    *REMINDERBUMP*

    Just a nudge that registration for this year's EG Secret Santa closes at midnight on Friday.

    Still time to sign up, and then look forward to the trepidation of opening a mystery parcel of weirdness from someone you've probably never met, in front of all your family.

    It's the true spirit of Christmas!

    Last chance to sign up for this year's Secret Santa - PM me by midnight if you want in with some present-y goodness.

    Enchanted - Have PM'd you. If I haven't got your address details by midnight, I'll have to take you off the list.

    I've got my pressie waiting to go to the lucky fucker who gets my name out of the hat.

    We should get everyone to video themselves opening it on a dedicated youtube channel.

    Think the reactions alone would be worth the admission ticket!

    Now that sounds like a plan!

    Registration closes at midnight tonight, and everyone should receive a mail with their giftee's details by the end of the weekend.

    Youtube account set up!

    eurogamersecretsanta

    What's the best way to get the videos up, should i just give the password out so everyone can upload or just one person uploads videos?

    We can also keep the person in the video a secret to double the laughs,

    This may end in tears!

    I'm aiming to get PM's out tonight. Certainly everyone should have their target / giftee within the next 24 hours.

    Enchanted - unless I hear from you in the next hour, I'm afraid I'll have to knock you off this year's list.

    Right, so clearly within the next 24 hours is perfectly acceptable if you have to do your shopping before the end of November. And that's at the absolute latest, for all I know names have already been handed out.

    I'm off this years list then. Merry Christmas to you too.
    Wait, what? So what you really meant was you absolutely, 100% have to do your shopping tomorrow. Fair enough I suppose, that's your right. You're still being respectful enough :)

    I'm out.

    Boo being a selective dick head.
    Ah, no you're not. You're calling a kind forumite who successfully ran this last year and is doing so again names, just because you have to do your shopping on a specific day. Rather uncalled for, isn't it?

    Sure, I know that really it isn't any of my business, but I don't think you're being fair at all to Boo, so I'm hoping you'll be offensive towards me instead for poking my nose in :p Not that Boo will take you seriously of course. Boo is wise.

    Ok, I'm a bit confused, but I'll assume that Facepalm doesn't want to take part in this year's Secret Santa.

    Also, haven't heard from Enchanted, so have had to take you off the list too.

    Everybody else - PM's on the way.

    Fruit, as I've said to boo in a pm, I asked to be removed from the EG secret Santa this year.

    Right.

    Everybody who signed up (and sent me their details) should now have a PM with the address of who they're sending a gift to.

    Most are in the UK - a small number of people have been randomly drawn overseas giftee's (well - apart from the ones who live overseas. That wasn't random at all.)

    To those, I'd say can you try and get your parcels in the post as early as poss, please? To everyone else, can you try and have your gifts in the post by Friday Dec 14th at the latest.

    (I can't believe that someone PM'd me to say their gift was sorted and delivery was organised before I'd finished sending out the PMs!)

    If you want to know sizes of things (feet, T-shirt size etc), I'm happy to pass questions on and get the answers back to you, otherwise, get creative and get posting.

    Merry Christmas, one and all!!

    Are we getting them in the post asap but not opening till xmas day?

    If so would be worth writing secret santa on the envelope as i tend to rip anything open that comes through the door!

    I think getting a package addressed to your username would be a good clue.
