At the moment, I am looking to add some cool dudes and dudettes to my Whitelist. Current Whitelist count: 273 members :)

Hello there.
My view on this changed, so I will post an update. All these criteria have just one goal: To find active members of SG who don't cheat, don't leech, don't game the system, do play fair and are contributing to this site with giving away stuff.

  • I am only considering "Real CV", not the "normal" CV SG shows. You can find your own numbers via SGTools.
  • I am looking to add members whose Real CV ratio is over 1:1. The higher your real CV sent is in contrast to your real CV won, the more likely it is for me to add you. That means: Someone with a 2:1 sent:won ratio is more likely to be added than someone with a 1.1:1 ratio.
  • If you have multiple or non-activated wins, you're out. Except when I can clearly see that those are really old and you learned from your mistakes.
  • I am not considering leechers.
  • I am not considering members with a ratio lower than 1:1 in real CV.
  • I am not considering you if you only give in small groups with the intention of CV farming (kinda hard for me to find out, but I am trying).
  • I am not considering you if I can clearly see that you exploited the system with the intention of CV farming (giving away many copies of $1 bundles that result in a high CV value, giving away many copies of price glitches that can only be bought in a certain country but give full CV, and so on). If you do "normal" giveaways and give 1 or 2 copies of those bundles away, it's all good in my book. As long as the other giveaways are the majority by far.
  • Members have to be active. If you didn't do a giveaway in the last 12 months, you're out. The more recent your giveaways are, the better.
  • If you're only doing 1 or 2 giveaways per month, you will most likely not be considered.
  • If you're complaining and complaining and making drama why I added X but not added you, then you are not who I am looking for.
  • If you're VAC banned, you're making it hard for me to add you. I will look at it on a case by case basis.
  • If you're blacklisted, you're blacklisted for a reason. No, I will not remove you. You don't have to ask in this thread. You don't have to create drama.
  • You should have done some public giveaways since your registration date. I know that this may sound ridicolous coming from me at a time where I stopped doing public giveaways. But at the moment, still ~50% of my giveaways were public (private trains were publishéd here in the forum) ones, although they are in the past. I am looking for something similar within you. So if I only see private giveaways due to trains or puzzles and such, please provide a link to the corresponding thread in the forum. Otherwise I have no way to check if those privates weren't "circle jerks".
  • If you're only giving away region restricted games and are winning mostly ROW games, you probably will not be considered.
  • Oh, one more thing: You don't have to add me to your WL in return. If you want to, that's completely up to you. But you don't have to. I am not looking for a 1:1 whitelist exchange of some sorts.

Aaaaaaand that's it! Kinda easy to get on my Whitelist, isn't it? ;)

Offline? I am online every day, or do you mean about my giveaways? I give away what I have left from bundles and there hasn't been many good bundles lately so I haven't bought them, good bundles means giveaways else no giveaways, if that is a problem for you than that's to bad for me ^^

Yeah, my wording was off. I meant that there are frequent pauses where you don't do giveaways. Two months here, three months there etc.

I most likely won't be considered, since only a small fraction of my giveaways doesn't have any region locks, but I'm trying to fix this :)

So if I only see private giveaways due to trains or puzzles and such, please provide a link to the corresponding thread in the forum.

Organized two public trains myself and participated in one pretty recently so you might see stretches of invite-only GAs on my list. Anyway, I thought I could save you the trouble by providing the links :)

There are couple more invite-only GAs that are part of a few other SG threads, like the Positive thread and such, but those are pretty rare (less than 10 overall).

It's your WL, and so who you accept is entirely up to you! No biggie.
(If it was the "maybe NR's on SGT", all of the games I have won are activated, and this can be verified by either a support member checking or you friending me on steam and then checking manually. However, I am not asking for you to do this.)

If you still remember why you chose to reject me, would you please consider informing me? I am not upset, am not asking you to reconsider giving me a spot on your list, and would not be offended no matter the reason(s).

Your group giveaways are the reason. Most of them have around 10 entries, maybe even lower than that. So that looks like CV farming to me. It is a rather easy and common way to game the system by creating groups with only a handful of members, so that giveaways get at least 5 entries to get the CV. Everyone of those members only does group giveaways, all get more CV but will distribute all the games among themselves while entering public giveaways.
I am not saying that it is a fact that you do that. But it looks very suspicious and so I will stay away from getting involved.

Applying, since I think I fit (and agree with) your general sentiment. But the devil's in the detail, isn't it!
I looked at the sgtools sent link and since the giveaway list is in date order I was reminded that I did do a bit of that CV farming in the early days. But with experience, came realisation, and now I try to keep my won/sent stats similar, which inevitably means the majority are for groups.

I've joined one community train a while ago, so my private GAs starting from The Last Tinker™: City of Colors to Ice Lakes were part of that.

"Failed" is the wrong word. You did not fail. You do your giveaways the way you want and that is totally fine and always the right way. It's just that your way of doing things and my way of looking at things don't intertwine. Which also is fine by itself.
The point that most of your giveaways are region locked in addition to most of your wins being region free broke the camels back.

Thx for the answer. I thought that will be the "failing" point :D And you know the point is that they could be probably even without it probably, but most of my keys are coming from HB, so just in case I am putting the EU region :D Anyway, thx for the reply, have a lovely rest of the week. :)

It turns out I added you to my whitelist 8 months ago, so I'll throw my hat in the ring here.

I think I may be near or exceed 50% public giveaways. My recent train contributions are at least 14 carts from here to here plus 5 from here to here

If I can make one suggestion to clarify your list of asks, it would be this minor update:

You should have done around 50% public giveaways since your registration date.

As for private giveaways, I'm curious - How common are private giveaways circle jerks in your experience? IMO group giveaways would be much more efficient for anyone wishing to circle jerk/farm. Do you include the i-need-5-entries post in this category?

I am here since six years and small circle jerk groups to game the system are very, very common. Most of those happen in groups nowadays, not private giveaways. Although that was different a few years ago

If the 50% public GAs are a requirement I guess I'm toast but I would like to try anyway.
I try to make public GAs from time to time but I always end up re-rolling for days because someone already owned the game, didn't own the base game etc. And then there's the usual leech winner who gave away 3 games 5 years ago to get to level 1 and won 2,600 games since and they never fail to win my public GAs.

Anyway, enough ranting. Just leaving my application here. Thanks for looking me over.

It nowhere says that you have to do 50% public giveaways, because then I would break my own rules ;)
I am giving you a shot, BUT: You only have sent approx. 100$ more in real CV than you have won. If the difference gets smaller or even, I will remove you from my WL pretty quick :)

My RCV differential varies depending how lucky I get (I tend to win in clusters for some reason) but it usually grows more than it shrinks so you shouldn't have to worry too much about it.
Thank you for the chance (•‿•)
