ZXSabreman and ZeroCipher seem to be without gift? :?

I also agree with the sentiment above. It would also be consistent with SS last year as I'm sure at least one forum member met with public lambasting.

Naming And Shaming Time Then

First up Is Zerociphers secret santa,this one is international (Netherlands to USA) so there could be problems there but i have to admit its odd, so the guilty party here is Snowkatt SK told me he'd sent his item on the 6th of December but it has obviously failed to arrive

Next person to be left sad on Xmas day was ZXSabreman who should have been sent a gift by MohicanKid now MK is usually a reliable person and he did contact me to say he'd accidently put the gift in a pile for someone else rather than sending it out but by now this should have been rectified

So here's what happens next;
While i totally understand that problems may occur with the postal system those problems are unfortunately your problems you have 2 weeks to resolve this issue or you will be banned from future secret santas, many forum members may also see this as a strike against you in terms of trading reliability

I have been in touch with mohicankid as I know he has not been on the forum much lately to inform him that ZXSabreman had not received his SS present.

He messaged me back this afternoon and asked me to let you know that he has bought a replacement gift and it has been posted.

this^ i spoke to ZXS by pm at the begining of the month (as well as posting here) and posted out his gift, i've not been using the forum but have my pms on email alert so as no one has tried to contact me since then, I assumed he had recieved it! helen Texted me this morning to alert me of this post so i have been out today and made up a new parcel of some bits and bobs I found in town pluss a couple of my own bits and have posted it 1st class recorded today, i have also opend up a dispute with the post office as this is now 3 parcels in as many months that has gone missing! as some of you know i donate bottles of whiskey to the Jammaplus monthly draw and apparently no one has recieved one since november, so i have had to re-buy and re-post those too, which is an expensive ball ache!from now on i will be having to use recorded only, in the mean time, if ZXS recieves the 1st parcel which has a christmass card with it, by all means keep it and enjoy, but please let me know that its arrived!
all the best

Thanks MK,i knew with you there'd be a proper explanation and im not surprised its a postal one, you really can't trust the post office these days, its been supplemented for so long it thinks it can get away with shoddy service and in fairness they pretty much are
Thanks again for resolving the issue

So it's just ZeroCipher without a gift again then? Shame, but probably a postage problem again.
