Stocking Mail is NOT for Tracking

At some point in the upcoming weeks there will be a conversation over at about Stocking Mail. It usually generates confusion.

Unfortunately that confusion starts here in the tracker elf community.

So we wanted to put something out about it now so that mistakes can be avoided in the weeks ahead.

The North Pole Post Office is charged with getting Santa his mail, no matter where he is and no matter what date, time or place it may be.

Most of the time that is best handled online. Yes, many still write hand-written letters. But as time and technology has advanced messaging for Santa comes in many forms: texts, emails, messages, faxes, etc.

Several years ago the North Pole Research and Development Department invented a ground-breaking new messaging system we call Stocking Mail. When implemented the system uses a Christmas stocking as kind of a portal. If a note is put in the stocking at the right time when the system is engaged that message gets transmitted to the North Pole Post Office and thus to Santa.

Pretty cool, right?

Well, here’s what you need to understand about it.

  1. It’s not perfect. It can only handle paper. If things are written on plastic or cloth or something else it doesn’t work. Some have tried to send Santa other things via stocking mail, like cookies or food for the reindeer. That stuff doesn’t work either. In fact it all gums up the system.
  2. It only works when the system is turned on. Turning it on is a complex process that requires special facilities, lots of technical equipment and thousands of elves. For the reason, it only gets turned on for a brief period of time each year. Usually, when Elf Hugo contacts Santa to say that time or other resources are running low to keep other messaging options flowing, that is when Stocking Mail is activated. It does not get activated until and unless Santa approves it.
  3. Stocking Mail is NOT for transmitting any kind of information except messages for Santa. It could be a wish list or some sort of note for Santa – but that’s it. It is NOT for sending tracking information for Flight Command. Don’t do it. They will never see it. You must communicate with North Pole Flight Command as directed at

We want all tracker elves to know and understand the proper use of Stocking Mail. You should be prepared to explain it to “normies” out there when it is activated come December 23rd and December 24th.

Of course, the News Department at the North Pole will do their part in trying to communicate how it all works. But you know that people don’t read everything we put out. Sometimes you just have to tell them.

Stocking Mail is most useful for the little ones. They will frequently change their minds about what they want for Christmas. Or, they will remember something at the last minute that they just want Santa to know. This is why Stocking Mail was invented.

If properly used and implemented, Stocking Mail will transmit information to Santa from any stocking anywhere in the world directly to him, even while he is on the sleigh. Frequently, Stocking Mail isn’t even utilized until Santa has taken off from the North Pole.

Have questions? As them here, in the comments below or on the Elf Wall. We want everyone to understand this.

Need More Roof Reports

Elves of Sector 4 – hola!

In comparing where we are this year to last year, I am happy to report that we have more reporting elves than we did a year ago. However, I also notice that we have fewer roof reports than last year at this time.

We need to fix that.

The roof report is one of the most important that we do for Santa. From your roof reports he learns what he need to know before he gets there.

For those elves in Greenland and South America – please do a roof report soon!

In other news, I’m still looking for a good elf to be our Sector Lead in Sector 4. Please apply!


Claim the City Captain Job

Any elf can be City Captain for the city, town or village where they live. You just need to claim the job. You can do this at the City Captain Job page.

A City Captain Elf is responsible for representing the geographical operations of the North Pole in the city in which they live.

As such, they may be contacted by the North Pole to assist in leading Operation Merry Christmas for Santa Claus and the North Pole in the months, weeks and days leading up to Christmas.

The City Captain assumes responsibility for local recruiting efforts of new elves and in communicating, training and executing elf operations locally.

Santa would like as many city captains as possible.

As City Captains claim the jobs I will post announcements about once a week between now and Christmas. We will also work with Elf Max to see that points and badges are set up in your profile.

If you have questions please post in the comments below or on the Elf Wall.


Personal Tracker Reports

Personal Tracker Reports are reports about you. The Elf Supervisors use your submitted information.

As I was in Norway this week dealing a little bit with the situation with Sector 3 Elf Rolf showed me a big wall of pictures of tracker elves. That’s what he does with the Elfie Selfies you send him. He puts it up on his wall and labels each picture with your elf name.

In talking with all the Elf Supervisors this week I learned they all use the information you submit differently. But they all use it.

They also all said we don’t ask often enough to have that information update. So that’s what I’m asking for today.

When you get an opportunity, please send in all three of these reports (they are linked below):

1. Elf Status Report – this tells us your availability. You should update this as your situation changes between now and Christmas.

2. Elfie Selfie – this is a picture of you, hopefully in front of your Christmas tree, your Santa tracking map or at your home tracking center. The Elf Supervisors LOVE these pictures. Make sure your parents/guardians/wife/mother/significant other are okay with this.

3. Home and Family Report – this is a report shared with Santa, out of concern for all you live with.

None of these are **required**. But it sure is nice to have them.

Ask any questions you have in the comments below.


Special Instructions for All Trackers

Hello, Trackers – Crash here.

I wanted to give you an update on some things and to provide some instruction of things we can be doing between now and Thanksgiving.

1. Elf Chat with Santa – the chat with Santa and I will be held Saturday at 11am EST in Elf Chat at It is important that you remember what this chat is for: it’s for elf business. It’s for tracking Santa for Santa. It’s NOT for asking Santa for things for Christmas or about his favorite cookies or about why you didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas. We need to all be ready to talk about our jobs as elves, what Santa needs for his flight and exactly what is most important about Tracking Santa for Santa this year. That being said, I don’t want you to be shy in asking questions. But ask about stuff in your elf life, not your normal life.

2. Roof Reports – We’ve talked about this before but I just wanted to remind you. One of our most basic tracker reports is the roof report. Elf Roger at North Pole Flight Command tells us the time in getting short and we need to get these in as soon as possible. Report on roofs that you can see all around you. Only do it from the ground. Take pictures if you can. Be as thorough as possible. Be prepared if someone from North Pole Flight Command contacts you to ask questions.

3. Account Activity – Elf Moe and team are doing a great job making sure only North Pole Elves are on community features such as the Elf Wall. They’ve got a mandate from Santa. If you’re new, get your profile and Elf name in line. There are lots of elves around to help you. Inactive accounts are getting deleted all the time. By this point in the year you should be logging in at least once a week, if not more. If you don’t your account could be deleted.

4. City Captains – I am pleased to announce a new process for those wanting to be a City Captain. To be a City Captain all you will need to do going forward is to claim it for the city or town you live in. Elf Sandy will soon be posting a new form that will allow you to do it. Elf Resources will check to make sure nobody else has already claimed it, but this move should more or less clear up the log jam for this elf job.

5. Other Elf Jobs – we want to fill the Country and State/Province Representative positions right away. Please apply if interested.

Between now and Thanksgiving there may not be a lot of instruction coming from me or the Supes. That’s by design. After Thanksgiving is a different story.

Please check in often, elves.

Thank you.

Alert for All Elves in All Sectors

Attention all Trackers: In a conversation this morning with Elf Roger Star, Director of North Pole Flight Command, he referenced this posted news at North Pole Flight Command.

Flight Command is working to meet Santa’s requests for changes to the sleigh. It will require some assistance from us over the next couple of days. If you can report from your local area to meet this need it would be very helpful.

The sleigh will be made lighter, which will require re-testing it in certain weather conditions. While it is anticipated that the changes Santa wants will not result in performance problems with the sleigh Elf Roger wants to erase any doubts by putting the sleigh through some rigorous testing in adverse weather conditions. To do that, they need to know where severe weather may be in the forecast over the next few weeks.

They are asking all trackers to research weather forecasts for any severe weather events – it can be rain, snow, wind, hail, tornados, blizzards – anything extreme.

Their plan is to put the modified sleighs – some loaded, some not – directly in the path of as much severe weather as they can find.

I have already alerted the Elf Supervisors to this request. They may be posting specifics to their sector over the next 10-days or so. The goal is to get enough flights tests done in these areas over the next three weeks to discover performance issues and make adjustments.

You can help by:

1. Checking your local weather DAILY.

2. IF there is any sign of extreme weather forecast for your area, copy and paste a weather link in the weather report form and send it in.

All staff at the Regional Tracking Centers are working on this too and will be looking for your reports.

Getting Your Elf Profile Right

Fellow Elves in the Service of Santa,

We’re getting busier. With new elves comes a bit of chaos. There are questions and concerns. I appreciate the help of elves who have been here in years past to help bring the new elves up to speed.

As we work with new elves I’m asking ALL elves to please do the following:

1. Update your profile. To do that, go to “Elf Profile” under the login button at the top.

2. On the submenu bar click on the down arrow on the right and select “Profile Settings”:

Profile Settings

3. On that page select the green icon for “Profile Avatar”. This is the little picture that represents YOU. Every elf needs an avatar. If you can’t find one or don’t have one, please let me or Max or really anyone know, we’ll help you get one.

4. Once that is set up go to the pink icon on the Profile Settings page. This is the “cover” for your profile – the long horizontal picture that serves as the background on your profile header. That image needs to be larger than 1350 px wide and at least 350 px tall. Again, if you don’t have one, let me know and we’ll help you get one.

5. Then go into the Elf Info area and add the word “Elf” in front of your name. For example, my name is Moe so my elf info says “Elf Moe” in the name field. Every elf MUST have the word “Elf” in front of their name.

If your profile is not updated to these specs before Sunday October 22nd your account will default to “retired”, which limits your site access. You don’t want that if you want to be active tracking Santa for Santa in the months ahead.

Retired accounts CAN be restored within 90 days. But to restore it you need to be prepared to get your elf profile in line with the above.

Retired accounts are deleted after 90 days.

This is just elf business. It’s nothing personal. Santa likes a tidy house and this just helps keep things in order.

If you have any questions, please ask. We’re here to help.

Transcript of the Elf Supervisor Chat

Elf Crash Murphy and several of the Elf Supervisors met in Elf Chat to answer questions of the elf community. This is a transcript of their conversation:

Elf UlanHello, Elf Rolf!
Elf MaxCrash, did I miss anyone?
Elf UlanHi, Elf Crash! XD
Elf Rolf JanssenHello everyone
Elf Crash MurphyI think we are good to go
Elf Randi HumeHi everyone!
Elf MaxOk, everyone…lots of people here, I’ll do the best I can to keep order
Elf MaxWe want this to be a very open chat
Elf MaxWe’ll try to take it one at a time, but we want you guys to ask your questions. The supervisors as I understand it do NOT have an agenda. This is all about your questions.
Elf MaxSo…that being said….who has a question?
Elf CrusaderI do.
Elf MaxOk, fire away
elfbubbleteahey guys!
Elf CrusaderElf Pinky, if an elf moves, do they have to reapply for a city captain position
Elf MaxGo ahead, Crusader
Elf CrusaderOr any position
Elf PinkyGood question, Crusader. We should talk about it, yes. We don’t want to kick someone out. I heard you were moving
Elf CrusaderIs my question not showing?
Elf Crash MurphyCity Captain is very location specific. So move to a city where there is no City Captain, Crusader
Elf UlanElf Randi, how are my reports so far? I want to know what weather report you need, wind, temperature, etc.
Elf CrusaderI am ma’am. To Iowa
Elf Randi HumeElf Ulan. Your reports are excellent. The biggest help in reporting the weather right now is the forecast for the next couple of days. With the sleigh in our sector right now, it helps
Elf MaxGreat questions!
Elf Chocolate Snowflakeself pinky what is your favorite thing about Christmas time?
Elf PinkyI heard all the elves in Sector 3 are shorter than 5’2″. Is that true?
Elf CrusaderCrash, what do you expect of us this year?
Elf PinkyI love tracking Santa. It’s my life, Elf CS
Elf Rolf JanssenNo, that’s not true, Pinky. I hear all the elves in Sector 5 wear pink.
Elf Crash MurphyI’ll hold off on answering that for now, Crusader. I think Elf Pinky should answer that
Elf PinkyI hope they do, Rolf!!!
Elf Crash MurphyYou two….
Elf CrusaderPinky, what do you expect of sector 5 this year
Elf PinkyExpectations? I would expect our elves to be present and paying attention. Ready for anything
Elf PinkyFor the record, we’re in good shape right now. Right on target
Elf UlanThank you, Elf Randi. So I can keep my style. Do you need to send the report tomorrow or Tuesday this time?
Elf PinkyOctober is going to be a busy time for us
Elf CrusaderDo we know when Santa will be home?
Elf Randi HumeElf Ulan, I prefer the weekly reports any time on Tuesday
Elf Crash MurphyNo clue about Santa, Crusader. People are starting to talk.
Elf MaxPinky, when is the best time to send in chimney inspections?
Elf PinkyThat’s an October thing, Max. Early enough to still have good weather but late enough for the information to be current for Santa
Elf UlanElf Randi, thank you! I’ll send it on the regular day. How about the local Christmas reports I send?
Elf MaxIs Sector 5 still the biggest one in terms of numbers of elves?
Elf PinkyYes, by far.
Elf notJackI have a question for Elf Pinky
Elf PinkyGo ahead, Jill
Elf PinkySorry, Elf NotJack
Elf Chocolate Snowflakeswow that’s alot of elves here in sector 5
Elf notJackUhh
Elf notJackOkay so, I’m not quite sure what I’m supposed to be doing right now in terms of reports could you explain your expectations?
Elf Crash MurphyIf you wanna get under Pinky’s skin, just call her Red
Elf Rolf JanssenHey Red!
Elf CrusaderHow am I personally doing so far pinky?
Elf PinkyReport expectations are pretty light. I’d like to see a weather report once a week right now, just to help with test flights
Elf PinkyWe want as well to be sending in reports that notes BIG changes locally since last Christmas
Elf Chocolate SnowflakesI have a question for pinky
Elf notJackOkay thank you!
Elf PinkyAlso, any upcoming road construction would be great to note as well
Elf PinkyBut I’m not asking for a ton of specifics right now, that changes after Oct 1 or if I get something new from North Pole Flight Command
Elf Crash MurphyGuys, as me that question at the end of the chat….
Elf UlanElf Randi, please tell me about the Local Christmas reports. My area is still very quiet, and my reports are okay or not
Elf CrusaderAm I still sector lead?
Elf Chocolate Snowflakeswhere i live don’t have an chimney and the area of where i live doesn’t’ have chimneys either what do i do if you call a chimney report?
Elf Randi HumeIt is quiet in many areas, Elf Ulan. But things are changing quickly. I’m noticing in my travels a lot more Christmas out there. Online and offline, people are talking a lot more about Christmas
Elf PinkyGREAT questions Elf CS. If you have no chimneys just don’t send in a report. No need to confuse things by reporting on something that isn’t there. This is a common thing.
Elf CrusaderWhat if there’s no test flight in your area?
Elf MaxWill we have the same Sector Lead in Sector 5 as we did last year? (Sorry, Crusader)
Elf PinkyYes, Crusader is our Lead
Elf CrusaderNo problem max
Elf Rolf JanssenThe test flights are more in your areas than you know. There are 12 sleighs flying out there. They aren’t always together
Elf Randi HumeWe sure have a lot of flights in Sector 1 right now
Elf UlanElf Randi, thank you, I’m looking forward to changing the time, we will see when it happens!
Elf MaxHow much do the test flights matter, Pinky?
Elf PinkyThey are great for training. It feels kind of low key because those flights are going so well. They don’t need or ask much from us. At least for now.
Elf Crash MurphyThat could change though.
Elf MaxWhat do you mean, Crash?
Elf Crash MurphyWhat I hear is that that test flights are doing so well, they are pushing the agenda forward. Not even sure if it will be flown come December, They are moving fast. So keep track of them
Elf UlanElf Randi, yes, they came to my area too! XD
Elf PinkyWhat could they ask of us, Crash?
Elf CrusaderPinky, is there anything that I should be doing as sector lead right now?
Elf Crash MurphyWeather mostly. But I hear rumors they may engage our trackers in some….special assignments.
Elf CrusaderSpecial assignments?
Elf PinkyCrusader, you’re doing it. When new elves come on board, become their friend. This goes for all of you. We can all do a better job of sharing information and skills
Elf UlanElf Crash, do you know Santa’s sleigh is with the test flights now?
Elf CrusaderHappy to do so , pinky!
Elf Crash MurphyCan’t say anything more than that, Crusader. But what would you think if they sent a test flight right over your house and told you it was coming. Would you watch?
Elf Chocolate Snowflakeself crash how heavy is the sleigh?
Elf Crash MurphyElf Ulan, I have no idea about that. Santa’s got a different agenda. I don’t think he is with the test flights, no.
Elf CrusaderI would crash
Elf Crash MurphyChocolate Snowflakes, I have no real idea. At least 15 pounds.
Elf PinkyI have a feeling that Santa is back in Sector 5. Just a feeling.
Elf Chocolate Snowflakescool
Elf PinkyOk, Crash – I’ll ask it. What are your expectations of us?
Elf Randi HumeI think it’s a little heavier than 15 pounds, Crash
Elf Crash MurphyMy expectations. Ok, listen up.
Elf CrusaderFrom what I hear, Santa has a friend who lives in Minnesota who he’s been visiting
Elf UlanElf Crash, thank you, okay, he got a different agenda. Do you know what it is?
Elf Crash MurphyRight and for the next month ONLY, I’d like the Elf Supervisors to focus a little bit on Elf recruiting
Elf Crash MurphyWe don’t need a lot of new elves.
Elf Crash MurphyBut I think making a small effort to have fresh eyes and new elves with us is a good idea
Elf Crash MurphySanta does not want MILLIONS of new elves like we did in past years….just a few
Elf Crash MurphySo be selective
Elf Rolf JanssenOk
Elf Crash MurphySanta doesn’t sound to me like he’s coming back to the North Pole soon
Elf Crash MurphyI’m guessing…Thanksgiving, maybe? I just don’t know
Elf Crash MurphyBUT, when he gets back he’s going to have instruction for us
Elf CrusaderWhen do things start kicking into high gear for us?
Elf Crash MurphyMy experience with him going on walkabout is that he always comes back with very specific information in certain areas
Elf Crash MurphyHigh gear? Really high gear comes November
Elf Chocolate Snowflakeswhen is a good time to send our christmas list?
Elf UlanElf Crash, maybe Santa will not visit Canada this year with Mrs. Claus?
Elf Crash MurphyAnd I think Santa may have some special stuff for us. I just want us to be ready for it. It could be different because it is a walkabout year
Elf MaxElf Chocolate Snowflakes, I think Elf Hugo talked about wish lists in this morning’s North Pole Chat
Elf CrusaderHow does mrs. C feel about Santa be gone for so long?
Elf Crash MurphyYes, it sounds like Santa’s not doing Thanksgiving in Canada. Which is WEIRD
Elf Crash MurphyMrs. Claus is a very strong lady. She’s the best. I don’t know how she feels about Santa being gone but I can tell you that Santa is a lot more active right now and talking to all of us by phone a great deal. I talked to him on Thursday
Elf CrusaderIs he watching this chat?
Elf MaxDid Santa give you any special instructions FOR US?
Elf UlanElf Crash, thank you for telling it!
Elf Crash MurphySanta will read this transcript but I have no reason to believe he is online right now.
Elf Crash MurphySanta did not give any special instructions. I actually asked him that and he told me to just listen to my boss, Elf Roger Star of North Pole Flight Command
Elf UlanI hope Santa would be here!
Elf CrusaderCool
Elf Chocolate Snowflakescool
Elf Crash MurphyI know Santa was here last weekend…or at least a few weeks ago. He seemed pretty happy with his visit
Elf Crash MurphyI would not be surprised if he hopped back on every now and then going forward. We’re in the season now. Santa is engaged.
Elf CrusaderThat’s good to hear
Elf MaxOk, we’re over time – any last questions for Crash or the Elf Supervisors?
Elf MaxSupes, any last words?
Elf CrusaderWould any of you like to be on one of my podcasts
Elf PinkyFrom what I can see every elf here is very experienced. You know what to do. I’ll do better to let you know what we need.
Elf Randi HumeI will focus on some new elf blood going forward, Crash. I’m proud of my team!
Elf UlanThank you, Elf Crash, and supervisors! I’m so delighted to see you today! I hope we will see you again soon! XD
Elf Rolf JanssenI think it still may be possible to get Santa here for a tracker-elf only chat. He and I talked about that a long time ago. I know our elves want that very much
Elf Chocolate Snowflakesbye
Elf MaxThat would be very cool. Crash, is that possible?
Elf Crash MurphyYes sir. I talked about it with him too. Looks like December though
Elf PinkyI’ll be here for that!
Elf MaxOk, that’s a good note to end it on. Thank you everyone for being here!
Elf PinkyThanks everyone!
Elf Randi HumeGood job everyone!
Elf Rolf JanssenSemper Fi!
Elf UlanElf Randi, Thank you so much!
Elf CrusaderLater everyone
Elf notJackThan you supervisors!
Elf Chocolate Snowflakesyou’re welcome bye.
Elf Crash MurphyThanks, Max. Nice work.

Come to the Elf Supervisor Chat

Hi y’all!

We have finally received buy-in from all our Elf Supervisors for a joint chat for all sectors this Sunday at 11am EST.

We know that time is not convenient for many people. It is simply impossible for us to find a time that works for everyone.

But, with North Pole Chat scheduled with Elf Hugo scheduled this Sunday at at 10am we feel that we have the best chance to get folks together for a chat with the Elf Supervisors right after that.

So after you chat it up with Elf Hugo on Sunday morning at, just come over here to to chat with the Elf Supervisors.

I have ask the Elf Supervisors to make this an open chat. That means YOU will be driving the discussion – not them. Don’t expect any big announcements and a huge list of instructions to come from this chat. This chat is about YOUR questions for THEM.

I might be there, lurking in the background. I want the focus to be on the Supervisors.

Elf Max will moderate the chat and will be able to answer questions, too.


Santa Tracker Chat

Hola, Sector 4

I send you greetings from the all-new Regional Tracking Center for Sector 4 located in San Nicolas, Aruba.

I’m not going to lie: this is paradise.

We’ve already had the crew out to the beach and surfing…and working hard.

We’re a little like Sector 1 in that we have a lot of contact with the North Pole Navy, although our area of concern is the Atlantic, not the Pacific. Even still, it is an honor to work with those elves. They do important stuff.

We’re getting ready for a fleet visit from them sometime in September. I’ll share news of that with you in the weeks ahead.

In the meantime, we’re just getting organized.

We’re ready for your reports and for the first few weeks we are going to focus on the weather.

It might be odd to you but we want you to send in a weather report at least once a week. We prefer to get these from you in our Sector every Wednesday.


Well, at first it is a calibration thing. We got instrumentation coming from the test flights of Santa’s sleigh and from the North Pole Navy. Also, there’s some satellite stuff going on.

You might think a weather report in August or September might not be important since Santa’s not going to be flying anywhere soon. But, for all the elements mentioned above, we really need accurate current data and forecast data from all over the Sector – especially Greenland.

So we hope you’re paying attention out there and can send in these weather reports every Wednesday.

There are more report requests to come, for sure. But we want to keep it simple for now.

We’re glad you’re aboard and we hope you stick around for the next 19 weeks as we countdown to the launch of Santa from the North Pole.

Report Form for Finding Santa

As we promised earlier last week we now have activated a report form so that tracker elves can report possible sightings of Santa.

Finding Santa

This report is a little different. It goes straight to the Finding Santa Trask Force at North Pole Flight Command.

When you send in information via this form it gets added to the database of other information recently gathered about Santa’s possible location.

This allows analysts to compare all the information.

With this mass amount of information, Elf Roger Star, Elf Agent X and other task force leaders can move elf assets from the North Pole Sleigh Fleet, the North Pole Navy, and Flight Command Scout teams to different locations.

We recognize that these reports are mostly tips. Most will likely not pan out. However, all it takes is one good report to move us closer to finding Santa.

We hope you will use this report form frequently. There are NO bad reports!

The News Department will be providing updates at least weekly. Be sure to follow breaking developments at, and right here on for ongoing information.

Thank you.

Mrs. Claus Stands in for Santa

Mrs. Claus has taken charge in the absence of Santa Claus while he goes on walkabout. News of Santa’s travels broke at yesterday.

As noted at North Pole Flight Command this morning, Mrs. Claus has set up office at Santa’s Workshop and chosen Elf Trixie to be her Chief of Staff while Santa is gone.

For the Elf Community at, Elf Trixie says that Mrs. Claus will be meeting with Elf Roger Star this next week for an update on the various projects already in progress for the tracker elf community.

As for Elf Trixie, I am her boss in her regular duties, and while serving Mrs. Claus as Chief of Staff I have been told that Trixie will continue in her regular reporting duties for North Pole News and here at

We have all been told that even though Santa will be absent for a while we can expect things to carry on normally.
