So you want to create public GAs, but you don't want bots and auto-join scripts to enter? Good. Just post a comment in this thread with a link to an invite-only giveaway. The idea is very simple and is really not different from many (most?) of the other threads in the forum, except that you don't need to invest much time or thought into it. Just post the link in a comment, and you're done :-)
A few additional guidelines:
I'm trying to find how serious the issue with bots really is. So far the results don't really prove things one way or another. Here are some stats from my latest experiment:
Game: Space Trader: Merchant Marine
Number of giveaways: 5
Period: 3 days
Yet some more stats:

To win this game about daggers and the devil, you should
(a) sacrifice a kitten
(b) remove 6,6,6 from the three first letters
This looks easier than it is...
damn, it wasn't supposed to be hard :)
If you remove 6 from Q you obtain K, do the same for the two next letters.
I used "guess what" to solve this... But still no entries!
Is it harder than it seems?!
without the flavor text, this is basically "take QHx5t and subtract 6 from the first three letters"
You actually don't need to sacrifice any kitten!
sorry, too late
don't get it, maybe cause language barrier ;_;
EDIT got it 😆
Thanks to the internet for having EVERY kind of calculator available... would have taken me more than a minute to solve this! (scary times)
2 giveaways for the game Morphine:
Are they here?
only 1 bot
Not even that. 92 entries in both. Makes me think that obfuscation may not be needed in most cases, though I'd still use it as an extra safety precaution if the game is expensive.
i entered only the second one :)
Why not enter the first one too and double your chances?
to be fair, I woulda only clicked the one that didnt require editing...not because I am a bot, but because I am lazy.
This is for "Celebrate Yirg Day" on March 25th!
Remove Yirg from the link, read GA description and maybe participate too.... if you want :-)
thump! I was browsing that wishlist the other day and thinking about what might be a good choice. I am still debating if I should join in on the fun, but I like the idea :)
It was too good to pass up and I was lucky I had such a good gift in my Humble key list :-)
Reserved for I will be lvl 6 soon!
What's wrong with bots? ASF is a bot :)
Autobot make from a bump!
Autobots! Roll Out!
Nothing special here, it's just ZIdoz against honor Ö_ó
ZIdoz could make a pretty good nickname actually :-)
Yep, I also thought 'bout it.
Have a nice day (:
This is a nice idea, bump! :)

This is an amazing idea!
Bump-Bot Activated! Command: execute(bump_thread)

Two GAs for the same game:
Lazy human test

It seems the bots are lazy too today ;-)
