Average waiting time?

Post by Temperance Rose »

Just an idea that for each celebrity you can put the amount of time usually taken for the autograph to be recieved and for those who haven't been tried put 'not applicable' underneath...

Nice idea !
Well, I only have one until now.. It's Bill Gate's.. I believe it's autopenned so it's relatively fast.. It came back in 2 weeks and a half. Abou the same time it takes for a return to sender i think...

I don't think this is a feasible idea at all.

In my opinion, there is no such thing as an average waiting time, and it would put a lot of people under false illusionment as to when they might receive a response. You could send the same time as me to any celebrity, and they might reply to you in one month - but to me in seven months time. You would also get people of different geographical locations confused - the time it takes to receive a reply from the U.K from a celeb inside the U.K, is vastly different to if you live in...say South Africa, Australia, the U.S, etc.
AUTHENTIC, OR NOTHING AT ALL.

The average waiting time varies from each and every celeb to each and every country. You should check previous celebs for specific send and return days if you would like to know how long to expect for a reply.

Theres no such thing as "average waiting time", even for certain celebs. Ive seen some people take days and another time take over a year, so its impossible.

Also even if it WAS possible, it would just mean those with "short waiting times" get abused by people who just want a boost to their collection, whether thery're a fan or not :roll:

Great idea. Although I think that a lot is situational here, it can be faster or slower. stars are not robots who do one amount of work every day.
