let me know if you have any questions. Also feel free to share likes/dislikes of things to indirectly throw out ideas.
Update#2: Due to reasons we're pushing back the deadline to December 25th (9pm EST/6pm PST/2am GMT) and the reveal will be December 26th (4am EST/1am PST/9am GMT)
I know it's an ungodly time for the east coast but I'm currently on GMT time and 9am seems reasonable :V
2018. Presents. Santa Korn. Ferris Wheels. Sniping. Wait I went too into character.
IT'S 2018 AND THANKSGIVING IS OVER IN THE USA AND WE'RE ALL GETTING SICK OF LEFTOVERS SO NOW IT'S OFFICIALLY TIME FOR OUR 8TH ANNUAL
Ok. *cracks fingers* It's time to copy and paste.
HOW IT WILL WORK!
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, Jeckorn (It’s me, Luigi! ...no wait), 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, 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 assignee. 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 Jecka, and your gifts also need to be sent back to her.
— 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.
SOME ADDITIONAL INFO!
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 Jecka.
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.

**Also please note, as some of you know, I will be flying to Portugal on December 13th, so I will be in GMT Dec 14th through Jan 9th and I'll be visiting family. I will announce ahead of time if the dates will need to be adjusted for the reveals. Thanks for understanding. <3
