We are happy to announce that we are now able to use Masafors Group of Friends fully as a SG group.
The minimum to join the group are:
◾ Min. level 3 at sg
◾ Level 30 at steam
◾ No private profile
◾ Add Masafor as friend
If you don't fulfill this minimum requirements then you are able to write too. We will look then closer into it and handle that requests from case to case.
1.) = Not important here because you see/use the group because of sg
2.) No one is forced to make giveaways for the group.
2a.) Besides a first Giveaway, exclusive for the group, max. 48h after joining the group, to prevent a abuse. You aren't allowed to enter Group giveaways till this Giveaway ended and got marked as received. [Minimum GA duration time 1 day]
3.) All members are allowed to enter group GA's
3a.) But if someone wins from the group at SG and his gift difference are below -$50, they lose the right to enter more SG group GA's until their gift difference are more positive as -$50.
4.) Group Giveaways can maximum be shared with the Whitelist but not with other groups. [Freebies excluded, see rule 5].
5.) Free Games: 1x One Copy of each Quality Freebie are allowed, as group exclusive GA but not for the whitelist, if the game have min. 80% rating and min. 1500 reviews at steam. Possible games are, as example, 1x Grip, 1x Ancestors Legacy, 1x Syberia and so on.
Lower free games aren't allowed.
6.) Gifters are allowed to write "Play your win" rules in a GA description, examples: "You have to play this win in X month(s)/till a certain completion level", and we expect that each one that enter the GA follow them.
Post all your "Play your Win" Giveaway links into https://steamcommunity.com/groups/MasasGoF/discussions/0/2997669713991280501/, that we can enforce it.
7.) We reserve the right to intervene and talk with each gifter about the GA's if we see some unhealthy behavior for the group - as example RU shop GA's etc.
8.) Blacklisting other members is allowed but if you do, you have to inform one of the staff about it.
The reason for this is that if we get the same blacklisted username different times we obviously need to look closer at that member.
9.) You must be subscribed to https://steamcommunity.com/groups/MasasGoF/discussions/0/1652170487947948564/ to be notified of any changes to the rules. This also avoid members saying "I wasn't aware of the rule changes".
We want to prevent any form of abuse or leeching with our rules.
If you don't fullfill the min. req. then you are still able to write here and we take a look into your account, the stats and so on. If you know someone that is in "Team Masafor" = in my discord or group then please list his/her name (or more than one) and it will raise your chances of a approval very much. Or tell him/her to contact me at discord. That will speed things up.
If you are at my BL and think it is possible that this is a mistake or you changed your behavior of the past, then write me with a link to your Steam account with open comments so I can type you there the reason. I will, most likely, not answer about such stuff at SG, that the thread isn't full with such stuff.
Yes, in a positive way, known people have an advantage and the known Multiaccounters, Autojoiner user and leechers have a disadvantage.
If you use at discord multiaccounts to cheat at giveaways, at twitter, at indiegala or wherever else... don't try to enter the group.
I am very known for acting harsh against everyone that does such stuff and it is completely uninteresting where.
It leads to the fact that you are faster out of the group than you can say Popokadepiddel.
We check then your accounts, different lists and respond as fast as possible. Don't worry if that takes a bit of time.
Please keep in mind that we don't write in the group rules that we expect that our members have the basic manners to say thanks because we expect to have only members with, at least, basic manners in the group :o)

Can I join? And I would like to ask the gift difference of -$50 is calculated by real cv or not?
Here's my steam profile: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198139162457/
Accept my friend request, write me then short on steam, and i invite you to the group :o)
The group stats get calculated from sg with the, full, store prices (nothing we could change).
Don't forget to make your first, group exclusive, GA and that your first GA must be marked as recieved before you enter group GA's.

Not level 30 in steam.
I really like your enthusiasm and energy towards creating a better community. Even fighting spammy thanks-comment-bots. Keep it up!
Not reaching the minimum level on steam is sometimes no problem but to be only level 9 on steam is too far away.
Besides that are your sg account only 1 month old, so not really a chance for us to see much from you and your made GA's are not very much, for one month of course very ok but we want to see a longer timeframe how you will develop.
So let's say, you can send again a application in 2 months.
I wish you, anyway, a nice week(end) :o)
Hi Masafor, I'd like to apply for your group as requirements are reasonable and I'd love to see my games in the hands of members following SG rules.
Welcome in the group :o)
Requesting to join
Hi friend, request to join. I gladly accept all the rules.
Masafor, thanks! I'm about to do my "first Giveaway" for the group.. I have one question, and it is not a big deal but I suggest you may want to clarify this in your "Rules" article (which by the way are some of the best written rules I've ever seen in any group).
In rule 2a you say "exclusive for the group". In rule 4 you say "can maximum be shared with the Whitelist". Please consider adding to rule 2a if the "first Giveaway" can or can not include Whitelist. For now, I'm assuming it can not, but it wouldn't hurt to clarify it.
Thanks, and have a great day. 🎮
You assumed right, the important thing for the first GA are "exclusive for the group" and exclude the WL.
For all other Ga's, that aren't freebies, is Group + WL ok.
Yikes, I almost accidentally entered a giveaway from this group. I had read "You aren't allowed to enter Group giveaways till this (my first) Giveaway ended", and I had hoped you had the ability to make it so I could not see/join this group's giveaways during this period. I will try my best to notice each giveaway groups and not to accidentally join any of these giveaways, and hope I don't goof that up. 👀
I wish i had that ability to prevent that (it would lower the work for us a lot) but nope, it's your own responsibility :-D
It's manageable to see for which group Ga's are made and as soon as you see more as one is it ok for you to enter all of them. The ones with only one group need then a closer look if you see a other or our group name.
I believe in you - motivation fist shake ^^

Hello - request to join. I accept all the rules. Granted, my steam level isn't 30 and my steamgifts account is pretty new because I only heard of the site recently, but I think it would be cool to be part of this group.
For now. You can reapply in 1 or 2 months.
As you say by yourself, you are very new on sg and we don't want to base our decission on under 1 month infos that we could gather about you ;o). What we see till now is good, if you want a first impression.
I am sure you understand that and that it isn't something against you.
Have a great time on sg :o)
Totally understand. Thanks!
Hello, Masafor. Can I join? I think I fulfill all the requirements, and I accept all the rules.
Thanks! Made the first giveaway.
Hey, I was wondering if I could join I meet the requirements, I can create a group giveaway as soon as you add me. I accept the rules.
Happy cakeday :D

Hm, next time give someone more time to answer as ~5h
Happy cake day! :)
Happy Cakeday Masafor :)
I don't seen the message earlier.
Hi! Saw you bumping few times so I guess it's a sign for me to try xd
I've read all the rules and accept them.
But I would like to know what you mean in the rule 7. Is it about too big % of region restricted GA's like I saw a couple users with only region GA's? Actually I made a few region GA's recently but then I realized that steamgifts is not some local website so its kinda unfair to give only for one region but receive from all. So I won't create such heavy region restricted GA's anymore.
And I really like rule 6 bc I don't enter just for +1 for about half a year and trying to play my older wins.
Rule 7 (We reserve the right to intervene and talk with each gifter about the GA's if we see some unhealthy behavior for the group - as example RU shop GA's etc.), is a protection for us. As example if someone try to use a loophole or come up with a new method of abusing/exploiting that we don't had in the past or don't exist right now and of course a method against the shady ru shop games (40p for 12 cents -and such ammounts-).
It have, normaly, nothing to do with region restricted GA's because only a tiny ammount of our group GA's have region restrictions (and then mostly only because the dif. games are limited from the stores -as example not able to activate game XYZ in japan-).
Users that do only or a majority of region restricted GA's, would not be accepted as members.
Rule 6 isn't active for each GA but a part of the members like the possibility for special GA's and i used it in the past too for a Event GA Fallout 4 that i made. Sadly the winner never played it and needed to be kicked (it wasn't the only play your win she won and never played....).
One of the sites that i use for different checks is down right now, so can't finish all checks right now.
All other tests were positive, so i expect that the last one will be positive too.
I will write the final decission as soon as the site is again up.
The site is up again but the needed part are still down for maintenance. They want to bully me :-D
Oh yeah, there is something with steam community servers few days already. I couldn't check comments and activity page over the weekend, only errors and sad steam emoji.
Thanks! GA created.
Hi, i'd like to join the group :)
I have read the rules and understand them.
You don't made a lot of GA's in the last year but i hope you will change that, at least, a bit^^
found my self in a few whitelist GA including this group, thought i might apply
dont have you as a friend yet :)
Accept my friend request and write me then a short message that i know it, after that i can invite you into the group :o)
can i join plz
Without to check deeper, your last GA was made 1,5 years ago.
Feel free to apply again after a few months of activity.
