Posting a fob after all?

Hello! I signed up as a new member recently, and I opted to pick up my fob from the space. However, it’s become apparent that it’s now going to be more convenient to get it posted to me - who should I contact about that?

Hey, welcome to the space!

I’ll post a fob to your address in the membership system tomorrow so it should be with you by Thursday!

Thankyou! Given that I’m mostly free during the day, a couple of questions:

  1. Is it okay to visit by myself for the first time, or do I need an induction?
  2. Is there anything specifcally I should know / read (besides the documentation on the site) before doing 1)?
    I’m familiar with hackspaces in general, and technical spaces, and I am a functioning sensible adult :slight_smile:

It’s in the post. :slight_smile:

You’re very welcome to just show up when it arrives - enclosed with your fob is a welcome flyer, and inside the space by the light switches you’ll find a member handbook for any questions.

If you think there is something missing from the process I’ll be genuinely happy to hear it so we can improve the process! :slight_smile:

I’m in the same situation: signed up yesterday evening, tried to activate a fob, but couldn’t get the reader to scan the details.

If someone could post me a fob, that’d be great, ta.

Sure thing - apologies about that. Your fob is being posted today. :slightly_smiling_face:

Top banana! Ta.

Sorry to mess people about, but I’m still fobless.

The letter arrived, with a welcome note containing details of the fob ID, but the fob itself was nowhere to be seen. I’ve double-checked our mailbox and on the drive, but it’s not there.

Oh no! You’re not messing anyone around at all - sorry you didn’t get your fob.

Was the envelope damaged at all?
It’s the second time this has happened.

I’ll be happy to post you another fob of course (should arrive Monday or Tuesday) but if it’s more convenient for you to pop by this weekend it’s looking like there will be people about.

Let me know - sorry again!

Not sure of the exact state of the envelope when it arrived - my wife was the one who opened it and she had no idea there was supposed to be something inside other than the note. She said that there was a small tear already there. Examining the disintegrated remains of the envelope, it does look like someone may have deliberately torn it to get the fob out. It could, of course, have been an accidental tear, but the length of it does look really suspicious.

If you could try posting another one, that would be the easiest option for me, ta.
