    Hey all,

    The PIF is a beautiful thing and I believe the goodness must be spread across Europe too.

    As the main PIF thread is quite busy with offers relating to the US only, I believe it would be cool to have one set up for the EU Team only!
    I strongly recommend you all to take a look at the PIF folder (link below) to take note what is available and what offerings have gone down in the recent past.

    I hope this gains some true action, even if the number of European user is much smaller than the main US group. The Canadian Team has just done something similar recently with some excitement and good PIF'ing.

    Let see how it goes!
    Below is the link and the instructions, for people not yet familiar with it.

    You can use this thread to make your offers and for claims, but please use the tab also to get more visibility and have better accountability of the ratio of offering and claims!

    Spread the word and make this a THING!

    @uvwxVinyl @Skalap @Michael Schmid

    CURRENT OFFERS!: https://goo.gl/5bXyCq

    (please use the international PIFs tab)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Follow these steps to start your glorious PIFing journey:

    1. CLAIM AN OFFER!:
    - Visit the Google Doc above, and find an offer you'd like to claim
    - Post in the thread that you'll be claiming that offer (tagging the person making the offer is always helpful!)
    - Edit the Doc so that the offer you're claiming is now RED and has a STRIKETHROUGH on the text
    - PM your shipping address to the user who made the offer, and they will send it to you absolutely free! Some split shipping may be requested for international forumites.

    2. MAKE AN OFFER!:
    - Add a record you'd like to offer to the Google Doc
    - Be sure that your offer is in GREEN so that everyone knows your offer is up for grabs!
    - Post in this thread about your offer! Include a picture and where you are willing to ship

    3. SHIP YOUR OFFER!:
    - Once a fellow forumite has claimed your generous and beautiful offer, ship it to the address they give you!

    4. PIF SOME MORE!:
    - There is no limit to how often you can do this, however it is common practice to not spam claims so that everyone has a fair shot
    - Feel free to put up offers before claiming anything so that you're square to claim things without worrying about putting up offers immediately. Lots of people will do this, and it's why we have so many great offers on that Doc!

    You might want to have this moved to the Buy, Sell, Trade forum for higher traffic.

    still no new offers here.....

    hopefully the move to the Buy, Sell, Trade forum will give it more visibility.

    Come people, we have something special for you!

    No worries, I'll add something as soon as I've found the time.
    But thank you so much for your advertising. :)

    Oh I see, I actually think we should keep it here where it won't get lost in traffic. What do you think?

    honestly I am open to all options and, since I do not consider myself as the owner of this thread, I am happy to hear from all fellows Europeans.....
    @angryalan was suggesting the move
    on the other hand I see the new Canadian PIF thread (PIF for Canucks) is in their Community Group section, and it seems it's well visible.

    Maybe we could leave here and simply pin it to the top (not sure if it is possible).

    poll added to gauge real interest, as to date only 4-5 forum members have shown any excitement about it!

    I love that there are three different PIF threads now. thanks for starting this one, @panino! I know you worked hard to promote the international PIF tab you made on the original Google doc, and this thread will surely pick up soon! the PIF gods smile upon you :)

    @Jake! you are the PIF god, since you've been its creator, and as such I am honored to follow in your footsteps!
    Go and show me the light!
    (and you, VMP European guys, wake up and start contributing!)
