"I've got a good feeling about this." -Han Solo




It's time for the annual (bi-annual?) GameTZ Secret Santa Christmas 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 Monday, December 10th at ~3pm Eastern. Partners will then be assigned and emailed out later that day. Gifts must be received by Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24th. 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 95% of the bond). You should be sending me exactly 10 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!

Yes, that's fine. People will often look at your Wanted list. The only issue is when they can't find anything in the price range and have no idea -- then some people have trouble.

Or, if you want, just put "Whatever is great!" in the Wanted section and be happy for whatever. yes

Looks like I may have to skip this year. We're leaving for our cruise on the 14th and won't be back until the 22nd, so it's an awfully tight window for me to get gifts and get them shipped if I get someone that doesn't have some fairly easily attainable items on their list. I'll have to think about it, but have fun regardless!

No. Unless someone is willing to cover your bond for you, you will have to become a subscriber and have enough subtime to cover your bond.

@Tad is such a Barbie Girl, in a Barbie World....

Don't get me wrong, I don't feel it necessary for my SS to just stick to my want lists. I like Nintendo, myself, but with what games I already have and the systems I have to play them on, I'm trying to refrain from adding another system (Switch) to my already pile of unplayed games. I will eventually get one as I liked seeing some of the games on it.

Meanwhile, going to add to my lists.

I see people ask this all the time. You don't need an even number of people since everyone is matched with someone different. Imagine you are in a big circle and you just give a gift to someone on the right. Doesn't matter odd/even.

Not sure if it was because of an odd number, but I ended up with two santas once. These awesome guys teamed up and got me Demon's Crest. Best secret santa ever.

Go ahead and sign up. If for some reason things get difficult @John can assign me 2 secret Santas. I really don't mind at all smile


I'm hoping we get like 7 more people signed up, so we can at least match the size of last year. Maybe I'll drop some messages to those who did July Secret Santa.


If anyone who hasn't sent their bond yet needs a subtime loan, just drop me a message!

With it being drawn today, you will probably be fine. Just grab something and ship from Amazon if you want to be quick.

Yes, that "non-participating" account is the admin account that never participates. I should change the code to hide it, but I just haven't gotten around to it. smile

EDIT: I finally cleaned that up so that it doesn't count the admin user at all. So, now the count is accurate. yes

I use a paid app called Dashlane. 99 percent of the time it works great, auto generating strong passwords, changing passwords on the fly after security breaches and saving them across all my devices. The other 1 percent it flops since it can't autodetect password management on custom sites.

They're remaking Child's Play. My wife's high school friend is married to the producer (He also produced the new It).

My old My Buddy doll used to scare the hell out of me. The new teaser references it. Instead of Good Guy they call them Buddi now.

That's pretty sweet. I guess it's about time for a Chucky remake.

I had found out about Robert the Doll during one of my insomnia episodes, while reading weird articles online. He can be visited in the Florida Keys. Supposedly if you DON'T ask his permission to take a photo, it always turns out blurry and bad crap can happen to you. Tempting to try and test it, but I don't know... we might go visit this summer. I have been wanting to go somewhere beachy for a while. So if we do, visiting him will be on the list.

Weird stuff can happen when it comes to dolls. My mom had one that moved its head on its own and will stare at you. It ended up in the fireplace for obvious reasons.

You're welcome!! I tried to give variety, but those One Piece posters I really had to get because it's a favorite anime of mine for sure! I need to get back on it. I'm still way behind from what I remember on Crunchyroll.

You did get part. I tried to get the gifts to arrive together, but failed. Genuinely surprised the Zelda shield arrived first. The rest should be there anytime. Merry Christmas brother!

Yeah, I just Googled the Sharper Image DX-1 and it looks like the quad fits inside with the batteries. Look and see! Otherwise, it is hilarious to get a remote (and I see the charger too, I think!) and no quad! smile

Ahhhh yah, there's stuff on the inside of the remote, derp!

Man, my SS is making me feel like I did a crap job. I spent more than I was supposed to, but I feel like I failed on the creativity part. This stuff was seriously awesome. Just taking the time to write up a few things put so much more feeling into it.

Very well done Secret Santa!

I received two items and think I am to expect a third (one of my gifts could possibly be two of the categories my SS gave me), so I am holding off posting what I got until Friday.

I received my SS gift today, woot!! I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. I got a bunch of "the new 52" comics and judging by the covers these should be a fun read! Thanks a bunch @classicrock909 and Merry Christmas!!!

I love seeing people getting comics from the SS, one year I asked for Moon Knight comics and got almost 30 of them. I still have them all and have read them many times.

Seriously... thank you so much whoever you are. That was extremely generous, especially for a complete stranger!

My fiance and I absolutely loved the Christmas props. She already took pictures of our poor puppy with them lol. I'm sure the family will love them too on Christmas Day. Thank youuuu!!

And you know I'm going to have a blast playing Ni No Kuni II. It's actually been a while since I've sat down and played an RPG. I literally couldn't believe it when I opened that package! Again, thank you so much!!

It is fairly normal for some people to simply not mark "sent" or "received" after they have done such.

That's my bad, I actually just checked and forgot to mark sent. Ilmy partner already received, yet I never marked sent. I fixed that now.

Hopefully that's the case for others as well. This year felt like Secret Santa Speed Run Mode this year!

Thank you so much Secret Santa I received a bunch of Fallout goodies that I will display with pride and send a picture of when I figure out how lol

I will send my gift out tomorrow, my apologies my father in law went in the hospital with pneumonia and now there are tests being done to see if he has lung cancer. It will be a hospital Christmas for the family. But hey one day at a time.

I think people misunderstood what I said here. All the gifts I ordered for my partner arrived yesterday, I like to package them up in one package with a note. I sent this morning.

I did some recon and found a very old post which may have helped me out by searching the word "favorite" and going into archived posts. I got you, jerk. Muahahahaha. Expect the second part of your gift shortly after Christmas (hopefully).
