It's October... when the demons and devils come out to play, we think of giving
Yes... that's right....
(Placeholder image until I can edit it later... deal with it!)
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.
But if you want to make a post about what you want here, FEEL FREE!
We have rules and not reading or knowing them is no excuse!
So read them all before you try to sign up.
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. Tube 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, 2013. 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.
8. Do NOT send NSFW gifts unless they specifically OK it in the info sent to you when you get your person.
9. Added 10/31/12: You are STRONGLY urged to post ideas in your signup email. So if people want to make their wishlist / suggestions posts here and link from their sig, feel free.
If you don't make a post before matches go out and also didn't include suggestions, YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM SECRET SATANS.
How Do I Sign Up, Boss?
NEW NEW NEW:
You send a PM to @Neville
If you send it to one of them only, you lose.
If you try to send an email, you lose.
If you have any
excuse/reason/etc that you failed to meet it, you lose.
We will make no exceptions after the new deadline.
Details of the PM MUST CONTAIN:
1. Your Name (YOUR REAL ONE. NO ALIASES. NO ABBREVIATIONS. If you aren't comfortable with that, don't sign up.)
2. Your full Address (INCLUDING country)
3. Your Preference in Sending Internationally: YES / NO ( I AM A POOR GOOSE BUT I WILL SUCK IT UP IF I GET PAIRED WITH ONE)
4. If NSFW gifts are OK or NOT
5. Link to your amazon/foodzie/etsy/etc wishlist OR a few items here OR a link to a wishlist post.
If you do not include one of those 3 ways of giving SOME idea of gifts you'd like, YOU WILL NOT GET IN.
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 EXTENDED TO 12:01 AM, PST, NOVEMBER 14TH. THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSES AFTER THIS..
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!
Q: I don't want to give suggestions, because I <goose reasoning that I don't care about>
A: Then don't sign up. Because if you don't give suggestions, YOU WILL BE REMOVED from Secret Satans.
Nobody is too important to not give any suggestions at all, unless you work for PA. And even then, suggestions would be lovely.
