I've been wanting to do this since 2005 but I've always chickened out. I'm definitely up for it this year. Best start it early too, based on how previous years have gone.

I might be willing to give it a try, even though I'm not too tight with the community. Anyone care to explain the rules/procedures to me?

Sure.  You're selected as a Secret Santa for JD member X.  You pick out a modest gift and send it to him several weeks before Christmas.  Meanwhile, JD member Y is your Secret Santa and will send you a modest gift which you will receive sometime around Labor Day of the following year, if you're lucky.

If you want to take overseas members, i'm in, if not fully understand.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Don't want to talk for anyone else but I have no problems with overseas members being in the exchange.  I think one of the only real dis qualifers should be no new members of the board should be allowed  to participate in it.  (Just my opinion though, I will leave it up to the staff or whoever wants to run the exchange.)

Thanks to Tom we are going to be able to get a little bit of a jump on this thing this year. :) 

Everyone interested please reply in this thread and PM me your addresses by Friday November 14th. And just to remind everyone that participates, not sending a gift is a ban-able offense this year. We will make sure that everybody gets a gift so there are no worries about that this year. For those unsure of how this works it is pretty simple, we have a sign up list, and then draw names out of a hat, at which point everyone will be assigned another JD member to send a gift to.  Usually it helps if everyone gets their trade list wants up to speed and bumped in the trading/classifieds forum, so your Secret Santa knows what may be of interest to you.  There really isn't a dollar limit perse,  anything in the $5 to $50 is just fine - really whatever you feel comfortable with.  The last few years we have tended to average $20-$30 a gift. Here are the links to the last few years' threads:

5th Annual JediDefender Secret Santa gift exchange

4th Annual JediDefender Secret Santa gift exchange

3rd Annual JediDefender Secret Santa gift exchange

Here's the list so far:

1. Darth Kenobi
2. Diddly
3. Master Phruby
4. Ryan
5. Greg?
6. JediJman
7. Hemish
8. Jesse2
9. Tracy
10. David
11. ?

Keep 'em coming folks!

Just want to add that anyone remotely considering this ought to join in.  I had a great time last year and actually got something that I really wanted to add to my collection.  Happy (early) Holidays!

I'm in again -- I've really enjoyed it the past few years.  It's been just as much fun to give as it has to receive.  :)  I've even had the pleasesure of being on both the giving and receiving end of our Canadian friends. ;)
