2012 Secret Santa Sign-Up Post

christmas trek2012
Welcome to the 4th ontd_startrek Secret Santa!

izzimalfoy and myself are happy to be back again this year to help spread some cheer!

In order to keep this confidential! I ask that all signups get sent to The Official ONTD Star Trek Secret Santa Email Address! ontd.startrek.santa@gmail.com


1. Deadline to sign up is November 9th, 2012.

2. You will be notified of your partner on or about Nov 15th, 2012 by email.

3. Spending limit is about $15.00 this does not mean you have to go out and spend exactly $15. You can use anything at your disposal. It is the thought that counts, not the cost!!

4. Mail to your partner by December 25th! (A little leeway is ok, but please try for before New Year's!)

5. You are not required to make a gift that is an option. A homemade gift is always nice but at this time of year we understand if that might not be possible. Make sure you count the cost of your homemade gift in the $15.

6. PLEASE NOTE: Your address, should you provide it, will be sent to someone else who participates on this forum. The only people who will see it are myself, the volunteers, and your Santa. If you have any concerns about this, I would suggest optioning the online gift.

7. If you find out that you cannot participate after having signed up, PLEASE EMAIL US AND LET US KNOW AS SOON AS YOU CAN! We don't have a problem switching around a few things so that everyone is covered. If we don't hear from you, we'll assume a gift is being sent in one form or another. For those who may unfortunately be a victim of this, there will be an "I've been scrooged!" submission date. This applies for both physical gifts and online gifting.

8. To participate, please send an email to ontd.startrek.santa@gmail.com with the following questionnaire completed.

LJ User Name:
Real Name:
Mailing Address:

Favorite GQMF?
Favorite ST character?
Favorite ST series?
Favorite ST Movie?

Do you collect anything?
Are you allergic to anything?
Would you like to get candy in your gift?
Things you spend the most money on?
Tumblr/twitter/facebook/blog (other than LJ)/personal website?

Other information you would like your Santa to know about you...

Did you participate last year?
If yes, did you receive your gift?

Will you be sending a Physical Gift/Card Only/Online Gift ?
For physical gift/card only options: Are you willing to ship internationally?
As a santa, are you willing to act as a "de-scrooger"? A de-scrooger is someone who sends someone who got scrooged a gift without reciprocation:

Do you have any allergens?


*Note about online gifts*  Due to past experience, should you choose to exchange online gifts, please understand that we can't be responsible if you do not receive a gift as there are no tracking system for emailing. We will try our best to find out from your Santa or arrange for de-scrooging.

*Note about shipping*  I am going to try to put people that live in the same part of the world in the same groups for the exchange. I know that may take some of the random fun out of it but, I also understand how bad shipping costs can be.

May we advise you to join/watch this community so that you'll receive updates regarding SS. We will try to cross-post to ontd_st whenever possible, but we'd prefer to not clutter the comm.

Any questions, please leave a comment and we'll try out best to reply a.s.a.p.
