im about to try this out
Not sure if this has been asked or answered so I apologise in advance, but can we use it on any forum topic, even off topic communities, like as a nice gesture to fellow posters in a specific community?
Absolutely! You can specify any thread at all.
Excellent I just wondered if maybe people didn't want them to be in off topic too much but I guess they won't be common enough to annoy people.
I'm trying to set up a raffle because I won two times the same game, but I can't get it to work. :(
I'm doing this:
NAME: Guacamelee! Gold Edition (Steam): CODE-GOES-HERE
The subject of the e-mail I'm sending to Gift Bot is gift. What I'm doing wrong? :(
NAME: Prize Name Goes Here GIFT: Code or Other Prize ID Goes Here
Hey, it worked! I thought "GIFT" wasn't part of the syntax, I feel stupid now haha. :(
OH MY GOD I LOVE GIFTBOT’S AVATAR SO MUCH.
It’s so perfect.
What happens to unclaimed/won gifts after the 24 hour raffle ends?
I have a few that weren't won in this giveaway (https://www.resetera.com/threads/reseteras-inaugural-giftbot-giveaway-free-stuff-all-week-long.29117/page-14#post-5594331).
Are they lost? Still eligible? Turned into first-come prizes?
They're still eligible! You can keep them or give them away again.
They can no longer be won through that raffle -- I'd need to repost them. Right?
Just making sure I don't mangle this... "eligible" sounds like "people can still win them from giftbot in their current state," but I don't think that's what you mean. :)
Uh oh -- two folks are saying that that isn't the case, over at https://www.resetera.com/threads/re...tuff-all-week-long.29117/page-18#post-5636603 and https://www.resetera.com/threads/re...tuff-all-week-long.29117/page-18#post-5636606.
I posted a new raffle for the unclaimed codes, but they are saying they got the codes from my -first- raffle post, as "first come first served"-style rewards. It looks like their games have been claimed and marked off on my original post, too.
Original raffle post:
New raffle with unclaimed codes: https://www.resetera.com/threads/re...tuff-all-week-long.29117/page-18#post-5636562
My bad. I'll delete the new raffle. Sorry for the mix up.
No problem. We're in the early stages of GiftBot -- he's yet to achieve human-slaying sentience.
To clarify, after the raffle time period expires, remaining unclaimed gifts turn into first-come, first-serve. Sorry for the confusion, we'll make sure this is clear in the giveaway post going forward.
People that entered the giveaway when it was a raffle and lost (or won) can't enter the giveaway after it turned into a first come first serve: You are allowed only 1 entry per giveaway.
Modbot's cooler brother, hallelujah!
With Humble Bundle, what is the best way to redeem the codes for a giveaway? Should I be clicking on redeeming the actual key and then copy it to Giftbot or is the key somehow connected to my Steam account? The 2nd option is to create a gift link, which I think Giftbot would support also?
Is the source for this bot available to view (on github, for example) deltaplus ?
I believe most people do the former. The key shouldn't be tied to your account.
It is not currently public. We haven't yet discussed plans to open source it.
I saw a suggestion in the giveaway thread about platform colors, and someone brought up that modbot used to have icons for various platforms (I completely forgot about it), so I'm wondering if having a PLATFORM option to fill so giftbot would auto add a platform icon is on the list of things to add in the future.
Hello everyone! Terribly sorry, but it looks like GiftBot is confused and making duplicate giveaways right now. We're putting him to sleep for the time being until the problem can be diagnosed and fixed. Thank you for your patience!
They shut robots, don't they?
GiftBot is back up, healthy, and delivering gifts to all...who have entered and won a gift ;)
What happens if you enter multiple times in the same giveaway? I wasn't paying attention and entered for two items in the same raffle. Do both entries get disqualified or just one?
I hope I win something soon :3 Broke AF but someone just gave me a computer so hopefully RNGjesus will #bless me.
