Well, I am in, but from what I know, I do not think there should be anything to improve.

No, really; it seems to work rather well and no major problems were given. Only thing would be perhaps aiming for a "comunity game-day" which people could play co-op games or the like to keep the community more tied and maybe even meet more people!.

I have mentioned to Kark-Jocke before to try and get Moddb to advertise it. But I'm also thinking what if you could make it an official Moddb group?

I think what the guys above don't realize is that this group doesn't have the attention it needs/deserves for the things it's doing. For giveaways, you need lots of people. Lots of people that are interested in the group and may consider supporting it to keep the giveaways going for a long time.

Could also advertise it on YouTube. Maybe let more people host competitions for games, and more then 1 at a time. A schedule could be small games every week and one major game every month.

Spread out the games some more! A lot of them have been AAA-shooters, most people on Moddb probably already have most of them. Do more Indie games, Indie Devs would appreciate the attention you'd bring and people will also admire you for giving them attention. Also try spreading out genres some too.

As I said, advertising on YouTube and other game-related Forums can not only help increase the Moddb's community, but also get plenty of people into the group.

The group needs more people still to make it popular and bring it into at least the top 10. That way, more people will see it and more people will want to watch the group and they'll see when games are being given away, and they'll like the group more and tell more people about it on other websites.

Open a Forums! Groups, Games, Mods, etc, on Moddb can have their own Forums section. Get suggestions, see what people want in terms of games, see if people want certain things, there's all kinds of stuff you can do with a Forums.

EDIT: Don't consider this if it seems unfair to be adding on, but I completely forgot about Steam for some reason...As other people have suggested, a Steam Group would make this benefit a lot too...

Well this is interesting. Can't help feeling somewhat guilty submitting my answer on this contest since I've already pre-ordered Borderlands the Pre-Sequel, but I could still put this price to good use by trading it, bypassing the absurd taxes I get on online purchases, if just for a little bit.

Regarding my answer to the question (This ended up being sort of an open letter to Sakura Matou and Karl-Jocke):
It depends on how you want to manage the group and how much you're willing to change. For a start, it's awesome as it is. Steam game giveaways open to pretty much anyone willing to put some time and thought in a well put answer.
If I'm allowed to get picky however, I've noticed the questions frequently weren't as simple and easy to read as they could've been. Some proofreading and maybe a "fresh view" from an additional person could help on eliminating any chance of misinterpretation from the reader. Which then again, I know it's bad manners to complain about free stuff, and the announcements themselves are gorgeous, very well presented, the wording on the questions is the *only* thing I'd improve.

About this group's management, it could use some advertising. It can be done in non-intrusive ways, too. For example, adding a link to this group on your forum signature, maybe also on your ModDB profile. The words "Giveaways" and "Free" are powerful click magnets, and you would be using them legitimately.

Another thing that could be nice (though it depends on how you want to manage this group), would be organizing a wider event variety while still involving the community, such as organizing multiplayer matches.

Opening a "parallel" Steam group could also help lots, and would open much more possibilities on what kind of events can be organized.

I got carried on and I'm getting close to the character limit so I'll stop here. Anyhow, very nice (and generous!) group you got going on, I very much like what you're doing. Keep it up :)

To be fair, Kark-Jocke's First Language isn't English.

Also i don't have any permissions to edit posts so i can't fix it myself.

I suggest taking a plot's game's character to role with it
I mean to be able to answer as a current game character.
For example if you would gift Starcrat I will answer as Kerrigan

Imagine you ask: what would be the first level you would like to play in Starcrft 2? "Rule 04 Applied"

So then I reply:
If I were Kerrigan I would love to smash Protoss on Aiur, commanding my hibryd zealots above those rat'en Protoss' scum.

Greetings

K-S Competition is pretty well set up but here is what I think

1. HTML and CSS, fancy the competition up! The current Banner and side banners are nice touch but go for more like these: Moddb.com
Moddb.com

2. As most people have said in the comments advertisement is a key thing to the competition. eg: Moddb.com

3. You guys are doing a really good job and I'm sure the moddb community appreciates the free games. Other than that just continue fixing up the rules a bit.

First off I think it's awesome what you're doing.
I think you have to be careful in expanding your community though social media because in large groups you can draw the type of people who want to grab a game and never contribute anything to the community. Bigger isn't always better.

But it would be a great idea to have a tight-knit community and expand by word of mouth. Encourage members to invite people who would be appreciative and who would give back.

Members events would also be a great idea for keeping the community together and having fun. Have people vote on a multiplayer game and get together, chat, enjoy what you're giving away.

But you should also have clear instructions on how to be a sponsor so that others can get in on the giving.

Thanks, I do this because I'm in a position to and feel that others should have the chance to enjoy games as well without breaking the bank you know?

Sorry It took me a day to respond after the contest is Closed, I am at Tokyo game show this weekend XD

I'm going to contact the winner now.

Thanks to all who pthe good ideas and those who support our group :D

As far as those who think we should make a steam group ETC. it is something Kark and I won't do, We won't because If we did that we would load up on ModDb people who just want to troll or get free stuff so sorry it won't happen..

That Being said I do think Placing it on the forums of ModDB, Indie DB ETC would be a good idea. I'll get to that when I get back home from Japan.

Once again thanks for the support.

Sakura.
