Backpack.tf Secret Santa


Santa Heavy

Recommended Posts

Deadline for participating is on 12/8/13.

 

Deadline for sending in gifts to the distributor (me on an alt, I will add the participants) is 12/18/13.

 

ALL PARTICIPANTS ADD THIS ACCOUNT - http://steamcommunity.com/id/giftwrap

 

I thought I saw a thread like this somewhere but I searched for it and didn't see it.

 

Basically it'll work like this:

 

If you want to participate just say so below.

 

One user of backpack.tf will buy a gift for another that they think would best suit another user.

 

I will be responsible for randomizing the pairings via randomizer site.

 

Whether or not you tell someone who you have is not in my control.

 

Who you get your gift from will remain anonymous unless they want their identity to be known.

 

Don't be cheap, no crates or regular unique weapons unless the user is into that sort of thing.

 

Do some research, look into your persons backpack.

 

You don't have to overspend, use common sense, be tasteful.

 

Gifts will be given on Christmas Eve obviously.

 

You get what you get, and you can be upset, but nobody will care lol.

 

I will judge the presents sent in to make sure they are fair.

 

If you are using an unpriced item as a present, make sure you have a reasonable estimate as to what it's worth, don't use it being unpriced as an excuse to buy a lame gift for someone.

 

PROTIP: Buy gift wrap if you want whoever's receiving your gift to keep it. c; Or at least make it hard to sell.

 

Using Gift Wrap is optional of course.

Talk with woifi or another mod, get them to make a sticky post and have replies of "Yes I am participating" only or something like that. 

He said he'll deal with in in like 30 mins.

You should probably put a limit in place.

 

I'd definitely be in, except for the fact that i suck at buying gifts....so idunno

Any idea of what the limit should be?

 

If you want to participate let me know.

I'm in if we can skip the gift wrap thingy, it's just wasting a key, or maybe i'm just a horribly cheap person.

Are they sold on the steam market?

 

If so just buy one from there. Tis the season.

 

Skip it if you choose to, scrooge.

Maybe like $5 since then a lot of people would be able/willing to participate; yet still leaves plenty of options of items to buy.

 

As for me participating, aside from the fact that i'm terrible at giving gifts i'd just go ahead and try and sell whatever item i'm given so :3

Wrap your gift with gift wrap because festivity and such. :P

I understand why you'd want us to do this...but many people wouldn't want to spend a key when they don't have to, so really?

 

And I'll participate depending on who I'm giving the items to. Be more comfortable giving them to a mod or a admin and such.

I just realized, theres a problem with using gift wrap: It says who gifted it, and you're not supposed to know who your secret santa is. (So short of having someone else gift it for you....gifting doesn't really work).

I was thinking more so along the lines of keeping who you have a secret until the actual gift is given. But I like yours and alex's idea better.
