    Has anybody thought about organising a Harpoon secret santa? I'd join in if we do that. Could be lots of fun

    We actually host a staff one every year, if there's an interest in one through the community, we can see about running one soon.

    Honestly, I like the idea, but I feel like it is too late to implement.

    It's an idea for next year though. after the holiday period we should get some poll going round to see how many would be interested.
    Would you be open to the idea of doing something like Imgur's yearly secret santa where people send and recieve IRL gifts (even if a trial was just tf2 based), or would this idea be only limited to the in game items?

    I personally think we should keep it to TF2 items

    I will be organizing a TF2 secret santa. Players who want to participate should contact me on Steam. If Harpoon gives me permission, I'll make a thread about this on the forums as well if not then I'll track everything in a Google Sheet.

    As joe said it's too late to implement something now. If anything it's around the date when gifts should be getting sent as people would be going away for christmas holidays.
    Also It would be more beneficial to have a properly organised thing that's prepared far in advance than a spontaneous thing right now.

    I already have people who signed up so it's not too late and it will work out fine. It's nothing Harpoon Official so not sure why you even comment on it if you don't participate.

    There was no previous mention of you already going and setting one up. And how does it not being harpoon official somehow make my eligibility to give an opinion invalid?
    I was just saying that if you were just starting to get it up and running that there might be too small a pool of participants, however as you've now said you already started getting names, so my opinion based on the old knowledge doesn't hold up. :p

    Eight people joined the Secret Santa. While it might be a small player pool, it still works.

    Exactly. You've already got a pool, which you didn't explain. I was saying that there might be a pool that was "too small" specifically, like maybe 3 or 4 people. But again, not a problem anymore.
