It's time for the annual (bi-annual?) GameTZ Secret Santa Christmas in July 2017! (Our thanks to CygnusTM for organizing these years ago. Now I run them on my own server using a modified version of his old code.)

Any subscriber without a current BTR that has earned a Bronze Star (Bronze Star) is eligible to sign up (unless you've been previously banned). If you do not meet these requirements and still wish to participate, you can contact me directly to request an exception to this rule. I rarely grant them, sorry.

For those of you doing this for the first time, just read ALL of this post carefully and then ask for help here if you are still confused.

The quick version of how to participate:

check Register on the GameTZ Secret Santa site. Use the same username that you use here to make things easier.
check Transfer your subtime bond to John (20 weeks for less than Silver Star (Silver Star) users, 10 weeks for everyone else.)
check (Optional) Post here in the thread that you are participating!
check Update all of your Wanted lists (on the site here and on the Secret Santa site that you just registered at) before signups close and Santa assignments are made!
check After you ship your gift, go back to the Secret Santa site and mark it as "sent."
check After you receive your gift, go back to the Secret Santa site and mark it as "received" and then be sure to thank your Santa!


The details:

As always, we will be using a subtime "bond" (10-20 weeks of subtime) to encourage people to follow through on sending. If you don't have at least a Silver Star (Silver Star), you will have to put up double the bond (20 weeks instead of the standard 10). Bonds should be sent to me (John) and I will hold them until your partner receives their gift. You can use this link to transfer Subtime to me. If you don't have enough GameTZ subtime for your bond, then you can buy subtime from the site! or make your own arrangements with another user. Bonds will ONLY be returned directly to the user that the bond is for. If arrangements are made for someone else to put up the bond for a Secret Santa user, it does not matter to me and I won't get involved -- the bond will still be returned to the participating user (or kept if they do not provide their gift) regardless of who actually paid the bond in their behalf. Participants will get their bond back in full when your partner marks their gift as received.

Signups are open now and will continue until Monday, July 17th at ~3pm Eastern. Partners will then be assigned and emailed out later that day. Gifts must be received by Monday, July 31st. At that time, anyone who hasn't yet received their gift may (at my discretion depending on the situation) receive one-half of their Santa's subtime bond. If a gift still isn't received after an additional week (December 30th), then the remaining half may be awarded. Plus you'll be ridiculed here for being a douche. And might get banned from future Secret Santas. Sending and receiving will be tracked through the signup site. It is very important that you update the site as soon as you send and receive so the subtime bond can be handled appropriately.

The target gift value is $10-20 US. Gifts MUST be worth a minimum of $10 US not including shipping. Every effort should be made to send a complete item. If you are sending something used, it should be complete and in at least "very good" condition. This is not a way to unload your unwanted crap.

People anywhere in the world may participate! If you are from outside the USA, you must mark the "Outside USA" checkbox when you sign up. Anyone from outside the USA must be willing to ship anywhere in the world. Users in the USA that are willing to ship anywhere in the world should mark the "Ship Anywhere" checkbox in your account settings and you may or may not be partnered with someone outside the USA.

Tips/Rules:
check You can't re-use your account from last time if you participated before -- you need to create a new one for each and every Secret Santa event.
check Look at your partner's wants and check his/her lists and posts. Put the same effort into selecting a gift for your partner that you would want someone else to put into yours.
check If your partner has inadequate "wants", don't give up! Try to figure it out. If you really get stuck, try a gift card or something like that!
check Make sure you provide adequate "wants" for your Santa. There should be at least 4-5 things on your list that fit in the target price/value range.
check When you get assigned a partner, start figuring out what you are going to get them! Immediately. Don't wait until the last minute!
check I'd prefer that people NOT talk so much about how they are going to do "great/special/extra gifts" and such if they happen to want to do that. The real intent is that people just exchange gifts that are worth around $15 or so and, hopefully, people will be happy with what they get. Don't brag that you're going to give more -- and don't get overly high expectations that someone is going to give you extra.
check In most cases, the person that you are assigned to is NOT the same person that is assigned to you. In other words, you aren't just making a 1-to-1 exchange with someone. You're buying a gift for someone that, most likely, is buying a gift for someone else entirely.
check Send your bond ONLY as a single transfer for exactly the right amount (10 or 20 weeks). Do not send multiple pieces of a bond until you reach your total. And do not use the "all" option because you don't have the full bond (i.e. you borrowed it and then had to send it 8 hours later, so you really only have 99% of the bond). You should be sending me either 10 weeks or 20 weeks -- nothing else.
check After you've received your gift, post in this thread thanking your Santa for what you received -- just so they know you appreciate whatever it was! (Or, if you've figured out who your Santa is somehow, you can just thank them privately if you'd rather.) Don't leave your Santa hanging without acknowledging their gift!
check No more organized thank-you gifts to John! I greatly appreciate the gifts that have been given in the past, but I really don't want it to be a habit. I run this for fun for people. I expect nothing more. And getting such things makes me feel guilty! So, seriously, just enjoy the gift-giving and I'm all set as far as thanks go! yes

WARNING
Some people suck. Despite our best efforts, people might still get stiffed. If you don't intend to follow through on your commitment here, please do not sign up.

Please keep discussions in this thread about the SS only, so things get don't out of hand like in the past. Off-topic posts may be removed!

Sorry for the delay. I'd like to keep it in July, so I've had to shorten things a bit, but I think it'll still work out. We'll do signups this week and then make the Santa assignments on Monday. Then you'll have two weeks from that day to get the gifts to people. I think that'll work.

Oh, and if someone is doing something complex and it'll be a few days into August or something, no worries -- just let me know. I'm not going to dock people subtime just because they were tight on time when trying to do something that might take a little longer. yes

Very true. I inherited some glass bottles from the 1700-1800s and went out and found an antique display cabinet to put them in. Looks pretty cool when all set up.

Had to find a way to give you the tracking number and I think the mister meeseek message was the best way to do it.

Nier is excellent too. One of my top ten ever.
Make sure to get endings a b c d e to get the full game. Once you get a and b the rest are faster and so worth it.

Touchdown Santa.

When I mentioned the Lupin stuff I already had I figured I'd get one of the oavs/tv specials I didn't have put out by Discotek recently but my santa went above and beyond and got the complete first series release. Then as if that wasn't enough they looked over my collection page here and got me one of the few Ghibli movies I didn't have, and it's one of the all time classics: Grave of the Fireflies. Thanks Santa you rock.

Was worried since I had no idea about Anime...

Did a search on the most wanted Anime movies and GotF was #2 I believe...and noticed it wasnt on your list.

As far as Lupin, I just went random with that.

Remember everyone -- Santas have until July 31st to get gifts to you -- that is a week from now.

So, no need to be "sad" or "disappointed" that your gift didn't arrive yet. Everything is right on schedule - some get them early; some get them later. No worries! yes

Of course, I don't really need anything..so I'm sorry if you felt like it was vague. I just listed stuff because I had to participate and I love Zelda, I just hope my Santa loves their gift... I signed up to give the gift more than to receive one :) I definitely loved what I got though.

No worries. I didn't mean you. I got some PMs from concerned people and I have to remind them that there is still plenty of time.

Some people start getting their stuff within a day or two because of Amazon Prime Santas -- and then some others start to panic when it's been a week. smile

Who the HECK is my Santa? And how the HECK long did it take you to become the man? This is honestly too much. I really, really appreciate it and once again, GTZ's Secret Santa is the furthest from a disappointment imaginable. I gave a bunch of suggestions expecting to only get one of them, but whoever my Santa is got me like half the amount of stuff I'd get from family at REAL Christmas. Again, this is awesome, and thank you so much. Feel free to pend up a trade if you'd like!

If it's shady, it'll be the first time I've ever known someone to get me 2 times in a row in any Secret Santa situation.

I also thought the GOT books were paperbacks, but they're straight up hardcover. Floored by the generosity regardless of who it is tbh lol

Had a fantastic dinner at Texas Roadhouse last night. You all were right, I needed a wheel barrel for my gut afterwards. Neat experience, never been to a place like that. There were a lot of people clapping and dancing for 2 peoples' birthday party. My 3yr old loved it and joined in which was silly. Great experience yes TY again SS.

To the 3 that down voted me -
Prob because of what I wrote/said ..

I am sorry for that... Just waited all the way until few days to deadline just to open a pretty decent size box and saw this in it...(box was good size to fit a bunch of stuff in it)
I felt like it was just stuff they had around the house and waited until last min and box those items up.

I even say if you have trouble - any amazon giftcard would do the trick :) ..

So yes, When I posted that - I was just a little upset.. but its a SS and I enjoy doing it!

So cool! I'm jealous. Curious, did he comment on ever seeing that poster before? I was searching around a lot of places to find the right poster. That one seemed to stick out to me because it was from a seller on Amazon but had no reviews and I didn't see that poster design on any other website.

ACTUALLY, he didn't comment to that, but his assistant said he'd never seen it before and thought it was pretty cool. I was #5 in line to get it signed and had about 500 behind me so he wasn't up for talking. He had also just pre-signed about 1000 books (I have one of those too.) I am not sure how he can do it night after night.

I did gush and tell him and he was one of my favorite actors, though I had planned not to tell him that because it's lame. He just smiled and said "It never hurts to hear it, love."

Happened real fast because he had to be through the crowd in a few hours.

If I had his fame I'd have my right hand reconstructed just to spend the rest of my days signing things.

The producers for Dark Matter need to sign him onto that show already. It may be a Firefly wannabe show but he'd run it well.
