We're holding I-Mockery's first-ever "Secret Santa" Gift Swap forum event this month and we'd like everybody to participate. Want to sign up and join in the fun?

The rules are really quite simple:

1) You sign up for the event by sending a private message on the board to this account. The private message must include your full name and mailing address. (sign-up deadline is December 9th, 2005). One sign-up per person please. The names of all participants will be posted in this thread.

2) You agree to buy a random, humorous gift that costs no more than $10.00. (we want everybody to be able to participate and not everybody has a lot of cash, so $10 is the most you should spend).

3) We will assign you a person to buy a gift for. Once you have been assigned a person to send a gift to, please mail it out as soon as possible. Do NOT tell anybody what you have bought... the surprise is part of the fun.

4) Another person will be assigned to send you a gift.

5) Once a person receives his/her gift, they are required to post at least one picture of themselves with their gift. And no, do not just post a picture of yourself holding up the gift. Have at least one picture of you using the gift. (example: if they buy you a shirt, post a photo of yourself wearing the shirt.)

6) All gifts must be sent out no later than December 19th 2005 (Monday). The earlier you send out your gifts, the better.

7) Any participant in the Secret Santa gift swap that does not send out a gift after agreeing to do so, will be banned from the forums. Remember, everybody is taking the time to send out a gift, and by not doing your part, that would leave somebody empty-handed. Any participant in the Secret Santa gift swap that does not post photos of the gift they received after agreeing to do so, will be banned from the forums as well.

And that's all there is to it! We hope all of you will join in the fun and participate. God only knows what kind of crazy shit you'll send to each other in the mail. 5-10 bux can go a long way if you put your mind to it.

If you have any questions, please post them in this thread. And YES, this event is open to people outside the United States.

Is it okay if we make the gift? Like, not buy it. If so I have a pretty good idea.

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 4th, 2005 08:30 PM

That would probably be determined on a case-by-case basis. I mean, you're obviously gonna have to buy the supplies to make the gift. So if you want, just PM me with your gift idea and I can let you know.

Rosenstern Dec 4th, 2005 08:39 PM

I'd truly love to participate, but I have these uncircumventable reservations about giving ANYONE my name and adress on the internet. Fucking shit :(

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 4th, 2005 08:41 PM

Well you know what Santa says...

Pussies don't get presents. :(

buck up.

xbxDaniel Dec 4th, 2005 08:41 PM

Well, you could give your address to some random strangers on the internet. Pub's all ready done it a couple of times.

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 4th, 2005 08:46 PM

Only two people will receive your mailing address:

1) Me, the event admin.

2) The person I assign to send you a gift.

xbxDaniel Dec 4th, 2005 08:50 PM

Will there be some gentlemans agreement over the address giving. I'm sort of worried about getting more deliveries that I didn't order.

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 4th, 2005 08:54 PM

See the above post... only 2 people will know your address.

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 5th, 2005 01:06 AM

7 participants already. Excellent. :)

Chojin Dec 5th, 2005 02:06 AM

So, wait, we buy a present before we know who we're sending it to? I'd think that it should be the other way around.

Zomboid Dec 5th, 2005 02:36 AM

I think I'd enter but I really don't know what I'd end up buying that wouldn't be really lame :(

ItalianStereotype Dec 5th, 2005 03:53 AM

I'd participate if I could send in a drawing instead of a picture, as I don't have a camera :o

You don't have to buy the present before you know who you're sending it to, that's totally optional. Everybody will be notified who they need to send their present on December 9th.

If you're low on ideas, try the local dollar store and see how far you can make $5 - $10 go there. Remember, this is just for fun so you shouldn't feel so pressured to come up with the greatest gift ever. Sign up! :o

That's ok. If you don't have a camera, then yes a drawing will suffice. Still, most people tend to know somebody who has a digital camera, so at least make an effort to get a real photo taken if possible.

darkvare Dec 5th, 2005 10:33 AM

i would like to participate and in mexico everything is so cheap but i fear the my gift would get a 13 dollar custom charge(if not more) if i send it to the us >:

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 5th, 2005 11:21 AM

Well shipping & handling isn't something that we're including with the $10.00 gift price. That can cost whatever... it's just up to you whether or not you're willing to pay it.

Orange Juice Bruce Dec 5th, 2005 01:20 PM

I have a few ideas, however, they all involve me nude. I hope this won't disqualify me from participating. :(

Seven Force Dec 5th, 2005 01:49 PM

Funny, I thought Chojin was the event admin...unless he's talking to himself. That'd be weird. :/ [/i]

Rez Dec 5th, 2005 02:12 PM

if i dont sign up, either:
nothing will happen
or
i'll find somethign totally awesome and cheap and kick myself that i wont be able to give it.

if i sign up, either:
i'll putz around looking for ideas, finding none, and being depressed that i sucked at this

or

i'll fuck up in shipping because i ALWAYS do.

or

i could turn a new leaf and be really awesome. i fulfilled my end of the burned CD swap from way back, jixby never sent it anywhere it was his fault...

....

i have 4 days to choose my adventure.

DamnthatDavid Dec 5th, 2005 03:30 PM

If I did it, I would just order something online and have it shipped to the person in question.

Secret Santa Event Admin Dec 5th, 2005 09:43 PM

Nothing wrong with ordering something online... whatever you prefer.

doopa Dec 5th, 2005 09:56 PM

I will do this!

glowbelly Dec 6th, 2005 07:57 AM
