    Default The Official TBCS TGIMBOEJ Thread.... Sign up here.

    Q. What is it?

    A. A Tgimboej is a USPS flat rate box full of electronic stuffs that you can not bring your self to throw away but also might not use in the near future. It is a way to share components, and other electronics stuff with friends and members of the community who you otherwise may not get a chance to interact with. It is also a great way to get cool components and other electronic stuffs that you might find useful where as the person who put it in the box had no use for. I mean I have a junk box full of electronic components both used and unused and all kinds of other goodies and I am sure others on here do to.

    The official site.

    US to US flat rate prices:
    Priority Mail Regular Flat-Rate Box (FRB1) US to US $10.35 Size 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
    Priority Mail Regular Flat-Rate Box (FRB2) US to US $10.35 Size 13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8"
    Priority Mail Large Flat-Rate Box (Domestic Addresses) US to US $13.95 Size 12-1/4" x 12-1/4" x 6"

    I will be keeping up with the list and adding names to it every day. In the event I forget to add you then please send me a PM.

    The rules.
    Recipient Conditions for The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk:
    1. Take out and add as much electronics junk as you like (but keep it small enough to fit in a USPS flat-rate Priority Mail box or the equivalent for your postal system).
    2. Write up, photograph, document or otherwise publish in some way online at least one thing you took out (suggested flickr tag: TGIMBOEJ, see also: flickr group ). ****I Use my blog http://cjganttphotography.com/blog****
    3. There is a little book in the box. Write something memorable or just sign your name to the book. When the book is full someone will add another and we will send the completed book to Paul.
    4. Within two weeks pass the box along to the next person on the list. Before mailing it to them, send them the name list in a pm and make sure that they want to participate. Also remember to get their shipping addy.
    5. Make sure you can afford the $8-12 it takes to mail the box out. It sucks to get one of these started and then lose it because someone bit off more than they can chew.
    6. This is going to be limited to TCBS Members who have 100+ post and a rep of at least 2 green boxes. (its not hard to get 100 post.) Not meaning to offend anyone but this will help deter dead beats who will get the box and disappear.
    7. Make sure to document the box and what you took and what you added. This only takes a few photos and a few minutes to do. Post the documents in either your own thread or in this one.
    8. To be fair to others lets insure that the box makes it around the list before going to the same person twice.
    9. Any member who has been inactive for more than 3 weeks at the time of their turn and can not be contacted via PM will be skipped on the list.
    10. The recipient of the box is responsible for all shipping charges that occur for shipping the box to the next person.
    11. Small parts such as screws, leds, components, etc should be placed in a zip-lock bag.
    12. No highly flammable materials. No lighters / matches, or Weapons.
    13. AMENDMENT: Members of TBCS wishing to get on the list and do not meet the post and reputation requirements (100 Post and at least of 2 green rep boxes) will have their names placed in red. This will save their spot on the list, but they will still have to have met the requirements by the time it is their turn. If they have not met the requirements by their turn they will be moved to the bottom of the list.
    14. AMENDMENT #2:After some discussion between the staff we would like to ask that you do not include knives or any type of weapon in the box. This includes razor blades, pocketknives and any chemical or device that could go BOOM. If there is anything in the current box we ask that who ever has it please remove those devices.

    EDIT: Canada is also allowed. Although it is expensive.

    Flatrate boxes can now be shipped to Canada.

    Canada has been added to the USPS flat rate delivery zones. Not sure if its a higher fee but I will look into it.

    Added 985323 and Luke122

    I will pick up a flat rate box today and begin filling it with goodies. It will take me a few days to put everything in it as my grandmother will be going into the hospital tomorrow for some major back surgery and I will be spending the next 3 days at the hospital only coming home to sleep. But I should be sending it to Nevermind in a week or so.

    I was thinking maybe circulate it around the US, then Canada, then Europe, then Australia (or asia), and keep it going. Do one country/continent at a time to save on shipping and everybody still gets it.
