I think the option to have a wish list on our profiles would be really cool. I was thinking something like a box with Wish List in fancy letters on top
However the wishlist would have to have only items that people on YWO can give you, for examples books(virtual) from the bookstore, crits, new guides, answers to threads. It may be whatever as long as it is not something irrelevant like: laptop, money, etc.
I don't know if this is a good idea or if it's even possible to have something like that on our profiles. So please tell me what you think

Neat idea. Do you mean, like, for Christmas? So we could give each other gifts we want? I'm not sure about the idea of a year-round wishlist, but having one just for December is a neat idea.

Well, we could buy books for each other. Like, we put our virtual book wishlists in it and we can buy them for each other and donate them on Christmas. Or, even more fun, we could have a Secret Santa!

A wish list we can easily add, probably 12 days before Christmas, so it starts with the other Christmas stuff.

But a Secret Santa...I can't think of how we would send anonymous messages to each other.

Oh! I figured out how we could have a secret santa. Everyone who wanted to participate would post in a thread that we could make for it. Then one of the admins, or somone who wants to do this, would PM everyone with another participating user's name. The admins, or whoever is doing this, could draw a random name for themeselves. And voila! We have a Secret Santa on our forum, what do you guys think?
