We have added three new rules:

  • No trades or reimbursement.

  • Do not use multiple accounts, the use of multiple accounts may lead to a ban.

  • Accounts must be 30 days old, have 300 comment karma, and have recent non spam or request activity in the past 30 days to post a request or enter to receive on offers.

The first rule was there to start with but under a different rule and after an edit to the rules got lost so it's now it's own separate rule. There was a lack of space to individualize everything in the sidebar but now that we have a rules section in the wiki we have the space to be more specific.

The second rule is kind of an unspoken rule in all giving subreddits, we're adding it to help be clear.

The last rule has been discussed at length in mod mail and we decided to give it a shot. It's based on a rule from /r/Random_acts_of_pizza but is not quite as high of a requirement.

Rules in full can be found here.

Edited to correct a typo.

Hello everyone! I've really been loving the look of small, geometric tattoo designs, so I'd like to make some for you guys! (You don't have to get it tattooed, of course, but let me know if you do!) I've always wanted to draw my own, so give me a simple little idea (like a moon or a cat or an hourglass, idk, anything) and I'll draw up something! It's a win win for us both!

Thanks!

My wife and I work as volunteers at a children's home in Swaziland.

She has been working hard on getting healthy over the past few years, and would love to have a way to track her fitness.

We have a friend that will be coming from the US on 24 October, so he can bring it with him.

Thanks

I'm going to be undergoing gallbladder surgery in a few weeks, and I have read all of the books I own. In November, I plan to get my level 1 reiki certification, and I am very excited.

I would like a copy of beginner level books related to reiki and learning reiki, if anyone is willing to donate some. I have gotten lots of good vibes and made friends on Reddit, and I wonder if I could get some help with this! I will send you a thank you card in return. c:

Today is the one year anniversary of one of my best friend's death. He was one of my five college roommates when we were all in school a few years ago, and we were all very close. I'm currently at work and I've never been more excited to be working because it has kept my mind off everything so far. So many of my friends and family have sent me supportive messages today and it felt fantastic to have people reach out. Don't know if this is the right subreddit for it, but I could use some kind words from a random Internet stranger or some words of wisdom from someone who has been through this on a day like today. Thanks.

Yeah, I know.

hello people. I'm going to be straigh. I'm unemployed as of today and living with my mother as I study for a test to enter university.

My mother and I live with 3 thousand reais per month, some thing near 725.71 dollars as today's value. And I love gaming and would love to play with my friend the newest games launching. But for these, I need a powerful notebook and the prices here in Brazil are far beyond what I have.

I know its something very expensive, but there is no warm in trying. Thank you for the time and sorry for the bad English

I know this is a big request. My family of 4 and 3 pets (2 cats and a dog) were evacuated from Wilmington, NC due to Hurricane Florence. The situation in Wilmington is getting dire with looting, power outage etc. We can't make it back to town due to multiple roads closed due to flooding and we are running out of options staying in the Raleigh area as far as hotels and funds go.

If anyone has hotel reward points, specifically IHG rewards, as that is a hotel that has availability and allows pets, that they are willing to give to help, I would be extremely grateful!

I made a request thread awhile back and /u/WomanInAVan got me some shoes and my daughter dinosaur pajamas and a DC Superhero Girls book. (which she loves and has been carrying around with her since)

I am very thankful and grateful for you helping me out. Thank you very much!

I am a burgeoning ceramic art student and could definitely use some new tools. Most of mine are worn out or broken. I just don't have the money to buy/replace them. The set I'm looking at only costs about $25 and I've added it to my wishlist on amazon. It's the Arteza Pottery & Clay Sculpting kit...the first thing on my list. I also added several other things to the list in case people were feeling generous. Thank you for taking the time to read my plea.

I think someone bought me a helmet! Thank you. I stupidly had it set to "surprise me ", so I guess I'll find out who when the package gets here~

--> Good afternoon everyone,

I previously made a post about needing bicycle accessories. I have a bicycle and would like to ride it to school, to save on transportation costs. So far, I have been walking and catching the shuttle to my campus but, on the way back I use the metro.

my bicycle accessories Amazon wishlist (lights: so I don't accidentally get hit by a car (⇀‸↼‶), other stuff. Don't feel obligated to click the link!)

Thanks for reading.

This is the version that comes with the base game and the DLC. I am really in no position to get it and I missed it on G2A when it went on sale (The US version sold out on G2A, it was a good deal :c).

It may be a lot to ask, and it's cool if nobody has a key or wants to get it. Thank you anyways <3

Lost my charger in a moving process, Amazon seller is looking for $12~ (inc. shipping) for one like this:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LQ4J3AG/ref=pe_2640190_350905710_TE_3p_dp_1

Anyone have a charger like this lying around? I have a few interviews next week and am low on funds but would greatly appreciate it if anyone has a spare charger like this that they could send me. I currently have a longer beard and have no way to get this hair off my face cost-effectively. Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help a brother out. I’m in the Phoenix, Arizona area if that matters.

Ok this is a big ask, but I really want an omnichord I’m trying to get a degree in music for when I go into college. I’m a basic person when it comes to music. The basics I need to learn are chords. I decided that the omnichord is the best option for this. It will help with chords, plus I can use this for music, as it sounds super pretty. Depending on where you look on eBay, they can be from 100-400 dollars with usually everything included. If I had this much, I would buy one right now. But being in high school, and me not being able to get a job, that dream doesn’t exist as of yet.

Thank you,

  • Luka

I understand entirely if nobody offers one, but this is the place to ask I guess :)

EDIT: Thank you to /u/KaiTran (you're probably tired of me thanking you lol) they fulfilled the request, so nobody else comment please.

Hello Reddit, I've just moved out of my parents' house in Spain to another country and everything is so depressing and different from what I expected. The room I'm renting isn't like the pictures (one of the walls even has a hole in it), I don't know anyone here, and I haven't been able to find a job yet. I know that if I ask my parents for help they would buy me a coffee machine for sure, but they are not economically okay right now and I don't want to worry them or cry in from of them.

So, if any of you could help me get a boost, a nice morning start with an old coffee machine you aren't using anymore I would be very thankful. I swear I would try to repay the favour somehow as soon as possible, and that I wouldn't be asking for it if I didn't really need it. Thank you Reddit.

I fell in love with watchmaking after watching Masahiro Kikuno's In Tune With Time. I reached out to Kikuno after watching his video for the first time and he recommended Watchmaking by George Daniels; it was the book that he used to get started.

Additionally, I would appreciate any broken or unwanted mechanical watches, especially antiques. I've dismantled a small Timex that I found on Ebay for cheap and the learning experience was priceless. Unfortunately, the watch did not survive my endeavor. More experience with fixing watches would be great.

Edit: I am in Texas

So... my birthday is a month later :P on 18th october I really want to play this game but i don't have money to buy it :(

I have received some gifts in the past as well, here on reddit (on my old account that i lost access to :P) and some on discord.(This is the first time i'm asking for a game tho :P) Tbh i am kinda worried that people here might develop some hate for me as i am just asking them to buy a $15 dollar game for a stupid reason...

That's all i have to say... i guess... thank you :)

Edit : Just realised I haven't posted a link to my steam account... :P Here it is - https://steamcommunity.com/id/catmare/

I'm moving in a week to a new house and I have 4 cats. One of my cats is new and I'm not sure how he'll respond to the move, I had plans to order these Calming Phermones but between the move and the hurricane prep, I cannot afford them.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I currently have 3 of the wall plugs but I need 2 more and I can never have enough of the refills. They've been a huge help with my cats so far and I'm out and need more.
