    Welcome everyone to the official Secret Santa thread for 2021!

    We're the best. We're the beautiful. We're the only...Pinside Secret Santa group! Since the last four years went off basically dolphin smooth, I'll keep things nice and consistent for anyone who has participated before and not change anything. I closed the old thread since the registration time frame has now passed and I opened up this thread to keep things clean and streamlined. We can use this thread to post announcements, questions, updates, ship dates and of course to show off all our ill gotten booty that we receive from our secret santas. It's a been another long year, so let's really try to end 2021 on a positive note.

    Here's how things are going to go. Tonight and early tomorrow I will assign everyone a number and go down the list and randomly draw a secret santa for every participant. I should have everyone's e-mail address, so I will send an e-mail to each person with the name and information I have for who you are to buy gifts for. If they gave me any gift ideas or a list of the games they own that they don't display to the public, I will include those as well. If you don't receive an e-mail from me by end of day, Nov. 12, please PM me. You then will have about a month to purchase gifts and ship them out to your SS. The cut off date will be Monday, Dec. 13th for shipping so all items have a chance to get there by Christmas Eve. You can and should ship them out much sooner as soon as they are ready to go though. The post office will probably be backlogged again this year, so don't wait till the last minute unless you absolutely have to! You can wrap the gifts individually if you want and send them in one big box or even have them directly shipped to your SS if you want to save some money that way. Please do not include your name on the return address no matter what method you choose, use the name "Pinside Secret Santa" instead. That way everyone will know when your package arrives and they won't know who it is from. When you do send your gifts, please send me a PM or e-mail with the tracking information so I can add it to my sheet and cross you off the list. When your SS package arrives, please post in this thread too so the sender knows you got it safe and sound, even if you don't intend to open for a while. People can be worried about porch pirates, so even if the tracking says delivered, your SS wants to make sure you got it and not someone else. And of course, this is an important one...after you open your SS package, post the money shots of all your goodies here and give a proper thank you shout out to your Secret Santa for doing their part to spread a little holiday cheer. If there is one thing we struggle with year after year, it's this. People can put a lot of time and effort into buying gifts and can be very proud of what they buy for you with their hard earned money, so please take a moment to post pictures after opening and say a quick thank you! You don't have to gush over everything and write a super long story, but please take a minute to acknowledge what you received.

    Before the fun officially commences, we need to cover some basic ground rules...

    *First off, this will be as fun as we make it. If we put in some effort, everyone should have a good time. Please check your SS's public game list on Pinside and the ideas they included (if any) and do some creative investigation. Maybe search their old posts, check out any pictures or their Pinside story if they have one.
    You are free to buy what you want, you don't have to get anything that your SS may have suggested for gifts, but please just put the same amount of thought into your gifts that you would want someone to put into the gifts for you and things should be fine.

    *On that note, please no public bitching on Pinside about what you receive, that isn't the point of this. This is supposed to be about giving, spreading some joy and adding a little of that childhood magic back into the holidays again. If you really wanted an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle...but got a football instead...just be thankful for what you received or at least fake it like you would with your in-laws.

    *The dollar amount you should aim for when buying gifts is at least $30. That is not a hard cap by any means. Tis the season, so you can spend as much as you feel comfortable with, but please at least hit that number value wise so no one is short changed from a dollar standpoint.

    *I will keep track of who shipped packages and when they were shipped. I will send out a reminder to anyone I haven't heard from 1 week before the deadline, but PLEASE, be responsible and buy your gifts and ship them out before the deadline so we don't run into issues with having to track people down and recipients not getting packages in time. This will be especially important this year with the shortfalls USPS is likely to have.

    *Finally, most importantly, No dead beat Santas. If you don't think you can fulfill your end of the bargain for whatever reason, please contact me and I can remove your name from the list now with no questions asked. Nothing would be worse for this than someone not following through and leaving someone empty handed. By participating, you are agreeing to be responsible and fulfill your obligation to the recipient. I know unexpected things can happen, so if a Santa runs into any issues, notify me immediately please. The sooner I am made aware, the sooner I can figure a solution to the issue. Once again, if a Santa fails to follow through, and does not contact me ahead of time (to solve the issue), I will have no problem outing them to the Pinside community and we all know how merciless this community can be. This is the only warning you will receive for this, so please let's not have to go there.

    I think that about covers it. Any other questions, feel free to post in this thread or PM me and I would be happy to help. Let's put on those Santa hats, give 2021 a blowtorch to the scalp and get ready for a better 2022 with the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny #%&[email protected] Kaye! Let Christmas begin!

    fact:
    chinchillas are incredible pinball players (although they have to work in groups of 2-3 to play well due to their narrow arm reach. *3 are required for games with lockdown bar action buttons

    little known fact:
    chinchillas are only 2nd to kamado dragons as being the "best" pet you can own

    I too have picked up a few things, just waiting on my Santee so I can finish up. Want to get some specifics on my person.
    I hope to do a 12 days of Pinsmas. That seems to be a hit. But only my Santee will know if I pull that off. Won't be advertising that possible success here.

    I have so much Lutefisk to give out this year. I need to find a bigger box.

    I had to step away from my desk for a bit today, so if you haven't received your pairing for Secret Santa 2021 yet, never fear. I'll be back at it tonight so expect them all to be sent out later tonight. I'll also make an update post when all e-mails are sent so everyone knows to look for theirs and if they don't have one to contact me.

    The Pinside Secret Santa e-mails have been sent and if I didn't have your e-mail address, you have a PM from me with your information. You are all now officially on the clock!

    Start investigating your Pinsider and picking up gifts ASAP, so you can get your gifts shipped out well before the Dec. 13th deadline this year. If any issues pop up, you have any questions or need my help, let me know right away. Happy hunting and good luck!

    ...and with that I bid you all a good night...
