  1. Survey "Other" results:
  2. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3. 1. What kind of giveaways would you prefer for a person with an average budget to aim for?
  4.  
  5. 50 copies of Skyrim every day  
  6.  
  7. Money doesnt equal length or quality of a game, do research and post 'good' games. usually the best games are cheapish (5-30)  
  8.  
  9. Anything they can afford, when they feel like giving.  
  10.  
  11. Multiplayer games  
  12.  
  13. or a mixture fo small and medium games  
  14.  
  15. I would choose good games (whatever the price tag) as I dun believe price tag sometimes do not reflect the
  16. game actual value  
  17.  
  18. Medium and Huge games all the time!  
  19.  
  20. no preference  
  21.  
  22. medium games during sales  
  23.  
  24. no matter, as long as there is a puzzle (not link hidden in a dot thing)  
  25.  
  26. One or two big/huge $50-$60 games a year, with one or two medium $20-30 games in between the big ones, and
  27. some small $5-$10 games done around once or twice a month =P  
  28.  
  29. I'd lean more towards "No preference," in favor of Small games  
  30.  
  31. I think it would be better if it ranged from $5 to $15 while taking advantage of good sales.  
  32. small-medium  
  33.  
  34. I was thinking more in the mid range, about 5-20 dollars seems more reasonable. :X  
  35.  
  36. Maybe some Medium games for 25$ and below. Every 2 weeks or so.  
  37.  
  38. Small games if good, otherwise med/big/huge after a sale. Some small games are just not worth it.  
  39.  
  40. Though some good small ones are always nice to see as well. :)  
  41.  
  42. Mostly small games (or games gotten on sale) with an occasional slightly bigger one thrown in.
  43.  
  44. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  45.  
  46. 2. Would you prefer beta key giveaways or small game giveaways instead?
  47.  
  48. or a mixture of both
  49.  
  50. Depends what beta, if it's like for example GTA V or Nexuiz...
  51.  
  52. both
  53.  
  54. Depends of the game
  55.  
  56. Magic Crystals. ALL PUZZLES SHOULD BE MAGIC CRYSTALS!
  57.  
  58. It fully depends on the beta games in question.
  59.  
  60. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  61.  
  62. 3. Do you participate in puzzle giveaways?
  63.  
  64. only non-trivia ones (i.e. mostly actual puzzles, not trivia quiz stuff)
  65.  
  66. Yes but the time to quit depends on my free time and if I like the puzzle
  67.  
  68. Sometimes
  69.  
  70. No, cuz it sucks ass!
  71.  
  72. No, I didn't saw any of them.
  73.  
  74. Depends, I do all the logic based puzzles (i.e. real puzzles), but those are far and few inbetween. Other puzzles I get discouraged if it feels too vague, ambiguous, and unintuitive.
  75.  
  76. i by far prefer private giveaways on the forum
  77.  
  78. i will try them if i see them but won't go actively looking for them
  79.  
  80. I do participate in them, but I guess I'm just dumb because I can't figure out the bulk of them. Some of them are so obscure that you need to know some personal joke between a small group to understand it.
  81.  
  82. Most puzzles I don't even try, because I'm lazy. But when I'm in the mood, I keep trying to solve until I solve it or get bored, regardless of difficult.
  83.  
  84. sometimes if i have the time to
  85.  
  86. Sometimes I do.... (Madtv Reference)
  87.  
  88. unless its bleadin' obvious
  89.  
  90. I try! haha
  91.  
  92. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  93.  
  94. 4. Should puzzle giveaways reveal the game being given?
  95.  
  96. Depends if the donor/giver wants it to be revealed.
  97.  
  98. Don't mind
  99.  
  100. Actually i don't care. i do the puzzles for the fun of it
  101.  
  102. No opinion
  103.  
  104. If it is a hard puzzle, yes because you spend all that time on a game you have
  105.  
  106. Depending on how much the game is wanted at the moment
  107.  
  108. Preferably the full name, but a hint or the value is nice as well.
  109.  
  110. Puzzler's choice. I'm happy if they are happy.
  111.  
  112. Because it wastes people's time if they already have the game/DLC
  113.  
  114. I will be like FFFFFFFUUUUU if I solved a puzzle and already have the game.
  115.  
  116. Oh god yes, nothing like spending 2 hours on a puzzle for something you have/something dumb like pony express II. If you do this, know that the unspoken majority hates you and now they hate puzzles too.
  117.  
  118. no matter, its up to the person who gives it away
  119.  
  120. No opinion.
  121.  
  122. If they are difficult then yes :)
  123.  
  124. For some of them yes, but for some of them no. Sometimes it's nice to have a surprise!
  125.  
  126. I do it myself. The people who lose out the most are the good sports who do all the puzzles, they may not mind, but some puzzles can take a lot of time and effort and I rather not punish the people who would have done it regardless by not mentioning the game.
  127.  
  128. It would save people who own the game some time if it was stated at the beginning.
  129.  
  130. i dont care
  131.  
  132. I would say no but if it were a common game such as half-life 2 being given out then yes
  133.  
  134. No , but they shouldnt lie about it neither!
  135.  
  136. It does not matter either way, and it is situational
  137.  
  138. Only if most of users supposed to have it already.
  139.  
  140. It depends on the difficulty of the puzzle and the game's worth, Or the intentions of the one who gives, including trolling.
  141.  
  142. because if u already have the game then u wasted ur time
  143.  
  144. I am open to either way. I like puzzles, but a really hard or long and complicated puzzle with $3 game at the end can be upsetting for some people.
  145.  
  146. Can't decide between 'only an hint' or value options xD
  147.  
  148. IMO they should if the game is from a bundle or if there are high chances of people having it
  149.  
  150. revealing the game will give people the chance to not drop everything to finish the puzzle if they have the game already. instead we can pace ourselves in our spare time to try the puzzle
  151.  
  152. It should be up to the person making the giveaway, but I like to know what I'm doing it all for :)
  153.  
  154. This depends upon the game and difficulty of the puzzle. An overly difficult puzzle for a cheap game that everyone has will potentially make people waste a lot of time.
  155.  
  156. Depends on the puzzle in question
  157.  
  158. No cause it takes the fun out of it
  159.  
  160. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  161.  
  162. 5. Should puzzles provide further hints in case not many people manage to find the solution?
  163.  
  164. If no one finds the solution, then yes. Otherwise, the people who do manage to get in deserve their prize and making the giveaway easier halfway through makes their effort pointless.
  165.  
  166. Again, only if the donor/giver wants there to be more hints.
  167.  
  168. Not too easy,not too hard.If people can figure it out,no more hints
  169.  
  170. only if it's extremely hard and if nobody has solved it
  171.  
  172. Only in some cases EG: Giveaway has been open for a say 4 days and only 4-8 people have joined
  173.  
  174. Possibly
  175.  
  176. Only for complex,hard or long puzzles
  177.  
  178. Depends on how worth the game is/How many are in public giveaways...If little, then no, if many then yes
  179.  
  180. That really depends. If the game is expensive, hints should be given more often.
  181.  
  182. Puzzler's choice. I'm happy if they are happy.
  183.  
  184. only if they want to!
  185.  
  186. Depends on the game value
  187.  
  188. gradually, alternatively, offer multiple paths to the answer!
  189.  
  190. depends as it won't be fair for those who find the answer without any hint or little hint
  191.  
  192. Depends on the value, but I'd say no nevertheless, as soon as one manages to find it.
  193.  
  194. only "Yes" if below ~5 people manage to find the solution
  195.  
  196. depends on the situation; for example, if errors are found, then yes
  197.  
  198. Depends on how many did it without it/how difficult you think you made the questions.
  199.  
  200. only if nobody entered it for some time
  201.  
  202. Don't make it to easy with a hint or else it would kinda screw over those who did solve the puzzle
  203.  
  204. depends
  205.  
  206. Depends on whether the intent of the puzzle maker is to have a giveaway with few entries or not
  207.  
  208. If 1 person finds the solution, there shouldn't be a lot of extra hints given. Just to keep it fair to the person that solved it with less clues
  209.  
  210. Again, some of them yes, and some of them no. Maybe about 50/50.
  211.  
  212. Real puzzles are logic based and don't require hints! Honestly, I'm swayed either way and rather leave it up to the puzzle maker.
  213.  
  214. It is up to the gifter if he want to "share the gift" or not.
  215.  
  216. Depends on the difficulty of the puzzle, if they only get a couple people getting the puzzle it may be too difficult and should have a hint
  217.  
  218. Only if nobody manages to
  219.  
  220. only if no-one finds it out within a week of the current hint
  221.  
  222. As long as no people/very little people (1-2) find it only.
  223.  
  224. depends on the situation, don't have a clear yes or no on this one because I believe it depends on a few factors regarding the puzzle
  225.  
  226. Only if very few people enter.
  227.  
  228. Only if there are from almost to none who managed to past through and entered.
  229.  
  230. Only in extremes cases, like 0-2 entries. If multiple people managed to solve it, I don't see why more hints should be given.
  231.  
  232. Up the the person who makes it.
  233.  
  234. Giver's discretion. But I personally don't like mid-time hints, If someone guessed it without the hint it isn't fair to him. Even when I usually get the most of them, since I'm not VERY good at solving puzzles.
  235.  
  236. Yes, but only if you warn so beforehand.
  237.  
  238. Again, depends on the creator's goals.
  239.  
  240. After another day if absolutely no one has it.
  241.  
  242. some times
  243.  
  244. Id say throw hints if no one made it.
  245.  
  246. Depends on the person who makes the puzzle giveaway, I have no preference.
  247.  
  248. Once you see the puzzle doesn't have any mistakes and is working properly (there are solvers who solved it the way puzzler intended), there's no need for more hints.
  249.  
  250. Depends on the game being given.
  251.  
  252. No, but puzzle should be "clear" to begin with.
  253.  
  254. Depending on the situation. Hey also its nitsogop would you care to share the results of this with me? Thanks!
  255.  
  256. Depends on difficulty.
  257.  
  258. This depends on how many entrants the creator wants. If you want to reward those that have solved it, make no new hints. If you want to allow a few more people to solve/join, create some hints.
  259.  
  260. depends on the puzzles, but some puzzles are made to be intentionally hard
  261.  
  262. Depends on the puzzle in question
  263.  
  264. Should depend on the creator of the puzzle
