By the way, I think its name and copy should be Christmas-free so it can be used for other festivities and other situations when you have to randomly match people secretly (yet to invent).
And with optional options it could do the matches:
— 🔀 Not crossing: each participant gets another participant that can’t be the one that got them.
— 🔃 Mutually: the pairs created go both way, creating duos.
— 🆓 Freely: sometimes people gets someone who don’t have them, sometimes people who have them.
Mastodon/Fediverse #bot idea: secret Santa. 🎁
— Send it a message, public or direct, with a list of @-handles.
— The bot takes care in secret of making santas→recipients pairs from the mentioned participants.
— It sends to each participant a direct message with the name of their secret recipient.
Someone interesting in building this before December? I’m afraid I can only contribute with that concept and a profile picture 🎅

I’m quite busy these days with other projects, but I’ll try to open a repository soon enough to have a space for initial sketches, mock-ups, and issues tracking.
And eventually I might be able to work on some concept, ui, html/css, and branding, but no serious js or back-end work.
Technically, I guess the best is to have Mastodon’s back-end and offer an alternative front-end?
