    Trust a hippy. "I got stoned & I misplaced it" It will turn up on cash in the attic, or the old bus carboot sale. Lets hope it isn't Antiques on the road show.

    I think perhaps we need a new way of organising it. Is this the second or third attempt now??

    I think we need a central co-ordinator as the pass it on method doesn't seem to have worked so far.

    How can it get lost this many times? This sucks, it's a brilliant idea and much more fun (passing it around I mean) than just all making our pages and sending to one person, but I think it might have to come to that else it's never going to get finished.

    Could we not all make pages and send em to one person to stick in a scrapbook. That person could take photos of all the pages and post em here so we can all see it, and then the book could come to gatherings and things so that people could look through it without it getting lost?

    I know that isn't as fun as passing it around, but it's getting a bit ridiculous now, we're on what, book three?! And it's never gotten past the first few people

    I think that's probably the only solution. I remember there being a discussion years ago that we could scan them in in high res and actually make copies so that everyone who wants one can have a copy each. I would be happy to take that one on, as it seems pretty obvious that the current method doesn't work.

    I heard it had been printed out on to tea towels and they were being sold around Brighton market. Only joking.

    Oh I totally agree, it's much more fun to do it that way

    Just don't think it's very fair on the people who have put time and effort into their pages for the book to then go missing. This isn't the original book is it, it's book two, if not book three - the first one had some awesome stuff in it and then got lost

    If it can be done as originally planned, and made to work efficiently, then i'm all for it

    It was May 2008 when Chegzy came up with the idea, so nearly five years ago ... in that time the book has only gotten through about 6 people, gotten lost several times along the way, and had to be replaced at least once

    If we're going to keep it as a travelling book, we have to find a better way of keeping it moving

    I totally agree. Perhaps we need to update the list, find out who's still interested. Then only send it on to people once they've confirmed they're still up for it. Either that or have one central person who sends the book on and has it sent back to them to send on to the next person and so on, so that they always know where it is. That way they know who to chase if it vanishes again!!

    That would be the way forward if we wanna keep it travelling, I reckon. It's no-one's fault really, i'm terrible at keeping to deadlines myself, but we definitely need to find a more efficient way of doing it else it'll be about two decades before it gets round everyone!

    If other people are happy with the idea, I'm happy to be the central person/chaser. I've been on here every day for over seven years now, I'm not going to disappear any time soon. And even if I did, most of you know where to find me!

    That way we'd keep it travelling and everyone would get to see it for real, but I can also scan it in each time it comes back so that if it disappears again it's not lost forever.
