SteamGifts Tools is a tool in a form of a website that lets you do some interesting checks to steamgifts mechanics:

Wrong string in giveaway creation:
"Filter: Activated all won games".
Because user can fair activate game on account and then remove. (and in this case SGTools doen't count it as activated).
Right string must be something like this:
"Filter: Have all won games on account at the time of verification"
And how should SGTools check that?
Removing a win from your account will get you in trouble with Steamgifts' rules too, as far as I know.
String is still correct, it checks if the won games are currently activated, if you remove them from your steam account, they are not activated at check time.
Have a nice Sunday, Knsys! :3

The game "Scary House" was noted by sgtools as not activated, but when I checked and entered the key again, it says "product already owned."
I checked the steam store page for the game, but it seems to have been removed and when I look it up in my games list on my profile page, it does not show up. These might be reasons the false positive is triggered.
I already listed Scary House as newly removed game just one post above yours. Just wait till knsys whitelists these games and you're fine again.
Oh sorry, I guess I skimmed over it. Thank you!
Some more banned games:

I have problems using the site at the moment:
I tried to get the link for a GA but always got an alert message "Something wrong happened, please try again". After that I tried to log out and in again but now I get the message "Not a Steamgifts user You must have a valid Steamgifts account to login in this site."😟
It seems to be having issues when I use it to check my CV and my unactivated wins too. It says I "still has to give his first game." :O
Have you tried to log out on SGT, clear the browser's cache and log in on SGT again?
Yes I even logged out of SG and Steam and also tried it on my mobile phone
I’m also seeing this error when I try to log in.
Same problem here, but it is a first time logging to SGT.
Clearing Browser cache did not help.
I have the exact same problem. Got the "something wrong..." pop-up and then logged out of sgtools and when trying to log back in get the "Not a Steamgifts user" error message and am unable to log in.
Got this problem too since yesterday.
Having exactly the same issue.
Got some problem here:
I join SG for two years,and I had used sgtools before.
Since didn't use tool these days, I tried to connect sgtools today with steam account , but it showed me msg that "not a steamgifts user",but I can still use the checkers by my id , and I can't use the CV tools.
I don't know what's going on and need some help,thank you.
I got same problem...
+1 same issue as you as well
Account has been temporarily blocked for up to 24 hours due to suspicious traffic. Please review any scripts or third-party add-ons you might be using.
Let's see if I can speak to CG to understand why it triggered a 24h ban.
Just to clarify: SGT doesn't use any account to parse data from Steamgifts, it uses anonymous view but the "IP Banned" message is the one above.
Sync does not work:
500 Looks like we're having some server issues.
500 Looks like we're having some server issues.
Nothing will work until the ban is lifted
It happened when I was using my phone (chrome on android)so there should be no scripts or third-party add-ons hmm.
Anyway I might be able to use tool after ban right?
Thanks for help knsys.
I think he is talking about his account that the tool uses is banned. Hence when all of us try to access a SGTool protected GA we get errors. I noticed my errors started yesterday. Same "something happened" and now "no account" as others mention above. I am assuming that when it gets sorted out that we will all work again.
Oh thank you explain this for me cals7.As you see, I need to improve my English ability :P.Without your help, I can't realize the meaning correctly. Now I get it, and hope everything will be alright.
It's actually not his account, but his IP address that is banned. When the SGTools server tries to get information about you from steamgifts.com it is unable to because the IP address of the SGTools server has been temporarily blocked by steamgifts.
It seems the ban has been lifted now, I guess we'll see if it continues to be a problem in the future...
Google tells me that my connection to sgtools.info not secure anymore... why is that and does it matter?
On new chrome versions all non https websites are considered not secure. But there is an easy fix, sgtools supports https, just access the website using https, Like this
Got an invalid entry on d8541cc4-975d-11e8-b23f-fa163ee2f826

It is still reg. in my library.
I don't kicked that game from my steam, i don't changed anything and don't find the problem.
Sync at sgtools don't helped.
Would be nice when you help me and look at it.
Thanks and have a good day :o)
EDIT: The one above me have problems because of the same game
As far as I understood it they removed the game but added it back as Demo. SteamDB history
Thanks for the info. Maybe knsys can fix it now :)
Added to the whitelist, sorry for the delay but I didn't have a computer nearby those days
Thanks and no problem. Reallife is always much more important then the internet :o)
Valve removed the following games from the steam store:
Hi. ESGST will now be fetching your https://www.sgtools.info/lastbundled page every 6 hours, so my list can be as updated as possible without having to fetch the entire bundle list from SG (which ESGST does every 24 hours). I hope that's ok.
Also, is your code prepared to deal with removals? Because when I last fetched your page, Battle Chef Brigade - Soundtrack was added to my list, but that soundtrack is not present in the bundle list here on SG. So either it was added and then removed, or it was mistakenly added for some reason.
Sure, but if you want I can give you access to an Api call to fetch that info, just pm me on steam.
Currently it doesn't handle deletes of games added to the bundle list, since it's a rare event, it handles updates of bundled date though.
Wouldn't it be fairly simple to implement that, though? It's not really that rare, there are a few games at the moment that ESGST is getting from your API that are not bundled. My complete sync handles deletions, but it happens only every 24 hours, and I make short syncs with your API every 6 hours, users will have inaccurate information from your API until the complete sync is done.
I'll have to update it indeed, hopefully I'll get some free time soon to make some changes on SGT.
It used to be an extremely rare case, since bundled list was being handled by only one person for a really long time (shobo). It seems that now this is happening more frequently, so it's time to adjust :)
