a question before I sign up... why are we having age groups? My last secret pal was 19 and I am 37 yet It hink I madeher day with my parcels. I know my secret pal was yopunger than me... and yet she managed to make me smile with each package... just wondered why you felt the need to split us up by age... I know I have a lot more in common with younger folks, probably cos I like to teach them.

So, who else already has 90% of their secret pal shopping done?

Some participants from SP6 suggested that they felt "out of touch" with their pals due to widely differing age brackets. So, for SP7, while we may not match up folks exactly according to age group, we thought we'd at least keep track of generational differences.

You could always specify, beside your age group, that you'd like to be paired randomly. That way, the folks who don't like the idea of sticking within their own demographic can be left out of that pairing process.

you highlight the button and save the image to your computer. Then you can upload it to a free photo server (photobucket or flickr) and get a html tag for your blog. Cut and paste the tag (photobucket will write the HTML for you) to the templates section of your blog and link it to the SP7 page.

I can't remember if I said in my info that I don't care about age group, but just in case I don't. Age doesn't bother me at all.

Also any idea when the questionairre will come out?

Since I am 31, I answered the age question with "25-34" but I have no age preference when it comes to being matched up. Will the questionnaire be the same as SP6?

To those who've asked - the questionnaire for SP7 is similar to the one used for SP6 - however, we've added a few new questions. I think it will be distributed after sign-ups are completed, but we haven't firmed up a date, yet.

One of these days, there will be so many questions in the questionairre that it will take a week to answer it and an entire afternoon to read your pal's!


(Humour! I like that the questionairre is so long - it's a great read.)
