  • Participation: You must be an active member of [Baren] in order to participate in this exchange.
    The mailing list that makes up [Baren] is open to everyone to join, and the membership is thus made up of a mix of 'lurkers' and active participants in the forum. Signing up for an Exchange obliges your active participation in [Baren] discussions... If you remain a 'mystery' name, it leaves everyone feeling quite uncomfortable.

  • Communications: email for coordinator: coordinator85@barenforum.org
    It is essential that the coordinator be in close and timely communication with you. You must respond promptly to e-mails sent from the coordinator and must notify the coordinator of any change in e-mail address. If you become 'lost' and do not respond to communications from the coordinator, you may be dropped from the exchange without further notice. If this occurs after the Drop-out deadline, a penalty may imposed.
  • Rejected prints: If your prints do not conform to the above specifications for Medium, Image size, Paper size, Paper type, and/or Delivery deadline then the coordinator should promptly reject them, notify you by email, and (if you enclosed sufficient postage) promptly return them. You may repair and/or replace the prints prior to the delivery deadline or drop out of the exchange prior to the drop-out deadline without penalty.
  • Penalty: The [Baren] Exchange Manager will promptly notify you by email if it is determined that you are subject to penalty, which may prevent you from future participation in [Baren] Exchanges. Please see this page for all the Exchange Rules of Participation.
  • Delivery information: You must enclose a print for each participant plus ONE ARCHIVE PRINT (see list below), a self-addressed mailing label, and sufficient return postage (in the coordinator's native currency or postage). If you do not know the exact amount of return postage, please send more than you think will be required, a guideline is $12 for USA to USA delivery, $25 for international delivery. Please deliver your prints in a package that can easily be reused for shipping the collated suite back to you.
