Touhou Giveaways recruitment

Greetings, and welcome to Touhou Giveaways recruitment thread!

We're looking for friendly, active people who are interested in joining a welcoming community involved in more than just Steamgifts and giveaways, but also a variety of other activities such as chatting, playing, and occasionally hosting some of the best giveaway events Steamgifts has yet to see.


What is Touhou Giveaways?

Unlike the name suggests, the theme and focus of the group is not centered on Touhou - We're an inclusive giveaway group with all kind of members with various different hobbies and passions; all are more than welcome to join and enjoy the many benefits of being a member of one of the most complex giveaway groups on Steamgifts. Being more than just a simple giveaway group, we strongly encourage participating in the community by joining the group chat, or participating in gaming sessions or giveaway events we host, although it is not a requirement for joining the group.

Touhou Giveaways is a group where all, members and staff alike, strive to provide the very best gifting experience possible. Since its founding on February 18th 2015, the group has been in a constant state of development - Today, we're proud to say that Touhou Giveaways is better than ever, and still improving every day, and with every of our members' and staff awesome efforts and suggestions to make the group a truly unique experience for all. We enjoy great company, and new members will have no trouble adapting to the friendly, relaxed attitude we like to maintain within the group.

The group offers a variety of innovative features, most importantly being the implementation of a semi-autonomous bot which ensures that the entire group is run smoothly. From managing members' giveaways to calculating, transferring and awarding points to members, ArchiBot takes care of the manual labour so that you can focus on what really matters - the Touhou Giveaways community activity. In addition to that, we have a website, an active chat, a userscript, and even a shop where you can spend a special currency earned through group activity to decorate your profile within the website! Those are just a few benefits that our users can make use of.


What we look for in potential members

We are looking for friendly people who want to join a community-based giveaway group and who fulfill the level 2+ contributor value requirements for application. We want new people to join us and have fun chatting and playing games with us, so if you're looking for a group where the focus is on community-driven activity such as this, with the giveaways being an extra, you've come to the right place. Most importantly, we want members who will care for the group and its members as much as we do, and won't treat it as just another source of free games among others - Touhou Giveaways is, at its core, and before all else, a group of friends who enjoy each other's company.

To best determine whether or not Touhou Giveaways is the group for you, we encourage you to review our group rules which are accessible from the group page. We also strongly encourage joining our group chat, where the most active members participate in conversation on a daily basis. There, you can introduce yourself, ask questions, or jump in on a conversation - The chat is open to all and we're always happy to see a new face. Plus, taking the time to come visit us is a sign that you care enough to take a moment of your time to take a tour, and will definitely increase your chances of being recruited. Even if you don't apply, we'll be more than happy to have you drop by, or even be a regular visitor.

A few other minor factors may affect your odds of being recruited, such as having a positive ratio or recognition within the Steamgifts forum, but these are hardly considered in comparison to the factors mentioned above, and they shouldn't heavily affect your chances.

With that said, the only requirements for applying is to fulfill the initial requirement of being at least contributor level 2+, and the above is only meant to give you an idea of what kind of member is more likely to make it through - The more you fit the criteria, the better are the chances that the Touhou Giveaways members and staff will pick you as a candidate. All are welcome to try their luck even if you only fulfill the Level 2+ requirement, though!

Until now we've organized a group recruitment every 3 months, with very positive results. Starting today, we've decided to maintain a single ongoing recruitment which will last until further notice. If you're wondering how things were organized in the past, feel free to check out our previous recruitment thread.


How to apply

Applying is simple - all you need to do is post a comment below and ask to be considered for membership. We encourage telling a bit about yourself, but this isn't a job application - just be yourself! The more effort you put into your application, the more likely we'll appreciate you for taking the time to post more than a generic "please invite me" message, and your chances of being invited may increase as a result.

After posting the application we'll evaluate your potential as a member and decide on your invitation. Waiting for your application to be reviewed is also one of the best moments to visit us on chat and get along with the community.

We'll usually let you know the outcome of your application in a few days since posting, but it may take up to a week if we're especially busy. If you made it in, one of our staff members will contact you shortly on Steam, where the group introduction will take place during which we'll happily show you the ropes.


More information?

Please check out our Steam group where you can find our website links, including the group rules page, that we are not allowed to post due to SG guidelines - You can also have a look at our group's Steamgifts profile for an idea of the kind of giveaways you can expect. The group chat is always open to the public, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to hop in and ask us directly!

Good luck!

Gave this some thought and I am requesting to be taken into account.
I am not sure I am fit for the group as the only keys I get are from Humble's Monthly Bundle, Lootboy or Chrono (with an odd key from Indiegala or Fanatical). Well, I guess you people can decide how fit I am.
As for stuff about myself: I play a lot actually as I am unemployed at the moment and I don't have school either. Favorite game of all time is Portal 2. At the moment, I am quite invested in Euro Truck Simulator 2 / American Truck Simulator and I also play Viscera Cleanup Detail every now and then. I am also an achievement hunter (well, kind of...I always play games to have fun so I usually only go for all the achievements in the games I love).
I could go into other things like music or movie preferences or whatever, but I figure I'll leave that to another day, hopefully the day I'll join the group. Otherwise, I can still go into those things as a random person in that chat you people mentioned is open to outsiders too.

Hello, I am mostly a music nerd but I love playing games. I listen to all genres (including pop) but mostly I listen to hardcore punk, post-metal and psychedelic music. Some of my favorite bands include Pink Floyd, Isis (the band, not the terrorist organization), Sick of it All, Minor Threat, Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Iron Maiden, Joy Division and Neurosis. (I could go on and on).

I started playing games on PC as a kid (Road Rash, Prince of Persia 1989, NFS). Then I got a gameboy (and later advance) and got addicted to Pokemon games. During my teen years I started playing PS2. Back then there were no "achievements" in games, so I kept a list of "Games I finished" haha Even right now, I wouldn't consider myself to an achievement hunter; I just like finishing games to the max :P One of my favorite games would be DOTA 2. I was really addicted to it. Have over 4000 hours in the game and was able to reach 4K MMR. For 3-4 years it was the only game I played but then for some reason I played Batman Arkham Asylum in my old PC (which my sister was using at the time) and I remembered how much I love playing different games, and how actually addicted I was to DOTA (it was hampering my studies as well).

I love watching cartoon, anime and movies. Favorite cartoon: Batman the Animated Series. Favorite anime: FMA Brotherhood. Favorite Movies: Fight Club and LOTR tirlogy. Currently I am watching Hunter x Hunter (dub).

Right now, I am still a student. Have applied to go to New Zealand. Will go there in July if everything goes according to plan, fingers crossed.

As mentioned in my profile description. I love talking to new and different people, so maybe I could find some new friend if I get accepted. :)

Thank you for reading, if you made it to the end :P

To make sure it doesn't go unnoticed, I think it's best if you can add a new comment to the thread saying you're re-applying, and you can include a link to your previous comment. That way you won't have to write the whole thing again and we won't accidentally miss your application. Thanks!

Sure, go ahead. Can you please make a new comment on the thread (not a reply here) to ensure we won't miss it? Like I said, you can just link to the previous post you made just so it's clear you're re-applying - It'll make things easier for our staff to review your application. :)
