Here it is! The one, the only, the AWESOMELY AWESOME 2018'th LEEBLE FOREST SECRET SANTA EVENT OH YEAH!!!! <3


:santaleeble: <|:) <|:) <|:) <|:) <|:) <|:) <|:) <|:) :santaleeble:


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

What's going on everyone? Staffie Santa Astra here! Man, 2018 is coming to a close so fast hey? Better roll up my festive sleeves and get this here Forest all lit up and decorated with trees, lights, tinsel, and.... what? Presents? OF COURSE hehe, that's what this Event is all about after all! ^_^

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 28th 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 (or a Direct Message if you have Discord) 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 21st 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:

- As a general rule, participants must have a minimum of 20 posts, or be active ("active" being at the discretion of the staff) on the Leeble Forest Discord.
- 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

Yay Astra! I'm so glad we're doing this event again this year, thanks so much for organizing! Definitely count me in :)

Hobbies/Interests:
I'd really appreciate anything, but to help give some ideas: I love anything related to tea, chocolate, fun snack things (especially if it's from a place I've never been to). Some of my favorite video games: Chrono Trigger, Yoshi's Island, the Megaman series, Starcraft, Animal Crossing, Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past/Link Between Worlds, etc. I collect miniature fake food (like the kind from Japanese convenience stores lol). And of course I love any Rakuen-related art! Hope this is helpful!

Hey Astra!

I'm down!

I like to draw, both traditional (watercolor and ink) and digital, digital for animating (I'm an animation student). Would be interested in more techniques in digital painting in Photoshop since I still feel like an amateur. I'm recently a fan of YouTube animators, particularly Jaiden Animations, SomeThingElseYT and Let Me Explain Studios.

That, and I enjoy games as well, my favorites are Ori and the Blind Forest, Okami and Hollow Knight.

To secret santa,

I'm also unpredictable noise maker, almost-former animator (I mainly made Minecraft animation/render), pixel artist (I guess).

Hello!
Last time I'm not too much active mainly beacuse interesting stuff happens at >3 AM XD, but it's a good oportunity to give love since...
Spoiler for "If you belive in santa ignore this":
When you're an adult, you need to be Santa for make christmas alive :D

I will copypaste the past year stuff, since my tastes doesn't changed too much.

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

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

Grettings!

Sounds good Aussie goth man. This'll be my first time doing this.

I like:
RPGs (Pokémon, Paper Mario, etc.)
Twitch streaming
Difficult games (Super Meat Boy wink wink)
Speedrunning (also Super Meat Boy wink wink)
Music
Food
Programming
Art


I may be a bit iffy on physical gifts. I'll likely accept any genre of game except for FPS. Most of the titles I play are indies.

(Will probably update later)
