Same. I would typically work on this on a weekend morning. I know it's probably a lot to go through and I guess they're just copy-pasting things from the thread into a DM rather than some quick Python script that spits it all out or something? I don't know. But it's getting close for anyone who isn't super-talented (me) but still wants to make something nice.This is making the timing kinda tight since there's only one weekend before Christmas now.
Haven't received anything yet either, dm's should be open, haven't touched that option and received some before.
So uhhh.... It ain't Sunday anymore, I work in the service industry and everyday passed is getting closer to me not being able to participate. I really want to but work is about to get really hectic. Please try and get it out by end of today or I will have to repectfuly drop out.
The spreadsheets are taking longer than expected, and that's on account on pulling an all-nighter. I know you guys don't want excuses, but you are owed an explanation.Same.

I'm sure others have the skill to do this but if it's useful I volunteer to create a tiny little Santa Sign-Up bot that people can fill out and it will create assignments and spit them out. Could have it work in batches so that once a certain threshold is reached it does a batch then people can get started even if it's still the sign-up period. Or Hell, I just volunteer to be a straight up assistant next year and muck in if another pair of hands will help.I think this kind of thing needs to be announced in early November, and closed in very early december......just for future reference.
We definitely needed more people on the distribution end!Or Hell, I just volunteer to be a straight up assistant next year and muck in if another pair of hands will help.
Okay! Anybody looking to help out with distribution, please let one of us know! Your service will be greatly appreciated.Myself, @The Last Stand and @Sammy have all been hauling ass to get our lists out but it was a huge batch of signups this year and we're being cucked by the three-minute cooldown between messages. If I had remembered ahead of time I would have personally mailed Null a cash bribe to remove it, lol. My list has all been sent out but I'll be sending out messages to Santa-Bots soon since we already need a few.
tyvm mr sammy. very accommodatingATTENTION: OFFICIAL MESSAGE FROM MANAGEMENT
TL;DR Version: Please be patient, we have autism.
L;R Version with details:
The Management apologizes for service delays in your Secret Santa proceedings. The Management is not to blame for any of this, nor are any of The Management's decisions in staffing, nor do we blame any oversight The Management may have made in delivery speeds combined with the anti-message spam systems put into place on the forum. Instead, we blame The Virus, and all those damned elves that demanded higher wages and more bathroom breaks during working hours.
In compensation, The Management has made the executive, one time decision to extend the "no penalty drop out" date to December 25th, and the final delivery date to January 1st for this year's Secret Santa proceedings to allow participants more time to prepare their gifts. The Management apologizes for any frustration this change in scheduling may have caused.
If there are any participants who would like to short term enslave themselves to The Management and assist in delivery, please contact The Management @The Last Stand, @MerriedxReldnahc, or @Sammy to apply and be considered as elf replacement.
In closing, The Management understands the frustrations this has caused, and promise "to do better in the future®." The Management has prepared this message to hopefully ease these frustrations, and respond to the outpouring of exasperated participants:
"Your letter has been read fully, and your thoughts have been inputed and accepted for better improvement. Thank you for your time and efforts."
Thank you for your patience, and have a Merry Christmas; your messages shall be delivered soon. We're workin' on it.
