    Can we ban him twice?

    I think if you hold down the ban button, it's super-ban. :)

    I'm sorry for my not-picturepost-failings.
    I don't have a digital camera or a camera phone or anything. D:
    I'll borrow one soon! I promise!

    And hey, I totally posted, there were just no pictures.

    I admit I'm something of a Bad Santa (:winky:) in that I don't follow the thread particularly closely, aside from stalking my [strike]prey[/strike] Santee and making sure to let my Santa know my gift was received and enjoyed with vigor.

    That said, just checking in on the Santa/Bunny situation.

    I've only skimmed a few pages, but it seems we have only a couple outstanding issues that need resolving?

    If so, count me in.

    In case my earlier tirade didn't make my intentions clear, I too would like to be fitted with a secret Easter Bunny suit.

    Because these injustices will not stand. They will not stand, man.

    This is awesome guys. I'm truly happy to see that so many people are willing to step up and be Easter Bunnies, so much so that Easter Bunnies outnumber scorned santees. I think the conclusions to be made about this are obvious:

    ArcSyn and I should receive double the gifting. I'm kidding... mostly.

    I think Quarter-Circle-Back Ban performs a devastating Banouken.

    So why haven't the bans been handed out?

    K7 Avenger has been here as recently as Jan 23 and mcphorks5 on Jan 11th.

    It's not like they haven't seen the PMs or something.

    Because while there are 4 unresponsive Santas, there are still 10 or so without gifts. I don't want to ban them all. Also: I am not a mod, so it's up to them.

    Oh I know you wouldn't ban them personally Doc, although it would be awesome if someone gave you temporary mod privleges for that...

    Anyway, I was just wondering.

    so

    I just got an envelope in the mail with one of these from the art director of Dead Space. It's also signed by a couple other art designers that worked on the game. Quite a nifty little book

    plus it's got some 3D images plus those crazy glasses

    I haven't posted my gift yet because it came so late that I was actually no longer at the mailing address I gave -- had to move back in to the dorms. I'll try to come up with pics and stuff once I actually get to open the gift... it could be a month or longer before I end up back home to do so. :S

    I wasn't involved in the secret santa, but I might be willing to help easter bunny-ing.

    edit: to clarify the secret Easter bunny are basically the people willing to help out those who didn't receive their secret santa gifts, correct? It's not a whole new thing, right?

    Yeah, you're basically the new Santa for the people who were ripped off. You do what their Santa should have done, but didn't... just much later.

    For a second I thought it said Captain K was banned. That would have been pretty meta.



    K7 Avenger blows my mind. Especially considering he got such an awesome gift from Nitsua. Marketplace points, a Family Guy shirt, and fucking Disgaea 3. Unbelievable. Charisma's gift was no joke either. I'm too lazy to look up the others.

    Well, they have the shame of being banned and forbidden to post here at PA.

    It kills me that the two deadbeat Santas that got awesome gifts decided to come in here and share them anyways, act all normal, etc. So odd.

    Anyways, Basticle was my Santa, and I just want to publicly thank him again because he got me the book Day by Day Armageddon and I'm halfway through it and it is fantastic.

    It's written in the format of a daily journal by a Navy recruit as he struggles to survive a worldwide zombie outbreak.

    Awww, and I was worried I didn't do enough. I had a lot of fun for my first time doing this and very much look forward to doing it again in about ten months or so. What's worse about K7 is that he had the nerve to post about what he got in another thread and still not think of his Santee: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/showthread.php?p=8393174

    Yeah, I read what Captain K said and I could have sworn he said that he banned himself too - definitely did a double take and read it right the next time.

    Good luck to those who have (and are) secret Easter Bunnies. Can't wait to see the messages and such from that gift giving goodness.
