    They're testing the boundaries, gradually increasing the trolling each day, so now the coupons aren't even theoretically usable. By the last day the coupons will be automatically applied price increases.

    So uh, what exactly am I meant to do with this?

    FittyPercent.jpg

    I'm guessing the game it was meant to be for isn't available in my region or something?

    I think it's safe to say that it can be taken as a 50% off any game on Steam, even if it looks like that due to region blocking.

    Maybe contacting support might make that happen.

    I will admit that one reason I want to switch to the adventure team is because that group has tons of admins (like, 30 or so) and all of them post in this thread pretty frequently, between us we've got the whole group on our friends list and we can take care of any problems. The main PA group has over 1800 people and aside from Suds I couldn't tell you the last time I saw any of the admins post here.

    Ok so there've been some problems with people requesting to join the PA group without even knowing what the forums are. I'm pretty sure I'm the least outspoken person here about this but it's really shitty for someone to get an invite to the group from someone (who almost certainly just wasn't paying attention, I know I get a dozen or so requests a day) and then go on to ask group members for all their coupons. So my suggestions would be the two following things:

    1) we have a group for the G&T steam thread called G&T adventure team, let's use that
    2) let's have the admins make it so only admins can invite during the month of december

    On the whole I really detest the idea of becoming more clique-ish in nature because I think one of our community's strengths is how open and welcoming we have been. I remember several times where people have joined, posted about being new and wanting recommendations for steam games, being gifted hundreds of dollars of stuff, and now they are some of our most upstanding members. I would hate for that shit to go away. Furthermore I'm pretty sure if we form our own little exclusive club and don't let other people in then I'm pretty sure Tube would get pissed at us, and rightfully so. So obviously there's need for discussion on the topic.

    However we have guys like Heatwave and Handgimp gifting literally hundreds of dollars worth of stuff to the community and it's extremely shitty to see that generosity being taken advantage of. Thoughts?

    I don't have a solution for that, but I agree with the direction. Even though I've only been active in this thread for maybe four months now (mostly because I happened to wander in here and see @Tef offer up a copy of DiRT 3 that he got with his graphics card (in which I gifted him Bastion back for it) and everyone was really awesome. I too got some rec's and now I can't help but get caught up in the gifting. It's contagious, haha.

    So I've fallen totally in love with E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy.

    But the relationship may be about to end poorly. My campaign seems fatally bugged:
    I'm on Mars, and I have to protect Dutch. The first wave of enemies is pretty easy to defeat. The second wave never shows up. We just sit there, waiting. Forever. :(

    Anyone else get this problem? Solutions?

    Think of the most rage inducing, stressful holiday memory...



    ...wait no, that won't help anybody.
    Private message me something that cheered you up during this (or past) holiday season. It can be anything, big or small. Please keep it short - 1 word to 5 sentences. I'll pick my favorite (don't worry I won't share it with the thread) and that person will win one copy of RAGE. I'll pick a winner in about *1* hours. Sorry, you must be a PA member for at least 3 months to enter.

    I think we just have to be more careful about invites. If someone in the channel ask for an invite, don't just invite him. Ask for his PA user name to make sure he's not just random person looking for a free ride. Also check Steam profiles for people who sign up just today and stuff in that nature. I don't really like excluding people from the PA group, but it's silly when you get people begging for games. I already had my hand bitten once by JDcapo last year, so I'm somewhat more weary.

    It's Christmas eve over here and I wanted to do a Christmas weekend giveaway, featuring the Humble Indie Bundle #4 (which comes with the Humble Indie Bundle #3)!

    All people need to do is add me to their friends list on Steam and be active on Penny-Arcade for at least the past 3 months (I will check your postings and determine if you're active).

    I'll randomly be picking someone from the forums on my friends list and will be gifting it out once the thread hits 70 pages!

    This is a better solution than just December.

    I think we need a two fold solution - Invitation by Admins only, where we actually have a good handful of admins that are readily available when needed. And as mentioned, maybe moving to the smaller Chat channel as well. I LOVE our community and don't want a few bad apples to spoil things.


    Edit: If there is anything I can do to help move this along, I'm more than willing to spearhead Operation Keep the Monocle Clean!

    He signed up like on the Thanksgiving sale, proceeded to enter people contests/giveaways. He won quite a couple if I remember correctly. I know me and isy gave him something. Well anyways, after the sale was over, he never posted once since and removed all the friends from PA that he accumulated over the sale.

    It won't last. I do own a disturbingly large number of games that should be showing up per achievement guides, and have worked ahead on some of them, but there are a fair number of games that look like they will be a part of this shindig that I don't think will be joining my library. Though I suppose Dino D-Day would be a potential spite gift if it makes the dailies at some point :lol:

    If we need people to volunteer for group admins to screen people, I'm perfectly fine with doing it even if admin rights are only given for the duration of the sale. I don't have a problem being a cruel, heartless bastard to keep begging and mooching down to a minimum. I'd also be willing to go through the general PA Steam group and boot out those that appear to be in it solely for the giveaways.

    But yes, I agree that the people looking solely for freebies without any intent of actually joining the community ought to be minimized. This place is awesome with the generosity, but I worry that people are too generous here at times and too many will get burned too many times and the levels of classiness will be lowered. And there seem to be even more of them during this winter sale than previously primarily due to SteamGifts. I think a combination of switching giveaways over to Adventure Team or some other winter giveaways group and allowing only admins to invite people to the group while scrutinizing potential invitees is a good idea.

    I friended JDcapo as well and I think I even may have gifted him something. It may seem like a shitty thing to do, but I'm not sure he did anything wrong. I mean, no one forced us to give him anything and it's not like the gifts came with a set of rules. I think the solution is to simply pay attention when you give stuff away. Stick to people who have been active for a while, etc. All IMO, of course.

    Anyway, I'm off to my parents, so merry christmas to you lot. I know I haven't posted much, because the thread moves too fast and you know, christmas. I'll throw some parting gifts around before I leave, though. :D

    And it sucks, but I always try to look at PA info before adding them to my friendslist. If you joined during a steam sale and havent posted much when there wasn't a sale or if you joined 8 years ago and only have a few dozen posts...I look at you with shifty eyes.

    Guys, SteamGifts should be helping us all get along, not tearing us apart. It's ridiculous that we're even talking about this. We should make it so that only admins of the group can invite, and have a robust group of trustworthy PAers administering the group invites. It's tough, but fair. Invites can't just be thrown about willy-nilly if it erodes the trust among us.

    EDIT: I have a spare copy of PAYDAY that was supposed to go to iolo before he so rudely bought it, and I also have a copy of Dungeon Defenders left over from a four pack. PM me something funny about a payday if you want PAYDAY, or PM me something about how you would defend your dungeon if you want Dungeon Defenders. I'll just pick whatever responses I like most when I wake up or something. These games need classy homes!
