    Phew, the build comp signups are done! But wait, there's more!!! It's time for Secret Santa, everyone!! :D

    Those who are interested should know the following details:
    • To begin signing up, players must write the following information in a signed book:
      • Player IGN (your username)
      • Vote Rank (This can be determined by looking at /vote total and /ranks (or /ranks 2))
      • Items you would like to receive for Christmas (Please be reasonable and open-minded. We suggest listing many different gift ideas to increase the odds of your satisfaction!)
    • To give us your signed book, simply drop it off at the sign up area behind the spawn fountain! The sign-up period starts now (November 30th) and ends on December 6th at 11:59 PM EST (gotta make sure that ain't confusing, lol).
    • We will be taking one day off before the Secret Santa Warp opens! You will be able to receive your designated person's wish list between December 8th (12:01 AM EST) and December 14th (11:59 PM EST). You will want to find the house for your rank (they're in order and color-coded) and the barrel with your IGN on it, and your designated person's book will be inside.
    • Once you've read your designated person's wish list, you will want to place their gifts into their designated barrel! The time period for gift-giving is December 16th (12:01 AM EST) to December 23rd at 11:59 PM EST. If you do not give a gift, your gift will be given to your recipient and may be modified to better fit the recipient's wishes. If something comes up that prevents you from giving a gift, if possible please message me on Discord (Enelis#0608).
    • Staff will take Christmas Eve to prepare, and then it'll be Christmas! Everyone will be able to open their own barrels again and receive their gifts. Yay! Gift pickup will begin on Christmas Day, December 25th (12:01 AM EST), and will remain open through the end of the year! Be sure to pick up your gifts before 2021!

    For questions or issues, please post to this thread or message event staff!

    Happy holidays everyone!!!

  4. out of curiosity, why is the vote rank necessary? am guessing that it makes it so a recruit doesn’t get item requests of a millionaire rank-?
    • Agree Agree x 1
  5. Usually, the vote ranks system is how event staff assign secret santas, and group people by ranks (e.g. veteran gives to veteran and receives from veteran, glorious gives/receives from glorious, etc.)

    Is there a limit to the number of things we can give? Does it all have to fit in a single barrel?
  8. I don't think so, but I remember last year that some gifts had to get switched around and evened out due to some people not getting reasonable gifts.
    Also, you can use shulker boxes and stick them in the barrel. :)

    Yes everything has to fit in the one barrel provided, you can use shulker boxes to hold items though.

    Be sure to grab your assignment as trust to your barrel will be removed today at 11:59pm EST, for gift giving on the 16th.
  11. I’m not sure where else to put this, but I’d just like to give an enormous thank you to my Secret Santa, whomever you may be. The gifts were fantastic and totally undeserved.

    On a similar note, thank you to those who hosted and organised this event - it has been by far the best iteration of SS’s Secret Santa, and that’s solely because of the very apparent effort and time devoted to bringing this server tradition to life.
