    Cool MyGaming Secret Santa Event

    Welcome to the MyGaming Secret Santa for 2015

    Since last year was such a success I thought it is time to get the ball rolling on this now. Especially since we cannot always rely on our useless post office.

    For those of you that don't know what all this is about, here is a quick rundown. There will be a list of active MyG members that will receive a name randomly drawn by the Grand Poobah, and you have to buy an inexpensive gift for that person. This can be soap-on-a-rope, the latest Indie title no-one wants to play, or something grand and amazing, it's entirely up to you. It's as simple as that.

    But, as all fun things in life, you need a safe word or a few rules. So here are the current rules to this project:

    1. You do not talk about whom you have received as Secret Santa... please... keep it anonymous.
    2. All decisions are final, and you are stuck with the person bestowed upon you. We do not have the admin time to manage members changing who they got for secret santa.
    3. The budget of the gifts are set to R200. You can spend up to that amount, but no one can ever force you not to exceed it (wink wink).
    4. We would really appreciate it if you actually send the gift. If you just don't do anything, people will get sad and feel left out, and we don't want that.
    5. The members on our mystery list was chosen looking at past activity on the forum, membership to the MyGaming Steam Group, and overall suggestions from other well-standing members. It is entirely possible that you may have not been mentioned on this list though. To get onto the list please VOTE!
    6. Members wishing to join the Secret Santa must have been active on the forums in the past few months, or have more than 500 posts. To be added to the list please bribe PM me @Wyvern ) or @DieGrootHammer to receive invite after careful consideration OR just VOTE on this thread. (New members need to have at least 2 long standing members who can vouch for them to join the list.)
    7. I will gladly hand out gifts again to people via steam if you want to keep it anonymous - for steam gifts, just notify me so that I know that the gift is being planned.
    8. I think all gifts should be out by 1 December 2015 so that everyone can get their gifts before going on holiday - it is up to you when you want to open yours.
    9. Please also specify in your pm to me if you want to receive a gift in the post or just steam as well as how you want to gift a gift. - I will be posting something to someone again.
    These rules are here to ensure that we all have fun with this, and that we don't get fly-by-night spammers trying to get presents with no intentions to give anything.

    If you do not want to participate please vote no - if you do not vote, your name will not be in consideration for this. And you will NOT get a second chance to join in the fun.

    Then if you feel uncomfortable with giving random strangers on the internet your postal address, fear not, as your name will be put up for a steam gift only. So please vote, and then to confirm your vote, send Wyvern a PM with either your steam id (if you do not want to receive postage) or postal address. We will try and group the giftings that those who want to receive post, to be matched up with those willing to post. And the steam group with the steam people.

    I will give you all till 31 October 2015 Midnight to submit your vote, finalise the list and give it to the Grand Poobah to do the draw. I will not be following up to check if you sent me a pm or not - if you haven't then your details will not go onto the list even if you have voted, so remember to PM ME!

    @Wyvern & @DieGrootHammer

    Just a heads up, @Wyvern , there are gifting restriction in place by Steam. Something along the lines of having to wait at least a week before regifting a.. well.. gift. I won't be surprised if there is something restricting volumes of gifts as well, so I'd suggest trying to get a hold of someone at Valve to make sure this won't put you in a difficult spot.

    There was something about this last year as well, we noticed there was no issue tho. Will see if I can find out about it - Ok once again that applies only for trading, not gifting.

    iirc the waiting period only applies to trade items, not gift items. but I could be wrong

    We are starting it early so that gifts that are posted get to their intended targets before everyone disappears for holiday
