SECRET SANTA

So I'm sure you're all curious about how this will work, and I'll tell you.

For those not familiar with what Secret Santa is, it's where a bunch of people throw their names into a hat and then draw those names to find out who they're giving a gift to secretly.

How this translates to Freebirdia is that everyone signs up, and I tell everyone who they're giving the gift to, the gift is then made and sent back to me, and I then send it to the intended person/post it in the secret santa thread depending on preference of the sendee. This is to let the fun part of this happen, THE GUESSING! You get to guess who sent you your present!

Now the gifts can be anything, a picture, a song, a story, just something creative, just remember to customize it a bit for the intended recipient if possible, for example if you're writing a story or something make it have something to do with either them, or something they like. You don't need to be a super story teller or artist or anything, just knowing you made the present for them and it's meaningful is what matters.
 (Last years present thread can be found here for your perusal. http://freebirdgames.com/forum/index.php?topic=4667.0 And remember if all else fails, make a scavenger hunt.

All you need to do to sign up is post in this thread, THAT'S RIGHT! POST IN THIS THREAD

In that post, post what you would like to receive(maybe just what is a show you are into or something like that) and what kind of gift are you capable of making(be creative, whatever you can do.)

I will be leaving sign-ups open until the end of November probably, but please if you do sign-up be sure to submit your gift on time or your person will be left gift-less when they spent their time making someone else something, and that just isn't fair.

I do understand the holiday season is a busy time for everyone and to make sure everyone has as much time as possible I will be setting the Gift Deadline as midnight Mountain Time December 22nd http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_Time_Zone to allow everyone that last weekend to make all their gifts perfect!

GIFT DEADLINE:
December 23rd

EDIT: If you have any questions about the secret santa feel free to post in the thread, PM me or add me on skype @ jude.death

Old River was as dead as a doornail, this must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am about to relate.

Nice, thanks for organizing this! :)
I won't participate this years either, but it's always fun to see the presents afterwards.

P.S.: Sorry for modifying your post, but I couldn't resist to add a little movement too annoy Dr Watts. :P

Thanks for organizing this, Jude! :) Have fun everyone, and please feel free to participate -- there's no pressure as to what you make, as long as it's something and you try to customize it. c:

If you're not a spambot, write about what gift you want, and make something, or just send something on your own to a person. Do so by sending it to Judedeath first.

Well it's a gift exchange, but of computer stuff we've made, such as a picture made in MS Paint or a song or pretty much anything that can be made on a computer and transmitted through the internet. There is a middle-man between  the two people exchanging gifts, so that the person gifting can remain a secret throughout the process.

I have also seen people giving Steam games as gift, but it is mostly stuff you can make yourself (poems, photographs, stories, etc). :3


EDIT: Since we are all paired up already, let it be a surprise what I can do :3

But here is what I would love to receive: I am not picky, I will appreciate whatever it is. I would be happy with a song, a story, a photograph, a drawing, a game, etc. It could really be anything. :)

Here are some random things that I love: owls, any kind of blue (I really love turquoise), burgundy (the colour), photography, Dr. Who, Firefly, Justified, Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge, Coffee & tea, fashion, different design stuff like typography & stuff, moon (obviously :P ), stories/books, jazz, etc. {I am giving lots of random choices since in the past I have sometimes struggled with giving a gift with just a few suggestions}. n_n

You'd send it to me through either the forum's PM feature, eMail or Skype.

Ok, so I was planning on ending the sign-ups in a week, but we're not getting as good of a turn out as I hoped, so that deadline isn't set in stone, but please if you're thinking of signing up, sign up, make your friends sign up, make your enemies sign up just get people to sign up.
