Secret Santa 2008 - The Sign up is OVER + all PMs SENT!

on: November 15, 2008, 05:48:15 pm
So it is that time of the year again :D

The Secret Santa, for those who are not familiar with it, is an annoymous gift exchanging activity.
Basically, you will be making a present for someone and receiving another one.
The catch is that you know who you are giving it to, but not who is giving it to you, which makes it a very enjoyable and thrilling activity.
In our case, since we are Pixelation and all, we will be dealing with "pixel gifts".

Only those who sign up in this thread will be able to take part in it.
If you intend to do so, read carefully this thread.

First of all, here are some things you should be aware of:

  • For signing up, you must reply to this thread with a post along the lines of "I sign up" or "Count me in".
    Any message without a clear response will be ignored.
  • Also, when signing up, please put a couple of facts about you. What you like or dislike, hobbies, or whatever you think that would help the gift making.
  • Please only sign up if you are 100% sure you will be able to make something for your partner.
    If you sign up and do not deliver anything by the due date, you will get a strike and won't be able to participate in the Secret Santa next year.
    Be considerate and think about your partner. How would you feel if you didn't get a gift yourself?

The sign up starts today (November 15th, 2008), and will be open until November 24th (Monday; so you have 9 days to sign up).
You can sign up until I temporarily close the thread, so don't miss your chance.
Once closed, no more participants will be accepted.

Shortly after the sign up is over, you will receive a PM (Personal Message) with the name of the person you have to pixel for.
Then you will have until December 23rd to finish your gift.

Once you are done with yours, please PM me the gift and your partner's name, so I can organize the whole thing before Christmas.

So remember:
  • November 15th~24th - Secret Santa Sign up
  • November 24th/25th - PM Send out (You will receive your partner's name in your PM)
  • December 23rd - Last day to send in your gift

If you have any questions feel free to ask in this thread or PM me



Q&A

What is a "Pixel Gift"?
A pixel gift is basically a pixel art piece you will be giving your partner. It can be anything, from an animation, to an avatar or a full fledged picture.
Whatever you want, as long as it is pixelled.

I will be away on December 23rd, Can I still participate?
Sure. You do not have to deliver the gift exactly ON December 23rd. You can send it in as soon as you are done (actually I would recommend everyone to do this).
So as long as you can deliver it on time, you are good to go.

How are you going to pick the partners?
First I will be assigning everyone a number according to the order you sign up.
Then I will be running this random sequence generator and everyone will get a new number.
After that I will re-run the generator once again to pick the order.

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

Can I pixel a gift for someone that is not my partner?
Sure, feel free to make extra gifts, but before that focus on your partner's.



Wrapping



On the Secret Santa thread, all the gifts will be wrapped (hyperlinked) in one of these wrappers.
You can pick one for your partner (when doing so, address to them as A2 or B3 etc).
In case you don't choose one, a random one will be assigned.

I hereby express my acceptance of the above contract.

I request wrapping D5 (appropriately bland and insignificant).

I like moon-lit walks on the beach, snuggling by the fireplace, efficient use of bits, dark fantasy and hard sci-fi.

For further inspiration: RECYCLE!

Ookay, take a deep breath and...I'M IN! I do not have a wrapping preference.

(Will update with a list later

What I like

-Command and conquer series (including the red alerts), Age of empires series (and some spinoffs)
-a little of the Sonic comic book universe and Sonic universe in general (closet fan)
-Super Mario Brothers Z fan movies by alvin earthworm, Cave story, some other indie game art
-Homeworld 1, Chris Foss illustrations, the Mech Assault universe, Civilization series, Sims, Halo
-Super Smash brothers series, shmups (in process of designing a shmup rts simulater screen saver)
-video game music, instrumental music, relaxation music, upbeat music, RPG handbooks art work
-Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Narnia Chronicals, Dinotopia (don't laugh, the movies sucked),
-Legos (don't laugh on this one either, its creative), Star Gate (original), Star Trek, Runescape, steampunk, Megaman + x series
-Garfield (always wanted to make some traditional rpg/game with that guy), Get fuzzy, Dilbert, BC, Real Life, Non sequiter,
-Mallard, The Far Side, some parodies, the original Pokemon games + Gale of darkness,
-Bone by Jeff Smith, the Myst/Riven games and books, cryptozoology myths and stories, fireworks/explosions
-camping, bike riding, Paintballing, swimming (when I can do these activities)
-i also like cats as well
-christianity

What I dislike

-Nudity (i will make a burn animation of it)
-Barny (same as above)
-Spongebob (double burn with explosion execution style shooting)
-anything vulgar or obscene
-dystopia's
-Harry Potter (will send it to hell)

But, what I would like most importantly, is to go "Wow".

I noticed this is a bit long. So I'm going to work on cutting it short a bit.

Since, most of you aren't done yet. Here's some more ideas.

-Platform/RPG mockups
-Isometric
-Large, full scale battle mockups

Count me in.

I figure this is a fun opportunity to get involved with Pixelation. I must profess that unlike many of the other people here, I am not the greatest at art, but that said, I figure this is a fun challenge.

Okay, I might as list things that I like!
* Cutesy things
* Bright, pastel colors.
* Contrasted and colorful dark things.
* Epic explosions and pew pew lasers
* Exaggerated and eccentric concepts
* Waffles
* Game mockups -- I make indie games in my spare time, so if you fire me a pretty mockup, I'd consider helping you make the mockup into actual GAME.
* Molasses Meow (warning: excessive use of 4 shade pink ramp and glowy neon colors)
* Sidescrollers and shmups -- my favorite genre of games with some of my favorites including: Kirby, Metroid, Megaman, Castlevania, Metal Slug and Gradius.
* RPGs and strategy games following after: Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Advance Wars, Final Fantasy Tactics.
* Other games worth throwing out here: Katamari Damacy, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Shadow of the Colossus

I'd prefer a non-Christmas theme, but that's probably because artwork of Santa has been rather explored to death already. XD

Anyway, looking forward to the challenge!

Favourite colours: blue and black (thereafter green and purple). I hate pink.
I would be thrilled to get something of my original characters (found here: http://bluedelirium.com/main.html > characters).
But if you don't feel like doing any of them, then I also like mockups, Pokémon, Phoenix Wright, Zelda (Link, Ezlo and Tingle), cute monsters, frogs, fantasy stuff, monkeys, rain, and hot guys (of course).
If you do fanart, then I'd prefer if it was personalized for me somehow :crazy: (you know, not just a random sprite of Link). Crossovers with my characters would be awesome.

*(Depending on how early I wake up :P)


Indigo: Yeah... I was going to make one but then I got busy, and then Ptoing was going to make one and I don't know what happened after that.
But since the sign up is almost over, whatever I suppose.
I'll make one for the actual Secret Santa Thread instead.

I like lots of things. Just draw something in your own style, and I'll be happy :). If you want something more to go by, something atmospheric would be nice perhaps. Or something to cheer me up. Little details are nice. (will maybe edit later if I think of something else)

Now I'm tired  :blind:


Anyway, now that you all got your partners (the person you have to pixel for), you can start with your gifts.
I said this many times, but DON'T FORGET TO PIXEL IT BEFORE THE DUE DATE!

And uhm, if I made any errors with the PMs (even though I checked 3 times), please notify me and I'll try to fix it.
If you have any questions, now the thread is open for all that kind of stuff.

OH!, and do not reveal who your partner is in any case (unless you are PMing me).
Otherwise you are spoiling the activity!

Make the most wickedawesome pixel art thing you can possibly manage for whoever you got! If that means a 1024X768 wallpaper, hammer on.

I will not be able to participate this year. Things have gotten rather busy for myself lately.
Too many exams and projects... and then I would like some rest.
Ohwell. Such is how it goes...
hopefully ill have some time on my break this year, to pixel something new, since iv been rather inactive lately.

Good luck to all participants.
Secret Santa, has always been something iv looked forward to, for the past 4 yrs!

Passout, that's kinda' a gray area, as you are not to post the piece in question any where here, and if caught by a member elsewhere, could also suffer some possible consequences. Don't worry about it looking super fantastic, though, as it's the thought that matters, not the "Ub3r L33t Skillz!!1!".  :P

Last year I found myself struggling to get anything done before the deadline(because of pure lack of inspiration and my person really provided no good hobbies or likes for me to work off of), and my end result was less-than-stellar, to the point I'm pretty sure whoever got mines was more than disappointed. I wish I could have participated again, but I don't think I'm up to it and I'd hate to send off a shoddy present again.

I have an idea for what I'm gonna do... I've just gotta crack down and get 'er done.

I'm pretty damn excited to see what everyone's made, though. Pumped to see what I'm getting... but really, it's as if any one gift is a gift to everyone, even though it's tailor-made for one specific person.

...I mean, who hasn't enjoyed FrankieSmileShow's gift to Xeno-Striker?

1 WEEK LEFT!

Don't leave everything for the last minute, and start working on your gifts!


Is there any where I can go to get halp on my gift?

Uhm, I guess you can PM someone (who isn't your secret santa partner, obviously) and get crits from them. Or if you happen to chat with anyone from pixelation or that knows about pixel art, I guess they wouldn't mind helping you either.
But please keep everything secret, so don't go posting your picture around.

Alright people, this is the last weekend before the due date, so make the most of it.
Only got around 1/4 of the gifts so far...
Don't forget the last day to send stuff is this upcoming Tuesday!

Sorry, didn't really have much time to make a banner before the activity  :-X
...But next year I'll try to overhaul some stuff for the activity, perhaps new wrappers, a banner etc etc.

You can always ask the community to make a banner, I'm sure plenty would want to help out :)

Dokozai: Traditionally you're given a month or so to complete a WIP, and if you actually finish it in that time then yeah, you can participate.

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY!

So far I got less than half of the gifts, so hurry up or else  :mean:

Since some of the mods thought the banning was too harsh, this year we are going with strikes just to see how it works, but don't think you'll be safe without making a gift.
If you don't deliver anything by 23rd, you'll automatically get a strike.
Then you'll have a week (meaning your new due date is December 30th) to work on it. If you still don't send anything finished, you'll get your second one.
And then again, you will get another week (Until January 6th), and if you don't deliver anything, you will be BANNED.

As for people with WIPs, PM me your reasons when sending in your gifts, and I'll decide how to act on it. But try to work as much as you can.
(By the way, this is only for people who send WIPs by the 23rd)
 

Oh and if you end up getting a strike, all your "karma cookies" will dissappear aswell.

Wait for everyone to send theirs or what, i've never seen how these secret santas work. I'm guessing, you'll reveal the person who pixeled for us.. and then we smile  :lol:

Anyway, off topic but fitting i think

Happy Xmas everyone at Pixelation.

Noooo what!

Don't do this nonsense with extended deadlines! A deadline is a deadline an' we had a month to come up with something. I'm gonna pretend it's due TODAY and not in a week, or I can totally see myself coming home later today and saying "mwaah, I can totally put this of till tomorrow."

I'll get it done today, I promise!

Well, indeed. You all yet-to-send-gifts people have to think that today is the last day.
Otherwise you'll dissapoint Panda and most of all, you'll make him ANGRY >:0 ... and you don't want to be on his BLACK LIST.

But really, if you can't come up with anything in a month, what are you going to do if you land a job with tight deadlines?

Perhaps next year I should keep the outcomes of not making a gift, secret... maybe you'll get banned... or maybe I'll change your name into SLACKER... or uhm... perhaps I'll add you to a new group called "SECRET SANTA SPOILERS" and your forum skin will be flashing neon pink and green...  >:D

Basically, if you send it before I make the proper Secret Santa thread, you are safe.
But since you don't know when that is, try to make it ASAP.
