    Okay Just signed up...

    I am a causal lurker on the PA guilds but I am always on this time of year and around til pax east.
    Summers get stupid busy for me and well lead up to pax prime hurts to much to be on pa forums.

    If this excludes me that's okay...

    but if not:
    Santa,

    I have a steam account (seamint) and am fully play gw2 and in my little spare time pokemon b/w2
    I love playing board games with my friends and would like maybe a copy of galaxy trucker or space alert
    or even some wall art, cookies or something on my steam wishlist.

    Thank you

    Mint on

    Sent my application. I felt bad about not giving my Santee as much as I wanted to last year, so this time I prepared in advance. You're in for a treat, mystery Santee!

    I hope you like beef jerky, bleach, and books!

    I'm excited to see quite a few newcomers and returning participants following an absence this year. My Santee from my first year was a first-timer that didn't show up again. I had a first-timer last year too, but he still has time to sign up.

    Mmmmm......beef jerky....

    I was actually nervous to try to participate, as I've been a member here for 2 years but have never really posted, because I find it hard to....unshy myself into posting places. But I was added to the participants list so yay lol.

    I used to be (more of) a Lurker until I joined the 2010 Secret Santa. This thread is pretty much always ultra-friendly and constantly radiating Christmas Cheer, so it's an unintimidating place to get your posting legs.

    If you're worried about your Santa not having much to go on, a lot of people make hint posts with their general interests after Santees are sent out.

    Board games are cool and something I'd like to get into, but at the same time none of my friends play them so they probably wouldn't be very fun for me.

    I'm hoping that in the near future the wee one gets to where he sleeps through the night dependably and we can restart nerd night at my house for friends and I.
    Fingers crossed!

    Just signed up after watching The Lookout and not going to bed even though I have work in the morning.

    Happy hunting!

    I actually botched an order I placed early in the year, so if the stars align right I can really shower my Santee with stuff. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to hit up other Santas to see if I can't slip myself into a little holiday Ménage à Trois.

    What happens if there is an odd number of participants? Who joins in/sits out?

    I don't think it's possible to have an odd man out. Imagine it as a conga line where the first person in the line grabs on to the last person to make a circle. The person you're hanging on to is your Santee and the one hanging on to you is your Santa.

    If you ever peek in on SE++'s Secret Santa, someone usually keeps track of the gift chains. It's pretty neat to see, especially when complete circles start forming.

    Edit: dumb analogy replaced with a slightly more dumb analogy.

    Ok, got permission from the parents to use their address for the secret santa thing, so I'm in.
    Let the jolliness commence.

    Wouldn't happen Cool, you're not assigned Secret Santas as partners, otherwise it would spoil the whole "Secret" part. I know one year names were sorted into groups of three with each person gifting the next in their group (A gifted B gifted C gifted A).

    Wow, I absolutely love PA Secret Santas. I know I'm not as active as I was 7 years ago, but I'm totally in. I can't miss out on this.

    I friggin love when the forum comes together like this. You people are all amazing.

    Was it last year or the year before when the randomizer ended up grouping everyone into little gifting trios?

    GREETINGS CHRISTMAS DONKEYS!!

    I am Proxy.

    The elf.

    As things are about to get started, I would like to let everyone know that I'm here for you. Well, I mean, I'll do what I can...
    I have been created with the sole purpose of learning important personal information about santees. To [strike]sell on the interwebs[/strike] help santas be better.

    I expect things may get busy with so many people participating, but I will do my best to accommodate everyones needs in the information gathering.

    So feel free to PM me when you have your assignment and I shall find the information you seek. By asking your santee.
    Please use the following format for ease of prox...ing?

    SUBJECT LINE: forum name (please be exact so I can copy and paste)

    MESSAGE BOX:
    Insert your question here. It will be copy/pasted, so pretend like you're asking them yourself (without revealing your identity).

    Please ensure that you replace the "forum name" with their handle on PA forums exactly, so I can easily copy and paste it to get your question out.
    HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!

    Or was that longer ago than I'm remembering?

    Okay! As far as I know I have updated the OP with everyone who has sent me a PM so far.

    * If you don't see your name, I might have missed your PM, please ping me again to remind me (although I might catch you on my sweep after sign-ups close)
    * The list will not be vetted until after sign-ups are closed, meaning some people might get removed from the list if they have a history of deadbeating, signed up for the forums only a month ago, etc.

    @Hypatia What about officially endorsing @Proxy the Elf in the OP this year? If Proxy is down with that, anyway.

    Last year it seemed like there were a lot of people who didn't know about his services until they asked for a volunteer proxy in the thread.
