Click here to view THE LIST!
  • Players can still volunteer to be Secret Odins for unclaimed players until DECEMBER 24! It is highly recommended that all Secret Odins obtain their gifts by that date.
  • GIFT EXCHANGE WILL COMMENCE ON DECEMBER 26. All participants are to meet around the sleigh near Lutie's entrance to do the trades. You will be giving the gifts directly to your chosen player(s). Players whose names are not claimed will be removed from the list on December 25, but they are free to attend the event if they choose to. Christmas fireworks, Santa Suits, and Santa Hats are encouraged.
  • There will be an audio side of the event taking place in the iRO RaidCall's Music Room channel. Feel free to join the RaidCall for the complete experience.
  • As we want to limit the amount of lag everyone gets, please DO NOT USE SKILLS during the event. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Now that we've got ourselves a list of (102) players and there are still people volunteering to be Secret Odins, we will now start planning the actual event.

During the event, I'll read off everyone's in-game name (hence why I required it for gift registration) from THE LIST. Here is how the event will progress:
  • First, I will read off the in-game name of all claimed players. I'll be typing the character's name in-game as well as read it aloud in the iRO RaidCall. I will NOT be calling out the names of the Secret Odins so all Secret Odins should pay attention to which player names I call out.
  • At that time, both the player and the Secret Odin will walk up to the sleigh to perform the exchange.
  • Once everyone has received their gifts, players may then mingle and get to know their Secret Odins. Christmas music will be played in the iRO RaidCall
  • HAVE FUN!
As you are all well aware, the iRO community consists of not only players from the USA but all over the world from Asia to Europe. Therefore we must now decide on a good time (PST) when we can all meet. I know some players have suggested having the event split up into several meeting times to accommodate all players, but I would prefer it if everyone met at one set time to make it easier for Secret Odins to meet and gift their players. (In case players are available for a certain time, but their Secret Odins aren't.)

Official event time is now 10PM CST! If you are unable to attend the event, you may set up a meeting after the 26th to do the gift exchange.

9 pm PST would be ideal for me (my usual wake up time). I don't mind if it starts at 8 pm, any earlier and I will be late. I mean I love you all very much, but I need my beauty sleep. c:

Probably tell us what time you're gonna be available too. No point doing the event if the host can't attend during the set time, eh?

I suggest you to make a separate list of the claimed and unclaimed ones.

It's very noble of you to try to find a time that suits all timezones and I hope you'll find one, but I think it's very realistic that there is no time that suits all parts of the world. Especially if the event is two hours long. If you have to choose one timezone that unfortunately gets left out, please don't be afraid to make it Europe. I don't want us to always be a bother to the US and I'm already dreading the militant "Are you going to just forget about us?! You Americans are all the same!" comments from victim-role-loving, ever Anti-Americanist Europeans. I'd say it's alright to ask the European participants to go a little bit out of their way to attend the event during early morning hours, especially if the share of Europeans among the participants is very small (which I expect it to be). Conversely, it's would be really strange to hold the event at a time that doesn't suit the US because you can expect Americans to far outnumber other nationalities in the pool of participants.

 

Besides, it's no problem for Europeans to be late for work the next day. Our economy is already completely goofed up due to the French socialists, so it won't make a difference if a few people miss work. :heh:

This made me laugh more that it should have.

I'm not sure if I'll be doing anything that day, but I'd at least like to see a consensus about what time frame would be more suitable. Last year, the event was held at 10PM PST and lasted for 3 hours, but I still soldiered on despite it being way late into the night for me. (Currently in the CST timezone so PST players shouldn't have to stay up too long this year.)

No, hold on to the gift until I do the after-event follow-up. Last year I found that I am unable to stand in as a substitute, so every Secret Odin will be giving their gift to their recipients this year instead of me.
