I am sure you reach it after this GA's :o)

And as soon as my ~300 tickets for reduced or free games get handled a good bunch, of the users you mentioned, will loose a lot of their levels. My hope is still up that it happens in this decade^^.

Well after 8 to 9, you need a good couple of bunch to gain even 0.01, usually its 7-10, depends where i am at.

And if they ever clear, while i try not give anything that's been free, maybe some slipped through and i'd be level 8 also again. :p
Plus if this site will still exist in a decade. :p

Oh, i know that you need a lot to raise the level but 0.01 should be manageable.
I am since 2 years on level 7 and gave up to look closer at it.

Yeah the more games you get the more spares you also are getting in bundles. :p I am only seeing 2 1/2 pages of giveaways, daily.

Found 7 to still be doable, but back then tremorgames still existed, if you got good offers/tasks, you could get plenty of games to gift, stilll suprised noone made a good replacement.
But in the end it's just a number, 7 is still high and you might only miss a few giveaways.

Tremorgames... I was able to get a few titles for my library, mostly from IG bundles. The really good games were always snagged by bots though.

Biggest issue was that those scammers also scammed the companies paying out, getting 100.000 coins in a day or week, tremorgames was okay with it because they only gained from it and not getting duped.
But tremorgames was also scamming, as in getting a cut from what you earned yourself on top of their share from the companies that did the offers.

But if you had hit the right time (or check several times a day) and with IG they usually refilled in the weekend in believe, i never really missed out much. In the end it was also a lot harder to get decent coins, i had days where i got 2000 coins a day, in the end maybe 1 or 2 surveys a week worth 600 coins, the better games were always atleast 1000 coins, sometimes even more, and while some games dropped in value through other bundles, tremorgames never lowered them.

If you would compare the hours of works to money, it was a very low paying job, but i just always looked at what games i would get for it rather then money, and back then if you had none it was okay.

You’ve won 1300+ games, no need to waste your energy being bitter about arbitrary levels.

Alternatively, just give away unbundled games.

I don't really know what one has to do with the other, as masafor said, atleast he takes it seriously how some just get to level 5 or higher solemnly on free games, it's a big problem that staff gives 0% care about, i tried too.
Nor what form the games i gave away matter also, and i did also gifted a few non bundled games, if you actually bothered to look, or need glasses the numbers shows.
I am not bitter at all, i will get back to level 9 and so on, it's just the favoritism going on here, i am sure some probably love to get me down behind the screens, and report anything they can.

Remember what justseedy said to you? Well something something likewise. The one always seeming bitter here is you trying to make snide/sarcastic remarks everywhere you go.

That's unfortunate. I see you have 4 more GAs active rn. Though 3 of them are bundled (can't see the 4th, I am BLed), I am pretty sure they that should be enough given you are so close.
Maybe even a cheaper but never bundled game could guarantee it. Though ofc that might mean you actually buying a game simply to give it away.

Sorry, when i see a wave of free giveaways especially on people that only do those, then sometimes i get in such a mood, i removed you.

No, at level 7+ you need plenty of bundled stuff (or unbundled) for 8.97 to 9 it takes more then 10x games worth 20p i think.
And i should have been saving like 3-4 months ago for furniture for when i move, and still haven't, so money for something unbundled just isn't an option.
It will get there but just probably atleast a month and probably more at this rate, again i am not really caring, i mean not like there are many high level giveaways, and i been without much longer, but just find it questionable/odd that this is the 3th time now, like some deliberately try to get you down, when again plenty keep their levels on free games alone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

No worries, and thanks. I knew your reason and it was fair.

10x 20p games is a lot. Well, I had forgotten to factor in regional pricing. So, I am not sure but probably the difference in prices of bundles vs buying games directly is a lot more in your case due to regional prices. Since Level 8 is from $2,000 - $3,000, I think you need to GA about $30 worth CV to reach level 9 rn, which is quite a lot at least as per my region.

Yeah, waiting now seems a better choice. Go get your furniture first imo.
I am not really sure if you have a really bad luck, but your level getting reduced a third time isn't a good indicator. I think others are able to get their level up on free games because those games were given away for free in limited quantities and hence their CV was not set to 0. I too have given away some free games and gained most of my level from them. However, for quite some time I haven't noticed any games that has been given away but whose CV has not been reduced to 0. So, I doubt people will be able to keep that up.

Well, good luck. Get your furniture first, and don't worry, you'll get to level 9 eventually, an even 10.

Yeah, and sometimes you still get hit by region restrictions, sometimes gifting to someone from the US works and sometimes not.
That also puts me but also others off to directly buying gifts,and really killed a bit of what this site was, sometimes key resellers are a good cheap option, but also has it's risks. I seriously thought about getting Cyberpunk myself and maybe even gifted that, but all keys available are for GOG only.

Well a lot of free games that got full cv are stemming from years ago, when it wasn't registered properly and also in the early beginnings there was just 1 mod (that was after i joined), nor can all sites be continously monitored, me and someone else here offered plenty of help on that, but that gets ignored.
After level 7/8, but especially 9 can take more then a year each, if more then 80-90% is just bundled stuff if you gift 3-6 games a week unless you go crazy, level 10 would probably take 2-3 years, if ever.

Thank you, yeah i keep trying, and keep telling myself on computer stuff, this was the last one, until i see something new again, now going for an Atari Vcs 800 (can install Windows or SteamOS), and still need a new harddrive, but in may i gonna start. I hope. :p

Yes, the "newer" (i calculate that timeframe as around 2 years) freebies get often set to the right status.
But it still takes partly 1 year+ till it happen.

All that earned cv, from freebies, over 2 years ago are nearly save.

Barter list partly the old stuff too but which one should report all that games ? And more interesting which support members should handle that tickets ?

Alone for my reduced/free tickets they will need around 6 years in the speed of the last months... (if i don't make more). Which means, use the lifetime for something better as to try to make sg to a "fairer" place. That option is long gone.

Oh man, that's a lot of info I didn't know. I am kind new here, at least comparatively. Not really sure what to say, except that hang in there.
An Atari VCS 800 (had to look it up) seems great. I want it too now :D
Well good luck.

Yeah and the forum was also more crowded, there were a bunch of very friendly people that unfortunately left, some that did cool puzzle events too like a big giveaway train or puzzle "maze", but such are times, some people move on.

The atari 800 vcs was an indiegogo project so one can only get it through ebay and the likes still, as i gather they still plan to come with a regular version but they were already 2 years too late with the other ones, plus a lot of stuff gets fallen behind because of a lack of chips, because they get used in cars, but also a playstation 5 (okay okay, i want that one too) but that's the reason the sales of those are so limited, and they don't expect it to be solved way until fall.

But yeah, you can also slap on a SSD and put windows/linux or even steamOS on it, and play games (don't expect big recent AAA games) the cpu is too limited and not replaceable on your tv that way. the only thing that could happen is a lack of updates and it becoming dead like the Ouya.

Thank you.

I am not sure about the quality but there are some people doing trains/puzzles/events here every now and then.
I think I saw the wrong Atari VCS 800. The one I saw is in pre-order an will be available sometime this spring. https://atarivcs.com/walnut-all-in-bundle/

Oh yeah there are still people, but back then there was way more and way bigger too, i also did a weekly jigidi thing, and each december the whole month an advent one, although recently people getting caught cheating through a script, not sure how i would tackle that this year.

Correct the ones from indiegogo are an collectors edition, with a slightly different look, and a serienumber.
Would have expected the new ones you linked to be a bit cheaper, it is really suggested to add an sata sdd and 32gb ram sticks, so its additional costs unless you got some spares.

Oh wow, there are scripts for jigidi too. You could some other type of puzzles, some logical type.

The one I linked probably has a newer CPU too. Depending on what you wanna do, 8 GB seems fine, max 16 GB. 32 seems like a overkill for a low/mid-tier machine like this.

There was someone here very good at making them giving people a hard time in solving them, i am not a logical person, i tried other ones but that wasn't a hit as my jigidi's and some find them mindless fun to do while doing other things, someone even mentioned once doing them in breaks while working at a lab.

CPU seems the same as far as i know, since graphics are limited it's true that you won't use 32gb much in pc gaming, although you could run emulators like for the wii, then it could make use of the ram.

They don't need to be difficult, just something that can't be solved by bots.
The product page says "AMD Raven Ridge 2", which has not released yet. So I don't think it will feature the same CPU.
