How to REQUEST A NEW TAG / thread , ideas for new Tags / Other items .


How to request a new thread , ideas for new Tags / Other items .

Having a good idea for a new " Tag / Other Items " thread?

:exclamation: Read the following information carefully .


* First check the DIRECTORY.

It's in alphabetical order . )
* When you can't find a usable thread you can write your idea here in this thread .
* Please describe the tag / subject/ theme or contact the moderator by u2u .



* Here are some guidelines for on opening a new tag / other items :

* The idea must have a chance. This means people in different parts of the world should be able to find and send suitable items .
* None of the existing tags are too similar .
* These are guidelines, not rules. Moderators may deny a tag. If we do, we’ll explain why .

* When I allow a new tag, you can open / start the tag .

;) I will delete the request and add the Tag to the directory .

Hello,
I wonder if I can open a new tag. It would be spicy tag. About sending some spice/spices from your country/region.
I already tried to do it, but it probably was deleted ;)

Thank you for your response. Do you really think there will be problems? I made a little research in the internet and I think it should be fine... We have for example instang soup tag in here and there are no problems with custom duties even though you are also sending some spices etc. What do you think? Can we try? :)

Hello ,

There are countries with very strict rules ( Like Australia, the USA and some countries in Europe .)

Ofcourse you may open / start the tag .

If there will be problems , I do hope members will mention these " customs - issues " .

Hi, Jette!

Idea for a tag. Bank card. 2 or 3 cards, simple letter.

Weight up to 20 grams.

My pleasure, Alex.

Hi Alex ,

Do you mean " bank notes " or bank cards ?
I think " bank cards " , isn't possible / allowed . ( privacy rules / forum rules . )

Why? There are many collectors of Bank cards.
This is not illegal. It's a young form of collecting.

https://colnect.com/en/bank_cards

But on this site do not TAG

Hello ,

I have discussed your request with the administration team / other moderators .
The theme " bank cards " has nothing to do with postcards or mail, so it doesn’t seem like a good fit for our forum.
To allow it, we would have to allow tags on pretty much any (collectable) item which would easily get out of hand

Stickers, envelopes, even fridge magnets (which can be souvenirs like postcards) may be ok , but bank cards seems a bit far to fetched .

We won't open a tag : "bankcards " .

Kind regards,
Jette, moderator

Hello ,

Would you like to open a tag or would you like to swap ?

This is the thread for swaps / requests etc. :


https://forum.postcrossing.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=73

Kind regards,
Jette, moderator



I made a mail art directory. Maybe you can find something you want to participate in. There are lots of swaps and tags already. :) The link is in my signature.

If you want to open a tag for all kinds of handmade art, I'm in! All existing tags, as far as I know, are limited to a certain theme, e.g. handmade cards, envelopes, illustrated letters, drawings, photos etc. I'd love to have even more diversity in one tag! Hurray for creativity and diversity and a surprise in the mail box!

Hello ! What about a "Tell me.about what you'd like to" tag ? It could be a good letter tag, but not necessarily opening to a penpalship.

Hello, I’m a planting lover ,since last year we started to try some varieties from other country, like golden sun tomatoes from Japan and peppers habanero from America, we got those seeds from online shops and people share with each other in a forum of my country. If there’s tag about “seeds exchange”here to help people from all over the world who love planting or want to give a try, that would be great,right?

Hello ,

There was a tag , " seeds exchange " related .

It has been deleted due the lack of interest.
However , ofcourse you may open a new tag.

Maybe this time the tag will move .

Hello,
Thanks for your help.And yes, I’d like to try again, this autumn when I get new seeds from my heirloom varieties, I will put them in my offers and in a new seeds exchange tag.
See you then.
Happy summer!
Best wishes,
