E4 Secret Santa 2017

Hello! And welcome to E4’s Fourth Annual Secret Santa! This is a site-wide favorite that I know a lot of people look forward to. Every year we have surprises, triumphs, and a whole heck of a lot of community bonding. Let’s all work together to make this year another success!


In order to participate you must:
-Have at least 50 posts
-Have NOT failed to send in a prior Secret Santa event (We have a list and we are checking it twice)

This year the setup is as such:
-There is only one pool this year. The forum has evolved to be sufficiently international. As such, there is not the same need for a US-only pool that we have had in the past. We believe this adjustment will create a more fair system overall.
-Registration will be open for three weeks. On November 11th at 10:00PM EST registration will close. Assignments will be given out the next day.
-Participants have three weeks to come up with their gifts. All gifts should be shipped by December 2nd at the LATEST.
-NEW RULE: Providing tracking is not optional. You HAVE to give me proof that you shipped or it will be counted as delinquency. We were pretty chill about this last year and it caused a lot of issue. Not an option anymore. I want pictures of your receipts with visible tracking numbers.
-Early shipping of gifts is encouraged. Holiday shipping is highly unpredictable. We usually have gifts arriving until late January.
-The value floor is $25. Gifts must be at least this much, but we will not stop those who feel like exceeding that value. Having a minimum value helps everyone feel they are getting out of it what they put into it. It sucks to send a $25 gift and get a base set weedle in return. Be considerate.
-If you are unsure what a good gift looks like, HERE is a link to last year’s photo thread. You can see how well different gifts were received and possibly get ideas of your own.

Some additional rules:
-If anyone is caught scamming through this event, they will be permanently banned immediately.
-No custom or other fake cards. All Pokemon products must be official Pokemon products.
-Alters or atsy cards can be included but should not be factored into the value.
-No cards at below excellent condition.
-All members must include a drawing of a pokemon with their gift. This is not optional. It’s a blast. I don’t care if you’re bad. Don’t be a baby.

How to participate:

-Post here or PM me that you are participating.
-PM me your shipping address, favorite pokemon, and general collecting interests. (General collecting interest should be broad. Saying you like trophy cards is not helpful)
-At the end of registration, I will send out assignment names and info.
-Begin shopping around ASAP.
-Ship to the address provided by December 2nd.
-As things arrive, feel free to post them in the E4 Secret Santa 2017 Gift Photos thread located HERE: (Will Insert Link After Assignments Given)
