Okay, first of all, I hope that everyone had a good Labor Day holiday weekend! Summer vacation is officially over and most students have gone back to school or college for the 2019-2020 semester.

Now, here are some great news to hear! :dance: In the first week of sign-ups for the Secret Santa 2019 event, 119 participants have signed up for the event! This is really a good start so far! :w00t:

Right now, the participant count is up to 126 participants! More work needs to be done not just for the rest of this month, but October and through Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 9 PM Pacific Time...the deadline to sign up for this event. :dance:

And now that we're in the second week of sign-ups, this week's participant count (Monday through Sunday) and today's participant count have been reset to zero at midnight Pacific Time and will continue to do so at the end of the day and the end of the week respectively. These figures along with the current participant count will continue to be updated until the day sign-ups closed.



We're now into Week 2 of the sign-up period for this event and I'm willing to open up five new contributors who have participated in previous events and are now willing to help out!

I have invited members who are willing to join this group and sign-up for the Secret Santa 2019 event (and possibly future events if deemed necessary).

I'm looking for active contributors (19 contributors currently, 25 contributors maximum) and possibly co-founders (3 co-founders currently, 5 co-founders maximum) who are willing to help contribute to this group. If you have participated in previous events and are willing to help out, please say so by replying to this journal entry. We are going to do everything we can to help out and notify everyone of this event.



I would like to mention that anyone who has *not* submitted their Secret Santa 2019 wishlist can post it either in this journal entry, group notes or in my previous journal. For the previous sign-up journal, go here: fav.me/ddexk2b

I would also like to point out that we need to do everything we can to prevent any duplicate Secret Santa entries this year or other mix-ups.

If you have already signed up for the event and need to update your entry in the form of a comment, please mention the participant number that I have gave you. The FAQ has been updated to provide this information.

If you have any other questions, please let me know and we'll things sorted out.

Hey there! Thank you for stopping by this group! :D

This is a Secret Santa themed group, the largest on dA. Taken from the FAQ:

Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift.

It it an event where deviants like you draw for one another and get art back in return. Wishlists are anonymous until the day arrives to hand out the gifts and send your gift and receive yours exclusively from Secret Santa! At the Secret Santa Network, we're ready to handle as many gifts that we can possibly get though!


You can read the rest of the FAQ here: * FAQ *Here are the frequently asked questions that have been answered many times before. The rules of the group do follow, so please read up on them.
