It's not my cake day or anything. Just thinking that I've been a part of this community for a few years.

In that time, I've reached the max level (a few months ago), which is a fairly major accomplishment. I guess once I started creating giveaways, I just couldn't quit. Having won a bunch of games was fun, but giving turned out to be satisfying as well. Everyone here for the most part has made this a fun experience.

Of course it's not all about giveaways. I've only made a handful of forum discussions, but at the time of this writing, I have 15,949 comments to my name across the site. I will probably get up to 16k in no time, thanks to this thread.

I'm going to give away Whispers of a Machine and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, but there are a few steps you need to take to reach your goal (before 2021-12-23). Don't worry - it's not too hard. :) If you can't seem to find your way, I'll give some nudges over the next few weeks.

What even is this thread?

Hi! Just wanted to share a couple of things.

I very rarely enter the discussions on this site, and had never participated in a SG puzzle, but this thread's subject got my attention and I'm glad it did!

I love puzzles and am the kind of person that once I get started on one I kind of get obsessed and can't think about anything else or have any rest until I crack it =). This was a nice one and made me work for it (mainly because I wasn't familiar with the tradition of SG puzzles, and how they are usually solved), so thanks for the challenge!

On the other hand, it has made me reflect on my own motivations for visiting this site regularly, and it got me thinking that there's a gret nugget of truth on what you say about giving being just as satisfying as receiving, if not more. You have inspired me and I'm planning my first puzzle giveaway for something special (I haven't decided the game yet but I know it will be something meaningful to me and hopefully really special for others as well).

Congrats on reaching level 10, and thanks for the inspiration =)

That makes me happy. :) Glad I caught you!

Whatever you decide to give, good luck with your own puzzle!

Bump from another person stuck after getting the date. Others say there's something that occurred to them, so here's hoping i'll get inspired on what to do next.

Thx for the brainstrain! o/

I'm not sure I understand your question for me. I wanted to answer a couple different ways, and I can't think of any other interpretation for the question. I'll let you know if I can think of anything before you get back to me.

Which specific question was that?

The question you ask after solving the first puzzle and following the link. Not sure if the question itself is a hint/part of the next link usage.

Yeah, figured just a date. But tried +/-1 day on the site too hard puzzle, and it says wrong. Don't know what to do next.
Idk about formatting date anything. We russians used only DD-MM-YYYY format. I know MM-DD-YYYY popular too.
Found this https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E41183_01/DR/Date_Format_Types.html - trying to DDos puzzle with it xD
So, we have 2 days, i'll try both - and after all that dates format - i'll type.
