Hi, I'd like to join with option 2 since I haven't won anything yet.
Anyway I planned to play ALL games I'll win whether in the group or not :)
Hi Histoire! You're welcome to join. Please do set your Steam playtimes to public first. Joining by option two is possible, but you may also pick an unplayed game from your Steam library with achievements if you wish. Please let me know. :)
It's done !
So if I can play an unplayed game it will be Stories : Path of Destinies. Thanks :)
Great, as for that game, you've already started playing it on the 12th of May, so please pick another..
Aw too bad, I just touched it a bit, well I'll consider to play it later,
Then Silence that I've got from the last HumbleBundle would be good ? :)
I just finished the game, it was a great story.
I liked graphisms, soundtracks, the kids on drugs ...
Well, I chose the truth over the happiness, might play it again later to discover all the endings :)
Hi Histoire! Silence will be fine. :) And as for your second comment, seeing you've already played it now, your membership request was approved! Welcome to the group.
Thanks, I really appreciate, the idea of the group is awesome :)
I'll make sure to give away some games I do love
If I qualify, I'd like to apply via Option 1 with the the any unplayed game in my profile variant [unless by Luckamancy me posting here causes me to suddenly win a giveaway], with the game I'm selecting being Yooka-Laylee.
If I'm seeing everything correctly that would be about 10 hours of play time and at least 4 achievements [achievements gotten by 60% of people] (although personally I'm sure I can get at least 12 in that time)?
I am now at more than 10 hours with 20 achievements. Let me know if a) for applying it takes more than the effort mentioned on the website or b) if I need to work on my SG stats before I'd be accepted.
I am now officially declaring my temptation for requesting to join before my application has been acknowledged as I've 100% the game. I'll probably wait until Friday before doing so unless if it is otherwise acknowledged or declined due to needing to improve my SG stats.
EDIT: I have requested to join
Hi goplayer7! You're welcome to join by playing Yooka-Laylee. Seeing you did so (and congratulations on the 100% also ^^) I've approved your membership. Welcome to the group! :)
Thank you, I look forward to being part of the group.
Hey, I'd like to join via (Option 2) [currently not much time on my hands & am picky].
Hi Nyuels! You're welcome to join by giving away a game you'd like to see getting played. Membership request approved. :)
I would like to join, played Bing Bong XL
Hi HeadfullEyeballs! You're welcome to join, however for option one please pick a game you didn't play yet.
Hi HeadfullEyeballs, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests on Steam and I came across yours. I would like to know if you would still be interested to join the group and if yes, with which option?
If I won't get a reply in a week I will simply decline the request, but you would still be welcome to join at a later time.
Hey, can I be a part of this group? I will do a giveaway!
Hi kurdtcobain1994! You're welcome to join by giving away something you'd like to see getting played. Membership request approved. :)
Hi sounds like a cool group :D Option 1: I just 100% 'starting the game' which I won here a couple days ago. Ill do Option 2 too though
Hi marco4838908350! You're welcome to join. As for option 1, that game is too short (more a meme game). But joining via option 2 is fine. Please do set your "Total playtimes" on Steam to public first (the checkbox below game details).
Yeah fair enough! It is about 15 minutes long. I've only won a couple games on here so don't have many to show. Done the total playtimes :)
You could also pick one from your Steam library instead if you want.. Let me know then. For now I'll assume you'll give away something that you'd like to see getting played, so membership request approved. :)
Hi Korrie! You're welcome to join by option one. What game will it be?
Hi Korrie, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests on Steam and I came across yours. I would like to know if you would still be interested to join the group and if yes, with which option?
If I won't get a reply in a week I will simply decline the request, but you would still be welcome to join at a later time.
I'm interested in this idea. I'd like to join the group if possible. I am going to play The Walking Dead as I have it even downloaded. I will return when I finish it! Thank you <3
Hi bloodyraintatii! You're welcome to join, playing The Walking Dead will do fine. :) Please comment again when you've finished playing it.
Hi, is Grim Fandango long enough to count as Option 1? I started it today and just finished it (though im fine with making giveaway anyway).
Hi kosopaty! You're welcome to join, however as you've already started playing Grim Fandango before your comment, please pick another game.. Joining by giving away a game you like to see getting played will be fine too, just let me know what you prefer. :)
Im bit too into game i brought rn, so i'll just make giveaway ^^
Alright, membership request approved. :) I'm curious what it'll be!
Just commenting again to say that I finished strider, as promised.
Answered you via the application comment you've made earlier. :)
All right, I'm going to give "Batman: The Enemy Within - The Telltale Series" a go, hopefully it'll run well enough on my PC.
Hi Arvennios! You're welcome to join by playing Batman. Please comment again when you've finished it. :)
Hi, I played it to completion and would like to join the group :)
Agreed and even to 100%. :) Congratulations! Please request to join the group here and I'll approve it as soon as I see it.
Edit: approved! Welcome to the group.
Hi! I'd like to join using option 1 if possible. Can I join playing SOMA?
Hi Habaruku! You're welcome to join, playing SOMA will do fine! Please comment again when you've finished it.
Hey there, I'd like to join via Option 2 :)
Requested to join. :)
Hi getRich! You're welcome to join, giving away something you'd like to see getting played will do fine. Membership request approved!
Hey I created a giveaway for Serial Cleaner for this group only :) Hope that's fine :)
It sure is, I hope it'll find a good home. Welcome to the group :)
may i join? some1 link me this group during that discussion https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/G1Z6a/any-tips-on-winning-giveaways#3lmFKo6
Hi. Read the first post.
so i have not won anything yet. so should i wait until i win something that i can play/beat than take a screenshot of me beating the game?
I think you can choose an unplayed game from your steam library, however don't take my word for it. Wait for an admin to help you then :)
greengreen1 is right. Since you haven't won anything yet, you can choose a game which is unplayed and has achievements also not too short :) from your library, then let us know (maybe wait for approval of selected game), then let us know again when you finished it.
Also you can join by Option 2 which is written on original post. Don't forget the read original post anyway :)
Group needs some cleanup already I guess :)
sorry for my bad conduct, I totally forgot to play rampage knights, so sorry for this i had bad past weeks and not totally on my head. Anyway could you forgot and reintroduce me in the group? i've started and played rampage knights (I intend to continue it).
Here a screen of a fun achievement :D
Hi VivisectorITA! You're welcome to rejoin, however only after playing all your rejected winnings to the minimal playing requirements. At this moment three games still don't pass the requirements, being Gloria Victis, Rampage Knights and Pain Train PainPocalypse. Please comment again when you've played those (some more) and I'll be happy to take another look. :)
So I am here to explain :)
I'va played and obtained many achievements in game, but on steam no signs of this (game issues for sure, becaues its an early access)
I can proof from this screenshots: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
I can play as many times you want, but for now achievements on steam not works.
PAIN TRAIN PAINPOCALYSPE
played 0.6hours as the link said and obtained all the achievements just quitting the game. Anyway this is a true garbage game.
greens are levels completed - my review
still playing as good I can, everythings works fine. screenshot
Thanks :) Rampage Knights and Pain Train have been approved now. As for Gloria Victis, could you please first report your achievement problem here? The dev is very active and I haven't seen others that have problems with the achievements there. If you reply with the bug report you've made, I can approve that one too and invite you back. :)
yaiiii thanks ! Wait for invite :D
Hi, I have a spare copy of "Crazy Machine 3", and I want to make a giveaway for people who will like to playing it. May I join your group please ?
Hi Azolti! You're welcome to join, giving away Crazy Machine 3 will do fine. :) I hope it'll find a good home. Please request to join the group here and I'll approve it as soon as I'll see your request.
Thanks, I have made a request. ^^
Thanks, I created the giveaway, I set it for 4 day. ^^
Option 1: playing No Time to Explain Remastered
Hi efdu! You're welcome to join, playing No Time to Explain Remastered will do fine. Please comment again when you've finished it.
Before applying I would like to ask something, concerning about the option 1. I still didn't win a giveaway and so I can't apply option 1, and option 2 is not available for me atm.
I saw people just picking up an unplayed game from their library, complete it to receive acceptance inside the group.
Can I do the same? I would like to do it with Transistor (recently bought), how much should I play to consider it "done"?
Also, I have one month available right?
Thanks in advance for the answers :3
Hi ShiedaValentine! You're welcome to join. As for your question, indeed you may pick a game from your Steam library then. Transistor will do fine. As for what is considered played, the game should take you about 6 hours and you should unlock the most commonly gained achievements by others. But just drop a comment if you think you're finished and we'll take a look. :)
hi i would like to join back in the group, i was kicked out of group for not playing a game which i have successfully played now
Hi satyam001! As I've told you here you're welcome to join back. Please request to join the group again or if that isn't possible please add me as friend so I can send you a direct invitation.
Ok, Option 1 please. I will give a chance to Pankapu. Thanks in advance :D
Hi httpERROR404! You're welcome to join, playing Pankapu will do fine. Please comment again when you've finished playing it. :)
Hi httpERROR404, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests on Steam and I came across yours. I would like to know if you would still be interested to join the group?
If I won't get a reply in a week I will simply decline the request, but you would still be welcome to join once you have beaten the game :)
I'll probably leave the group after the giveaway is over
Hi AloofPanda! :) You're welcome to join via option two, membership request approved. As for leaving the group afterwards, feel free to request to join again later anytime you wish. (although I hope you'll stay around. ^^)
Why will you leave if may I ask? :)
I probably won't have another game that'd I would want people to play for a while. That's all really :)
I got kicked some time ago for games not played, but it was actually the tool not counting my playtime, but now i've played all rejected winnings and I came here to ask if I could join again plz :D
P.S.: You (Reforced) said on this post about not counting as a kick since I actually warned about the tool problem https://steamcommunity.com/groups/playing-appreciated/discussions/6/1692669912387419925/
Thanks for the future response!
Hi Imortalmaster! I've checked your winnings, you are welcome to join back. Please request to join the group again or if that isn't possible please add me as friend so I can send you a direct invitation.
Thank you! Friend request sent
Hey, I would like to apply to join the group by Option 1.
I would play Serial Cleaner unless it counts as too short.
Hi Ben83ce! You're welcome to join, playing Serial Cleaner will do fine. Please comment again when you've finished the game.
I finished Serial Cleaner! Although I didn't get 100% of the achievements.
Edit: I found a solution to the problem I had with one of the achievements so I ended up with 100% afterall.
You've played it more than enough :) Getting all achievements isn't needed, just getting the common ones already shows you've played it. Besides that, I see one night contract would have made it 100%. ^^ Membership request approved, welcome to the group!
It appears I just finished the last achievement as you were writing. I knew it wasn't necessary, but when a game I enjoy this much has relatively easy achievements I realy want to go for it.
Thank you for the group invite!
would join Option 2 :)
Hi DontWaste! Alright, I'm curious what it'll be. Membership request approved. :)
sent request :)
I've already approved your request - if you sync your account it should show up. :)
I see you didn't create a giveaway you'd like to see getting played yet, are there any problems?
i wanna buy bundle but i miss them .... soon will buy one :)
Well you are supposed to join via option two if you have a game that you would like to see getting played. Since you already had three days, soon has expired. If you cannot create one now, please leave the group until you do. You may also still choose to join via option one, please let me know what game you will play in that case and leave the group until you've played it.
