    I have no clue what this is. Can somebody explain? I just saw an ad for it and clicked it. It toesn't explain anything on the website.

    I spoke with the Silverbell postmaster and they gave me the Cherrybell Postmaster info to check with to find out if anything is in the works that we might be able to participate in at the Post Office in conjuntion with the release date of the stamps or anything else .. though I might add this is the same day as Flowing Wells on March 28th, though much earlier in the day.. so please let me know now if you don't want to pursue this before I get any further with it if your not interested. I checked into this after a few TFF members mentioned being interested in finding out if anything is planned surrounding the stamp release.

    It?s worth finding out what the deal would be with this, information won't hurt and it's not a commitment, just more information and maybe an option.

    If the photos Damien posted are true, the R2-D2 box is off of Euclid, right next the University Services Building. Right near the Marriot on Campus.

    Well, they could have been really good Photoshop Jobs. I don't know.

    Well, today's the day. Does anyone know anything yet other than that they are releasing stamps? I haven't gotten an e-mail yet.

    Site is live now.[face_dancing]

    Notice: $.41 stamps, not the $.39 first class that we have now. Released on May 26th. Proof that a price increase is in the works.:mad:

    LOL.... voting on the stamp... 62 votes so far.... Vader is in the fore-front (suprise)

    I voted for Luke myself.

    Looks like we will all be in LA when the release date arrives. So that pretty much lets out any event for here in town.. but if that changes we will find out about it hopefully.

    I think I've seen enough pictures of the post box, thank you, Hal.

    I'll have to try and track the R2 box down one of these days.

    I voted Luke on the USPS site...it's such a classic pose

    I've never received the e-mail so I can confirm my vote(for the x-wing).
    I sense imperial treachery afoot.

    Third time I've voted for the x-wing and still no response.

    I can receive two to three scam money offers from Nigeria per week, but the US Postal Service can't get through to me.:rolleyes:

    I've had the same problem. I was also signed up to be notified on the 28th that their site was to be updated with an announcement but I never got that e-mail either...

    One of the email addressed I used ([face_devil]) ended up in my spam. be sure to check there. Also, your email provider might suck and it takes a few hours for it to process.

    On another note, you can vote once PER DAY. So those of us that voted for Luke can do it every day for the next 50 days or so.

    I found my confirmation email in the junk mail of my hotmail account. I just added them to my allowed senders.
