Ok...rather than flood my inbox with Geekmail...how about all of you that are reading this make a quick post.

If you haven't sent your gift yet...for whatever reason, you must send me a geekmail immediately and explain what's up.

If you haven't yet received your gift and are starting to be worried, make a post here and just say "I haven't gotten my gift yet", when that happens, I'll start hunting down all the Santa-offenders and figure out what's been going on. I'm pretty sure there's a reasonable explanation for a lot of them.

Hey...I haven't gotten my gift yet either!

I've just seen this thread - nothing here yet! (Not that I'm too worried, I sent mine and on the whole I had a great time nonetheless).

I heard from an "elf" before Christmas. Nothing has yet come. Two weeks ago I sent a follow-up message to my elf to verify whether something was in transit (my elf has a UK email address so I wanted to see if I needed to account for trans-atlantic shipping), but I've gotten no response.

I've been reluctant to say anything because it really is more about the giving than the receiving, but it would be nice to receive, too.

Ok...I'm working on all of them right now. A total of 6 users are having a problem. We'll see if we can resolve this or not. One is already resolved, and another was a sock-puppet, but everyone else is work checking up on. I may need some assistance, but for now I'll just see if GMs do the trick!

I think the total is 4. I am making a black-list right now. There is still some good chances for resolution on these matters.

Our recent triumphs: Dived to evade enemy aircraft. Lost contact. Dived to evade destroyer. Depth charged. The British have stopped making mistakes.

Have all of these folks been contacted? Do they seem well meaning?

And let me just say that Lars is a great moderator for the Santa Grogs effort. I debated about whether to remain silent, but I ultimately decided it was worth raising the visibility just a bit that it doesn't always work as intended (and to maybe nudge those who haven't yet completed their end of the bargain).

I concur - great work running the SS.

I received mine after returning home from China a couple of weeks ago.

EDIT:

The first sentence is not meant to suggest that anyone has anything to do with a certain ex chicken farmer...blush

Ok...let me address just a few points:

Firstly, the naughty Santas have all ended up on my list...and I emailed them, geekmailed them, and generally tried to contact them in every way possible except for the physical post. If somebody thinks that a letter would be better than an email/geekmail, then send me a Geekmail. The naughty Santas are in the USA and the UK.

Secondly, some of the Santas (3ish) seem to very genuinely be victims of the postal systems around the world. Two of them have already made it right by sending a second game out of the goodness of their hearts. Awesome guys! They're definitely off my list, and also they're guys I know from frequent posts and activity here on the Geek.

Thirdly, there are some very naughty Santas left (3.5). One of them seems to be an ok guy who just ended up in a bad way. That is actually the exact thing that happened to me. My Santa sent my package much too late, and basically just forwarded a still shrink-wrapped game to me because he had a financial issue arise in his life...those things happen. But for those who haven't responded at all...trouble's brewing!

Fourthly, if anybody out there wants to be super cool and become a Santa for a second time...I would really really appreciate it!

Hey, get your stinking cursor off my face! I got nukes, you know.

has already volunteered and I've helped him get a target and he's taken care of it. I'm also willing to make up the difference, but with PnP games only. Actually if you want to be a volunteer Santa, please contact me and I'll make a PnP game for you...of your choice (kind of...I have some restrictions). Sound like a deal?

Spain (for real): 1
USA: 2
Poland: 1
Ukraine: 1, but almost certainly resolved by original Santa
UK: 1, but also almost certainly resolved by original Santa

So...if anyone is interested...I can try to set you up as a replacement Santa! I'm still trying final avenues of approach, but on the whole I've given up much hope for these sad 4...
