+UOTrackers Posted November 30, 2007 Share Posted November 30, 2007 (edited) Yup, it sure is...the design has not been agreed upon yet, and production will NOT start until after the New Year confetti has settled and been swept away, but I will be slowly taking names. For those of you not in the know...Oak Coins produced the What's in your mailbox? Version 1 and Version 2 coins during the Spring of this past year. For each coin that I designed I took names of forum followers to be included on the coin. The first coin had approximately 125 names, the second had about 150 (I think). The idea came from the thread, "What's in your mailbox today?" and featured a mailbox theme, as will the Version 3 coin. It seems like an easy enough task, taking names and fitting them onto a coin, but trust me it's not. Each coin went through many revisions to make sure the names were typed correctly, capitols were capitols and lower cases were lower cases, and even then we still had minor mistakes. So, I'm going to take this one slow and steady. Please understand this is so I can retain some sanity. I will take names in batches of 20. I will ask for new batches at random times on random days to give all countries and work shifts an opportunity to get onto the 3rd version of this coin. IF YOU HAVE BEEN ON A PREVIOUS VERSION YOU MAY NOT GET ON THIS ONE. I will only be taking up to 140 names. I will begin taking names on December 1st, so watch for me to ask for them. I will not take any names after December 31st. If there is so much interest and newcomers that we go way over the allotted space, well we'll see... So until I ask for your names, some things to think about, the shorter your names, the more that will fit on the coin. Think about abbreviations, if they will work for you. Keep in mind I am only 1 person, I have a 2 year old daughter and it is the holiday season, so I will not likely be in the forums very often. I'm not good at saying no, I don't like to hurt peoples feelings and I especially don't like people mad at me, so, I will do the VERY BEST that I can to accomplish your wishes, but if I can't grant them all, please try and understand. OK that said feel free to discuss this upcoming project. PS - I will ask the mods to modify the title each time I ask for new names, hope that helps.
