    Some of you might remember last year's Valentine's Day Extravaganza. I was on the fence about doing it again, and I'm going to have to pare it down a bit, but people seemed to enjoy it last year so I'm going to try it again. Keep this thread positive; haters need to go elsewhere. This isn't just about people who are in relationships or in love, it's also an opportunity to express admiration or respect or friendship. :)

    PM me by the midnight on the 12th (California time) and on the 14th, I'll send your choice of "flowers" with or without a note to the person of your choosing.

    Please provide the following:
    a. Their username.
    b. What color of (digital) flowers to send them. Choose from: red (love), white (admiration), yellow (friendship), pink (crush)
    c. A message from you.
    d. Whether or not to include your username in the message (or be anonymous.)

    Feel free to send multiple flowers but please try not to go overboard since I'll be doing this by myself! We kept the limit at five last year and that sounds about right. If you're on the fence about participating, I'd really like to encourage you to reach out to someone. Say thanks to an old friend, or make a new one. Or flirt with that poster that you've been crushing on! :adore:

    This is the type of list where you actually want to be naughty instead of nice ;)

    2/3 of the people I sent flowers to last year have been banned or deleted their accounts, seemingly shortly after receiving my flowers. Therefore I have concluded that my flowers are the flowers of death and will not be sending any this year.

    Now I'm curious about the recipients! I kind of want to go back and see if I have the list from last year ...

    :lol: Don't worry, I'd never reveal anything. I actually feel really honored when people trust me with anything.

    Something like this, for those who are say, an admired friend or a crush friend?

    Cool idea. I don't really remember it from last year so I'll have to take a glance back.

    We actually did flowers like that last year as a custom request from someone. If you have a custom request, PM me with it and I'll let you know if it's possible. I don't want everyone coming up with custom requests just because it will get a lot more difficult, but I'm happy to consider them on a case by case basis!

    Those flowers look like cake icing or decorations. Nice.

    Also in my experience people post in this thread because they like the idea or hope for flowers, but don't always send something themselves. And then they might be disappointed later. If you're here and you like the idea, just go for it!
