Post by: Astragoth on November 07, 2017, 11:38:42 AM
WELCOME ONE & ALL, TO THE TWO-THOUSANDTH-AND-SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL LEEBLE FOREST SECRET SANTA EVENT!!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi everyone! Astragoth here, and welcome to a brand new Secret Santa in the Leeble Forest, courtesy of the year 2017! ^_^

If this is your first time participating in our annual Secret Santa Event, WELCOME! ^_^ There are a few rules / guidelines to the Event that I would ask you to read first (which can be found further down the page), but if you meet all the criteria, please feel free to reply in this thread to sign up to the Event! :D

Not sure what Secret Santa is all about? Fear not, for I shall endeavour to explain below :)

Secret Santa is how we celebrate Christmas here in the Leeble Forest (aka the Supershigi Forums), so if you'd like to participate, please post a reply in this Forum Post saying you're interested, and I will add your name to the Sign-up List! :D

Once we get all the people that want to sign up for Secret Santa, come the end of the 19th of November at Midnight (PST/PDT), Sign-up's will close, and I'll then be putting everyone's names into my favourite hat, and drawing them out one by one...

After all the names have been drawn, I'll be sending a Private Forum Message out to everyone seperately (so others won't know who they will be giving a gift to), with who their Secret Santa will be ^_^ It is very important you don't tell anyone who you got, so no telling others on Leeble Discord or anything, as that will spoil the surprise hehe! :)

After you get your PM from me, it will be up to you to decide on what sort of gift you'd like to make for your Secret Santa. It can be ANYTHING you'd like, from something simple like a card / gift card, to a Steam game gift, to even something you've made yourself! <|:)

Also, if you'd like to send your Secret Santa a physical gift, please let me know via a Private Message, and I'll pass your message along to your Secret Santa and make sure it's ok with them first :)

For everyone that's participating in this year's Secret Santa Event, please let us know here in this thread what your interests / hobbies are, so the person sending you a gift can get an idea of what you like :)

Once you know who your Secret Santa will be, the deadline for sending in your gift / creation will be on the 20th of December at 11:59pm. Gifts can be sent to me (Astragoth) via my email address - astragoth04@gmail.com.

- If your gift is a Steam game, you can add me on Steam and give me the gift that way. My username is 'Astragoth4' (without the quotations). I'll work out the details with you on Steam if you decide to buy a Steam game for your Secret Santa :)

- If your gift is something physical you'd like to send to someone, it would be really cool to take a picture of what you're sending to that person. Or, and to make it more of a surprise and not ruin it, put the goodies in a bag and take a picture of the bag ^_^ If you send me an email with that picture, I can post it with everyone's gifts come Christmas Day :)

Just a few rules to keep in mind before signing up for Secret Santa, which are very important:

- Participants entering into the Supershigi Forum's 2017 Secret Santa Event must have a minimum of 20 posts.
- Please let us know while signing-up what your interests / hobbies are in this thread, so your Secret Santa knows what sort of a gift you'd like :) (VERY IMPORTANT!!!! ^_^)
- Have fun! ^_^ (Even MORE Important! :D)
- Let us know if you're ok with receiving a physical gift when you sign up :)
- Not really a rule, but you WON'T get the same Secret Santa as you did last year (for those who have participated in previous Secret Santa's), since it's good to keep it fresh and give a gift to someone you haven't given one too yet ^_^
- PLEASE only sign-up for this Event if you can participate and make a gift, since it would be unfair for someone that has signed up to miss out on receiving a gift. Thanks heaps! :)

Well, that's pretty much it! ^_^ If you have any other questions regarding the Secret Santa Event that I haven't covered above, please ask here, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can! :D

REALLY looking forward to another awesome Secret Santa Event YESSSSS!!!! ^_^ :D

Sign me up!

I like music (metal!) and games.  I'd really like a card or video greeting, but wouldn't say no to something on Steam.  Physical gifts are fine too:)

Thank you Astra Santa for setting this up! I'm in.  <|:)

A card or video greeting would be a lot of fun... something you made that makes you think of me somehow? Is that super cheesy? I like cheese. LOL.

Steam games are always welcome, and so are physical gifts if you prefer that. I like cute things. Animal Crossing is a favorite of mine, I have a pet hedgehog named Yuki, and I like Funko Pop figures more than I should. I also love playing in my garden. I've been failing at learning Japanese for the past 2 years, and watching lots of anime to try to learn. It doesn't work. ;)

Sign me up! Thanks for organizing this, Astra! Things have been so busy lately, that it's nice to have something like this to remind us of the community. I always love Secret Santa here!

I'd be happy with anything really - a card or video greeting, fan art related to Rakuen, etc. As for interests, you know I love Animal Crossing, miniature foods (like the kinds of things you'd see on R.R. Cherry Pie's channel lol), Mega Man, Miyazaki films, my WoW Hunter (even though I haven't played in ages... but I will be returning), Starcraft, and just cute things in general.

I miss you guys!

Would love to be part of this!

I know I'm not a frequent poster, but I'm active in the Rakuen Discord and would like to just take part in spreading holiday cheer. I promise I won't disappear off the face of the planet, or anything! :)

As for what I like... Well Rakuen, of course! And Sue. Sue is the best. But other than that... my favorite video game series are NiGHTS, Chibi-Robo, MOTHER, The iDOLM@STER, Pokemon, and Mario. I also love anime. My favorite is One Piece. And uhhh.... I'm addicted to cheese.

But really, I'd be fine with whatever. Something from the heart that's unique and memorable is always nice. Hope everyone participating has a good time! :)

Well, thanks for give me a chance on this interesting event!
I'm in! :D

I like to listen to music, and most of them are games/movies soundtracks (Rakuen, Your name, DDLC)  :music:
I enjoy to make my own creation (Render, Animations, noteblock songs, games). And I'll keep make things about Rakuen (Render, Animation, Fan-story, Translation that I don't know when it will finish cuz I'm work alone) until the time for me to leave...

 <|:)
About the my gift, it's possible to be 5 USD Steam key and a render (I'll give both 5 USD Steam key and a render.)
I have no any game in my wishlist (Both Steam and Blizz)
btw. sorry for my bad english.

Have a good days!  :umbrella:

As above, many thanks for letting me participate :)

I just like music, so I’d be pretty happy with anything music-related! If it happens to be an album, then in any film soundtrack would be great (except Studio Ghibli, as I own most of them already!). Some of my favourite composers are Toru Takemitsu, Michael Giacchino, Joe Hisaishi, Koji Kondo, John Powell, Arvo Part, James Newton Howard and Hwang Byung-ki. If you happen to have something with traditional instruments like the koto or taiko, even better!

Alternatively, literally anything - I’m interested in pretty much anything that doesn’t involve intense physical activity ^^;

Oh Hi!

Original post.
Hey leebles!

I know I do not meet the 20-post requiriments for join this year :(
But as you people talked on Discord, maybe I can, but first I need to ask, if this is more something for "the old friends", or it's not... I mean, I feel like part of the forest hehe and I will love to participate in this, but I don't know if you feel the same about me, and maybe you people feel more comfortable with "oldest-ones"... so I don't know if that's okay, or it's better to not participate in.

Anyways, if the answer is no, don't worry, I wil understand :) . And if the answer is yes, I will update this post with my preferences and those things, okay?

Grettings all! 
 :D

PS: I do not want to make 20 posts for participate, since that's basically flooding haha.

By internal, people allowed me to enter to secret santa, so I'm in! :D

A gift? Can be litteraly anything. I love imagination in a broad way, so you can think in simple things like grettings in any meta-understandable format, or some any-flavour-ugly-arts (drawing-music-other-ones-- the intention that counts), or maybe little fantasy friends, or any digital/physical (ok with that) things, etc etc ... In fact, anything made/sent with love and good wishes will make me happy :D

Do you like more digital things? I'm doing lots of computer stuff/media developing; if you want to do something specialized in that. Interests? Retro computer/consoles stuff and error/glitchy screens. (I loved Pony Island (?) ). But if you want to proupose your style, I'm open-minded in tastes :)

@SoHoInBrooklyn Hope you can join in. It will be fun! :)

Bye!

Hey guys! I haven't posted on here in 7 months(!), but I've been pretty active in the Discord.

You can probably find out a lot about me from my post history. Here are some things I haven't mentioned in my posts:

I am a huge fan of video game speedrunning. For those who know what it is, I went to SGDQ this past summer (although I didn't do a run there).
I am a huge fan of Pepsiman, a game which I speedrun.

I plan on updating this post soon, but I can't think of any other stuff at the moment.

Physical gifts are fine (I live in the north-central United States), and Steam games are fine too (Steam name is TheFlyingMarlin) :D

If the involved count comes out odd I'm in. If so I'll edit this.

EDIT:
Aww man, I got in and now have to do this? Fine, fine...
I'm known for enjoying art, being a fan of Lovecraftian media, enjoying quantum physics lectures, and apparently I'm a Nintendo fanboy or something Iunno, reading weird indie comics. I've never received a bad gift, like ever. So if you don't like me just write 'gift' on a txt and I'll be all <3 over it somehow. I think I say that every year.
Meh I couldn't think of anything. Oops.

Kupo!
Dean let me know this was going on a few days ago, & it sounds awesome ^-^
I'll try my best to get my post count up so that I can participate; but even if I can't, I'll look forward to seeing how it turns out for everyone else :)

[I'll add in Interests/Hobbies if I can get my posts to 20 in time]

Wow it's been awhile since I've checked in.  I'll join in again this year.

I'm a fan of anime (boku no hero academia is one of my favorites now), DotA, Starcraft and other blizzard games and batman,

Look forward to doing secret santa again!
