Hm, yeah. When John used to do SS, we had a little system setup. Is it just Frank running SS now? I could probably set it up with him. There's a little list to maintain for who gets the icon and such.

I can still take care of it so that you don't have to do anything, Bill. I'll do it now... yes

I think all you'd have to do would be to change the link to go to the thread -- but now that I think about it, that likely doesn't matter. So, for convenience, maybe just remove the link when you click on the hat. yes

Or, if you want, have it go to a list of people participating (i.e. have the icon) like how clicking on some of the other icons takes you to a list of people with that icon?

I might try to improve the link to auto-work. But, also, there are 2 SS topics now, right?

I had sent a pm to Frank about this earlier offering to set it up for him. I could even give both of you access to the santa hat list, if that makes sense...

Right. But, again, I'm not sure pointing people at the topic really matters any more. It might be more fun to just have it list everyone taking part like other icons do. yes

I think that makes sense, yes. We might take turns running the normal one in the future. (Frank will always run the high-roller one.) yes

Oh yeah, I could make it a user list kind of thing fairly easily. I guess the SS topics aren't generally hard to find...

Right -- and by the time we have santa hats, the signup is already passed anyhow -- so sending others to the thread doesn't really make a difference. yes

OK, I gave Frank admin access to the secret santa icon user list.

I removed the link on the icon for now (it was the old forum topic). I'm looking into the user list idea.

I've got the secret santa icon linking to the list of users doing Secret Santa now.

Sorry for the late chime in, just noticed the thread. This new method will make it much easier to manage, and it handles (on my end) very similar to adding people into private forums. smile

We need to have a secret Satan one year where the object is to give the person the worst game you can find locally for around $20.

Has to be a system they own, so they can feel the terror

I like the idea of doing a white elephant, but I feel like there won't be much interest in something like that.

I know, I'm just trying to think of ways to get more people to buy Balan Wonderworld.

Goodness! I LOVE the idea! They'd know they're expecting a terrible game, so it's not disappointing. I'd say one rule though, the game CANNOT be terrible because of lag. It must run smoothly.

I wonder if people would participate in this. I think I would. I think it would be bizarrely fun.

I would participate in that. I'm not sure why, but I find it hilarious.

@benstylus @nonamesleft @Bleed_DukeBlue

Maybe it's something I can look into during the summer? If John is taking care of regular Summer Secret Santa, I totally don't mind setting something like this up alongside high roller. Maybe we can add themed white elephant exchanges?

Nice. I like all of these exchange things. I would have participated in the regular secret Santa or high roller one this year, but I've been in and out of town so much that I wasn't sure if I could pull it off this year.

Unless I do a White Elephant somewhere in between the annual summer and winter exchanges. Maybe a spring/fall white elephant?
