    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.

    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.

    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.
     
  24. 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.

    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 ?
     
  28. Cerium

    Project Lead Administrator OP

    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!

    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?

    Do I have to start a new conversation for each entry, or do replies suffice?

    NAME: PSN 20% Discount Code GIFT: code-here
    RAFFLE
    LENGTH: 30m
    THREAD: https://www.resetera.com/threads/psn-20-discount-codes-are-being-sent-via-mail.31172/


    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.

    To get back to this, what I meant was that if there is some "requirement" to win, like providing receipt for a donation to a charity, how would that work? Is there some mechanism in a RAFFLE type to request the "next" winner?

    I didn't see this; what happens to giveaways submitted when GiftBot is down? Will they automatically be posted when you guys put him back up? Or is it just a "dead" message?

    Giftbot is back up after a well-deserved rest. He's back to dispensing gifts of joy!

    It should be posted by now.

  47. 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.
