Hey guys and gals!
It's December which means the holiday season is upon us, and as usual we will be doing the annual MLK Secret Santa!
If this is your first year, or if you forgot how it works, I'll explain it to you. To sign up for participation just reply to this topic saying you're in, and you'll be added to the list of participants. On December 14th, your names will be drawn at random, and you will be assigned a person to give a gift to. I will send you this information through PM. Don't tell them you're their secret santa, that would spoil the surprise!
Now, if you do end up stuck with someone you don't really know, and don't know what to make for them, take a look around their profile, the links in their signature, etc. and if it's too difficult, you can ask me and I'll PM them on your behalf asking what their interests are (it's a pretty safe bet if you go with TLK, though).
As for what the gift can be? It can be anything! It can be a new signature, a poem, a fanfic, a video, etc. Just get creative!
Now, this is a giving AND receiving event. Please do not sign up if you do not intend to make anything for the person you get as your secret santa. There have been many times in the past when nice people have gone without a gift because the person who got them did not make it, and it's not a fun time. So please, only sign up if you intend to give and receive.
Around Christmas, the MLK Christmas tree will go up. That is where you will post your gifts for people, and I'll have a link in this post to it as soon as it is available.
Anyway, that's all the info! Have fun and have a very Merry Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate!

The holidays are upon us! I hope everyone has the fortune to spend time with family and friends this holiday season and make the most of it. I know I will be!
With that, I've been begged to drag the holiday theme out of storage. (The requests started right after Thanksgiving. I'm no Grinch, but COME ON people! Must we surrender ourselves to the jolly season so soon?)
I tried to make it a bit easier on the eyes, but it's still quite garish, or perhaps the garishness nostalgically shows through.
For those who want to switch back, it's a simple select box in your User Control Panel -> Board preferences. Next year the themes may be removed completely in favor of just a little halloween/holiday flair in the standard theme.
Anyway, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc. etc. to EVERYONE
I added a few new smilies to the forum from screengrabs from The Lion Guard!
I also added a few from the old smilies thread that I missed that I thought were really good.
Thank you Geni, Noah, and DGF.
You can see the smilie codes here: http://mylionking.com/smilies.php
I will be accepting new smilies from The Lion Guard, just post them in this topic. I just noticed I missed Janja, so he'd be a good one to get.
