Secret Santa 2010 - The Sign up is OVER + All PMs sent!

on: November 16, 2010, 08:42:03 am
So once again, it is that time of the year.

For those who are not familiar with the Secret Santa, it basically is an anonymous gift exchange activity.
As the name suggests, it has a mystery factor: You know who you are giving a gift to, but not who you are receiving it from.
Since we are Pixelation and all, we will be dealing with "pixel gifts"

If this activity caught your attention, please read this thread carefully.

Some things you should be aware of:

  • Only people who signed up before the PM send out will be able to partake in this activity.
  • For signing up, reply on this thread with a message on the lines of "I sign up" or "Count me in". If any message is not clear, it will be ignored.
  • Only sign up if you are 100% sure you can deliver a gift for your partner. If you do not deliver anything by the due date, you will be banned from the forums for a while and won't be able to participate in the next Secret Santa.
  • When signing up, add a few extra bits of info about you, things you like or dislike, hobbies, etc. You know, to make the gift making easier.

The Sign up starts today (Nov. 16th, 2010) and it will be open for a week or so (Nov. 23rd).
As mentioned, you can only sign up BEFORE the PM send out. Act fast before it is too late!

Soon after the Sign up is over, I will send a PM to all the participants with their partner's name (the one you should be making a gift for).

After that you will have until December 23rd to finish your gifts.
Once you are done with it, PM me the gift. Don't forget to mention who your partner is, as it speeds up the process of organizing the whole thing.

So remember:

  • November 16th~23rd - Secret Santa Sign up[/s]
  • November 24th (or so) - PM send out[/s]
  • December 23rd - Last day to send in your gifts!

If you have any questions feel free to PM me.



Q&A

What kind of gift should I make?
As mentioned, we will be dealing with "Pixel Gifts". Just pixel something for your partner. It can be anything really, an avatar, an animation, a mockup... whatever you think that could work.

I will be away on December 23rd. Can I still participate?
Sure. You can always send me the gift before the 23rd of December (which is, in my humble opinion, recommended). As long as you can send something before the due date is over, you are good to go.

I couldn't finish my gift... Can I send a WIP?
Yes, but you will still get a strike... and you must finish it as soon as you can. Or else!  :mean:

Can I make gifts for someone who is not my parter?
Sure, but first focus on your partner. Once you are done, feel free to make gifts for anyone.



Wrapping
(Oh gosh, we need to update these...)



All the gifts need to be wrapped (hyperlinked) in one of these wrappers.
If there is any you'd like for you partner, simply mention it in your PM once you send me the gifts (just addresss to them as A2, B4, C1, etc).
If you don't choose one, a random one will be assigned.

Yes yes! Sign me up and count me in.

I'd like something psychedelic this year, listen to this if you need an aide. Bonus points if you can work Carl Sagan in there.
(any wrapping will be fine)

Shit yes :3

Any 'E' wrapping will be good for me.

I like:
Palettes with 16 or fewer colours
Colours which nobody has ever used before! (the more purple the better, though)
Interesting dither patterns.
This specific pixel cluster:
Sci-fi stuff (no fanart though!)
Scenes/landscapes
Space/nebulae/night skies/stars (not celebrities x__x)

I wasn't going to mention stuff I don't want, but everyone else is so may as well.

I dislike:
Anime stuff
Anything christmassy

Oh, I did this last year! Great fun, sign me up!

I'm into High Fantasy, steampunk or cyberpunk, occasionally surrealism and romanticism, and appropriately saturated low-res stuff (like the PC version of Spelunky, for example).

Yo!  I sign up.

I like presidents, serif fonts, yellow, ships, There Will Be Blood, death metal and reggae, naked ladies, where's waldo, ping pong, gorilla.  But I'll be happy with anything.


Happy Secret Santa 2010!
