    Guys let's keep the status quo for now. And let me try an outreach campaign for the first 30 pif. Gimme some time to check in with folks. I'll direct them back to the thread, give them the option to swap pif and if we don't hear from them I say we cross the item off and just mark them a wash?

    Ok so I stopped outreach at #28 as that got us pretty current (up to the June PIF's roughly)

    I left the below note either in a PM to the poster or on their homepage tagging them back to the thread.

    "Just a friendly roll call from the PIF thread. The group is trying to clean up the PIF list and wanted to ask if you're pif is still valid or if you would mind switching it out for something different since no one is claiming your PIF? Would you mind checking in on the thread?"

    FYI some last seen on BF updates
    #20 last seen on BF in February
    #32 last seen on BF in June

    Dr. knife arrived!! @RoachBelly44
    Its gonna be the perfect small blade to throw in with my hiking first aid kit! Thanks a ton!
    Amazing that i finally got to check one out, as AG Russel knives are hard to aquire here in Canada.

    Please oh please, someone claim the Tenacious and the BM blue box kit...its so lonely here just laying around. Its time for it to do some work!!

    Edit to add:Off thread topic...I own a few front flippers, and must say...I do not like the flipping action on the metamorph...the kizer feist breaks in better and is a solid knife. Just my two cents. If budget allows, a burger LEXK on washers is a fantastic front flipper.

    Happy you got it! I was really nervous about the customs part. Seems like it took a while, so I was worried. Good on ya, northern neighbors! Also, I never even thought of it for a first aid knife....duh....how perfect.

    Another concern I have with keeping tabs on old accounts, I think a few were well in the green, like dsalazar. Maybe he was an exception but there have been a lot of PIFs with no claims in this thread, even from first time participants.

    Thank you for the efforts of reaching out.

    I really think people don't want to just jump in with us. Or they might feel awkward saying "I'll take your stuff"

    I said b4, it took me awhile but I'm so glad I did.

    It took me a while too. Its a “pride” thing i believe. I was nervous too. Didnt want to not be able to have something worth what i was claiming.

    As am I, had a bunch of blades that were in the category, I’m never going to use this again but their mine. I have been able to make friends and check out some cool items without the financial commitment.

    I went the opposite way. Dipped my toe in by making PiFs but have yet to claim anything. Just waiting at this point for the right thing to come along.

    If there was more information about the ins and outs on the first page it might help new people know what to do. I just had to ask though, and everyone was super helpful.

    Speaking of the purge... I really need to get some of my collection on the exchange... and maybe a few more on here as well... Feel like it has ballooned and I most definitely don't use them all :( Need to make some room for new users and experiences

    Edit: Sidenote: I think once we exceed total posts for this thread... new thread should be named something like "Pay It Forward: Part 3 - The Purge" :D
