N4A Secret Santa 2018 (Sign-Ups Closed)

It's that time of the year again.

 

Hello and welcome to Ninfora's third annual Secret Santa event for 2018! I am your host, Santa Chrom, here again to make everyone's holiday season a great one.

 

Whether you are a returning or new participant to this yearly community event, getting involved is as simple as ever!

What is Secret Santa?

 

In Secret Santa, members fill out a form to tell Santa Chrom a little about themselves (such as where they live, what they like, and more), and are later randomly assigned another participating member as their Tiny Tim, whom they must deliver a gift to by the holiday season, receiving the information that Tiny Tim shared with Santa Chrom. At that point, it becomes the Secret Santa's responsibility to pick out a gift for their Tiny Tim based on the given information. At the same time, the Secret Santa's own information is shared with yet another participating member, so they too will be a Tiny Tim to another Secret Santa.

 

In short, in Secret Santa, you will give to one person, and you will receive from another person. It's called Secret Santa because you should remain anonymous until the day your Tiny Tim receives your gift!

Rules

  • All gifts should be valued at least roughly $10 USD (before tax/shipping). Pay what you want, but don't be cheap.
    • Personally crafted gifts are waived from this rule.
  • Delivering directly via Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and other storefronts is acceptable.
    • Any way to wrap your gift and include a personal message should be taken if possible. Same goes with tracking, share that with Santa Chrom via PM.
  • Digital items (games, movies, etc.) are acceptable to be gifted.
    • You may specify on your form that you would prefer not to receive these kinds of items.
  • This exchange is open to all members regardless of residence.
    • Santa Chrom reserves the right to decline a registration if he believes an applicant may not be suitable to participate.
  • Only sign up if you are serious and committed to participating. It makes organizing this a lot easier for Santa Chrom.
    • If at any point you believe you will no longer be able to participate, please send a PM to Santa Chrom at the earliest opportunity.
  • Received gifts must be shared in this topic with some kind of visual proof.
    • Tiny Tims may choose to open/share their gifts received early if they want to.
  • If a Tiny Tim has not received their gift by a certain date, Santa Chrom will personally deliver a gift to them as compensation.

Oh my fucking god, putting up Christmas decorations up in October?! Seriously?! This just goes to show that society values commercialism above all else, and is doomed to collapse under its own weight. I thought you were better than this, Chrom.

 

Looking forward to seeing who I get paired up with this year.

The form to sign up for Secret Santa is now live! Just check the bottom of the first post to find it.

 

I've not made any changes to the process from last year since I figured it works perfectly well enough, so it should be easy to fill out for anyone.

 

You have three weeks to get on board!

Got a bit of heads up, been dealing with a person who works at my local post office who tends to mis deliver mail and packages. So it couldn't hurt to make sure that everyone gets their tracking numbers just to make sure that everything gets there safely. I'd feel terrible if the gift got delivered to the wrong person or anyone else's did.

Tracking numbers are always good to have. I'm not requiring them but I'll always appreciate them being shared with me so I can also observe packages myself.

I've still never participated, and I really should. I have this irrational feeling that I'd screw the whole thing up somehow. Oh well, I have three weeks to decide.

There are always digital gifts, hard to go wrong there.

 

I'll sign up as soon as I have a couple of ideas for my wishlist; always good to give some options.

Think it's about time Uni did a little something with this community again~

Thanks to everyone so far for joining! There's still plenty of time left to sign up, I just wanted to say I appreciate the interest.

 

I'm really excited to get the ball rolling and see how everything else goes.

Just a reminder that there's only a week left to sign up! The form will be closed after this coming weekend, and everyone should be informed of their Tiny Tim the following Monday.

 

Until then, you're free to edit your responses via the message you should've gotten via email if you elected to receive it. Let me know if there are any technical difficulties or troubles.
