Postcrossers

Curious to know if any other coscom members are post-crossers.

I just started recently and so far it's been a lot of fun ^^

If you're a post-crosser, post your profile page so we can request cards from each other here on coscom ^^/

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

What is postcrossing?

Postcrossing is exchanging postcards via snailmail with random, computer-chosen partners all over the world. You never know when and from where your next card will come. The possibility for virtual anonymity and lack of return addresses on postcards prevents creepers from exploiting the system and most people never exchange cards with the same person more than once.

Your profile doesn't need to contain your real name. Address cannot be requested by visitors to your profile, they only pops up as a random destination when chosen by the computer. Postcards don't carry return addresses either. It would be literally impossible for anyone you've actually corresponded with to stalk you (or even find you) based on your interactions at postcrossing.

The very worst thing that could happen is that someone could decide to prank you with something scary after recieving your address in their very first batch of 5 random addresses (you can't continue to recieve addresses until your previous cards are inputted to the system by the recipients).

Why would someone prank you with no way to see your reaction or the outcome?
If all they want is a random address, it's easy enough to obtain one from any of the thousands of address listings on the internet.

Oh, that sounds interesting! I've never heard of it before now, but I think I'll definitely look into making a profile soon.

Sounds cool, I might make an account later.
...eh, they don't have my city. Despite it being the 9th biggest city in Norway... ._.

Here's my profile....!!!

Can't wait to get started!

(They didn't have the city nearest to me either, so I tried using the town nearby... but apparently there are two in ontario... so then i changed it to another one that is also close.... its just for the map so its not a big deal)

www.postcrossing.com/user/DireKitty

EDIT: This is really funny, i picked Cambridge, which shows up on the map.... but the mailbox... is somewhere else. roffle.

Oh well.
