Посткроссинг

02

Когда-то давно люди писали письма, отправляли друг другу поздравительные открытки, получали на почте ценные бандероли. Интересен был не только процесс написания, когда «пальцы тянулись к перу, перо к бумаге», но и щемящее чувство ожидания, когда заглядывали в почтовый ящик и получали ответы на свои письма. Сейчас этот процесс частично нам заменило общение посредством электронной почты, смс. И письма стали короче, и почерком уже вроде не ужасаешься, и ошибки, если таковые имеются, будут подчеркнуты и исправлены. И все же остались чудаки, которые пишут открытки, обмениваются ими, переписываются, общаются посредством открыток с целым миром, и назвали они свое увлечение POSTCROSSING.

Postcrossing is an online project that allows its members to send and receive postcards from all over the world. Almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world. Where the postcards come from is always a surprise. Why? Because there are lots of people who like to receive real mail. You will be surprised to receive postcards from different places in the world (many of which you probably have never heard of).

How it works:

Request an address and a Postcard ID

Mail a postcard to that address

Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!

Register the Postcard ID you have received

Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

The first step is to request to send a postcard. The website will display (and send you an email) with the address of another member and a Postcard ID. Then you mail a postcard to that member.

The member receives the postcard and registers it using the Postcard ID that is on the postcard. At this point, you are eligible to receive a postcard from another user. You are now in line for the next person that requests to send a postcard. Where the postcard comes from is always a surprise!

You can have up to 5 postcards traveling at any single time. Every time one of the postcards you send is registered, you can request another address. The number of postcards allowed to travel at any single time goes up the more postcards you send!

Exchanges between the same two members only occur once; although direct swaps between members happen, they are not part of the official happenings on the site.

By June 2015 Postcrossing had more than 554,570 members in 213 different countries who had registered and exchanged over 30 million postcards that have traveled over 151 billion kilometers.
