The fulfillment company that we contracted to send out these items told us that they will ship these in the next couple of weeks. Everyone should be receiving things soon.

Indeed, IMHO as long as it's written somehow big "Couchsurfing" or "CS" people will find you :)

It's clear nobody from CS HQ can do something to make things go faster for your very own person even if you have a big meeting tomorow.

A known fact is your local postal system is not very quick (example: the verification postcard can take from 4 week to 3 months)

So be positive and enjoy your meeting instead of keeping ranting here :)

So for we in Africa, we should be expecting ours in more than Three month now. :)

Posted February 27th, 2013 - 10:56 am by from Brugge, Belgium (Permalink)
Guess what!! They arrived. Now I got a banner and lots of bands and even a T-shirt. Too bad I didn't have this when I was still motivated to organise events. Now I don't. These days I avoid talking about Couchsurfing, because all people can ask me is "Why did it change, why are there so many problems, it used to be better, why aren't you organising things anymore, why, why, why..."
So what shall I do with those gifts, they even make me sad.

Couchsurfing finally gained a sense of humour. I just received my new CS Banner and wristbands. Please let them know they have arrived and I said thank you. HAHAHAHAHAHHA

Thank again

Dear all,

I would love to receive even a banner for the Meetings to show, where WE are.
Please, if possible, don't forget to send me this material.

With very kind regards,

Dingo and anyone else who are reading this can come to our summercamp and throw some cs gear for the crowd:

If the package is already on the way, nothing CS can do - you'd have to arrange for the person at your old address to forward it for you, if you don't have a forward setup at the post office.

If it has not been sent, perhaps you can try contacting CS - https://couchsurfing.zendesk.com/anonymous_requests/new
