    The Official Secret Santa Thread 2012

    Hello Secret Santas!

    It’s that time of year again! The annual Secret Santa Season kicks off today, October 20th 2012.

    Eligible Santa’s have until November 3rd to sign up. So, in order to sign up, you must be a registered member who then sends me a PM with your real name and mailing address (which she will keep private and only share with your Secret Santa).

    IMPORTANT: If you have signed up, but change your mind about participating, you have until November 3rd to PM me to remove your name from the list without being marked as a Bad Santa.
    No new names will be accepted after November 3rd.

    In order to sign up:
    1.) You must have been a member of for at least 1 year (your signup date must be on or before October 20th, 2011).
    2.) If you have not participated in the Secret Santa in the past, you will need to have another member PM me to vouch for your reputation. This needs to be someone with who you have done a successful trade or sale.

    After you send me your PM, you may also post a wish list in this thread as a purchasing suggestion for your Secret Santa. Do not be offended if your Secret Santa gift is not from your wish list as there's no guarantee you'll receive what you asked for. Also, please ask for generalities. For instance, you like Star Wars or LEGO, do not list specific items as this puts pressure on the Santa to find and deliver them. Instead, just say Star Wars or LEGO. If you are looking for specific items to fill out your collection, that’s what the Marketplace forum is for.

    On November 6th, another board member’s name will be randomly selected and sent to you in a PM, along with their shipping address. Be sure to keep that info a secret and not tell the user you are buying them a gift! Otherwise, it won't be Secret Santa! Sorry no special requests to purchase for specific users will be granted. Also, by signing up you agree that you may have to ship your gift internationally.

    Gifts sent within the United Statues will have until December 9th to buy and send your package to your recipient! International gifts will need to be sent by November 25th to ensure a Christmas delivery. As an example, if you live in the USA and need to ship your gift to Germany, you will need to send your gift by November 25th to ensure a Christmas delivery in Germany.

    Fans shipping within the United States MUST use delivery confirmation, and they will need to send me a PM with that delivery confirmation number as proof of shipment by December 9th. International gifts must send a scan or photograph of their customs form to by November 25th as proof of shipment. If postage confirmation is late or there is a failure to provide an active tracking number or scan of the customs form, it will result in you being listed on the Bad Santa list. Bad Santas are added to our Naughty List and will not be allowed to participate in any future Secret Santa gift exchanges!

    Even if you get marked as a Bad Santa, you still need to get your gift out for this year's Secret Santa. The absolute final deadline is December 27th, 2012 for Bad Santas. If a Bad Santa missed that date as well, they will be banned from the forums permanently! This is a new rule to ensure that everyone sends a gift. It’s not worth losing your membership over a free gift.

    Please package ALL gifts securely to ensure they arrive intact and undamaged. Do not wrap the shipping box in gift paper! You can wrap the gift inside the box if you want, just NOT the actual box with which you use to ship the gift!

    If your gift arrives late or not at all, but you followed all the correct steps, we'll address that when the time comes. Everyone should note gifts may be possibly lost by the postal system. This is a risk that everyone must face. A replacement gift will not be sent if a gift was lost in the mail.

    The below list includes all of the Santa’s signed up for the 2012 Secret Santa gift exchange.

    Detective Lubic
    King Kahn
    Major Prime
    Mighty Puundragon
    Mye-Kah B
    Pixel Dan
    Princess Adora NJ

    *Santa names will appear in Black until shipping confirmation is received. Names will appear in Red once confirmation of shipping is received but their gift has yet to be received by the recipient. And finally, once the gift is received by the recipient the sender's name will appear in Green. When your gift arrives please post in this thread to inform your Santa the gift was received. But please don’t open the box with your gift until Christmas to keep with the spirit of Secret Santa!

    Gifts should be between $10 and $20 USD before shipping. If you are only participating to receive a gift equal in value to what you sent, do not participate. This is about giving, not receiving. If we determine that you spent less than $10 USD before shipping, you will be placed on the Bad Santa list and not eligible to participate in the future Secret Santas. If you spend more than $20 USD before shipping, please do not be upset if your Santa stayed within the $10-20 limit

    Please do not sign up if you are unsure if you can participate. While we understand that the unforeseen does sometimes occur, you should be able to gauge at the present moment if you can complete your end of the exchange. Don’t plan on buying Secret Santa gifts with money you don’t have!

    Any further questions or concerns may be addressed in the Secret Santa thread.

    Trust me, trust me, be a'right,
    Drink a little poison 'for you die,
    Sign' blood or fool night,
    Drink a little poison 'for you die.

    What if the last time I did take part in this was so long ago that our best friend, 'Search feature' can't find them? Do you still require me to get someone to vouch for me? (I'd call on the power of Val but he's said he can't remember it!)

    Wow, what a Massive Catch-22. New people can't participate unless a person they Santa'd already vouches for them.

    In Kansas, it is a crime to eat rattlesnake meat in public.
    You are upsetting the blessing of the Snake God. ALL HAIL RATTLOR!!

    Nope, they need to conduct a successful trade or sell on the board. Meaning they are trust worthy. The person that vouches for them only has to be a member on the board and does not necessarily need to have participate in past Secret Santas.

    I think it would be fun to get a box of Blind bags or any kind of toys that are a mystery before you open them. Like The Trash Pack( Wave 3 the ones with the blue cans) or anything like that you find interesting or a mix of stuff. I like cool printed T-shirts (Size M). Vintage toys from the 80's especialy from small toy lines that were not that popular, the stranger the better. If I am lucky enough to have a International Santa. Any cool toy line from your country that we dont have here in the USA we be Very Cool...
