We will initiate a new Turtle Route method come March 2007. Until then, the turtle has a full route.

There may be some restrictions. And we are sorry if this leaves some people in the cold. But we are aiming to get it to as many people as possible. And of course, Series family and Series originals will get priority. Consider it a risk factor assessment.

This may result in some people having to wait a while, but the benefit is it will see triple the amount of people compared to the current rough-cut spur of the moment methods.

The sole reason for this is to speed the process up and get more people to see it. It will also cut postage costs. Please bear with us on this.

My suggestion to you guys: Make your LOCATION field ACCURATE!
EDIT:
See Alli's suggestion - 1st reply
/EDIT
---

Not doing this won't exclude you. But when we review how many members are from x location we may skip an area if there are 0 found in our search.

More details on all of this will become clear between now and March.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE MOST LIKELY WON'T ACCEPT NEW MEMBERS. THIS IS SIMPLY BECAUSE IT'S TOO RISKY FOR NOW. STICK AROUND ON THE BOARD, POST, BECOME A PART OF THE FAMILY AND BY THE TIME YOU'RE UP YOU'LL PROBABLY BE A RESPECTED MEMBER.

I'd also like to strongly encourage you to mark yourself on the member map if you haven't done so already. That will make it easy for us to visually map out a route instead of having to search through the entire board. We'd suggest picking a landmark instead of your actual house for privacy reasons.

Thread on how to add yourself to the map is here: http://afiseries.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=2715

PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE YOUR HOUSE LOCATION. BUT PLEASE KEEP YOUR LOCATION INSIDE YOUR TOWN. USE THE CENTRE OF TOWN STREET IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT PRIVACY ISSUES.

Yes, marking on map would actually be easier than uniformly changing your location to something not personal. Listen to Alli wink.gif

I opened this for queries/help. But I won't divulge the full plans until ready.

My name's been on the map for some time now. Will the turtle hit my town sometime soon? If so, I could probably meet one of our NY members at the mall near here and give them Myline, who could then give the turtle to someone else.

I'd like to be a part of this, but there's the whole security issue thing...I just thought of something. Depending on if/when I get Myline, there are places I could take it.
Unfortunately, the map-thing doesn't seem to be working for me. If someone wants to do that for me, I was using Oberlin College as a reference, but if it needs to be less specific, I'm near Cleveland.

Natalie, Myline was in NY in June with MPS. tongue.gif You missed her! But I'm sure the turtle will go back.

msncry.gif Damn it! (But was that NYC? Or the central region)

Also: I didn't know about Myline until April. Or what Myline was, rather.

5 hours later. If you're not fixed by now, let me know and I'll club myself over the head.

Markus... How's the weather in India? :P No, you weren't there until I fixed it. Might want to add in the negative sign before the 80 wink.gif

Oh no! At first, I wondered, "How does she know about India?", since I almost moved there a couple of years back. Hah, my mistake. Thanks so much!

Oh, Linda, the map says you moved to the Xinjiang area? wink.gif

I've been planning to visit certain places near here, but I've been postponing it, thinking I could do it together with Myline. I hope he/she will come by some time soon-ish, 'cause if things stay like they are now, I don't think I'll be here for all that much longer (still a year or so though, I think)

Has Myline set his/her trip for Europe yet? Better to make arrangements ahead so this passing can be smooth (and so some of us actually get to see said turtle.) Just curious on the planning for this.
