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.

HickMan Nov 15th, 2006 09:23 PM

I'M IN! AGAIN!

This was the coolest thing last year. Except for the fact that nobody posted pictures. Glad to see you put the foot down. I so totally hope I get Brad Pitt or Chojin

Jixby Phillips Nov 15th, 2006 09:51 PM

I would like to do this, i will do it

Santa may be sweet to you this year! HE MIGHT LET ME GIVE YOU A PRESENT! :o

Sethomas Nov 16th, 2006 01:33 AM

thebiggameover Nov 16th, 2006 02:27 AM

i am NOT in, but will i still be able to read and see the totaly radness that will happen?

Supafly345 Nov 16th, 2006 04:43 AM

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

Ok nevermind I decided to stop watching TV, playing guitar, and learning about secret santa all at the same time to focus my powers on reading. I get it now. What happens if there is an odd number of santas?

It doesn't matter as long as someone gets someone different from the person they received, or themselves.

Oh, and I'm in, just let me get my film developed.

Mockery Nov 16th, 2006 06:35 PM

We'll deal with that if and when it happens. I'm sure if it does happen, we'll be able to get one last person to sign up.

Misdemonar Nov 16th, 2006 07:43 PM

If she wants to be in this, please tell her she needs to post here in the forum and say so.

In regards to who you give your address to, chojin and I will collect those via PM a little later on in the month.

Protoclown Nov 17th, 2006 12:25 AM

I'm in, mothafucka

liquidstatik Nov 17th, 2006 02:30 AM

im in guys

:]]

sadie Nov 17th, 2006 09:19 AM

i won't be participating because my husband thinks it's a stupid waste of money on someone that i probably don't know and don't like. and i can't come up with any arguments to the contrary.

liquidstatik Nov 17th, 2006 01:00 PM

"but it'll be fun! ;o"

Mockery Nov 17th, 2006 02:26 PM

She left out the part about how her husband said he'd beat her if she participated. It's ok Sadie. We're here if... you know... you want to talk about it.

MarioRPG Nov 17th, 2006 03:08 PM

Alright, my verification letter should get there around Wednesday, and my film is back from being developed next sunday because I went to the cheapest place ever.

Chojin Nov 17th, 2006 04:30 PM

sadie, are you on section 8 or something

cause if so, i understand that $10 is like, rent, and all

glowbelly Nov 17th, 2006 05:21 PM

she has 3 kids and is a teacher >: $10 is a lot of money when you have 2 kids in diapers and an infant on formula >:

RESPECT!

Mockery Nov 17th, 2006 06:18 PM

WATCH OUT! IT'S THE MOMMY DEFENSE SQUAD! :mds

glowbelly Nov 17th, 2006 06:28 PM

YOU GODDAMN RIGHT :mds

sadie Nov 17th, 2006 06:43 PM

:mds :lol

if i were on section 8, then i wouldn't have to pay freaking rent. and i'd probably be able to get free diapers and formula, too. maybe i should get myself fired and go back on the system; then, i could play in your silly reindeer games.

Dr. Boogie Nov 17th, 2006 07:12 PM

Count me in. My kids will just have to fend for themselves.

Schimid Nov 17th, 2006 08:04 PM

I WANT TO PLAY :O

Mockery Nov 21st, 2006 01:34 PM

To all Secret Santa participants:

If you have registered (and been approved) for the Secret Santa event, please send an email to santa@i-mockery.com with the following information:

-Your Real Name
-Your Mailing Address
-Your Name/Alias here on the I-Mockery message boards.

ALSO

To anybody who signed up to participate in the event between November 17th and November 20th, you may need to re-register because we had a database crash. So please check the participants list on the first page of this message thread to see if your name is on it. If it's not, be sure to make a post saying you want to participate!

Spengler Nov 21st, 2006 09:00 PM

Hey folks, long time lurker, fist time poster. This sounded fun, so I would like to participate.


nothing4buddha Nov 21st, 2006 10:24 PM

i think there should be a rule that the new people get stuff for new people and the people that have been around for a while should get stuff for each other but anyways that's just my opinion :(

Sethomas Nov 21st, 2006 10:28 PM

I WOULD LIKE TO SECOND THAT MOTION.

Spengler Nov 22nd, 2006 01:04 AM

Sounds fair.

Zomboid Nov 22nd, 2006 02:35 AM

Yeah, that's one of the reasons I haven't joined. There was something pretty cool I found that I wanted to send too. Especially if I got burbank or proto :O

Mockery Nov 22nd, 2006 03:35 AM

Sure, I'm open to that idea. But, of course, if we have an odd number of new people participating, we'll have to pair them up with someone else who's not new, regardless. I'll just pair them up with the next "newest" person down the list. Sound good everybody?

And Zomboid, if you do join this year and fuck up again, we're sending an AIDS infection squad straight for your testicles.

zeldasbiggestfan Nov 22nd, 2006 08:28 AM

Its happened to me. It isnt fun. Be cautious my friend. :/

nothing4buddha Nov 22nd, 2006 10:26 AM

sounds ok to me :D

glowbelly Nov 22nd, 2006 01:23 PM

i don't like it! i remember last year that some relatively new people were involved and they were surprising with their gifts and posting and such.

you get to know people better :(

MarioRPG Nov 22nd, 2006 02:58 PM

Yeah, the idea's a little prejudice, no?
Not that my opinion matters

Mockery Nov 22nd, 2006 03:59 PM

I'm cool with either honestly. Let's just finish with the signups first and then we'll see how the gifts go.

In the meantime...

IF YOU'VE SIGNED UP

Please EMAIL the following info to santa@i-mockery.com if you haven't already:

-Your Full Name
-Your Mailing Address
-Your Name/Alias here on the I-Mockery forums.


And again, if your name isn't on the participants list yet, make sure you sign-up soon. Deadline for sign-ups is Sunday, November 26th!

Bah. I have a pretty good picture phone and my sister has a digital camera that I could steal. I just get really busy around this time of year and it was hard to find time to do that. I just don't know if I wanna spend 30 bucks on this. Last year it ended up being relatively cheap cause I just sent it through regular mail and I think it still got to buddha within a week and a half or so.

I'll decide by the deadline. It was fun so I'll probably do it again. It was a real bitch explaining why I had gay and tranny porn sitting on my coffee table though.

zeldasbiggestfan Nov 22nd, 2006 06:33 PM

:lol

snoogans Nov 22nd, 2006 06:36 PM

not sure if you realise this Zomboid, but porn doesn't have to be kept out in the open. It doesn't implode if you hide it somewhere.

Zomboid Nov 22nd, 2006 09:29 PM

Yeah, but I figured it'd look even worse if I had it in a drawer or something. I have annoying friends who will look through my shit when I'm busy and they're sitting here bored. It'd look kind of incriminating if they were to be looking for a bottle opener and stumbled upon that.

Plus, it was funny to have it out there. Hard to explain, but funny.

Mystie Nov 23rd, 2006 01:21 AM

I'm in! I always send good presents. :)

Comrade Rocket Nov 23rd, 2006 01:35 AM

yeah, buddha talked me into it

send me something cool plz :(

Jixby Phillips Nov 23rd, 2006 03:43 AM

where is the thread of the first one ???

Mockery Nov 23rd, 2006 03:45 AM

The first Secret Santa event? Right here:

draw a sidewalk Nov 23rd, 2006 04:08 AM

i hope it's not too late to sign up, i want to be paired with a girl if possible. one that dosn't suck :)

ps - noob3 sez: if jen is too late that is bullshit ps she is sending my email with my adress and if she isn't in it then count me out that isn't the way of the holy christmas ghost peace yall

Jixby Phillips Nov 23rd, 2006 01:58 PM

haha, whoops It was right here in this forum that only has 10 other topics in it.

Thanks!

darklycan Nov 23rd, 2006 05:12 PM

Hey everyone, just reapplying because of the server crash

RoG I have sent my verification letter on Tuesday the 21st through express posting. They are expecting it to come in 3-6 working days :/.

Also do you need me to post my picture again?

Microshock Nov 23rd, 2006 05:25 PM

Santa event
 
I was following the secret santa event last year and it owned!

So this year im joining!

im rejoining because of the database crash...soooo yea ive been on close to a year!

Emu Nov 23rd, 2006 06:25 PM

But it hasn't been a year, b*tch

sign up proper, aight!

Mystie Nov 23rd, 2006 11:55 PM

Since there was some issues last year with people sending packages, it's probably worth noting that this can be accomplished without even going to the post office.

You can stuff anything you want in a Priority Mail Flat Rate box, go to USPS.com, print a shipping label with delivery confirmation and insurance, tape it all up and hand it over to your post man. It'll cost about $9 to do, and you won't have to wait in line behind all the assholes taking 20 minutes to decide if they want stamps with snowmen or angels.

snoogans Nov 24th, 2006 12:35 AM

arrgh! I think the database crash booted me out of the fun, that or I can't read.

But count me in!! And I sent of my details to that email the other day.

If noob3 wants his girlfriend to signup for the event, tell him to her to login and post it herself then. Or are you his girlfriend? Sorry, I don't know who the hell you are. I don't know who any of you are.

Where am I?

Why didn't you just write it normal, take the picture in the mirror, and then use an image manipulator to flip it over?

Or better yet, use the timer function on your camera?

The first step would've taken time.

Secondly, my camera is so "ghetto" it doesn't have a timer function, or else I would have used it.

Mockery Nov 24th, 2006 08:20 PM

Pending the remaining 4 people get approved, we have 30 people signed up so far. That should make for a lot o' amusing secret santa stories this year. :o

You will all be notified sometime early next week who you will be sending your gifts to. However, you might wanna save yourself some time and get the shopping done now... unless, of course, your plan is to buy a gift specifically related to the person who you've been assigned to. Just keep in mind, try to keep the gifts entertaining/amusing so that the person can post some good photos with 'em.

And again, just as a reminder if you haven't already done so...

Please EMAIL the following info to santa@i-mockery.com:

-Your Full Name
-Your Full Mailing Address
-Your Name/Alias here on the I-Mockery forums.


So far I've received 26 of the address emails. Early next week I'll make a list of who still hasn't sent in their address.

Emu Nov 24th, 2006 08:21 PM

I'm tempted to post pictures of what I got, but that wouldn't be fun :(

Although I will say that I think I've found ----------------------------------.

Chojin Nov 25th, 2006 12:06 PM

man, this is nuts. do we really have this many lurkers?

Emu Nov 25th, 2006 12:52 PM

And these are just the ones who want presents >:

Mystie Nov 25th, 2006 01:10 PM

I'd just like to say that in the event someone would get dicked out of a present like last year, I might be willing to put together some sort of consolation prize in addition to the one I'm sending.

Also if I get anything gay like home-made cookies and bath salts I'll be sorely dissapointed.

Mockery Nov 25th, 2006 02:44 PM

Thanks Mystie, but don't worry about it, I'm already going to try covering anybody if they get dicked over. I'm counting on people to live up to their ends of the bargain and best honest about it this year though, so hopefully there won't be any problems.

Chojin Nov 25th, 2006 02:52 PM

speaking of which mystie we'll need a letter and picture ;<

randomskyfears Nov 25th, 2006 03:18 PM

i don't just want presents. i think its a cool idea, and i've already got several things in mind to send. come on, give the new guys a chance

You're on the list, just get that verification letter sent in and you'll be good to go. :picklehat

Grislygus Nov 25th, 2006 03:35 PM

Allright, after finally figuring out what my brother deleted, my camera is working again.

Chojin Nov 25th, 2006 04:20 PM

Mystie's registered, but not active. That's why there's an 'and active' after the 'registered' part in the first post. I realize there were a lot of italics in there, so I'll let this one slide.

32 posts in over a year is not active unless your name is Swamper.

Microshock Nov 25th, 2006 04:37 PM

Hey when i post my secret adventure story.......how do i make pics appear here

so far i only know how to make a link to a place that has pics

Grislygus Nov 25th, 2006 04:52 PM

Just use a free image uploading service, like imageshack or photobucket. Sheesh.

executioneer Nov 25th, 2006 05:02 PM
