    Rules aren't fun, we know, but they are necessary to help ensure we can do our jobs right and in turn provide the highest quality experience possible. Please follow these simple rules when participating in any of our Giveaways.

    Violating any of these rules can result in a ban and no code.

    Rules:
    • Please do not post more than once in any given Giveaway Thread
    • Only one code will be given per-person, please do not ask for a second one. (The only exceptions are Ogre Regulars and Royal Ogres.)
    • Please do not use multiple accounts
    • Please do not ask for a code in Chat
    • Please do not PM anyone asking for a code
    • Please do not ask for codes via visitor messages
    • Basically please keep all code requests in their respective Giveaway Threads
    • Please be patient, we work as fast as we can
    • Codes will not be sent via email.
    • Any problems should be reported in a reply to the PM delivering your code.
    FAQ

    I want to discuss a game, where should I do that?

    Search to see if a thread already exists, if it doesn't feel free to make one in the appropriate section of the forum.

    I have a Question regarding a Giveaway!

    Great! Please submit all Questions here Giveaways Questions

    What if I want a second code?

    Check here, More Beta Keys and Item Codes, if your Giveaway isn't listed then it's limited to one code per-person.

    I want to say thanks for the code, how can I do this without posting in the thread a second time?

    Thank you's are not needed but we do appreciate them, you can send us a thank you via PM or by using the "Thanks" button located near the bottom of our posts.

    The game I'm playing doesn't have a Giveaway, can you do one?

    It's not that simple but we'll defiantly try. Post your request here but remember no guarantees Request a New Giveaway or Contest

    Do you guys have a list of upcoming Giveaways?

    Absolutely! You can see the list here Upcoming Beta Key Giveaways!

    I see you guys do your Giveaways by hand, do you have any automated ones?

    Ah, very observant! Yes we do, you can find all our automated Giveaways here Automated MMO Giveaways

    So many pages! How will I ever find the Giveaway I want?

    Glad you asked! We've put together this handy thread just for you! All active Giveaways are listed here Current Item Code and Beta Key Giveaways

    The Giveaways are great but your suppose to be Ogre's! Where's the fight? The competition? I need to use my club!

    Don't worry we got you covered! Compete to your hearts content in our Review Contests's listed here Review Contests

    Enjoy the Giveaways and do not forget to explore the rest of the forum while you are here! http://www.gameogre.com/forums/introductions/1322-intro-gameogre-coms-forum.html

    Thanks for posting this, Aaddron:). Since many of these were unwritten rules, it was time to display these to avoid future confusion.

    The first one has been the most violated this week and has resulted in us tightening up on banning anybody who asks for the same code more than once. This is especially important in busy giveaways so please follow this rule:).

    What happens if somebody asks for a key in chat?

    I think for the most part depending on how annoying they have been elsewhere on the forum and how many times they have asked in chat that usually they are warned of the rules and if they persist after that then they are clubbed.

    Best thing you can do is ask them to stop, preferably with a link to this thread or pointing out the rule in the lower right hand side of the chatbox, if they don't stop then PM Ogreman.

    The best thing somebody can do while waiting is to take a look around the forum and chime in about the games they are interested in:). On the flip side, somebody rudely demanding a key in the threads, PMs, chat etc will be risking their right to a code.

    If you see a big build up in code requests without anybody handing a key out, please send me a PM.

    Also, please do not overuse PMs. We normally give replacement codes to those who ask, but this should not be abused.

    May need to start banning for posting more than once in a Giveaway thread without just waiting again. Just seen two people post three times each in a matter of minutes.

    Ok, bans are being issued because this is still a problem.

    If you want a code, do NOT post in chat asking for one. You will be banned without a code.

    Instead of posting multiple times in the same thread, why not discuss the game here with other players? It would also beat asking for a code in chat, which is a no-no.

    If you are asking about a certain code via PM, please list the name of the game in the title or the body of the private message:).

    Once again, please do not use chat to ask for or to discuss codes.

    Being promised a code or having the potential to win a code, does not give anybody the right to keep posting that Giveaway thread. PMs should be used instead. Failure to follow this could result in not only not receiving the code, but a ban as well.

    Please follow the rules, and in some cases, be patient. If you are promised a code, you will receive one unless you break the rules.

    If there is a problem with a code, please PM me or Aaddron rather than posting again the Giveaway thread:).
