There's no way for the OP to "give" anything to her friends/alts. Contracts are going from player to player with only the OP doing the matching. If you paranoid people would like, perhaps you can all evemail someone like Chribba or James 315 to keep a published list of matches somewhere. But why ruin the fun?

Let's all try to enjoy the Christmas spirit this year without all this negative energy.

I'm still thinking what might make a good present... I'll wait to see who I'm matched with and make it special.



Except, and, this might have been pointed out in the next three pages that i cant be beggered to read right now...

All matches are to be kept secret until after the secret santa.... and the OP is making the matches. So nothing stops her from matching everyone to a limited pool of people. No one will know until after the 25th.

Also, bringing the person accused of running the scam on to defend the character accused of being an alt of hers.... is so, so foolish, in a "lets make this look as legit as possible way"...

someone needs scamming lessons.

Only in EVE would you find such paranoia around a joyous, gift-giving event.

I have some industrial-grade aluminum here, you need a new hat for Christmas?

Add a furry white pompom at the end and trim the edges, and you got yourself a sale.

it is more than fair to call tin-hattery, or over paranoia.... if i had done this in say.... Santa Spirit's thread.... but there is far too much evidence, fabricated or substantial.... that gives me credence to be paranoid of THIS one.... even on xmas.

Kind of disappointing that it wasn't even a scam, lol.

Maybe Chiba or some other 3rd party could do the matching.

If I want to give away some swag I'll do it myself, and not use a scammer to act as middle-man. Good luck, tho... Especially since many will confuse you with the real Santa's Little Helper (of whoever) that actually DID give stuff away in Hek last year.

But good on ya for trying. 2/10

It was a scam, but scammer couldn't scam. Surprising given the other characters the player has.
