Welcome again to the Autumn Season.
Hunters are /out/, fishing is in, and outings with a pipe are never over.
Posting a day before the world renowned Veteran’s Day (name may vary by region), let us take this day of remembrance to look towards the future.
I have visited other boards to see how their Secret Santas were doing and came across /k/-Weapons, our Father board’s, website: https://sekretsanta.com/
Here on /out/ we do a self regulated Amazon Wishlist.
For first timers and Alzheimer’s: Anons post their amazon wishlist (ex: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2XPPAQVSMI31Y?ref_=wl_share
other anon’s choose who, and what, to buy for a gift.
Some things I personally don’t like about the Amazon Wishlist is it’s not the most intuitive of things.
(After this post, guides will be posted on how to configure your list and then configure your list to ship to you. Just because it’s your list does NOT mean it will go directly to you; a problem I had years ago.)
I have been talking to the /k/ Sekret Santa website’s admin, Big Boss, about putting together an /outdoors/ branch on the original /k/ sekret santa site so that we may use it as well.
Pros: Ease of use, pricing selection, price matching, and anti-grinching protections.
Cons: Anons are expected to put a gift together themselves using recipient guidelines, ship themselves, and there are deadlines.
The deadlines are in place to make sure everyone receives a gift on time.
Anons can place a wishlist in their description, however it is understood that if you receive a gift you don’t like, but is in the price range, then you do not qualify for grinch consolation gifts.
Since I care about this board and it’s users, I would like to see how others feelhttps://strawpoll.com/zjfv22ub9
As I said, I am in talks with Big Boss and told him by Friday I will give him an answer if we are going to use his site going forward.
Love, Cajun Santa
