Oi, wot's this?
This is the 8th annual Secret Santa on Smack Jeeves. Very exciting stuff. But what exactly is a secret santa?

A Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift. The Secret Santa tradition also encourages gift exchange groups whose members are not close enough to participate in the alternative tradition of giving presents to everyone else.

For Smack Jeeves community members, Secret Santa is a tradition of doing something nice for our fellow comic artists, usually by making a Christmas or fan-comic as a present. The Secret Santa gift exchange was started by Trebor in 2006, and the tradition has continued ever since. By signing up for secret santa, you will be assigned a giftee to create a piece of art for. In exchange, you will be gifted a piece of artwork by a mystery santa. Recipients and giftees are matched up randomly. You will be given the name and profile of your recipient by December 10th. You will have two weeks to create your gift. If you do not create a gift by the deadline, or your gift otherwise doesn't follow the rules below, you will be deemed a Scrooge, and you will be publicly shamed by the Krampus.

For more details, please read the Rules and the FAQ. There are no exceptions, no if, ands or buts. Please understand and agree to the rules before signing up.

December 25 - I want to take a moment and thank every single participant in this year's event. You've all done amazing work, and we have a record low number of scrooges this year - only three!. Congratulations to all of the participants who made it on time - I know we had a few close calls ;) Have a wonderful holiday, jeevsies! You've earned it!

December 20 - There are only FOUR DAYS LEFT to deadline! The Krampus is giggling with mad glee, and counting all the names on the list who haven't submitted their gifts yet. It's unsettling.

December 11 - We have something very special and exciting planned for our scrooges this year. The Krampus is eagerly looking forward to all the fun we have in store for those who do not meet the deadline.

December 7 - If you are having difficulty finding information about your giftee, try doing an advanced search for them on the forums. Sometimes the forum profile can yield more results. That said, please help your santa out and update your site profile with some information that will help them make you a nice gift. I can't call someone a scrooge for making a generic gift if they have nothing to go on.

December 6 - Some of the assignments seem to have gotten lost in the messaging system. We have resent some PMs to ensure everyone gets them. If you have not received yours, PLEASE let us know! We've also posted all of this year's participants on the site.

November 17 - Just a reminder, the rules have changed this year, so please read them and make sure you understand them. NSFW comics will NOT be accepted.

November 15 - We've been generously gifted a donator membership and will be accepting larger files and FLASH files! Updated requirements here.

November 14 - As an early present, we're giving all of you secret santas a few extra days for gift makin'. We'll be announcing giftees on December 6th instead of the 10th. Hooray! Everyone dance!

This thread is ONLY for sign ups, not for discussion or questions (but you can get hyped and ask questions here)

If you would like to sign up to give and receive a gift for Secret Santa 2014, reply to this thread saying as much.
