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.
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.
We are looking for friendly people who want to join a community-based giveaway group and who fulfill the 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. 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 requirement for applying is to fulfill the initial requirements, 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 initial requirements, 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 threads.
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.
If you want to know more about how the group operates, check out introduction which will give you a quick overlook of the group, activity and functionality, or learn more about ArchiBot, or review the group rules. 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!

Hello! I'm sorry, but we've decided not to go forward with your application, therefore we will not be accepting you into the group at this time.
There are a few reasons for this, but in particular, we would like to see some more diversity in your gifting before considering your application to ensure you would be able to fulfill the activity requirements.
We encourage you to apply at a later date, once you correct all of the above concerns if you're still interested in joining the group.
Thank you for applying!
Hello, I too would like to join your group. Thank you
In particular, we cannot invite you as you would be unable to participate in the group's activity due to the ongoing suspension. Additionally, due to other reasons which will be communicated to you more privately.
The suspension was a misunderstanding, it has already been fixed, I received a key from a draw that had to be deleted because the key was repeated.
I did it because I can not bear to see notifications that are missing both here and on the mobile phone etc, but I have already learned that this is automated and that if you do not redeem it you have a suspension.
And if I'm still interested in joining the group. It's possible?
Hi, long-time steam user and weeb, been using ArchiSteamFarm for a long time and have been wanting to join Touhou Giveaways for a while now. I believe I meet the requirements and would love to join! Thanks!
Hello! I'm very happy to announce that we've decided to go forward with your application, therefore we are accepting you into the group. Congratulations!
You can expect a friend invite on Steam from one of our staff members soon. Our staff keeps track of all tasks live in Mantis, including members' introductions, which we're trying to get down to before set due dates. Feel free to have a look if you would like to view the status of your introduction, including who will be in charge of it.
All the best!

Hi,can i join to you group?
In particular, it appears you have given away the same few games repeatedly since joining Steamgifts, and we would like to see users have a bit more diversity in their giveaways before accepting them into the group, to ensure they will be able to maintain activity and meet the ratio requirements.
