Here's 4 more for duders in the new steam group!

Thanks a lot, these are great.

I have a question (Another one, I know, I know...). What if a particular game is unavailable in my region for whatever reason? Can I still obtain it? I guess the same goes for packs (For example, Arkham Asylum is available in my region, but Arkham City is not. However, the Batman bundle was available for purchase. What does that mean exactly?).

Well my giveaway has ended, and the gift has been sent. For some reason I'm really paranoid about screwing this up somehow. edit: It appears I didn't! All right! congrats , everyone else, better luck next time.

I'm probably going to give away another game in the future, maybe this time I'll give away 2 copies of whatever game. One copy to the random winner, and one to whoever I decide posted my favorite comment (maybe I'll ask a dumb question for you guys to answer or something like that). Is that allowed? I don't see why it wouldn't be, but I figure I should check first. It seems like it could be fun.

@pyromagnestir: Yeah that sounds fine if you want to give away a game outside of the site itself.

#311 Posted by GJSmitty (651 posts) -

:O Didn't realize there was a giveaway specific group. Could somebody invite me please?

#312 Posted by Danteveli (1173 posts) -

@valrog: Some game cant be bought because there are deals with local distributors but they can be redeemed after getting gift from different region but other titles are region locked and can only be redeemed in one country and nowhere else.

#313 Posted by Hamst3r (4479 posts) -

@GJSmitty: Done! :3

#314 Edited by Murtaug (308 posts) -

Edit: And it works! Thanks to for the help! I swear there was a time in my life where I could actually sling a little html, time to dig "HTML For Dummies" out of the closet.

#315 Posted by FateOfNever (1826 posts) -

Just wanted to give a quick thanks to everyone that's been donating games since this started, you're all awesome.

@Murtaug : Think the part you're missing is to post it under the HTML tab of Parchment v2 (which is under the "more" option. I think, anyway. Maybe.

@FateOfNever: I tried that, and I just end up with bare HTML code as the text of my post.

Ok, I figured it out.

Open HTML, copy paste

<a href=***><img src="***/signature.png"></a>

Then, copy the url from your giveaway page (so, http://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/tArL3/bittrip-runner ) and paste it where both sets of asterisks are.

So you start with

<a href=***><img src="***/signature.png"></a>

and end up with

<a href="http://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/tArL3/bittrip-runner"><img src="http://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/tArL3/bittrip-runner/signature.png"></a>

inside the HTML box.

@Murtaug: If you click "code" then paste in the html and click it again it should work.

Here's Star Wars: Starfighter up for grabs for members of the GB-group.

#320 Posted by Towers (96 posts) -

I won Puzzle Agent from SamStrife.

Thanks Sam!

#322 Edited by NinjaPartTime (21 posts) -

There's a new group now? Why? Can I, Tripaholic, get an invite?  lol
 
Edit: Nevermind, I read a few pages back. Whoever won my Eve Online giveaway didn't have anything to say and removed me as a friend. Obviously he wasn't a GB user...

#323 Posted by QuantumPilot (86 posts) -

@NinjaPartTime: Check his steam profile. If he hasn't added the game to his game library he's probably a scammer. If that is the case, then if you want you can report him to steamgifts and they'll ban the user.

#324 Edited by NinjaPartTime (21 posts) -

He / She was playing it, so not a scammer. They're also Russian and it seems you're automatically added as friends to the person you send a gift to, so maybe they didn't know English and removed me. I don't know, but it's not a big deal.

#325 Posted by Zor (654 posts) -

Gah, there a new gb gift group... damn, i already gave out my extra stuff already (GRID, Portal, and DoTA keys)... Well, hopefully you guys keep the group going until X-mas (assuming that steam does another free game give away thingy) so that i'll have stuff to give away again.

4 Copies to be given away.

A copy paste of the description:

By the magic of Greyskull I have received 4 copies of this Nuclear spell that I am willing to part with for the low low price of you clicking the enter giveaway button.

Also trying a 99 cent contributor thing just to see how it fairs.

Enjoy the gift you winners!

Any dislike for contributor only give aways?

Overall I think we should avoid contributor limits, but the occasional one is okay as long as it's not some ridiculous number. A few bucks at most, I think. :3

I think they're great, so long as the required amount isn't too high - $5 at max, I'd say.
