Box O' Crap, Series Eight
 
I am the new Crap Master. I am a children's therapist in the real world which I hope won't be applicable to my new honorific. I think I can handle this, but we shall see! For the general record of future historians this is the reinstatement of the BOC after having approximately 7 weeks or so of postponement due to COVID19.

After two years of most excellent service as Head Cat Chaser, Crandress has hung up his special Box O Crap keyboard and returned to the Firefly-class transport ship, Serenity, for more interstellar travel earning a living through various means, both legal and illegal. For some reason, and despite seeing how much effort it takes to keep the ball matriculating downfield, Crandress is desperate enough to think I may be up to for this challenge. Crandress, we all thank you for your service! And also for being a great caretaker of the BOC game!

Rules (this is important):
1. If you can't abide by the rules, please don't play
2. Ship within 5 working days of receipt of box (if you're on the list, you should have some crap ready to be put into the box - right?) This is a USPS large flat rate box, with a current shipping cost of $19.95. This just the current price and likely to go up, so your actual cost could be more. If you receive a box that's falling apart, please pick up a new one from the post office-they're free! Also note that this B.O.C. game is only available to those within the USPS flat rate region. Sorry in advance for those C&V forum members that can't play!
3. Remove only crap you intend to use yourself
4. Do not remove crap to sell to somebody else
5. Do not remove crap to pass to somebody else
6. Try to put in as much or more crap than you remove
7. Report receipt via this thread upon receipt (same day shouldn't be too difficult - we're all addicted to this forum and most post daily. Don't suddenly disappear once the box makes it to you). Report via this thread when you've sent the box on to the next member as well.
8. Photograph the box contents as received (not a completely-revealing photo - just the box open and the crap on the top of the pile) and post (this thread is worthless without pics and all that...)
9. Photograph what you took out, but not what you put in - it's supposed to be somewhat of a surprise.
10. Bonus if you photograph the take parts once mounted or used, even if it is a long time before you use it. Not a requirement, but I think this might enhance the thread and I know I would enjoy seeing a part I contributed getting used.
11. Players must have 150 posts or more. This, of course, is to facilitate PMing to pass/receive mailing addresses. Additionally, if you're serious enough to post this many times, you're part of the community and much less likely to be jumping onboard just to get some free crap .
12. Please, no completely worthless, borked crap (unless, of course, it's a cat-toy or has a string tied around it signifying its use as a small boat anchor).
13. Ultraspontane has unwittingly prompted us to add the following guidance: The BOX OF CRAP is a CRAPSHOOT and you may not like the CRAP in the BOX. There may be absolutely nothing in the box of any value to you. Even if this is the case, you will still be expected to spend $19.95 (subject to change in accordance to current postal rates) to mail the BOX OF CRAP on to the next person. If you aren't ok with that, don't play the game; it's that simple, really.
14. If you take more than 10 days to ship the box, you're banned for life. Right now weve got Ultraspontane, Road2you, and mtnbke on this list. I hope not to add anyone else.
15. PM the next person in line (don't ask me!) for a ship to address. Don't post it here, respect everyone's privacy.
16. If you're on deck, in the hole, or otherwise getting close to your turn, and you know you're going on vacation, have to drive the kids to college, or have temporary crap going on, you can post here or PM the CrapMaster (me), and I'll move you down the list a bit on the sly based on what you feel you're more comfortable meeting your BOC responsibilities. I won't make you get to the end of the line. The list is not writ in stone, I can copy and paste with the best of 'em.
17. When requesting a new place in line, please let the Crapmaster know the number of times you have played.
18. Please don't take photos of address labels on the box or post tracking info publicly to respect everyone's privacy. I don't think anyone does this intentionally, but we just want to remind everyone. For tracking info, please limit to private messages.

Okay! Now that I have created a fresh thread to end the Seventh Edition of the Box O Crap, Series Eight will begin.

One word: KARMA. Make sure you do the right thing so the Karma you get is the kind you want.

Hail to the newly minted Crapmaster! And many thanks to the previous potentate Crandress for his oversight of the Box O' Crap for low these many eons. Welcome Crandress to the ranks of the former Crapmasters and enjoy your retirement.

To ChrOmOly:
Welcome aboard as the newest iteration of being the Grand and Munificent holder of the Box O'Crap leader's mantel.
At this time, might I implore the great and wonderful Crapmaster to please lower my receipt of the exalted Box O' Crap to second in line as I have received it within the last few of it's stops.
Your humble crap servant, Mad Honk

Chr0m0ly 05-18-20 11:50 PM

And so it is done!

It looks like we have enough people to send it out, and Reco Very looks ready to take some crap 👍

Lets unleash the box 📦 O💩!

Youve been dragged through the crap to the bottom, before I added the most recent participants.

I think I need to get a new box, so I will head the post office. I have the address, but will likely not send until Tuesday as I am dealing with my son's wedding this weekend.
