GR.2-SENTINEL IN SILHOUETTE
From a position in front of Our Lady's Grotto, one has a most impressive view of the statue of Mary Our Mother, silhouetted against the distant sky. There on the Sanctuary's upper level She stands in regal prominence- Mary, the world's Queenly Sentinel.
SANCTUARY OF OUR SORROWFUL MOTHER
"...if your profile is empty or only consists of wishlist you'll unfortunately receive an empty card."
I guess I understand why someone might do that. Postcrossing is a strange mix of fun and excitement and annoyance and boredom. I don't think I would want to get away with sending an empty Card. It seems like a cop-out. It's easy to send "Happy Postcrossing" I never really thought of how aggravating it might be to receive a completely BLANK card. Isn't the objective then introduce yourself or get to know others? If wishlist profiles get your knickers in a twist I suppose you could report the accounts and then they would get pulled and they could not receive postcards until they fixed their accounts? ... It's 5 days until Christmas. I am late getting my postcards out [over] 30 days. I am late wrapping gifts for my wife and child.
Sent via postcrossing to Eichhoernchen. I hope they do not think I was being too critical. I still consider myself a pretty green/young postcrossing person. I will come across some account with a strange request that the sender do not do. Some people have strong issues about getting enveloped cards or unpoststamped postcards. I recently saw someone who said they do not want their address entered into any sort of database if their name comes up on a draw. I did not even know that was a thing. And I think every 10 or so draws I get an account that has all of their landmark cards highlighted (i.e. 500th card sent or received. 1000th sent or received card Etc). I am trying to imagine what I would be like when I have transcended to someone who has sent out 500 postcards or the previous person who has over 3000 postcards sent or received. I feel like I would be some zerofucks given type of person vs someone who had a new arrangement of requests or demands. Time will tell.
