READ THE RULES ONCE MORE IF YOU FORGOT!
The time to declare your participation in this event is now over.
Private messages have been sent out and everyone should have received their Santee’s information at this time.
Here’s how it will work:
Anyone interested in being a Secret Santa (and thus also a Santee) posts in this thread with an “I’m in” or something to the same effect.
You can provide for potential Santas to gift things to you either by providing me with your mailing information where you can receive a gift, or by providing me with a URL to an Amazon or Funagain or other such wishlist. This can be done by PM, so only myself (as coordinator) and your Santa will have this information. The wishlist option exists so that the exchange of personal information will NOT be necessary to participate in the exchange.
2a) Wishlists can be either private (only your Santa will see the URL), or public (people here might wish to give gifts to more than one person), at the Santee’s discretion.
We’ll keep track of who is in using a relatively long alpha post, just to keep things neat and orderly. You have until October 15th to declare your participation. You then have until the end of the month to send me your contact and shipping information.
After the cut-off, I will PM each person with the information needed to gift something to their Santee. Each participant will be responsible for their gift to another. No freeloaders! If you don’t give a gift, we’ll know.
4a) There is a $20 minimum gift value; no maximum.
You can now subtly or not-so-subtly talk about things you’d like to get, although that in no way means you’ll get what you ask for.
When you receive your gift, you make a post in this thread mentioning who your Santa was, what you got, and some thanks to that person for your gift (it’s only polite). Pictures are encouraged.
