Phew! Finally finished and sent mine. For a moment there, I was panicking, thinking I'd bitten off more than I could chew :lol:

Good luck to those still finishing their pieces! :y:

Well mine's in. I'm afraid still a WIP though as I've been without a computer most of this week.  I'll keep you posted and u/l the finished version asap.

Merry pixmas  ;)

eck I don't think that'd stand, the point is so its ready for christmas, you had the deadline so handing it in late is 1. unfair on your partner (who may of worked their ars of for their gift to someone else) and 2. gives the mods (Is it Panda organising this) more work. But I suppose you should hand in atleast something for the deadline because its deffo the thought that counts, people here are on all levels of artistic skill and im sure whether finished or not your partner would be greatful

pixelgnome, merry pixmas to you too  :P

i prepose that those that don't hand theirs in on time get another week to explain their lack of submission and perhaps turn it in?

I will not give any extra time to those that don't come up with a gift because:
1. You signed up knowing the deadline was on the 23rd of December.
2. You can send in WIPs.
3. It is not my job to listen to all the excuses and whatever crap and take care of it for an extended time, just because you didn't plan your time properly.
4. You had 23 days. If you couldn't spare a couple of hours on this, then you shouldn't have signed up at all.

I won't give any second chances. Seeing how it went last year, it is worthless.
Anyone without a gift by the last time I check the PMs (which will be on the 24th's morning, as stated above), will be banned straight away.

there's no point extending the deadline:

anyone who misses the deadline is probably
1 - unaware of it because they barely check the forums anymore (and won't be around any time in the next week to notice) - this was me last year and I didn't know until January that I'd even been banned
2 - unaware of it because they never cared (and aren't going to in the next week)
3 - willfully ignoring it because they are douchebags (and are still going to be next week)
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Mine was pretty easy, thank god. My gift-ee didn't have many likes to start with.

Ok, mine is in.

Managed to pull it together at least. Man I'm tired.... Looking forward to seeing what the rest of you've cooked up.

25 people still to submit something, although by the sounds of it a lot of people are probably finishing off today.

Hopefully...otherwise, this place would be lot more lonelier, with some fairly great artists out of the picture.
my back hurts...
