So.

I have managed to amass a significant number of duplicate keys over the years, mostly from Humble Bundle (easily over 100 there alone). I've been delaying the moment of giving them away for a long time. Now, that I look at those, I definitely don't feel like creating all those giveaways in one go.

This made me think of a pact. I'll create a giveaway every Saturday, that will run until the next Friday and you'll just keep posting shit here. The games will be different, some were at some point, free, like the first one, others are possibly more desired (mostly the HB monthly stuff).

But, there's a twist to it. The giveaways will be mostly targeted at the newer members. I have been in and out Steamgifts for the past 5 years, but judging by the giveaway and comment statistics, the site's era is slowly coming to an end. So, all the giveaways will be using sgtools to enforce, that the users winning it, have won less than 10 giveaways in total. Let's reel in those newbies.

And that's it.

P.S. If you win another giveaway in the week that the giveaway is running, it's fine by me. If you're above 10 won giveaways before it starts and somehow join the giveaway, I'll have the winner (that is you) rerolled.

Thank you very much for considering some of us unlucky ones / newbies. <3 I'm not going to enter for these two (maybe for Bit Blaster XL ;p), but am looking forward to the next GAs. Here is a buuuump, so that hopefully more people will enter. :)

Hello TheFinalSinner, and welcome to SG.

It's random but you could enter in thousands of giveaways and not win. Joining a group like Unlucky 7 as mentioned above is a great group for new members of the SG community and you have better odds compared to joining public giveaways.

A bump is referring to bumping the thread by posting a comment.

Also when you get a moment you should read the Guidelines and FAQ if you haven't already.

bump is bringing a post up to the top of the listing by commenting. Because the posts are sorted by time of the newest comment.
It's common for the first win to be after 1000 entrance. But if you join giveaways with less number of participants, you have a higher chance of winning.
You gain level by creating non-free giveaways. Later part of the FAQ talks about level.

Thanks!
I'm thinking of deleting mu account recently, because this website is taking a lot of time and resources, but not giving anything in return. It is crazy that some people are winning like 1-2 game every day, and the others are getting nothing for months.
It really good to know that at least someone cares about this issue.

Well, it's not really an issue imo. If you really want to win more then it's mostly about spending a lot of time in the discussion sections and joining all those GA groups. Plus it also depends what games you are trying to win, the FOTMs will always have thousands of entries therefore the chance of winning is minuscule.
