"I'm not doing 'Get Help'!" -Loki




It's time for the annual (bi-annual?) GameTZ Secret Santa Christmas 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 10 week subtime bond to John.
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 weeks for all participants) to encourage people to follow through on sending. 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 Wednesday, November 22nd at ~3pm Eastern. Partners will then be assigned and emailed out later that day. Gifts must be received by Friday, December 22nd. 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 29th), 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 10 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!

Glad to see a GTZ veteran trying it out for the first time. It's a lot of fun. Hope you stick around for future years yes


Also if anyone needs a bond loan drop me a message. I've done them in the past and am cool with helping out some users. Just want to get as many people active as possible.

I've done a few other online Secret Santa's in the past, and the GameTZ Secret Santa has always been my favorite. Love this community smile

Regarding outside of the US users that will participate, if any, I was curious to know how well that has worked out in the past? I was actually thinking about doing something different this year and that is to check the box that I'd be willing to do a Secret Santa for someone outside of the US.

Any tips to follow when sending from US to anywhere outside of US, not including Canada because I've done that already??

Ok -- just closed signups and everyone that signed up sent their bond, so it looks like we're all set!

Give me a few minutes and then the emails should go out. Remember that it is not a 1:1 Santa -- so you will very likely get someone that doesn't get YOU, but gets someone else. A huge mix. yes

No -- because it isn't a 1:1.

So, User A could be the Santa for User B - who is the Santa for User C - who is the Santa for User A. Just as an example with odd numbers.

If you want to send something digitally, just send that user a week of subtime anonymously, and then leave what you want in the comment section. That way they won't know who sent it.

Received my gift today! It was a $25.00 gift card to ebay so i could get some games I wanted because my SS didn't know much about retro games. On top of that I also received 2 months of subtime, which is really good because I was starting to run low.

Thanks a ton!

As for my gift I went to a local store and picked up part of it. Was hoping to get more, but I will just have to get the rest online, which I will probably be able to sit down and do tomorrow.

So, I just wanted to say that it isn't a big deal if people just have gift cards on their list. I mean, I know it is fun to get people something different -- but some people are sometimes hard to have a list for and such. Lots of us are sometimes "specific" about the sorts of things we like -- and it is hard to let others get them for us. I have this problem at Christmas all the time. So, try not to worry too much if someone only has gift cards on their list -- they certainly aren't doing it to be rude or anything. They are just trying to make it work.

And, you don't HAVE to go that route. You can try to get them something else anyhow. Or maybe a gift card and some fun snack or something with it to keep it fun for you and them.

No worries! yes

We used to do this at a forum I was a part of some time ago. We got each other gifts, and... packages of Tootsie Rolls.

Got home from a rough day at work to find an Amazon package with what appeared to be the shape of a Switch game. I though to myself "Hmm... I don't remember ordering anything for the Switch" and sure enough it was my Secret Santa Gift!

It was a copy of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle! Thank you very much Santa. I've been so wishy washy on getting it, since I've never delved into a game of this type before, so now I have no excuses. I'm so excited I'm probably going to give it a go tonight! I don't know who you are, so if you'd like to make a trade out of this, or at least a proper thank you, please don't hesitate to message me.

Well, it's been so long since I've done in photo posting, so I can't figure it out now.

However, I just grabbed the mail and what did I find? My SS gift!!!

I got two Xbox 360 games:

1. Devil May Cry HD Collection
2. El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

Thanks Secret Santa!! All the more reason for me to get my video games back out!

It's all good, everyone -- LOTS of time left. No need to rush things. I start it early because people want to be able to buy for Black Friday -- but then that forces a bunch of people to be done even before the end of November!

So, really, no rush -- I kinda like it when people get them close to Christmas anyhow. yes

Copying this from the retro thread as they too have a santa going on and i thought it was sent through that one.

So, its been a weird year for me for alot of reasons health issues and such so it was such a blessing when I received this beautifully wrapped item (which i cant seem to post the pictures)

Inside was a SNES Classic!!! I started to cry! Thank you Christmas Hero!

The funny thing is i completed a trade for one about a month ago so now I have 2!

I would love to trade my old one and keep the new one smiley:::smile perhaps for some nes or SNES games if possible and fine with my SS smiley:::smile

@Jerry maan, this is too much. Still a little at a loss for words to be completely honest here.

Got a few assorted candies (Lindor bay-beee), a nice little Santa card, and then all wrapped up neatly under them was the Marvel Darth Vader Omnibus. An Omnibus alone is a treat for us dudes who can't get enough of oversized hardcovers, but an Omnibus of Star Wars comics is a Holy Grail for this guy. Honestly, this is a family-caliber gift - and even then I wouldn't expect something this badass haha. Thanks a lot man, this is exactly my sort of thing and you went waay way way above and beyond. Merry Christmas sir!

And I think I say this every Secret Santa - but once again I'm shown that, despite some rough spots throughout the year, the GTZ community is made up of some of the most classy and generous bunch of folks this side of the internet. Thanks again @Jerry and another to @John for organizing these, looking forward to July!

My Secret Santa nailed it.

I put on my list - any switch games on sale for Black Friday - and I received Lego Ninjago - Once of the few I couldnt find on sale that day!

I put on my list - anything minecraft or pokemon - because my son is obsessed - Received a minecraft pack that my son went crazy over - DIAMOND armor!

I believe I know the name - so I sent the user a message to confirm!

Thanks again for another successful SS.


He also wrapped the gifts - much better than what I did - because mine shipped from Amazon.

I have the original PC release of BulletStorm. I really enjoyed it! I'm curious what all is different with the Full Clip Edition besides graphics update.

After getting a $10 Xbox Live card and some sublime a few days ago, I got the rest of my gift today: Resident Evil Biohazard. Thanks SS

I got my loot today grin Nintendo Switch Cave Story+ and a super duper nice copy of Sega Genesis Heavy Nova (it's on my want list!). Seriously, @ErickRPG would be proud of this game's condition. According to the worldly Mark Bussler, Heavy Nova is "quite possibly the worst video game I have played in my entire life" so I needed to get that . Also good timing on Cave Story+ because I was thinking about getting it today with that Best Buy certificate from the Mario Odyssey preorder. Thanks SS!

That's cool :). I'd probably be interested in working something out for it on it's own deal lol

Unfortunately, bad weather kept me from my plans tonight after work. I don't like driving at night in bad weather for obvious reasons, so I'll be going to do my plans tomorrow during the day.

Wow I have to say my Secret Santa went above and beyond!

Was away for a couple of days but got in last night and seen I had two packages from Amazon which is usually
normal but I haven't been buying much lately so to my surprise they were from my SS.

My secret Santa must be a reader as he or she actually got me a freakin Hyrule Hystoria, Rick & Morty Volume 1 & Batman The Killing Joke, which I thought was kinda odd because I actually didn't mention anything Batman HOWEVER, that's actually my favorite comic book hero/billionaire and I'm actually obsessed with all things Batman lol and it's actually hardback.

You're Awesome Secret Santa! And I even received a 3DS XL Backup Battery which is pretty awesome in its own lol

Best Secret Santa Yet! I don't even know if I'll get that many gifts from the family lol!

Thank You!!!!!~!~!~!~!

They did about a year ago. Many said it was not nearly as good as the comic.

Just skip the first half, once the real plot in it's pretty good from what I remember.
Speaking of comics I think it's time to re open the thread !
