Don't worry, it's just a recommendation. You need to try the one you'll receive, but you don't need to buy anything. :)

Why did the elves send me 4 private messages? :O

If you sign up for the three events then you receive three messages, but you only have to fill up the form once. If you receive a fourth message then it's possible there was a mistake in one of the previous ones or maybe they wanted to clarify something with you.

Sorry Shinah, we don't accept more elves for now, but I would encourage you to join the santa channel on Discord (?join Santa in #bot-spam). We might need your help later~

All the events are fine for newbies, don't worry about it. You haven't read a ton of manga so it might be hard for you to recommend one so that event might be out for you.

Don't worry about it, there's no need to buy or pay for anything.
You can sign up for three events:
- Anime Recommendations: Give and receive an anime recommendation.
- Manga Recommendations: Give and receive a manga recommendation.
- Images: Make a custom-made/shopped image (avatar or forum set for example) for someone. It depends on what your secret santa is asking for then you also receive one. This event is beginner friendly so don't worry about being good or bad with image editing. You can even use online tools.

All the information and the links to sign up to these events are in the first post. :)

First, you need to pick which event/s you want to participate in.
- Anime Recommendations: Give and receive an anime recommendation.
- Manga Recommendations: Give and receive a manga recommendation.
- Images: Make a custom-made/shopped image (avatar or forum set for example) for someone. It depends on what your secret santa is asking for then you also receive one. This event is beginner friendly so don't worry about being good or bad with image editing. You can even use online tools.

The links to the sign-up threads are in the first post so you can just click on the one/s you're interested in and follow the instructions there.
You don't have to join the Discord server to participate, but feel free to join us there too! :D

Well, you two can pick between these three events here:
- Anime Recommendations: Give and receive an anime recommendation.
- Manga Recommendations: Give and receive a manga recommendation.
- Images: Make a custom-made/shopped image (avatar or forum set for example) for someone. It depends on what your secret santa is asking for then you also receive one. This event is beginner friendly so don't worry about being good or bad with image editing. You can even use online tools.

After picking one (or more) event, you just have to sign up in the sign up threads. They're linked in the first post of this thread just below the "How to join" section. After that, you just have to follow the instructions in the sign up thread. You'll have to copy the code after "How to sign up" then you paste it in your reply and answer the questions. If you want to sign up for more than one, you'll need to do that again in the other sign up thread/s. Then you just have to wait for one of the elf to contact you and confirm that you still want to participate.

Last steps are to prepare the gift for your secret santa and receive your own gift. :)

The deadline to sign up is Sunday, Dec 8, 23:59 PST so you'll need to decide quickly if you want to participate!

Both of the recommendation events seem interesting, but I'm worried I will not have a good enough number of things to be able to recommend anyone, which one would be the best for me (sorry for bothering ahah) ?

You seem to have a good amount of series completed for anime and manga, so no harm in joining both :^)

Sorry for bothering and thanks.

You'll receive your recipient by December 13. You have one week to create the gift, so the deadline is December 21.

The gift should be sent via PM to the Elf you've been receiving instructions from.

Here I am, procrastinating as usual and trying to decide whether I should join the event or not. I’ll probably join the manga event, and maybe anime too, (time to update my list with all the shows I started watching and haven’t finished yet.), but the one I’m unsure on is the image editing one. I use Amino a lot, which has a large editing community, and I’ve done a lot of edits there, but I’m not sure how that translate into whether I’d be good at editing stuff for MAL or not, since I’ve never done one for it before.

The time limit is tonight at 23:59 PST so you'll have to decide quickly. ^^;

Hmm, I know the app, but I'm not sure how it works. If you can resize a picture to a certain size and upload the image somewhere in a jpg or png format then I don't see why not. Examples for the size:

* Profile picture = the picture you upload to your profile (225 x 350px)
* About me = a big image that you can embed in the "about me" section on your profile (max. width 800px)
* Forum avatar = the picture you upload to appear on the forum (100 x 125px)
* Forum signature = the horizontal image that appears below your forum posts (max. 600 x 150px, 300kb)

Those are smaller than the standard Amino sizes, but they sound doable, so I guess I’ll apply for that too then.

I have a question. So with the Secret Santa are we recommending a single anime title/series or do we have to recommend multiple types of anime based on what they want. I was also wondering if there are any resources available to help me if I'm unable to find an anime for them (I don't want them to feel left out).

Hey! There is no limit to amount of series you may recommend but you will only have to have one recommendation.

Also, a bulky explanation is required for your main recommendation over the extra recommendations(if you choose to do so). A example of the gift which you can use as a guideline, as your probably know, is in the sign up thread.

Yes of course! If you need help, feel free to send a PM to the Elf that sent you your recipient. The Elves will gladly help you!

You should've received a private message from one of the elves and the link to the form you need to fill should be inside.

Just wondering but I signed up for the anime rec event and I haven't gotten a private message with the confirmation link either. Is there anything else I can do like reaching out to one of the elves? I can also just wait until tomorrow to see if I get a message which is totally fine.

We got your re-confirmation! Sorry, it seems a distracted elf marked you as confirmed on Anime, but not Manga. Everything is good now, no need to worry.

I know it's most likely too late for this year, but I was advised in the Discord to leave a reply. If you suddenly need help with writing recommendations for people whose santa's didn't send them anything, I would like to help out. I haven't undergone any training and as I said, I know it's technically too late for this year, but I was advised to leave a comment here just in case anyways. Better safe than sorry. Thank you for the work you do!

I did send a confirmation application but looks like they missed it somehow? I got a message saying I didn’t send one, which I am assuming means that there was an error. I sent another one, but if possible. I would like to know what happens in these kinds of situations.


It's ridiculous, but I love it.
