IMPORTANT! READ THIS!!
« on: December 16, 2004, 04:52:09 pm »
I am talking with Ereshkigal... and we have had an idea. It can be difficult to do, but it can be really funny.

Do you know what the "invisible friend" or "secret friend" is? A group of friends cut so many papers as people are: in each piece of paper, the name of one of them is written. Then, the papers are distributed, one per person. The name you have in the paper is your "invisible friend": you have to make to him/her a gift. You usually have some days to buy or make it, and in a decided date all friends make a meeting: all gifts are put in the same place with the name of the owner, and distributed. You don't know who has sent your gift, but you have to guess it. Finally, all people has made the guess and i told if he/she is wrong or not... All it ends with the knoweledge of who has sent what to whom.

Well... the idea is doing something like it but, obviously it has to be different. We can decide a date to have the names of all NTSMS member who want to do it. After it, we can ask to some friend who knows us but don't participate to do the lottery (without tricks!) and sending a PM to all participants telling who is the "invisible friend". The gift would had to be no material (normal mailing can be too expensive): it had to me MADE by some electronic source, and it have to can be sent by e-mail (as an attached file...).

Well, this is th idea. We want to know who would like to participate and we ask for ideas. About how to do the lottery, how the gifts can be....

PLEASE, ANSWER IT! It can be funny, but only if enough people decides to do it and compromises to do it!

Hi Luth,

nice idea! In German this is called "wichteln", from "Wichtel", a friendly kind of imp. I would surely join, as long as we get enough time to prepare something.

Cheers!

GOOD! I see our idea had some followers.

Well, the idea of this topic is not only to make you know about the idea, but expressing your ideas too! I'll leave this topic opened for a time, in order to:

1.Know who will participate.
2.Getting more ideas

When inscriptions will be closed, we'll had to decide how the lottery will be done (I think that Ereshkigal has some idea) and what's will be the limit date to have the gifts. As an unusual form of "invisible friend", I suppose we won't had to meet us all the same time of the same day  :P . But it will be good having some limit, long enough to have time to do it!

See you!

Luth

Well I suggest that the person that asings the "invisible friend" should be neutral when he does it. Maybe someone from the forum that won't participate or someone else outside the forum that is willing to do so!

But she/he should also make it like a raffle! No cheating alowed! So I suggest this person writes down the names of the people that will play (including me of course) in excel or whatever....and then he makes some real papers with all the names too. She/he folds them and mixes them up and starts taking out one by one and assigning them to people of the list that he has made on the computer.

If for example "Ereshkigal" gets "Ereshkigal" then I should then be assiged to the next person of the list! And voila!  :)

Since it is very hard for all of us to gather in one place, and do this raffle thingy she/he who assings the "invisible friend" should PM us all.  (except for Sirius who needs to be either Pm'ed from the official megatherion.com forum, or e-mailed).

And... we must think of something creative to make to our secret friend!  :D

I think that time of opened inscriptions have to finish soon. Since we have to send the name of the participants to the "innocent hand" (it's so in english?) to do the lottery, what do you ting? Can we close the inscriptions tomorrow, Thursday 23? If you agree, tomorrow is the last day you can say "Ey, I want to be in!". And Friday, the list will be send.

Btw... The innocent hand maybe will have to send the names not with PM, but with e-mail. Please, tell it to Ereshkigal if you have not it in your profile. The innoncent hand is our friend Rick (Sirius13).

[snapback]1550[/snapback]

The delivery day will be more or less 15 january, but not decided yet. About the present, I asked for ideas and noone has sai nothing! It has to be something which can be sent by e-mail, and you have to be sure the other person will receive. You can use photoshop, Word, power point... (all participants had this?)... I don't know, imagination!!!!

btw... you're one of those without e-mail adress in your profile!

Well... a problem that might rise for someone here: we don't know all which software has the other. I mean... maybe you are making a wonderful Power Point presentation... and your secret friend has no Power Point. Or you are writting sometink in Word, and the same problem!

So, I think that all of us have to writte what we have or what no, in order to help our secret friend. Here are my software:

Well, it's easy. As I use Windows, I have Word, Powe Point, Excel and all the stuff... -_-

What about you??
