Did you know that the last day to sign up for this year’s Secret Santa is Tuesday, November 30, 2021, at 11:59 PM? That means this is the final week to decide if you want to join one of Drunk Duck’s longest running community projects and best “pay-it-forward” community projects!
For those that have signed up, assignments go out next Wednesday, December 1st, so keep an eye on your mailbox for the official Secret Santa swap to happen.
What is the Drunk Duck Secret Santa?
Secret Santa is an annual art-trade, similar to a White Elephant gift exchange, where you sign-up in the forums and write a quick description of what you would like someone else to draw. The request can be as open-ended or as detailed and specific as you would like. Once all interested participants submit their intention to join in on the festivities, names go into a random name generator (or a top hat filled with names) in order to be selected at random.
Please keep in mind that there will only be a window of a little over three solid weeks after assignments are given, so keep requests relatively manageable.
How Secret Santa works:
~Reply to the Networking & Community Projects, Secret Santa thread with your gift request before the end of sign-up deadline.
~When sign-ups close, everyone is assigned a secret random assignment via PQ.
~You will have until Christmas (at least a few weeks lead time) to complete your assigned gift and present it on a gift thread (to be posted later).
~Any gifts not completed by the deadline will be reassigned to a volunteer on the DWC (dead weight committee).
~If you need more time, you will need to contact the organizer (me, I guess) before the deadline or be labeled as “deadweight” and have your assignment reassigned. (Deadweight will not be permitted to participate next year.)
Sign-ups: Now to November 30th
Assignments: December 1st
Gift Deadline: December 25th
DWC Assigned: December 26th
DWC Deadline: January 1st
To participate, reply in the forums with your request (can be as specific or vague as you want). If asking for art of a particular character, links to good reference art/pages are helpful.
Also please let mention if you are interested in being part of the DWC.
Do you have any original art to contribute to our stock image database, announcements, community projects, ideas, news, or milestones to report? Please leave general comments below or send a PQ to kawaiidaigakusei. Email me at kawaiidaigakusei(at)gmail(dot)com.
