Assignments have been sent out.
And just to avoid the ridiculousness
>TL NOTE: SPOUSE means WAIFU
>Bonus Cards - Just as they say, they are extra cards that you send out to people. If you feel like going all out on arts and crafts, by all means, go ahead! IMPORTANT: If you put yourself in cards only, it is assumed you will be sending a card to your assigned. You don't need to write in 1 card for bonus cards. Whatever you write into Bonus Cards will be in addition to that card you're sending. i.e. If you choose Cards Only, and write 1 under Bonus cards, you will be assigned two people to send cards to. If you only want to send a single card, then just choose cards only and write zero under bonus cards.
>Wishes - think of it like the Secret Santa wishlist. You don't have to be specific but writing "Anything is fine" is one of the worst tortures in life. Especially against people who know very little about you.
What the fuck is this?
>Assignments have been sent out.
I haven't gotten mine yet, so I'm going to assume he's only halfway done.
It seems like hes sending them out today I guess.
But yeah, the deadline was this past Sunday, so the orders should come in soon.
> deadline was Sunday
God fucking damnit, I was out with my parents for their birthday and missed it.
If you were around for Christm/a/s, then you should have known that Blue was going to set up V/a/lintines really quickly afterwards.
He posted many times about it to let everyone know.
This is the most pathetic shit.
>You don't have to be specific but writing "Anything is fine" is one of the worst tortures in life
Why? Literally ANYTHING is fine.
I just didn't know how quick quick really was. My fuck up, I'm mad at myself for missing it.
And that's why you get Corey in the House DVDs
I would have enjoyed getting Cory in the House DVDs.
>mfw I wrote "anything is fine, since no merch or anything was made for her"
I just want them to make something cute.
Pft, good luck.
There's always next year, /a/non, or Secret S/a/nta 2014 if it happens.
It makes sense that Valentine's exchange needs to get set up and assigned no less than 1 month ahead of the date.
Pft, good luck. Honestly, the concept is pretty silly. If you love your waifu, you should already own all the merch.
Use the Archives next time.
>since no merch or anything was made for her
I have only stuff /a/ has made for me of my waifu, it's really nice actually.
We should all get Cory in the House DVDs.
Also, I never thought I would find someone who actually has a waifu from Kokoro Connect, let alone like the show.
You should send them pictures of your dick.
I'm saying that I doubt he'll get anyone to make some shit for him. The second part is just in general.
It worked for the past two years, it's not like I'm an asshole who doesn't send stuff to their assignments.
I'd give you a blank piece of paper and random keychains I haven't been able to sell for even $1 online.
Still making a profit since I'm not sending anything.
It would be assumed that you would send something related to anon's waifu.
If it was a bunch of random keychains of him waifu, it would be alright.
Doesn't matter to me because it's not a direct exchange. I'll still get something in the mail AND I can't get blacklisted because I've sent something out. I've always sent things for less than my bracket cost to me (but within my bracket range at retail price) and sold gifts I got that I didn't like or want. It's been profitable for me every year.
So is it safe to assume that Secret S/a/nta 2013 is over? Has there been any news from the organizers about people who never got anything or a wrap-up report?
>No new mail
What is this lie, I haven't gotten anything yet.
They aren't responding to my emails. My /a/non's Christmas gift had been stuck at customs since the 17th of December. I talked to him in the threads, and he said customs didn't notify him. Now it is being sent back to me. I paid a lot to make sure it arrived before Christmas too.
From where to where? What shipping service did you use?
Both of the santas have been active with me on e-mails since both of my gifts were late.
Oh heck why not
Final call for filling out the Secret S/a/nta 2013 survey. Tell of your praises & complaints and what went right & wrong for you.
All submissions are anonymous. Your written comments will NOT be published.
Any good input so far?
Quite a few people raising concerns about legit problems (mail tracking, lack of communication, etc.) and suggestions that the Santas should check up on people 1-2 weeks ahead of Christmas or on Christmas date about their status.
And then some people wanting scammers/crossboarders to be screened out (but not giving any ideas on how) and people whose complaints basically boil down to "I'm upset that I got something I didn't like".
From us to uk. I used USPS.
Damn son. So the package got stuck at UK inbound customs and turned back from there? What do you think might've gone wrong, like what you had inside or a bad address?
It was being returned because it was "unclaimed". I talked to the guy a while back in the secret s/a/nta threads, and he said they hadn't contacted him yet.
I-I wrote "surprise me"...
and a request for ammo in additional info
I'm so anxious. Hurry it up, Blue.
Same here, I need enough time to order stuff from Japan because that's the only present route I know of
My /ss/ gift finally arrived! Thanks a ton, LS. That card seriously melted my heart.
I'm not sure what to make of this last item... When I mentioned on the questionnaire that I was a fan of the fluffy tail, I guess I didn't think about everything that might have entailed. I haven't been given something handmade in a very long time, so regardless, I'm grateful for the thought and effort you put into your gift.
Slightly less terrible picture of the card
is it a vibrator or dildo?
Neither, just fabric. Based on earlier posts it looks like it's intended to go on an onahole or a buttplug.
I thought you put them on your belt as a fashion accessory. That's what Japan does anyway.
>assignment is never coming
That's pretty moe anon.
>For those of you in the $50 bracket, you should have received them already. However, you'll notice that none of them have card assignments... That's because ~140 different cards will be made amongst you all and I came across an issue that made it hard to set up properly. I apologize. Right now, I'm focusing on getting all the main gift emails out since they have been arranged. I just sent out the last email of the $50+ bracket and I'll finish the other two brackets after a drop of sleep. I've stared at this document for far too long. For those in the other brackets, you should either see it in the afternoon between 12 and 1, or in the evening after 9p. But they will all be sent out before the 1/16 hits EST, and I'm aiming to get the card recipients arranged by the end of Thursday.
>Still no /ss/ gift.
It's never coming.
