i feel like getting rid of some things so i will from time to time make "flash giveaways"
these will last but a few hours - also your welcome to add your own giveaways as well if you like
here is the first one for 5 hours - https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/7W1vs/driftmoon - starts 7pm
All times are based ONUK times or at least what SG tells me

do you like longer or quicker giveaways
im a fan of both, for both reasons.
some times I just do flash ones so I don't have to monitor it.
Personally, I try to make them long enough to be reasonably sure that all the people who are interested in playing the game will have enough time to see the giveaway.
Couldn't care less how long other people make their giveaways. It's their choice and doesn't really affect me... ^_^'
1 day minimum to allow all regions the opportunity to enter.
I like short giveaways when I am on my computer, but I like long ones when I am busy or sleeping.
Sometimes I feel like I would get better sleep if all giveaways on this site were open for a minimum or 9 or 10 hours. Wow, my life is pathetic :)

New - flash giveaway - 12pm (UK time or at least the time on SG) - 3 HOURS https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/fJaSM/
bump it's now live
https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/L1bNb/ - Starts 3pm and ends 10pm
Here's some suitable music to go with it ;)
Less than an hour bump!
Bump for thread, small bump on my whitelist. I am keeping my eye on this thread for sure!
thanks but there is no real point to bump it unless either myself or someone else added a giveaway which is still active (sorry is not one right now)
there wasnt too many replies here at all i assume not many people even know about this thread, exposure is good even without active giveaways :)
new flash giveaway starts 11am and ends 2pm -https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/26DuY/
Going to add one in myself too. GA for three hours.
https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/gdXG0/ - starts 3pm and ends 8pm
Remove the 1
Thank you and have a great week! :)
Interesting ...it didnt matter if the SGtools ratio set was 0.5 (prev) or 1, the number of participants remained the same. Ofcourse the timing and game choice must have mattered🤔
I would suggest to use Ratio for Real Sent/Won CV instead of Minimum Ratio for number of Sent/Won Giveaways. The later rewards folks also for making a lot of worthless GAs and other questionable behavior like farming with multiple accounts GAs at other sites. Cheers :)
I dont want to set the bar too high though, i'll keep playing around with the options to see what suits me.
And the real sent/won cv gets exploited from the accounts that give overpriced trash away.
It doesn't give anymore "perfect/good" options. Sadly.
After reading this thread I have checked quite a few of those and it seems, that in this case fortunately our mods act out really fast. Am I wrong?
Yes, a part of them get handled (because a few active mods). But not all.
And of course only the extremest get listed there, which doesn't mean it don't give many games that give 20cv for 6 cents etc..
I reported nearly 1k games to set to reduced/free, till i gave up around 1 year ago. It's a fight against windmills and the mods don't do the BASIC checks of bundle sites (or sites like barter that list all bundles and a lot of the freebies...).
As very easy example, check the dig bundles and you will see, for sure, 50(?) - 75%(?) of games that still give full cv. The same counts for IG, fanatical or HB but in a lower amount. To only name a few stores.
[In short, something is very wrong if members must report bundles and freebies when the mods could add them, mostly, without some extra effort from someone else, with only checking barter.]
A part of the mods are burned out or demotivated (of course mostly the good ones that done a lot in the past) and a other part of the mods are only there to have a "nice badge/reputation" and can be seen as decorative plants.
A lot of people gave up to report bundles/freebies, you see it on the nearly constant tickets in the "add game" category, since many weeks, in the stats.
I can say that the ones from my group, that were, maybe motivated from my dedication, very active, nearly all stopped completely to care.
The new junior mods will change this trend a bit when they are senior mods but in the end it will not solve the problem because cg as example not implemented a "ru store tracker" that i gave the mods and that they sended cg. If he wanted, all listed games there could be added automatic to the bundled list or send automaticly messages to the mods that no member would be needed to be involved. In each case much lesser work for all and nothing that could slip throught. That is, of course, only one of the examples.
So each one that exploit the dig store with 5 copies of each bundle, do the same with the shady ru shops (where dig gets a lot of games from), all the region change abusers (at the moment mostly to turkey, before mostly argentina, india and ru/cis) will solve the won/sent cv ratio thing without a problem.
how would one go about using SG tools like this always seen them never known how to use them or make that banner pic thing like Culto shows in the image - thanks
I think they use this tool to make the image signature:
For example, this code will create the first image, and hide the giveaway URL.:
For non-private giveaway, you can use the native SG feature (under the giveaway page -> left column -> Tools -> Dynamic Signature), just append /signature.png to the end of the giveaway URL.
For example, this will create the second image:
Both will refer to the same giveaway:
Sorry i missed the query. The other commenter is right. And I found it here:
As for SGTools, login into it using Steam
Thats pretty much it
Final 30 min bump!
https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/sgxOQ/ - starts at 2pm and ends at 5pm (level 2 +)
Mini Indie Horror Train: Ends GMT 5:45 pm (2hrs from now)
The Childs Sight
Final 10 minutes bump
3+, full CV - only a dozen of entries (removing link, ends in 7 hours)
(i mean, 4 hours, 5 entries.)
Maybe this thread is safe for now
Or maybe most are snoozing!
really dunno, bud. like... really
(quite surprised, again. as already noticed. SG might be safer than once thought -obv talking about these small, cheap games...-)
Thank you Icaio! ^^
Did I do this right?
Ends at 11:59pm EST.
