Welcome, welcome!!

Welcome to the grand opening of the first ever gift ARC program!!*
*I'm not 100% sure this is actually the first, but I haven't come across anything like this, so I'm saying it.

Wow. What started as a little idea floating around in my head on Twitter has turned into a whole blog thanks to all of you awesome people saying what a cool idea this was. What's weird is that this won't be a "blog" by standard uses and definitions, so let me give you a small tour.

So, see the tabs beneath that prettyful banner? Yeah, get familiar with those. You'll most likely be using those more than post page. Below is a summary of each page.

The Current LIST - The current list of ARCs up for grabs. Most of the time this will be offline and will open for periods (usually evenings) for requesting. That's because, OMG, I can't go to the post office every day, guys. For reals.

What is this? - The ARCycling Program's history. How I came up with it and the philosophy behind it. I'm sure no one will ever read this. But if you care, it's there.

How does it work? - This page is for Requesters (yes, that's your official name). It has all the information you might ever need to know in how ARCycling works. It also explains why this is NOT a trade program.

Can I Cycle some ARCs? - This page is for the Donators (yes, that's your official name). It has all rules and guidelines for donating ARCs to this awesomesauce cause.

And with that... *cuts ribbon*

I do ask that all of you pretty people are patient with me as I work out the kinks of this process. If you have ANY questions, comments, thoughts on the rules, thoughts on life, feel free to leave a comment on this post and I will respond!
