That would work, but it's how people would communicate with the secret Santas which is the problem.

Actually, maybe we could make a new account which can't do anything but PM people. And each member would send the messages through that account.

And to make sure people don't try to deceive anyone by sending messages to the wrong person, each person would be given a password to include in their PMs through the secret santa account. How's that sound?

Nobody communicates with their santas. To stay secret, the santas all use one "Secret Santa" account to send their messages.

But everyone's a secret santa to someone... and why do they need to send messages?

Hold on, which version of Secret Santa do you have in mind? The one-day-one-gift one?

Because I was thinking of the one where people are given anonymous messages over several days, and try to guess who their Secret Santa based on the messages. And then on the last day they get a present if they guessed right.

Oh I see, I didn't know of that version. Well that works but it seems too much of a contest and I was thinking it'd be nice if everyone got something if they participated, so how about we alter it a bit? How about the day they guess it right, they get the gift. And if they don't guess it for a long time, say it's already christmas and they haven't guessed right yet, then they will just get the present and the santa will be revealed to them on the last day that we set for this. Wait...did that make sense?

EDIT: well what do you think Andy?

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.
