So, this may be a bit controversial, but I find it weird that a winner is forced to redeem his prize. It's like winning a car and not be able to give it to your brother or sister.
I made a giveaway myself and I wouldn't care if someone gave the game to a friend or made another giveaway with the same game. It's his game now, I am giving it away so he should be able to do whatever he wants.
Ok, hope you got my point and I am looking forward your opinions:)

So that games go to someone who actually wants them.

People who moronically enter for games they don't even want to own are THE WORST.

My TLDR opinion on regifting.

While contesting rules is a good thing, before doing so one should think of broad consequences of hypotetical change. You seem to forgot about that, so i'll point few of them for you

  • contributor level becomes completly irrelevant, meaning no more level restricted giveaways and no more giving to rise in level (however silly that would be). Also no more regifting, games currently regifted will no longer get back to pool but be simply sold)
  • big group of gifters does so to give someone happines from playing gifted game, by regifting you say to them "fuck you moron, it's easiest $50 in my life". Most of them will either leave or lock their giveaways to closed groups and whitelists.
  • entering "for a friend" will give that friend unfair advantage. And remember - others will be doing the same. If of 100 entries in giveaway one is yours and 99 are mine and my friends I'll be getting the game most of the time. How would you feel with that?

I'm having the same opinion as you. I don't care what the winner does with their prize (my only exception being the keydrop feature at PlayBlink for some reasons). I've given games I've won to friends... well those won on sites where you don't have a rule to activate them on the site.

But I follow the rules. I enter only giveaways of games I'm having an interest in it (whether if they're in my wishlist or not).

However, I can understand that rule.

If not that rule, u will see many new accounts with similar names just to get into all giveaways, then sell the game...
