I wonder if something from Battle.net would be okay, like a WoW pet or an Overwatch lootbox or a Hearthstone card pack.

I personally actually think that this very thread became a community on its own by now. We have our regular users, our well-known gifters that hype their games with teasers, our gif makers always being so creative, and so many regulars just bantering together in the face of GiftBot giving us joy or disappointment.

I would have agreed, and actually have agreed to the "no lurker" option not making any sense for giveaways happening in this thread 3 weeks ago when this was just starting. But now, I would argue that we have a community in this very thread, and that people wanting to create giveaways to reward people who actively participate in this thread, by making it lively, generous, fun and wholesome, have a right to create giveaways with restrictions that would help that happen.

I'm been watching resetera for a while without posting, but the fun of this one is what finally got me to post. And time, a much needed freeing of time. But unfortunately the freeing of time means I don't have an income so I can't do any crazy switch giveaways just yet. Fingers crossed it lasts long enough! 😅

But from watching the site I'd say each thread seems to develop its own culture and community (hell, some people's avatars seem to be particular to the thread they post in mainly). It's the curiosity that made this place stand out in the first place.

The real gift was the friends we made along the way, just as GiftBot intended.

Now that the major patch is out and bugs are squashed, I've finally had time to put this together. Here's the Giveaway Restrictions Guide:

Past Winner Restriction

This restriction prevents users from entering the giveaway if they have already won a prize within a set period of time. The length of time can vary according to the preference of the giveaway creator: Past Hour, Past Day, Past Week, and This Calendar Month. The monthly option is unique in that it is not based on a fixed period of time, but rather the month in which the giveaway was created.

No Juniors

This restriction disallows users who have less than 100 posts, or accounts that are less than one month old. It is intended to ensure that the prizes go to members who are real people and active contributors.

No Lurkers

This restriction only allows members who have made 5 or more posts in the thread in which the giveaway is created. This is intended for community threads and OTs where some giveaway creators might want to make sure that their prizes go to folks who are actually part of that community. It is not generally intended for threads dedicated solely to giveaways or threads where there isn't a central topic of discussion. Please be aware that while you are welcome and encouraged to join and participate in new communities, blatantly spamming a community thread for the sole purpose of circumventing this restriction will get you banned.

Givers Only

This restriction requires that users have created a giveaway of their own within the past 30 days in order to enter. It is straightforward and ensures that anyone who wins a prize will have given something back fairly recently.

Pay Forward Only

This restriction requires that if a user has already won a prize, they must have created a giveaway of their own since their last win, otherwise they cannot enter the giveaway. There is no time limit on this. It encourages members to keep paying the generosity forward.

Everything Must Go

Unlike the others, this is not a restriction. In fact, it is the opposite. This indicates that the giveaway creator has decided to allow any and every registered member to be eligible to win a prize. As opposed to simply turning the other restrictions off, this setting even overrides global restrictions set by the staff. It is intended for giveaway creators who want to dump codes and make sure they're gone.

Additionally...

There are some hidden global restrictions that are controlled and set by the staff. These settings are intended to prevent members from racking up an unreasonable amount of wins versus everyone else. One of them is a brief cooldown that prevents you from entering too quickly after a win. Another applies a much longer cooldown if you win too many prizes in too short a time. If you are among the top winners of all time, you will face additional (and increasingly severe) limitations. The specific numbers involved are subject to change, and we will not disclose exact values in order to discourage attempts at exploitation.

Ended up deciding to pick up the Humble Monthly for Crash and Spyro, but have no interest in COD, so here's a key for that for one lucky person~ And yeah, I decided to put the "Only users who have not won in the past week" restriction on this because I'd really like to make sure this goes out to someone who hasn't won anything at all yet, if possible, so yeah.

ALSO, whoever wins this, the Monthly also came with the "Endowment Bravery Pack" and "
Endowment Fear Not Pack", whatever those are, so if you want those, just let me know and I'll send them your way as well.


Best of luck, all~

These are our awesome prizes:

  • Steam: Call of Duty: WWII - Won by Arrakis Arrakis (15 entries)
