Secret Santa 2018 - And the videos slowly roll in...
« on: October 27, 2018, 08:39:22 PM »
Well, its that time again when we spread some good ol' forum cheer in a tangible form.   As usual, we will split into N. America and Europe (if there are enough people who want to participate in Europe - it's been a few years since we had enough people partake across the pond).  Sign up below and leave a "need by" date if you are leaving town/school for the holidays.  Default date is Dec. 5, that way we avoid the shipping deluge.  If you have a true "need by" date, a return date would also be helpful incase you have to get your gift out late.

Rules:
*  Don't tell anyone who you have.  If you need gift ideas, PM me and I will contact your SS, or you can post suggestions for yourself in this thread once the matchmaking is done.
*  Gifts should be around $30 not including shipping.
*  Plan on shipping your gift at least a week before someone's "Need by" date.  Different people might have different dates, be courteous to your recipient.  This includes being late, try not to be too late.
*  Don't put your name on the package.  Use Kevin Moore, Mike Porntoy, or some other forum joke for your name.  Use your real address for the return address though, just in case something happens and your package needs to get sent back to you.
*  Pictures or video of you opening is required.  Video preferred.
*  There is a minimum "notoriety" requirement.  Due to my lack of activity, I will defer decisions of new people to a counsel of trusted users.  In all but two cases, the person who fails to give a gift is a newbie.  A repeat of five years ago non-participants is unacceptable.

If you want to pay for shipping to the US or Canada, and some people say that they are ok shipping to your country.  I usually pay around $10 US just to ship within the US for this, a little more for Canada.  I just know international shipping is very expensive.

Sorry VMadera00, but I have sent out addresses.

Everyone should have heard from me either on here or on FB.  Still waiting on two people to confirm addresses.

Just a reminder: if you contact me about your SS, tell me who it is.  I rarely use my computer that has the master files in it, and I don’t have everyone’s match memorized.

Feel free to post suggestions and things you like.

My suggestions....pretty much the same as the past years.

I love Penguins. Funny things, board games, puzzles interest me.

Also, don't send a shirt. That I could do without as I have plenty.

I'm up for pretty much anything. Recently have started playing Tetris. Recently got a cat. Bought a home. Still super into dance games like DDR and related music. Favorite bands are still Haken and The Dear Hunter. Favorite color is blue. Trying to learn to cook. If I think of any other random facts about me I'll post them. But really I'm up for anything.
