The Sneakernet is the site's postal system, which allows you to send postcards within and beyond the Electromagnetic Field site.
Any problems? Call POST (7678) from a phone.
Sending your mail via the Sneakernet
Mailboxes around the site will have a box containing postcards. Alternatively, pick up a postcard from the Sneakernet desk in the Info Tent.
Drop your postcard in one of the mailboxes around the site, clearly addressed with who/where you would like it delivered to. Collections should occur on a best-effort hourly basis during Info Tent opening hours. If you are sending a postcard to a person and you know their DECT number, village, etc, please include it!
If you wish to send a postcard into the default world via Royal Mail, include a clear address, attach the correct postage, and it will be taken to a Post Office at the end of the event. Stamps can be purchased from the shop.
Delivering for the Sneakernet
If you want to try delivering a couple of postcards, head to the Sneakernet desk in the Info Tent and make yourself known. You will be given a couple of of postcards from an outbox. From there, walk around the camp to deliver them!
Can't find the person or place? Not a problem, return the postcard to the undelivered box. If you're up for a challenge, try to deliver postcards from that box.
