So I'm kinda annoyed, because I like taking longer shower once in a while to relax, but my bathroom is so small, and so badly ventilated, that it leaves me with steam filled room. Also, because the whole room gets warmer, it makes me sweat despite having just showered, which makes it all pretty pointless.

Anyway, I just wanted to vent :p

Oh, there are also gifts. Mr crane likes bringing them when it doesn't carry other stuff. This time, it's 5+ gifts for 5+ peeps.
Ends in ~48h.

EDIT: Due to many people being apparently stuck at 1st step, I'm giving you not one, not two, but 3 hints at the same time! :o
3 hints in one

EDIT 2: SOLUTION

Not without a potato
I got a potato already, but I want to eat it too...

Man, it seems that I am too stupid to figure this out 😅
I did figure out a part of the puzzle, I think, but I just can't figure out the rest haha

Still, have a bumpy cat!

Well, look on the bright side- you're getting a free sauna out of it. ;P
Also my parents keep insisting that sweat is somehow "cleaner" if it's after I've taken a shower. (Although I'm pretty sure that part is total bullshit to attempt to get me to shower more.)

Do you know any interesting spots for birdwatching around Warsaw besides Stawy Raszyńskie and Kampinoski Park Narodowy? You look like a person who might know. xD

I'm form the other side of the river :p
And not even from Warsaw, so sorry, can't help with that :/
Though now that I heard of Stawy Raszyńskie for the 1st time (I think), I'm definitely gonna check them out in the future :3

Solution:
Part 1:
Every comment on SG has permalink button. It gives out a 7 character code. If you hover your cursor over the photo, you'll see "go/kBFzIae", which is basically a part of link to a comment with part 2. Enter the link in your browser to get to part 2 :).
Part 2:
Right side: Really? You've never seen rain?
Left side: XVII. means 17 - it's a roman number. 17th letter of Latin/Roman alphabet is q. I added a dot there, because it's how a number is marked as ordinal number in my language hoping it would make you think "17th what exactly?" I believe the dot misfired, because it's something I use it so mindlessly that despite having seen ordinal nubers for 3 other languages, I forgot that it's not universal practice. However, given that people generally know what they are looking for in the puzzles, many have figured this out anyway, or maybe even in spite of missing my "help"
Equation: 5 characters. Just like giveaway character code. Big and small rectangles. Just like small and big letters, which are the only 2 options besides numbers in such a code. Need I say more?

PS: Sorry for taking a while to post a solution. I was postponing it due to being busy irl, despite the fact that it took only couple minutes to write this.
I genuinely thought it would be a very easy puzzle, but apparently not many people have ever felt the need to use permalinks (even though they are what's in the small white arrow in green circle that takes you to latest comment in the discussion - so you might have been using them since forever).
All in all, I really hope you had fun. :)
Giveaways are over, so congrats to all that finished, cheers, and till the next insidious puzzle I conjure o/
And 42nd comment contains the answers. Noice :3

Thanks for the solution, although you missed the part about how on earth do you find a certain comment only by its code from permalink without knowing the exact discussion where it can be applied. I tried all of your discussions and didn’t find the comment by permalink. I also didn’t find it by googling it.

You don't need to know the discussion/giveaway it applies to. Right-click any Permalink (at the end of any comment) and "Copy link address" then paste it in a new tab, and replace the 7 characters (which he explains how to find in Part 1 of his comment here), and then hit enter.

Hmm, I did exactly that and nothing happened.

For me, it opens the first post in the discussion topic I am applying the permalink to (when I use it to overwrite the permalink to your comment, for instance, it opens the first post in this discussion, that’s all).

Weird, it works for me.

Example of "Copy link address" (your above comment): https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/ZEM5cX3
Then you delete the 7 characters, and put the 7 characters he provided "kBFzIae" and you get: https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/kBFzIae

I see. Thank you. Well, when I click on Permalink, I get this: https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/Ava9A/leaving-steamgifts-giveaways-ended-solution-posted/search?page=2#vfG3vR9, and after replacing the code to https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/Ava9A/leaving-steamgifts-giveaways-ended-solution-posted/search?page=2#kBFzIae and opening it it doesn't provide the intended comment. I see now that I should have not clicked on Permalink to copy URL but copied it straightaway. It was not obvious to me there might be a different URL.
