Thats great! You know they are taking you seriously when your causing change to better the system.

I agree with the others though: try not to stress to much. I think your right and its only a mater of time before it shows up. and even if not; I agree its not the end of my garden. Sure we'd miss all the goodies but its not life or death and there is always next year. My (still fledgeling) garden will be even more ready next year... Hilarious!

I agree take care of yourself star!

Love forgives all wrongs.

Please, dont go through any special trouble for me. If my box is found then I can wait on it. If it's not found Im fine with all the seeds I have. I don't want you under any more stress Ella, seriously. I love that you are willing to find out what happened to our boxes but I dont want you to worry another second about seeds. You have done enough.

Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.

An easier way to estimate value may be to take an average price per packet from several companies and multiply packets per average price. You can add on plants, bulbs, whatever else is in the given package, postage, etc. We have 30 days to make a claim. I am hoping that they will find the bag now that other post offices have been placed on notice and complaint numbers have flooded the computer.

I am getting things done before the next big storm hits tonight. It is 10'F now. What a winter!

Good question Posion. If everybody that is missing, will go and make a post and put their name into each of the different categories, than you can edit it as we find the links.

For those helping, just make a post and put the name of the person that has that seed. That the best I can think of at the moment. Once the missing have their name posted and their spots than I can move the ones those helping found onto their posts.

That the best I can think of right now to do. If anybody familiar with our systems here has a better idea holler out. My ears is wide open. Ears perked up! Hopefully all this will be a waste of time, but best to be prepared.

A big majority of seeds came from Tuink's site. Getting the names link and price from her site should not be too hard. There was almost I think 600 packets from Tuink alone to ya all. I will take the list from Tuink and figure it out to the missing folks. That way I can see what it would cost to rebuy all those seeds from her of what she has in stock plus the postage to here. Same for the ones from Jonna. I know both of them maybe out of some stuff. I think both of them have set prices too for on their sites.

I also working on a database of all my stuff for the missing piggies to oink from. When I have it all finished I will let everybody know and they can oink then.

I know even though the seeds were mailed on the 4th, documentation started on the 10th, so Po as far as paperwork goes will go by that date. Read up way early this morning on everything needed to file claims.

The thing that frosts my cookies the worst is we have new piggies with us and this sure doesn't make for a good first impression. Grumbling Grumbling

Ella, I agree with Anita. IF the packages are found, wonderful! But I have more than enough seeds anyway and I don't want anyone to bother trying to replace them. I'll just participate in the seed swap again next year. And as far as being a newbie, you know, S**T happens. No biggie.

I'm not quite understanding what it is you are asking us to do either. I mean, if I were to take my list, for instance, and try to search somewhere that sells that particular seed, I would probably have about 50 sites! I think Andi has a good idea, to average? But, if you need exact for a claim, are you saying we should look up all the seeds we have on our list on any site and put in the price? And I'm not clear where/what we're posting.

Once everybody has posted their name to the threads than I can copy and paste all the incoming seeds to your post so folks don't have to keep running back and forth from databases to threads.

When I checked this morning for official claims department it said 15 to 60 days and has a whole list of the official paperwork needed. Copies for each one of my receipts, plus will have to print copy of each database that shows contents of each and file on replacements and such.

When I was at po first time checking on status of stuff guy in front of me was there having to have PO email his package. The box got damaged somewhat and it was mailed at Christmas time, was gift and he said his relatives , in laws thought they he had stiffed them, and it was just now getting back to him.

Yep, some folks would have 50 sites and some almost 200. But Po claims is not going to take an average. They pretty strict on rules for refunding. They have to be or folks would be filing claims all over the place. If ya take a few day, won't take too long to get it done.

Where are we supposed to be posting our names? and I am not sure exactly what you need us to do either Star, maybe if you can start one or someone starts one you can link us to how an example?

Anyway I called the PO again and they said they have until tomorrow to contact me, but I'm glad I called because apparently Monday when I said 6767 for the last 4 of the tracking # she thought I was repeating myself so they didn't even have the full tracking #. But obviously they hadn't even tried to look into it or they might have called me to get the correct #. Glare

Ella, I agree with what Diamond said about being fine with the seeds I already have and do not want you stressing over my box on my behalf - . I would prefer that you take care of you and your health first.

Misti. Go to here

make a post like My seed list.

Than go up and click the words Miscellaneous forum and you will see the threads for veggies and herbs. Do the same for each thread. Put the words my list.

Than I can show ya all what to do. Some folks from off their haves list already had links so it will be easy to copy those links and the prices. They may only refund the 50 bucks, but I sure gonna try for everything I can.

I will be calling again this afternoon. Will be calling and bugging folks everyday. I just wish they would let me search. I'd be like a blood hound for sure. The thing is I bet ya when they do find somebody not gonna wanna say they found them, cuz they know they gonna get a rump chewing and a write up for not checking properly. Just hope somebody person's up here along the way.

If I don't answer right back. It getting bad here now. Stuff turning to ice rain and my server in the middle of this mess and I barely have any power to post. Keep getting throwed off and when reconnected only have 16Kbps instead of normal 42. Soon will have to get off line all together.

Is there a list of whose packages are missing? I have tried to put a list together from the thread, but I have more than 14 on my list of those who have not posted that they received theirs.

Have you posted the tracking number for each package anywhere? I haven't seen them?

Also, have you posted a list of the piggies who have not yet received their seeds? We would need to know that in order to make a list with prices.

You were reading my mind Patricia. That just what I went to get, here the list of the folks.


Once they make a post, they can edit it as they find stuff and I can edit from posts from helpers, but I can't start a post with their name and them be able to edit it. System here don't work that way.

Greene, Everybody has their tracking number and the case numbers from my end of their missing packages. Not posting that online as if they do show up that has areas of folks addy's and that needs to be kept private. That why when I see people posting email addy's and such I remove them for their protection. There are thousands of hits everyday to this site and folks hiding on the wallpaper and while 99 % are good their always somebody who is not and I try and protect the privacy of all my members as best as I can.

Okay, I posted to each of those threads, but I still do not understand how that helps.

Ok, I trying to work this out, kinda feeling my way through it. I think everybody that missing just post in the flowers thread. Thought it might be easier if the categories were separate, but that almost looks like more work.

Arlene, since you posted, I copied all the seeds you had coming in. I was able to go down list and quickly mark off ones that I still have stock off. Now, if you look any up, you can edit your post next to the name the link of the site and the price. That way I can pull those off hand and not list on the new database I working on, so you will have for sure.

Those that helping can now look and see what needs a link and a price and can make a post, than I can copy and paste those links they provide up to your main post til we have all your seed covered.

Some folks have offered to send replacement seed if they have it. Nobody send any seed right now, til we sure this winter mess over with and planes flying again and back log of parcels caught up. Last night Atlanta had already cancelled 2,000 flights. What a nightmare mess of winter.

Guess I should have looked at this post first! I already copied to Herb and Vegetable thread. Luckily, I did NOT edit the flower one! LOL! So I'll not post the other two and work off the flower one.

Ella, I can understand your frustrations. You've been busy with the Piggy Swap for months. I can understand you can't accept that a part of the seeds got lost until now, even if most piggies tell you they don't mind. Group hug Group hug Group hug Group hug
Unfortunately I can't do anything to help you from here. Sad
The only thing I can offer is - if the seeds are really lost- to send the seeds I promised directly to the piggies. Although a few seeds might be out of stock, I think I can resend most.
