Hi everyone. After much deliberation the site staff has decided to stop this thread.
The main line of reasoning is because it invites many issues. We've seen problems (many recent) both here and elsewhere with people getting ripped off or scammed as a result of 'good faith' trading on the internet, and because of that we don't want to promote the environment that allows these types of things to thrive.
This isn't saying that the people involved in the thread are doing anything unethical at all, I personally know most, if not all of you well enough to be comfortable doing some sort of trade. However, when you leave this kind of exchange open to the public, it also means you might let in the random guy/girl who just wants to get a free gift.
I'm sure this kind of secret santa type exchange can be further worked over and modified in a way to help reduce/eliminate the chances of someone getting ripped off, but even still it's not something the site staff and forum wants to be complicit in by allowing it to be hosted here.
You guys are more than welcome to communicate via PM or chat to continue this program, we just can't have any more threads about it.
Thanks for your understanding and if you have any questions or comments you can direct them to me, the help desk, or the other site staff.
