    The only problem of this format, and kind of where I think a lot of the effort to pare the list down comes from, is we are running out of characters for the list so re-posting it, or adding to it, causes an error for the post being too large. Some of that is linking back to the original post for ease of reference.

    But, I think this format could complicate things even if it is better organized.

    Honestly, I think at this point we're less worried about people jumping the hook because... karma. At least that's my feel from this thread. If someone happens to have something that didn't get claimed by this point, I think a "free-pass" is reasonable. Partly because it's more work than it's worth to track them down and partly because we have had enough people give and not require PIF's that there is a lot of good mojo going on in this thread than to sully it with "debt collection." IMO.

    I think we just clean it up so it's easier for people to know what's available for claiming and let the rest pass on to the old pages of the thread to keep the thread moving forward.

    I think this is roughly my thinking as well. The list can be a handful to keep updated.

    Also, @JupiterPaladin if you need some help spreading the cleanup duties out, I should be able to donate some time to that as well.

    I appreciate the offer for helping out @bikerector but I think I got it handled so far. I think we got some good input here I will work on the format change this evening most likely. So the 1 year limit seems good, and I will shoot out some PM's on inactive users see what shakes out.

    @JupiterPaladin my PIF that I posted for the SOG ToolClip in post 5427 please tag it as a NO PIF required, it’s sitting unused at this point someone may want to try it out.

    Awesome, enjoy. It was too nice to sit in a drawer. Good luck mastering the pocket flick, this is a really easy one compared to some though. It's pretty hard not to open it on the draw.

    Getting spoiled by this new, earlier mail route... like getting my toys first thing in the morning :D

    Love the fit and finish on this guy. It's funny how small the blade looks, slimmed down for the opener. Had to compare it to my delica 4 just to verify that the looks were deceiving me! Getting used to the pocket pull too. Didn't trust it the first couple times, but has gotten a lot more natural in just a couple hours :thumbsup: Great little piece!

    I'm truly surprised at you guys....... All this mention of a purge and not one time did I see. LET THE PURGE BEGINNNNNNN. @JupiterPaladin :oops::oops::D:D:D I'm sorry

    I'm late to the party but the people made the effort and nobody claimed their items. Purge what you need to get the characters down. Another idea is as one pif is added it bumps another off the list.

    I understand this way of thinking...but...some may not have another to offer up. That could put a damper on the claims, if someone only had one knife to PIF. They would be nervous. Just sayin.

    @Monofletch
    Sorry, wasnt trying to rain on your parade.
    Another option could be, if the PIF isnt claimed in 6 months-year then it automatically becomes a “no PIF required.”
    Just a thought.

    That doesn’t handle the members that aren’t responding to the thread in the first place.

    Youre absolutely right.

    I shoulda brought an umbrella, because my parade is starting to get wet.

    If only a few changed their PIF it would make a difference...... and keep the ball rolling.
    That being said the reason behind this thread is the “good will” and not the items, right?

    I agree 100%.
    I was just thinking out loud on the idea of cleaning up the PIF item list. :D

    Not a PIF but just sharing, we've been checking about Pruner blades and throwing Harvesters in the PIF' thread, showing love for Alox's.

    I just got this nasty little solo pruner knife in. It was soooooo budget friendly!

    [​IMG]

    Other edcs for this week in the background for size comparison. This thing is an ultralight at 1.2 ounces with a chisel ground blade that is super thin. And just like the little blade on the Pioneer Pruner that Chad sent me that Eric has now it glides through cardboard like a warm knife through butter.

    Ok for the sake of getting back to the regularly scheduled PiF'ing here is what I would like to try first.

    I will separate into regular and PiF not required. We'll say after 3 months, items drop to the PiF not required list. I will reach out at that point to check with the user to see if they would like to change offerings instead. For existing old offerings, I will go ahead and start reaching out this evening. I do want more focus on the good will than on the items, but we should also be mindful of offering things that are too niche. Let me know if anyone has objections!

    Works for me. I'm happy to offer the CRKT Tighe Rod and the J. Hue Scale blanks without a PIF required.

    I like it!
    Although I like the niche options; maybe just circle back with sometging else if you don't get any bites...
    Heck, I keep thinking about the 5 blade sowbelly but realize that I don't really *need* it and back down again before I post anything.
    Maybe people get cold feet?
