HOLY COW, you guys, it's the 23rd already! WHERE DID THE MONTH GO??
This is all important info, so please, take a minute to read it all!
The main Santa reveal starts on December 24th, and (officially) runs through January 1st. DO NOT POST YOUR FINAL GIFT BEFORE THIS. For real, yo ;). Obviously, there's a little leeway on the end date. If you know you're going to be a little late with your gift, it's no big deal. Just, please, let me know before I start scouring the list for back-up gifters. A few days after the 1st, I *will* start recruiting back-up gifters for those requests that were not filled. At that point, I'll post a master list, and everyone can ooh and aah over who had who. Or my mad organization skills. Or both. Whichever ;).
As for the actual reveal:
As of the 24th, there are no more teaser gifts (Awwww!). You should make a new post for your gift (but try to include all parts of it in one post, for the sake of convenience, unless you're posting a multi-part fic). To appease my mad organization skills, it would help if you clearly marked a "final gift for whoever
" in the subject line. Also, it makes finding your own gift super easy! For you extra suck-ups, if you tag the post with the recipient's username and the "2011 gifts" tag, I might just make out with you. Maybe ;).
Okay, I would totally do that anyway. WHATEVER ;).Fics
should be placed under cut-texts, with clear headers indicating rating, pairing, and any other relevant info.
should be placed under cut-texts. Icons are fine, but if you post more than four, please cut-tag the rest of them.
, or other media
should be uploaded to a server (your own, yousendit, whatever). Put the link to the gift in your post, and you're set.
Other gifts, like an LJ-layout
, website layout
, or anything else, is up to your discretion. You can post what the final product will look like, or make arrangements to exchange the code, or whatever will work for the gifter and the giftee.If you will not have internet access during the final gift posting window
Send me your gift at btvs.santa [@] gmail.com. Please include your username, as well as your recipient's. Give me any posting instructions you may have (post this on the 26th, use red font, etc.), as well as any note you may want to include. I'll post the gift, and reveal your identity on your behalf.
That's it, I think. If there are any other questions feel free, as always, to contact me at btvs.santa [@] gmail.com, or reply to this post. If you KNOW now that you will be unable to fulfill your gifting assignment, please let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so I can make the proper arrangements. But, really, try to get your gifts done. It's more fun that way.
You guys have made this so fun so far, and we haven't even made it to the end! Just think of all the love that's going to be flowing around here once Sunday hits. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE PRETTY! :)
Happy holidays, whatever you may celebrate, to all of you. Thanks for being a part of btvs_santa
