Santa's Workshop Needs Elves

A few of our elves are otherwise occupied (too much glühwein...) and we need volunteers to help:

 ❅ verify matches so each Santa has something to recommend (must know many anime)
 ❅ quality check gifts to be sure the Santa followed directions (manual inspection)
 ❅ send an ungodly number of event PMs (copy paste baby)
 ❅ write elf notes for naughty Santas who didn't explain their gifts properly (tsk tsk)
 ❅ make last-minute backup gifts for very naughty Santas (it ain't Christmas til it's done)

Only serious volunteers who know many anime and have a lot of free time to help!
To volunteer, please say so in this thread and join MAL's Discord server.

3rd year doing this. The last 2 years I’ve had people who didn’t watch or comment about my recommendation, so maybe 3rd time is the charm.

Willing to help as an elf. Can’t verify in the Discord though, as the automod doesn’t work. @Kineta will that be a problem?

Question, When you mean that we have to send our gifts to your "elves" what do you mean and how and where will we do it?

I don't know if they're going to give me the Halloween badge but ok
