[Complete] Secret Santa 2023

Post by JohnPlayerNotSpecial »

Santa Kingswell, what's in the Box ?

Ho Ho Ho. It's time !


Welcome to Secret Santa 2023.


How does it work: Do read the detailed part for proper instructions !

-> Join by sending a mail to JohnPlayerNotSpecial, thus becoming an Elf in Secret Santa 2023.
-> Get a numbered Enormous Freight Container delivered in the Stac Uni Fort.
-> Put some Presents into said Container & deliver back to JohnPlayerNotSpecial in the Stac Uni Fort.
-> You'll get a random Container that isnt yours delivered to you.
-> Done.


How does it work in detail:

-> Join by sending a mail.
Send an ingame Evemail to JohnPlayerNotSpecial with Subject: Secret Santa 2023
What you put as Text is up to you. I might send you some Isk if it makes me laugh :)
It goes without saying that only Uni ppl or Uni alt alliance ppl are eligible ! If you're not your mail goes to /dev/null.
Timing: You'll have until 09.12.2023 11h00 evetime (aka downtime) to send me said mail in order to participate.
-> completed.


-> Get a Enormous Freight Container delivered.
I will deliver an Enormous Freight Container to you in the Stacmon Fortizar (Uni HQ). The container will be numbered, please do not change that number !
Timing: I will try to deliver all the Boxes on the 09.12.2023 after downtime (might take a while so be patient).
-> completed.


-> Put some Presents into said Container & deliver back to JohnPlayerNotSpecial in the Uni Fort.
Gift what you want ! Could be something useful or something funny. If you want to gift "fitted" ships they have to be packaged, dont forget to include the modules & rigs. In the end the only thing i ask for is you do not break your bank but also do not be a grinch ! Noone wants to receive one Tritanium.
Timing: You'll have until 23.12.2023 11h00 evetime (aka downtime) to deliver me your present.
-> completed.


-> You'll get a random Container that isnt yours delivered to you.
I will randomize the numbered participants so you will get a random Box that isnt yours delivered to you in the Uni fort.
Timing: I will try to deliver all the Boxes on the 23.12.2023 after downtime (might take a while so be patient).
-> completed.


-> Done.
Done :roll:
-> we are here.



F.A.Q.

-> Any rules/regulations about present size ?
Nope. Do not break your bank but also please do not be the person who gifts one metal scrap in the hopes for a big present for themself. While i'm not going to check the box contents, i might do some random checks and act accordingly.


-> Do i need to do a contract ?
You do not ! I will deliver the box to you and you'll receive a notification à la 'things delivered to you'. Once you put your presents into your box you then can rightclick the box & select 'deliver to'. That'll save you the 10k for the contract even.


-> What if I am not happy with my present ?
Sorry if your present doesn't satisfy your expectations. But the 250000m³ volume of an enormous freight container being in highsec should squash the hopes of "will i get a carrier ?". In the end we're a newbro corp as in most of the participants do not have unlimited funds, so please do not expect something ridiculous.


-> What if someone forgets to hand over their present ?
If i did not receive a box then that person simply gets crossed out of the gifting phase. Please do respect the timings mentioned above.


-> Are you going to steal all the gifts ?
Yes.


-> Really ?
Jokes aside, i'm not stealing your things. Also directors can simply look at my hangar as it's in the Uni fort. I even offer to stream the delivery phase on a personal 1on1 stream with the higher up of your choice (depending on my TZ that is) where i grab each box out of delivery hangar & do the thing.


-> What if i'm late with my mail/delivery ?
If late for mail you'll not get a box delivered to put things into. If late for delivery i'll deliver your box back to you.


-> Is this an excellent way to scam a free Container ?
Yes.


-> Why not like last year ?
Here's the post for last years Secret Santa. While in theory it sounds better it was a massive pain to keep on top of everything, and then chasing the ppl who didnt send their gifts, etc... This new method guarantees everyone gets a Box and i dont have to be bothered till mid january like last year :)


-> My presents are in Jita/PC9/somewhere ?
Uni Hauling is your friend :) And if in a non-supported location, ask in #uni-hauling on discord.


-> Is "Santa Kingswell" a thing ?
Nope. Wine killed him. Dont drink & fly sleds kids.

edit: more faq answers, timing change for receiving presents (24->23).

Thanks to whoever gave this snazzy Prowler fit! I have stuck Hauler V in my training queue so that I can take it for a spin. :-)
