here are my listed game giveaways
https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/Oz3nz/snowball

I was going to try and do a 1000 cart train - yes 1000 but have since thought how silly that is not only because it takes a long time to make 1000 carts and get keys ready but also because i love making giveaways

so that is the reason i have decided to add my giveaways here to say thanks to every single person who makes giveaways and spreads the love of games and giving others the chance to enjoy more of them - i DO NOT however like people taking (entering and trying to win or winning) and not giving anything back - in the form of giveaways themselves - even free giveaways are better than nothing

so i hope you guys and girls enjoy my giveaways (not much but still better than nothing) and if you do - like i said spread the love of games and dlc and fun

note 1 - i do not need or want you to make giveaways yourself because you think you can only enter any of my giveaways because everyone who is at the correct level or high can freely enter - i want you only to make giveaways like we all do because like and love to give away some Steam Love

note 2 - i will not be listing any whitelist or group giveaways here as i do not want people to feel bad or angry at me for not being able to enter giveaways

question - what do you people think of people/bots who take giveaways and never make any? (just asking sorry if this is wrong i'll remove if needed)

I am sleepy so only a little thanks for the GA's :o)
I need a hot chocolate or a good tea to be fully awake.

And as Answer:
You know me and my big BL is very well known too.
I don't like the extreme leechers with 10 gifted, 200 wins, last GA 2 years+ ago OR the people that make 20 Accounts to get free games where you "only" get 1 game per account (each one that use multiaccounts don't limit themself only to do that at one site, it's a character mark/sign, a behavior -and i would say a very bad one-) OR the ones with many red marks at sgtools OR the people that don't have the basic manners to say thanks after a win.
All such ones move directly to my BL IF level 3 or higher, because i don't have space for the lower levels (1k is max. at the BL). And that force me to make my GA's for lvl 3+. Not how i want it but thats the possible options that i have.

With all due respect, because this is the only line I have an issue with. ;)
Checking briefly your history shows that 90% of your giveaways in the past year were group giveaways (with sometimes a small inclusion of a WL). So maintaining a Black List is completely pointless as it is going to only exclude people from the few public ones.
So the point is: Although I do recognize you, barely anyone knows your BL. :)
And even if you made more public giveaways people in your BL won't know. The giveaways just won't show! Want to rub it in? Post a lot of tempting invite-only's and then people will know they got on your bad side.
Just sayin'. :)

Yes, i made lesser and lesser public GA's because more and more negative experiences with them or more exactly with too many winners and their behavior.
And i raised my group activities because of the same reasons.
It don't need so much work after the GA and lower the stress stuff. Both something that i need to be in a good mood and because of my illness (or health) stuff (my illness gets much worse from stress).

I don't think that my BL is pointless and it exclude the people on it from ALL GA's that i make. I BL in groups too if someone don't know the word "thanks" after a win to give a easy example or when i know that user use a autojoiner because he said it to me or someone else (yes it gave this case and he got first banned after 4 times got caught with it .... = after around 1 year, can't say more because of the, in such cases, complete stupid calling out rule).
You think only a few know my BL, i know that a good bunch are pissed off because of the fact they are there and because they dislike big BL. I let them dislike how i handle MY BL and i let them handle their BL how they want ;o).
Or in other words, a few people think i am satan because of my BL. They see me as the problem and not the "bad apples". Because i don't want to spend money and time to feed people that never gifted a free game or a cheap game to the community (not me) but take since many years and because i have the balls to say or write that too -my comment here brought me till now +2 BL (but that isn't from much interest for me... in the long run they loose more as i)-, maybe i am sometimes to direct or to stark but thats me ;o).

I know that users at my BL don't see my GA's but what should be wrong at that ?
If users in my BL know about GA's from me or not is totally uninteresting for me, i don't do them to rub someone in that he is at my BL.
My goal with the BL is only that they can't win my GA's, everything else is unimportant for me.

I made public GA's, group GA's, sgtools GA's, WL GA's, jigidi GA's, itstoohard GA's, Invite only GA's in different Threads and it give everytime someone that aren't happy with the way the GA's were made.
And to be very clear, after realizing that, i think at myself and make the ones that FEEL for me as best as possible and give me the best mood with the result.
Because in the end it is my money and my lifetime and partly health that i spend to make the GA's.

I had after my last Cakeday GA's +12 (or 16?) BL, and much lesser +WL (i think 6), i think because people realized they can't enter all my GA's, they were level restricted, or are anyway at my BL.
Was a unpleasant surprise to get a negative impact after made GA's and give out games to celebrate something.
Oh and i got there the first not recieved mark too. Because one winner got a dupe key, i wasn't able to replace it and he waited then exactly 7 days to mark it as not recieved. He don't reacted at different contact tries, that he please let the support delete the GA, for the complete time. Earned him in the end a BL. I don't know what he wanted to win from that behavior, and it was a special, bad, cake day surprise.
Next cake day, if i am still around, i will make maybe nothing or exclude the public ones. I am not happy with that but the options are limited and my motivation after such experiences very low.

two questions - well more that one is a question and the other is a statement based on what's been said

the question is now i know some of what you black list for - what would be a example of white listing someone? i have no reason really like sometimes i will white list just because i like the profile picture (sad i know) or a more real reason like if i see them be nice to me or others

also i am glad that people on black lists don't see giveaways that are made because on one hand they don't know what they are missing - therefore the punishment of the blacklist is lessened - i mean would't you be more upset seeing a giveaway for a game you really want rather than have no knowledge of it at all.

but at least most of the time you won't and don't get comment like dude why was i put on your black list - because just like my white list it's for many a reason and most of them are forgotten over time why

I whitelist for different things and situations. I think like everyone else :o)
Friendly people, users that help other ones from time to time, users with good statistics that are clearly not cv exploited (so not the ones with 10x each 1$ very strong cv bundle bought), because i know them from other places (sites, groups, discords and so on) and have there nice talks or something else with them.
It give a lot of reasons to WL.

Yeah. It's all unimportant. As proven by the mass of text you took the effort to write. People knowing they are on your BL? Completely unimportant. You don't care. I see that now.
You know what? Consider me convinced. If not by the rhetoric, then at least by the volume of effort put into. It's really astounding to see the length you go to defend that one line. You are the scourge of the leeches of SG, worthy of their ire. Must feel good.
And to show you how committed I am to ending this pointless discussion I'll let you have the last word. Be sure that I'll read any response, and let it stay as is. Write whatever absurdity you desire. Knock yourself out.

1) You pick one sentence out of context and put your answer around that. Not how i talk about something because the result can never be

I know that users at my BL don't see my GA's but what should be wrong at that ?
If users in my BL know about GA's from me or not is totally uninteresting for me, i don't do them to rub someone in that he is at my BL.<<

The context of the sentence was directed to that part of my reply. Together the sentences are different as the one you picked to post alone.

2) I don't defended something, i explained the line you picked, you wrote different sentences and i wrote to more as one line.

3) You were at my WL, without that i was at yours -thats not my goal when i WL someone-, but someone that write me that i should knock myself out and write (more -thats the way your sentence sounds for me-) absurdity don't need to stay at my WL for the future.
I feel "attacked", i don't have a better word right now, i am not a native english speaker + sleepy, and thats not what i expected as reaction from you to say it in general. Maybe you understand how i mean it. Maybe i missunderstand you.

true this is a good point and unless this person is on a bunch of black lists the few giveaways one or two people can't enter won't even really make the slightest difference will it - and chances are the person on your black list will never even know they have been added to it - i might be on a bunch and never know (i probably don't even know that person exists on here in first place)

Oh, yes, touch more raw nerves. Stick the knife and turn it. That'll be really painful for the ego of some people here who can't stand the size of their e-penises being despised.
