    I saw this idea on another forum I frequent, and figured it would be something different.


    This is kind of like a secret santa deal, except you get to choose if your annoynomus or not. Everyone knows times are tough, so there is a 20 dollar amount set. By signing up for this, you are taking a chance you might spend more on the person then you send to, but thats not what this is about. Just an extra present under the tree from fellow Tacoma enthusiests(sp). The only thing is, once committed you MUST send a gift, since you will need to give a name and address to mail to/from.

    Lots of people on the other forum are asking for members with children, to send them an extra something

    RULES/REGULATIONS:

    Tigerfan and Myself are the people to pm your name/address and handle to. Please pm only one of us, so we do not have duplicates. Not fully complying results in non entry.

    *YOU must do the legwork once pm'd.
    *You must send a gift to the name you get, no exceptions EX: dont see eye to eye.
    *Once on THE LIST, you must send something REASONABLE to the name pm'd to you.
    *Names will begin being pm'd out after Nov.15th, plenty of time to get a gift for Christmas.
    *You may be sending a gift out of the Country..Keep the shipping/stamp costs in mind.
    *If theres not enough intrest, this will be closed. Its up to the membership here to make it happen. 25-50 members by the end of the month sounds fair. Thats 1.5 weeks to decide.
    *We will do our best to make it fair and not have anyone in the same state get each other as gifters/giftees.
    *Tigerfan,myself,and or the mods here on tacomaworld take no responsibility if someone flakes and dosent send a gift. We will do our best to fix it since we will have there names/addresses.
    *As long as your on the committ list with full name AND handle, you will send AND recieve a gift.
    *It would be nice to see once Christmas comes around, to see what everyone got..Please dont post names or handles of who sent you what.
    *If possible, keep proof of item being sent in case its lost/stolen in the mail. At the very least, we can prove that it was sent out.
    *Once Nov 15th, 10pm EST is here, you can not back out of your commitment, to be fair.
    *If you choose to send your gift in a box, its your choice to wrap it or not. Reccomendation is to not send it in the box it came in, as to ruin the suprise.
    $20 CAP on gifts. If you feel like doing more, your more then welcome, but don't expect the same amount in a gift back..

    Just thinking of guidelines here, but I know personally I havent seen eye to eye with a few members here, and no matter what, if you sign up and commit to this, and you get a member who you dont get along with, you still must send a gift(not a bag of dog turds or something either)

    Can also be any gift, Toyota,hunting,fishing..anything..Once you recieve your "secret santa's" address and handle, YOU have to do research on something they want/need/might like. Nothing but a name and address will be pm'd to you.

    What do you mean if you sign up you might not get a gift. I figure only send it to someone who is sending something out no matter how cheap it might be.

    I thought about that after I posted...Let me rephrase that.

    Pretend Myself, Chris4x4,tigerfan and derekabraham signed up for this, pm's would go out with the name and addresses of these people. Say I'd send a gift to tigerfan

    tigerfan would send a gift to chris

    chris would send a gift to derek

    derek would send me a gift.

    Completely random who sends who a gift. As long as your on the "commit list" you send and get a gift, just random/annonomys from who.
    Better?:)

    Ok better. Is one where we can give like gag gifts or something to make it interesting. Or should we stick to something useful.

    Completely up to the sender. You may send a gag gift to someone, and get a $60 gift card back from your gifter. Its like gambaling

    x2. But I think I'll need help on this. Anyone want to volunteer there time?

    Then once I get a "staff", we can start a Committ list.
