(Mully continues the tradition of making awesome art for this, so thanks a million mully. <3!)

This is where you do the sign-ups.
There will be another thread later where people can talk about what to get, or what not to get, or go off-topic so delightfully as we tend to do.

THE RULES HAVE CHANGED/BEEN EXPANDED THIS YEAR.
So read them all before you try to sign up.


Rules:

1. I will NOT go back and email you and/or correct it if you do it wrong. I don't have time for that. So save us both some time and do it right.
If I update the thread and you sent you email a full day earlier... you probably messed up. So do it again. Please DO NOT apologize in the email; that makes it harder to send when I'm matching.
It's fine, just trying to keep it efficient. If you really need to tell me something, do it via PM.

2. There is no minimum spending amount and no maximum spending amount. Just because you spend $500 on your person, doesn't mean you'll get the same amount spent on you. And some people make handmade shit because they're poor, talented, or some combination.

3. Wishlists or suggestions ARE REQUIRED this year. If you feel you are a regular and people should know what you like; awesome. You still can't sign up without this info.

4. International people are allowed. There is a field now in the sign up process for if you REALLY are strapped for cash, but I still cannot 100% guarantee you will not get someone in Australia, New Zealand, or lesser Uranus. IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THIS POSSIBILITY, DO NOT SIGN UP. Note: Canada is NOT considered "international."

5. If nobody knows who you are, you probably will not be allowed to sign up. This is to cut down on the number of deadbeat Satans.

6. People who do not send gifts will be banned. Seriously. Not you "might" get banned, you 100% WILL get banned. Lewie P's Stepdad is tired of people whining about not getting shit, so if you sign up, you better fucking send something. Excuses are not accepted. I don't care if you are deployed to Afghanistan, lose your job, or are in love with Jesus; IF YOU SIGN UP AND DON'T SEND YOU WILL BE BANNED. The deadline to receive gifts is JANUARY 22, 2012. That's a full 4 WEEKS after Xmas. If you can't get it in by then at the latest, don't be a silly goose (or worse) -- don't sign up.


7. DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT WHAT YOU GOT. But while a joke gift is ok, sending only terrible gifts just to be terrible is not encouraged. I.E. Don't do it.

6. Do NOT send NSFW gifts unless they specifically OK it in the info sent to you when you get your person.


How Do I Sign Up, Boss?
Send an email to mailto:secretsatantwo@gmail.com.

THIS EMAIL MUST HAVE YOUR FORUM USERNAME AS A SUBJECT. DO NOT TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT, WE MIGHT HAVE A THREAD ABOUT THAT! IF WE DO NOT, THEN JUST LINK A WISHLIST IN YOUR SIG.
The email MUST CONTAIN:

Your Name (YOUR REAL ONE. NO ALIASES. NO ABBREVIATIONS. If you aren't comfortable with that, don't sign up.)
Your full Address (INCLUDING country)
Your Preference in Sending Internationally: YES / NO ( I AM A POOR GOOSE BUT I WILL SUCK IT UP IF I GET PAIRED WITH ONE)
If NSFW gifts are OK or NOT
Link to your amazon/foodzie/etsy/etc wishlist OR a few items here**


** Also acceptable: A link to a post containing description of things you do/don't want, T-shirt size, etc.




IF YOUR EMAIL DOES NOT HAVE YOUR FORUM USERNAME AS THE SUBJECT, I WILL THROW IT AWAY, AND I WILL NOT TELL YOU I HAVE DONE SO. IF YOUR NAME DOES NOT APPEAR ON THIS SIGN-UP LIST, ASSUME YOU HAVE FUCKED UP SOMEWHERE.

Signups in this thread WILL NOT BE COUNTED AND YOU WILL BE THOROUGHLY MOCKED.
Or ignored. Perhaps both Probably both..


THE SIGN UP DEADLINE IS 12:01 AM, PST, NOVEMBER 6TH. THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSES.


The traditional.... Framling's Fantastic FAQ For Foisting Freebies On Friendly Forumers!

Q: My person lives outside the country! What if shipping takes a long time?
A: Oh shit! Better plan ahead!

Q: I got evicted from my apartment! I can't afford a present right now.
A: Shouldn't have signed up, Poordilocks!

    Amazon wishlist is in my sig. Ill be updating it in the coming weeks.

    Shirt Size: M->L (I'm right in between. Large for American Apparel/Designer/Graphic type shirts and Medium for most regular/bulk/retail shirts.)

    I like comic books(I interned at Marvel Comics in NYC).

    I like Fighting Games(Playing mostly Street Fighter 4 and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 right now).

    I have played D&D every Sunday for the past 4 years.

    I have a Playstation 3, a laptop that is a few years old(so brand new new games don't really run well on it), and a PSP.

    Click for Steam Profile

    People on the forums to talk to if you are really really out of ideas:

    3. Wishlists or suggestions ARE REQUIRED this year. If you feel you are a regular and people should know what you like; awesome. You still can't sign up without this info.

    I was going to back out of it this year because of this very reason, but now I feel like I can succeed.

    Still gotta thing about it because of financial reasons though.

    Do it.

    Last year was my first time, I did both this one and the G&T one.

    Among the things I received was a pink DS and a Shake Weight.

    Knowing that there are people on this forum who are that giving and nice, and giving and being nice to others without expecting or needing or maybe even wanting anything in return is always a great feeling, at least for me. And the fact that there were people I received as Secret Satans/Santas who actually gave nicer, way more expensive things than I did really instilled my confidence in my always-present belief that there is good around.

    TL;DR Do it. Definitely.

    Yeah, I'm like dead broke but I haven't done this since like...2007? I like giving people gifts so I'm gonna sign up

    and while the last time I did this I was a complete shithead and complained about my gift because it didn't seem relevant to my interests (at the time), I'm pretty much the complete opposite now. I'll make a suggestions post since it's required, but I'm more into seeing what people come up with instead of giving a shopping list

    The Solid Saints auction that Mully did a while ago, or the thing where we give to people who get deadbeats for this?

    Solid Saints was the auction
    Secret Saints was sending gifts to people that couldn't afford to do Secret Satans (or in some cases, had babies and stuff)

    I was a complete ass last year. I bitched because I didn't get my gift until almost February.

    But then when I got it from an amazing individual ( @Tonkka <3 ), the gifts in there were nicer than I could have ever imagined. (I'm typing this with my Shake Weight and Invictus and Slap Shot DVDs beside me btw <3 <3 ) And it just made me feel so bad

    I won't bitch at all this year.

    And I don't want to give a shopping list either, but then I would feel bad if somebody new got me and really didn't know enough about me to choose something and that person felt bad for possibly getting me something I wouldn't like.

    Which I promise Satan, whatever you get me I will love with all of my heart <3

    I'm doing this, even though I'll most definitely be broke afterwards.

    The fact that I will have put a smile on a stranger's face will get me through the tenure at the poorhouse.

    Suggestions:

    T-shirt size is S/M (if it runs small, go medium and vice verse)
    I love comic stuff (primarily DC), but I already read/have read a ton of comics so I wouldn't say go for actual books. Comic related merchandise is cool, though
    I love beagles
    Movies and music and basically anything you love and would want to share is cool
    A decent paying job would be nice

    here's an Amazon wishlist, in case you're from outside the US and this makes it cheaper for shipping

    Don't feel obligated to get something from there, though. I love seeing what people come up with for presents

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2Z4WD963SIP5L

    (there are some ridiculous and/or expensive things on there but don't worry about that)

    (unless you're Mr. Moneybags)

    (then just give me your phone number)

    If you need help, or want to double check that I don't have something, talk to @Raijin Quickfoot

    edit: Also I have no problem at all with used stuff. Always save yourself some money

    Hello Satan! I am a pretty regular guy and just about anything pleases me! No pressure! I wear a medium sized t-shirt if that's relevant.

    As for my tastes, well, I am a nerd I guess. I often think the things on ThinkGeek are cool, but wouldn't buy them for myself. I like to read good sci fi novels! Some of my favorites include Anathem by Neal Stephenson, Contact by Carl Sagan, The Light of Other Days by Arthur C Clarke, and the Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. I like media in general so that is always a good route; you know, movies, games, etc. As for games, I have a pretty respectable gaming PC, an old PS2 and GameCube that get basically no use, and a DS in a similar situation. But maybe if you gave me something cool for them I would use them again!

    If you want specific things, um, I'm thinking about becoming a pretentious elitist and getting one of those fancy safety razors people are always ranting about, so some kit in that vein might be useful. Umm....I can always use more high intensity glowsticks (I prefer the Revolutions from extremeglow.com). If you feel like spending a lot of money on me, I've been thinking about getting a mechanical keyboard because I hear they are more better or whatever. Also those Vibram fivefinger running shoes that make you look like a Special Soul to help me get back into running (I wear a 10.5 mens US).

    These are all just ideas! I will appreciate anything you get me, it really is the thought that counts. If you happen to be one of those cool forumers who can make stuff by hand I am so totally down with that. Also consumable items, you know, foreign candy, fine liquor, baked goods, those weird berries that make sour stuff taste sweet, exotic drugs, etc. Anyway, basically if something shows up at my house having come from The Internet I will be extremely pleased! Have a good holiday season!
