We're live again, folks! A time-honored GOG tradition, the Community Giveaway, lives on in a new incarnation.

This is a new thread made after the last one (located here) ended up being too small to fit the sheer amount of donations. As such, this new one is now up, this time with a Google Sheets document keeping track of available games rather than a list on the thread itself.

Now for the real important bit, the rules. I know the wording and all seems complex and is gonna make me sound scary, but trust me, the reality is nowhere near as bad as it seems.

*****RULES*****
READ THESE BEFORE ASKING FOR ANYTHING!

1. Keys are given AT MY DISCRETION. If you want to be the judge on where your keys go, either open up your own giveaway or go to the Non-GOG Gifting Thread, located here.

2. Only members who have actively participated in the community will receive a game. This is essentially a method to weed out scammers/leeches/ne'er-do-wells, etc. Who I deem as having active participation is entirely AT MY DISCRETION.
As a general guideline, you must have a non-recent registration and have been actively participating in the community for at least a month or so (although this isn't a set standard).

3. You will be banned from this giveaway if:
- you are rude
- you are on the Known Scammers list or have otherwise been shown to be an alt account/impersonator/troll
- your request is denied and you keep repeatedly pushing the envelope in a rude and/or annoying way
- you knowingly give empty/false/unusable codes
This is, again, AT MY DISCRETION. If you're going to complain about an operation handing out free games, I don't know what to tell you.

4. No code-dropping of any sort. Please. I know you mean well, but I'd rather you donate to this giveaway.

5. If you wish to make a donation, send me a chat containing the keys. You will receive full credit for your donation and your name will be added to the list of donors. You may, however, request to be anonymous, and I will honor this request.

6. Nominating other members is allowed, and encouraged. The nomination will only be accepted if the nominee falls within the terms of this giveaway, however.

7. You are allowed 3 games per month. Daggered games (†) are exempt from this (as listed by the criteria in rule 13) and you're allowed as many of those as you like. As a general guideline though, you'll probably wanna keep that to about 5 a month so as not to look like you're gobbling up a lot.

8. Keys are first-come, first-served.

9. NO FEEDING THE TROLLS! In the event that a scammer or troll DOES arrive (and I have no doubt that they will upon seeing the very title of this thing), DO NOT PROVOKE THEM! I know who they are. You know who they are. Leave them be. I will NOT allow this thread to be derailed into a discussion about scammers.
If you want to help, flag their comment as spam and keep on moving.
If you're concerned that they're a scammer and I'm not noticing it, notify me via PM rather than clogging up this thread, please.

10. Ask in the thread. No requesting via PM. If I somehow miss your request, however, feel free to call my attention to it.

11. All keys from non-GOG sources are accepted. If you wish to donate a GOG key, you can PM it to me and it will be added on the GOG edition of this giveaway.

12. Sometimes, you'll see a singular listing for multiple items. This means that the key will contain multiple games which cannot be separated, so if you ask for it, know that you're getting everything on it. I will count these packs as one game in terms of the monthly limit.

13. Things that will cause me to dagger keys are:
- If the key is for DLC
- If the game received lots of negative reviews
- If the game was recently given away for free
- If the game is an itch.io game

IMPORTANT WARNINGS:
I will NEVER ask for keys to be resent. Do NOT give them if I appear to be requesting this.

GOG has changed the chat privacy settings to default to "friends only". If you wish to give or receive keys in this giveaway, please remember to change your privacy settings accordingly or add me to your GOG friends list. If you want to change your privacy settings, go to "orders & settings" and then "privacy" to accomplish this.

zeogold: To clarify, the giveaway isn't officially opening until November 1st. Theoretically, nobody should post until then, when I show up and say it's on, but if you want to post, I can't stop you. Meanwhile, I'm just going to sit here and see how patient you all can be until then. Will you hold back, or will you crack and post?
Hope I'm not overreaching, but 1st of November in USA, right?

AFAIK when our Puzzlemaster mentions a date and/or time, he's talking about the time in his time zone (and mine): Pacific (currently PDT and soon to be PST). Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Right-o then. I'm AEST (UTC +10 hrs). I think I'll go to bed. Night all!
This brand new thread is already wasted by useless comments (mine included). It should be redacted !
