Good Idea.

If only there is a way to word the "reward not expected" to let them know they are accepted though.

Does'nt mean they won't still offer. This is a great idea. Helping people find their stuff is one of the best feelings. WOLF

Well, if the only reason an MD'er would help someone search for something they lost would be to receive a reward or payment, that MD'er would definitely be better off joining RingFinders, or Metal Detectives, or another group like that whose purpose is to market & charge for their services.

The main idea of the Lost My Stuff Group is to help people just for the sake of helping!!!

The group is set up such that whenever someone reports a lost item their email is forwarded to all the group members, regardless of their home location. If any of the group members are near the location and available to help, they email or telephone the person to discuss how to best proceed. If they are too far away, they simply ignore the email.

Success! Took about 15 minutes. He lost it in @ 2 to 3 inches of snow. When we got there, their was only a frost layer. Lucky for us. So I asked where he was standing and where he was shooting to. He showed me and their must have been @ 1,000,000,0000,000,000 shell casings. No way the detector was gonna work here plus you all know what a lot of people use as targets? Yeah! Aluminum cans. So I just started to trace his area back and forth. Picked 4 shiny .380 bullets that had not been fired and told the guy if we are finding these shiny bullets your ring should show too. I took another couple of steps and there it was. he was stoked and thanks to the "Lost my stuff" group he was able to contact me and we were able to find it. He will post on the group his story and pics. WOLF
