Hello Farkers! I'm Paranoia-'. I currently run the TotalFark Secret Santa and Secret Cupid programs. Secret Santa has been a TotalFark success for 8 years; now, with the help of Teriaki, feckingmorons, and Frickinsweet, for the first time ever, we want to bring some of that fun to the you, the Fark Liters!


Welcome to the first annual Fark-It-All Candy Swap!


Starting today you can sign up for this site-wide swap by going to FarkItAll.tk* and filling out the questionnaire. You MUST have been a Farker for at least 6 months, or be a TotalFarker that joined TF prior to today - September 1st.

*For reasons unknown to me, some browsers, particularly FireFox, seem to have trouble with .tk links sometimes. Typically if clicking it doesn't work, manually entering either farkitall.tk, www.farkitall.tk, http://farkitall.tk or http://wwww.farkitall.tk will work. I'm sorry! I don't know why it hates us so!

If you aren't sure how a swap works, it's pretty simple: on October 1st we will e-mail all signed-up participants with their randomly-generated partner's information. Included in that information will be their allergies, desired gifts, and anything else they feel you should know. You'll buy and send a gift, then wait for yours! Hurray, that was easy! If you're worried about shipping or privacy, hold your horses. We'll get to that in a moment.

Because this is Halloween-themed the preferred gift is candy. Ideally we'd love for people to be sending unique and local candies, something you can't run down to the market and buy. That is not a requirement, however. Whether you send candy, something Halloween/scary-themed, or an LED shower head, your gift is appreciated and awesome!

INTERNATIONAL FARKERS, DO NOT FRET! I know this can be particularly difficult for you but we want you to participate in this with us! This is an American olive branch, extended to our brethren the world over, hoping to unite all Farkers, if only for a month, over their love for giving and getting gifts. So, for that reason, we have come up with a couple (hopefully) helpful options for you. If you are a Farker in the US sending to another country, consider Priority Mail International® Large Video Flat Rate priced box. Price varies depending on where you are sending it, but you can get it to Australia for about $23. That's a 9-1/4" x 6-1/4" x 2" box, with a weight limit of 4 pounds, guaranteed delivery in 5-7 days. There are also regional candies available on Amazon. As an example, I'm a HUGE fan of Crispy M&Ms. Unfortunately they are no longer available in the US and the beautiful blue wrapper has been repurposed for Pretzel M&Ms. I can go to Amazon, however, and order genuine Crispy M&Ms from Europe and get it shipped to my house for free. The downside to this, of course, is it limits the options available to you. We're still researching other options and will keep you updated as we find new choices for you. Anyone with information on international shipping into or outside of the US, please share it so we can include it in all future posts.

Non-US Farkers - if you don't want to send outside your country, that is fine! Just select "No" on the international shipping question in the form.

Anyone worried about privacy: we strongly suggest you go to Amazon and create a wishlist specifically for this swap. The purpose is two-fold: it will allow you to have some control over what you receive, and will allow you to keep your address and information private.  For more information on how to keep yourself private, click here. Please, for the love of Christ, don't have your wishlist full of $80 and $90 items.

If you do not have a wishlist, please understand that you may receive anything, at all. There are some strange-ass Farkers out there.

Rules and such are liable to change at a moment's notice. This being our first Fark-wide swap we are trying several new tools to hopefully make this a pleasant experience for everyone. We may have to add, remove, or modify options or rules on the fly to keep everyone safe and happy.

The Powers That Be are aware of this and approve of it, but this is NOT Fark-run. We are just four TotalFarkers bringing a little more weirdness to the world. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Swap, please e-mail Fa­r­k­ItA­ll[nospam-﹫-backwards]kraFdn­o­yeB*com, and/or visit our helpdesk. (This is one of our new features, introduced last Christmas. We are still working to make it as smooth as possible and welcome any feedback or suggestions!)

Alright, guys. That's the gist of it. This post, or one like it, will be made several times over the next month. We try to vary the times it is posted as we know that different people prefer to Fark at different times. Every time we post an official thread we will be around to answer questions or concerns as best we are able. If you're lost, confused, or unsure about anything, just ask!

Love and Hauntings,

Paranoia-', Teriaki, feckingmorons, and Frickinsweet

I'm scared of liters.

My nephew nearly burned down my house once playing with one.

I kinda wish I could request TF only swap partner since I'm a TFer. Not to be snobby, just...it's so scary including the whole, nasty, unwashed world of farkers.
 
2013-09-01 03:52:48 PM  
Holy crap Tolstoy that was a long post for free candy.

I signed up at http://www.farkitall.tk/
 
2013-09-01 03:55:59 PM  
I am also scared of the unwashed masses.

Liters are nice people! SecretSanta and SecretCupid are both TF only still.

=P I try to be prepared, lol.

Oh don't lie. You're just here for the cute liters.
 
2013-09-01 04:06:17 PM  
I was told not to accept candy from strangers.  and no one is stranger than the lot of you.
 
2013-09-01 04:17:02 PM  
Can you think of anything scarier than receiving a mystery package from another Farker?

Being locked alive in a box with three other people in total darkness with no room to move.

I'll give it a go. All signed up.

I can think of scant few things less responsible than eating something mailed to me by an anonymous stranger from the internet.
 
2013-09-01 05:00:18 PM  
With the international stuff:
isn't there some crap about limitations for importing foodstuffs, like how Kinder Eggs are to dangerous for US Americans.

It's okay.  We're scared of TFers.
 
2013-09-01 05:12:00 PM  
Great idea! I've had a bag of these for two years. Can't even get the neighborhood squirrels to eat 'em. Maybe they'll make some Farker happy instead.

This will end in tears and with FBI involvement.

kronicfeld: I can think of scant few things less responsible than eating something mailed to me by an anonymous stranger from the internet.


To be fair, you don't have to eat it. You can give it to your mother to eat.

The Voice of Doom: With the international stuff:

I like to live dangerously!

MurphyMurphy: This will end in tears and with FBI involvement.


One or the other, sure. Certainly not both.

Box of poop.

Yes, it's called Farking Wheaton w00t stout.

I just sent a guy named Navin R. Johnson a box of kittens. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh boy! Hallowe'en is also my birthday! - been several years since it was fun to admit that. (-:
 
2013-09-01 08:39:10 PM  
I signed up :)
(been a farker since 2002.. just dont want to pay, but I promise I am clean and I pick good candy)

:)
 
2013-09-01 08:42:58 PM  
I specifically requested no socks so something tells me I will be receiving socks full of candy

lots of us have been TFers in the past but at some point stopped giving away money
 
2013-09-01 08:56:26 PM  
I loves me a mystery package!

Practical question: what is the min/max $$$ for the gift boxes?  I don't want to be cheap, but I can't afford to send someone $100 worth of chocolate either.
 
2013-09-01 10:31:02 PM  
We suggest about $20, but have no real way of enforcing it.

Sweet!  Thanks.  Someone's gonna get a mystery package from da Duck!

There are FAQ's that may cover some of the questions! If you don't see it there, or don't want to look feel free to open a help desk ticket.
You can also open a ticket by mailing f­arkit­all[nospam-﹫-backwards]krafd­no­yeb­*com

So who wants to receive a nice box of chocolate covered roofies?

I'm one of the unwashed masses, but I've got money. And booze.
 
2013-09-02 12:38:08 PM  
I like this idea, thank you Paranoia-' et al for thinking of us dirty dirty liters. Will sign up later once I'm set up with a mailbox at my new home/workshop.

/any way this thread can get the occasional bump up the FarkUs page?

I am thoroughly washed but twice as nasty, so it balances out.

Besides, it's an event for Halloween, which is when we scary, rotten, carnivorous creatures are supposed to be able to come out and play, anyway.  Embrace diversity.
 
2013-09-02 04:39:04 PM  
Not a chance.  Not a snowball's chance in a blast furnace.

/ I was a TotalFarker for a very brief period.

Coronach - the thread will be posted/reposted several times over the next month. :-)
