Since I don't want to commit any Faux Pas (sp?), I was wondering if it is common for hand made gifts to be signed or have a camp name or something like that (non commercial of course).
Since I have a memory like a sieve, I like the idea. Something like that would help me remember the person who gifted it once I'm back in default land, but If the community has strong feelings about this I would hesitate to do it.

These were planned as special, personal gifts.
As for less personal gifting, our camp is planning to bring a large sculpted incense burner thingy and 10,000 incense sticks. Visitors would be encouraged to light one and take a few. Is this a sound plan? Or do you think there may be issues (moop, etc...).
Since we are only a 3 person camp this would of necessity be unattended most of the time.

In spare time, early on, I'd grab a cold drink and simply walk streets near my camp. I'd walk up to camps setting up and say "This is my first Burn, so I'm still trying to hear about it. Can I lend a hand and hear some stories?" or stuff to that effect.
Worked like a charm. I'm pretty quick about putting up carports, shade and tents, so often tired burners were glad to have the help from fresh hands.
