Just wanted to know any active Indian members or steam gift group
(No giveaway here)
Comment has been collapsed.
I am an Indian mate. As for as I know there are quite a few of our countrymen here on steam gifts. There is no particular active SG group specific for Indians but you can try to restrict the gifts by selecting country. I did it to give steam gifts as our steam pricing doesn't allow for gifting most of the other regions.
Looks like the site isn't popular in India
If I had a penny every time Indian uses a VPN, I'd had... um... a shitload of pennies!
Really? O.o Why indians use VPN?
I.e. TikTok is banned in India, and apparently not every person in India agrees that if the governments of China and India don't get along that everyone else would now have to hate each other too.
Man I don't know about relationships between India and Chine, between Brazil and Spain, between Australia and Iseland. I'm not politician with knowledge of all the World relationships, politics, culture, etc
Thanks for answer Indians use it to use TikTok
Isn't SG country setting synced with steam's country setting?
Regardless, wouldn't it rather backfire, since if VPN users win region restricted games, they wouldn't be able to activate them?
Just make a India only giveaway on level 0 public for 4 weeks and you will know
What about someone from india with a bunch of bots?
people with a bunch of bot its not related with a country. I mean, he wants to know if there are active members from that country, most by region price diferences (I think) not to detect who are rules breakers.
maybe not level 0… but he can try with a level 2 GA restticted, knowing that people who already have the game will not enter, and may have the game "hidden" for already owned
This may come as a surprise, but it is not very familiar to Indian people.
I think there may be more than a few people connecting from the U.S., but I can't tell the difference.
Those from the Middle East sometimes celebrated local Muslim festivals by handing out prizes.
I think I've only seen one person celebrating an Indian festival...once before.
It was a festival with lots of kids in some town somewhere.
It might be easier to discover such people's behavior if it were a common festival time in some country.
I think I have heard from SG folks from India about a birthday celebration in India where people get white cake smeared on their faces.
My birthday is coming up soon, but please don't give me that.😉
As far as I tested, I barely managed to find an Indian who on my giveaway, and this was after region-locking.
Forgot about smaller neighboring countries such as Bhutan and Nepal who are unlikely to have Steam accounts.
It's not in the top 25 countries on the users stats.
Last region restricted giveaway I did 3 years back saw 17 entries in total.

have to check my profile for giveaway lol, i dont know how to link image with URL
This should help
btw, it's a popular game and the GA level is 0. So might be a fairly good measure.
haha kept it at 0 specifically as it's region locked to our country and i dont see too many people active here
Even then I am surprised it doesn't much entries yet, despite being a popular game. Maybe most people already own it. Also, GAs gain most entries towards the end.
Regardless, even if you region restrict to just India, you should still get a good amount of entries for level 1+, even 2+.
Not many. I haven't seen many around, which was a bit surprising for me.
I did two India only GA about 5 months ago, for level 2+, and got only 10 entries. Maybe it was just the game being not that desirable, but regardless there aren't many around.
I have been here for 2 years almost, and for some reason I have come across a few in the discussions in the last days, but never one before that as far as I could tell.
I don't know of any India specific SG group either.
i Used to be a part of a specific India only group couple of years back. I am not sure if it's active anymore. gotta check my steam
Was it SG group too?
i think so. i'll check and inform. maybe we can revive or form a group ourselves. haha
regional games are cheap as it is
People seem to be online on steam but the group in terms of GA seems to be dead.
I'll request them for making me a mod and maybe make GA for the group specifically after adding more people.
Doesn't seems like it's worth the effort. The group doesn't have enough members (just like SG), and there doesn't seem to be anything special about the group that would make it an attractive option for people to join.
Also, there already aren't enough Indians on SG, and limiting GAs to the group will restrict it even further.
However, if you do go through it, lemme know. I'll join. I am planning on buying some bundles (not sure rn), so can create a GA maybe if I happen to end up with some extra key.
ya maybe if there is enough time to manage a group after my job and personal life. haha though very difficult.
All the best!
