Once again it’s December 1st, and time for another secret santa thread!
Here’s the rules from last time.
How it works is I’ll make a wiki below this post, where anyone can enter their name. After a few days, I’ll close it and PM each participant who they’ll be gifting.
As for the gifts themselves, giving each other your addresses wouldn’t be wise, so the gifts must be over the forum. But they can be anything- a poem, short story, concept, whatever you can make. It’s the thought that counts, but the more creativity, the better.
About a week before Christmas, I’ll post another topic for everyone to share their gifts.
“I’ll be away from the forums and won’t be able to post my gift on time. What do I do?”
PM someone you know will be around and share the gift with them early, so they can post it on your behalf.
“I don’t know enough about the person I was assigned, how can I make a gift for them?”
Go to their profile, and look through their posts and/or topics. If that’s still not enough, you can PM someone you trust who knows them well. I would advise strict caution to hide your identity, but you can also make an alt to PM them directly.
“Am I allowed to ask others who they have?”
No, you are not. You can ask someone else for help via PM if you need, just as long as they aren’t the person you’ll be giving to. If you spoil the surprise for anyone, your Secret Santa is allowed to give you a picture of coal instead of your gift.
“Can I enter?”/“I live outside the US”
The event is open to everyone.
Following the popularity of Forum Trick-or-Treating, the game is back by popular demand. This time with some fun new spins on it.
The goal of the game is to get the most Christmas cookies before it ends. The main way to get them is through toys or gifts.
In addition, special events will appear at regular intervals.
- Every 250 posts, a Forumer Gift will appear. Which forumer is randomly selected from the leaderboard.
- Every 750 posts, a special game will appear!
Toys: Toys are single-use collectables. Their effects usually involve gaining cookies. They can alternatively be used to gain a flat amount of cookies based on rarity.
Gifts: Gifts can be considered a lockbox full of goodies. Only certain people can pick them up, and they have a special requirement to open after that. Which people and what requirement differ with each gift. Gift rewards are based on rarity.
|Toy color:||Red with grey trim||Green with red trim||Gold with silver star||You’ll know it when you see it|
