Welcome to the 2014 Secret Santa Gift Exchange! #PresentGate!


You buy a gift, you get a gift. People who skimp on the gifts without a reasonable/provable explanation get BANNED. Seriously, the mods don’t fuck around on this. I will ban your ass myself and will be happy to.

2010 members and earlier only. This is not hardcoded, as there are more recent members who are well known by everyone in the community. We’ll let these members through by general consensus, but don’t expect to get in anyways. Final word will rest with me and the few people helping me out.
If you don’t get in, don’t take it personally, these things just take a lot of trust and some people have gotten dicked in the past.

The minimum is $30. SHIPPING NOT INCLUDED. If you can’t afford this, if you can barely afford this, don’t bother joining. Lack of funds come Christmas time is not an acceptable excuse, especially if someone sent you a $50 gift. Expect a shortage of funds around Christmas, and plan accordingly.

Sign ups will run until Midnight of November 7th. I’m not capping the number of entrants this year but if ever by some miracle I get too much I’ll make a decision.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Post when you receive your gift! Pictures are preferred but a thank you post with a little detail would be very much appreciated.

When Shipping, you MUST get a tracking number. I’ve been lenient on people whose packages got lost but not this year. Get a tracking number once you ship and send it to me in a pm with “Secret Santa: Tracking” in the title. If I don’t get a tracking number, you don’t get the benefit of the doubt.

Important things to remember:
-I’ll give assignments out in the second week of November. Please don’t ship out right away. I appreciate the enthusiasm but this is supposed to be for Christmas, don’t make your recipient get his present a month and a half early.
-I know I keep saying this every year but I will be strict on shipping. If the gift has not come in January, you best be able to produce a shipping number that proves you sent it out earlier or I will ban. Again, BUY THE TRACKING NUMBER OPTION.

Once you signup, I will randomly assign people to each other, and contact each person the name of the person who’s name they revealed. When everyone has received their gift, I will reveal the matchups

Well! Now that the bad stuff is out of the way let’s get on with it. To sign up you send me an EMAIL to Valaaris[at]gmail[dot]com with the Title “Sign up: your username” along with the following information:

  1. SRK Handle
  2. Full Name
  3. Full Address
  4. Are you willing to ship internationally?
  5. Stuff you like (Feel free to link your amazon/newegg/thinkgeek/etc wishlists)
    I’m sorry I can’t do PM’s but the new system on SRK doesn’t allow for folder or any sort of organization which is something I crave and need when I do these things.

Shipping info:
There are too many people internationally now so when you mark if you ship internationally or not keep in mind that Canada will NOT be considered international. I’m sorry if you find that BS but last year I had to assign people to others they had the previous year because 60% of people refused to ship out of the US.

Don’t send me an email if you aren’t eligible. I don’t care if you beg, buy premium, send me your address, send me dick pix.

Let’s do it! Holiday spirit and all that shit!

Fuck it…I’ll do it again this year.

Every year I tell myself “Alright this time it’s the last” then…fuck it one more.

So it’s #PresentGate, huh?

You’re not going to call me a misogynist if I don’t join, right?

Count me in

You know i’m in for the long haul fuckers!

When will you stop discriminating against newer members?

I’m down like a clown

this is a great idea

  • I’m already down!

Do you show up once a year fore Secret santa and then disappear? I don’t see you post ever outside of this o.O

I’m down. Last year I found a place that had a stockpile of old ass consoles and Ive been looking for a reason to give them my money

@orochizoolander‌ did you get that thing working okay?

I’m hoping I get an actual general discussion poster, Instead of some FGC enigma that slithered in, just for this

This is pretty much the only time i come on SRK lol.

Never. You want to have some guy who signed up yesterday to be your secret santa then not send shit lol. Also he clearly mentions if you can be vouched for you good.

And I love yall for that!

Well… I made duly sure to show up about a good 2 months before. Consider me the Dark Dragon of SRK being resurrected to plunge the world into darkness, only to be defeated by … THE SHINING SECRET SANTA FORCE. Then, I’m sealed away by my other responsibilities. Nigga gotta eat, yo!

Sure why not. I had fun last year!

i’m down

Count me in. Pretty sure VAlaris, GP and others can vouche for em despite “joining” in 2012.
