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.
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.
The Nice List: (people currently signing up for this year's Secret Santa)
The Naughty List: (People considered Missing In Action from last year, and not allowed to participate. If you want to get off this list, you need some evidence you made a gift and sent it - pics, receipts, someone to vouch for you, etc.)
*NOTE* If your name's Alicia, Justin, Frank, or Kaisa, and you're still on this list, message me.
*NOTE* Richard Doble, what was your screen name last year?
*NOTE* at least two gifts were sent anonymously, if yours was posted, message me

What do you do?
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.
So all skill levels are welcome? If that´s the case then sign me up! Or am I not as active on the forums as I should be?
Is the idea that you do a drawing for a random member on the forum? If so, I'd like to participate
Sounds cool. Sign me up please.
I´m not going to be able to do it, sorry! I´ve got to much stuff to do during these months.
My former screen name: PatriciaS
Count me in. I participated last year, but didn't rec'v anything from my Santa and that made me very sad
i wasnt in last year but it sounds like a wicked idea and id love to take part (:
Sign me up please! Sounds like a lot of fun.

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.
