Positive Thoughts

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/PosTho

Group was created 2 years ago by Sooth (Valex) as a place where people can create GAs without having to worry about rule breakers in public GAs, and doing extra work by checking people manually while making forum GAs (pre-SGtools times). It was described as Charitable Losers lite, as it wasn't as demanding in regards to ratio requirements but was still based on having at least 1:1 won:sent ratio.

This is not a ratio group. It's group where you can create GAs without having to write to support due to rule breakers, or seeing that game will go to card idler with 100:1 ratio. We don't force people to create mandatory GAs, and we don't want to invite people who focus on ratio groups. You will stay in group as long as you will be able to fulfill joining requirements.

Requirements to join are as follows:

  • Contribution level 4+ and at least a 1:1 sent/won ratio
    or
    Contribution level 3+ and at least a 2:1 sent/won ratio
    or
    Contribution level 2+ and at least a 3:1 sent/won ratio
  • At least 1:1 RealCV ratio
  • Account in good standing (no multi wins, not activating games or re-gifted games)
  • No more than 25% of CV is from region-restricted GAs
  • Majority of GAs don't come from free devs promotions or "50 CV for 1$" bundles.
  • Respectful attitude
  • Steam account without VAC bans and with privacy settings set to public
  • You must be known for dancing on rainbows
    Don't know how to start? See here! and here!

And here is link to GAs with SGtools filter which will check sent / won ratio and region-restricted GAs. Developers GAs will be checked manually by me and Sooth.

Please write comment in both GAs and then send request to be added to the group. Link to second GA can be found in the first giveaway (mine). It leads to Sooth giveaway. We won't consider applications in forum thread, but you can bump it if you want. Also we're aware of recent SGtools problems with "this game is analyzed" Steam feature. If you activated all wins and it doesn't want to let you pass you should contact with Knsys to solve this problem.

Nope :P

If there is a problem with SGtools gate then you can write about it here. I'm so rarely on Steam nowadays it's better to leave message "to reply later" here. And if I have 1 or 2h in a week to play something, I'd prefer to play, not wait if someone who wanted to talk with me is available.

Yep it's fine. People send request to join without bumping the thread. So it looks dead :thinking:

You just need to enter giveaway through SGtools filter, and comment inside

This one doesn't work.

If it's problem with SGtools then you will need to wait till it starts to work again. I already uncovered link, so can't try to pass it again.

SGT will do that on occasion (and it's a hiccup that has been around for some time, in fact). It'll clear up on its own, eventually, similar to how Steam issues preventing account syncing on SG will clear up eventually. It's likely even caused by the same issue, of something quirking up on Steam's end.

I'm having the same issue as Lon3r, I think it's a bug with the sent/won ratio check. If you have 0 wins it may try to divide by zero, which gives an error. Checks on other SGTools giveaways are working fine for me.
Looking at Lon3r's history, he had 0 wins when he posted the issue, and had >1 wins when he reported it working again.

You could work around it with an OR statement that checks for 0 wins and sets a minimum number of giveaways instead. But best would be that this gets fixed in SGTools itself so I will report it there too.

Edit: knsys found the issue:

The division by 0 is produced by the custom rule, specifically this part: ((real_sent_bundled + real_sent_nonbundled ) / real_won_cv >= 1).

I did see this message few days ago but due to new work I don't have time to sit down and try to re-write it. It basically targets only users that never won anything. I will try to find time for it this week!

No worries, I hope things are going well at your new job. That's always a very stressful time.
If I have some time I may see if I can help with rewriting it. :)

I had a look into it, and unless I'm missing something, you can simply remove the custom RealCV formula as there is a built-in checker for it.

Example: https://www.sgtools.info/giveaways/7f80cc81-a798-11eb-b401-fa163e0a8583

Minimum ratio using Real Value of gifts Sent/Won on Steamgifts: 0.9

Hey,

You don't meet ratio requirements right now. As you're 1st level you'd need to have 1:1 won/sent ratio.

You can follow link in the OP post to check if you qualify.

Hi there. I'm unable to pass SGT due to a 15+ years old ban, but noticed your group has another member with a 8 year old ban. So I was wondering if exceptions are possible on this matter?

Hm, I'm not aware of someone with inactivated / multiple win in the group. I will need to check it over the weekend.

But such user would not pass the SGtools filter, like you already said. So they most probably removed game after they joined the group.

My bad, I should have been more specific. I meant a VAC ban, which is not something they could hide from Steam's API which is why I was wondering if leniency is possible?

Did you try to get past SGtools? I don't see any VAC on your account.

Steam does not display very old VAC bans on profiles, but SGtools can still detect them because it makes use of Steam's API ^^

Man, you really need to try harder figuring that out. Or start trying ;)

I did try hard to figure out what is meant by "both GAs" (giveaways). There is the related Steam "group", and my experience tells me that if I'm accepted in that group, I just need to Sync my account in steamgifts to see that I would also be a member of this group. To me, GA is short for Giveaway unless it means something else here. It's a bit too ambiguous for me to figure out what was being asked of me, perhaps I'm just being dense and will laugh at myself once it's explained. Normally I'm an easy going carefree mate, so I didn't mean for this to be a big deal. 😎

Oppenh4imer, thank you very much for a clear answer, that helps a lot (when I finally saw the GA from the link, I saw that the GA had ended so long ago that I thought it was outdated information, but now knowing that the description was designed as further instructions, it is becoming clear). Thanks again. 🦄

I just want to remind people that they need to comment in both giveaways and then request to join the group.

We have now nearly 170 people that did not read the rules and just tried to apply directly.
