Here's how things work:
Only members with 5 or more positive transactions in the Feedback Forum will be allowed to participate.
If that's you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info (with Secret Santa Info as the subject).
Minimate Multiverse forum name:
Name and address for packages to be shipped to:
Are you willing to be a backup Santa:
Anyone you DON'T want to be assigned to for whatever reason (this will be kept confidential):
Items you're interested in receiving:
Any additional info Santa should know:
You can send me a list of items you'd like or can list the kind of items you're interested in/not interested in (i.e., 'I'd like any kind of Smurf items, except for the line of Smurfette lingerie since I already have it all'). You also should say if you prefer loose items or mint only. Try to leave a little vagueness to your lists so your Santa isn't as limited. Also, remember there is a minimum so don't only list items that are more than that.
Packages should be sent no later than the December 15th.
This will give about 20 days to shop and about 10 days for packages to arrive. The goal is for members to have a gift by Christmas and not too late to be enjoyed this season (remember, it's Secret Santa, not Enigmatic Easter Bunny). However, the sooner you can send the better so that your recipient isn't worrying if they've been shafted.
Once you've got your package, please post in this thread with your guess of who sent it.
If you can't send anything, e-mail me as soon as possible.
By signing up, you are expected to send something. If you feel you can't do this, please don't sign up. However, if something happens after you've signed up, please contact me as soon as you know that you won't be able to send a gift. We all understand that circumstances arise that change things, but just remember that communication is a powerful tool. By choosing to organize this, I am guaranteeing that every participant will receive something (even if it means I'm sending it) so please try to be respectful of everyone else. For anyone that chooses to not send something and doesn't work it out beforehand, you'll be banned from next year's Secret Santa, you'll receive appropriate feedback in the Feedback Forum and I'll personally send you a lump of coal next year as a reminder of how bad you were (and remember, you're giving me your address).
