HUKD Virtual Secret Santa
The traditional way Secret Santa is run is that members of a group are randomly assigned other members to whom they anonymously give a gift.
However, its not possible for the giver to be anonymous if posting here, so this variation will be run on the principle that names of participants are placed in a hat, and each person is drawn a name for whom they are to find a gift.
Therefore, the way I hope this works, and to add the fun element, is that each HUKD member who signs up for the 2008 HUKD Secret Santa will be allocated another member for which they should pick a virtual gift. Members will not know who has been allocated as their gift giver, thus giving an element of surprise. Also the giver will invariably not know the receiver, so a bit of research will be required through past posts etc. and therefore more fun!
OK so this is how I propose to set this up.
Firstly post here if you want to take part in the 2008 HUKD Virtual Secret Santa.
I will monitor this thread until late evening on Sunday 14th December.
After this point I will have to close the list of participants and set about allocating givers to receivers. I have a cunning plan to make this easy! Each member will be allocated another member to find a gift for, and if all goes according to the plan the giver and receiver will not be reciprocal, that is to say if Member A gives to Member B Member B will not give to Member A, if you see what I mean.
Depending on the number of people wanting to play this festive game, I will either sort out the names and PM each member with their respective recipient, or if the numbers are too high, I would like to share the PM workload with some volunteers.
PMs should out on 15th or 16th December.
Therefore, when you post your wish to participate, please also indicate if you would be willing to do some of the PMs as well. This way, the task will be manageable.
I would then plan to start the Secret Santa Gift Giving thread on Sunday 21st December, where the fun can really start
So get posting and lets see what happens!
BTW Mods if this breaks any rules please let me know
