A word of advice: This is not one of those groups where nobody really checks what you do, so you can do whatever and nobody will care. This group is more similar to "Actually Playing Games" or "Playing Appreciated" where there are strict rules, and everyone needs to follow them to the T. If you're more a free spirit, who just wants to give some games and win some games, and not to think about it too much - this is not the group for you!

A word of advice #2: If you're thinking of joining the group, and entering as many giveaways as possible until you're kicked from the group - please don't! Many have tried, all have failed. Our group management tool allows me to see exactly which GAs each member joins, and as soon as I detect new members trying this, this person is kicked from the group and blacklisted by all members.

How to join:

  1. Read all the group rules (especially the "new members rules"), understand them (if anything is unclear - ask me), and be willing to follow them.
  2. See that you comply with all the general rules. if you don't, I won't add you to the group, so there's no point applying.
  3. Leave a message in this thread with the name of the game you're planning for your "new member first giveaway".
  4. One of us (Mdk25 or AZzoCat) will add you as a friend on Steam (so we can communicate with you)
  5. One of us will invite you to the group

GENERAL RULES

• At least Level 3 on SteamGifts
• For users below level 5: User must have a positive Real CV ratio (Check ratio here) OR Positive SteamGifts won/sent ratio
• Clean slate at SteamRep (https://steamrep.com)
• Steam profile has to be public
• Multiple or unredeemed wins within the last year - are forbidden.
• You must try to keep a positive group ratio
• Do not blacklist other members
• Be nice and civil to other members (for instance, if you win, please say thanks to the poster)

GIVEAWAY RULES

We only want quality games in this group, so members need to abide by certain rules when creating giveaways.
• Each giveaway must have 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 60%+ Steam rating OR 100+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating. Games with 10,000+ reviews on Steam are allowed regardless of their steam rating.
• Shared giveaways are allowed (except for monthly, and free games). But need to abide by our quality giveaways rules (steam rating, etc.)
• Optional: If a giveaway is QGG-only, the gifter/creator is allowed to require the winner to play/finish the game within a set amount of time. Applies to "new member" giveaways too.

MONTHLY GIVEAWAY

• Each member will create at least one group-exclusive giveaway every month.
• Monthly Giveaway should finish by the 25th of each month.
• Monthly Giveaway should last at least 3 days
• Monthly Giveaway cannot be region locked
• Monthly Giveaway must have at least 10P value, and one of the following:

  • 10,000+ reviews on Steam and 70%+ Steam rating
  • 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating
  • 100+ reviews on Steam and 90%+ Steam rating

SKIPPING A MONTH

• The ability to "skip a month" was added so people can be able to take a break from SteamGifts when they need to, and not worry about being kicked out because of it. It is NOT a tool to pick and choose which GAs you want or don't want to enter.
• Each member is allowed to "skip a month" (not create any group GAs, including a monthly GA) by simply abiding by the rules. No need to notify anyone about it.
• When skipping a month, you cannot enter any group GAs (i.e. any GA that QGG is in the list of groups).
• You cannot "skip a month" on your first month of joining (i.e. not create your "new member" GA).

NEW MEMBERS

Please read these rules carefully, and only apply if you're sure you can follow them.
• New members need to create a giveaway in 48h upon receiving an invite to the group
• New members first giveaway must be a QGG group-exclusive giveaway
• New members first giveaway must last at least 7 days
• New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished. (Finished = marked as received by the winner)
• New members first giveaway must have at least 17 entries when it's finished. Begging for entries is forbidden.
• New members first giveaway counts as the monthly giveaway of the month he joined
• New members first giveaway cannot be region locked
• New members first giveaway must have at least 10P value, and one of the following:

  • 10,000+ reviews on Steam and 70%+ Steam rating
  • 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating
  • 100+ reviews on Steam and 90%+ Steam rating

(I recommend searching for the game in the group giveaways, and checking how many entries it got last time this game was given away in a group-only giveaway, to prevent the situation where your first giveaway doesn't get enough entries, and you're forced to create a new one to replace it and wait another week)

RETURNING USERS

Users who left the group (or were removed without being banned) and were members for at least 1 month (did not leave on the month they joined), can return to the group, by abiding by the following rules:
• Returning user needs to create a "new member giveaway" on the month of his return. Which needs to comply with all NEW MEMBER rules described above, except the "New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished" rule.
• Upon re-entering the group, the user needs to verify his group ratio (value-wise and amount-vise) is positive. If his group ratio is negative, he needs to immediately create the GAs needed to rectify the situation.
• User wanting to return to the group needs to leave a message here in the recruitment thread.

For full list of rules, see our group rules page

Rules still unclear? Check here

Q&A

  1. Why do we need to use the ratio to decide who's allowed to remain in the group?
    This is because if we don't, people will start mooching, and doing 1 giveaway per month while entering every giveaway possible.
    And we want to keep the giveaways as fair as possible.
  2. Ok, but only ratio is not enough. What if someone buys a 50-games-per-dollar bundle, and gives away 50 games that are worth 1$ combined?
    For this, we have the game quality rules. Only games with minimal steam score, and at least minimal number of voters are allowed to be given away.
  3. Yes, but what about games that pass the quality test, but were given away for free?
    We have no problem with such games. If users want them, it's ok to give them away. If nobody wants them, the giveaway will fail, and the gifter will need to think of another game to give away.
    Besides, if we see the current rules are not enough and people are abusing them, I'm fully open to trying other ways. For example, we can forbid a game being given away in the group more than a select number of times, we can limit the number of giveaways each member is allowed to enter, etc.
  4. Ok, but wouldn't these rules add a shitload of work to the group admin? Like if you have 100 members, that's over 100 giveaways per month. How can you check each one?
    That would be normally true.
    Fortunately, I've been working on a Steamgifts group management tool, which this group is going to be the first user. This tool automates all these repetitive tasks, and allows with a push of a button, to see for example which giveaways are according to rules and which are not. Or which members of the group follow the rules and which break them.

Hi!

I'd like to join if possible :D

I have some question:
· What happens if my "welcome" givewaway fails because it doesn't reach 10 entries? Do I have another chance to create another one?
· How many chances has a person to create its first giveaway until it reaches 10 entries?
· What happens if a monthly giveaway has 0 entries?

  1. We try to minimize that, by asking you to state which game you're giving away, and checking how many group entries it got last time it was given away. But yes, if it fails you have another chance (you can even delete your failed GA).
  2. In 95% of cases one is enough. Rarely we have 2-3 chances, but it's mostly not needed. (Because of the above)
  3. That person needs to create a new one. This is the reason we ask our members to finish their monthles by the 25th - so we have time for exceptions.

Hello. I'm considering joining, but according to group's steam page it's said "New members first giveaway must have at least 16 entries when it's finished. Begging for entries is forbidden". Now u re both mentioning 10 entries for "welcome" giveaway. Do i miss sth?

1 week ago*

Comment has been collapsed.

That is an excellent question.
It was indeed 10 entries for a long time (up until November).
But our group has grown significantly in size since the 10 entries rule was defined, so we updated the number of entries needed from new members to correspond with our groups current size. Before it that, it was even 5 entries.
The number 17 (16 was actually a mistake) was chosen from looking at our giveaway entry numbers for last month (something SGMT tool allows):
10% of GAs in our group got 17+ entries last month.
So anyone wanting to join, needs to be in that top 10%, at least in his first month of joining.

For example, we currently have 4 "new member GAs" active in our group:
HITMAN: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Hollow Knight
Mother Russia Bleeds
RiME

3 of which already passed 20 entries, and 1 (RiME) got 15 so far, with 4 more days to go. So I expect it to pass the minimum as well.

Gremlins inc. is ok.

Don't forget that you CANNOT enter any group GAs until your "new member" GA is finished and that any breaking the rules during the trial period, even accidental, can lead to your expulsion from the group

Homeworld Remastered Collection was never given away in the group, but it's only wishlisted by 15 members.
So there's a chance it will not reach the needed number of entries.
Do you want to choose another game? Or do you prefer to try your luck with this one (if it fails to reach needed entries, you would need to create another giveaway)?
