    It depends on your definition of "mostly" ;)

    Best way to define “mostly legal” and what I ask myself when faced with a conundrum… WWPRD…What Would Patrick Rollins Do…words to live (or die) by… As a younger man it may have been something more like What Would Expat Do but that’s a dangerous and slippery slope.

    I'd be down for starting a Foundation here in BC, to get a Esee Imlay Rescue Knife into local Search & Rescue Members loadout.... maybe once a month

    Expat would drink your rum AND “borrow “ your machete. I’m even less…saintly.

    Ok, so how exactly does this work? Someone put up an item, and the person claiming it puts up another item to keep the pay it forward going?

    That's not a bad idea either .. I was thinking post a picture of your esse In use for an entry. Random number generator after a few weeks maybe ? I'll start a new thread and post the link here

    I've just done gaw's but yeah, I just used a number generator from online.

    That isn't a bad idea, but should there be a value set? I don't see anyone getting upset if theirs was cheaper than the last but you never know.

    That’s different. The last pay it forward thread I was in turned into a complete $#*! show
    Started off great then turned into a place people were basically unloading junk
    But it also had horrible moderation which didn’t help.

    ...... yes the pay it forward approach tends to go off the rails once the vultures decent and as you note "claim gold and offer lead". The staff here really do not have the time or inclination to try and referee that type of event either so I would discourage it. Wheat @Twoody88 is doing here (an actual giveaway) is both most generous and manageable with much less chance for issues.

    I have no problem shaming the vultures when they start to circle ;)

    I like the idea of "the winner agrees to host the next giveaway"

    If you do the pay it forward, and the guy who wins doesn't have anything to give or can't afford to pay it forward themselves then? Just curious. I won't enter cause I don't know if I'd have anything to give really, not of value anyway.

    Watching this thread not going in on this as I don’t need a filter and want to see it go to a good home. Thank you for organizing this.
