Draw several addresses at once


I thought, maybe it'd be nice if you could draw several addresses at once?
For example: yesterday I drew four addresses. I find it a little annoying that I have to go back at forth for each address. It would be convenient if you just type the number of addresses you want and then get them at once.

Like:
"Request [number] addresses" and then they open in new tabs.

It would especially make sense if you want to sent more than a handful.

Any thoughts on this? :)

I think this option is available already:

Click "Postcards",
"Traveling",
On the right side there is a button that says "Print addresses".
Click on this and then you can tick the addresses you want to print out.

I hope this suggestion can solve your problem. :)

I think the suggestion refers to requests for new addresses and not to printing already requested addresses. And yes, I also had this idea several times when requesting 10+ addresses at a time. It would be great to have the possibility to choose the desired number of new addresses in a drop-down menu and get them all through one click instead of requesting each address individually.

Postcrossing is for snail mail. I do not get it why one should request more then one address is one go.

The system is handing out one address by one address and for every address you get you sign an agreement.
If I request 70+ addresses and have to check the box 70+ times, I can be aware 70+ times that I must sent a card (that is, I must do the "work" and pay a card and postage).
I am not able to write so many card in one day as well.


If you hit the button once by mistake, you might end up with too many addresses. Therefore I think the way it is is a good way that does not have to be changed.

I regularly send postcards in batches. From 5 to 20, so I get where the topic starter is coming from.
What I do is this:
I open the 'send postcard page' 20 times in different tabs. (If you press control while clicking the link to the page, it does open in a new tab)
Then I check the required box and switch from tab to the next tab with crtl+tab.

When ready I request the cards on the different tabs quickly one after another, so I end up with ID's that follow-up (that is much easier for me to print stickers with the ID). Then I can get the adresses from the mail or via the methode suggested by Marghit.
