948720 "Keyhole Spy: Fantasy Passion" should also be added to the learning list.
Added to the learning list (porn edition)
http://www.sgtools.info/giveaways/a62e9783-f006-11e8-878c-fa163ee2f826 One invalid in Space Hulk: Ascension
Infraction applied, thanks for the report!
I would appreciate you to put this on the whitelist.
Maybe the game has been removed from Steam, it applies to the 'Not activated' rule.
Added the new mini ban wave to the whitelist, including sudoku
thanks for your effort!
Another learning game
Added to the learning list, thanks!
The CV calculation for free games is completely off. It appears that it counts all past giveaways for those games as $0 once they have been given out, instead of taking the date of the giveaways into account to only count newly given games at $0.
Do you have an example profile where this behavior happens? I'm checking the code and it should be working fine.
I noticed this with Orwell and Company of Heroes but seems it was just bad timing to look exactly when the P value was zeroed on SG, kind of unlucky to hit exactly that date twice.
Did not consider to check for this first, Orwell is back to the correct value.
Another dev has chosen to revoke the keys for his game https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/Dmrlm/. Maybe you can add Simple Story - Alex (appid 814200) temporarily to the whitelist.
Added to whitelist, those devs....
864130 "My Magical Demon Lover" should also be added to the learning list.

Hentai University 2: Biology course Needs to be added. Thank you.
Ah, if only we could go back cancel an entry, Game was not even remotely passable. Oh well. It is what it is.
It looks awful indeed, added to the learning list
And it is. I like puzzle games like Bejeweled and that looked like it.
And thanks, SGTools works now.
I'm getting an error on some SGTools links and I'm not sure why. The error appears on some giveaways, but not others - can't tell if something is wrong with the links or if it's SGTools acting up.
For example, see the giveaways in Positive Thread (apologies for not linking directly to the specific giveaways, but it could be technically seen as "leaking") - Retool and Bear With Me show up a 500 error, but most other SGTools-protected giveaways are fine.
Just wondering if this is a known issue or whatever. Never seen this error before so I'm not sure if it's common.
There was some api changes, thanks for letting me know!
Great! Thank you!
When I want to unlock a giveaway and I'm not logged in, I'm not redirected back to the giveaway page after logging in. Is it possible to change that?
Yeah, I'll look into it. I always wanted to refactor the whole login system, it seems it's time to do that!
I'll need some time though, Christmas is near and my time will be very limited due to family stuff.
Yeah, no rush, just something I notice when I'm logged out, which is rare.
Got some free time and it's now refactored and implemented, thanks for reminding me of the issue
Hentball (https://store.steampowered.com/app/932310) need added to list.
It's one of those "Steam is learning about this" game and porn game, I guess, unfortunately I can't see the store page, "An error was encountered while processing your request:This content is not allowed in your country."
Added to the learning list, thanks for the report!
Main Character Simulator is a "Steam is learning about this" game and the current cause for a "Games wins not activated" not activated error for my account.
Looks like GACHIMUCHI Arcade: Lustful Boys ♂ https://store.steampowered.com/app/987090 need to be added as well to learning list
Game: Sins of a Dark Age
Shows as not activated but I am sure I activated it.
Also cant seem to find it on steam.
SIns of a Dark Age is correctly reported by the api, so your not activated flag is correct.
Hmm,I am sure I activated but in case it wasn't,How do I get the game again since I can't find it on steam?
How do I fix this?
I've checked several more winners of this game and they get it reported as activated, that's why I said it was being correctly reported by steam api.
How to solve it? Activating the game of course. The easiest way would be looking for a trader who has the game for trade or buy in a marketplace (Kinguin, g2a, etc.). My recommendation is finding a reputable trader who has the game
I have never enter a sgtools protected giveaway without passing its check. In fact I haven't use/check sgtools for a long while. But today it shows "You are currently serving an infraction until 2018-12-28 18:47:45 NY Time". The only reason I think it might be someone created a protected giveaway then post the direct link instead. Is that possible to know which giveaway it is?
The giveaway that you entered without using the SGTools gate is Seasons after Fall
Thanks! I check my browser history and find this one. If I haven't check it before, it should shows "Check requirements". However, to me it shows "Get giveaway Link" instead which means I already pass the test. This is weird: If I got the link, it should directly shows the link, not the "Get giveaway link" button. I also check the rules, and I'm definitely fulfill them, there's no reason I pass the test but not get the link.
Is that possible that I get the link one month ago and the server side send me the link but due to network problem the server side didn't consider I get the link?
Here's the screenshot.
I've been looking into it and it seems strange since you got the database flag of passing the giveaway conditions but not the one getting the link. That's why you see it this way on the giveaway page. This "several steps" entry process is there just to make sure every step is correctly stored on the database at all times before giving away the url.
I just finished looking at the logs for the day that you passed the requirements for the giveaway gate, but there is no anomaly or crash that could lead to the system giving you the url and not storing the flag for that.
Thanks for your info, knsys!
As I said before, there's no reason I pass the test then spend extra effort to find a leak link instead of get the link directly. And there's no leak link, if I remember correctly this is a giveaway of several long run threads post with sgtools link only. And I'm pretty sure I get the link via sgtools, and you can check my ability around that day, I enter other giveaways from those threads correctly (maybe from the same giveaway creator too), and there should be ones that I failed the test then I have never entered.
I don't want to get punish by something I never done. Although the serving time is almost finish, there's a big difference this punishment is cancelled before it's done, even for a second.
It doesn't make any sense for you not to get the url, that's true.
Since you actually passed the gate, and it's only the "get link" flag that is not there, I just revoked the infraction. You are now free to use SGTools again and have 0 strikes in your record.
Just won a group giveaway and the creator has informed me that I'm currently showing with an unactivated win for J-Girl which should actually be in the "Steam is learning" category.
two days ago I won Counter-Strike Complete which consists of Counterstrike: Condition Zero and Counterstrike Source. But since I activated it, SGTools sees CS:GO as a unactivated win. Since CS:GO is not part of this bundle, I do not own it. I have just added the free version of CS:GO, but it doesn't help either.
As far as I can tell, the giveaway creator used the wrong subID.
The giveaways was for this: https://steamdb.info/sub/54030/apps/ which includes CSGO. Probably it would be best, to contact the GA creator and ask them to change the giveaway (if possible).
This comment was deleted 3 weeks ago.
Oppenh4imer was faster than me, as he said the package you've won includes CSGO.
Outside just got revoked; is that something for this thread? More info here.
Seems so, and it's three games in total. More info here.
@knsys: I guess those should be whitelisted for now, as a stopgap until support decides what to do with all those GAs. :/
Typical Nightmare, Not my Day & Outside added to the whitelist
Halloween Girl: False positive even it's Steam is learning about this game:

Hi knsys :) Been using sgtools a lot lately :P Found a false-positive:
Shows up in the users library under a different appId; https://store.steampowered.com/app/233130/Shadow_Warrior/
Added to the equivalence table, thanks!
SGTools is not working for me, site can't be reached, took too long.
Should be working now :)
Thank you :D
It's giving problems again, I think
Good for me, now. Thank you @knsys
