(a brown gingerbread house with frosting. a red mug with little hearts, flowers, and whipped cream with sprinkles. the text reads "FAQs.")
Do I get to pick my match?
No. Your name will go into a pool of names with everyone who signed up at the same financial tier as you did. When matching time comes, you will be paired randomly with someone from the same tier.

When will I know who my elf is?
Your elf will contact you at some point between December 3 and December 5 with your match and additional information. Please be sure to only send gifts to your elf!

Do I have to reveal myself to my match?
No. If you do NOT want to be revealed, make sure to choose the "Remain anonymous" option on the sign up form.

Can I change the information on my form after I've sent it?
Yes. Please PM @Argante with your changes and I will edit your form accordingly.

Can I sign up for more than one tier?
No. You may only submit the form once, for one tier. If you try to submit more than one form, any extras will be deleted. If you want to give to more than one person consider joining one of the events in our links section!

Can I update my wishlist throughout the exchange?
We ask that you do your best not to spoil yourself too much during the exchange -- let your Santa do the spoiling! Frequently updated wish lists can make shopping difficult for your Santa. If you must make an update, please notify your elf so they can relay the information to your Santa.

How do service gifts work?
Services are considered stocking stuffers, and will not count towards the value of your gift. Please offer these carefully!

The SSE does not ensure the completion of these services (ex. if a dragon sent for leveling ends up never returned to the owner, there is nothing we can do to assist in the recovery of the dragon).

If a Santa offers ex. a leveling service and ends up unable to complete the gift, the dragon(s) must be safely returned to its owner (without unrequested changes ex. breeding) in order for the Santa to participate in future SSEs.

What is a grinch?
A grinch is a user who does not turn in a gift, does not turn in their gift on time, or fails to meet their tier minimum. On the latter, our elves work hard to inform users of their gift value and will offer ideas as needed.

What happens when someone doesn't receive a gift?
Participants who give a gift but do not receive a gift will be enrolled in a rematch pool. The pool and our elves will provide a gift to keep their holiday special, even if it does arrive a little later than expected! Rematching takes place immediately following the exchange, from Dec. 26 to Jan. 12.

Why were rematch Santas removed?
We greatly appreciate everyone who has offered to be a rematch Santa in the past! However, we have consistently been able to gift those whose partner didn't come through in-house, and we want users to be able to spoil their match without fear of later needing the funds.

Gifts meant for grinches will automatically be added to the rematch pool. This way, every Santa "pays" their part (turning in a gift), even if the items end up going on a bit of an adventure.

That said, if you'd like to give to the rematch pool regardless, please send any donations to Argante. Thank you!

What is the rematch pool?
When a Santa turns in a gift that ends up being for a grinch, the items are added to a pool of items for those who did not receive a gift because of their grinch. The elves then work together to assemble a gift for each grinched user, using items from the rematch pool.

This does not mean the grinched don't have their wishlists considered! The elves donate better suited items to the pool.

What if I don't like my gift?
Elves are instructed not to send out any gift that does not meet the requirements for the event. We've included an option during sign ups for users to provide a detailed wishlist. Fill it out thoroughly and give your Santa a good idea of what would brighten your season.

However, we cannot guarantee that you will love your gift. Please be grateful for the thought and effort put into your gift, even if it isn't exactly what you were hoping for. Anyone seen complaining publicly about their gift will not be welcome to participate in the future. Thank you for your understanding!

Will there ever be a 1mt/1kg tier?
This has been discussed in-house for a couple years now, and we continue to believe that 500kt/500g remains the best maximum. This is because a 1kg tier would (most likely) effectively become a gem gene swap. Mid-tier items would also be more difficult.

Will users ever be able to mark themselves as intending to spend over their tier, so they can be matched with one another?
What users consider "over the tier" is subjective, and we firmly believe users should partake in the SSE expecting to receive their tier value and no more. We love when users have an Santa that spoils them far beyond the tier, but the tier minimums are in place for a reason.

You may put whatever you'd like on your wishlist, but please keep the tier you've signed up for in mind. We request that your wishlist includes a few items valued at at least half for your tier, but not exceeding it (ex. if you are in the 50kt tier, items worth 25kt to 50kt). We also suggest a few lower value items you'd like (ex. if in 50kt, items worth 5kt - 15kt.) This is to make shopping easier on your Santa, as they do not have to guess what in-tier items you may like. You are welcome to also list items worth more than your tier, though! You may also request stocking stuffers, which are low value item(s) (~2kt or less) that you enjoy and perhaps collect. These will not make up the majority of your gift unless you specifically request that they do. Your wishlist [b][color=#5B6D51]must be for yourself[/color][/b] as your gifts [b][color=#5B6D51]will only be sent to you[/color][/b]. While you are welcome to resell, regift, etc what you receive later, this is not the place to request gifts for, or to be sent to, others for any reason.

(a brown gingerbread house with frosting. a red mug with little hearts, flowers, and whipped cream with sprinkles. the text reads "how it works.")
How it works: Your elf will provide you with your match’s wish list. You shop for the perfect gift and send it to your elf. Then, your elf delivers that gift to your match come Christmas! The process is that simple. It's the gift that's the challenge!

While you are not required to shop exclusively from your match's list, please send something that you would be happy to receive. If you have questions or concerns about your match’s wishlist, talk to your elf! See below for some help and guidelines.

gfKTtZq.png
(a brown gingerbread house with frosting. a red mug with little hearts, flowers, and whipped cream with sprinkles. the text reads "the perfect gift.")
Participants may gift any item to their match, including but not limited to: gene or breed change scrolls, eggs, vistas, skins/accents, materials, apparel, familiars, pure treasure or gems.

Dragons may also be gifted but CANNOT be sent as the only gift and do not count for the 50% minimum value of your gift. If your match does not want dragons, you cannot send dragons. Your match’s wishlist will specify.

Your match may also be interested in stocking stuffers, which are low value item(s) that they enjoy and perhaps collect. This CANNOT make up the majority of the gift unless they specifically request that they do.

You are welcome to give art and services, but they are considered stocking stuffers and do not count towards the value of your gift. Unfortunately our elves have no way of fairly evaluating non-site items. Please keep this in mind when choosing your participation tier -- you are expected to provide site items up to the minimum required value.

kIMzSkJ.png
(a brown gingerbread house with frosting. a red mug with little hearts, flowers, and whipped cream with sprinkles. the text reads "gift guidelines.")
Minimums:
  • Your gift must be worth the minimum value required by your tier on Dec. 21.
  • One item in your gift must be worth at least half/50% of that value.
However, there are exceptions. You may also gift gem MP items or treasure specialty tab MP items that add up to half the value of your tier. Please discuss with your elf any issues you run into, but the short of it is: the closer you follow your match’s wishlist, the less your adherence to the second rule matters.

For example -- you are in the 500k tier and your match’s wishlist reads: “I am collecting eggs for my birthday hatch.” Eggs are not always 250k items, especially around NotN when all egg prices plummet, but if you send enough eggs to meet the 500k minimum, you will have followed your match’s wishlist closely and met the requirements.

Calculating Value:
  • Our gem to treasure ratio is 1:1000.
  • We will use whichever of the two (gems/treasure) is LOWEST.
    - This means if an item is priced for 50 gems and 20,000 treasure, we will value it at 20,000 treasure.
    - If it is priced at 10 gems and 300,000 treasure, we will value it at 10 gems.
    - We realize there can be errant listings, or none at all. We will do our best to account for these. You may ask for elf for a price breakdown of your gift thus far if you are uncertain!
  • Gem MP items are valued at their MP price.
  • Specialty tab items (Genes, Scenes, and Vistas) are valued at their MP price.
  • All other items are valued at their lowest AH price.
  • Only site items are used to calculate gift value.

Special Considerations:
  • NotN items' values plummet during the event. Do not use their pre-NotN value when preparing your gift. (In fact, we suggest not sending NotN items at all unless they're on your recipient's wishlist!)
  • ALL unhatched egg values plummet during the event.
  • Gem MP items can also be combined together or with scrolls to meet the half tier value requirement.

Making Money:
You can't buy gifts without money! Make sure to save enough for at least your tier minimum, though the more the merrier. You are making a commitment; don't be a grinch!

The Data-Based Money Making Guide by Paladingineer is a great resource.

While we encourage generosity at all tiers, the minimums are in place to allow as many users as possible the chance to take part. You may put whatever you'd like on your wishlist, but please keep the tier you've signed up for in mind.

We request that your wishlist includes a few items valued at at least half for your tier, but not exceeding it (ex. if you are in the 50kt tier, items worth 25kt to 50kt).

We also suggest a few lower value items you'd like (ex. if in 50kt, items worth 5kt - 15kt.)

This is to make shopping easier on your Santa, as they do not have to guess what in-tier items you may like. You are welcome to also list items worth more than your tier, though!

You may also request stocking stuffers, which are low value item(s) (~2kt or less) that you enjoy and perhaps collect. These will not make up the majority of your gift unless you specifically request that they do.

Your wishlist must be for yourself as your gifts will only be sent to you. While you are welcome to resell, regift, etc what you receive later, this is not the place to request gifts for, or to be sent to, others for any reason. This is to prevent confusing or upsetting scenarios for your Santa or elf.
