    I'd like to address an issue in this thread, namely the 'no one has asked for a gift after 2 days'. Im
    sure the thread starter didn't intend for any pressure to be put on to the next gifter, but I think people feel under pressure for their gift to be accepted. 'To keep it going'. Hence we see offers, then replacement offers. I propose a rule of offer, then wait until it's taken. The forum is quite slow at the moment and some of the offers are good ones, then get taken away and replaced with other items of higher value and I'm sure there's some subliminal idea of 'need to get my gift taken'.
    Just my thoughts after 18 hours of work.

    the thread is what it is. There's no need for a 'rule', once you add that rule you'd have to add others, like gifts need to be of equal value or if you take something you need to have something ready to offer...

    good stuff goes quick not so good stuff can hang a bit, that's the nature of the type of thread this is

    this threads is now on page 363 seems to me its going along at the same pace as it started. 4 gifts changed hands day 1 - nothing of which I'd have taken but it all found homes...

    At the end of the day if you can't handle the pressure don't play

    + 1 .... spot on Sir.

    I might add that if the OP wanted rules in his thread, he would have put them in at the beginning.

    I think the thing about the gio thread is that it's the right gift at the right time...you don't always know what you are going to need, something that I dismiss one day, I might have a use for the next....that's why it's good to leave gifts on here for a while rather than rushing to replace them. With regards to value, all the items have a value to the person that accepts them

    I would absolutely say that I have come under pressure at times to add additional items when my initial gift has remained untaken, but you kinda have to shrug it off...we don't need a rule for that, but maybe we all have to more mindful and patient.

    Yep, fair enough. Not posting after a few too many pints of IPA with work is a rule I should implement on myself...

    To be fair, I think your comment has merit. There have been a number of instances of people appearing a bit vulture like in this thread, making it feel the opposite of what it should.

    This is so true - I'd passed up the pouch previously, as I didn't have any use for it, but a friend of mine is collecting PLCE pouches for some charity work he's doing in Africa. Each pouch is getting filled with some trauma bandages, a tourniquet and first aid shears and is getting sent off to equip anti-poaching rangers, who're protecting endangered animals on a safari reserve. I'll have a rummage through my stuff tonight and see what I can put up.

    Next up, a gas stove, like this one:


    I stress, it's NOT an MSR stove, I got it from Wilko last year. Looks similar to that one is all.

    It may seem like a good idea at the time but never open a tin of beans with an axe

    Absolute belter of a GIOT gift. Hopefully the quid pro quo will reflect that.

    By saying yes to this I take it as proof you are over 18.
