    [Suggestion] New 'Giveaway' Section

    If you were to look at the Giveaway section, you would notice that the majority of the new posts aren't giveaways: they're notifications. Namely, notifications telling you about such-and-such free game. THE POSTER DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE GAME. All they're doing is (likely) reposting something they found somewhere else and getting free Thanks and Rep.

    Therefore, I propose: a new subcategory of Giveaways. It could be titled something like 'Free Games' or the like, and you shouldn't be allowed to ask for rep/thanks. This would free up the Giveaway section for actual giveaways, while the Free Games section could be a place to talk about/link to games that are free.

    What's wrong with people sharing that some games are free? I didn't know that Left Dead 2 was free for Christmas till I saw a post in the Giveaway section, Thanked the poster, else I wouldn't have gotten free L4D2

    Free stuff fits in the giveaway section.
    People are GIVING AWAY stuff.
    As a result, it's still free.

    I understand that the games and such are free, but the poster is not giving it away, instead, they are notifying people of it. I don't want to remove the capability to post free games, I just want it to be in a different section.

    I do not agree. If a company chooses to give away free copies of a game it is still a give away, even if someone else posts it here. I do not see a need for a new section just for this.
