REX Network related giveaways no longer allowed to be posted

Effective as of today, giveaways made or affiliated by Rex Network are no longer allowed to be posted here, no exception (however this wont be retroactively affecting currently up giveaways)

This includes, but is not solely restricted to, gimme.one, marvelousga.com or dopekeys.com, and new sites will continually be blacklisted once known. giveawayhopper.com hosts giveaways from REX, but aren't completely blacklisted as they also host giveaways from other networks.

People breaking or disregarding this rule should expect the strictest punishment possible, so dont tell us that you werent warned.

Thank you for understanding.

    That's quite annoying.

    Well if someone still is looking for that information then here they post EVERYTHING: https://www.reddit.com/r/freegamefindings

  • As a reminder - since someone else posted a REX-affiliated giveaway, this is still in place.

    I've deleted one particular thread and warned the poster, but kindly be advised that from now on, I won't be so forgiving. If anyone who wishes to post such threads wants to risk a ban, then feel free to disregard whatever was said in the first post.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/FreeGameFindings/comments/57j0cc/the_rex_networkgimmeone_issues_and_what_to_do/

    they were and likely are still discussing whether or not should they still let those giveaways get through

    what is posted on other sites is no concern of ours either way. if that subreddit is willing to give exposure for shady giveaways-more power to them

    Also do keep in mind that is is done for the safety of people browsing the forums. If at any point Rex Network ceases with their dodgy practices, we may obviously consider changing this rule, but until then it will stay.

  • A new website related to REX, called dopekeys, has emerged.

    Naturally, in accordance with everything outlined above, they're forbidden.

    effective as of today, giveaways made or affiliated by Rex Network ? why r the no longer allowed to be posted ?

    MOD RESPONSE: For the record, "today" = October 21, so it's not like they were only just banned.
    Also, read Tatsuya's post directly above, including the linked reddit thread.
  • Thank you for protecting us from harmful giveaways.

    What Websites are the ones owned by REX so i can avoid them?

    MOD RESPONSE: I already edited the first post with the known ones.
  • old gleam.io, i miss u so much :'(
  • Now , I see.
  • Just a suggestion. Add something like "REX NETWORK IS BANNED" to the title.
    Because I believe people just ignore the title because it's a bit too vague for this specific topic.

    Aye, tweaked the title a bit
  • Why is this "REX NETWORK" banned?
  • Thanks for the warning, I will be sure to stay away from them. You guys give better games away, any ways.

    I always knew they were shady and the fact that they spam so much, is annoying.

    Just to make people aware "Rex Network" is just one small branch of a huge network. There's several people involved at the top but there's a lot of alts that run lots of groups throughout. You can make it so Rex Network's GAs can't be posted but to be honest it's not going to stop them. When something like this happened another name is used as well as another Giveaway host like Gleam.

    MOD RESPONSE: Doesn't mean we can't and won't try.

    REX are now known to be using giveawayhopper.com to give keys away.

    The problem is that there are legitimate non-REX giveaways, so...
    Instead of blacklisting the site outright - REVIEW IT. Check the actions. If they require you to join groups relating to them, and/or click on shortened links (especially that particular one which pays the user for linking with them), then it is associated with them.

    @StatiG - is this enough warning for you? *rolls eyes*
