this exchange regardless of what you believe, celebrate, or don't. In any case, I'm just using it as an abbreviation of "October to January part of the year."

How much do I need to write in the card?
As much or as little as you like. It doesn't have to be terribly profound. However I would hope you will write more than just your handle.

What do people who have me as a recipient get to see?
The address you entered, name (if included), and Nectarine handle.

When do I get my list of recipients?
If you bookmarked your submission page or wrote down your entry number, please check back with the entry form site on or after November 13th. If you forgot to to do either of those things, contact Starchaser privately.

What will you do with all the data (addresses, etc.) after the card exchange is over?
Please read the full privacy policy on the entry form site.

If you people who participated have feedback for next year, let me know so I can work on it. A few things I can think of:
  • Push notifications once assignments are made.
  • Checkboxes so people can note which cards they've done if they want.

I got my first Nectarine card from Mystra.





Came with a nice set of stamps and some nice artwork, printed on the envelope too.

Got rendered card, from STS-136:




It came with the instructions, too. I'm guessing POV-Ray or something similar that allows something so code-like.

Yes indeed, it's POV-Ray code to render the scene on the front

I got a card from Mirrorbird, but no camera on hand to post it yet...

Tezar, yes! That's from me!

People have been telling me I apparently forgot to sign most (or possibly all) of the Nectarine cards. Oh well. I'll have to be more careful next year.

Starchaser is making like Carl Sagan, baking apple pies from scratch! Yeah, I only knew it was you from the post stamp I think (and obviously the nature of the card was a strong hint).
