Can I volunteer to be an emergency elf? Don't really want to get anything this year, but would still like to get someone something.

Yes.  

Anybody that would like to elf, PM me as well and I'll add you to the emergency list.

I'm in too. Will try to send the pm tomorrow.

On another note (I'll mention it in the pm too) but I am unwilling to send to Canada. People in other non Canada countries may have this problem as well, I don't know, but Canada has recently been holding packages from Taiwan, at least, in customs, for months, literally. Yet a package from Taiwan to Slovak republic arrives in less than a week... Just bringing this up as there's no way I (or potentially some others ) could get the gift there by Christmas, through no fault of my own.

What about the US?  It could be tough to match you up with somebody outside of those two countries.

 





USA is totally fine, packages to there arrive in standard (about 2-2.5 weeks) time. Its only to Canada where packages take so long to arrive, and for that country, it's apparently an issue on Canada's side, which may effect other members sending to there as well .

I'm in.

Unrelated, my company is having a Christmas Party/on-site training in early December. We're a remote company, so we're all flying to HQ, and they want to have a white elephant gift swap. Considering my stack of stuff, I already know what I'm taking-- a DMG-01, Tetris and 4 batteries, all parts locked and loaded, and ready for play. Let the Christmas fighting begin!

For those that have sent links (to your collection, NA buyer thread, etc) so far, they will not be passed on to your recipient since NA truncates them.

I have updated the first post so hopefully more people see that.

Is that new?  I've never had that problem in the past

Not sure when it started, but it doesn't show me the whole link this year to copy and paste.

That's going to make it a bit difficult.  I like to look at other people's lists to get them something they don't already have.  Is there a way around that?

Link shortening services seem to work.

Also, if somebody mentions their collections on here are up to date you can still manually click on their profile and view their stored collections.

It's still a clickable link, it just doesn't show the entire text of the link, so it doesn't copy/paste properly. Santa would have to scan each message for truncated links, copy the link location, and replace the truncated link with that info. Yuck. I'd volunteer to put the time in, but only the message recipient (Santa) himself can access the full link.

Using bit.ly (or similar) is a decent compromise.
