Now that we're a few days into December, I decided that now would be the best time to start signing up for our Secret Santa event!
If you wish to participate, just sign up in this thread and I'll add you to the list! When the deadline comes, I'll randomly assign each person a different member/character. You then have until Christmas to make your selected person a gift for the day itself! What kind of gifts? Well, anything you want to make! Feel free to create graphics for their character, make a 'card' for the member themselves somehow, make a YouTube vid for their character, write a story for them/of their character, draw a picture... Anything creative you can think of! There will be a wish-list people can use, but those can just be ideas!
Please mention which of your characters (if you have more than one) you would like to have put into the list. If you wish, you can even put more than one of your characters into the Santa list. But be careful - that means you will be assigned more than one person to create a gift for as well! You will get as many people as you assign, so don't overload yourself.
Sound fun? Just sign up below! You have until Friday 13 December, 2013
to sign up! We will need to have time to make the gifts. I will send out the PM's to people once the deadline is up, so get signed up if you want to participate!
Before giving your 'official' gifts on Christmas Day (and after assignments are PM'd), you have the option of sending little messages or other little gifts to your Secret Santa person in advance. This is SEPARATE from your Christmas gift. You can use a thread I will put up for that purpose to send them a simple 'hello,' words of encouragement for the holiday seasons, links of things from the net that you think they might like, or whatever you want! The actual gift you make for them will be given on Christmas, which is required if you sign up, but this is purely optional (but a nice addition). There is a "Secret Santa" account, and if you participate, you'll receive the password so that you can keep your anonymity. It will be included in your assignment email.
For your final Christmas gift, I will create a new thread on Christmas. (You can just post on one of your regular accounts for that.) If you can't 'send' your gift on Christmas, try to do it beforehand. I know many people will be away for the holidays, so if you like, go ahead and send your gift early, either to me so I can put it up in the thread or via PM to your receiver. If you can put it up on Christmas, though, make sure to just 'send' it by replying to that thread - we want to see who everyone gets!
So, to repeat: Sign up by Friday the 13th, get your assignment via PM, send optional messages/gifts anonymously with the "Secret Santa" account in the next new thread between the time you receive your person's name and Christmas Eve, and then give them your official gift on Christmas!
Are you ready then? Just sign up using this!
