2018 GD Secret Santa: Friendship with Santa Claus ended, Now Tech Talk is new Best Friend


#1

Its that time of the year. Halloween can get bopped by the Secret Gifting Service. I’ve been waking up at 4:30 this whole week so this paragraph may be week. What shouldn’t be is the attendance for this. Need to put this as clear as possible:

LAST DAY OF SIGN UPS IS NOVEMBER 17TH, ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE SENT TO YOUR EMAIL ON THE 18TH SO YOU CAN GET READY FOR BLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR AMAZON WISHLISTS WORK PROPERLY WHEN OTHER PEOPLE CLICK THEM. E-MAIL ONE TO YOURSELF, LOG OUT OF AMAZON AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO SEE IF IT LOADS UP PROPERLY. KTHX.

And now, for the main copy/paste of the evening:

How it works:

You sign up and buy a random SRKer a Christmas gift and a random SRKer will buy you one too. This is a sacred GD tradition so do not screw over anybody on gifts because it is an automatic permaban. We understand it gets tricky with the postal office so don’t think its a hammer drop just because silly things happened in the mail. This is usually opened only to members who have been around for a year already (and active GD users). So if you’re brand new, please post that you want to join and I’ll do some snooping to make sure you actually post here.

Some quick copy/pasting from last year thread for recaps:

Bolded twice because its so nice. Get the danged tracking so everybody can have fun doing this. Secondary reminders from Val:

Buy the tracking option please.

After you sign up, send an e-mail to Pertho14@gmail.com with the title “SS Sign Up Username” with the following information

  1. SRK Handle
  2. Full Name
  3. Full Address
  4. Are you willing to ship internationally?
  5. Stuff you like (Feel free to link your amazon/newegg/thinkgeek/etc wishlists)

and one last message from Days of Valaris Past:

Not letting one of the best things in this site go the way of the Rep Bars.

MINIMUM IS 30 DOLLARS FOR THE GIFT.

That’s nice!!!


#4

I answer the call…


#5

I’m so in. My favorite time of the year on srk


#6

Where’s everybody else at? I’m checking this thread at least 3 times a day for new people?

:sob::sob::sob:


#7

I told you it probably wasn’t going to happen. :sob:


#8

Fine, I am in. Cash is a little tight with 2 babies and a 1 year old in daycare, so I was thinking about taking a pass this year if sign ups were robust enough.


#9

Sign me up I’m down.


#10

I hope more people sign up. This has been a great tradition every year here on SRK even though I’ve never participated, I’ve always lurked the thread every year.


#11

Still watching it like a hawk.

Will update list of people soonish. Was hoping for more peeps.


#12

Sign me up. No matter what form SRK takes in this i’m always down to get a fellow SRK member a gift. Maybe send a flare to the Discord folks to remind them sign ups are up.


#13

Will update later on tonight.


#14

Updated, join you savages.

Doesn’t look like this is going to actually happen.

@Darksakul mentioned merging this one with the Tech Talk Secret Santa. Outside of that not sure how else we could make it legitimately happen.


#16

I’m fine with just letting it die. :cry:
It was a good run.


#17

We gave it a shot…damn Xenos.


#18

Im in.

That being said forums are dead for the most part. There is a SRK General on discord and that may be the way to go now or merge with Tech Talk which has a Facebook also.


#19

Somebody should create a clean thread with all the current Discord resources to help people moving to the post-forums era. We had an out of date thread that kinda got destroyed with random bickering: be nice to have a nice clean reference point for the new generation. :+1:

So sad. I really wanted to take part in this and be more involved with the community. :frowning:
