No, but I'd can't wait to try! But I don't know where to find the Secret-Santa-thing .~.

There is not one particular place to find them. They are user-hosted, so you have to find a person or group who hosts one :P

yeah, mine was acombination of exchanges and collaborations. though in this case it depended n so many people even more, since when one didn't do their part, one other also wasn't able too and in the last few rounds it just really got a mess because half of the people didn't draw their part and then didn't even answer me when i asked :/

Ugh, that sucks... Those are the worst scenarios :noes:
In my last Secret Santa I made it a rule that people who didn't draw anything themselves would not get a backup drawing if their person ended up dropping out, which saved some work, but it was still a mess when many people replied late or not at all D:

I was so happy when we had really less problems with the Minkin secret santa, people there where so much more reliable xD
Totally wanna do it again ^^ 
(i actually already asked alex about that- hope she didn't forget xD)

I did a long time ago and can't remember if I actually received anything from it 0:
Also did a taxidermy secret santa on here last year, if that counts, which was super fun. I got to clear out some space in my room and got some neat stuff sent to me :dummy:

Yeaaaaa, sometimes it can be a bit... unequal. The fact that not everyone is on the same art level is fine, but there has to be some sort of effort in it still D:
Especially if you have to wait that long, it should be worth the wait somewhat.

I have participated in multiple, and I hosted one twice. Participating is fun, but hosting is rather stressful, especially because I didn't put a member limit and a lot of people entered, many people were late or dropped out, it was a lot to handle, especially because I had exams at the time... Never again. Or at least, if I do host another one, I'll make it more limited, less people and a more specific theme, with perhaps a co-host :P

so my question has already been answered, I was going to ask if you were planning on hosting one :/
if you do I've never joined/heard of this before though

I might host one sometime, but it'll be a lot more restricted because the "do whatever and anyone can enter" ones frankly became a mess and took ages to wrap up :noes:
