Merry Christmas to all GOGers :)

I'm back and hosting another edition of The Thank the Fellows Giveaway!

It's the usual format. Instead of entering for yourself, you nominate one or more forum users to win the prize. The winners will receive the following prizes:

The winner will receive a 9.99$ GOG game of their choice.
A runner-ups will each receive a 5.99$ GOG game of their choice. will be used to select the winners.


(Read and follow very carefully! Nominations that don't clearly meet these requirements will be invalid.)

No entering for yourself ;) Thank the others.

In order to nominate someone, you must have a join date of at least September 2016, and a forum presence outside of giveaway threads.

Nominate one or more forum members, whom you personally appreciate, and would like to thank. You may edit your posts to nominate more people later.

Nominate as many users as you like. Yes, even walls of text are welcome.

Please try and not nominate people just because they host lots of giveaways. Nominate people who have helped you, people whom you have had pleasant interactions with, and of course people who have been generous towards you.... overall, try to nominate people who have made your time on the GOG forums enjoyable.

You must give at least a brief reason for everyone you nominate. (Please don't just say "Because he's awesome!" or like I said above, "Because he hosts giveaways, and that's awesome!")

I reserve the right to ignore nominations if no reasons are given. (Or if the person being nominated generally comes off as a troll/unpleasant person around here)

If the winner refuses the prize, I will go to the next one in line. If the winner does not respond in the next few days, I will do the same thing.

The winner is free to re-gift or trade the prize.

The host of this giveaway would like to remain anonymous. Please respect this. I'd ask you that should you somehow manage to find out my identity to please keep it private.
I nominate muntdefems, who maintains the "what did just update?" thread every day. Great work.

Nice to see this return. Will definitely nominate some people later.
Thanks Mr. Anonymous.
I'd like to nominate Foxworks!
Why? Because he likes cheese! Oh, and he still wanders the forum posting interesting things.
I would like to nominate Barefoot_Monkey for his work on the Barefoot Essentials userscript, which greatly improves my experience with the forums and the main site.

I'd like to nominate mrkgnao because even if he is not visiting the forum a lot anymore his magog still provides us with all the important info about game changes and price changes. And I'd like to nominate muntdefems who took over posting these info in the respective threads.
And I would also like to nominate adaliabooks and Barefoot_Monkey for their scripts which make this website and forum way better ;-)

I could add tons of more people but the work those four do is the most important for me. So thanks!

I'd like to nominate adamhm for being in general a pleasant guy to talk to as well as a good resource on Linux related knowledge, and the same goes for Lin545. Despite of the rules stated above, I really want to nominate moonshineshadow for trying her best to keep the community giveaway up, as well as being a pleasant person to talk to outside of giveaways.

I'd also love to nominate JMich for his extensive language and helpful demeanor and mrkgnao for the ever helpful MaGOG search engine and Barefoot_Monkey for the very script in which I'm writing this through.

For the aforementioned and everyone else, thank you all for my time here. Within the nearly-rotten core of the forums and its general brokenness, you stand to shine from it and make the forum worth everyone's time.
l will nominate:

HypersomniacLive (for always being helpful posting a lot of changelogs in the game fora)
Grargar (this cat knows the answer to everything)
JMich (the master of statistics)
mrkgnao (for creating MaGog)
RenKalan (he created a lot of awesome DVD covers for the GOG Library)
adaliabooks (for Adalia Fundamentals)
Foxworks (he's a cheese loving fox, what more reason do you need?)
Barefoot_Monkey (for Barefoot Essentials)
muntdefems (for his never-ending work in the "What did just update" and the "Price updates" threads)
IAmSinistar (I don't need a real reason, he's just one of the nicest guys around here)
moonshineshadow (always extremely helpful and friendly and the way she kept the Community Giveaway alive for almost a year was amazing)
trentonlf (for organizing Secret Santa this year and for being a graet guy)
zeogold (for the countless forum games he created)
I'd like to nominate:

- mrkgnao: creator of MaGog, a tool that has maked everyone's life here much easier (GoG really should hire him, or at least pay the due respect)
- adaliabooks: Creator of Adalia Fundamentalis, which fixes a lot of issues GoG never bothered to even adress
- Barefoot_Monkey: Similar reason as for adaliabooks, both their scripts really improve and fix stuff on the site.
- JMich for always being helpful and posting interesting statistics, helping people often better understand certain decisions made by GoG / CDPR.
- adamhm: For his extensive effort in introducing new people to Linux, and doing so in a polite and helpful fashion (shudders at the mere memory of some actual Linux Forums and their treatment of Newbies)
- trentonlf: Really nice guy who also organizes the Secret Santa this year.
- moonshineshadow: Former host of the Community GA, which put in a lot of effort to keep things running smoothly and also a very nice and friendly person.
- AmSinistar: Same reasons as for moonshineshadow
- Zeogold: Both for hosting and organizing the Steam GA, and also a myriad (ok, slight exageration) of forum games like the Puzzlemaster's Court, which are always fun. + he's a good friend.
- Fronzelneekburm: For maintaining the "Games that treat GOG customers as second class citizens"-GoGMix and thus having helped me, and many others, avoid buying games from shitty devs / publishers that can't be arsed to treat their customers with the minimum due respect.
- tinyE: He's literally our forum mascot... can't go without nominating him.
- PaterAlf: Very generous and nice person. He definitively deserves some cookies.
- Foxworks: Ditto, but instead of cookies make it cheese.
- SnowKatt: Always having fun arguing and talking with her.
- Fairfox: While I hardly ever understand half she says, she is always fun to hang around.
- Crewdroog: Another very friendly person who often helps making the forum a nicer place with just her presence.
- All the peeps from the various Puzzlemaster's Court games, which were always fun and quite hilarious (gonna have to look up all the names later ;) )
- And probably quite a few more (as this are just those off the top of my head)
I'd like to nominate:
yogsloth, because he deserves a bit of extra appreciation after his latest mafia game didn't work out the way it should've, which was an utter shame.
adamhm, who yes, does amazing giveaways, but this nomination is for his reason for them: promoting Linux, in a friendly and accessible and utterly relentless manner.

There's dozens of other deserving names (at the very least every single mafia moderator, and really every single player as well - and I pretty much agree with most other names named so far in this thread), but still, at the moment, it's these two which really stand out for me as deserving to be at the top of the list.
