2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

No.33143404 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Sign ups are over! Assignments are underway. Please be patient as the schedule is just an estimate. We saw quite the increase in participants this year so things will take a little time but soon you all will be set and ready for that sweet Holiday shopping!

>What it is:
Secret Santa is a holiday gift and card exchange where you shop for and send cheer to another Anon! Once a year we all act just a little less horrible to each other.

>BUT IT ISN'T EVEN THANKSGIVING REEEE
Shut up.

>Still confused?
Please be sure to give the FAQ a look if you are new or have any questions! It covers a fair bit. Also consider looking at previous threads through Desuarchive to see gifts and cards from years past.
