|12:41 pm - That Wishlist Thing.|
So it's been a hell of a year, guys. I... I don't know what to say about it, except I'm both glad to see the back end of it and terrified next year will be worse. So I'm seeking refuge in capitalism, and since I've gotten actual requests to do it (which still freaks me out but okay) I'm posting the Amazon wishlists this year.
1. You're not obligated.
2. Please do not pay the Stupid Amazon price. If at all possible, buy from the used sellers or a cheap new seller. Stupid Amazon price is STUPID.
3. I've had these lists for over a decade at this point, there's some weird cruft on there, but it's still all stuff I'd genuinely like.
[EDIT] 4. I have my gifting address set up but it seems not to work for a number of people, and frankly Amazon's setup is weird and terrible and allows only "verified friends' to send stuff. This is stupid. If you really REALLY want to mail me something and can't get it working on amazon, post a comment here or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll give you my dang address manually because that's what we're reduced to these days.
I keep three wishlists.
The games list is the primary one I roll with. I can no longer promise that games received this way will be covered extensively here. I can promise you undying thanks.
The general list is for Misc Stuff. This is the place to go cheap, you can probably grab a book for a dollar or something. Woo.
Skylanders? ... Well, I am not as hype about those as I used to be. Still, they wouldn't go without love.
Also if you have spare video games you are never gonna play that you feel need a good home, talk to me about it. I can probably pay shipping for your cast-offs and I would love to have them.
... For real, though. Guys? This year, forget me. Donate to charity, Flint, somewhere that needs it more than my goddamn dragon-style pile of video games to lounge on.

Expanding on the twitulatenote I sent:
If you log into Amazon and go to your Wish List and click List Settings then click View Details then you can select Shipping Address and add one.
You have to have 'Third party shipping agreement' selected also.
Apparently this is intended to let you have a different shipping address for each wishlist.
You will need to do it for each list.
I checked it on Kaur's, and it just shows as 'use this person's gift address' during checkout.

Re: Amazon Address
I've got that set now, thank you.
