FORUM EVENT: "SECRET SANTA 2006!"
 
!!!NOTICE: IF YOU REGISTERED FOR THIS EVENT BETWEEN 11/17 AND 11/21 YOU MAY NEED TO RE-REGISTER BECAUSE WE HAD A DATABASE CRASH. PLEASE VERIFY THAT YOUR NAME IS ON THE PARTICIPANTS LIST BELOW.

HELLO GUYS HI AND WELCOME TO...

SIGNUP THREAD

This is the commemorative holiday event in which Mockers leave their computers for a few minutes to send ZANY and HILARIOUS gifts to other Mockers at random, who then post the results of the exchange on the internet. What this holiday commemorates exactly is lost to history, but tradition is tradition, and if there's anything BAPE hates, it's change.

So here's how it works: You sign yourself up in this thread. On or around November 27th, you will be PMed with the name of the Mocker whom you will be GIFTING. You should not share this information with anyone else. You will then buy a present with this person in mind. Make this a good present, but don't spend too much on it (between $10 and $30 USD, before shipping). Send them their present WITH YOUR BOARD NAME IN THERE SOMEWHERE by the 4th of December. Shortly thereafter, you will receive a present! Take pictures, scan 'em or whatever, upload them, and share them with us by posting them this thread by December 20th. During this time, you should also buckle yourself up for jubilation.

Also, when you do post the pictures of the gifts you receive, we strongly encourage you to make a story/adventure out of it just like last year. But at the very least, you should post photos of all the gifts you received along with your thoughts on them.

If you want to SIGNS YOURSELF UP, you must do it IN THIS THREAD.
I don't care if you did it in another thread, most of us admins don't deign to read any forums but the hidden ones that are filled with leprechaun gold and erotic Pokémon fan fiction.

By signing, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
• Signing represents a contract. If you fail to uphold your end of the contract, you will be permanently banned from the forums, and possibly tracked down and sodomized.
• You MUST have a working camera (buy a disposable if you don't own a regular digital camera) and some means by which to transfer the images to your computer and upload them for others to see.
• You MUST observe all deadlines and follow all of the instructions.
• If you want to be a gay little hippie fairy and make/build something, that's fine and dandy, but please keep the spending minimum in mind and throw some other goodies in there.

To prevent misuse, any member who has been registered and active with these forums for less than a year MUST:
1. Provide a picture of themselves with a sign that says "I-MOCKERY SECRET SANTA 2006" and their message board name in plain view.
2. Post this picture in this thread.
3. Send a PM to Mockery, who will then provide you with his mailing address for you to send a test/verification letter to. (the sooner you do this, the better)
4. Send a test letter to Mockery at his mailing address.
These steps are necessary to verify that you have a working camera and the motivation to get your ass to a post office.

DEADLINES
• The cutoff date for SIGNUPS is November 26th.
• The cutoff date for SENDING GIFTS is December 4th.
• The cutoff date for POSTING PICTURES ON THE FORUMS OF THE GIFT(S) YOU RECEIVED is December 20th.

WHEN MAILING YOUR PACKAGE
• You should probably observe federal law regarding what can and cannot be mailed.
• You MUST send your gift via Priority mail or your country's equivalent.
• You MUST purchase a tracking number with your transaction. If your package is not received within a week, you will need this information to prove that it wasn't your fault.

What sorts of gifts are and aren't appropriate? Can we do like food and stuff as long as it's nonperishable?

Preechr Nov 15th, 2006 08:53 PM

I'm in, if that's Ok.

I'm feeling all Christmassy and stuff.

Sam Nov 15th, 2006 08:57 PM

Sure, foods are fine, but yeah... make sure it's not something that's going to rot/expire. And if you are sending foods, be sure to wrap them up real good to prevent anything getting ruined.

Emu Nov 15th, 2006 08:58 PM

I was thinking of going down to the Asian food market and picking up some WACKY JAPAKOREANESE CANDY.

What kind? That's for me to know. ;< :jin

Sam Nov 15th, 2006 09:00 PM

IF YOU ARE SENDING FOODSTUFFS PLEASE MAKE SURE IT IS NOT LACED WITH POISON OR ILLICIT SUBSTANCES!

glowbelly Nov 15th, 2006 09:01 PM

i'm in.

Black Flag Nov 15th, 2006 09:02 PM

I'm in.

Also, I think there should be an added stipulation that if you don't send or take pictures then you whine about it like it's everyone else's fault, you get banned forever.

How much is priority mail?

Mockery Nov 16th, 2006 10:59 AM

Ok everybody, the list (at the top of this page) has been updated. If you're name isn't on it, and it should be, make sure you sign up. If you're name is on it, and it shouldn't be, make sure you let us know so that it's removed.

Depends on what you're sending, but for an average size package, I'd say it's anywhere from 4-6 bux usually and usually arrives at its destination in 2-3 days. Obviously, if a person isn't in the country, it would take a bit longer to arrive, but it shouldn't take weeks or anything like that.

Grislygus Nov 16th, 2006 11:33 AM

I'm in.

Chojin Nov 16th, 2006 11:34 AM

MLE is also in for this. I don't know if you added her already as there is no possible way for me to check, but there you go. :gigh
