Thread: 2016 MerNetwork Secret Santa Official Thread

  1. #1

    2016 MerNetwork Secret Santa Official Thread

    General overview of this year's rules (you agree by signing up):

    - We recommend that you spend no more than $15 on your gift (this includes handmade crafts, but exceptions may be made if an item is worth more than $15 but is second hand - as in the giver had it).
    - If you do spend over $15, don't be upset if you get a gift that cost less.
    - Your gift has to be mailed by November 15th - you must be able to commit to this.
    - You must state if you are comfortable with being partnered with someone with an international address. (PLEASE TAKE SHIPPING TIMES INTO ACCOUNT!)
    - You must be an active user on the forums with at least 30 substantial posts before Sept 1, 2016.
    - Accounts made after September 1, 2016 will not be eligible to participate.
    - No food, anything live, dangerous/illegal, or inappropriate (NSFW).
    - Don't send fragile things unless you're absolutely sure they are protected.
    - Your sign-up address does not have to be your own if you have privacy concerns (use a friend’s name and address, etc) – as long as you can still receive your gift.
    - Do not share anyone’s information or real names anywhere.
    - Gifts are mer-related!
    - If you fail at sending a gift even after you've given your word of commitment, or break the privacy policy, your account will be publicly acknowledged as being owned by a jerk and you will be banned from future exchanges.
    - Registration will end on Oct 31, 2016.

    Official email: mernetworksecretsanta@gmail.com
    You'll be emailing this address for confirmation of sent and received gifts, or if you have any questions/concerns.

    Discretion and Liability Agreement
    By agreeing to sign up for this event you are agreeing to the following terms:

    • All private information of the gift-tee (the person receiving the gift) that will be disclosed (including names, addresses, and photos) will remain private (unshared, un-spammed, and only used for this transaction) unless sole permission from the gift-tee says otherwise. Failure to comply to this rule means you are banned from participating in any other exchanges.

    • If you sign up and don’t send a gift, you will be forever known as a person who is unreliable and can’t follow through. Also, people on the forums will generally think of you as a jerk. This is a commitment. If you do not honor this you will be banned from future participation.

    • You cannot hold the organizer responsible for the gift you receive or for any liabilities. This is a community event and I have no personal vested interest or ulterior motive in organizing this activity.

    This is my first year participating but I have to say, I have looked forward to this event every year for the last several years. I just love seeing the community really come together and the joy of everyone sharing and receiving all the wonderful things and kind words.

    Ugh, one of these days I'll have the time and resources to participate. >_< I love getting to see people share the gifts and excitement over discussions though.

    Yay, I'm in! Can't wait to see what everybody will come up with <3

    I would prefer shipping within Europe, but if that's not possible it's no biggie.

    What type of issues? Perhaps if we knew what they were we could help out better.
