Hello and welcome to dcsecretsanta, This is a community for fans of Disney or the Disney Channel to have a online "secret Santa", the rules and guidelines are below and modled after the community gg_santa. Please make all posts FRIENDS ONLY.
CLOSED TILL NEXT YEAR!
HOW IT WORKS Post your wishlist during November (please follow the instructions below) and you will be given the name of another community member who has also posted their wishlist. And your name will go to someone, and so on, and so on.. Any type of created gift is acceptable to ask for: fanfic, banners, icons, wallpapers, videos, music mixes, Christmas albums, albums in general, videos for ipod, etc. and are not limited to disney channel or disney
NOTE: Posting a wishlist automatically means, that you will have to be a secret santa for someone else.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE Join this community, then make a new post containing your wishlist between November 11 and December 7, 2007. Please use the following format:
MY WISHLIST 1. Username: 2. Email address where we can send your giftee(s) (who you have): If you prefer not to post it in public, please email it to us (with your LJ name) at email@example.com. 3. What I want: Be as specific as possible. Graphics? what kind? icons/banners/headers, Music?, fan mix? albums? please be specific. The more specific you are and the more you ask for, the better the odds that you'll get gifts that you've asked for. 4. What I can do: What do you prefer creating? Fic, icons, graphics in general, videos? Help us give you an assignment you'll be comfortable with. 5. What I absolutely won't do: If there's a Person, pairing, that you will not make graphics for or will not write about or you do not have their music or if you think you'll only be able to make graphics, or if you can't make graphics, say so here. 6. Are you willing to provide a backup contribution? Yes or No. We may ask for backup contributors in the event that some Santas can't fulfill their obligations. This will most likely occur in the first week of January. If you are unable or uninterested in being a backup contributor, it's perfectly okay to say no. Please don't say "maybe" or "don't know". Yes or No are the only two answers.

If you are unable to meet your deadline or post your gift on time (or at all), please let us know.
WHAT'S EXPECTED Gifts should reasonably reflect what was asked for. If someone asks for Icons of Brenda Song, just one icon would probably be a little disappointing. Virtual gifts only! Do not spend money! The purpose of Disney Channel Fans Secret Santa is to share creativity and revel in the generosity of the holiday season.
CHRISTMAS MUSIC POST There will be one post where everyone can share as much or as little christmas music as they want, it'll be fun to see how much we end up with! The christmas music post will be HERE.
GAME/ACTIVITIES Throughout the wishlist posts and deadline, games will be hosted by us mods and you the members. Games such as "Share your favorite holiday memory", "Share your favorite song", "share a manip of your favorite disney star", "List two things you want to know about the person above you", "list christmas songs by people with a Name starting with H", are just a few examples of what games can be played. This community is supposed to be fun so please enjoy it!
