OK, I'm going to host the 2007 GottaDeal Secret Santa, card exchange, and ornament exchange!

If you want in, please PM me with:

I would like to join:

* Secret Santa
* ornament exchange
* card exchange
-edited to add for next year, lets include your favorite cookie rec. in the cards?
-cookie exchange?

* want to be a "elf" (an elf is somebody that will send out a present if somebody else never receives theirs)

* likes / dislikes:
* username:
* name & address:
* anything else you want told

-edited to add for next year, please print or write info down that way you have it if something happens and you can't get online for awhile

RULES:
1. for the ornament ex. There's a MINIMUM of $5 before shipping. If you choose to spend more, please don't be disappointed if your partner doesn't.

2. Secret Santa-There's a MINIMUM of $10 before shipping. If you choose to spend more, please don't be disappointed if your partner doesn't.

3. Delivery confirmation is a MUST.
-edited to add for next year, please pm me the dc asap

4. No junk. Everything must be new and unused.

6. The last day to ship is Monday Dec. 3 (if you cannot ship by this date you must ship priority ASAP as i have given plenty of time.)

7. you CAN join one, two or all three-- just let me know

8. This is not a GottaDeal.com sanctioned event, so participate at your own risk. We assume responsibility for nothing.



I don't want newbies to be upset.. but it sucks not receiving your gift as well, sorry but it's true. so i would ask you have been a member since May and you have positive feedack, like eBay. This is a general rule, not set in stone. I make the decisions one by one, and if you failed a years past don't bother i will kick you out.
For whatever reason i don't let you join please remember my decision sticks so don't bother crying after.


So far we've got:

Thanks to eve for doing this again. I just want to reiterate that this is not an "official" event, so please do not contact myself or any of the other moderators if things go bad. But it has worked very well in the past, and I have no reason to think it won't go even better this year :) Have fun everyone :D

I was to late to sign up last year and (can't remember how) found someone else that was in the same situation, so we decided to have our own. I don't want to mention her (privacy thing) but it worked out very nice. I will just mention that she is one of the nicest people I have "met" online. I only mention to give some newbies some ideas since it's outside of GD activities, you can do it on your own if you're willing to risk your money and time on another newbie. Just a suggestion, but please don't PM Eve with questions or try to get her involved. If you can't figure it out on your own, you'll have problems with wrapping and mailing and you should probably keep those problems to yourself. If this is against GD rules to even post this, please don't put me in GD jail as I have special dietary restrictions and cannot sleep without my stinky pillow. Thank you.

well ive gotten lots of pm's,lol I WILL GET TO THEM, I SWEAR............. and then i'll reply to them......... just not yet,lol looks like we have got 30 or so, so far lots of great faces from last year, im so excited........ and several new ones :) and so many offers for elves, i really hope we don't need it, i mean come on if you make a promise and COMMIT to something and get something on your end there is no reason not to follow thru. But It feels really nice to know i can count on someone to step up to the plate, expecting nothing for themselves i don't have the time yet, but i wanted to go ahead and get it started, so you gonna have to bear with me ;)
