I have a couple keys to give away for some games:

  - Insurgency (Steam): I don't know much about this game - got some keys in a Humble Bundle that I'm supposed to give away

  - Witcher 2 (gog): I got a free key in their recent sale's giveaway, and I already have the game in my library. I imagine that almost anyone who might be interested in the game has one already (since they were being given away quite recently), but I figure there might be someone who missed out for whatever reason.

PM me if you're interested in either or both.

I have some insurgency to give away also.  I was going to just post the link here, but thought better of it.  PM me if you're interested.

These sorts of giveaways are for members of the community, so usually limited to people that have been around and active, rather than that sign up for the giveaway.  Sorry.

@Wraith et al - I was wondering if it might be a good idea if the DC gamers could come up with (and possibly vote?) on some standard boilerplate that could just be pasted into these sorts of offers? Maybe something like "This offer is open to active Donation Coder members who have been registered for at least three months and have made at least five posts" - or something like that.

That way it wouldn't be sprung on some unsuspecting newcomer after the fact. :)

Good idea...  :Thmbsup: I usually do, but didn't on this one.  Another idea is to put these in a member only forum so that it doesn't come up on google searches.

Actually, I gave my Insurgency key to the newcomer.  There didn't seem to be much interest here or on another site I posted, so I didn't really think twice about being taken advantage of.

The key was going to go to waste anyway, and InvaderWiz seemed genuinely happy and appreciative so I think it's a win even if we never see him participate on DC again.

mwb1100 makes a good point here. And the final decision should always be that of the person making the offer. My concern was more about how to avoid possibly embarrassing a first time visitor. I've posted in a few forums where I didn't appreciate the way I was treated because there was an unwritten "rule" or "understanding" I had inadvertently transgressed on my first visit. It's not a fun experience.

^ That's why I try to be respectful and nice.  But we get a lot of google driveby's for the giveaways...
