I read each request, ask for additional information and photos, and edit most of the photos. I answer each email that comes in about a posted request, act as a go-between to link people who can help with those who need help, and add new requests as soon as I can.
Here’s what YOU need to do:
1. Become one of our Fabulous Finders by checking the bottom of your child’s toy box for lovies other people need!
2. If you still have the lovie that you need help finding a backup or replacement for, please take a photo of it on a contrasting plain background. Daylight is best, rather than flash. All I usually need is a good frontal picture. Sometimes a side view helps, too.
If you can only find one with your child in the photo send it on, and I will edit your child out as best I can.
3. VERY IMPORTANT!! Put the Post Code found at the end of your post in every email you send to me and on every comment on your post that you make on the Search Service. Don’t worry about it if you forget sometimes – I sure do! But please try to get in the habit.
You will find your Post Code near the end of your post. It looks something like #102508-1.
4. Be sure to SUBSCRIBE TO COMMENTS on your post at the bottom of the comment form.
You can then quickly read any information from the email you will receive each time a comment is made, answer questions the Fabulous Finders or others might ask, etc, and REPLY to all their comments. They need to know you are keeping up with your post, so they are not wasting their time!!!
We encourage those who are asking for help to Pay It Forward and spend some time looking on the Internet for other people’s lovies, too.
If you do find a lovie for someone – please use the Item number in the right sidebar of the listing on eBay, rather than trying to copy / paste the whole address.
We encourage you to use an Internet Search, such as Google or Yahoo, rather than only searching eBay. More and more sellers have left eBay and have moved to smaller auction sites, or they’ve opened their own web store, so you may be limiting your chances of find your lovie, or anyone else’s lovie, if you only search eBay listings.
Whew! That’s a lot to digest, but hopefully it spells things out so you know what to do now to help us help you, and many more people, find their lost lovies, backups, replacements, or childhood lovies.
