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?
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
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.
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. :)
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
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 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!
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.
Do I have to start a new conversation for each entry, or do replies suffice?
Pretty sure a new entry is the safer bet.
NAME: PSN 20% Discount Code GIFT: code-here
I can't for the life of me figure out what I did wrong. Can anyone help?
Edit: I got it to work finally. It might have been because of the bold typing from me copying and pasting from the red text in the instructions. Either that or minutes don't work, because I also switched it to 1 hour.
Is gift bot instant?? I tried running it now but still haven't received notification
Bot seems to have crashed again, down since yesterday morning.
Giftbot is taking a short break while we do a little maintenance on him. He'll be back soon!
Giftbot is back up after a well-deserved rest. He's back to dispensing gifts of joy!
deltaplus I noticed something weird with Giftbot: if you make a giveaway and the thread is closed before the end of the timer, it won't work and nobody can claim the unclaimed keys from a closed thread.
Is the bot still up? Not sure if I messed up the syntax somehow or whats up, tried to post a giveaway about 8 hours ago and its not been posted yet.
