    Whooooooooooooooaaaaaa....I didn't know I wasn't the only one who did this lol.

    Granted, I've only been doing it with pets. Since the pet battles hit, I found that I have several copies of over 100 freaking pets (I collected pets on all my chars lol). So I would randomly start coming up with goofy stories, and mailing pets to people. I'm sure some of them were quite rare (I actually think I sent someone a Hyacinth Macaw once lol), but I didn't care, I just wanted to be rid of them! I still have two characters I had to make just for storage, for all the pets I've yet to get rid of. I thought about leveling them and trying to sell them...but where's the fun in that? :-) Several people have sent me thank you notes, some even sent me gold or some paltry items (or pets I didn't have!), most never said anything. One guy returned the pet and said he already had three of them lol. I think I've fired off about 40 or 50 pets so far. I haven't logged in for at least 2 months now, I may have to log in and send some more pets out after reading this :-)

    I remember selling battle pets to a friend and writing a detailed letter on how to properly take care of each one, trying to be funny in the process.

    Reminds me of something I did a couple christmases ago, I made a worgen alt called SantaPaws, dressed him in the santa hat and outfit and bought some Blue BoE items from the auction house, random ones. Then I went in search of level appropriate people who would be able to use the item as a temporary upgrade, traded them in the items, said "merry christmas" and then rode away.

    I actually made a poem made of achivementnames back in cata in a random hc, one of the players said "Dude, you're just like Eminem! :O"
    Was hilarious!
    Gotta find the screenshots later today.

    I used to send a single arrow (after unlimited ammo) to people I found worthy. It could be people who I had done dungeons, group quests or PvP with.

    Do similar stuff, especially when I'm taking a long break from WoW. I'm a hoarder of anything that has a use so my mailboxes are always filled. Didn't feel like dealing with all that stuff last time so I just sent it all to friends along with some $.

    I also have a weird thing about shirts I make. I'll randomly open trade and give people rich purple shirts.

    This reminds me of the day my mage guildie randomly sent me a stack of grey quality "turtle shell" and when I inquired what the heck they were doing in my mailbox he mumbled something about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    Unfortunately he hadn't made up a good story to type into the mail. :P

    I absolutely love your idea. I just now after seeing the post logged on and sent around a flower(Dreaming Glory) and wrote them a little "poem". It feels nice to light up people's day. And hopefully, I will get a reply saying thanks and whatnot.

    This is a really great idea and i've actually done similiar things before. I have one suggestion thought - We should call ourselves something and then put it in our mails. After a while we might get famous. :P
