OPForum's YEAR 2017 Okay so this is how it works... all the interested members will list the following things in the comments so that your match would get a rough idea about your taste. Though not necessary, it's better to have some details listed. Name : your real name, nick name, username or simply any name you like yourself to be called by. Favorites : things like favorite movies, favorite characters, favorite series, etc. Likes : things towards which you have a liking say food, comics, art, nature, music, etc. Here's something new i'll be adding to this year's event. Challenge i.e. you will list some kind of challenge to your match say 'write a poem on me' or 'draw this and that'... the match can choose to either to make a random gift based on his or her likes, or choose to accept the challenge and do that alone, or choose to do both of 'em. *It's really not necessary for anyone to do as said above, he or she can simply decide to make whatever he or she wants. After all the participants have entered and submitted their information, i'll select matches for each member through spin. Then i'll send the respective members their match i.e. for whom they 'll have to make a gift. *Remember that you in no way should reveal your match to anyone or there would be no point of this event if your match knows who is his or hers secret santa. Here is the schedule showing how we will proceed... 13th Dec 11:59 p.m. est : Registration 'll be closed. 14th Dec 07:30 a.m. est : Members will receive their respective matches. 23rd Dec 11:59 p.m est : Members are expected to send their gifts to this date. 25th Dec 7:30 a.m. est : Members will receive their Gifts. 26th Dec 7:30 a.m. est : Matches 'll be revealed. Things to remember *You mustn't reveal your match to anyone until after Christmas. *Though not necessary, try to avoid revealing your name in the gift you'll be making so as to keep it a suspense. *Send the gifts to me and me only to the given date. So that's that... hope you'll have fun and make this event a memorable one .
