For those who do not know is on BPL tradition called Pass It Forward PIF-like pass it on.
What happens is that people donate equipment and writing their first forum post that he wants get (usually only pay shipping) and morally obligated to continue the chain.
Often the only limitation is that it must be a registered user (it costs money in my opinion) and I think the point is that some company will come and take it "ו"יברחו

I would love to breed this tradition here too. Interested to hear opinions on the subject.


Clearly there are restrictions as to the amount of users is much smaller than the fact that there is no way to restrict the users pay or something.

I really like this idea even if it only includes delivery of small things (and magnitude of BPL).
I participate.

I restricts the participation of users with say 10 ~ posts (not too big and not too use to write one message and escape).

Therefore 10 posts. Maybe another criterion.

I'm more concerned about whether there's enough volume of people who want to move something forward — even if it's not a big deal really.

Nice idea but I can't contribute much since I switched equipment only when he really wears out, then take what's left of it that parts may serve me in the improvement of the remaining equipment.

Ofer, gone.

Obviously not everyone can or wants to participate. Just to clarify-all donors and everyone who contributes to giving something precious.

Sometimes it can be something very like a raincoat gnid, quilt, etc but sometimes something small and simple like windscreen, Belt pouch, etc

The idea is not exactly a donation but whoever takes undertakes to give on something similar in value.

Mickey, I didn't understand what it means Pass It Forward. That means that item?

It's a term that means roughly "pass it on" good will (this film was IIRC

The idea is that it is not contributing in the classic sense (even those at BPL ...) but a goodwill gesture that accepts her promise to deliver a similar on haoaa. So she created flow of goodwill between people that can come back to you eventually one day.

I think to put regular concatenation of equipment you have necessity and should refer and ask. In the same thread can request an item. A great idea. זמי1 41296.7766550926

Also cool, Ma! There are a few things I'd love to move because they just don't have mine.

Ma

I think about tziklity-IE if someone just takes so we didn't do much (in my opinion of course) and it feels more like a single contribution.

I'd love to see those who take provide for is something else. That's how it is in their PIF and the sense that it prevents ABUSE
