    I sent my details off a few days ago, although I haven't heard anything back yet.

    Is there a way to make your minifigure want list viewable?  I've made my collection and set want list public in case Santa wants some help, but haven't seen any way to make the minifigure wants public..

    I just can't wait to see the little boy or girl I'll have and grant their biggest wish, ho ho ho.

    My want list has a Carousel and the Eiffel Tower.

    Nudge, nudge...

    @hoodaddy If your collection and set wanted list is public, your minifig wanted list should also be public. Go to http://brickset.com/mycollection, and under "Minifigs Wanted", there should be a Share button. Click that, and it will take you to the publicly viewable version of your minifig wanted list. Alternatively, take this URL: http://brickset.com/minifigs/wantedby-TheOneVeyronian and replace my username with your Brickset username :o)

    Now I just have to wonder how long @rancorbait is going to take with issuing our Secret Santa recipients - nobody's really heard from him for the past week. I'm already itching to go out Secret Santa shopping so I hope it isn't too long! :oD

    Send him your details, you never know. 

    I haven't had a reply yet from a few days ago, so if he's quite busy you may still get on the list.

    @Coyotelily - Not a problem, send a message to @rancorbait and I'm sure he can add you to the list for the UK.

    @TheOneVeyronian I can view my own, but there is no link for someone else (ie Santa) from my profile page like there is for my set wanted list. I guess they would just have view their own minifigure wanted list and then replace their user name with mine to see my list. Or they can use this link I guess: http://brickset.com/minifigs/wantedby-hoodaddy

    thanks!  Anxious as well to get my secret Santa assignment..

    ^ No problem. Yeah, there isn't a minifig wanted list link option on the profile page, but that link works. Ask @CapnRex101 to send that link directly to your Secret Santa if you want to make sure it gets to whoever's buying for you :o)
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    Looks like we have a total of 31 participants  for the UK! You can make that 32 if you send me your details today @Coyotelily ;)

    @Bumblepants - Send your details to @rancorbait. I certainly have no objections to international shipping between the UK and mainland Europe and I'm sure nobody else does either.

    I have just started drawing the list for North America. There are a total of 23 participants and you will all receive your assignments in the next couple of hours or tomorrow. Be ready!

    @CapnRex101 Thanks but right now I just won't be able to do a gift properly and make it special for someone so I would rather just sit this one out until a time when i can do it well.

    Maybe I do, and you were merely fooled by my human-sized robo-exoskeleton....

    For those of us with Hamster-sized brains, can someone remind me how I construct a query to find out which sets a given member owns?

    How, for example, would I get a list of sets owned by Shib?

    I would point out that I am not buying Shib's SS pressie.
    ;o)

    Everyone in North America has received their assignment but one, who has not logged in for a couple of weeks and I have therefore removed from the draw.

    @Shib - great!  Thanks v. much!

    Hang on - isn't that 'Owned By' rather than 'Wanted'?

    Don't worry - I'll figure it out!

    Doh!  'Owned by' is what I asked for...

    I think you just substitute the "ownedby" and change it in the url to "wantedby" and you're good!  (Well, at least that worked for me!).

    you are correct. I actually used the owned by list last year as a reference for what the person owned and therefor might like as well as considering their wanted list.

    And my SS shopping is already mostly done! That felt too easy, it helps when some of a recipient's interests are quite close to your own I guess! Question is: do I try and get more, or do I take a quote from a Simpsons episode and "Quit while you're ahead"?

    I will admit that I am FAR too organised with Xmas shopping... if only I could put this level of organisation into my own collection, it would look more like a LEGO room than a bomb site*

    *Or what shop floors in the US will look like 5 minutes after Black Friday starts.

    Sent mine off today, hope it arrives okay! First time I've done a Secret Santa, struggled to stay near the guide price while also trying to offer something unexpected. Fingers crossed it's okay :)

    I was going to make a moc for a (not brickset) secret santa, until I noticed the price of of a CMF Lizard guy and CMF Robot.
