    Unofficial (but approved by bdaggers) loansies suggestions:

    If you're about to give something away, why not check back the last 4-5 pages to see what else that user has already claimed. If they've already had some stuff, why be afraid to ask that you wait a few days for someone else to claim and if no one does, they can then have it. That seems like the fairest solution.

    In addition, in the spirit of the thread, anything given up for free in this thread that can be gifted back (i.e. physical copies of games) should be given back to the community as soon as you've finished them.
    I endorse this, if that makes any difference ?

    Morning chaps
    I hope I can join in this discussion without upsetting anyone, I have given many items away over the years and also received a fair few as well :)

    My only "concern" about the statement above is that it is indeed implied that you are simply loaining the game, rather than it being a “gift” and that there is a certain "pressure" to return to the collective/hivemind ;) after completion, which if that is now what it is fine and I really need to shut my dirty whore mouth.

    I have noticed a trend where it now seems we are indeed loaning and not actively giving away to the Charity thread, once I give something away on here I don't care if the next person trades it, sells it to make himself a couple of quid, keeps it for his/her collection etc. As far as I’m concerned it is their game.

    Likewise if I do get a game from here I would like to think it is mine to do with as I want, which may mean putting back on here, passing onto one of my many nephews or it may stay uncompleted for a month or two etc.

    We do seem to have had a few EGers lately that tend to appear on here far more often in a wanting rather than offering capacity, so I think the idea of having a look back over previous posts is a great idea, just to make it fairer.

    ...just my thoughts before I head to the Gym.

    ...On that bombshell I have Deus Ex HR 360 still up for grabs.

    Spread the love.

    Keep the love.

    I endorse both of these methods.

    BUT I do want people to consider if the 'receiver' has also shown 'giving' tendencies, where possible.

    Fair points lads! Back on topic now! :)

    Origin codes:
    Dead Space
    Burnout
    Crysis 2
    Dead Space 3
    Medal of Honor
    Mirrors Edge

    Steam codes:
    Dead Space
    Burnout
    Crysis 2
    Medal of Honor
    Mirrors Edge

    All free to a good home! If you've got friends or family who would want them, then give me a shout. Everyone was so kind to me when the sale was on, that I went and bought the bundle when I could afford it, just to give back to both the community & the charities.

    Got it from this thread a couple of weeks ago. :)

    @Duffman5 I don't disagree with you pal.

    I think what that guideline was about was more of a 'if someone requests Far Cry 3, Dishonoured, Remember Me and games of that ilk, and offers up games like a scratched copy of Midnight Club on XBOX (no box) and PES 2009 on PS3, and never puts those original items back up in the thread (not one), they're likely to be takers taking advantage of the system.

    I'd personally hate to think anyone ever traded anything given to them on here, but that's just my own ethics kicking in. I'm sure some have. If you want to keep a game because you loved it, or give it away (just not on here) I think that's in the spirit still, but whoring stuff to trade and/or to build a backlog and not giving stuff back is naughty, IMO.

    But in essence I don't disagree with you, I just think something needs to be said as a 'guideline' in order to set the tone of 'if you take the piss, some of us are watching to ensure this thread stays the happy clappy place it's always managed to remain, and you will be pointed out and publicly ridiculed', as others have been in the past.

    TL;DR – Don’t be a dick.

    Don’t just come here to get free games without giving anything back. If you are giving away games, make sure they’re going to someone who deserves it and isn’t one of these ‘takers’.

    Still got Burnout Paradise on Steam to get rid of, even though nearly everyone has got it now :) I've also got a $10 in game coupon for March of War which I definitely will never use.

    I think the 2 day ones only let you play online, not have any other gold benefits?
