I know this may be an old and answered topic but there is nowhere I can go except here to voice my issue. I love this platform and have been a member for almost a decade although I've taken a break for a few years. I have surely won my fair share of games here and they have cheered me up when I felt down... I want this application to be more available to people who do not have a lot of time to join giveaways. In my experience it was very difficult to sometimes contact gift receivers or manage the gift and trade as well as timing of it. I hope that it is not a lot at all to ask you to build in a method to automatically trade and hold items to winners instead of having to do it manually.

If you're asking for an option to automatically send keys when the GA ends, I am all for it.

Exactly, a checkbox option. Some of us want to check winner's legitimacy, some don't. I often do, but not always.

Sure. As long as old rule infractions, like non activations and multiple wins lead to automatic re-rolls.

why people talking about multiple wins? thats not possible! after winning you cant enter the same game ga again!
real question: why is that still a thing after 5 years of impossibility?!?

Old multiple wins from before. Some with multiple wins made an effort to get them rectified (convincing one of the giveaways' creators to delete the giveaway). Some never tried anything to set their accounts straight.

Oh. I see a problem, thought suggestion is to send gifts faster, but it is about automatically reedem them to account? Thought winning on level 0 is way too rare to actually become time consuming.

everyone in real life i tell about SG is not interested in winning games (they buy what they wanna play)
once i had someone who forgot his humble membership for over a year and had many good keys - he registered and created GAs - i met him a week later and told him: you have to send the keys too. he was surprised and already blacklisted by ppl. he clicked send and never came back to sg.

This is the same energy when on a level 2 giveaway a level 3 (now freshly level 4) user told me:

Running giveaways with higher levels encourages users to do giveaways to increase their level. Please prioritize who contributes to the growth of the site and community."

They have 41-209 for their stat over 9 years, with 3 giveaways in the past almost 4 years, all locked to the SA region.
Which would be okay I guess, people do whatever.
But the audacity, asking for higher (I guess level 3, their level) requrements on my giveaways, while preaching about the contributors was a flashbang-level of audacity.

What you're describing is a candy vending machine. That's not what this site is.

That's exactly what this site is....

Some people work for the vending machine company, but even they tend to pluck a piece of candy from the supply from time to time.

Except the people putting candy in the machine are not a company. They're individuals who have spent money for things that they are now giving away to strangers. So yeah no, not at all a vending machine.

You get points to spend on the vending machines. You get more points if you contribute. The points are kind of like a currency.

Except you don't get more points if you contribute.
You get access to a few more vending machines (and if you check out the number of giveaways over level 3 these days, it's not exactly a bounty). And still those vending machines are filled by people.
So really no it's not.

Most wins come from group giveaways, that's where things really shine here, especially the puzzle giveaways.

I don't know about most because I'm pretty sure 90% of gibs are public but you're right, the odds are better in group giveaways, provided you are participating in the group. Still doesn't make a vending machine though.

And still those vending machines are filled, mostly, by people autojoiners, multiaccounters and other cheaters.

Ps.: The most autojoiner reports from our group members are still, after more then a year, unhandled.

Bots and autojoiners don't fill the machines much in my experience. They get the candy but they don't put much back.

Hi guys! I have seen his profile has been suspended. But why, exactly? I know that it has a very bad rate, considering what has done in 9 years on SG, but it isn't the only profile with this score here. Has it been suspended because he insulted someone or what? And why right now after 7 years of inactivity? Just curious :P

Someone pointed 5 inactivated wins, maybe that was reason. With inactive level 0 it takes some time to check as you mostly cross them if they win your giveaway and just a peak of gifters check winners if they are claiming wins on that account.

I agree. I confess I have never checked wether the winner had already won the same game before. I think, from now on, I will do it. Thanks for pointing it out :)

He's also autocommenting on every GA now with the message I copied here, which, in itself, apparently isn't enough proof of autojoiners for mods (according to some distorted views, this must be making the site look like it's lively or something, idk man). But maybe they caught that too.
