One way to handle this is to wait until 11:59pm CST 12/31 to post one's list, but as mentioned, Mahaloth came up with a way of submitting lists secretly before the deadline, with the lists submitted that way being revealed by the DM on January 1. A lot of people took advantage of that in this year's game.
You know, I do think that a secret list is taking things too seriously.

I want to encourage participation but that means I'd be posting someone's list for them on 1/1. And I have things I'd rather be doing the morning after my birthday.

If not having secret lists would stop someone from playing I'll take them, so just PM me the list and I'll put it aside in a special file.
