DC Community Digital White Elephant
« on: November 20, 2012, 04:20:51 PM »
Have you ever heard of a White Elephant Gift Exchangew?  I thought about doing a variant of it here, and wanted to see if there was any interest (and who would be interested) in doing one on DC to promote community among the members.

I was thinking of the following parameters:
  • Nothing above $10
  • Everything must be digital, with a code that can be PM'd to the receiver
  • Everyone is randomly assigned a person
  • One person is randomly chosen to start, and the person that they were gifted by is revealed.
  • The next person then has their gifter revealed, and chooses whether to keep their gifter, or take one that was given before
  • Two times through the list, with a maximum of two steals of any gift are possible

Afterwards, we can exchange the gift codes via PM.  Depending on how many people are participating, there will probably be a time limit set on turns when your turn comes up.  I was also thinking that we should set a limit on participants, i.e. those who have been members longer than 3 months or a certain number of posts, but I'm sort of torn on that, and in this planning wanted to get opinions from those that are participating.

Thoughts?  Interest?

Sounds interesting.
I think I understand the practical aspects but I'm not sure about the actual gifts -
does it have to be a "white elephant" :-)

Would it mainly be games or software?

Software, Games, Gift Certificates... anything that can be distributed digitally.  And it's more about the game and interactions than the actual gifts :)

It seems that we have enough interest :)  I'll post the official announcement and signups around the first, and we can start the exchanges hopefully on the 15th.

I don't think I have anything under $10, at least, not digital  ;).
