1st Annual General Discussion Secret Santa

*Please keep all gifts appropriate- no racy photographs please*

Welcome to the first annual General Discussion Secret Santa thread! I will be the event's organizer this year and in all subsequent years. This will work just like other Secret Santa programs, except the gifts will be Eve in-game items or very closely related.

Examples of Good Gifts:

1. A fitted ship
2. Plex
3. Shares in an Eve corp or similar thing
4. Blueprints

Examples of Bad Gifts:

1. 1 unit of nanite paste.
2. A noob ship with 1 trit.
3. A bookmark of empty space
4. Ganking their ship

Everyone is eligible to participate this year. Deadbeat Santas will be banned from future events.

Please X up with the character you will participate with as a Secret Santa. I will keep a list and randomly match people with each other. Santas will contract items directly to those they are assigned. Please keep your Santee (person you are gifting to) to yourself until the gifts are handed out. The person you are giving to will not be the same person giving back.

For example, assume we have 5 players, numbered 1 through 5. Player 1 may be assigned to give to player 3. While player 3 might be assigned to give to player 2, and so on.

Deadline: the deadline to participate shall be December 18th. That will give me a week to assign people to each other and for you to shop in Eve for your Santee.

If a deadbeat Santa is assigned to you, you will still receive a present. We will address any such cases after December 25th.

Once assigned a Santee, you have until the end of December 25th to give your gift.

Let's all have some good fun with this. X up with the character you wish to participate with.

Been ganked? Robbed? Space feelings hurt?  Now there's something you can do! Fill out a Customer Service Comment Card!  EIther that or contact everyone's favorite Space Detective for an instant ban!

This sounds like an awesome idea!!!

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

Sure I'll do this! Someone's going to get a very nice gift this year :o)


See Bio for isk doubling rules. If you didn't read bio, chances are you funded those who did.

Is there a rule dictating where the contracts have to be created?

I will try not to give the gift of ganking.

Even though its clearly a scam.....X.

Also...a little upset that a humble noobship with a gratuity of 1 trit is considered a 'bad gift'....

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Anywhere is fine. A private contract allows you to select a station from any region. Please spend some time to research your Santee a little. It might seem funny to you, but assigning a high sec miner some mining crystals in VFK is not a very nice present.

I just turned into an egg, did I level up? I spent an hour trying to salvage a wreck, when in local a guy said "Stop it, this is my Tempest, I was AFK"
