Guys, I'm a bit torn. I want to host another Secret Santa event, but I have a problem - see my comment http://comments.deviantart.com/14/4791597/3649471241 to know what I mean. What do you think is best?

Hold an SS only for animal characters (that have at least a feral form) so there are no problems with the matching up or finding backups for people who drop out

Don't host one at all, it's not fair if it's only for animal characters.

What I would do is not limiting it completely to feral characters but to make a rule that you can propose as many of your characters as you want as long as there's at least one feral character in it. So that the one who has to do the SS for you can choose between different characters and if he can only draw ferals, there's always that one necessary feral character.
I hope you understand what I mean. xD

If you do the Secret Santa, i would be more than willing to do a Back-up part and enter it. uwu

First problem:
See, last time I let people make a list of what they could and could not draw (humans, MLP, anthros, ferals, etc.)
But... I really really don't have time to go through all the lists now and to look at who can draw what. I did that last time, but now I am a) busier and b) have more watchers. I'm thinking it might be better to limit the theme to feral animals (that may have an anthro form, but basically, they can be drawn in feral) and basically, anyone who enters just needs to make sure they can draw ferals.
I know that excludes human artists and all, and I'm sorry, but the whole matching up thing is just such a mess for me to do...

Secondly:
Last time two people dropped out, and I had to make their parts instead. As much as it annoyed me, I don't doubt it will happen again. Now I know that some people are willing to do back ups, but again, that might be a problem if they only want things that the backups can't draw - and I would do it myself, if it wasn't for the fact that my exams are right after the Christmas holidays... I really have no time to do 10 backup parts if half the people decide to drop out, my grades are super important. So limiting it to ferals might help there.

I don't know if people find it better to quit it altogether instead though. If so, I'm sorry D:

well just ferals sounds good to me. I mean out there on deviantart are other SS if people want to draw e.g. humans they can join that SS where they can draw humans C:
And if you would need someone how draws a backup I would do it ^^

Okay, so I feel really silly saying this, but I have no idea what Secret Santa is. :s It sounds really good with- well - the art and stuff. XD But if I don't properly understand it, I won't know what I'm getting myself into if I ever want to be a part of it and help or what ever I could do to be in it. Could you possibly explain it to me please? ^^

I've seen exchanges that only allow dragons, cats, roleplay characters, or something group related, so I think a feral-oriented exchange would be fine! ;v;

Ahh, alright :)

Alongside the other two, I would totally go with the "Only feral" ones. I'm sure there are other human ss's going around, that could work with the human side of things ^-^
I'd also love to be a backup, in case someone drops out. I mean, my art isn't the bestest, but it's something ,right? ^^;

I'd gladly accept any backups regarding of art level ^^
