    This is the loaner tracking thread which shows where all NA loaners are, which ones are ending and about to go on sale, etc. We'll still start new threads to announce new loaners and collect sign ups, but once it's underway all management of logistics/updates will happen here so I and others don't have a million places to check.

    Notes:
    Keep each item for 5 days per person. PM the next person on the list for a shipping address, and post here once you ship out. Similarly, post here once you receive. Names in bold above indicate who has the loaner, or who's about to receive it. Insurance amounts are carrier insurance and are partial amounts. We cover the rest from the "SBAF self-insurance fund." When we need to replenish the fund, we'll ask for $10 contributions to [email protected] on select loaners, for now no contributions necessary.

    If you're interested in purchasing a loaner, PM @Marvey, @sphinxvc, and @zerodeefex with an offer.

    Notes:
    Though we collect names of those interested in purchasing loaners, we'll sell to whomever/anywhere so we get maximum donated funds back into our pool for future loaners

    The HP-1 should be arriving at BMF's place tomorrow, but I'll let him chime in directly (cheatposting here so I can see thread updates).

    Added some names of those interested in purchasing loaners, if you expressed interest in some loaner and I overlooked it, just let me know here. To reiterate what I said in the OP about collecting names, we just do it to make things easier during time of sale, but we definitely reserve the right to sell to whomever and anywhere so we can get maximum funds back into the loaner pool.

    PS, thanks @Wfojas.

    I'm actually really liking this, makes life so much easier. We had little tidbits of information spread across a needlessly large number of pages/threads before.

    Etymotic ER4XR and ER4XS guys, please post updates in this thread as well, that thread is closed.

    Can you clarify what declaring interest entails and results in? My understanding was that all loaners would be put up for sale after their tours, regardless of whether interest has been declared or not. I take it we're moving from the auction structure to a set price (e.g., the Elear FS thread yesterday), which seems like a good move to maximize future loaner funds and minimize time wasted sorting through PM bids. Is expressing interest the same as a right of first refusal at the eventual listed price? Is anyone allowed to express interest or just those who participated on a given item's loaner tour?

    I don't see the need for expressions of interest. Just post the stuff in the FS forum. To make it fair for those who aren't constantly by a computer, maybe we could post the item in the FS forum at the desired price, give 24-48 hours for Friends/Contributors to post a firm commitment in the thread. After the commitment period, run those usernames through a random generator and whoever gets selected gets it at that price. If the user backs out and doesn't pay, they get a temp ban or something and you move to the next name randomly selected.

    Anyone can express interest. It's not a system per say. It's just an easy way for us to check if there are willing people to offload the loaner to. @Marvey might use it, might just put a thread up, his call. Typically what happens behind the scenes is I send him a PM or text and alert him about something that should be put up for sale, and I also mention people who've asked to buy it. So this is a way for me to keep track until that PM/text.

    On the Holo Spring, @sphinxvc , @badf00d and @MuppetFace had to drop out, so prepping to ship to @Artasia . I will try to find a way to double box it as this is currently a disaster waiting to happen as its packed. Will try to find packaging to get it out safely tomorrow.
