READ THIS THREAD IN IT'S ENTIRETY BEFORE POSTING. IF YOU POST IN A MANNER THAT EVEN HINTS TOWARD NOT READING AND COMPLETELY COMPREHENDING WHAT I'VE OUTLINED HERE, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM PARTICIPATION AND SUBSEQUENTLY BANNED. DON'T BELIEVE ME? TRY ME.

I just pitched this idea to the IRC channel and I think everyone thought it was a good idea. Honestly, I couldn't tell due to the high level of "im going to send a picture of goatse man lol" stupidity. Anyway, I think the idea went over well, so I'm going to go ahead and post it here.

What is a Secret Santa?
A Secret Santa program is typically done in grammar schools and/or office environments, in order to help bring cohesion to the school/business; however, it untimately fails, because no one ever gets what they want, because the person who drew their name is a cheap fuck and spent $10 instead of the intended $50 on the present. This aside, the premise is simple.

So what is the premise, Mr. Smarty Man?
Well, it's simple, you submit your name and a brief wishlist of items you want (and in this case, a valid mailing address, since most of us don't know each other personally).

What kind of wishlists?
It doesn't really matter, you can either submit a brief listing of vague items you want, a brief list of exact items you want, or something like an Amazon wishlist.

What is the limitation on the amount of money we spend?
I'm going to settle for a nice round 25$USD, since that's fairly affordable, and with shipping/handling, it'll likely come out to be roughly 30$USD.

Must we only include one item worth $25 or can we include multiple items totalling up to $25?
Either or. If you want 100 packs of Wrigley's Spearmint gum, then hey, go right ahead and ask for it, I don't care, just as long as you realize that just because you put down $1000 worth of suggestions, you'll only receive up to $25 worth of shit. Of course, if your Secret Santa is a fucking moron and decides to buy you that new Ferrari you requested, that's totally on them.

Okay, so far so good, but I live outside of the United States and Canada, what about me?
If there is enough demand for separate Secret Santa programs (most likely boiling down to North American, European, and Australian), then hey, I'll set that up. On the same token, if there are absolutely no objections against the possibility of drawing someone's name that lives halfway across the world, I'll allow it as well.

So if one fat, faggot American who wants to participate is a cheapass American pussy and decides that he doesn't want to be paired with some awesome guy from Europe, because he's a penny-pinching Jew, I, as a European, might not be able to participate due to fact that I'm the only European who wants to participate?
Yes, deal with it Frenchy. Next time, tell your parents to fuck each other in the greatest, most powerful, infallible country in the world: THE USA!

Okay, so what happens if I sign up, do everything I'm suppose to do, yet never receive an item from my Secret Santa?
I will have a list of everyone's pairings, thus I will know who your Secret Santa was. I will then permanently ban them from INTL for fucking over a fellow INTLer. However, as far as you being out $25 plus shipping and handling, well, that's just a risk you're going to have to take. On top of that, if it is later proven that they did send you your gift, but it has been lost in transit, well, I'll likely reveal your Secret Santas identity to you, so you two can hash it out.

Okay, on the other hand, what if as a Secret Santa, I send my gift, but they claim that they never receive it, what then?
There are magical things in this world called "receipts". I would tell you to either forward me the electronic receipt (if you bought the item online) or scan a copy of the paper receipt for the item, along with the parcel shipping receipt, where the ship-to address is visible, name of the company, and a shipment tracking number. Sounds like a lot of shit, huh? Well, I'm serious about this. I will not tolerate anyone fucking over someone else from INTL in this program. Anyway, tracking this shit is very important, because it would be incredibly easy to fraudulently sign up to receive a gift without ever sending anything in return.

So what is to stop someone from outside of the community from signing up only to fuck us over, not caring about being banned from INTL?
Only users with over 100 posts will be able to participate. I don't care if you've been here since INTL started, if you don't have 100 posts, you're not going to be involved. On top of that, if some random person that no one has ever heard of decides to participate, they're going to have to do some smooth talking to convince me to allow them to participate. NOTE: I am not limiting the pool of people simply to be elitist, I'm only doing so out of the best interests of those involved. If I were to allow any John or Jane Doe to sign up for this, I'm sure that I'd get a lot of complaints when it's all said and done.

So basically what you're saying is that this is the INTL Elite Secret Santa and just because I only have 1 post, I can't participate?
Well, yeah.

Fine, sounds good. When does this start and when does it end?
It starts now, submissions end on Friday, November 26th.

How do I sign up?
At the moment, send me a private message containing the following information:

Ship-to Name
Ship-to Address
A brief wishlist (may be an Amazon wishlist)

What if I sign up, but later change my mind?
Just let me know, and I'll remove you from the list.

How will the names be assigned?
Randomly.

Oh, and before anyone asks, all this information is strictly confidential. I will not use your address for anything other than providing your Secret Santa with it upon selecting random Santas.

Again, I repeat, your mailing address will remain confidential and will not be shared with anyone other than me and your Secret Santa upon selecting random Santas.

Also, by joining this, you take responsibility for the possibility of getting fucked over when it's all said and done. I will do everything I possible can to avenge someone screwing you over out of a gift, but ultimateily, it is a chance you're taking by joining this contest. In a perfect world, this would run smoothly and flawlessly, but there are people out there like (and even worse than) Salamando.

These types of things are always really fun to participate in. Good idea, Sandamnit.

I have 22 days to see if I am still poor, and if for some reason I learn to handle money decently before the deadline then I will participate.

Count me as a "no" for the moment, but it might change.

One question though, is there any way to request that certain forummers don't get our name/addresses, or is it something that we have no say in? Just wondering, not that I care that much as I am at school any my address is going to change at the end of the year anyway, but some people might be a bit hesitant if, let's say, Salamando gets their address.
