But seriously though have you guys had any scamming or other trading issues? with that get lugum banned thread a mod suggested we could stop gifting, trading for a while (he didn't say you should). But I don't think anyone has found any problems lately?
I don't trade on Steam, only here. I only trade with people with high rep and/or verifiable trade links. Also due diligence.
I have gifted games to scammers before I found out they were. I now put a message that I reserve the right to refusal on my drops.
I never code drop. I MAHAYO.
All in all, though, I haven't had a problem with trading or gifting. The games I've gifted, I hope will eventually find a good home, but I've kind of written them off. I won't gift the known scammers another game, and I am very leery about first time posters who miraculously find their way to a gift drop thread - 'cause the title so shouts "We give away games here!". I'm also thinking about putting a rep requirement on my drops.
