Hello, my dear MLK’ers! Holiday season is upon us and, of course, Christmas isn’t Christmas in MyLionKing without our annual Secret Santa! I couldn’t be more excited and I really hope the rest of you feel the same way.
“But I’ve never participated, what do I do?”
Don’t worry, I’ll gladly explain that to you!
To sign up for participation, just reply to this topic and your name will be added to the list of participants. On December 17th, all names will be drawn at random and everyone will be assigned a person to give a gift to. Then, I will inform each of you about your partner through PM. Do not tell them that you’re their Secret Santa, or you'll spoil the surprise!
If you want to, you may also add a small list of things you’re interested in in this thread, as you sign up. It might be useful for the person gifting you!
“I don’t know much about the person I got. Now what?”
If you end up ‘stuck’ with someone you don’t really know and can’t figure out what to make for them, just take a look around their profile. Most of our members also share their interests through their avatars and signatures, so I recommend paying attention to these, as well. But, if it’s too difficult, just contact me and I will PM them, asking what their interests are.
“I have no ideas for a gift.”
Your gift can be anything! A fanfic, a poem, a video, a new signature, a drawing, etc! Just get creative and you’ll find something!
“Where do I post my gift?”
You will be able to post your gift in the “MLK Christmas Tree” thread, which will be created later on. As soon as it is available, I’ll post a link to it here.
Just remember something: this is a giving and receiving event. Please, don’t sign up if you do not intend to make something for your Secret Santa. If you only intend to receive, this is not the right event for you!
You have until December 16th to sign up by posting in this thread and, on the following day (17th), you will receive a PM telling you who’s your Secret Santa. The MLK Christmas tree will go up on the 23rd and, due the delay of this event, you will have until the 31st to post your gift.
And that is all, I believe! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help you. Just remember to have fun!
Hello all, I recently switched the site to force a secure HTTPS connection (this only means if you go to http://mylionking.com it redirects to https://mylionking.com). It's something I've been meaning to do for a while and it took some work, but I think everything should be good now.
You should see a little green lock in your browser now:
For you security nerds out there, it'd be a good idea to change your password as a precaution.
EDIT: FYI you may not always see the green lock. That usually means that there are images on the page somewhere that were loaded over regular http://, which is fine. Your connection is still secure.
