I like the idea of 3 months but also 150 posts.

I voted other. I'd hate to think someone new is to join our group and be super active but not be able to participate bc they haven't been with the group long enough. (I dont even know how long I've been with the group.)

On that note, the 150-200 posts is a good idea and then if someone does end up flaking out, we can all contribute to a replacement gift for the recipient.

Does that make sense?

yeah, lower time requirement I can see making sense with a higher post count because they are active.. However, if we are buying gifts and sending next month and open June 1st... I don't think anyone who has not posted yet at this point should be included. Recent active members are fine.

Definitely keep the suggestions coming! I quickly thought up some requirements so we could start voting but will be more than happy to make a new poll!

I agree that it would stink to have a newer active member be left out if they didn't meet the time requirement but on the flip side I'd worry someone would join and do 150 posts in a few week span just to make the requirements you know?

Plus- I also worry that we have some very active ladies that have been with us since the beginning but may borderline miss the post requirement

How about they have to be a member of our DDC for 45 days and have a post count of at least 150? That way we dont have women join the week before and post a bunch just so they can get a gift. And 45 days isnt too long either

We could also have a cut-off join date since like Melissa said, we are shopping and sending gifts next month. If they join by say April 15th then by the end of May they would be a member with us for 45 days so I think it would be okay if they participated, so long as they meet the post requirement and prove they are an active member.

I hope those make sense lol I feel like I've rambled a bit

The issue I see with that is if someone joins by the 15th, then they'd only have 2 weeks to get 150 posts before partner assignment. Everyone will have to meet the requirement PRIOR to assignment, otherwise we risk them flaking because they've potentially only been a member for 2 weeks... and then we also run into the situation that if by the end of May if they don't have 150 posts, they have a partner that may not get anything.

I also worry that some ladies who have been with us for months but don't have enough posts because they don't have a ton of time online would get left out because they don't meet requirements; but then someone who just joined and essentially spammed the DDC to make 150 would be allowed in.

I definitely think the date requirement needs to be prior to 4/1 to give a full month to get their post count where it should be... honestly, we're not seeing many people join the DDC at this point anyway so I don't worry too much about this scenario anyway, but definitely want to figure something out.

Maybe we can do a member for 2 months and post count of 150?
