    We have had several complaints of unfair wishlists, and after being sent a few links - I agree

    If you state the person must have 30 (or whatever) non FPC/HV coupons, please ensure they do - it is unfair to the others riding who stuck to the guidelines and get 2-3 regular coupons in return for an FPC sent to someone with an insane wishlist which did not meet the rules - because all of their wishlist was unicorns or FPCs/HV

    If you state that FPCs must be 3 (or whatever) points, move all their FPCs to that section and have them add more regular coupons.

    As a conductor, if you set rules, they should be followed and it is your responsibility to ensure that wishlists are edited before posting to meet those rules

    Please note that this is only for trains where these types of rules are stated, all trains which are for unicorns, FPCs etc are fine but if you set a rule of reg coupons too, stick to it please

    I have PM'd a few people lately when I host a train and their WL doesn't meet the guidelines. I'd also like to point out the importance of reading ALL the rules on a train- if it states something like "no multiples unless stated on WL" then don't send multiples!!

    I have what can be considered a difficult WL but I have a ton of coupons on my WL and I state at the top of my list that I'm open to adding more if needed. I would prefer a rider or conductor to PM me if there was a problem with my WL than go straight to a moderator, and if I'm conducting a train I would hope that my riders know that I'm always open to PM's and I will always try to help if I can.

    I ALWAYS when conducting trains tell my riders if they are having problems with someones wishlist please contact me and I will either om the rider or help with coupons if I can. I ALSO when riding a train state if you need more ideas let me know. That being sent I hope pixel you didn't send me a FPC due to thinking my wishlist is hard if so I will mail it back to you because as I said to MANY people I have no problem with stamps. Due to me condensing I don't ALWAYS have a HUGE wishlist but didn't think it was unfair wishlist

    sheets, all of the PMs were general
    In some cases when I asked them for examples, they linked to trains they were not even riding, just the blatant examples / cases where someone mentioned it in the train thread
    But it is more of a general theme

    Nope, I don't eat fish and you wanted it so I sent it, I sent FPCs to quite a few people on that train - this isn't about me - as you can see from the likes on the OP / replies - there are numerous people who want this reminder posted

    Thanks for posting this! I'm having this issue on my own trains, as well as on the trains by some other conductors.

    I'd like to just add, as well, that it is a HUGE pet peeve of mine as a conductor that when a rider sends me an unreasonable wishlist and I email them back citing which coupons are unicorns or have expired.... DON"T write me back arguing about how every single coupon is valid because your brother's friend's cousin's girlfriend called the company---just add some more coupons by looking at the 2013 Scan thread or at the other wishlists already posted.

    I admit that I haven't been as pro-active as I could be in making sure all wishlists have atleast 30 easy to find coupons, mainly because underneith my y exterior, I'm a bit sensitive and I don't like the back lash from certain riders.... but I will be from now on

    In fact.... I think I have a new train idea coming on.....

    I agree completely, that is what I have found too. I use to send lists back far more often, but I am sick of constantly getting argued with about it!

    I will send more lists back now for revision and include a link to this thread (along with the 2013 scan thread -which I always include anyways)

    thank you for posting FallenPixels -everyone needed a reminder.

    I am fine with people running unicorn/FPC trains if they want to - but don't join them if you aren't willing to follow the rules and conductors, you set the rules make them stick to them.

    Even with a regular list, you could be sending a HV/FPC 3pointer and getting reg coupons back, but then it is your choice and not forced by the nature of the wishlist

    One I was sent, I checked against the coupon scan and of 40 coupons, there are only scans of 5 - yes we all know the FPC for ketchup exists, but who is really giving it up on a reg VWT not knowing what they will get back etc

    I have been asked to revise my wishlist add something i may have forgotten or was omitted due to the rules of a previous train, and have and will continue to adjust it accordingly, i tAke no offense at all I actually feel bad that I made the error in the first place ,
    you know you go back through your wishlist and make sure its up to date and always seem to miss something especially when riding more than one train
    its easy to go in for a unicorn train and add unicorns or a simple style of no $ amounts but when you have to make sure there are x number of websaver or other online coupons but when riding an on going one like the exchange train i have my wishlist set as rrrlf rrlf and rlf which are equal to 3, 2, & 1 but for a points train it needs to be stated understandably, and I have done so happily
