Sounds awesome, but I will sit this one out. I am still to new and most of you don't know me yet. So because of that I will sit this out. Maybe the next time you guys will know me better and I will join. I know what it is like trusting new people with this type of thing. I have traded things in the past on other forums, but only with well established members so I don't get screwed.

For instance, if I were to send a 150g of a favorite ( and more importantly authentic) Ameran blend to the Mad Hatter, and explain both to the Hatter and publicly to the thread that it was my current favorite, that to me it invokes the traditional non-commercial mo'assel type tobacco's that I grew up smoking, and that in my opinion it was the closest available blend comparable to the elusive, and now possibly legendary, Shooting Star. This would perhaps not only stimulate public conversation on the thread (i.e.- mo'assel vs. tobamel, commercial vs. non-commercial) but allow the person who receives the box to publicly decide what they intend to do with the gift. Keep 50g, contribute 50g of their favorite. Keep it all, and replace it with three different 50g samples of personal favorites. And of course, that person who received the gift can review said gift as seen fit, and then post what they are sending down the line, and why. It might keep the exchange more equitable, would certainly indirectly involve a lot of interested HP'ers, and would allow for some interesting exchange of opinion and experience.
That would be an awsome idea, but to keep it fair to the person receiving the box next (and a surprise), I think it should be that each person documents what is in the box when they receive it. It would still keep us honest and make sure that nothing is missing as the person who sent would know if that was a true receiving list or not.

I also think that to keep things more interesting and fast paced there should be several boxes doing a merry-go-round depending on the participant list size. Same basic ideas though, take what you want from the box, replace it with like worthy stuff, send it on. This way we could accomodate more than 10 people.

Iv tried boxes with more than 10 people and it sucks waiting to get the box. If you're last on a list of 20, Its not going to get to you in like a month. So its best to just keep it small. You can always get one organized and start a new box

This is a cool idea. Alas, I don't have any trading history either.

I really want to do this, but it is a possibility that I wont be home when it gets to me, I leave Jan 7 back to school. Cause I have 250g of zaghoul mixed with a little honey just sitting around.
