Late Secret S/a/nta: I guess I'm doing a late exchange as well.

Late card signups have been opened for a little now. because nothing is quite like getting a card from ano- Santa for Christmas. Please fill out the form and send it off to me at [email protected], signups for cards end on the 30th, If I'm good assignments should be out by the 3rd.

Name:
Full Address:
Amount of cards:
International? (yes/no)
Information about yourself, this part is given to the people who are assigned to you. Feel free to include suggestions, lists, websites, or whatever:

Anything else you need me to know (sent only to me, also end of card form):

I'm also do a late gift exchange. You should be looking to spend around $20 shipping not included. Signups will close on the 21st to help those signed up with procurement. If you are interested, fill out the next form and send it off to me.

Name:
Full address:
International(yes/no):
Wishlist, this part is given to the people who are assigned to you. Feel free to include suggestions, lists, websites, or whatever:

Anything else you need me to know (sent only to me, also end of gift form):

There was some interest in a higher bracket. It's not going to happen for this exchange. My goal is to spread holiday cheer even if you were a little tardy, the suggested spending limit is $20 as to better spread said cheer. Also because some bullshit about reindeer.

Lastly, I'm not associated with the on time exchanges. So make sure your questions go to the right people.

Other than that, let's have a secret santa thread. How are your preparations coming along? Still waiting for SAL?

OK I'm confused. My anon asked for nothing lewd, but then listed a tenga cup and some dojinshi. Is that a yes or a no one the lewd side?

>>133528788
I feel ya I went like $30 over on the $100 and on the $150 I spent another like $30 - $40 so almost $200 and I have 1 more on the $50 - $75 haven't decided yet what to buy for him though.

It's not that bad, you just have to be creative. at $4 are you really going to be upset if you order an abstract line drawing, witty catchphrase, subtle hint, or 6 lines or less waifu?

I hope my assignment is ok with the present being late.

I don't get the money for their gift until next week or so. ;.;

Both your gifts are bought, packed, and ready to be shipped. I'll be shipping them this Friday (Nov. 21), so they should be there in plenty of time for Christmas.

No, I mean I bought a nendo, so I would keep that in its box and wrap that, right? As for tags, on a different thing I bought, it has a tag that doesn't include the price, but I think is important. It's like the tags on plush toys. I'd keep that on it, wouldn't I?

Right I thought you bought two of the same but I get it now. Broken tabs aren't too bad and unless you can get a refund I wouldn't bother keeping them unless you want them fr yourself. You could try to make the best of a bad situation, print out a replacement sleeve cover for the first, maybe something comical. For the second, you could leave it sealed and send it off with a loose tab. Or just open the thing up on one side, take out the loose part and leave a note.

It sucks but you are already fucked either way.

What happens if I don't pay for my order on amiami?
Will I get banned/blacklisted? Can I cancel it somehow? Shipping wasn't included when I ordered it and it turns out it's overbudget, but I still want to order from them in the future
>>
>>133553061
You get blacklisted.
>>
>>133553061
Shipping doesn't count towards the budget and even if the item was overbudget without shipping, you should still get it out the goodness of your heart.
You cancel by contacting them or just not paying but there's high blacklist rate for doing so.

>>133553061
It's not like you count shipping towards the gift anyway. Just bite the bullet anon

>>133553169
No I mean it's actually over budget. I already overspent on him a lot and if I spend the extra for shipping I quite literally will not be able to afford electricity.
What information is put on the blacklist? Name, card number, address, everything?

I don't know, but from what I've heard, they tend to be slightly more lenient if you just write a short, straightforward email along the lines of "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be unable to complete order number XXXX. Please cancel it.

Anons, would you, in your opinion, wear a custom printed shirt if you received one?
>>
>>133555326
No.
>>
>>133555326
If it was suble reference then yes.
>>
>>133555326

Mostly depends on the quality.
>>
>>133555326
My SS last year sent me one and I've worn it several times. Although it's a L when I normally wear M. So if you're going to do it I'd suggest sending Santaloli / Santafaggot an email asking if they can ask for your anons size.
>>
>>133555416
I'm sure just doing a Large would work, right? If it's too big, then it's a comfy oversized shirt.
>>
>>133555440
Sure, rather too big than too small I guess. But ideally i'd want an M.
>>
>>133555440
I'm a manlet so L would probably wear like a dress. Not that I wouldn't mind a full-on dress, I guess.
>>
>>133555381
Okay, a subtle shirt would work
I'm already in the bracket threshold, so this is basically something extra
>>
>>133555326
If it were subtle yes.
>>
>>133555326
Hell yes I would.
Subtle or not. I don't care. It's a gift, and I would cherish it and appreciate it.

Finally, this year I got someone close to me for a card assignment. Whoever has me better be ready, because I'm delivering this card in person and maybe t-treating you to lunch or something? Don't take it a creepy way, I'm not hitting on you or anything, I just really love going out to eat and hate doing it alone.

That's a little creepy Anon.

I'd love it to be honest. Just keep in mind that some people might not be home.
>>
>>133557793
I just want to hang out. I mean, I can bring my 3DS or something, I don't know anon. Please don't bully me.
This concept of working 40 hours a week is killing me, I haven't hung out with someone in years now and I think I'm going crazy just for the off chance of hanging with someone who shares my interests at least slightly. I'm sorry, I'm probably not going to go through with it now, I just realized how embarassing it would be.
>>
>>133555326
I wouldn't look good in it but I don't look good in anything so why not
>>
>>133557848

No bullying intended. The Anon I'm gifting to has the exact same taste as me, which is pretty amazing itself, but he only lives 20 minutes walk away. I was considering including my email address, but I probably wont.

For what its worth, I've met at least 5 /a/nons and they've all been pretty cool. I'm still in contact with them from time to time.
>>
>>133557848
I watched the Madoka movies with an anon so neither of us had to go alone.
... he ended up joining my D&D group.

Not to mention I have one other ss to participate in that I don't have the assignment info yet, there's some Christmas shopping I need to do for the family and I'm saving for a con in January.

Oh well, at least I got into the late cards. If I can fart out money out of nowhere, I'll participate

After how many years, 4? Since the first edition, I missed the SS because I was afraid of it. So many damn memories and all of them are now stuck on a single one that I have to forget. It sucks.
I wish I could be here this year again looking at spoiler tags trying to find my initials or just enjoying the company of the anons that are nice with each other during this time of the year, but well I guess it's too late.
I hope next year I can play with everyone again and leave the shit behind, at least for some cards.

PS: Dorothy Lamb, you could at least tell me if you received my card last year. You didn't send me one and I tried my best to send you something nice, hope you are doing fine.

You guys think it's too early to send stuff out at this point? A couple cards are international so I want to make sure they arrive in time, but the in country packages will probably arrive super early.
surely no one would open their /ss/ gift early would they?

Cards, especially international can go out early. I personally would wait until thanksgiving week for national, but that's because I like having holidays in order.

It's never too early to send cards. Lots of people traditionally open them on the weeks leading up to Christmas and display them.

What's the story here? Anon got sent stuff directly from Amazon without any gift wrap or anything?

Or did some anon just open early and is a whiny ass because they didn't like what they got?
>>
I finally figured out what other gift to get my /ss/ but I need to choose where to buy it from. As much as I dislike TOM I might choose them if they spam my inbox with coupon offers in the next week or two.
>>
So it turned out that despite ultimately deciding against taking part, a friend of mine handled the e-mails and all for me anyways.

So in the end, I won't have any idea about what my wishlist is. I know they have the general gist of my taste though.

They've been sending me three a day since I tried ordering a plush from them - most of it requires minimum spends, buying specific items, or being in the US. They seem like a store only worth using for items nowhere else would be stocking, but even then they're always sold out of anything good.

It's really just a nice change of pace having something to look forward to this holiday season for once. Thanks for signing up and saving me from what would otherwise have been another holiday season of loneliness.

It is called a drawing block here, so I am unsure how it is for your side. Its basically about A3 in size, and usually used for drawing in schools.

But the tree says /a/ Toronto and all the decorations his guests added were anime related, they don't seem like normies at all.

How terrible is the price difference ordering your stuff off of Amazon compared to specific sites like that? I don't into buyfagging and I'm sure my bank would throw a hissy fit if they saw international charges like that.
>>
>>133587028
Just because they browse /a/ doesn't make them non-normies

>>133587165
So if your anonymous gift doesn't go to a friendless virgin it's rageworthy?
>>
>>133587163
Something worth $11 will be $88 and a Chinese bootleg in a damaged box on Amazon. Why would your bank throw a hissy fit? I've never once had any issues, especially because if you use Paypal it's just another Paypal charge.
>>
>>133587213
I think it's moreso just the overall cringeworthy group activity that anon's gift was made a part of that makes it kind of unsettling.
>>
>>133587213
Not him, but the way I see it, it's less who they were, and more the fact that they opened it at a party. The /ss/ is supposed to be a fairly private thing, and making it into a big meetup made me salty.
>>
>>133587163
It depends on if it's a manga/light novel or a figure.
The former is ok, the latter is overpriced or a bootleg.
Just call up your bank if they give you shit for international.

>>133587299
Shouldn't you be happy that your gift is making more people happy? Does the amount of people they open it with really affect you that much?

>>133587524
Look around you. You have 130 friends in this thread.
>>
>>133587348
It's not about that they aren't happy because of your gift. It's mostly just the unsettling nature of what they did with your gift. For example I'm sending out a couple of figures, sure some /a/nons might hotglue theirs. It's not my thing but if it makes them happy by all means they can go for it. But if they post a pic of their handiwork in a thread sometime down the road it'd still be kinda unsettling knowing I contributed to that. Kinda like a too much information kind of deal. Like It's great that they're happy and all, I just wish I didn't have to see it even if it happens regardless.
>>
>>133587163
I just compare pricing with shipping. Right now the yen is pretty low but if I were to buy a figure from Japan I'd also have to add the shipping on top, and I'd probably use EMS which is a little more expensive than SAL. With TOM I have my credit but they're still overpriced compared to the weak yen.

My bank's never asked about any of my overseas purchases but I switch between using a bank card and paypal depending on the site.

I exchanged emails with an /a/non back in the days of nightly ronery threads. It's been about 4 years now and we still talk often. He's the one person I can always talk with about my problems or just anything in general and have a meaningful discussion. Sadly, we don't live in the same country so it's still a pretty limited friendship. You can't expect online relationships to last but it does happen, you just never know, so might as well take the chance.

Also, it's your fault for signing up. You deserve it.

Just making me super jealous, because I'm just recommending things on the person's wishlist that I want.

Mechanical keyboard. Reddit and /g/ go apeshit over mechanical keyboards because they're lovely to type on, the HHKB is like an elder god tier.

I guess it's what I get, reddit is a really cold community. every redditor i know IRL is a huge fag who treats it like he's part of a secret club.
im glad I could make that guy's day though and i can't wait to get matched with new people to gift.

......I'm new to this whole /a/ thing. I've only watched around a 100 full anime series, and only about a quarter of those are more than ten years old. I'm sorry.

I deserved it.

So if I signed up for this shit, I'd be a huge dicknose for going over the $20 cap right?

What's wrong with being new to /a/? I'm barely twenty and living on my own with a stable career. Is a waifu something you can only have one of?

Calm down and stop responding to hostile remarks. It will only make you stand out even more. Just close your eyes.

Thank you. I can't wait.

I'm still in contact with one person from last year. Human interaction takes a surprising amount of time, sometimes hours go by before I've managed to finish writing a mail.

>>133589188
I always end up buying stuff for myself as well so I can feel better about the shipping cost.

>>133588070
I wish I could draw you that punished Santa loli.

I'm sorry for letting you down.

I still have one of my santas on Steam. I never talk with him, though.

1 doujin is typically about 10 bucks new, so 5k bucks is 500 of them. He'd have to buy every single comic from the last comiket, including gay stuff, to spend this much dollars on it.

JM of Slovakia

JayZ of VA
JM of MD

This was a good year to sign up for ss. My anons have fantastic taste and they are getting much more then the bracket.I can't wait to decorate everything like a god damn cake shop.

Yap, I'm as good as grinched. This is what I get for openly asking for fujoshit

Hold on. Are credit cards back up now? Otherwise how did you manage to pay for R-18 items?

>>133591295
500 people signed up this year, sperg
How many people do you think have posted initials so far?
>>
>>133591503
Still down but I'm just going to have them hold it for me so no one takes my loli.

>>133591244
Hope you enjoy your stuff. Looking forward to this holiday season for this event alone, so thanks for helping to brighten up my holidays.
>>
>>133591295
Maybe you got matched with one of those anons who don't post the initials just to screw with their giftees.
