Here's the Secret Santa 2017 edition!!! (note that this isn't site sponsored)

The idea of this event is sending a present to another forum member and receiving a gift from a member as well.

The 22th of November will be the deadline for signing up for the Secret Santa 2017.

I’ll then randomly match people up and send everybody their victim's address via PM. Then you'll have the job of trying to find a suitable gift to make your victim as happy as when he was 11 years old and found the Terrordome, a Super Nintendo or a Chinese Major Bludd under the Christmas tree…..or at least make him smile at the thoughtfulness of the gift. The goal is to have the gifts sent out before Christmas, the recommended date to have your SS victim’s gift in the mail is before the 10th of December (See Step 6!).

START SENDING IN YOUR INFO

DEADLINE: Saturday, Nov 22th (You must have PMed me your address by this date!)

What to do:
STEP 1:
Make a WISH LIST. It can be anything toy related…
STEP 2:
Post your Wish List in the designated Wish list thread… viewtopic.php?f=24&t=46218
STEP 3:
Private Message (PM) me your mailing address and let me know if you are willing to ship internationally or not.
STEP 4:
Wait - I'll get with you via PM giving you the name and address of your victim...I plan to have victims and Secret Santa’s matched up and notified by the 23th of November.
STEP 5:
Shop/Customize - Get a gift ready. It shouldn't be more then 20 bucks.
STEP 6:
SHIP IT!! I know you think 'well duh' but some people have issues with this part. It’s nice to get the Secret Santa Christmas gifts BEFORE Christmas, and disappointing when you do not. The 10th of December date is a good guideline, but just make the best effort to get it there prior to Christmas.
STEP 7:
Wait - Sooner or later you should be receiving a gift from a random person as well.
STEP 8:
Brag - Show us what you got from your Secret Santa, Its fun for you and for us. You might also think of extending thanks to your Secret Santa. I'll open up a thread for that when the time comes.

RULES:
1. Only JC members with a 100+ forums post count are eligible to participate!
2. DON'T STIFF ANYONE. Its rare but it does happen.
3. Try to keep your gift under 20 bucks. It’s the thought and effort that counts, NOT the price tag.
4. Don’t be an ass. Be grateful and accept the gift in the spirit it was given.
5. Don’t ask to be matched up to So-n-So. Its random: you’ll get who you get (I usually have my wife randomize the list for me).

BONUSES:
If you feel like giving to more then 1 person just PM me that you would like to do so. It helps take up the slack when there’s an odd number of people and when there’s not, it’s out to be a cool bonus for one lucky JCer.

Post any questions here or PM me your info by 22 NOV and I’ll get to work ASAP. Also, do not forget to visit the Wish List thread and post your Christmas Wishes.

I was talking about this with my wife, why was this thread buried? It's usually pinned up top so it's easy to find.

That is sad.

I had been waiting to see it and finally looked for it. I had to dig to find it and it was already too late.

I just wonder if this had been up top if more people would have signed up?

It was up top and was announced on social media. Not enough interest this year.

Damn, I missed it in both places. That's a shame.
