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
