I'm finished with my birds and just sent my picture in! Hopefully, everyone in my group will be green-lighted by the time I head out to the post office tomorrow! Smiley

I'm also off to the post office tomorrow. I think all mine will be green by then.

I'm actually a little confused- do I need to wait for everyone I'm sending to to have a green light, or is it receiving from/ both? Hopefully everyone will have a green light by tomorrow morning, as that's the only chance I'll have tomorrow to go to the post office. If not, I'll just have to make another trip some other day soon.

I was wondering that myself.  There's only 2 green lights in my group so far.  I definitely won't be able to go to the post office more than once tomorrow.

I think the green light means that they've sent a picture of their finished birds to the organiser, and are ready to send. You are only supposed to send to green-lit participants. All of this probably helps cut down flaking. Smiley I suppose that if someone's not green by the time you're going to the post office, you're allowed to send theirs later?

I'm going to the post office in another hour or so. All of mine are either green or, judging by the posts here, finished, so I think I'll send all of mine out at once. The less time I have to spend at the post office, the better. (The staff are incredibly slow and terribly rude and snooty. :/ )

dragonmama, will you please post when you update this morning? I can only make one trip to the PO as well, and my group is not complete (although SarahBlais posted that she's ready; yay!)

Also, what DOES happen if someone in your group gets greenlighted later today after you've been to the PO once and/or it's after hours? I'd hate to get marked for sending late; my birds have been boxed up and ready to go for over a week.  Cheesy

One person in my group hasn't been green lighted yet but I have to go out now, so I guess I am just going to send out my birds to those who are green. I hope I don't get marked as sending late for the final bird as it is all ready to go. Undecided

It's a public holiday here tomorrow so if I can't get them out in tomorrow's post I will post the Sunday (post offices open 7 days a week here).

I was planning on going to the post office on my lunch hour today. Hopefully, some more people in my group are green-light (including myself) before then!   Grin

And to answer rackycoo's question regarding feedback for sending late, I think I read somewhere on here that since you were green before the ship date then it doesn't count against you as being sent late...

I'm just concerned about the people who can only make one trip to the PO today. I need to go now, and can only send to three people in my group. I'm probably not going to be able to go again until tomorrow. If I get back home and new people are greenlighted this afternoon, technically I'm sending late if I don't send out to them today. I just want to make sure people aren't penalized in this situation.

It looks like I've got only one person in my group who's technically green-lighted (and that's rackycoo.)  But I've already e-mailed in my pic and from the posts here I think that Foxlet is ready to go also...

I was really hoping to get all the birds sent out all at once today. The post office can be such a pain! I'm not going to have time to go to the post office tomorrow, as I already have an appointment on my lunch hour, so the rest will have to wait until Saturday.

Hopefully, the other 3 will be green by then. Because I really don't want to have to make a third trip to the post office...  Undecided
