    It's been a rough year y'all. But our favorite time is coming up… TACOMA WORLD SECRET SANTA!!!! We (@Sandman614, @emelianenkov, and myself) would like to welcome you to TWSS 2020. This year marks the 7th year and we are hoping it's the BEST ever.





    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, I will be ready with my ban-hammer. 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!




    Fill out the survey here.

    If the survey is not filled out in its entirety, we will delete your entry.

    There is absolutely no need to let everyone know you completed the survey. Let’s try to keep the BS down. Not everyone has time to read dozens of pages.


    Please participate in the wishlist thread:

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/tw-secret-santa-2020-wishlist-thread.687514/









    NAME SUBMISSIONS CLOSE NOVEMBER 15TH AT 11AM EST, NO EXCEPTIONS and we mean it!!!!




    NEW RULES AS OF 2020:

    Members must have joined before January 1st of the year participating. (Before 1/1/20 this year)

    Members must have at least 400 posts by October 15th to be added to the list! Don’t BS your way to 400 if you have 189 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).





    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.

    - 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 gifts excluding 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….

    - 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.

    - 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, 11am 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.

    Observations and important information goes here.

    Posting IN does not mean you are in.
    Arguing with elves will get you nowhere.
    Do not change your username now until after Secret Santa is over.

    IF YOU GET BANNED FOR ANY REASON AND THIS CAUSES YOUR GIFTEE TO GET SCREWED, YOU ARE PERMANENTLY BANNED FROM ALL FUTURE SECRET SANTAS. So be on your best behavior.


    Regarding “post count”, message count is what we will use. We reserve the right to deny participation if you BS your way to 400 posts.

    Sadly I'm too new here to participate this year but look forward to playing along next year. I take part in this on another forum and it's one of my favorite things now for the holiday season.

    Good luck and happy shopping to all of you who will be taking part!
