Since the last post I got cards from Cranksy, Wertstahl, Spiny, Phreedh, XXX (let's see, I even might give it a try) and Arrakis. Thanks a lot for all your efforts, receiving each card was a real joy!
cool, all three I sent have been confirmed received, so if any of you wanted to post pics for whatever reason, there no 'spoilers' now :)

I received cards from blossom&superogue, mog, franky, and t3trinetet, but I'm still waiting for the last one. do the relevant people know why this might've happened, just it being sent late / predictable international snailmail delays, or is it getting lost more likely?

It's possible it's late. The closer things were sent to the end of the year they're going to be delayed, plus COVID-19.

I just got one today from CyborgJeff (Europe to US). If I read it right, it was canceled by the postal sorting on 2020-12-16. I wouldn't call it lost yet.

If you want to know who it would or should be from, you can send me an email, FB Message, Discord or Twitter DM, anywhere we both are and I can answer you.

I won't be able to do this for everyone if I get a huge ton of requests but but the occasional request...
alright, I'll wait a week or two before doing that, then

Looks like >= 2 weeks isn´t uncommon for international snail mail: Wasn´t much faster in previous years, too, and at least my tiny local post shop was pretty affected (reduced opening times and pretty overcrowded when open) by the additional covid mess. Thus I hope hat most missing cards will arrive this or next week.

@spiny: Oldscool never dies =D

That was really nice. Thanks for organising this! It made the pre-x-mas days more fun.

No problem. :)

If people have suggestions or feedback for next year definitely let me know.
Bummer, this totally went beyond me...

I received cards from like 6-7 people/groups - thanks for that and I'm putting together "stamps back" when i can, was a shine of light on an otherwise blearly christmas/newyears if you sent me or would like a card emails me at my address in profile, It's hard to decifer addresses from most cards sent to me...

Thanks guys :)

All three of my cards are confirmed by the recipients, but i've only had two in return (and one of those I think was a spur of the moment one)

fingers crossed for the other two soon :)

Passing by fastly, I didn't send any of my cards yet. It was a hard time deciding what would I send, and I decided to go the aquarelle way. Takes time, but you will have it :)

Erm... the supposed mail date was for x-mess 2020, not 2021 ;o)
added on the 2021-01-19 18:37:06 by T$ T$
It was supposed yeah. I wasn't able to, that's about it :)
added on the 2021-01-19 18:39:50 by iks iks
T$, it was just a suggested mail by date. ;)

I'm happy as long as people participate and send their cards, plus what with how 2020 was and went, some that got sent "in time" may arrive later than expected anyway.

It's all good.
iks, I sent you a note on Discord. (It's good, nothing bad.) :)

Thanks everyone who participated, and I'll hopefully see cards from some of you all again in late 2021. :)
Starchaser: Well, it still makes sense to receive them before christmas time is completely over ^^

Anyway, I´ll happily join again next time \o/

Received my 8th and last expected card today, poststamped 20/12 in St Petersburg.
added on the 2021-01-26 19:24:51 by Nosferatu Nosferatu
Great! :)

I'm already collecting small improvements for next year (website, etc.)

I think I'm up to 8 out of 12 received? but I'm not keeping explicit count (probably should, next year)*. I know one is still coming. :)

* That's one of the improvement ideas. Show the handles of senders to recipients after something like January 15th or something so if there's any stuck somewhere in the postal system you know what you expect.
Hej iks, thank you so much for the little surprise i got in the mail today! Hope you read this here, because i didn't know how to contact you otherwise.
best
WS
