    SE++ Secret Satans thread is up. Might want to start lurking there too a bit to warm up your forum stalking skills.

    Signed up. It's been a weird year for me, wherein I had a great job, lost it, have been out of work for the past two months, but am starting a new job next week, and sure, it's always fun to figure out something to send to one of you folks.

    Officially signed up. I'm looking forward to merging with SE+, since over the years I found myself posting there more often.

    On a bummer news, I had to put down my kitty this past weekend. I always loved seeing other people pets in their gift posts and he was always in mine. It'll be sad not continuing that tradition this year.

    Oh man that sucks. I lost a dog a couple months ago, and my other dog is on borrowed time (she's 6 months past the end of corgi life expectancy). I empathize, and I hope you're doing okay.

    Also some of you should give your santa more to work with. Maybe take a gander at the SE++ post to get an understanding of what their hint posts look like.

    Just wanted to note, I had jokingly put on a PS5 on my wishlist because I know some of us are insane. I have since secured a PS5 order from the Best Buy launch day release and I'm picking it up this week. So ignore that wishlist item :razz:

    I have an Amazon wishlist, and I will provide it upon request as I don't believe they can be searched anymore. There are no consoles on my wishlist HOWEVER, anyone who wants to get me a Series X, PS5, or a Quest 2 is welcome to do so, santa or not lol

    Honestly I've decided to wait on the current gen because there are no launch exclusives I care about and I don't feel like competing with scalpers and the people who really want the newest tech. Also the first part of 2021 is filled with Switch gaming for me with Bravely Default 2, Nocturne HD, SMT V, and Rune Factory 5. My Rift S still works just fine for what I need, which is really just Beat Saber and maybe some FitXR(BoxVR). No cord would be nice but I'm of 2 minds about forced Facebook integration, even though I'm still on Facebook (how else will I see pictures of my friend's pets and spam my dogs?).

    Also appreciated: gift cards to Michaels, truck loads of Caron Simply soft yarn, DMC embroidery floss, and 18 count aida or evenweave.

    Or, you know, surprise me. <3

    Secret Santa is always a really good time to go through my Amazon wishlist and think to myself "why did I put this on here again?"

    Anyway Hints:
    Amazon Wishlist that I've updated: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/14JQIXEMXJTT5?ref_=wl_share

    We have Three Switches in the house (two regular and one lite) and we're pretty well stocked with games. Pretty much a Nintendo household but we do have a PS2 and 3, as well as PS Classic mini console. I've got both Nintendo Mini consoles.

    Here's a dropbox link to my Nintendo Spreadsheet tracking my collection. I think it's up to date:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/69whex13wku1rrd/Nintendo_Database.xls?dl=0

    We have a four year old son that loves Animal Crossing and Lego Marvel 2.

    Shirt sizes:
    Me: 3XL
    my wife: L
    my son: 4T

    More hints as i think of them but that should get you started. Happy Stalking!

    I'm gonna start with the hints i messaged to the santa union then will try to fill it out a bit more later
    i have a few amazon lists if you need any extra help. I have to prune and update and you know, promise to take care of by the time assignments are sent out. this share should show multiple lists. i kind of have them separated as misc/books/games/graphic novels so if you don't see multiple options and need to access them let me know. i don't think you can see the other lists on mobile but i did test it and it seemed to work with my partner, though i've now dangerously revealed my wishlist existence to them. If it's feasible to use that for ideas but do the actual shopping at local or indy business i'd consider that a gift too just because they're bad.
    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/21ICKEO8SKIS9?ref_=wl_share

    for starter hints though, I'm a designer and i live in Chicago.
    I'm always into gifts that represent your local culture/foods/drinks/etc whatever you want to share from where you are. If you have a chance to shop local i'm all about whatever that translates into as a gift.
    on the off chance you're in Japan, I grew up there so i'd love local type gifts from there that might remind me of that.
    I'm generally into designery arty gifts, though I'm less the "wow ampersands are so cool" kind of designer and more the "these systems you designed are fundamentally fucked and getting people killed and i'm gonna yell at you about it" kind.
    My posting habits are weird I know. I'm frequently just in the handful of threads for whatever game/media i'm currently engaging in.
    I always liked reading but COVID life has really gotten me back into it this past year and I've been making a concerted effort to read more by non "generic cishet white guys." For example i just burned through NK Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy in a weekend and excited to read more by her.
    I worked in a boardgame store for a year and that kind of got me into the tabletop hobby though it's been a bad year for group gatherings to play games.
    Gaming wise, I just built a new beefy computer (nominally for design work but who's gonna judge) for the first time since 2012 so I'm excited to get into a lot of the graphical powerhouse kind of games i've missed (A PA member already gifted my cyberpunk). I also got godfall, ac valhalla, and wow shadowlands as promos on my GPU so I guess i've got the big holiday games covered this year?
    I'm also initiatefailure on steam and spend time in the adventure team chat, probably moreso as we get closer to the holidays.
    I also have a switch and PS4. PS store just removed wishlists and i don't think switch is shareable but i'll try to fill out the game section on the amazon list to give some idea on what i might be in to. I just started tales of vesperia on switch and am hooked. I haven't done much ps4 gaming lately, mostly i still have to finish FF7R and a lot of neglected ps+ titles. I'm also into any switch games i can co-op on the couch with my partner.
    I'm looking to get a ps5/Index but that kind of depends on when i get a job again (covid job market is ugh).
    I can probably conscript my partner into helping you if you need it. the easiest way is likely through her twitter (the username is in the santa PM) and I'm just gonna be upfront that finding me on twitter won't so much help you with gift finding as it will just be a bunch of me yelling about how bad the US conservative party is and retweeting much smarter people on the topic.
    Feel free to ask anything else with whatever level of sneakiness you prefer. i'll also likely be a little more active on the board in the near future both as the holidays near and my current gig just ended so I'll have time.
    2020 is rough and i get that. i'm very into experiences much more than things especially now. I'd just be excited for you to share a part of yourself. good santa hunting

    Amazon not allowing lookups kinda ruins the fun of stalking, so I guess here's a bit hint post. More necessary I suppose this year than previously as I haven't been as active.
    Board Games/Accessories: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3JOIM9GSFBFLH?ref_=wl_share

    Comics: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/T75H0OKO1SYQ?ref_=wl_share

    I haven't updated them in a while. I'll try to soon.
    I do not have or have preordered or plan to get either of the new consoles. That's just not in the cards. We've got a Switch the kids play the most.
    I work IT, enjoy trinkets, fiddlers, and geeky stuff.
    I wear a size L shirt.
    I enjoy nearly all forms of alcohol. Most recently dabbling into bourbons. My go-to chill drink is just a good ale, like a scottish or irish red. I do not care for IPAs.

    Ah - didn't realize that amazon wasn't letting people search. If my Santa needs/wants to see it:
    We have a PS4, XB1, Switch, and a PC that is running fairly recent games well (I'm playing Gears Tactics on it right now). No PS5 or Series X yet.
    Amazon list
    Kindle books

    Additional Hints:
    I just got back from a year in Korea, away from my family. No mid tour due to COVID, so I'm spending as much time with them in person as possible. We love interesting and unique board games. I own Gloomhaven and Jaws of the Lion, we love Dixit and play a lot of Jackbox (1-6 party packs owned so far). I'm a Playstation guy, but I have money socked away for a PS5 whenever they resurface on the market again, so don't worry about that.

    Let's see, nerd-filiations: Ravenclaw, Abzan/Mardu, Minmatar, uh... I'll add more if I think of them.

    Santa, quick tip, if you see any games on my Steam wishlist that have been on the Humble monthly at any point since Feb 2016 I already have it, I just haven't redeemed the key yet.

    Additional tips:
    I'm really not fussy or particular. I've missed most of the gaming zeitgeist since 2015 when I started grad school and a new career, but I now have a Switch and a PS5. I don't game on the PC anymore, I spend way too much time working at home staring at a computer screen to keep doing that in an office chair.

    Otherwise I love books, often reading history and philosophy but not at all limited to that. My Amazon wishlist is rather full of an assortment of items for that and lots of other stuff. I'll go sort it while I'm thinking about it.

    I also used to be big into road cycling, but now primarily run, and am about to complete my third half-marathon race of the year.

    Also, my three cats are a massive part of my life. Two of them are sitting on my lap as I write this.

    Finally, I like discovering new things and learning about other cultures, so feel free to impart something to me that tells me more about you!

    I'm pretty sad to sit this one out but there's been far too much bad news that I couldn't comfortably take part in this, sadly. That said, I'll frequent the thread for the wholesome content I'm lacking irl!

  • HandkorHandkor Registered User regular
    I went trough my amazon wishlist and most items are no longer sold or available. This list is now more a guide for themes than a direct shopping list.

  • KyouguKyougu Registered User regular
    Here's additional info/tips. Honestly I'm up for whatever thing Santa may think I would enjoy, but if you need hints, here it is. Honestly I'm always grateful for anything I receive, and in my 10+ years of doing this I never been disappointed/
    PS4 is my only gaming system. I played pretty much all the big releases for it but there's still a lot of smaller games I probably ignored.

    I enjoy all sorts of craft beers and my favorite styles are stouts and barrel age.

    I have a brand new kitten.

    I'm really into the outdoors. My favorite activities are climbing, hiking/backpacking and running.

    Trying to cook more.

    I'm big into comics, with Spider-Man and Superman being my favorites. I enjoy some anime too, mostly shonen stuff like Naruto/Bleach/Demon Slayer/MHA/DBZ

    I have a kindle and read all sorts of books. Even lead a book club.

    I'm pretty open and easily searchable in social media. Twitter: El_Chiclets, IG: Brownchiclets, FB: Omar Acoska

    I think that's it.

    Also, I just put up some Christmas lights on my house and some snowmen in my yard.

    I think this is the earliest I’ve ever gotten Christmas stuff set up, since I usually have a “never before Thanksgiving” rule.

    This year just needed it a little earlier than usual.

    Yeah my partner and I put up the tree a week and a half ago. Partly because we want our newest kitten to get used to it before ornaments go up, and partly because 2020 has been rough and we just need some damn cheer in our house.

    I don't put up a tree, but I have a nice pre-lit wreath that I hang above the fireplace and I put tomte on the hearth. I started buying a new buddy to join the collection every year. It's a recent tradition but I look forward to the time when they take over my home for a month.

    Hi Y'all!

    Some of you may know me, Some of you may not!

    I am the friendly SE++ Secret Satans Imp!

    I help the host Brolo with the sending things (and helping Radiation this year now too)

    I am also a good go-between for asking your target a question, but helping you remain anonymous!

    Just shoot me a PM with who you're trying to find out more about and as soon as I can I'll get their answer back to you.

    I am in New Zealand, so there's a chance that I might be sleeping when you message, but if you can wait until I wake up, I'll get your answer as soon as I can.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know more of you! And to help bring joy and cheer and fluffy things, or not, everywhere!

    Happy Hunting, y'all!

    Should be fine with what you sent. That should get passed to your santa. But if you want to make their job easier you can certainly post more hints or whatever.

    OH! Also!
    I'm sorry if you get matched with someone you've had before.
    Also also, there are 3 separate chains of gifting. I know SE usually detectives to see how the chains work. I feel like maybe I did this last year? I'm not sure, but essentially A gifts B, B gifts C, C gifts A. But we'll have 3 of those chains.

    Edit: Oh hey, I can edit instead of posting a bunch.
    You can message me, or lovelyahava, or Brolo, or Proxy the Elf with any questions you want passed on to your Santee.
