Secret Santa 2017 Sign-Up

on: November 14, 2017, 10:16:18 pm
Sorry atnas, I'm stealing your post. Thanks yaomon for the santa!

Click and retweet to spread the word!

You don't know what's going on? Here it is: You sign up for this, get a random partner assigned to you, and you make a pixel art gift for them. In turn, somebody else (you don't know who) will be making a gift for you! Gifts will be revealed on Christmas.

Take a look at a previous year's Secret Santa here: 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009 - 2008 - 2007 - 2006 - 2005

Taking Part
  • Only sign up if you're sure that you'll be to able to complete your gift, by checking the dates below. If you don't complete your gift you'll be banned from next year's Secret Santa and make someone very sad. :'(
  • Provide some indication of your likes/dislikes: this is important! You can be as specific or broad as you like, but be aware this is all your Santa has to go by if they don't know you!
  • You'll receive your partner's name via private message (PM).
  • When you've finished your gift, send it to me by PM; not in the thread here. That would not be secret. :P
  • Pika and EdJr may NOT participate this year because they failed to submit a gift on time last year. Do not let this be you! >:D
  • Here's a sample post if you are somehow still lost. ::) You can format however you want, however please include "I'm in!" or something similar in your post.
    Quote from:  mr example
    Count me in!
    I like:
    amputees, sneakers, luigi, BDSM, and rap music
    I do NOT like:
    Star Wars, flowers, children, and spiders.
    Thanks! again no spiders

Important Dates
  • November 14th~22nd - Sign-ups
  • November 23rd - A PM with your partner's name will be sent out to you; keep it a secret and start early!
  • November 23rd~December 23rd - You have a whole month to make a beautiful pixel present!
  • December 23rd - Last day to send in your gift!
  • December 24th - Very last chance! DON'T make our lives harder if you can avoid it, finish before this time period. Send me your WIP if you aren't finished.
  • December 25th - PRESENTS!!!!
PM me if you're confused about anything or have any questions to ask after consulting the FAQ below.

SantA's Crow's Help desk

What kind of gift do I make?
-Anything you want, just so long as it involves pixel art. Tailor it to your partner's listed interests, or towards them and their work if you are familiar. Any subject you think will be well received is fair game. You can make them a mockup, animation, sprites, textured low poly models; you name it! If you're worried about time, don't overly complicate things, relax and do what you do best.

But I'm quite likely to be embroiled in some sort of ~festive revelry~ around the end of December; can I still take part?
-You can send your gift in as early as you like. The 23rd is the deadline, but submissions will be accepted from the time you receive your partner's name via PM, up until the 23rd. It's not fun to try and rush this stuff leading up to Christmas, getting it done with time to spare is highly recommended ;)

I'm not going to manage finishing my present in time, will I still get a strike?
-WIPs will be OK temporarily... It's better to have your WIP under the tree than nothing, but please finish quickly afterwards to avoid consequences. If you know you won't be able to finish, for whatever reason, let me know ASAP so that something else can be sorted out for your partner.

I think making a present for so-and-so would be really fun, I wish I was their Santa!
-If you finish your present early, you're more than welcome to make gifts for multiple people. Spread the holiday cheer! But concentrate on your partner first. :y:

Gift Wrap!

When you send me the PM with your gift, designate one of these wrappings (A1, B5, etc.) This gift wrapping is what your Secret Santa will click on under the tree to receive your gift.

Alternatively: Make a custom wrapping for your gift; in this way you can have a bit of fun teasing the contents within. Just PM it along with your gift. Here are a few from previous years... with a link to their gifts, for ideas. (you can't use these! come up with your own!)

Haven't done this in a while, but I want in.

I'm a simple man, I like things that are cheeky, freaky, squeaky, and sneaky.

Count me in!

Likes - Destruction, DragonBall Z, Heroism, Futuristic and Other-worldly things, Knowledge, Self Development, Beautiful women(not those chibi or anime big unnatural boobed ones), deep talks, Meditation and immersing myself into the task, partying, travelling and challenges and rap music.

Dislikes - Blabbering, junk food, bad reasoning, aliens and gods acting like humans, old traditional things(not too much), programming, staying at one place.

Put too much detail there I guess. Perhaps it'll be insightful instead of distasteful haha

Hi! Iím Kiri! Right now Iím really into the anime Mob Psycho 100, but Iím also a fan of carnivorous plants, ghosts, ravens and crows, and generalized body horror. I do not like gore or vulgarity, though.

I look forward to participating!
