I'm running a bit late this year but oh well. Secret New Years? I suppose?

Anyway, rules as follows:
1. PM me your nickname and address and I'll throw you on the list. Please use a format of "Secret Santa 2018 Username" for the message title.
2. DEADLINE to send me your address and sign up is over. I'll have everyone's names matched and PM'd by the evening of December 6th.
3. Please mail your gift by December 11th. Not everything will arrive by Christmas but the sooner we ship the sooner it arrives.
4. Matches will be randomly generated making use of boxes and printed names. Don't worry though, Jim and Fred won't be sending each other gifts. It'll be closer to Jim -> Harry, Harry -> Fred, Fred -> Jim.
5. Once you receive your gift, please take a picture and post it in the Secret Santa 2017 Photo Thread.
6. Members that joined Deskthority before October 15th, 2018 are eligible to join. Alternatively, if you can get a trustworthy user to vouch for you I'll be glad to throw you in.
7. The size and value of the gift is open, but it should be keyboard related. For bonus points throw in some of your local candy or treats. Who doesn't like that stuff?
8. Shipping charges are on you. This is a worldwide event and as such you might end up shipping internationally. If absolutely required mention it in the PM and I'll try and match you with someone in the same geographical area. I understand that sometimes shipping internationally can be very expensive.
9. You may be excluded from secret santa if last year you kind of blew off the whole shipping something/responding to messages thing. The dictator in charge still has last year's list :) .

Current List:
1.) abrahamstechnology (US)
2.) Wobbled (UK)
3.) j0d1 (CA)
4.) Myoth (FR)
5.) XMIT (US)
6.) __red__ (US)
7.) Darkshado (CA)
8.) ZedTheMan (US)
9.) andrewjoy (UK)
10.) Nuum (DE)
11.) madrobby (US)
12.) snacksthecat (US)
13.) AdrianMan (RO)

Update 1:
Everyone is now matched and will have a PM with their recipient!

I’m making like a goose, as usual, and migrating to my wintering grounds so can’t take part in this. But it’s been a lot of fun in the past. I gave away a Model M one year and scored a Marquardt Mini—quite an upgrade by my taste—all by the power of random Santa!

I've been an IBM keyboard user my entire life. My secret santa sent me a "satan" keyboard with some kind of specially lubed (red I think?) MX switches.

It actually is in my rotation and I'm using it now.

Did you hear that? You got an F122 blowhard to use an MX 60% keyboard!

It truly was a a Christmas miracle!

Hah! I'm talking about who I want to get to send stuff to, for I have an evil plan if fortune smiles upon Brad and Janet.

P.S: To my Santa if you're outside EU, If you can, declare as gift with low value 5-10$ , customs are hard here (6 € + 19% value for all > 10$)
