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

hey, is it possible to make a rule - last giveaway sent - like user has sent a gift in past month? is there such rule? couldn't find anything like it :(
There is currently no such a rule on the site and I don't think any of the ones that are in place let you achieve something similar unfortunately.
how hard it would be to implement such thing? or you don't plan to add any new rules?
It's not hard to implement, but it's been a long time now that I'm in maintenance mode. This means, fix what is broken but don't add new stuff.
That being said, this kind of rule is a drama-creating one with the eternal debate of who is generous, who is active and the like, and I'm not willing to handle such a drama again.
Can you add Sullen: Light is Your Friend to the whitelist. Dev revoked a ton of old keys. Thanks.
Added to the Whitelist, thanks for the report!
May I ask..what kind of data are stored in your site? I never logged in and I am curious as to whether data are stored from various queries that others do about your profile. And if I do log in, is there a difference? Cheers
If you never actually logged and nobody asked for your profile, there is nothing stored on the site.
If someones asked for something about your account (multiple wins/ not activated games / real cv) there is a stored cached list of games won and sent on steamgifts related to your steamid on the database.
If you enter a giveaway on SGT, there is a stored relation between your steamid and the giveaway with a status and a date
If you logged in, some user-related information is stored for displaying purposes: steamid, steamgifts username, steam personaname, profile url, and you avatar.
If you try to enter a giveaway or just synchronize your account, then there is a cached list of your games on steam, your whitelisted games and some cached values for quickly joining next giveaways (like realcv, number of sent games, etc). You can check the complete list if you check the giveaway section possible variables to use.
As you can see, everything stored in the site is public information.
Thanks for the detailed information on that. I wasn't thinking it'd be some secret and/or personal data but I was kind of hoping there would be nothing if I never logged in.
In any case, this is how it is and I have a better understanding of what's going on "behind the scenes" so to speak, if I decide at some point to enter a giveaway through SGT.

Sorry to bother you, but what do the "11ea-ba55-fa163e96784d" or "11ea-8a4b-fa163e96784d" parts, for example, at the end of a giveaway link mean and why do they barely change?
It's because UUID :)
Not recognised (not yet in store)
I removed a ton of shovelware from my account some time ago. (All of them were already removed from the store)
I have now realized that my account is flagged for one of them:
The game name is : Naval War: Arctic Circle
Restore the game to your account. Contact Steam's support for that.
Follow Oppenh4imer advise, nothing wrong with the flag of your game as it's a true positive.
I had one invalid entry here: https://www.sgtools.info/giveaways/805e77e4-a805-11ea-ba55-fa163e96784d/invalidEntries
One week later the same guy also entered this GA: https://www.sgtools.info/giveaways/f38482d4-b140-11ea-ba55-fa163e96784d/invalidEntries
Infractions applied, thanks for the report!
Rebons (708940) is a false positive for me. It was removed from Steam a few hours ago together with some other games: https://steam.madjoki.com/apps/banned
Added the new ban wave to the whitelist, thanks for the report!
I own this game but on sgtools it flags up as not on my account. Probably another false positive.
I don't see your account flagged for it, and it's automatically loaded to the learning list, so it's fine :)
I noticed that it was then it wasn't so it maybe i did not sync my account properly.

On the requirements pages, didn't it used to notify you if it's a game you already own? Haven't seen that in a while.
It used to notify that you owned a game, that's true. Removed the feature when I removed the whole games-owned cached list from database.
That was convenient though. No plans to bring it back? A database sounds overkill, but I suppose you can’t just search if that one game exists in my account?
There is a limited number of api calls that one can do to steam per day and SGTools needs quite a few for normal operations, so having more calls that doesn't really make a difference is not wise :)
