Of course I remember to sign up for this the day that sign-up ends. :c

Ugh, what the hell.... the thread says sign-ups closed the 23rd, so I didn't bother posting yesterday, but now the banner says the 24th. :/

Last date to sign up actually was the 23rd, I believe the banner had that pesky little error from the start :P

Ah, my bad; that was done in a hurry. Was intended as 'finished on the 24th', or 'before the the PMs get sent'

Surely though, if you'd read the thread beforehand, there's no problem?

You guys should just let people that didn't make the sign up be able to make and deliver gifts, but they can't can't be assigned someone to give a gift to, and those gifts can be given to those that didn't receive a gift at the end or randomly given.

Just to clarify here, the necessity of the organisation; the allocation of partners, times & dates etc. is motivation and inclusion; everyone is guaranteed a personalised gift that commits to making one.

There is absolutely nothing stopping anyone else making additional art to share, which I'll try to accommodate. There is no monopoly on goodwill here!

Just to verify: a low-poly 3d model/scene would be okay as well, correct? Or would that be considered to be "exotic"?

I'd wager it would be fine and dandy if you're aware of the person you're making the 3D lowpoly gift for likes that kind of stuff. Just be aware that I saw at least one person that said they did not like lowpoly. Generally, I'd say at the very least try to make something that your recipient hasn't listed as a dislike, unless it's being lightheartedly spiteful for the sake of a joke they'd understand.  :P

Also, all the people bummed that they missed signups that still have the interest to participate - it wouldn't hurt to post your wish list anyway and pick a person you would want to make a gift for (keep it a secret though) and who knows, maybe somebody will finish their gift and have the kindness to surprise you with something? It might not be a sovereign match made in the eyes of the almighty randomized pairing algorithm secret santa software Crow uses, but at least you still get to join in on the gift exchange and make somebody else totally surprised and happy.

Good good, PM me if you want it put up with the others.

No-one need wager on low-poly, it's specifically mentioned as kosher in the FAQ, but I'd rather latecomers didn't post up wishlists because there's likely to be confusion and disappointments that way.

4 gifts in already!
