I got this response from them:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We can ensure you and everyone here that what is happening to you is in no way related to the galagiveaways staff or galagiveaways website software. If you have security issues or you fear that someone may be hacking your account or even our website ( this may happen, like for any other website ), please contact our support email contact@galagiveaways.com immediately with as much details as possible and we will work together to enforce website security even more. Best.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They cant even acknowledge that handing out your email to random users can potentially cause security risks. They are absolutely positive that handing out my clean, fresh, unused anywhere else email to a russian has nothing to do with me being attacked by a russian ip not a day later.

Typical blame the user for their mistake.

So i sent them enough details about the attempted hacks to show it had something to do with one of their users (his username linked to his ip address, his steam account, my traceroutes, logs, his mac address etc).

They still denied it had anything to do with them. So i requested they remove my email from their list and close my account. They also deleted my forum threads and have basically swept this under the carpet.

They honestly dont care about the security flaws in their website and system.

Why on earth are they giving your email address if you're hosting the giveaway? Shouldn't it just be that you get the winner's address? Make no sense to give yours out.

I thought this too. Not only do they send your email, they also send you their steamID and them yours.

They make you send the CD Key via email as they have no in built system for delivery. They have no way to private message serials to people, so its either done through email or steam. A lot of users set their steam profile back private after initial set up so you cannot contact them in steam.

Hm. This makes me not want to bother with stuff like this again. I fear shit like this happening like you wouldn't believe.

I think i'll just stay away from places like steamgifts from now on.

Which provides your email. And links to your SteamID.

He's complaining about features that Galagivaways cribbed almost directly from Steamgifts, including the lack of built-in way to send keys.

edit: One thing that I do see different is that I can change my email address on Steamgifts. I can't on Galagiveaways. It's actually very tough to change your profile email address on Indiegala, too.

I've been using the galagiveaways website now for a while, and trust me, this is an absolutely terrible website, with poor mods, and an absolutely horrid community. The site will be dead soon enough. I think I should just stick with the trade section on this website. You can trust the users here, and you get what you want for a very fair price/deal. It's just not worth the hassle dealing with those idiots over there...

For what it's worth, I got a free copy of Streets of Moscow on GamersGate from some Russian dude without a hitch. :D

Won something at GalaGiveaways, still haven't heard a peep from the guy who started the giveaway. Tried friending him on Steam to say hi, got ignored.

*Sigh*

Decent games (except You Are Empty) but $6 is a lot to ask for (esp. considering that I own everything except Deponia). I wonder if the bonuses will be additinal Magicka DLC. Oh well, maybe an happy hour will be...

Yeah, I just bought in in case an happy hour there will be :)

Edit:
Also, to be clear this does not seem to be Indie Gala 12 but Indie Gala Magicka so a happy hour is not guaranteed here.

Well I'm glad I held off buying Deponia during the Winter sale.

Shot you an email with some changes Fox.

Note that technically, it's not being called Indie Gala 12, but Indie Gala Magicka. I don't know if this means there will be an "official" 12 later on. However, it does suggest the possibility that more of the "secret bonuses" will be Magicka related.

I think its more like everyone already has magicka (with how often its on sale) lol. I know all of my friends do :cry:

EDIT: Oh, and remember when Indie Gala stated nothing from their store would ever end up in their bundles? Well, look at how that turned out ;)

Wow. I would have never expected to see such a big titles under Indie Gala banner. I was positively surprised after looking at their last franchise bundles, but now I'm really impressed.

I'm taking down names, but as with the last non numbered bundle this one might not have a happy hour.

Also, all group buy talk here:

There's no 'average', but there is a $5.99 minimum for the top tier titles.

Right I get that. But what does BTA mean?


Sorry, I should probably just search for the answer since it's not in the OP.

Beat the average.
The Humble Bundle actually uses an average that fluctuates.
Indie Royale has a reverse average that actually goes up as people pay less.
Groupees has a fixed top tier like Gala.
