 SGF ROUND 6 - Starts in February

  1 2 3 4 5  ...   
Hello Ladies!!!

For those of you who haven�t heard, angelkisses is retiring from coordinating the SMF/SGF groups. I will be taking over the SGF group and BabyKay will be taking over the SMF group.

Round 5's reveal list will be posted soon (by angelkisses). Be sure to send out your final packages ASAP if you have not done so already.

Below is the survey for the 6th round of SGF. Can you believe this is the 6th round?!?!?! Try to fill in as much information as possible. It is easier to assign you when you have answered every question rather than writing "I don't know" or "I don't care". There are a couple of new rules and questions so please read through this entire post.

There will be a round of the Secret Mommy Friend(SMF) happening in the Baby on Board Forum. It�s up to you if you would like to be a part of that group instead or even both groups.

Also, if you would like to participate only as an angel (if someone cannot fulfill their duties for a month), please let me know.

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE post before submitting your survey!

If you would like to be part of this round, please send me your survey via email at weddingbellssgf@gmail.com. Please ensure that your subject line is in the following format:

SGF Survey - USER NAME

Below is the survey for this round of the SGF. Please fill it out as completely as you can - it's easier to assign people who have answered every question than those who have "I don't know" or "I don't care" as answers.

So without further ado...

How it works:

You will be assigned a fellow WBer as your Secret Girlfriend recipient. You will send them one card and one gift a month, for a commitment of five months (first month will be February, last month will be June). You will be given a code name under which to send these gifts, and you will use my address as the return address. You in turn will be assigned to someone else who will spoil you!

The rules:

1. You MUST meet your monthly commitment. Failure to do so will see you removed from the SGF group. If you are unable to meet your commitment for a given month, please PM me and we can work out getting an angel for your recipient for that month.

2. If you no longer wish to participate, please let me know as soon as possible. Do not abandon your SGF recipient. I can't stress this enough... I'm getting REALLY tired of people flaking on their recipients. Have the courtesy to let me know that you don't want to be involved anymore, rather than leaving your recipient hanging.

3. There is no monetary limit assigned to the gifts you send. If you can afford to send a $5 gift, send a $5 gift. If it's your SGF recipient's birthday or wedding, and you want to send something bigger, than you may do so. Remember - this is not a competition!

4. To join, you must have been signed up as a board member for at least 4 months, and have a minimum of 50 posts. In addition, you must remain active on the WB board during your time as a SGF - even if it just means checking your PMs once every couple days. If I can't get ahold of you, I may have to remove you from the group.

5. The SGF user account is for SGF correspondance only. Please do not use it to discuss personal issues or to flame other people. If it is abused, I will ask the mods / admin to delete the account.

6. If your SGF sends you something, you must post in the TY thread that you have received it!.

Not rules, but common courtesies :

1. If I send you a PM, please respond. I put read receipts on them, so I know if you're reading them and not answering!

2. If you send me a message regarding your SGF, please try to indicate what it is for in the subject line (i.e., "SGF AWOL?" or "Need Info for SGF" or "Dropping Out"). It makes life a little easier on me!

3. If your SGF is not holding up her end of the bargain, please please please let me know! I can't fix what I don't know about! This is really important!!! Don't wait until the end of the round!

***************************************************

The SGF questionnaire is below. Please cut and paste and send it to me in an email before January 20, 2010.

I will be assigning SGFs for a February 1st start. SGFs will be assigned according to geographic area (if requested), and by likes/dislikes.

If you have any comments, concerns or questions, just let me know!

****************************************************

Please cut and paste, and email your answers to me, with "SGF Survey" and your username in the subject line. (i.e., "SGF Survey - LadyTatiana"). Try to be as detailed as possible - it helps me assign you a good match!

*****************************************************

1. If you have participated before, please list your SGF recipients (the people you sent to):

2. Please list your previous SGF senders (the people you received from):

3. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your previous SGF senders? Would recommend them as a SGF for someone else?:

4. Please list your SGF code name from Round Four, and indicate whether you would like to keep this name or receive a new one. If you created a WB account for your code name last round and you are giving your code name up, please let me know the user name and password so I can assign the account to someone else:

5. Please indicate how much you plan on spending (per month) on your new SGF recipient:

6. Do you wish to have a SGF recipient close in geographic location (yes, no, don't care) - if yes, how close? (and please note - the more rounds we get into, this becomes a bit more difficult, since there are only a certain number of WBers in each geographic area):

7. Would you like a SGF who wants to chat (PMs, email, etc) (yes, no, don't care):

8. Do you want to be an angel SGF (adopt someone for a month because their SGF can't/hasn't met their monthly commitment):

9. Is there anyone you CAN'T send to (i.e., because they are a relative / good friend / married or engaged to your ex):

10. Is there anyone you WANT to send to (because they've done something to help you in the past or you'd like to get to know them better?) - don't be shy, you can tell me!:

Ooooh I�m definitely in again.

I just want to say to people considering joining, do not take the responsibility lightly. I got deserted for the last two months of this round and it was a total bummer.

On the positive side for those who haven�t done it, it�s a great way to meet fellow wb�ers and get real fun mail (not bills!) I loved spoiling my SGF!

Can�t wait for this round happydance

For cheap postage use an express post envelope from the post office. They are charged a flat rate so you can pack as much "weight/bulk" in there as possible! You can get the bubble express post envelopes so you can squeeze more in compared to the cardboard ones.

I have a quick question for you ladies. I've PMed Lady Tatiana but maybe some of you could help me.

I am very interested in getting involved with this round of the SGF. However, I live in Nunavut and the postage up here is a little (ok, a lot) more than in the rest of Canada. I know this and am ok with the fact that I will have to spend a little extra to send a gift to my SGF. However, how would you feel if you got me and then realized that the shipping for me would cost you a little more than if you got someone else?

As I have read here, I wouldn't want to be doing it without someone returning it for me. I don't want to join and then someone to feel that they were blindsided by the shipping cost.

I'm still on the fence about participating this time around... I found out certain things about my SGF that made me kinda mad and upset (about the gifts, not her personally), and I'm not sure if I want to do it again or not as a result... frown

I filled out the survey! I did it last year, and my SGF flaked out on me after 2 months, so i didn't do it the following round, but I did it again last round, and my SGF was great, so I didn't hesitate this time!

I am not going to take part this round although I loved spoiling you sparkle-gurrl this round. I should let you know that I asked for you since I knew that you had been ditched before.

I also want to echo those posters that have written not to take this commitment lightly! A month can go by pretty quickly and you realize that you forgot to send out a package. The person you are sending to is keeping up her end of the deal and so should you. I have never been ditched but know that I wouldn't like the feeling.

Oh and Lady T...you were an awesome SGF and if you ever need an angel this round let me know.

Wow the response has been FABULOUS so far. Thanks ladies!

I can't stress enough, if someone flakes TELL ME!!! Or if you need to withdraw TELL ME!! I can't change or do anything unless I KNOW!!

I know this was an issue Nicole was having as well. We can't fix what we don't know about.

Communication is key. Several rounds ago I ended up having to drop everything and head to Edmonton to be with my dying Opa and my family. I made sure to communicate with the person sending to me what the situation was and I made sure to communicate to Nicole as well. I didn't back out. It actually gave me something nice to focus on when I wasn't at the hospital.

But SGF is like your marriage...communication is important.

To the girls who were ditched last round - I know that pain! I had a MIA SGF the first round. I was so excited when it started but after 2 months went by and I received nothing it made me very sad. I didn't however forget sending to my SGF! I spoiled her!! Eventually I was assigned to someone else and she did a wonderful job as a SGF!!


My second round experience was much better!

I'm thinking about joining again!

Still on the fence about signing up this round. I really enjoy spoiling the SGFs I get and I think that I am a pretty good SGF, but the last round was a little disheartening at times, but once I found out why my SGF was MIA, I totally understood.

It's so much fun though. I love getting the cards. Bright coloured envelopes are always better than bills!!
