"Dude, you're embarrassing me in front of the wizards." -Tony Stark




It's time for the annual (bi-annual?) GameTZ Secret Santa Christmas in July 2018! (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 Thursday, July 12th at ~3pm Eastern. Partners will then be assigned and emailed out later that day. Gifts must be received by Tuesday, 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, 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!

It's not "Write a Letter to Secret Santa"

It's make a small list of ideas. If it's an important message, you can send it to John after Secret Santa's have been selected and he can message it to your SS when the time comes.

Do you mean you put it in and it just gets cut off and doesn't save the entire thing?

There is a problem in that I don't yet handle the weird characters that Apple started doing a while back. Bill had to change things on the site here to handle it, if I recall. I haven't had time to handle that -- so if someone with an Apple device does a long list, it seems to lose part of it.

I'll work on it if I have time. In the meantime, if you just send me a PM with what you want in your Wanted section, I can manually put it in the database. yes

Not easily. I archive the old DBs each time around, so it would take some digging.

Easiest (but still a lot of work) would be for someone to just search the General forum for the threads and then look at the summary image in each and note down the participants.

Wow didn't think it dated back that far. That's really cool though. Makes me even happier to have been a part of the festivities for as long as I have.

Anyone know when July Secret Santa first conceptualized?

Somebody (I'd do it, but super busy today) should look at the last couple of Secret Santas and @mention everyone that did one recently that hasn't signed up for this one. We always get people that somehow missed it in the forums and they are disappointed they couldn't do it. yes

Mine in particular is a mess to read on the SS site which basically doesn't allow formatting. So whoever my SS is, if you see this and need me to send a nice formatted version to John to forward to you, just let John know.

I can make a text list of your item lists upon request. pm me if you want something like that. I basically just do a database query. The text list can usually be imported into a spreadsheet from there.

I try to make a variety of wants to give a general idea... I know the target price can be a bit low realistically, but honestly, I don't mind spending more than the target price. As I try to make a variety of wants, I also try to gift a variety of stuff.

So hopefully, my want list both GTZ and SS are not vague for my SS. I don't expect brand freaking new stuff... LOL

I almost always go well over the minimum/target and this time was no exception. I see $10 as the bare minimum/baseline, but it's a lot more fun to get someone more.

Well I am beyond grateful...

I got home from a crappy day at work to find a large package at my front door. Went inside and immediately proceeded to open it up. Inside was a nice little note explaining the gift before I proceeded to find an Nvidia Shield Portable (in beautiful condition) with a Nyko branded TV dock. love love



I'm left flabbergasted. I've been wanting one of these guys for 5 years, and in the back of my head, almost forgot they existed. When I opened the package, to see the Shield, I was so damn surprised and excited! I immediately plugged it into it's charger, went through the initial set-up, and began installing the Android version of Portal. Played a little bit, and it's pretty impressive how it's held up! Portal is one of my favorite games of all time, so having another platform I can replay it on is so cool! I'm really excited to see what else this bad boy can do! My gaming rig has a high end 2013 Nvidia processor. Not sure if my Santa knew that, but now I can finally try streaming my Steam library portably! I'm also really pumped to see this can do on the retro front. :)

Thank you so fudging much Santa!! I did not deserve, nor expect, to receive a gift as awesome as this. This has got to be one of the most generous Secret Santa gifts I've ever received. Please drop me a message so I know who is responsible for making a day like today take a big 360 degree turn!!
