How can level up in this page?
Comment has been collapsed.
You must beat the boss.
But seriously, read FAQ.
Best. Explanation. Ever.
Thank you :)
making gas or giving games to other people..if u want to grow faster try to make gas of unbundled games
If I pass gas in the correct direction, do I go up in levels?
already given freely during mass and frequency does have a diminishing return
Its like any game with a leveling system. Repeat the main activity (gifting). You will earn cv (the equivalent of xp in this analogy) and level up.
But all the relevant information is available on this site. Check FAQ! :)
Seeing as you are new here, welcome to SG.

The answer to a lot of the questions new users have can be found by using the search function in the upper left hand side.
A few interesting links for new user:
And, maybe in a bit of time... Unlucky-7
First: be online. Then create giveaways (no fake ones!), repeat it, profit.
It seems people already answered your question: check the FAQ and the other links igel2005 nicely provided there.
So... well, just to add another "welcome to SteamGifts", I guess!
Edit: forgive some of our terrible, terrible jokes. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. :D
The first "how do I level up" of 2022. Neat!
As others have said, give away games to level up. Click here to get started. It only takes one giveaway to reach level 1. A few more to reach level 2. Consider buying some bundles and giving away the games from the bundle that you don't want. Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVEAWAY GIFT LINKS. Always give away Steam Keys to avoid risking your account being canceled on the sites where you buy your bundles.
Personally, I go to Fanatical and buy a few bundles every couple months (including mystery bundles usually, despite only ever getting one game from them that I really wanted to keep)... activate the ones from the bundle I want, whatever's left I give away. I'm nearly to level 7 (10 is max) from literally only ever doing that for a year. Each level is harder to get than the previous level, but that's to be expected. I could go up faster if I gave more away. I actually currently have a decent sized backlog of games to post because I only ever do a few at a time (except when I do a mystery bundle giveaway train, that usually comes out to 20 games in one shot).
Well, as Blaidd has opened the topic of strategy or method...
Am I right to think that it's better to offer a game when it isn't on sale at Steam? Taking Blaidd approach of getting a bundle from Fanatical... if the title is currently on sale also at Steam, I believe it's better to wait for the Steam sale of that title to end before making your GA. Is that right?
no not really.
SG gets the price for CV calculation directly from steam. it takes the base price for a game, not the "on sale" price, i believe. changes the base price so does your received CV... even after the GA ended.
which can also be a reason why sometimes it happens that ppl "loose" levels: the price dropped on steam.
this is independent from the bundled/free status of a game. this status has a fixed date after which a game gets only 15% or no CV at all (which can also happen retroactively) but CV change due to price change is ever on going.
Ah, thanks for clearing that up for me.
Now I won't feel I should sit on my bundles when I first get them.
