2007-01-12 [The Red Baron]: I'll probably go for something in internal medicine.
2007-01-12 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: That's hot
2007-12-06 [Yncke]: Is there going to be a secret santa 2007? :)
2007-12-10 [Cathos]: I'd really enjoy doing this again. :D
2007-12-10 [Anvikit]: it was fun.. but last year I participated but I guess they forgot to give my name to anyone, so I didn't get any art.. kind of a bummer.. Still fun to draw something for someone else though.. Kind of late in the season to start this now though .. most people don't have much time to devote to art this close to the holiday season
2007-12-10 [SilverFire]: We could always just give people until new years to get it done. :)
Why don't we just create a page and have the sing-up deadline for the end of the week, see how much interest it generates, and take it from there? :)
2007-12-10 [Yncke]: Sounds good to me. With a new year's deadline, there's still time during the christmas holidays.
2007-12-10 [Calico Tiger]: Yeah, I didn't get any art either *sad* We did have a deadline extension for this one as well, but people still didn't get their artwork turned in. I think that's why I'm turned off of doing a Secret Santa anymore, personally.
But I know so many still love the idea. And it could be different this year!
But if you do try it out, stress as much as possible that if the person doesn't think they're going to have the time to finish, to not put their name down. Yes, it's fun seeing the reaction of the person who got the gift you drew them. But it's a bummer when you find out you got nothing. And personally, I'm selfish XD I want to get as well as receive, lol.
2007-12-10 [Yncke]: I can imagine that not getting a drawing is a real bummer, while getting a drawing was really fantastic. (I had your drawing for over half a year as a wall paper, [Anvikit], while most of the times I get bored of my wall papers in less than a month.)
It's a problem that isn't easily solved... :s
2007-12-11 [Anvikit]: :) still had fun :) and glad you liked her :) .. I wouldn't mind doing this again.. if anyone sets it up I'll be in.. :P Considering I just spent the whole night tonight drawing cthulhuie Critters.. I think I could find the time to doodle up a pic for someone :).. As long as my name at least gets put in the hat this time.. I mean some one not finishing is one thing.. Not even being given a partner is like a guaranteed bummer..
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: Do we know who didn't submit art? we could always ban them from entering this year. Of course, we'd still get new entrants who might not submit their art - so how about we have a team of 5 or so 'reserve' artists who don't mind doing an extra piece of art just in case it happens? I know I wouldn't mind doing it...
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: AMG! CTHULHU!
2007-12-11 [Anvikit]: or maybe, if everyones up to it.. do a Double swap.. so everyone gets 2 artists.. and 2 pictures.... so the odds are better that you'd at least get one .. but then every artists work load is doubled.. Back ups are nice.. but who's gonna draw for them?
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: They'll alrady have one drawing, and have drawn one, it's just that in the case that someone doesn't get anything, they'll draw another picture, out of the kindness of their heart. Hell, if no one else wants to do it, I'll do it just myself, because I feel so bad for people when that kind of things happens. ._.
2007-12-11 [The Red Baron]: Question, what if someone isn't versed in the drawn art but wishes to participate?
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: Was the problem discussed last year? And if so, what solution was reached then?
2007-12-11 [Linderel]: Photos or poems were a go. :)
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: Then I guess they're a go this year, too. :)
2007-12-11 [The Red Baron]: Just checking if there were new rules this year.
