Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Signed up! I really need to post more on the forums, but my PhD is so nearly finished. I just need to weather the storm of BF3 being released. I also have a bunch of steam games I need to give away at some point.

    Time to break out the Santa hat!

    For those of you who were in the GnT SS 2008 (and haven't changed your avatar since), you can check if I still have a hatted avatar in my photobucket album.

    I'm going to shove some motherfucking cheer down somebody's throat.

    Signed on the dotted line, let's do this people!

    ... Can't wait for the Christmas hat avatars to start popping up too.

    Signed. It's so nice to get something in the mail that isn't a bill, a credit card app or an envelope of coupons that I'll never use.

    I've got some old christmas avatars too, if you don't see yours in Arc's bucket.

    Bah, apparently I've been beaten by some. I need to find a different hat for some people though because this one is curved down and I need one curved up for perspective. Hypatia's is particularly bad. Going to redo that one.

    Excellent! This will be my third year. I usually lurk the PA forums and don't post too much but I absolutely love this time of the year and the sense of community. I also try to post more around this time so my Santa has something to stalk!

    If anyone could Santa-hat my avatar up I'd appreciate it as well!

    Signed up, even though I really hope I don't get an international Santee. My wallet won't be able to take it.

    In, in, like Huckleberry Finn!
    I'm a virgin in such matters (first Secret Santa EVER, not just in PA). Is goat dung a good gift for total strangers? Even if they are trained in the dark arts of internet stalking?
    How about some stale chicken legs? I think I have a few left over...

    Looking for tips & suggestions? Clicky-clicky!
    So, need some general pointers for your lovely Santee from an exotic faraway place? Start here!

    BUT ONLY if your stalking skills are poor or you're out of ideas. I mean, Secret Santa is about getting crazy gifts you would never get by yourself, right? Surprise me, getting a laugh out of weird stuff is the point here!

    Also note that getting me anything more than $50 will make me VERY EMBARRASSED. No, seriously. This isn't some reverse-psychology thing to make you feel guilty. Symbolic gifts people, no consoles or other crazy stuff please.

    Wishlist follows! Be warned!
    So, I've just moved into my new home. Being a single bachelor, I would LOVE any geeky ornaments! Posters, plushies, figurines, all welcome. LEGO too!

    I'm a big foodie too, so FEED ME! Send me any weird local tastes like maple syrup, hot sauces, stuff that I'll cook and make my friends ask "WTF am I eating here?" And chocolate! Send me your local cocoa-based confectionaries!

    (No Marmite please. I've tried it. Ew.)

    Games? PC only, I don't have any consoles or handhelds, so head over to my Steam profile and see what's on sale! (Don't you dare gift me anything that isn't on sale.) Just leave out any multi-player or MMO games and I'll be more than happy.

    Books? Dead-tree stuff only, I love stacking bounded paper things on my IKEA, first thing I bought for the house was three bookshelves for half my books. ANY subject is welcome, except zombies and comics. Here's my Amazon wishlist if you're unsure, but really, I'm an obsessive reader, I'll read ANYTHING, even bleach bottle labels.

    If you're thinking about clothes, I'm a size L (Medium for US stuff... yeah, Yanks are "big-boned").
    Finally, delivery details. Public mail is preferable (like USPS or Royal Mail), otherwise UPS and DHL is OK but you might need to send your stuff to my work address and provide my phone number for confirmation. Have Proxy the Elf ask me for details!

    That's it I guess! Thanks Santa, I promise I'll make a fantastic GIFT GET post once your stuff arrives! Merry Christmas!

    Dear sweet Christmasy friends,

    PROXY IS HERE!
    I should like to make it known to my friendly Christmas Donkeys that, should they require assistance, Proxy is here to help!
    Proxy is good at pressing keys such as: Control. C. V. And sometimes backspace.
    Also, Proxy loves spreading cheer around the world! Mostly through interweb whispers...

    So if anyone needs, for example, a message sent to or question asked of their Santee, but certainly does not wish their identity known, Proxy is the Elf for them!
    All you need to do is PM proxy!
    Include the Santee's OFFICIAL forum name first, then maybe a couple carriage returns, and then the message you wish them sent.
    USE CAREFUL LANGUAGE, THIS MESSAGE WILL BE COPY AND PASTED!! (Proxy does look these things over, so if you maybe forgot something Proxy may help you out a bit)
    Proxy will send a PM to your Santee and then reply you a PM when a response is received!
    So easy!

    Here's wishing everyone an OVER 9000 CHRISTMAS!!!

    PS- Hypatia, feel free to add such cheer to the OP if there is room. :)

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!
    Spreading Christmas cheer across the forums since 2009!

    I love the stalking part of this! I know it's probably wrong to enjoy it, and it may well make me sound weird, but it's such good fun, specially when I can track down their friends and family through FB and get really good ideas off them! Roll on November when I can start!
