No Steam Review next week

Bah! :: August 3rd, 2007 :: Site news :: 10 Responses

The Steam Community is due to enter beta next week – and unfortunately I’ll be in deepest darkest Norfolk when it happens. Not dead, at least I hope not, but nowhere near an internet connection.

While we’re all waiting, there might be some early screens floating around somewhere…

    Unlucky! At least it gives you something to look forward to when you’re coming back. I’ll be waiting eagerly for your write-up on the matter.

    Well, Norfolk is a nice place. Enjoy it! Its good to get away from all these things that don’t really matter πŸ™‚

    Not dead, but might as well be.

    That’s rough! I was stuck in Devon the week just gone, I thought I was going to miss the party. Looks like I did, what with some people getting hold of a sneak preview, as it were.

    I’m in Norfolk :p

    I’ve been back a while and I’m working on a post that’s shaping up quite nicely.

    In the mean time, what should we call the TSR group? πŸ™‚

    (Here’s my SteamID. Don’t all go adding me to Friends – wait for the group!)

    I’m impressed with the features present and going forward. These updates are exactly what Steam has needed for some time.

    I am a little concerned (and excited) about the adding of custom CSS to the community profile pages. While I can think of many fun things to do with it, I imagine we’ll see it play out like myspace on the whole. It’ll ruin the cohesiveness of the system and worse, hurt my eyes as a web designer and surfer. (yow!)

    There have been some good suggestions on the steampowered forums (surprised as you are) regarding improvements to the current system to make it more functional and/or customizable. It’s probably the best public beta feedback VALVe has ever gotten and it seems they’re listening too.
