Secret Santa Hype Thread 2014

Postby Smack Santa » November 13th, 2014, 9:48 pm

As we ramp up to the most exciting two weeks of the year, (I'm talkin' about Secret Santa 2014, of course - sign up here), we wanted to give everyone an opportunity to ask questions and get psyched up for Secret Santa.

This thread is just for discussion, questions, and general excitement. The sign up thread is just for sign ups.

Let's do this.

Just out of curiosity here, if I were to make a physical piece of art (like a painting or a sculpture) and I wanted to mail it to my giftee, would that be something I would have to settle on the side or could Santa handle that on my behalf?

We're talking digital gifts, here. From the Rules:

Create an original piece of art in the form of a single picture/comic (one image file) for your giftee after you receive your assignment on December 10th (you will get a gift in return from your Secret Santa!).

Gifts MUST be emailed as an attachment by December 24th EST
IMAGES/FLASH FILES SHOULD NOT EXCEED 900 PX WIDE.
Images cannot exceed 500KB. You will be asked to fix them and resubmit them before deadline.


For a physical gift exchange, check out sites like Reddit. They do an awesome Secret Santa every year. I suspect soliciting real-life addresses of other users on the site might get into some gray territory rules-wise.

I can't wait to see all the scrooges this year. I hope there are lots. :twisted:
I'm making a list, I'm checking it twice. I'm gonna find out who's naughty or nice.

I see you when you're sleeping. I know when you're awake. I know if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.

Could I donate to the cause and give Santa a donator membership to increase the file size limit? :3

I'm spoiled ever since I got one for myself...

That's incredibly generous! If you're serious about this, I'll PM you in a week or so if it looks like we'll need it. For now, please wait. Thank you!

Sounds good! PM me whenever! The whole "Secret Santa" thing is something I'm woefully flaky with, but I would still like to be a part of it in some way! $20 is simple enough lol. :D

Just being excited about it is pretty great! As it turns out, we will not need to take you up on your generous offer. Thank you so much for suggesting it, though!

Hey Santa! Speaking of donator memberships, do you think there is a way for us secret santas to give donator memberships to our recipient?

I assume you mean an anonymous gift? There used to be a way to buy donator codes and gift them to people (anonymously, though, I'm not sure). I'm not as well versed on the process these days.

That said, if you want to do it, consider contacting Admin directly and seeing if you can arrange something. Bear in mind a donator gift will not take the place of a Secret Santa gift.
