Hai hai again, everyone!~ Are you pumped for the winter holidays? This year, instead of the usual Wintry Wonderland, Mai-chan has thought of something a bit different, and she hopes you will like it too.
This year, Mai-chan is proud to present Minitokyo’s very first Secret Santa event!
-> What is a Secret Santa?
A “Santa” is the person who will bring you a gift - just like the real Santa!
The “Santee” is you, the person who will receive the gift - more on this below.
-> So how does it work?
Easy! You sign up in this thread with a wishlist, which is a list of things you like.
After signing up, you become both Santee and Santa yourself! So make sure you’re a responsible Santa and deliver your
gift on time, taking into account the wishlist your assigned person has written for you~
The prizes the Santas give is completely up to them. If you’re out of ideas, you can consider gifting a wallpaper, icons or banners, drawing something or even writing a poem for your Santee! If you really have no clue what to make, you can PM Mai-chan and she will ask your Santee for more info.
You MUST NOT contact your Santee directly - after all, that’s the point~
After everyone has signed up, Mai-chan and her helpers will pull names out of a hat and assign everyone a Santa and a Santee. Then they will diligently PM everyone and let them know who they will be making gifts for.
Your gifts DO NOT need to be submitted to the Minitokyo gallery! You can send your Santee their gift via PM, guestbook, posting in this thread or any other option you can think of!
-> What is the wishlist and what should it look like?
It is a list that will be used by your Santa to make your gift. A wishlist should include your favorite
anime/manga/movies/etc. and maybe even links to images or artists - anything that you think will help your Santa make
the best gift possible~
You should make sure to include as many things as possible just to make sure; if you don’t provide a good enough wishlist, your Santa can look through your Minitokyo watchlist to get an idea of what you like.
You can also include things you don’t like, so your Santa doesn’t accidentally gift you something bad.
If you want, you can write what prizes you would most likely want - for example, a userpage banner or a set of icons. But remember, the prize is up to your Santa!
Of course, you also have the option of telling your Santa to surprise you, literally!
-> How much time do I have?
Starting from the day of the announcement (6th of December), you have one week (until the 13th, included) to join and
post your wishlist in this thread.
Gifts should be delivered to your assigned Santee between the 23rd and the 27th of December - no sooner or later! But if you think you can’t make it then, send Mai-chan a PM and she will do her best to help~
You can sign up either in this thread or by sending a PM to Mai-chan. If you sign up here, you can later edit your post with your wishlist if you don’t include it right now (but make sure you post your wishlist by the 13th!).
