Is anybody willing to forward them? They will be packaged and addressed so all you would have to do is pop them in the mail and pay postage, which hopefully is not very much.

I can forward them unless you already have a volunteer. However I'm away 9-23 June so there might be a delay.

I have been slow in reading the forum lately.. I would love to have one also (to decorate my office wall. I already have the 57885161 hanging on it.)

I can also distribute the packages in Europe.

I didn't request buttons although I think I only have the green one. I'm near Paul in UK being off from tomorrow until 18th of June but I can easily receive postage at work and then ship all over UK.

That works.

We wonder: Should we ship a few extra sets to cover further thefts/losses by the postal service? (If so, how many?)

We sent around 60 sets here in the US, mostly to people who do not post here. Several of them came back as undeliverable, including one just last week. The markings on the package indicate it bounced (aimlessly?) from location to location before they just gave up and sent it back.

Thoughts appreciated.

Edit1: Rajula, ralf recker, pinhodecarlos and firejuggler added to list.
Edit2: Is there anyone willing to PM the people in this thread to see if they have received their buttons? (The people who haven't been "struck out", that is.)

Stop all!

I'm sorry to admit that I found that 9 badges were just sitting idle, hidden in a box similar to those used by my cats to play hide-and-seek.

Gautier
Carmody
Hoeglund
Rajala
Kruppa
Labbett
Reix
Rentz
Leyland

Your badges are here, so send your complaints to me only

But they will leave very soon. towards their owners.

Again, please excuse me and forgive my lazyness.

That explains a lot, so I guess mine will finally arrive soon then :D
I didn't want to bother you yet, that the package wasn't here yet, but here we go now!
