Week 468 on 23rd May is the 9th Anniversary, and because we like to do things that we know we can actually do, we're sticking with the ATC idea to mark the occasion.
  • Make an ATC (or some ATCS, you may want to send one to more than one person). There is no specific theme, but please include W9YWW somewhere on it.
  • On WOYWW 468, post as usual.
  • When you link, if you are joining the ATC swap, add an asterisk * to your name. It's the devil to remember, so don't worry if you forget, just link again. (Only the administrators can remove links, so don't worry , I'll get to it!
  • Get in touch with the next name on the list that shows an asterisk *; you need a postal address from whoever that is. Their presence and asterisk * means they're your recipient.
  • Post the ATC. Preferably on the day, certainly very soon.
  • Visit desks as usual.
  • If you've made more than one ATC,  swap 'em, send 'em, give 'em to whomever you choose. You can flag them up on your WOYWW post on the day, every post between now and the day, keep them for private swapping. Whatever suits you.
Enjoy. I don't know why, but based on previous anniversary days, it really does have a different, celebratory feeling to it, so taking part in the PIF or not, you'll get a sense of the online atmosphere! 
Don't feel any obligation to take part. Your value as a Desker will not be interfered with by your decision to PIF or not to PIF! 

I found this:
if you're completely in the dark about ATCs, and can't face the deluge you'll find on Pinterest or need proper details!
