    It's been another rough year y'all. But our favorite time is coming up… TACOMA WORLD SECRET SANTA!!!! We (@Sandman614, @emelianenkov, and @Daria ) would like to welcome you to TWSS 2021. This year marks the eighth year and we have some high expectations for greatness this year.


    SIGNUPS ARE OFFICIALLY CLOSED.

    Here's the timeline for you A.D.D. kids…


    October 15th, signup starts.

    November 15th, signup closes.

    November 16th-21st, names are distributed.

    You can send gifts as soon as you receive your name.

    Everyone should hopefully receive their gifts BY Christmas. We understand there are often delays. If there is a serious delay, you will likely get a message from @TWSS asking what the deal is. If you don’t respond, we will be ready with the ban-hammer and you’ll end up on the @KRAMPUS list of naughty children. You could alleviate this by having a friend PM your recipient letting them know there is a delay or mail them a postcard letting them know there is a delay. Be creative, people!









    NAME SUBMISSIONS CLOSE NOVEMBER 15TH AT 12 Noon EST, NO EXCEPTIONS and we mean it!!!! There are time stamps, so don’t even fuss.





    NEW RULES AS OF 2021:


    Members must have joined before January 1st of the year participating. (Before 1/1/21 this year)

    Members must have at least 750 posts by October 15th to be added to the list! Don’t BS your way to 750 if you have 598 currently. Just participate more in the community and join in the fun next year. We have the rights to deny participation to anyone for any reason(unlikely to happen but some people are on a one year time out or permanent ban from future events due to various reasons).

    If someone gets banned for any reason while during the Secret Santa season and they are participating, they will be removed from the event and will be banned from future events. THIS IS YOUR WARNING TO BE ON YOUR BEST BEHAVIOR!




    Some simple rules:

    - Keep gifts PG-13 unless you know the recipient personally, lets not upset spouses or make things awkward for anyone…

    - Absolutely NO WHINING!!! If you whine incessantly, you may face a ban from future events.

    - Assclownery and douche-baggery will not be tolerated. Try to stay on topic, otherwise elves may try to beat you with a stick.

    - YOU must do the legwork once pm'd. If you need help, ask a friend to help. The elves WILL NOT do your dirty work.

    - You must send a gift to the name you get, no exceptions EX: dont see eye to eye, don't like their mama, etc. We elves DGAF.

    - 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. There’s no opt out for this.

    - Same as years past, there is no cap, you can be as generous as you wish but there is a $30 minimum for giftsexcluding shipping costs. If you decide to go nuts and spend a ton of money, don't expect the same from your secret santa.

    - We will do our best to make it fair and not have anyone in the same state, but it's hard when we have 250+ participants each year.

    - Mods and elves here on TacomaWorld take no responsibility if someone flakes and does not send a gift. We will do our best to fix it, since we will have their names/addresses…. Maybe I’ll send cousin Vinny to break their kneecaps.

    - As long as you're on the commit list with full name AND handle, you will send AND receive a gift.

    - Once a gift is received, please post a picture. Don’t make your SS sit there anxious and freaking out, wondering if a porch private snagged your booty. Please make sure to censor names and addresses to protect everyone’s privacy, or what little we have left nowadays. Please proactively check for packages but don’t whine daily about not receiving anything. It’s annoying and you don’t want to anger the elves.

    - If possible, keep proof of the item being sent in case it's lost/stolen in the mail. At the very least, we can prove that it was sent out. The elves don’t need this information proactively.

    - Once Nov 15th, 12 Noon EST is here, you can not back out of your commitment, to be fair. We use time stamps, don’t try to argue this.

    - If you choose to send your gift in a box, it's your choice to wrap it or not. Recommendation is to not send it in the box it came in, as to ruin the surprise.



    Let's get this going and hopefully we have another even more successful year than last year!




    We will not respond to any PMs on our personal accounts. IF you have issues and it warrants reaching out to us, please PM @TWSS. If you PM the elves, you may risk losing the opportunity to participate.

    No politics, no COVID discussions, same CoC rules apply.

    Reading is hard. Read the rules or don’t participate.

    Check this post on October 15th for signup instructions. Posting “IN” does nothing here. And it’s annoying.

    Every year there are people whining that their victim doesn't have any quality posts. Every year I say GET YOUR victim SOMETHING YOU'D BE HAPPY RECEIVING. While that still stands true this should help.. Albeit unfortunately leaving some newbies or not very talkative members out.

    It's a fine balance..

    Think outside the box... Nerf darts and socks make great packaging to fill out a box.

    Also WISHLISTS. I know there are members that say "I'll be happy with anything" or whatever other excuse.. Post one! Even if it's small and simple it helps to have a little bit of guidance. There is no judgment here.
    • Do you like sticker bombing your stuff?
    • Do you like My Little Pony?
    • What size t-shirt/sweatshirt?
    • Do you have enough 10mm soc :rofl: I can't even finish that thought...
    • While we don't fully discourage alcohol in general, if you are adverse to it add that!
    • Do you have enough socks?
    • Do you want something crazy add it, we have crazy members and you might get very fortunate. It's fun to see your lofty goals.

    And post it early.

    Last year I waited weeks after I got my vics name before sending their gifts only to see them post their wishlist after it was delivered.
