I asked Cap about it, and he said if we can get a Mod to help we can go ahead.

Isn't this the same type of alienation you spoke of when I said customs only? ;)

It's not so much as dissapointment, I just don't think there's any one figure I'd like to receive for a custom I've made. Since NECA rereleased their Raziel I don't have anything I could call a Holy Grail.
Sure, you can say that making a custom and giving it is more important than receiving one, but I know that receiving any custom figure, even if it's not of a LC or Raybot quality, is a hello of an experience. The Phoenix I got for my Batman last year has her flaws, but I'm more than happy to have that figure in my collection, knowing that someone took my list and made an action figure especially for me. And that's awesome.
The joy of seeing new customs each day and the thought that a bunch of people like their hobby so much that they're ready to make a figure just for the hell of it - that's what Secret Santa is for me.

You clearly have need to check out other places besides the fwoosh for secret santa. They clearly have promoted greed amongst their community (not surprising seeing as this is the fwoosh we are talking about). Every other secret Santa project isn't about searching for you "holy grail" its about asking for stuff that you would like to have. Most secret santa list outside of the fwoosh are filled with figures that cost no more then 5-10 dollars. Your right the alienation is similar except I am alienating people who seem like a threat to the wholesomeness. You want to alienate people based on not having certain talents or skills (fitting we speak of alienation on Hitlers birthday) and your sense of being to good to receive or ask for something like a Marvel Universe Gladiator.

really the only compromise I ca see is that if/when someone registers they can register as being to give/receive Custom, Factory Made, Or both. Someone who registers as Giving customs may ask for Customs, Factory Made, or Either. Someone who registers as only giving factory made may only ask for factory made or either. Someone who is willing to give Either is only allowed to ask for Factory made or either. That way we don't have anyone sending factory made but demanding customs. Only people who ask for customs only are people who are ONLY going to send customs to others

Just a query guys... What's the last word on allowing factory made figures tradeable with customs? Is it a 1:1 deal?

This whole prject has a big pending stamp on it due to issues many members are having but the way I see it is there should be two different section one for customs one for factory figs!
