Greetings, folks. Inspired by The Community Giveaway, first started by IAmSinistar, then carried on by moonshineshadow, I have decided to open up my own, but with non-GOG keys.
This giveaway was made possible by the amazing sharonbn. He opened up a giveaway here with some 90+ games to giveaway, but the poor guy got swarmed with scammers. He then entrusted me with these keys, I threw in a couple of my own, and thus is how it started. Since then, a whole slew of lovely community members have shown up to throw in theirs as well, and the list has more than doubled in size and continues to grow.
*****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.

2. Reputable members ONLY are accepted. By "reputable", I do not mean having a high rep, but having an active presence in the community. Who I deem reputable is 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. I WILL BE THE JUDGE on whether you are reputable enough or not.

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
- you lack meaningful community participation (which usually means that most of your participation is taking from giveaway threads)
- you knowingly give empty/false/unusable codes
All blacklistings are, again, AT MY DISCRETION. If you don't like it, too bad. Find somewhere else to get games.

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, give me a PM 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. As a general rule of thumb, the limit per month is 2-3 games. I may be lenient depending on the special conditions listed in rule 14, and if there are a lot of games, I may remove the limit altogether.

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 unless you've already requested in the thread and I somehow missed it (which is unlikely since I'm on this forum a lot and this is one of the threads I lurk on frequently).

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, packs will be added. 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 packs as one game.

13. In post #4 in the "retired keys" link are a list of keys which are being "retired". This means that these keys are freebies that have been daggered for an unusually long time or are otherwise hard to get rid of (I'll try to use good judgement on this - for example, I probably wouldn't retire Her Story if it's been on the list for 8 months without going anywhere, but I'd consider retiring a Digital Homicide game that hasn't gone anywhere for 3). They have been moved to this link to save space in the main list. In the interest of ensuring that these games go to a good home, I'll be finding other venues to give them away on and using them to try to bring people to GOG. Please be aware that retired keys can disappear at any time without warning. If you are a donor, please be aware that you might not receive thanks for a retired key since I can't guarantee I'll be able to convince the recipient to join the forum or even GOG in general, though I will inform them where it comes from. If you are making a donation and you do not wish for something in it to be retired, please let me know and I will respect this request.
As this is a new feature that I'm trying to do my best with (especially after losing contact with most of the donors), I'm definitely open to suggestions and feedback from the community.

14. Things that will cause me to be lenient with the limit are:
- Asking for DLC
- Asking for a game that has recieved lots of negative reviews
- Winning one of my games/competitions
- Asking for a game that was recently given away for free
- Asking for a Desura or itch.io game
- Asking for a game in retirement
To make it clearer, games which don't count toward the limit will be marked with a dagger (†).

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 be contacted by anyone here in the thread, make donations, receive nominations, etc., please remember to change your privacy settings accordingly even and especially if it was set to "anyone" before. Go to "orders & settings" and then "privacy" to accomplish this. You can read more information here.

zeogold: Eh...I'm having trouble calling this one. Seems like an abnormal amount of giveaway activity in the archive. I'm just gonna say denied unless somebody can vouch for you.

Jeets2: I can vouch for myself. I hope the implication isn't me being a scammer??

I don't want to be rude but everyone in this thread has an abnormal amount of giveaway activity especially those you quoted alongside me. Sorry if my first time asking was against some rule. Can you explain how a first time can break thru that double standard? Unless the goal is to give games only to those who frequent this thread and then understandably I'm out of luck.

Anyways I doubt you'll find an old timer to visit this thread and vouch. Most have left years ago because there isn't discussion anymore yet much trolling and infighting. I occasionally come to see what the new releases are. This thread was on the top of the first page and wasn't about Brexit or Infowars or other random hate mongering. My mistake opening it and misunderstanding the intent.
I saw a game offered I'd play and not use only for cards or +1 collection, ding! But I'm not visiting this forum often enough anymore for mythical brownie points so I would need to be vouched for in a thread where games are offered for playing. This forum used to be fun, interesting (for the right reasons) and informative once upon a time. Its wise to keep away. Good day.
I cannot completely understand what you are so upset about? Zeogold did never call you anything he just said that he has trouble granting your request. It's stated in the OP that it's his decision if he wants to grant something or not. I do agree that in doing so mistakes can be made - unfortunately this sometimes is unavoidable imo. THAT is why he also gave the opportunity that someone could vouch for you. And with "someone" he did not even talk about an oldtimer he was just talking about "someone". At the moment he just is not sure - that's all. Just look at the postings in the thread. Whenever zeo was sure he'd simply say "denied due ...." he said much more to you. I also don't agree that it's wise to keep away from the forum either. Yes, several good people have left and several trolls have appeared but there still is a nice community out there - be assured of this.

When you go to a job interview, and you dont get the job, you are not owed an explanation as to why you didnt get the job. Same analogy applies here.

Yes a lot of people have an abnormally high giveaway activity, but they also participate in non-giveaway threads.

This forum used to be fun, still is to a certain extent. You can try contributing more in this forum to make it fun again.

You can participate outside of only giveaway threads, make yourself a valuable member and come back to this thread and humbly request for games.

It isn't. I'm not accusing you of anything, I just said I was uncertain, and I've been uncertain about far more before.

You're right, some people here do have what would normally be considered an abnormal amount of giveaway activity. However, if I'm giving something to them, that usually means I have some sort of affirmation they're fine, the most common (although not necessarily all) being that they donate frequently. If it were up to me, I would be able to give a game to everybody who showed up in here. In fact, that'd be a great way to welcome newbies to the forum. Thing is, thanks to the whole alt-accounting thing, I can't. If I did that, the same guy would come in here with some 10-20 alt accounts and clean out the place by himself, as has happened to almost every other person who's tried such a giveaway method.

I'm not asking for mythical brownie points, more just somebody to affirm you're a cool guy, since you're not all that visible. And, of course, I'm not perfect. I've denied the wrong person before. I've given away to the wrong person before. I've given to somebody and then stopped after a sharp decrease in their activity or after new information. I've refused somebody then started up after getting to know more about them. All I'm asking is for a bit of confirmation on you from somebody else.

All I've done here is search for your username and note a lot of giveaway entries, thus I want a second opinion. That's it. Maybe you're just fine and dandy, and like to sing epic ballads about cereal, which is why I want somebody else to affirm it.

Beautifully administered as always, Zeo.

Jeets2, i can affirm that zeogold isn't perfect. In fact, nobody is. I hv initially been denied & refused here as well but but i didn't take it too hard. Although i did get games here eventually cos some kind dude was willing 2 vouch 4 me, if zeogold feels that i wasn't qualifed i would still respect his decision as he is HIS GA aftall. Of cos i might feel a little aggrieved but hey, this is life. Deal with it dude.

Sorry if i sound a little pissed but i hate that ppl is putting down zeogold, he is just trying 2 doing his best 2 prevent scammers & ppl with alt-accounts fr getting undeserved games. If u r unable 2 get any1 vouch 4 u just count it on ur bad luck, contribute more in the forums & eventually u'll gain his trust. But if all u know is whine that u cant get a game & even suggesting stupid things such as vouching 4 urself which make absolutely no sense, u might be better off leaving this forum & not contribute here anymore.

Lastly, just 1 2 say that i do not meant 2 sound harsh & i do hope that u can hang ard to contribute 2 this forum, that is if u r a genuine GOGer & not some scammer of cos. Hope no offense taken.

I would vouch for him but I bet he would never get a freebie,ever.A lot can in here and a couple can't and that's victimization and abuse.
So just maybe the handout person ain't,no Saint.

Could I request GoNNER?
Feature update: Got rid of the Desura part, I won't return the section unless Desura ever shows up again, assuming they even take the old keys they had. The letter organization of the list has changed and I got rid of the quote tags now that I'm at a rep that doesn't look like it's about to dip back into the negatives anytime soon.
