Only a few minutes of Christmas remain.
Glad it reached you safely! Say did the pen make it okay as well? Sorry about the Sayas, I was a little worried it was a little mean but I'm happy you found it amusing.
Just wanted to thank my Santa again for the Shinki, she's everything I could've wanted.
The cookies are delicious too.
At least for the time being this is the only thing I've received, so thanks, fellow Finnbro. (And no worries, it arrived in time)
It'll go straight to my Christmas shelf with the cards from previous years.
>Anon replied to his initials to say he was very excited
>Anon posted in November to say he was waiting warmly for his present
>Anon posted when he received the package
>Anon posted on Christmas Eve saying he couldn't wait to open it
>that was the last I heard from him
>it is currently December 26th
Yay! That was me! I saw it! 90% sure I didn't get some of that though, the bag and chika diary thing aren't mine.
Thanks for the repost, glad to know it arrived ok.
Did the cookies and pies turn out okay?
Well that or he's super disappointed and just couldn't bear to let you know
So far no gifts, and 2 cards missing.
One of the gift santas left me a message that it'd be late.
I guess I wouldn't mind too much, but from what I heard from one of the santas made me really excited about what they'd be getting me.
RNof CA, sorry for the late post, but it's still Christmas somewhere! Damn man, you gave me a lot to open. I appreciate the effort you put in the gifts. Now I have to god damn read books again though, There may have been a lot of Yuru Yuri, but I do love that show, so you picked a good series to base the gift out of. I loved the card you sent as well. I'll hold onto it for a very long time. You make me feel fuzzy inside anon. Thank you very much. Have a wonderful New Years!
4/10 cards received
10/10 cards sent almost four weeks ago
6/10 cards posted on /a/
Not bad, not bad.
I think I'm going to join in next year as well.
Perhaps even gifts so I can spoil anons now that I have a swell job.
Glad you found my slightly colorblind Madoka cute. Merry Christmas!
I don't really even know why I like the short stack goddess, but I just can't help liking Breestia
ARPreporting, I'm so glad you liked your presents! I was worried because you could already have some of those items, but looks like my intuition was right when choosing gifts. I'm also happy you liked the card, my drawing skills are quite poor but I tried my best.
Merry christmas, anon!
but seriously, don't leave the EU
2/2 gifts sent and delivered
1/2 received other one is probably late. No word that it would be late though. I'll wait.
If it doesn't come does it still count as grinched? How long should someone wait to email SantaLoli or SantaFaggot, at least new year's?
NSof UTI received and opened your presents. I love it. You gave me way more than I was expecting. Trust me, I love it. The Toblerone and the Pocky are a nice bonus too. Thanks a bunch!
>we need you to fight the merkel
but anon this IS fighting the merkel
3/3 gifts delivered and posted
2/2 cards delivered and posted
1/1 card received and posted
0/1 gifts received, but my anon promised to send it when he can.
BTW, the number of things sent and received doesn't match because I sent more things than I should. But everything is alright.
TCof NCI received and opened your presents. I like it a lot! You even sent me a body pillow which is nice because I've never had one before. I also like the poster. Perfect idea.
>2 years in a row where I spend over $250 and my gift isn't posted or my anon even posts at all
>1st year where I didn't receive anything at all
Honestly at least letting me know you got it would be enough.
With the obviously higher grinch rate this year and SantaFaggot leaving, I won't be doing next year.
AVof MII received and opened your card. Very creative Idea with the calendar and especially the design for the inside of the pen. A lot of effort for a card, thanks!
2/2 cards sent
1/2 posted on /a/
It was fun and I'm glad the anon who got mail liked it, but no way in hell I'm participating net year. Simply can't trust my country's post office and
and can't trust anons either. Can't blame them, grinching is human nature at its finest..
Unfortunately, it rained where I live and it ruined the part of the envelope with the return address. So I am unaware who sent this, but I appreciate it. I did want a yandere-type card and this fit the bill. Thanks!
Reposting last time, to make sure that every anon has seen these.
Thank you again and I hope that you got some awesome cards too.
With all that, I'm sure this might be the last /ss/ ever. No one would be crazy to step up for this madness and anons can't trust /a/ anymore as the grinching can tell.
Makes me think if there is a specific reason for this grinching surge desu
I'd have to imagine it's due to the surge in normalfags flooding the site, even more than usual. People with no attachment to the board who just see the event as an opportunity to get free shit.
Are the numbers even out yet? We don't know if there has been a grinching surge at all, there's been tons of posts about grinches every year but it never amounted to a high percentage.
The funny thing is that for me, this year's had the highest received/posted. All four cards and the gift were posted, and I received all I should have. First time that's happened.
AFAIK the numbers haven't been posted yet, I hope it continues next year in any case, this was my first year and it went great on both sides, I'd love to take part again next year.
>no gifts/cards posted
>no word from santa
>no reason to live
>Going home today
>Hopefully I have a gift when I get back
I think the entire process could be automated to much greater degree which would really alleviate a lot of the burden santafaggot / santaloli have
although I feel that takes away some of the magic. I also feel there are more potential improvements to be made, maybe pairing previous participants with previous participants being the best one.
posting more gift in next post
>inb4 sending each other North Korean flag and ISISILMAO flag
As much as I think Nazi flag itself would be cool, yeah, that would be no.
>Item went from Florida to Russia to NY
holy shit, this actually sounds better than 90% of the movie we had this year.
I think he means just the database building and emailing once the hands-on work is done by the organizer.
I assume there would still be someone looking through applications for suspicious ones and matching similar tastes, and not simply an omniscient SantaRobot that we surrender ourselves to.
8/8 cards sent, but some maybe too late ;_;
2/8 posted here
It's my first time and way more fun than I thought. The cards I got are great enough to make up for the rest if I get grinched and the warm feeling I got having those two Anons post and comment my card is enough to try a present next year.
10/10 experience, would recommend.
Which is a massive shame, but isn't the whitelist only for $100+? Once the stats are released I'd imagine the grinch rates at those brackets would be really low, but never 0 which is something people will always have to accept. But if the grinch rates falls to an acceptably low number then those that sign up for degrinching will be able to cover far more of the overall grinched anons.
Why not? I don't mean fully automate everything, just the majority of the repetitive work like >>151442548 suggests
Continuing from this >>151434327 >>151433936 >>151433700
I stopped caring about fighting games after SNK went to hell. I liked those girls when I was younger and I thought having high school girl that was smoother to use then Ryu back then was fresh idea. I still don't think I was wrong back then. But even though I still like them, I don't care about fighting game genre as I use to anymore. Fact that Capcom went to hell also has something to do with it, indeed, unfortunately.
To answer rest of the question you asked, to hell with it.
I also preferred Metal Slug over KOF/FF.
For the gifts, Thank you. I am guessing you were my
50~75$ tier. I actually wasn't sure if I wanted to keep that figure on the list but for some reason I kept it this year (I update the figure wishlist annually). it's tinier than I expected! But I still don't have room for it! Can I suffer? ;_;
Also, Erika best girl. You should at least watch HeartCatch Precure when you have chance.
Cheers. Merry Christmas. (or day after)
Checked archives, so far 2/4 cards I sent have been received and the gift I have sent got opened aswell.
Your gift was supposed to have a shotglass aswell but the post lady took it out, saying that I cant send glass. Maybe ill find a way somehow.
Really glad that those who received them are happy!
Still awaiting the gift from my anon, but so far so good.
Belated Merry Christmas everyone!
I love Lilith! Thank you! I'm so putting that on my phone background!
this is where I would put OMGOMGKAWAII and act like a 7 year girl I never was, and then post shit on my Twitter.I love your drawings! Thank you!
Also, yes! All girls are good girls! (But Shinobu is exceptionally good girl).
As for the Laura figure, you didn't had to go that far!
I really don't know what to do with this now.Oh my god. Thank you. Now I gotta make room for more Christmas figures I got. Oh. God. She's beautiful, even though I still hate IS.Thank you for being the chosen few to make my Christmas great. Merry Christmas!
>anon didn't reply to me posting his card+gift
>I lost his return address
>I emailed him but now I feel like I might have typo'd the address
>I lost the piece of card he put his email on
I just want him to know how happy it made me ;_;
Is the reverse side of that yuno vaguely tasteful or lewd?
To my remaining cardanons, sorry for being a horrible, procrastinating santa. I'll send out your cards as soon as I recover from being sick.
Sam Cfrom KY DPfrom Canada
Same goes to my homocard anons:
KOfrom IL DPfrom CA
1/1 card sent and posted
1/1 gift sent and posted
0/1 card recieved
0/1 gift recieved
As far as i know both have been sent, but with the state of the postal system i'm lucky if i get them before new years,
Thanks again B-man.
I hope everything went well for you.
My santas from previous years (and this one is no different) have always showed me great kindness. I'm glad I was able to reciprocate it to you, this year as well.
PS: I hate to beat up on a dead horse, but I just gotta ask you, one last time: Could I please get a nicely framed panty-shot of Roll, in all her glory? お願いします。
YBfrom Germany, it's RC, I hoped you liked your presents and didn't get any duplicates! I didn't see your post but I haven't been following the threads religiously so it's highly possible you made one. Also sorry about my shittily wrapped presents (I'm a spastic and that's actually the best job I've ever done at it) and the lack of a note, I actually wrote one and then accidentally sealed up the box without putting it in. ;_;
In any case, hope you had a good Christmas if you're reading this!
I forgot to mention this but:
That laser pen I sent you.
Do. Not. Under ANY circumstances point it at someone's eye. It emits radiation that WILL cause SEVERE eye damage, if not blindness.
I stole it from the university. It uses AA batteries. Enjoy.
I sent my anon a message thanking him already, but I didn't get around to posting this yesterday.
Thank you ZP in CO! I really do love all of it!
>Send stolen laser of blindness
>forgot to mention
He was so laser-focused on making his recipient happy, he didn't have the foresight to see how his anon could end up with no sight.
MK, you lucky bastard,
Two years in a row you get a big box of suprises.
-Your /ss/ from last year
Also glad you didn't change waifu
>tfw the person you sent a gift too hasn't posted it in the thread
NWfrom Switzerlandif you see this, I hope you got my gifts and that you liked them, p-please I need to know
>anon signed for his parcel
>hasn't posted it on here yet
It's okay. I included no batteries.
Reposting for my SS
RC from Netherlands. Thanks for the wonderful presents!
My folks are driving me back home now actually after looking at potential dogs.
Saw this cute pupper but it isnt seeing eye dog or assisted living dog material.
Saw a really well behaved golden retriever too, but it was on hold for another buyer.
And reposting for my SS
JS from Germany. Thanks again for the great presents! Unfortunately I think the Behelit is broken I tried to sacrifice my dog yesterday but the Godhand didn't show up SM from Finland, did you get to collect your package today?
Oh good, you got it! I was worried it might not make it in time, the Chie fig took longer than I expected to reach me even though it was only coming from Belgium. Appreciate the repost, glad you liked everything!
Everything made it home safely. Thanks to
DG from BC MS from NSand secret anonfor the cards! Thanks JO from BCfor the really good Crab you got me!
damn it, seeing people receiving gifts but having a card with it too makes me feel silly writing over an amiami card
>got email from my giftee
>he wants to be my friend
8/8 cards received
6/8 cards posted
This was a lot of fun. I'm so happy I received all of the cards I signed up for this year.
I guess I'll step up to the plate, I bought the domain santa.moe and put up a pretty basic placeholder site for right now.
The anon with the email bot should email me, I'd like to take a look at it.
Make that his name, Venom anon
Are you going to make us part of some botnet?
Glad you like it, I had much fun buying and wrapping those presents.
>Unfortunately I think the Behelit is broken
>the Godhand didn't show up
Don't do this to me, I almost had a heart attack.
Posting the last thing I got, totally unexpected, but great.
Anyway guys, I just wanted to thank you guys for making this one of the better years. Nothing too ridiculous, as far as I can tell,
thought I haven't looked at the email since the 24th, so I might be totally wrong
Merry Christmas, /a/, it's been a good one.
God bless you santafaggot, thank you for your good work.
Reposting because I'm not sure if you saw in the previous thread, but I'm the anon who sent the cookies!
W-were they really good? Just for future reference, did the cookies hold up well? Were they still soft? Was it too sweet or too bitter? I had people taste test and got mixed results. By the way that taste isn't protein, it's
would you like some assistance co-hosting?
I did actually like them quite a lot.
I have a really bad sweet tooth, and while other people might have found them too sweet, I'm the kind of person who could eat
pure 愛and love it.
Last few calls for
ED Gfrom MII guess. I hope I atleast see the gift posted in the photobucket if I somehow missed it ;_;
Still hope you enjoyed your gifts!
You were the most glorious of faggots for all these years
Thanks, but I have the hosting down
it's what I do for a living
Just an anon trying to keep the holiday magic alive for the future.
You really are a cool dude. I don't think I could ever take the stress of organizing something like this. Even at the low level of 80 I think you said last year.
>Even at the low level of 80
I wish sometimes. As long as I've been handling it, it's never been below 300.
You should probably email me and/or hold off on stuff ATM, since I haven't put any thought into how the transition is going to go, or who I'd like to see take over, but I am glad to see enthusiasm.
Email me, though I'd prefer if you waited until after new years, since it may just be shipping issues. I've gotta step out for a bit, but I'll get back to you when I get back.
Thanks a bunch
JDfrom OH. B-but anon, he's already top-tier husbando material and I've fallen for him!
>2/2 cards sent
>1/1 gift sent
>1/? cards received
>0/? gifts received
Just happy that /a/nons who got their cards are happy.
JZfrom MI, hope you got your gift in time. If you've posted it in previous threads then I probably missed it on accident.
Glad to hear you recieved and enjoyed it. Not to mention there wasn't any overlap with the other anon given how scarce merchandise is for her.
Was a bit worried, though. I had some relatives in the area say some of their packages were swiped from their porch even though they live in a gated community. Regretted not requiring a signature just in case, but all is well now.
>it's never been below 300.
Oh damn, could have sworn I heard someone say it was really low at 80 last year. Guess it was someone talkin out of there ass or it was for something else. Either way that's crazy.
Also thank you to
JPfrom CA, you absolute madman. Paying $22 for my card to arrive the day before Christmas in a large flat rate envelope truly embodies the spirit of Christmas. Yukari is best girls und panzer girl too, good taste anon.
I like taking cocks on the side but I don't come to /a/ posting pictures of cocks or talking just about cocks. I keep that to myself because I come to /a/ to talk about anime and manga because this place is for anime and manga and there's places for me to talk about cocks and go crazy about how much I love cocks, but that place is not /a/. Don't bring unrelated shit someplace that's something in specific. When in Rome do as Romans do. Simple as that.
You have introduced to me the desire to collect more plush Touhous. This one is just too cute. I have a perilous journey ahead of me.
Love the fig, it expresses the energy of Yuzuko really well. It's a shame we never got more than garage kits for the rest of the cast, though.
>getting butthurt over a reaction image.
Wew, that's a whole new level of autism I never thought existed.
You better get her out of that bag. She's had a long journey and deserves a hug that isn't impeded by plastic. Y-you do intend to hug and show affection to your softgirl right?
Late post because my camera was fucked up but here is my gift from GA anon. Really excited to get the wall scroll of my waifu and the Shimikaze with the lewd backside.
I am glad you liked it anon and I wish you a merry xmas and happy new years as well. I also thought bout it being to much yuri since I really wanted to make you a nep basket however I couldn't find you a daki that wasn't bootleg so I didn't go for it. One more thing since I don't see it in the picture the envelope came with a small little charm so hopefully you found that to.
Hey, that's my gift. Glad you liked it man. Collecting Touhou fumofumos is actually pretty alright if you don't mind not having like the first 20-something of them. Around thirty dollars a pop every few months is fair compared to the slippery slope that is figures.
Good shows not getting figures. That, too, is a part of life, anon.
I hope that you had a Merry Christmas, and I wish you a Happy New Year to come.
Maybe she wants to stay in the bag where it's god damn clean and not exposed the dust, dirt, and wear of this Earth. Maybe he should ask how she feels about it first.
Automating the email to database stuff seems fine, but an outside website seems really risky, you just know its going to get posted to random places. It's better to keep it harder to find.
Actually, I found the charm after I took the picture. It's cute anon. Thank you very much. Your efforts are appreciated. May you have yourself a wonderful finish to this year and a gorgeous year to come.
Pretty low. The anit-grinch squad are anons who want to make anons happy.
I'm on the anti-grinch squad this year.
>Maybe he should ask how she feels about it first.
If she wants to stay that clean you can always keep her in a nice case and just cuddle sometimes.
Glad to hear it!
>The anit-grinch squad are anons who want to make anons happy.
But grenches can sign up for it too. Wouldn't the anti-grenchers have more grenches because they have nothing to lose compared to an honest anon?
First timer here. Damn I should've joined much sooner! This is easily the best christmas since I was a kid. Thanks
GVof NL. I love everything you've picked and the drawing is cute! I absolutely adore the artbook / magazine. The 10th Anniversary TM stuff is gorgeous. Having that and the Aria manga is actually giving me the incentive to pick up moonspeak. Not to mention the Rin fig. Damn good taste in figs my friend! Thanks again so much.
To the anons who sent cards.
RPHof Canadathe Hanekawa cover is stunning. There's really not much to say other than that it's really really nice. Definitely going to stash it safe and treasure it.
To the french anon, thanks for the stickers! The capitalism yotsuba is definitely my favourite. I should get an investment portfolio just to stick it onto the folder :^) Also the tachikomas are great!
Haachikuji is acceptable.
And last but not least, unknown Mushishi anon of canada. You're waifu a shit too!
Also merry christmas and I hope 2017 will be a great year for you.
Thanks to all of you /a/nons so much for being this great of a bunch.
>Didn't want to join because I was scared of being grinched and stuff
>Now see all these people getting gifts and cards and I'm mad jelly
Should I join next year? I'm seeing that the organization is seemingly changing and that makes me uneasy.
>I like taking cocks on the side
>Would you like cocks with that?
My idea with a site was so that there was something form based to submit into, rather than scraping emails which could get really fucked up if someone doesn't follow the format correctly.
Anyways, I'm waiting to talk to Santafaggot and see if he just wants me to fuck off or whatever else.
Sorry I just threw myself out there anons, I just want the Christmas spirit to continue for years to come.
Given how many Touhous there are, fumos is a much more reasonable path than figs. I'll still indulge in both, I can't help it.
And right back at you: I wish you a happy Decemberween.
>rather than scraping emails with could get really fucked up if someone doesn't follow the format correctly.
Santafaggot and loli have been doing that for years. And I'm certains tons of people have also done what you said and they didn't give a shit and kept at it.
Keeping it manual is part of the charm and ultimately also gives trust. You can run all the programs to ease up your load privately if you want but setting up a website is dumb for tons of obvious reasons.
Like, say five anons sign up for /ss/
>three honest anons
>one honest anon signs up for helping grenched people
>both grenches do as well because they don't care anyway
I guess they would have to confirm they're sending a gift anyway and I figure most grenches probably make a throw away email. But then there may be a few people who just want to watch the world burn.
Sorry about the
drawingI've tried so hard but her hand came out wrong.
I'm glad you figured it all out with the delivery company.
Hopefully you had a wonderful Christmas.
Almost wanted to keep the TM :3
Stay warm /a/non.
Tastefully censored so your virgin eyes are not soiled.
This is /a/, you are gonna get shit thrown at you until you can prove that what are you doing works, and even then you are gonna get blamed for anything that may happens later.
Do what you think it's best and keep it up, we need more doing and less criticizing.
The santas tell you to send them an email formatted a specific way so you can be put into gift tiers.
They send you assignments in your tiers for how many people you want to buy gifts for/make cards for.
You buy gifts/make cards and send them.
Anons open and hopefully post your gifts on Christmas.
>You can't say the food is shit unless you are a 5 star master chef!
>Do what you think it's best
Except no. The having a website option has been suggested and attempted a bunch of times through the years and no one has ever liked the idea and as such never attempted because there's no way it'll ever go right.
But hey let's just make the website so that reddit, tumblr, twitter, facebook and more share it around and join in. That'll be happy happy and merry amirite?
Nah, there is little difference between a mail system and a page that helps you sign in.
If you are afraid that your sekret club will leak somehow it would be the same risk as sharing SantaLolis mail.
If you are worried about spam and lack of filter or something, a form filling page would only ease the labor of the organizers, they would still receive that information and work with it, just easier for everyone involved.
>been doing that for years
Which is what I was kind of wanting to get at, I imagine it had grown by a crazy amount over the years, and it's hard to keep up.
If it obvious that people don't want me to do it, and they don't trust me, I'll fuck right off.
which seems like it's the way that it's going
In the end it's all up to Santafaggot though, I'm not going to subvert an already working system.
I doubt anyone would take the time to do that.
Even then, I assume whitelisted anons would be allowed.
>one vocal shitposter
>a few constructive criticism
>already bugging out
No offense, but it was probably meant to be.
Anon from PA.
It's raining here and apparently your card got caught in the crossfire. I'm sorry. Thank you for the trippy card and reminding me of my
mashimaro(s) are cute. Hope you have a nice new year.
Yeah, I was a little hasty on it, I definitely realize my mistake.
I'm not meaning to sound like I'm bugging out. This entire event is trust based, and my first few posts were, admittedly, hastily thrown out there. I'd much rather bow out if that is what Santafaggot and the majority of the anons want, than fuck up the entire event because I was a bit of a faggot.
I just received your card, thank you very much!
You did well, Shimamu the qtest! I'm sorry of getting you into idolshit,
truth is I regret nothing.Thanks you for the postcards, they look great.
Merry Christmas anon!
BWfrom Wickford UK.
First, I must apologize because you must have waited this post for a long time (as I was waiting feverishly the ones from my assignments (only one came for the moment)).
Second, you may feel like a failure, but remember that from all my secret santa, you're the only one that managed to send me something. I'm still waiting for the others ...
Then, on package itself, I must say, it feel really heartwarming that someone put so much effort in something for me, you managed to put everything I liked and for that I'm grateful.
As I'm writing this, I'm drinking the tea you sent me. It is great, as the gingerbread (it would be almost sad to see that most of you're drawing didn't survive the journey, if it wasn't in such a funny way).
I'm quite sad that I forgot my Saint Gloriana mug at work, I could have drink Darjeeling (best girl) inside it.
And for the wheat. Well. I suppose I will have to wait another year, in the hope that this time, in the heart of winter, a wise wolf will enter in my house in the appearance of a beautiful and witty ladywolf (;_;).
Your card was really nice and cute (Izetta herself is really cute, too bad her serie wasn't as good as I expected).
For the second part, I will be away until the first or second of January, so you will have to wait until then for an update. But I'm really excited about what's coming next!
To end on a positive note, I would like to tell you that you're the best "incredible failure" that happenened in my month. I'm really glad I participated to this secret santa because of you (even if you're a perfidious Brit).
Thanks again for everything.
PS: I can give you my email address if you want to talk about lewd stuff (or anything really).
You're too worried about all of that
which, admittedly, is probably a good trait to have for running this sort of thing.We're just saying that despite some things being done the hard way, there might be good reason for it.
For now it might be best to relax while this year's event is winding down and just get in contact with the current santas.
To the folks who sent me cards: Thanks for brightening up my Christmas. Took on too many secret santas and extra work days this December so I'm really burnt out.
I'd like to craft a more personal response when I get home from work. Posting it now just in case there won't be a thread.
I got grinched so far.
Regardless, I would urge you to sign up for the anti-grinch squad, that would be the most efficient and safe way if you want to make an anon happy.
I'm sure there were noticeable issues while watching it, but when I think about it afterwards I can't really think of anything other than they didn't animate much of the performances.
>sent out 2 gifts
>neither one have been posted.
Sent SantaLoli a mail at
They will give you the info of anon who didn't received anything this year so you can send them a treat.
I am very fond to their lack of CG.
I'm concerned that a few of my recipients didn't get their cards. I got tracking numbers for everything I sent out, and it says they were delivered, but I worry the cards were stolen or just never reached these anons.
Should I email the organizers all of my tracking numbers, so I won't get blacklisted next year?
Yea CG rarely looks good in anime. The only exception that comes to mind is etotama.
Damn that sucks, but explains why my card hasn't been posted.
I think the blacklist is for those that didn't send gifts, not cards.
Pretty sweet that you were able to find some Aria goodies. And I'll definitely enjoy being able to watch/read stuff from bed with the tablet, my house is cold as fuck with no heater.
Thank you DD of CO!
And don't forget you're here forever.
Thank you again
CSW of OK, DMO of TX, and RN of CA expect a thank you card from me soon
These are fucking beautiful. Thank you so much
Milk I was so captivated by your art that it took me a while to notice Araragi's D.
I really feel like I stole them from you. Thanks again, homodachi.
artB? This is the card I sent him last year.
Me too, I'll probably take the duplicate to work so I can have on my desk to look at every morning
But they are my special gifts from my Santa.
maybe we can work something out
Drank that awesome beer while listening to the album, thank you
RDfrom WA!! Now it's time to rewatch Yuyushiki. Merry Christmas everyone!
RL of PA here.
Love the best girl wall scroll! Snek mouse pad is neat too!
Remember, cyclops a shit. Harpy best girl.
JR from NY here
holy shit anon you really went in on this shit, thank you!
I've been wanting something like the gunbuster gunpla for a long ass time. Who knew you'd send a fucking sword though.
Also not pictured here is the other half a pound of jap candy. Can't wait to use that toothbrush.
PR from FL
please post your gift, I'm getting scared ;_;
Thanked the person, but realized I never posted his card. So thanks again
RR of MB.
I had a hard time packing up the sword to send to you. I think I might have to buy one for myself.
It's really fun to swing around. I may or may not have hit my ceiling with it.
The Gunbuster gunpla I sent you is the same kind that I got last year. It's really high quality and comes with a ludicrous amount of attachments. Not much assembly required either.
Also, you have it on my /ss/ honor that nothing lewd has happened to that toothbrush.
Enjoy the candy!
Also thank you for the incredible card. The art is great, and the berserk link is much appreciated c: I forgot to mention how great you are at wrapping things, too!
You seem like a really cool, nice guy, anon, I would definitely watch kill la kill with and translate doujin for you. Thank you for all the great stuff!
I'm really really happy you received them.
And happy Araragi's ahoge is intact.
at a certain point I knew I'd have to draw some of his peen with how I had him hunched over, hopefully not too lewd for you.
I like them the best , I'm trusting you to take good care of them!
Thank-you anon for having such good taste.
And if you have a scanner please if you want/get the time scan them and send them to me! We can also pen pal or whatever if you ever want <3
Boys go topless all the time anon. Maybe it's you who's lewd.
Yes, this was my first time participating after wanting to do so for a few years, but always ending up unemployed/broke around christmas.
I think posting initials really helped with quelling any fears about grinching, but I understand wanting to keep anons in suspense for a big christmas surprise.
So it turns out my anon also added a bunch of cute idol cards replicas on the card!
Somehow I missed them when I opened the envelope, thanks a lot!
As well as a handful of stickers, thank you!
I hope you had a Merry Christmas you fantastic fucking faggot. And especially an amazing New Year where ever you are.
>people not sending all the cards assigned to them
This is serioulsy disgusting. You people CHOSE the fucking ammount of cards you wanted to send. Not sending gifts is bad enough but preventing people to get a piece of paper you can make in 5min even if you're the most untlented lazy bastard is an insult to everyone who dedicated themselves to make others happy.
Fuck you guys, really.
if we do make the changes, i vote something like this
>threads can only be made by hosts, any others mods should delete
>whitelists are previous participants, not a bracket
>whitelists should be paired with one another. it also prevents getting grinched for years in a row
if a site is made (im down for easing their load)
>password required, changes every year. some /a/ meme or some shit. hosts decide.
>mentions of the password gets saged after
>the automator does the initial work of pairing, but is given a thorough look over by hosts.
or something. i tried appeasing to every side. if i missed anything lemme know
you are a returning participant, yeah? if so, i dont mind you taking place is santafaggot and santaloli say so
I can see a lot going wrong with that.
Why not use a google sign up form like /k/ does? Anon are gonna bitch about singing up with an e-mail but heck it's the same when you use to mail santa loli.
Last cards came in, no presents yet, maybe tomorrow.
GBof FLand JAof TX!
It's pretty lewd on the backside.
I'm happy to see the post! I feel relieved now.
I was worried that there would be some overlap, but I guess I got lucky. Oh and I was there when they delivered my package, so it never even stayed on my porch.
What would a site even achieve? A bot that scans through and matches up emails would have about the same result but would be entirely organizer-side only and reduce the amount of cancer drastically.
Just see the ammount of people who didn't get a single fucking card. I can understand gifts being late but there's no excuse for cards being late other than people fucking grinching the fucking cards.
I saw you were in thread last night
that /k/ post killed me
You don't have to post pics since I know you're busy with /k/'s ss, but did you get a gift from
a CA anon?I just wanna make sure it made the trip.
I hope /k/ is doing okay this year. I lurked for half a second and saw some animu and handguns.
fair enough. just trying to look out for everyone
dont know much about /k/s. details?
maybe i dont. im stupid. but i think more likely i just didnt explain it right
I had a fantastic experience. 2/2 gifts sent and received. 3/3 cards sent and 2/3 cards received. I hope I get the card I'm missing in the mail, but if I don't it's not a big deal.
The most disappointing thing about these threads is that nothing happened this year. Gift giving and sending cards is wonderful but without a big event for everyone to jump on, these threads fly by without anyone taking part besides the REALLY nice gifts.
Alright guys, it's that time of year again. I am accepting requests.
As usual, my criteria is going to be vague as fuck, but I guess, send me your address, what kind of scarf you want, and/or your tastes, and (optional, but highly recommended) what you'd be willing to exchange. In the past I've exchanged drawings, paintings, glass stuff, random presents and homemade food.
I always do at least one complete freebie, usually more if something inspires me in particular.
My email is
Thank you very much AR of SC. Your presents were very pretty and sparkly. I just got back from visiting family, and I couldn't wait to open your gifts!
Requests aren't 100% guaranteed to be accepted.
If I did say I was working on it, please let me know, since I accidentally deleted most of my email sometime in the spring, which wiped out most of the requests.
Oh right. He still got an /ss/ by being butthurt enough in other threads. Is Santafaggot gonna pass on the blacklist so he stays out? And while the new guy is at it, ban Toronto.
The times after the bankruptcy were dark times for SNK. At least they seem to be trying after their recent rebranding and the way they're handling KoF XIV. I hope things go well for them.
>I also preferred Metal Slug over KOF/FF
Fug, I like all of the games mentioned, but Metal Slug is truly where my heart is when it comes to games.
I'll give HeartCatch Precure a try as well as some of the stuff on your list that I haven't seen yet. Maybe in doing so my taste will get a bit better.
isnt there a pastebin or faq on this /ss/ thing i am new here and want to do this since all i got this year was shampoo stuff nuts and beef jerky even though xmas is also my birthday for my whole life.
Holy shit. I love my gifts! I love everything you got me, even the little shot glass. Thank you so much AR of SC.
Also, your glitter got everywhere. Everywhere! So no matter what, I'm never going to forget this Christmas because I'm always going to pick up your glitter.
From what I saw this year, though, outside of obnoxious shitposting in the threads leading up to Christmas because of past events, he delivered his gift and had one delivered to him without much commotion.
will be posting when it comes around again next sept in that case. i can do card drawings and I hope to send some figmas or send a Dakimakura but ya sorry for rambling off on my own as I'm new to this. will be lurking and spot posting /a/ until sept
Biggest event to me was Eyepatch-kun. How he was ready to get his eye taken out on Christmas eve, got convinced to get a 2nd opinion, and now his parents are getting him a dog
>someone saved my doodles
oh geez, wasnt expecting that
maybe ill make more when i can. i can never think of anything to draw anyways
Basically a doctor said it should be removed so he made an appointment for dec 24th. But anons convinced him to get a second opinion, and that doctor put him on some kind of medication. And his parents decided to get him a dog to cheer him up and help him deal with things.
This is what I can remember:
>He was posting about /ss/ shit then casually mentioned he was going to have one of his eyes removed on Christmas Eve
>anons ask for more info, he said he was having intense pain for a week and had to leave work
>Eye doc told him that wearing contacts infected his eye to the point where they would have to quickly remove it, and they had an appointment available Christmas Eve 10AM
>Eyepatch-kun accepted because he thought he would be lonely and have no plans
>anons tell him that's fucked, and ask more questions
>Eyepatch-kun goes and gets a second opinion. Gets pain killers and stronger antibiotics
>Parents visit him, offer to get him a doggo for company and to help him around the house, he accepts, now is looking for dogs
>no ill effects whatsoever
As if you can actually tell.
Keep doing it anon. I'd rather people suffer.
Your eyes will totally be healthy long term and will suffer no adverse effects as you age. :^)
>No Pictures in the Photobucket of any of my gifts or Cards
>No picture in the Photobucket of my gifts and cards
>Email that gift /a/non sent doesn't work
I'm Feeling lonely this year
Hope everything arrived on time
Holy fuck. I hope his christmas was okay
and if not, I want to give eyepatch-kun and his dog some love
Eye anon here.
I'm back home, and am on paid leave from work for a few weeks. Mother is staying with me since her job has a shut down period in december.
My medicine gives me huge migraines, but my eye doesn't hurt. Currently it gives me a very blotchy vision where I only see about a fifth out of my left eye.
I'm seeing the other doctor again this wednesday for an update to see if the medicine and such is working. Having some talks of maybe some sort of cleaning of the eye with a surgery and lasic afterwords might fix it. Not sure how it'll work out.
>I have OC
Man, I should keep an
eyeout for this stuff.
My tastes aren't great. Definitely avoid
Kancolle, Infinite Stratos, and God Eater: the Animation
Do watch Tsugumomo when it comes out soon. You'll likely like it. There's also manga scans, they're fun to follow
I really like it, and that's the most important thing. Thank you.
My spouse does not, but who cares
Going to post 2nd to last tonight.
I did not get my 5/5th yet. I think Anon said it'd be late.
Also, all my giftees, your items will be mailed tomorrow.
I'm hoping to. Worked today and got work tomorrow also, unfortunately. I have money but don't get time to ship shits now. Somebody save me.
2nd opinion is important.
At least you were also with your family.
The gifts i got where worth more then the bracket i was in and the New game art book was the one art book i wanted the most this year considering i almost bought it myself. And i love the nendo even if i haven't seen the original Love live.
I come from a poor family so this was the biggest gift i got this year.
To be fair though, some people actually make an effort for their cards. It's not something you can do in 5 minutes.
I cut it really close, maybe even slightly late with the cards because they just weren't good enough.
Not that I'm saying it's excusable, but to say there's no way a card should be late while a gift could is just flat-out unfair.
You can make gifts in 5 minutes too, so it's not like that's a valid claim either.
My mother had stroke in her eye veins two years ago. They called the condition BRVO. They said it was critical and she may not recover fully, worst case she loses vision. I know how that entire trip feels.
She also took few shots and then got lasered, with high blood pressure management therapy.
was some 240/180 pressure when we shoved her in the ER.Fortunately, she actually recovered to about 90%.
Don't lose hope, Anon.
In Spain. I sent from America.
It's been there in customs weeks and weeks and I'm just pissed.
I was told it would be "walked straight through customs" by the shipping service.
Sent out one gift and two cards. Got one card in return.
The two Anons who received my cards seemed happy and shared them on an older thread. That more or less made it worth it for me.
Thank you for the body pillow, Santa! I'd love to get you a thank you letter but atlas you've given your north pole address, could I email Santa Loli to get your details?
But I must say, I was unprepared for this gift, he is one of my favorite characters but I don't have a husbando yet. Gomenasai, I am unable to sleep with him without blushing. I am not ready so I've place a plain body cover over him before I slept with him last night.
KO of IL, you are most certainly going to get a thank you card! I love the lanyard, ate the chocolates, reread the manga during this holiday. But most of all, I've displayed this Slicing Simian card with the rest of my Sam Flam alter.
I also received another copy of the Magus Bride from Amazon without a note from my S/a/nta.
Thank you for this gift as well I can put this in my display case!
All in all, I've received 3/4 gifts, and saw 2/4 gifts posted but got 0/3 cards. All in all as long my assignments got their gifts and I receive at least one gift, I'm happy.
