Edit: Duplicate Notes!

:new: EDIT: If you've received more than one note at this time, the note from me (Crickatoo) is the correct assignment. Sorry for the confusion!

Hello everyone! I wanted to make a quick update since there have been a few issues behind the scenes with Equine-Secret-Santa .

Firstly, I want to apologize for the delay in everything. There were some big time issues with accessing deviantART in the first week of November (when notes were originally supposed to go out) that slowed things down considerably. That was when I decided to extend the entries. It didn't seem fair that some people should be excluded when the site was barely accessible! 

Shortly after, I set forth in the random assigning process and gave my team the go ahead to start sending ESS notes. We split the note sending evenly between the 5 active moderators and the assignments began! Within 3 days, everyone on the list was sent notes. That's when we encountered the next issue.

Somehow, there were about 13 people who were left off of the list (the list is a shared google docs spreadsheet), even though they were replied to with notes confirming their entries! I'm not sure how this happened or who is responsible, but it happened and now we're in the process of trying to fix it.

If you haven't received your note yet, please send in a note to the group letting us know. We will double check that we received a note, check the spreadsheet, and somehow fix the mistake. Promise!

I can't apologize enough for the delays. I know this cuts into your time and availability to draw for your secret santa. Thanks for being patient with us :heart:

I was wondering if the notes had been sent out? Up on the front page it says they were going to be sent out November 5th but it's November 12th and I haven't gotten anything. Shrug

Hi there! It seems there was a bit of a mix up behind the scenes and several people were not added to the entry list even though they were sent notes saying their entries were confirmed. We are getting it sorted now and will send out the remaining notes shortly :heart: Thanks for being patient!

Once a year we hold a secret santa for the equine community, where various equine artists draw and receive gifts! The group exists as a place to showcase those gifts and organize rules and such :) The ESS will be open for new sign ups next October ^_^
