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!


You can sign up for this site-wide swap by going to MUST have been a Farker for at least 6 months, or be a TotalFarker that joined TF prior to 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://www.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
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 FarkItAllkraFdnoyeB,
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

Hmmm, interesting. Might have to try this. What's the deadline to sign up? I'm guessing 10/1?

Thank you! I got the red banner and was wondering "Who the heck is this and why did they do it?!"

Ha! I appreciate it, really. =)

You want to know. How else would you know if you're supposed to drink it or not?

Any time :)


Actually it looks like I had 5 of them to gift, Fark keeps giving me subscriptions to hand out for some reason.

This is one I'm not doing.

As much as I love Halloween over every other holiday on a calendar we celebrate, just don't have the cash because I always do my Halloween Horror Movie Marathon with 12 straight hours of horror movies and too much food.

So yeah, budget is for that.

However, have fun to those who do do this. :)

I did it.

I'm scared, but I did it goddammit, and you have to as well!
 
2013-09-20 06:17:21 AM
I gave all my gifts away on Saint Clementine's Day. Probably screwed for Q-mas as well.
 
2013-09-20 10:43:12 AM
can i specify a dildo or do i have to just say 'any dildo' and hope for the best
 
2013-09-20 10:55:11 AM
I signed up!

I'm an American who is living in Canada, so here is a list of canadian candy:

Coffee Crisp
Aero (chocolate or mint)
Caramilk
Smarties (m&m like candies, us smarties are called rockets)
Twisles (gum that tastes like soap)


Also I would like to add, please use the us post office when shipping to canada. UPS holds our packages hostage until we pay an "import fee".
 
2013-09-20 02:19:51 PM
So... I'm cautiously interested in doing this (I've been watching these posts now), but am really just not sure what to put on my wish-list...

Does anyone have a sample wish-list (or experienced Farkers willing to share theirs)?

TIA
