Regarding Secret Santas this yearSo far, 2020 has not been a good year so far and we can only hope that we can end this year on a brighter note. I would like to take a moment and address why participation at Secret Santa events is down this year. First of all, the COVID-19 pandemic has put a massive burden on so many lives as some of the deviants don't have the time or energy to participate or organising the wishlist and/or submissions especially due to Draconian lockdowns and/or restrictions in many of the countries throughout the world.More than 50 million people have been infected with this virus and 1.2 million have lost their lives worldwide due to this pandemic. We can expect things to get worse before things start to get better in the months to come. Secondly, the transition to deviantART version 9 (aka Eclipse) and the bugs have also put a burden on interaction with other artists. However, the functionality is slowly starting to improve and a vast majority of deviants have been able to adapt to the new layout without too much of a problem. Lastly, there is a concern that some of the members who participated in last year's Secret Santa 2019 event are no longer active and have moved elsewhere which has been contributing to the decline in Secret Santa membership on deviantART.This is the reason why participation at not just the @Secret-Santa-Network group is down, but other groups on deviantART as well.Now with less than two weeks remaining to sign up for the Secret Santa 2020 event, we can only hope that we will reach at least 250 to 300 participants or more this year as this will be the best record for a event during the pandemic and under dA Eclipse! We can also only hope that 2021 will be a better year to host Secret Santa events...so please, don't give up hope and keep your fingers crossed! If you have any questions or concerns about this journal or if there is any additional information missing, please let me know in the journal comments....
