We invite everyone to help other users in our Community Support Threads and on our Discord server.

Please take more than 10 seconds to write your question. A well structured and good-looking comment goes a long way in getting someone to help you, and makes your question a lot easier to understand.

Do not delete your comments: People find questions in these threads through Googling the same issue, and please edit your comment with a solution if you find one.

There are no magicians here. Some questions wont be answered or replied to. Consider using other things like the Steam Community Forums, Google, or a different support forum if no one here can offer any help. Additionally, every game on Steam has it's own dedicated Community Forum, and you can also contact Steam Support regarding a specific product. Consider asking your game-specific questions there. Most games also have a dedicated subreddit.

Only Steam Support can solve personal account issues such as payment issues or your account getting hijacked. We can however give advice on what to do in a situation like that. No one, including Steam Support, can assist with item/trade scams.

Game Suggestions Megathread /r/Steam Bi-Weekly Game Suggestion Thread.

2 Upvotes

Welcome to the Bi-Weekly Game Suggestion Thread!

Do you not know what to play?

You found a niche game that everyone should try? Can't find the perfect zombie survival animal simulator game? Well this is the thread for you. This is going to be a weekly thread containing questions about what should I play and suggestions for new games to play. After the first week we will include charts with the most upvoted responses and such each week.

Now to make this work the best and not just be spammed with "What should I play?", please be as in depth in what type of game you want to play and what you are looking for. There are too many games to be able to properly suggest something with no background information.

If you want to discuss things relating to this thread but that aren't suggestion or suggestion questions then please check the stickied META comment and reply to it.

Suggestion The ability to display lower level badges (Steam Profile)

6 Upvotes

When you complete a badge, I feel like you should be able to display whatever badge icon you prefer. Instead of being stuck with that one you currently have.

Many people have been asking this for years, so please take this into account.

(this was a repost from a guy on Steam forum)

When will they finally listen?

Question Is there a probate process for steam accounts?

Upvotes

Is there any process to gain access to the Steam account of a relative who has passed away? I understand that there is a probate process for most services (eg. energy and water etc.) or via Power of Attorney. Is there anything in place for someone else to inherit the games library of the deceased?

So basically I've got a bunch of free games through SteamDB a long time ago and just want to clean up my library right now, is there a faster way of doing it rather than clicking every game manually and removing it from my account?

Question Raising the number of Workshop following number?

0 Upvotes

I just tried to follow a Workshop Content Creator and I realized that the number of people following them didn't change. I refreshed the page and saw that the "Follow" button was reset to its "Un-clicked" state. I looked around Google and saw that the number of Workshop Content Creators could only go up to 250. Do I need to level up my profile to raise the number? I am currently a Level 6.
