One thing you'll probably also want to consider is limiting the amount of overseas shipping. Reduces both shipping costs for the sender, and the chances that the gift could be lost in the mail.
I thought I'd let you know that I actually won't be able to join. Figuring it's still october, I hope my message doesn't reach you too late.
Update, so far it's Oct 29th and I've got 17 unread messages in my inbox. That's about 20 addresses so far. 47 people have signed up. So, if you haven't sent me your address yet, please PM me, and add a little bit on what you'd like to receive. Please hurry, because I don't want to have to delay this.
You might want to PM the people who haven't replied, since they may not be checking back on this topic. Also, it would be nice for those of us who got back to you on time to be given assignments while we wait for everyone else to get back, unless that would make things more difficult for you.
I'm about to do the drawing. So far the following participants haven't sent me an address. You're all still in, I'll just send the info later - as soon as you send it to me.
EDIT: AND ALL YOU ENGLISHMEN WHO SENT ME AN ADDRESS, WE NEED A NAME TOO! MOST COUNTRIES WON'T DELIVER A PACKAGE WITH NO NAME WRITTEN.

I pmed mine a bit earlier today.
Whooops! Haven't checked this thread in awhile! Just replied to your PM, TAS!
RyerOrdStar: There's a limit to how frequently PMs can be sent, and there's a whole bunch for TASmith to send out. That combined with late comers and other organizational stuff I'm sure it'll be a few days before everyone gets their assignments.
Serpain: I think the deadline for mailing the gift you make is Dec. 1st. Of course there's no way for anyone to enforce that, but I'm getting the idea that last year a lot of stuff arrived late.
