Strangely, it seems we've never done one of these, or at least not within the last few years. So, I'm doing one. Join me or die. Can you do any less? What's a Secret Satan? That's Secret Santa. And it works like this: a bunch of people (hopefully) sign up. Then, after a designated deadline, the person organizing it (that would be me) randomly assigns who each person buys for. You won't be buying for the person who is buying for you. It will be someone unknown. Everyone will receive a gift, and you won't know who bought for you until you receive it. Mysterious! Sounds cool. How do I get in on this? I'm glad you asked! Just go fill out this form. You need to do this by November 20th. When you sign up, please use your normal TrekBBS username, not your Halloween one. I want all signups done before (US) Thanksgiving, so I'll have time to sort out the responses and assign people. You can go back and edit your info if necessary, just please make sure it's finalized by the 20th. I intend to hand out everyone's Secret Santas on December 1st. I will send them via PM, or over email if PM isn't working. What are the rules? Yes, there are always rules! 1. The minimum spending limit is $10. You can spend more--as much as you want. I envy whoever gets a $500 gift! 2. Once assigned, you need to make sure you get a gift for the member you've drawn, and that they receive it by January 1st, 2014. Failure to do this will ensure you aren't allowed to participate in this in the future (at least so long as I am running it.) Don't sign up less you are willing to do it! (I will cut some slack for long-distance international shipping, just make sure you send your gift promptly.) 3. Contact me once you've sent your gift so I can mark it off. 4. Contact me once you receive your gift, so I can mark that off, too! 5. This is not a rule, but a nice suggestion: once you get your gift, take pictures and post them here! Share the love! See, that's not so many rules. What if I don't want "certain people" to have my info? I have two ways for you to deal with that: 1. Don't enter a shipping address, just provide links to wish lists on Amazon, Steam, or whatever you use for wishlisting type activities. I guess it might be hard to take pictures of a Steam game. Use screenshots? 2. There is a field for special instructions where you can designate people whose names you don't want to draw (and whom you don't want to draw yours.) You can also use this if, for instance, your significant other posts here, and you don't want to draw their name. Use either or both, it's up to you. As for me, once this is all done, I'm going to destroy the form and all responses. I have no interest in holding onto your shipping addresses and I am too busy to stalk anyone. THE LINK AGAIN, IN CASE YOU MISSED IT By all means, sign up via the form and post here that you joined up. Have fun, everyone! Remember the deadline: November 20th!
