I notice a lot of people are putting rules and conditions on their Raoks... how does everybody feel about that? Is that a good idea and why?

idk it depends IMO. if youve got a RAOK that you want to go to a specific criteria of people (ex. people whove never had a planted tank and want to start one, so they list as for new people only and ask to see pictures of said tank) then you want to have rules so it doesnt just get *gobbled up*. But theres deffinetly a limit to rules you should put on something youre trying to do for free basically (other than shipping)

Random act of kindness. It's where people get rid of stuff they otherwise would have thrown away.

Robert,

I guess it really depends on what type of RAOK they are running. For instance, if they are doing a RAOK for newbie, then the rules should set limit to only newbies, however if the RAOK is for more sensitive plants then the rules should be set for people to have conditions which is adequate for the plants to thrive. I don't necessarily see rules as a bad thing, but sometimes too much of it can be a nuisance.

there are also rules for entertainment, the random drawing type RAOK have some rules which may require participant to perform a certain task for qualification. These tasks may be as simple as saying thank you to someone, displaying their tanks, listing recipes, etc., which IMO is a personal preference of the RAOKer, and a minor task to the RAOkee. I have to admit that I have done such RAOK and have participated in such RAOK.

All in all, the way I look at it is that setting rules can go either way(good or bad for the hobby). It really depends on what type of rules and the reasoning behind the rules.

Proud 39th Member of the RAOK club!
