I only got gifts from one of my three santas. Though I did talk to one of them last week through email. Makes me a little sad. But, I did have a great time shopping for my giftees.

I am posting this message publicly that I just sent to people that I show have not received all their gifts.

================================================== ===================================

URGENT Santa Checkin - Gifts received

My advance apologies if you have notified me via PM of receipt of your gifts.

Dear Santas,

According to my records, I do not show that you have received all the gifts you should have through the Santa event. My records are based on PMs you sent me; NOT any posts you made in the public thread.

I ask that each of you provide a positive response to this message.

Please inform me if my records are correct... and if not, how they are off... if you have received any gifts... please tell me what you have received in detail.

Many of you have chosen to NOT respond to me throughout this season. FAILURE TO RESPOND TO THIS MESSAGE WILL RESULT IN ME ASSUMING YOU RECEIVED ALL GIFTS AND I WILL STOP ALL EFFORTS TO FOLLOW UP ON YOUR BEHALF.

I am working to close out this event as quickly as possible and need your help.

Thanks,

William

Hope all had a great holiday! A huge thank you to Wharvey for another great FT SS.

The Blue USPS santa delivered a FT SS package yesterday
The blue santa's package included an Emirates hat, apple gift card, and entertainment coupon book. And a thoughtful note of an elf mishap on an item that should excite my AVgeek daughter.
(Picture to follow)
Thank you Vapro10s

Happy New Year to Wharvey, the Elves, and all the SS that have made this a great exchange again.

Wooo! This was fun! Is the ratio of sending:receiving 1:1? If so, I'm 1:0.67

If not, all cool.

I also see one of my secret Santa's in that list but he/she received 1/2 so I'm hoping one of them is mine!

I gave six gifts and only one person has not acknowledged the gift and I see them on this list has not responding to any of their Santas. So I guess they just aren't acknowledging. Sad

Perhaps some people are still traveling which is why they've not responded to William or others?

Due to finances I didn't participate but I've enjoyed reading/viewing last several pages. There were definitely some awesome gifts.

Cheers.

This is the first year for me and i had a great time. I sent out 4 gifts and received three back. Oh well, i know Santa Wharvey has done his best and I appreciate it. Hopefully one more will appear but i am not holding my breath.

I recognized all the gifts i received and all 4 of mine sent out were received and posted about.

Merry Christmas to all and happy new year!

It was, indeed, a great year for FTSS!

wharvey - thank you for coordinating this once again.

I have sent all gifts. All gifts have been ackowledged... and yes, I did, actually notify wharvey.... some know that I was their Secret Santa ... and I think maybe it is just one that might not know

Here again is my wiki list of acknowledgement posts:

MiffSC #1 #2 #3#4

The only strange thing I have noticed about the wiki is that it somehow resets the link to the posts. I could swear that each link actually had the post number in it, but they seem to work... so hey ho!

Just to be clear, the list isn't just people who didn't correspond with wharvey. Although some on the list havent, the names the list are those who have not told wharvey they received a gift, some because they just haven't received a gift yet.

(Too nitpicky?)

Considering I can see that they have read my PMs to them, I do not think that is the reason.

Every year some people choose to not follow the rules... and not respond to me. This causes me much more work.

I may just decide next year to not allow people to participate that do not "follow" the rules.

There have been some great gifts... and I am so disappointed that people cannot take the time to acknowledge the gifts.

HO HO HO! It is time to sign up for 2014 FT Secret Santa!

All of mine bar one have acknowledged in the threads receipt of their gifts. The last One was waiting to open on Xmas day and waiting for them to post.

I've replied to wharveys pm as I am missing one gift.

A stellar effort by Sir wharvey as usual!!!

Fellow flyertalkers: if you had the time to sign up, you have the time to post in this thread and reply to wharvey what you got. Such poor form by many. The "I was away" excuse really doesn't cut it anymore.
