Please add a comment to this thread to remind me to check steam group requests.
New rule 2021-11-01:
To encourage everyone to create giveaways, and to filter out users that have stopped using steamgifts. The last person in the user list will be kicked out when member count exceed 600. You are welcome to re-apply for membership anytime if you want to get a week to increase your stats.

I applied to the group as I have less than 1000 games and I play most of the stuff in my library.
Cool idea, Daxiaz! Thanks!

Can you not walk into someone's house in Ukraine and take some?
I wish you luck with the members.
Around 700 games in my library, try at last any game i got during a giveaway, so i am applied
Hey, I applied for the group. I only ever enter ga's for games that I intent to play shortly (all my current wins have been played and beaten). I don't think I'll ever reach 1000, but who knows, maybe in a few decades XD
Now recruiting officers for the steam group. The only job is to check new members and give access if they have less than 1000 games.
(Also looking for a script that automates this activity.)

I would like to recommend a few search queries to maximize your chances of winning something you actually want to play:
Join a group that is in your favor
Exit giveaways with thousands of entries. The probability of winning is too small to bother. You only waste your points.
Enter giveaways with few entries
Always ask yourself "Will I actually play this? or is it simply my hoarding behavior that makes me enter this giveaway?"
From where did you find the search query parameters? Afaik, SG doesn't have any UI for advance search.
Good advice, but i am not so sure about the part about ignoring the 1000-entry giveaway since I one a pinball game from such giveaway...on my first day no less.
You advise on reflecting you hoarding behavior is, alas, hugely underrated. Everyone needs to but on their brakes once a while.
Day 1: 100 members. :)
Ah this again
Rewarding people with alt accounts. :P
Good luck with the group ;)
Day 2: 137 members.
Seems like I have reached most users that read the discussion boards frequently.
It is harder to reach new users and individuals that doesn't gift themselves because they do not read here. Maybe that's for the better.
Overall satisfied with the results so far. And the administration work is minimal with the scripts I have to analyze user game count.
I'd like to join!
Interesting statistics about the group:
Hello, thanks for the effort, Daxiaz. :)
This group is now officially started. Added a welcome gift to those who reciprocate.
Remember to re-sync to get added to the group here on steamgifts. About half of the members need to do this.
I have updated the steam group with useful search parameters.
An example if you only want to see relatively new games with low number of entries:
Now 186 members.
Last giveaway had 16 entries. Congratulations to the 3 winners!
We are now 201 members. :)
This group also exists:
Not sure I will stay more than a year in the group...but I play lot of games.
Welcome to the group!
I'd like to join I have many games but I intend to get games I will play!
You have 960 games according to steam. Welcome!
Thank you for letting me join!
