Hehe
The images do need to be at least a little personalized. You can sign up if your skills aren't the best. You'll be paired up with someone of a similar skill level :)

Basically you sign up for one of the two (recs or image or both). Then once signups close, you'll get a name and their signup PMed to you. Then you fulfill their request and send it back to the elf that PMed you (Not the user you're making it for). Then once everything is done, you'll get your request sent to you and yours will be sent to whoever you made it for.

That's a TL;DR of the event :)

EDIT: To clarify, you can sign up for BOTH if you want.

Hi!

I would humbly volunteer myself as an elf. Santa's workshop looks fun and I don't like glühwein so I'm a perfect candidate

Join and you will get a PM from an Elf telling you who are you going to gift, then you will read their post with what they want and send back the work to that same Elf. Some time after all the users will get their present and some days later it will be revealed who did your present ( Person you did their present will get your name too).
Hope you understand, you should try it.


On other note it's shame this year i won't be able to make it, don't have the time, everyone whould join it's an amazing event.

Ah, a year ago, I joined MAL because of the Secret Santa, and got to watch the all amazing JoJo.

Sadly I won't be able to volunteer as a elf, cause I am only home at the weekends.........

Haven't joined last year due to some circumstances but I'll try and give it a shot for this year ^-^

Question: In the Image edition, there's a part of the form where the link(s) from the previous images used is indicated. Do first-timers fill it out or leave it??
