    It's about time to Organize Secret Santa Again

    Yes, it feels early, but if we can get the signups done early, and we start the work earlier, we can send it all earlier, and then we won't have all the delayed gifts, like last year.

    LoveandaSandwich, if you'd like to organize it again that'd be awesome, or if it's too much hassle, we can pick someone else. I'd be willing if people agreed However you feel.

    This year, I personally would prefer if all the deadbeats from last year were prevented from reapplying. i.e. anyone who didn't send a gift and/or publically offer an explanation. I'd also prefer to limit entries to people who are active on the board, who we've gotten to know. Not necessarily veterans, but not someone posting for the first time, who could just be a bot.


    SIGNUP DATES:
    Time to sign up - All of October
    Time to make art - All of November
    Due Date to Send Gifts - Dec 1st - Be sure to state your forum name, so we know who to thank!

    If you get your gift before Christmas, you still gotta wait to open it.

    Seems a bit early, but I suppose that's for the best. I'm definitely up for participating again!

    First you sign up. Then you're given the name of someone else on the list. You're given their address. You make them some artwork, possibly Christmas themed, if you wish, and you send it to them, without telling who you're sending it to. Then, they post a pic of your work in the thread and thank you. You never know who will be sending you a gift. Technical skill has nothing to do with it, and all kinds of crafts are welcome. It's all about making something nice for another forum member.

    You can draw or make any kind of hand made gift. Here's the thread to last year's, to give you all a good idea:

    Ouch, I want to be taken off the naughty list. It hurts my heart.

    I sent my gift on time last year and it didn't get to cl0aked until March. cl0aked, this is true, right?

    I probably don't have time to do it this year, but I just want it cleared up that I didn't flake.
