Secret Santa update

    I'm very excited to announce that the old Secret Santa has entrusted me with the keys to the kingdom for the upcoming holiday season. As a long-time SS participant myself, I hated the thought of losing this gift exchange, which is probably my favorite thing about this site.

    If you've taken part before, you know the drill. In November, I'll make a post asking people to send me a note if they're interested in joining. A week or so later, pairings will go out.

    If you've never done it, I really encourage you to give it a try. It's a lot of fun.

    I'll plan to start the official thread on Nov 1 and send pairings out by Sunday, Nov. 16. That gives everyone about six weeks to shop and send.

    Questions? Suggestions? Have at it. Feel free to post here or PM me. Thanks.

    I think it's a little too late for that ...

    Dare I ask who the new SS is? The old one's identity was well known, and I felt I could trust her with my personal info. Some people around here, I don't feel the same way about them.

    But I trust that IJAG wouldn't just pick anyone from the board to run SS.

    You know, it's so secretive, it could still be IJAG.

    I'm happy to out myself -- screen name, real name or both -- to anyone who would feel more comfortable that way. Just shoot me a PM.

    Dammit, you fuckers. I had to come here because y'all don't trust me to make a good choice?

    The new SS is a gem. A gold nugget in this shitshow of a site. He/she is trustworthy and is someone you all would/will/should trust.

    He/she will still tell you if you want. But trust me when I tell you I wouldn't let someone like Vombatus run this.

    Sorry! It had to be said, though, because this place has become a shitshow.

    But what about the kids who got a secret tingle when the old Secret Santa scolded them?
