Tietoja: Playing Appreciated

For members of SteamGifts.com that like to play the games they have won and for giveaway creators that like to see their games getting played.

GROUP RULES

  1. You will keep your Steam privacy settings for My profile and Game details set to public;
  2. You will play games you win via this group within one month;
  3. When creating a giveaway it is recommended to include a small group rule reminder in your giveaway, something like: "This is a Playing Appreciated giveaway, by joining you commit to playing this game within a month when won.".

MONITORING

All group giveaways will be monitored in the Playing Appreciated group tool[www.playingappreciated.com]. Starting from the giveaway ending date, the month to play the game starts. We expect all winners to give the game a real and serious try. If this isn't the case after one month a giveaway has ended, the giveaway winner will be removed from the group. Only if the winner thanked the creator in the giveaway, we will give a warning before doing so. More information can be found in the group FAQ.

HOW TO JOIN

You can find all information how to apply in the SteamGifts Application topic[www.steamgifts.com].

Six months of Playing Appreciated
No more reminders
Starting from today we will stop sending reminders to winners who didn't play their games or didn't play them sufficiently. Instead we will only send a warning once a month is over, and only if the winner added a comment thanking the giveaway creator. Members will have 7 days of grace to meet requirements.

Giveaway creator approval
Since April 9th giveaway creators have an option to approve their own created giveaways. This enhancement was well adopted and we decided to evolve it further. At the end of the day, if the giveaway creator is happy with how the game was played, we are likely to be happy too. Moving forward we will not review giveaways that creators already approved. For easy distinction, these giveaways will still be displayed using a lighter shade of green, but will automatically be moved to Played and will be considered as played for all intents and purposes.

Giveaways shared with other groups
As a reminder, the current group policy is that winners are required to play the game if they won it via Playing Appreciated. If they are also members of other groups the giveaway is shared with, we don’t enforce this requirement, as they could have won it even if they weren’t PA members. This policy was recently a subject of some debate. To better re-evaluate its impact and look into alternative options, we are now in the process of gathering more data. For giveaways shared with other groups, where the winner is also member of groups other than PA, the giveaway will either be approved if played sufficiently, or move to Unfollowed if not.

Customizing game data
Currently we (and especially a big thanks for Yirg for putting allot of time in this) are modifying game data (playtime and achievements) for almost every game, to ensure the data is as accurate as possible. The initial data is still based on SteamSpy and Steam, but this is then overridden with data from more reliable sources such as HowLongToBeat.‎com, Astats.nl, Exophase.‎com, reviews from Steam, as well as member feedback and statistics we gathered already in the group tool. If any member feels the data for a game is inaccurate we would encourage them to report this to us. Simply create a topic in the members forum or join the group chat and report it there.

Stricter entrance conditions
As some might have noticed, for the last couple of months we require new members to first play and finish a game before getting an invite. Gone are the days where people just added a comment "invite me", joined the group and then leeched games with no intention to play. We also made it possible to join by creating a giveaway for the group. So far both methods seem to work very well and help weed out freeloaders. Here are some statistics[www.steamgifts.com] gathered last month following a request from group member Rupti.

Planned enhancements; suggestions and comments
Among the planned enhancements to the group tool are the addition of links to Steam reviews and videos by winners. Are you still missing something else or would like to see something done a bit differently? Suggestions and comments are always welcome! Feel free to make a suggestion in a dedicated thread in the members forum or to raise it in the Open Discussion thread, and who knows what will happen in the next six months of Playing Appreciated! :)

Definitively not a super secret hidden giveaway! xD[www.steamgifts.com]

Hi DogeGoodwoof, you can see what we consider as a good playtime here in the group tool:
https://www.playingappreciated.com/tracked.php?q=PXYKX&show=single We would like to see a minimum half of the playtime and having the achievements that 60% of other people got (so you are basically almost there). If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask :)

Hey there, I won the game "Starwhal" through this group, and I just wanted to ask what an appropriate amount of playtime / achievement to unlock would be to comply with the rules? The game does not have a main story, so I just wanted to get some input on it, thanks! :Dogeface:

Hey there, Lately i have been really busy with real life and didn't find much time to play games i still joined steamgiveaways before going to sleep every day which might not have been the smartest move since the wins piled up without realising there we're quite some PA wins therefore i'll be temporarily leaving the group until i have played my PA wins.

Just to be clear i will finish my winnings when i have more spare time.
and hope to be able to rejoin mid-end octobre if possible.

Thanks for reporting, confirmed that it wasn't updating anymore at this moment. Seems it got greedy on memory usage. D: Fixed now and the tool should be up to date in a couple of hours again. :)
