    1)We only have one rule for this forum; "Everything is free - shipping included."

    Having said that, here are some helpful suggestions;

    1)Anyone can do a PIF thread anytime.

    2)For those who are new to the site, PIF=Pay It Forward. That is to say, we share what we have, without asking for anything in return. But we hope the recipients will share with others, when they get a chance.

    3)What kind of things to share? If you just want to clean off your shelves or have too much of something, it's great to pass along razors, brushes, soaps, creams, etc. If you have used a little, but weren't thrilled, it's fine to pass it along, because YMMV, so someone else may love it.

    4)Information people will need includes, what you are giving, who can enter (you may specify length of membership, where you can ship, etc.), and what someone has to do to enter. Also, please let people know how you will choose a winner. Many of us use to select our winners.

    5) You can keep it simple, by just asking people to tell you they are interested or ask them to tell a story, post a funny picture, etc. Look through existing PIF's for ideas.

    I hope I have been clear. If you have questions, feel free to PM any of the mods. If not, let's start thinking about it and PIF away!

    Is it a PIF if winner pays for actual postage ? Probably talking $10usd to U.S. $10cda with Canada, non-reg. Got a Rolls Razor Imperial model that I'd like to PIF but weighs almost a pound 446g on it's own.

    See rule #1-PIF is totally free.

    I'd suggest that you post that razor in the classifieds as a "pay postage only" sale.

    Of course you can. If you don't, you will certainly get requests for photos.

    Sorry. I was being facetious. I know you meant you wanted the title of your PIF changed to say DONE.
    I can't change it, I just said, "done," because you wanted someone to say "done."

    One of the mods can help you wth that title change.

    I see that it has been marked as DONE. We check those periodically and mark them, when we see that they are done. But if we miss it, you can always PM any moderator and ask us to mark it.
