Welcome, one and all... (and Saitou-san!)... to the 2019th Secret Santa Event! ^_^ <3


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


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

Hi everyone! It's your community staffie, Santa Astra! Are you all ready for another festive season and celebration of all things happy? :D Well, you all better be, 'cause the Leeble Forest is lit up with rainbow lights, and you can just smell the fresh bakery treats from miles away, yum! <3 Of course, you can't forget the presents as well! And this is what the Secret Santa Event is all about! ^_^

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 24th 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 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:

1. 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.
2. 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!!!! ^_^)
3. Have fun! ^_^ (Even MORE Important! :D)
4. Let us know if you're ok with receiving a physical gift when you sign up :)
5. 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 ^_^
6. 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! ;3

Hi, I'm Emmy - I did the character portraits + misc art for Rakuen! https://twitter.com/etoyonaga

My favorite game is Link To The Past. I also love Nier Automata and digging Death Stranding so far. I'm an anime fan as well and my favorite lately is probably Made In Abyss. (<3 Nanachi) Otherwise my go-to color to wear is red and black, love tea (black and oolong) + coffee and I like listening to game music. Favorite artist is Moebius. I'm also into weird plants and moss. XD

I am cool with me sending me a physical gift!

(edit: Laura, I have a marimo buddy now - but the more the merrier! XD)

I would love to join!!!!!
I really enjoy video games, favorites include Minecraft, Banjo-Kazooie and recently Luigi's Mansion 3.
I absolutely adore theme parks and roller coasters. And I am a total fan of pretty much all things Disney related, Especially Disneyland.
Favorite rides include "it's a small world", the Haunted Mansion, and the Enchanted Tiki Room.

Also cats. Yes cats. Physical gifts A-OK.

I'd like to sign up ^^

I always love any art related to Rakuen or the stream! Besides that, I love tea, chocolate, miniature fake foods and Sumikko Gurashi. Some of my favorite games include Chrono Trigger, the Megaman series, Yoshi's Island, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Link to the Past, Starcraft, and a bunch of others.

@Astra: I'll DM you about the physical gift-stuff!

@naska: Do you have Marimo right now?

Count me in!  <|:)

Tons of different interests. I guess the current ones would be Sayonara Wild Hearts, Rakuen, any of the Megaman or Final Fantasy series for games. Music, lots of music lol. :music: Watch too many movies, but really enjoy most of the Ghibli catalog; Mononoke is fave, then probably Ponyo and Spirited Away. @naska: +1 to Made in Abyss I love the show and soundtrack (been reading ahead in the manga too). Enjoy green tea/matcha. Little baked sweets/candies are also fun. Like to try new recipes to cook.

Physical gifts are fine, but I most enjoy gifts of time spent together. (one year for a birthday, my brother gave me a written voucher to do a movie marathon together <3)


I so excited for this event!!

Hello.
A tradition is a tradition. I'm in too this year! :)

Here's my tastes, taken from past years, now slightly adapted.

Quote
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 for/like Oko the Bear, or any digital/physical (ok with that, but as things here in Chile are a bit dizzy, this can last months to arrive, but at least I have patience ^^, just keep that on mind) 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, testcards, etc. Also I'm actively learning english (isn't my main language). Of course, if you want to proupose your style, I'm open-minded in tastes!

That's it. I will love to see everyone's ideas! :D

P.S.: Also Astra, I know you're Santa logistic department, but also sometimes you need some sort of gift....

Heya! :umbrella: I'd like to participate in the Secret Santa! I haven't participated in one of these in a few years, so this should be fun!

I've got plenty of different interests. My current big ones are freshwater aquariums and closed ecosystems. I've also taken an interest in house plants. I'm a beginner in all of these hobbies, but I'm hoping to continue expanding my knowledge on it all.

My favorite genre of music is indie/alternative, and a few of my favorite artists are Cavetown, Owl City, Mayday Parade, and Paramore. (Also Shigi of course :D) I write songs too from time to time, but it's been so long since I've completed a song or produced anything. I also play a variety of instruments, the main ones being piano, guitar, and ukulele.

I am okay with being sent a physical gift, just not live fish :P

I'd love to join! :D I've never gotten the chance to participate in a Secret Santa Event

I don't believe I could take physical gifts..

I'm Wackyflipper, and as for my interests and hobbies, I enjoy drawing and animation, and I've been doing art for a long time now. I love video games such as Minecraft, Elsword, Kingdom Hearts, and Rakuen :3 I love any show or movie that is animated or a cartoon pretty much, I will take animated over live action almost any day. I am a crazy huge Disney nerd, and love to research Walt Disney World, along with all their animated movies. I am also a big anime fan, mainly in the sense of it as an artwork.

I'm super excited to join and can't wait to see who I get!

I'm in! Thanks Astra for putting this together.

My passions are video games (XCOM 2, Rise of the Tomb raider, League of Legends), I love music as well ( I'm a fan of the work of Joe Hishaishi, as well as  light rock indie groups), I'm a big art Fan as well of Magic the Gathering, I play a lot on arena but I also enjoy the physical card game quite a bits as well as I have a handful of EDH decks. Nothing is more meaningful than getting something someone drew/composed, crafted for me, for maximum UwU power. Here's a stash of some of my OCs and art people made for them and some embarrassingly aweful stuff I drew of them awhile ago https://sta.sh/2262a6u2xf94. I love getting to know people and spending time with people, so Something you love that you would like to share is an amazing idea, multiplayer games, movies nights, or something baked from a favorite recipe are all great gifts. And of Course anything Leeble Server or Rakuen related is instantly a win.

I'm open to have physical gifts sent to me.
