I was wondering though if our group user stats page (http://www.steamgifts.com/group/f2hXw/goggift/users
) takes that into account or if it ignores whether any additional groups were part of a giveaway so long as the win or the gift came through our group. Does anyone know for certain?
I can now answer to that definitively: The SG system is not as "dumb" as may looks and actually takes in consideration if a giveaway was made only for 1 group or if it was a multigroup giveaway. Depending of the number of groups involved after the winner has marked the gift as received, the giveaway creator gets an increase in "Gifts Sent" and "Value". But if it was only for 1 group, he/she get the 100% on the number of gifts involved added to the "Gifts Sent" stat (giveaway for 1 group with 1 gift, he/she gets "1" added to his stat), if 2 groups were involved, he/she will only get only the 50% on the number of gifts involved added to the "Gifts Sent" stat (giveaway for 2 groups with 1 gift, he/she gets 1 / 2 = "0.5" added to his stat), and so on...
( Number of Gifts / Number of Groups ) = Value added to "Gifts Sent" for the member in the Group Stats Page.
We can see this already in that stats page of any group, members with a number in Gifts Sent as "X.Y", "Y" a decimal number different from 0, for example: 10.3, 17.8, 25.1, etc... means that that user did at some point one or more multigroup giveaways.
In this group only integer numbers will be considered for giveaways only for this group, multigroup giveaways are excluded
(won't count). In doubt, we can always check manually.
