Re: TrekBBS Secret Santa 2013

If this works how the Secret Santa works on my other forum, basically you will be given a random person to buy a gift for out of the pool of people who are participating. The mod will either give you their address or if the person didn't give their address, then something like their amazon (gifting over the internet).

What we would do on my other forum is not announce who each others Santas were until you got your gift. Then we would take pictures of the gifts if we wanted and thanked that person in the gift-posting thread.

As far as I am aware, we never had a problem with address security on the forum I belonged to (however, we did it over PMs since at the time Google docs were not popular). The only issue that ever arose was that some gifts that were shipped internationally would be held up in customs. Other than that, it was always a wonderful time and it definitely made my holidays brighter! Sending gifts and getting gifts in the mail is super fun!

It's always a nice feeling too when the person you are buying for posts the gifts you got them and likes them. Everyone gets all warm and fuzzy^^

This idea is awesome. I love it! I was expecting it to be avatars or pictures or somesuch but the idea that we're swapping real presents is red hot. Count me in.

I think a mod should sticky this! Especially since it will be going on for a while.

That's a good idea, although I could just as easily bump this every week or so, too.

I was so confused because I couldn't find it looking at the topic list. Thanks for sticking this!

By the way, everyone, today is the deadline! Tomorrow morning, signups are closed and I will start handing out assignments.

Everyone's assignments have been handed out. Please let me know when you've shipped your gifts! (Just don't post here who you bought for!)
