    Bots and Giveaways


    Rhododendron

    Donation Bot

     

    You can donate items and turn them into credits on the website!

     

    In order to utilize the bot (including being eligible for giveaways), you simply need to click here and enter your Steam ID and Trade URL!

     

    Once that is done, you can go get details about the bot by clicking here.

     

    Simply go to the profile of the bot and Add As Friend to send it a trade and it will go from there!

     

    Before any trade offer is accepted it will tell you how many credits you will receive for the items you have offered and you can accept or deny it on your discretion. I don't want anyone to feel like they lost their items by accident so that is why I made it like that.

     

    For donations of items, you will get 80% of the total cost and this can be adjusted as needed.

     

    I will be adding further features in the future based on requests and general needs! Some of the features include a fully automatic donation system so items can be accepted once more with complete automation, as well as maybe a trading system of sorts!

     

    Giveaways

     

    Giveaways will now be automatically happening on the servers with donated items!

     

    A giveaway will happen automatically every hour as long as there are enough linked players on that server.

     

    All items donated will be given away on the servers to help incentivize people to continue playing on our servers and boost population!

     

    It is currently being tested on Trade Gaming History but if successful it will be rolled out to various other servers!

     

    The item reward you can get is based on the number of players on the server. The more players, the higher tier item you can get. If the server is completely full you have the change to get the most premium items in the bots inventory.

     

    For sake of being transparent, here is a general explanation about the selection process:

    It will gather a list of all users on the server and check if their Steam account and Trade URL are linked to the forum. At least four players must be linked. Then it will choose the tier based on the number of linked users and begin the giveaway from there. Players are chosen randomly and there is zero weight being applied to anyone. If there are enough linked players where multiple tiers can be viable, it will choose a random tier from the list of eligible ones. No tier has any weight attached to it so the rare items are just as obtainable as the crappy ones.

     

    Remember: awful items are due to people donating awful things so don't treat the bot as a trashcan!

     

    The tiers available are as follows:

     

    Cool

    Player Range | 4 - 8 players

    Price Range | $0.05 - $1.00

     

    Nice

    Player Range | 8 - 14 players

    Price Range | $1.00 - $1.75

     

    Sweet

    Player Range | 15-22 players

    Price Range | $1.75 - $3.50

     

    Awesome

    Player Range | 23 - 30 players

    Price Range | $3.50 - $15.00

     

    God

    Player Range | 31+ Players

    Price Range | $15.00+

     

    Conclusion

     

    Overall, I hope that this helps get players onto the servers as well as helps us populate new ones much quicker than before and that we have giveaways that actually happen and don't rip off players like other servers and communities like to do.

     

    Please help out by sending a trade offer to the bot today to get credits and to keep the giveaways going strong!

     

    Please offer any suggestions or report any bugs immediately!

    This is awesome! I really like the idea of a bot that gives stuff away automatically. Though I think most of the time I'll do my giveaways myself. But I do hope a lot of people use this bot.

    I threw maybe 10+ keys onto the bot for CS:GO and 5 keys for TF2 currently.

    The idea is just for donated items for credits as it helps to get them back into circulation quickly and hopefully gets people on the servers :)

    Only takes marketable items since it calculates the prices from them.

    Hey if we didn't want the credits and had some, say, craft hats and miscs we never used. Would the bot take them off our hands and distribute them without credit payout as "EWW" rank prizes, or just not accept them?

    It will take anything that is marketable regardless of the price.

    Ok fixed up the bot with regards to accepting items and all that jazz.

     

    The plugin now lets you disable all messages (except the actual start of the giveaway, and the winner, no other messages including errors will be shown). It also provides a !giveaway command to open a link to the article about how to participate. I'll change once we get up a guide about the whole thing.

    Giveaway has not been working for a few hours, says "Giveaway will begin any moment"

    The command !giveawaytime is broken atm but the giveaways themselves are still working fine. You just can't get the EXACT starting time atm but the countdown messages still work and all.
