You have to mail out a real letter too since you're a new user, and I haven't even received your PM yet so I can send you the mailing address. You'd better jump on that fast or you won't be able to make the deadline this year.

No problemo, we'll see you next year for the event, and you can still enjoy all the posts that people make this year even if you're not an actual participant.

I put Rush on the RL letter and mailed it today so I hope it gets there on time. Out of my hands and it's now a part of 'the system'.

SIGNUP THREAD

It's that time of year again. Time for I-Mockery's 3rd annual Secret Santa Event! 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 forums in this thread. Then the Mockers who sent out gifts will receive gifts of their own to post on the forums. What this holiday commemorates exactly is lost to history, but tradition is tradition, and if there's anything internet addicts hate, it's change. So are you ready to send gifts to and receive gifts from people who, in all likeliness, are complete strangers? You bet you are!

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 SENDING A GIFT TO. You should NOT share this information with anyone else. You will then buy a present with this person in mind - if you don't know anything about this person, don't worry about it, just buy something you think would be fun for just about anybody to receive and post pictures of. Make this a good present, but don't spend too much on it (between $15 and $20 USD, not including shipping costs). Send them their present WITH YOUR FORUM NAME IN THERE SOMEWHERE by December 5th. Shortly thereafter, you will receive a present from your very own Secret Santa! Take pictures of your gifts, import or scan 'em in, upload them, and share them with us by posting them this thread by December 20th. Feel free to create a fun story about your gifts with the photos. During this time, you should also buckle yourself up for jingle bells of 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 we've done in previous years. 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 SIGN YOURSELF UP, you must do so by MAKING A POST IN THIS THREAD BY NOVEMBER 27th.


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 observe all deadlines and follow all of the instructions.

You MUST spend the required amount of $15 - $20 on the gift for your recipient. This amount does not include any shipping charges.

You MUST have a working camera (buy a disposable digital camera 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. We've been lenient about posting photos in the past, but there's no reason why anybody wouldn't have access to take a picture and post it on the web these days, so you will be banned if you fail to post your photos by the deadline unless you received your gifts late. If that happens, contact us and we'll work something out for you so you can post your photos a few days later.

If you want to be lame and make/build something, that's fine and dandy, but please keep the spending minimum in mind and throw some other goodies in there. If you think parents really like it when their kids give them a crayon drawing as a present, you're wrong. DEAD wrong. If you're making something, we strongly suggest sending it in addition to the $15 - $20 worth of gifts that you buy for the person. Your mailing address CANNOT be a P.O. Box. No gifts will be sent to P.O. boxes nor will anyone with a P.O box as a mailing address be allowed to participate in the Secret Santa event.

IF YOU'VE BEEN REGISTERED LESS THAN A YEAR:

To prevent misuse, any member who has been registered and active with these forums for less than a year MUST do the following:

1. Provide a picture of themselves with a sign that says both "I-MOCKERY SECRET SANTA 2007" along with their message forum name/name in plain view.

2. Post this picture in this thread for all to see.

3. Send a PM to Mockery, who will then provide you with a 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 the mailing address he provides you with. The letter needs to include your full name, return mailing address and your name here on the I-Mockery forums.

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 27th.

The cutoff date for SENDING GIFTS is December 5th.

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 to avoid delays in people receiving their gifts.

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.

Do NOT send a PM or email to the person who you are sending a gift to in an attempt to let them know that you're their Secret Santa. It's called "Secret" Santa for a reason, people.


WHEN RECEIVING YOUR GIFT PACKAGE:
You MUST take photos of all the items you receive and post them on them in this Secret Santa thread no later than December 20th, 2007.

You MUST post some comments so everybody knows what you thought about the gifts you received. Creating a fun holiday story with your photos is also recommend, but not a requirement.

If it's getting close to the posting deadline and you still haven't received your own Secret Santa gift package (say by roughly December 15th) please send a PM to Mockery so your Secret Santa gift sender can be contacted to see what the hold up is.

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES:

You can still participate in this event, but we will do our best to pair you up with somebody else who lives outsite of the U.S. as well. This is to avoid one person getting stuck with higher shipping charges. However, if we have an odd number of foreign participants, we'll obviously have one person who has to send his/her gifts out of the country. But hey, it's all part of the Secret Santa game and we expect everybody to live up to their end of the deal and not squabble over petty things like a few additional bux for shipping.

she wants to be paired with a vet, and she wants a girl (if she can get one, she thinks it a girl will be easier to shop for as she was unpleased shopping for hickman last year )

"Draw A Sidewalk" can join when she posts here herself. And you both need to send separate emails because that's how I'm keeping track of all this shit. Furthermore, she'll get paired with a vet (if she signs up in time) since she participated before, but I'm not taking any other requests as far as who gets paired up with who. This is a "secret" santa event after all. So if she can't deal with being paired up with a guy (which is more likely to happen) then she should prolly sit this one out.

Off topic, but How did you get the 'Pickleman' smiley?

On topic, you said "but I'm not taking any other requests as far as who gets paired up with who. This is a "secret" santa event after all." but Would it be possible to not be paired with someone outside of the U.S.? The only reason I say that is, I would have trouble shipping it. Sorry.
