I can't imagine anyone having a problem with you taking charge of this thing.
As for an opinion on who can participate, if they're not on the current naughty list, let them in. Give them a chance to prove themselves.
There will almost certainly be some drop-outs, but I personally don't have a problem with giving and not receiving a gift.
It would suck, of course, but I ain't slitting my wrists over it. They can just go on the naughty list for next year.
I didn't sign up last time, but I'd like to do it this year.
Nope, if I do it, it'll be completely random - I'll have my wife draw from a hat. I mean, last year, everyone wrote a brief description to the organizer of what they'd like to get. Then Loveandasandwich sent these messages to everyone, so you had some idea of what your recipient wanted, and you could make art based on that. I'll do that too, but you could still get artwork from anyone on the list.
This was twelve levels of awesome. I'll be in again, for sure. @:-D

Sweet! I got signed up Thankss~
Rated this 5 stars.
I want to take part this year again, Sonaj recieved my gift last year, so I can be taken of the list, I think page 12. I thought it was supposed to be anonymous, so I never posted my name.
And, I received mine from Cacodaemonia, on page 11, so you can take her off the list as well :/
^finally it is revealed, haha. I can confirm that i recieved the gift.
And i would like to participate again this year.
I was thinking about the new members joining in. After the draw is done, it should be fairly easy one month down the line after the cut off to see if they're still active. For those who aren't, you could mix the senders up a bit with the recipients who should have received from the non active members.
sign me up?
Haven't been super active around CA lately. But Secret Santa's reason enough to come out of hiding. Been around for awhile. Participated last year. Sent off art to Cherry_Cheesecake. Received art too. So if anyone on the naughty list sent something to me, I did receive it. I'm just horrid at scanning and never got around to posting. Want to do this again. TASmith - sent you a few PMs to get myself removed from the naughty list.
Heyyyy therree I am alive haha. Haven't been on CA much at all lately except for random sketchbook updates.
I already said this in the PM I just sent you but I'll say it again haha, you can definitely take over TASmith. It was fun doing it but it was also a lot of work & I just don't have the timeee to do it this year.
To make it easier on you here's some things you should probably do:
- Make a limit of people you think you can handle. I think we had almost 80 people doing it last year and it just got ridiculous. Just sending the messages out to people took hours and hours. Maybe limit it to 50 or so?
- Don't let really new people join the Secret Santa. Not trying to be elitist or anything but almost all the people who were new to the site are on the naughty list haha. Some people had just joined Conceptart to be part of the Secret Santa I think, & I dumbly let them in booo
Oh yeah & I totally want to be a participant of this! I also offer to send an extra present or two to anyone who winds up not receiving anything from their Secret Santas, to avoid sadness.
& If you need any help with it, I'll totally help, I just don't want to head it this time haha
