    Oct 20, 2012, 10:06 AM - *** 2012 Secret Santa Sign-up - SIGN UP IS NOW CLOSED *** #1

    Ho Ho Ho!

    The Holiday season is almost upon us and to celebrate I've gotten the go ahead to host a Secret Santa gift exchange once again. No matter what you celebrate at this time of year you're welcome to join us in the spirit of giving! Anyone who wishes to join must let me know by posting in this thread by NOVEMBER 1ST so that I can get everyone matched so that they can get their gifts out in time.


    Here are the rules:

    1. There are no requirements to join this gift exchange. Any member of the RPF may participate. HOWEVER, by joining you are agreeing to both give and receive a gift. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to send your gift please let me know immediately so that I can arrange a work around. People who do not send gifts have in past been banned. It's not worth it for a $20 gift! PLEASE only join if you are going to participate.

    2. When you sign up you must state whether you wish to ship domestically or internationally (please include what country is "domestic" in your post). In your post you're also free to include your interests and a wish list to help your gift giver with ideas. By all means post "wishful thinking" wants but also put some realistic ideas in there too.

    3. Although there is no limit to the cost of gift you are encouraged to keep your gifts at about the $20 range. Creativity will undoubtedly be appreciated by your recipient! Something handmade with $20 worth of materials can be worth more than spending $100 at a store. You are of course able to send a gift of any value if you like but understand that what you receive will likely be in this range.

    4. I will keep a list of names updated on this thread - please PM me if you are interested and include your address in the PM - When I draw names I will send the Secret Santa his or her recipient's details. The person you send a gift to will not necessarily be the person that sends you a gift. IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE ADDRESSES please use the one that you will be at for the holidays. Better for your parcel to arrive early and be held for you than have it sit on the step for a couple weeks waiting for you to get back from your parent's place.

    5. NEW! Domestic gifts must be in the mail by December 15th. International should be sooner than that. If you don't want me harassing you please post a note saying that you've shipped either in this thread or via PM to me. If you need to push this deadline back a little bit you must contact me. It is still your responsibility to get the gift to your recipient on time.

    6. NEW! A gift will be considered "lost" if it doesn't arrive by the end of the first week of January. If your package had tracking you are not responsible and a new Santa will be provided. If your package did not have tracking you will have to send another gift.

    TRACKING: Tracking is not mandatory but if you DO use tracking you are not responsible should the recipient not receive their gift. If you choose not to get your gift tracked that's fine but if the gift doesn't arrive you're still on the hook for it. Last time I think we only had one or two in which this rule would have applied. This way you can still mail it any way you want but you know where you stand depending on the shipping method.

    7. Although this is a "Secret" Santa you are more than welcome to let your recipient know who you are if you'd like to.


    Finally, not a rule but in the spirit of this exchange please give a "thank you" in this thread to your Secret Santa and let us know what you received. Not only is it the polite thing to do but it lets your Santa and myself know that everything went smoothly.

    Here's hoping for another successful year!

    You already know that I am in. Prefer domestic shipping, but can be persuaded otherwise.

    Interests: Doctor Who, Star Wars, Serenity / Firefly, Professor Rubbertoe's Killer Watches ( figured that gives a idea of designs and such) or suprise me.

    Wishlist:

    Professor Rubbertoe Watch from DC
    Transtemporal Sonic Screwdriver
    Doctor Who stuff in general
    Watch OrangeBlend squee when there are no absent Santas this year.



    And yes Virginia, there is such thing as The Next Doctor.

    Count me in. I prefer North America, but I can do international. Except Cuba. I don't want the ghost of JFK coming after me.

    Just a few of my interests are original Star Trek, Doctor Who (old school is better), Super Marionation, and Space 1999. I'm pretty open to anything, but you might have to tell me what it is and from.

    All added. REMEMBER TO PM ME YOUR ADDRESSES!

    Also, if you need domestic please specify what country you're in. I know Frosty's in the UK but if I hadn't I would have assumed USA and he would be very cross with me.

    This year I have faith that we won't need backup Santas. I think that we all know better...that and O_B as made some friends that used to be in the "aggressive collections" industry. I think he said that their firm was called, Scaroltti, Mangletti, and Kickurbuttovich.

    But if needed sign me up to be a backup Santa.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence but I'm going to run with the assumption that there will always be a couple bad apples so we'll prepare for that.

    Okay, so do you HAVE to make/send a prop? It seems that is all anyone is interested in receiving from the thread posts last year and starting off that way this year as well, kind of treating the Secret Santa like it is the PIF.

    I remember last year someone even posted something to the effect, "don't send me no action figures"..........some people seemed to take it much more seriously than the fun thing it's suppose to be.

    I'd like to participate, but if I were to get someone who states that they only want a prop, especially if it were only SW or Indy or the Avengers or other fairly masculine fare, I'd be disappointing the receiver.
