Introduction


Playing Appreciated is a group for members that like to play games they win and for giveaway creators that like to see their games getting played. This sounds simple, yet requires committent and dedication from members by filtering out games they like to play from all group giveaways and when won playing those within one month. In return members will get higher chances of winning games they want and creators will know their giveaways have a high chance of getting played. The group has more than 800 members and over 9000 historical giveaways.

Group rules


  • You need to set and keep your Steam privacy settings for My profile and Game details public (example);
  • You will play all giveaways you win via this group within one month;
  • When creating a giveaway it is recommended to include a small group rule reminder in your giveaway, something like: "This is a Playing Appreciated giveaway, by joining you commit to playing this game within a month when won.".

How to join


  1. Make sure you did not violate any SteamGifts rules in the last month;
  2. Comment one of the two options to enter the group in this discussion:
    • Option 1: Showing your commitment by playing a previous won game on SteamGifts that you did not yet play. The game shouldn't be very short and must have achievements. Comment with the name of the game before you start playing it and comment again when you finished playing it. Please upload some screenshots to Steam as well.
    • Option 2: Supporting the cause by creating a group giveaway of a game that you would like to see getting played by other group members within a month as soon as your membership request was approved. The game should not have been given away free before (marked by ** when creating a giveaway on SteamGifts).
  3. Press "Request To Join" on our group page;
  4. Wait for us to approve your request, we'll always reply on the comment you have made in this topic.

Hi Mondongo98, to join with option 2 a giveaway has to be made right after you join the group, so you can either wait till you have something to give away or pick any unplayed game with achievements from your Steam library (since you don't have any SG wins) and play that instead for option 1.

Hi BlepCat, I took a look and I don't think this was played anywhere near enough. You have a total of 86 kills in 14,1 hours which adds up to 1 kill in about 10 minutes which just doesn't sound right to me. I have played that game for literally 5 minutes and I have 3. Here is how much progress other people from the group have made as well.
Your join request was denied because you didn't comment when you orginally requested to join (January 4th @ 7:33pm - request to join Feb 4, 2019, 19:52 - comment on this thread). Once you have played the game enough you will get directly invited by one of the admins.
