Re: The 2018 Cthanta Claus (RPG Secret Santa) Gift Exchange
I came across this notification on drivethruRPG.com about order dates and shipping estimates.

Quote:
Holiday Shipping Notes:
Due to holiday order volume please add 3 extra working days to the delivery times shown below.
Our printer has told us that you must order by November 21st (for hardcover books) or November 28th (for softcover books) for there to be a chance of delivery before Christmas. However, even then, we cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas.


Obviously, this doesn't pertain to PDF purchases. But, if you want to get your target a POD book from Drivethru/RPGnow, you have to move fast after targets are assigned.

Thanks Chad.

I definitely have some of these items. I'll be sure to note in my letter that this is not a worry for me.

I like talkative types, too. I only worry is that my limited access to the geek sites during the day would be construed as less engaging.

Two things:

1. I'm at The Crystal Maze experience today, so you have until late this evening to sign up/get others to sign up!

2. I'm still working on the microbadge...since I realised this is the 10th exchange I want it to be extra shiny which is taking a bit more work.

The exchange is closed, and targets have been assigned!

Have fun, and make sure to use the Cthanta Claus profile to send geekmails etc!

What is the difference between logging in as Cthanta Clause to communicate with your target and using the "Send a Message to Your Target" capability in the exchange system?

Nothing much really. Both are anonymous. One is just themed.

So, if I log in to Cthanta Claus and it goes straight to my (brumcg) profile, that's a... good thing?

Most times, when I sign up to any kind of Secret Santa on BGG / RPGG, I end up in the exact same page I was in when I logged out from my real identity.

But sometimes, for no apparent reason, I end up on the usual page that indicates that the user has to log in.

I can't recall having ever been sent to my user profile, if I wasn't there already.

I think that as you get sent to different domains, you may have to log in again because your cookie can't be retrieved from a different domain.

If I'm logged into rpggeek.com and get sent to www.rpggeek.com, boardgamegeek.com, www.boardgamegeek.com videogamegeek.com or www.videogamegeek.com, I may have to log back in.

This mostly happens when following links from other users, but some system mails haven't been updated and still point to a specific domain.
