Frequently Asked Questions

Due to the huge influx of questions I've received about this, I am compiling a FAQ. Not that I think it will help, but there's something therapeutic about writing it out.

  1. Can I become a co-author on Secret Santa?
  2. I want to make some comic gifts for my friends, can you post them on Secret Santa?
  3. Can I submit a BMP file/other format that can't be uploaded to Smack Jeeves?
  4. Can I submit a flash file?
  5. How big/small should my gift be?
  6. If I have extra time, should I make a generic gift for people who got scrooged?
  7. If I tell you via PM or email that I'm not making a gift after the deadline has passed to back out, will I still be considered a scrooge?
  8. I'm NOT a scrooge! Why did I get a PM from you telling me that there are only 5 days left to submit my gift??
  9. Can I PM my gift to you? My email won't let me attach files.
  10. I asked you to confirm when you received my gift in email, but you didn't respond!!
  11. Why do you need to know who I am/who my recipient is? Isn't it OBVIOUS?
  12. Why are you running Secret Santa? Are you a masochist?
  13. My mom is making me do stuff and I can't do Secret Santa. Am I a scrooge? She's mean - wouldn't she be the scrooge?

Answers

  1. Can I become a co-author on Secret Santa?
  2. No. Why would that be okay? What happened to your brain that you thought that would be okay? That makes no sense. Did you read anything on this site? For the sake of my fucking sanity, please stop your friends and anyone else you give a crap about from applying to be a co-author on this comic. The next one of you who does gets a very special, very medieval, very painful Christmas present.

  3. I want to make some comic gifts for my friends, can you post them on Secret Santa?
  4. Did you sign up for Secret Santa? Do you know how it works? Why would I post gifts you made for people you chose to make gifts for? MY MIND. IT IS BROKEN. YOU DID THIS TO ME.

  5. Can I submit a BMP file/other format that can't be uploaded to Smack Jeeves?
  6. No. Why. Why would you do that? Because it's easier for you? What about me? I'm not just uploading your gift, I'm uploading 150 gifts. BE A MAN. DO THE RIGHT THING.

  7. Can I submit a flash file?
  8. Yes. Just make sure it's within the size limits accepted by Smack Jeeves.

  9. How big/small should my gift be?
  10. No less than 300px wide and no more than 900 px wide.

  11. If I have extra time, should I make a generic gift for people who got scrooged?
  12. No. You have to specifically sign up to be a magical elf to do gifts for people who got scrooged, that's one. Two, generic gifts aren't acceptable. For anyone. Don't you think that making a generic gift for anyone is a dick move - but especially someone who already got scrooged? You are an awesome person.

  13. If I tell you via PM or email that I'm not making a gift after the deadline has passed to back out, will I still be considered a scrooge?
  14. Yes. You will still be considered a scrooge. You scrooge.

  15. I'm NOT a scrooge! Why did I get a PM from you telling me that there are only 5 days left to submit my gift??
  16. Maybe because I haven't gotten your gift yet? Just a thought. It's a generic reminder message I sent out to however many people I haven't gotten something from yet. I can stop doing it, but then a lot of people might forget to send in their gift. Time flies, I figure a reminder might be helpful. If I'm mistaken, I won't do it again. It's a pretty time consuming task.

  17. Can I PM my gift to you? My email won't let me attach files.
  18. How would you PM your gift to me? As a link, right? Do that in email, smart guy.

  19. I asked you to confirm when you received my gift in email, but you didn't respond!!
  20. Secret Santa email submissions are not for chit chat. It's to submit a gift. I do my best to respond when I can, but if you need to talk to me, pick another medium.

  21. Why do you need to know who I am/who my recipient is? Isn't it OBVIOUS?
  22. No - and I ask you to state the "obvious" so that I know I didn't screw up when assigning names. I have a list, but I need you to tell me who you are and who your gift is for so that I can ensure that everything is running the way it's supposed to. DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU?

  23. Why are you running Secret Santa? Are you a masochist?
  24. Apparently I am.

  25. My mom is making me do stuff and I can't do Secret Santa. Am I a scrooge? She's mean - wouldn't she be the scrooge?
  26. You're both scrooges - happy now?
