SECRET SANTA 2016??! + Pre-Christmas Movie Night Stream with Unreleased DCTP Magic!?! (Dec. 23rd @ 3:00 PM EST?)

Postby shinichi'sapprentice » December 4th, 2016, 1:52 pm

Welcome to the 22nd DCTP Secret Santa! Wait what? Sixth?! Right... I forgot I'm currently in the future. ;D

My name is Barry Allen, well, you see my name over there!

So! Like my predecessor, I would start talking about the history of The Great DCTP Lottery that started all of this but instead, I will just copy and paste the post from previous years!

——UPDATE FOR MOVIE NIGHT STREAM! (Updated: 12/7/16)——

In addition to the lovely Secret Santa festivities, we are planning a special Movie Night stream for December 23rd. This will feature a previously-unreleased project from DCTP that was prepared ONLY for this occasion. It will never be released at any other point, so try to be there to enjoy it with everyone while you can!

Pre-Christmas Movie Night Stream with Unreleased DCTP Magic
December 23rd @ 3:00 PM EST
(Click to confirm your individual timezone)

If this time is not adequate, we could push it to as late as 4:00 or 5:00 PM EST (as any later would be quite unfriendly to Europeans) or start anytime from 12:00 PM EST to 3:00 PM EST. Somewhere in that window should be roughly suitable.

...And now back to your regularly scheduled Secret Santa sign-ups. Sign-up!


Everyone that wishes to participate will be entered into the Secret Santa lottery. After the sign-up deadline passes, you will be given a name to prepare a gift for that you will send to this year's manager, shinichi'sapprentice (Yes, that's me!), anytime before Christmas Day. On Christmas Day, all of the gifts will gradually be posted in a different topic yet to be created (without the giver's name, of course). All assignments will be determined randomly, and the gift can be literally anything: a picture you drew yourself, a story you wrote, some image you found, quotes from the person in question or others... anything you'd like! Creativity is your best weapon!


— Everyone who posts in this topic will be considered signed up (unless they specifically post that they would like to opt out for whatever reason).

— The gifts may be images, text, a song, a link(nope, not my other self), or anything else appropriate. The gifts do not need to be elaborate or time-consuming if you do not wish, even just some in-joke would perfectly suffice for most people, I would imagine. (Except PMing pofa a pofa'd message, try to be a bit more creative for her!)

— Because this is meant to be anonymous, we encourage everyone to avoid revealing who they have been assigned and especially not to reveal who they've been assigned to their asignee. It is, of course, up to you, but if possible, attempt to ensure that your gift is not one that is immediately traceable to you by everyone else on the forums. If this is unavoidable, don't worry! This aspect isn't so important! It's more for the suspense than anything.

— Your assignments will be PMed to you by shinichi'sapprentice, and your gifts also need to be sent back to them.

If you sign up, you will receive a gift. Even if one is not sent by the person assigned due to inactivity, a replacement will be ordered and it will be delivered. Similarly, if we end up with late sign-ups that are still confirmed and after all other assignments are already handed out, you will still receive a gift.


A backup team will be created for ensuring that everyone gets a gift. If any signed up member has some difficulty to present a gift, the backup team will take action and will prepare a gift for the receiver assigned to that person. If anyone wants to be part of the backup team, be sure to PM your neighbor apprentice!
Also, if in the process of making or thinking a gift, you stumbled upon an extra one, you can submit it too as a backup gift just in case there are some missing! More help is always welcomed.


December 5th: Sign-ups open

December 10th: Sign-ups end

December 11th: Gift assignments sent

December 24th?!: Gifts due

December 25th!?!??!: Gifts revealed!

(If you miss a deadline, please PM shinichi'sapprentice and see if there's still time to participate! we'll try to get everyone involved if at all possible!)

((When I said I am currently in the future, I meant that I am presently in a place that is not my usual time zone! ;D I will be flying back home from a 16-hour flight on December 24th, just in time for the gifts deadline! If Conia returns anytime in between and wants to take over, I'd gladly pass back the torch to him. Otherwise, he can be one of this year's Secret Santa as well! ;D))

So long as this tradition keeps rolling, I shall find a way to partake. Onward!


While you guys are posting in here, I prepared something in the vein of a Movie Night Experience a while back in anticipation of this. Mr. Kamite has already volunteered his streaming services. This will feature something new that's full of Fun Times and Holiday Cheer, culminating in a presentation of AN ALLLLL-NEW PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN RELEASE from DCTP (!?!?!?) that shall not ever be released for real ever anywhere seriously (*except for this night; then it goes back into the vault forever).

WITH THAT SAID: Does anyone have any suggestions on when this should take place and what time? My initial idea was to hold the stream on December 23rd (Friday) or December 24th (Saturday) as a "Pre-Christmas DCTP Movie Night One Night Only Extravaganza Hype of Unreleased Proportions". If one of those days is suitable, what would be an appropriate time for everyone?

About the movie night... the most suitable day would be Saturday (24/12) for me...
And no matter what day the most suitable time would be 3:00 pm ~ 3:30 pm (US, New York time)...

I don't know if I'm supposed to use a different time zone but this is the only one I know besides mine, so sorry if it's wrong...

I hope the time end up being decided at a suitable time... I really don't want to miss this :D
Thanks for the SS Kamite! ;D

The movie night would be better on Friday, as I might be working in the morning of 25th. Also, in Finland 24th is the day when everything happens and 25th and 26th are more like chilling. Best time-frame is few hours between 8pm - 4am UTC.(so I can sleep atleast five)
