Newbie Questions - How is a RR supposed to work
Well, I should have asked this before I attempted a trade, but I didn't find this forum till recently.
I'm just curious about etiquette and good practices in round robins.
Am I supposed to request the same number of plants that I offer?
Say, for example, I offer 60 plants in a trade and request 115 -- is that bad form?
What is the rule for when a trader offers five of a certain plant; is it okay for me to request four of them? Should I wait a couple of days to see if other people want them?
How are extras divvied up?
Say I send in more than 30 plants, and get back less than 20, does that mean that I can expect extras in my box?
Or does it depend on offering more unusual or popular plants instead of quantity?
If I thought I was getting extras, but didn't get any, how do I address that?
I think I've learned that sending cash for return postage is just a bad idea, what is the preferred method?
If there is an FAQ, I missed it.
Any tips you've learned, I'd appreciate.
