I can't see my Steam Community page at all. It's just stuck on loading. Restarting Steam doesn't help at all.

Anyone else that is having this problem use Comcast?

I've talked to my friends and the ones with Comcast have the same issue, and the 2 that don't can use steam just fine.

just wondering if it was a coincidence or not.

Oh my, so I'm not the only one eh? I've been trying buy games for the past few hours but to no avail. The Store page will load up fine in web browsers but it wouldn't let me login. Any attempt to do so will result in the same error as TS. *facepalm*

Tried this on Chrome, IE & Firefox. Also tried to access locally & via US VPN. Still no go. :(

I have the same issue and have been having it all day. They must be undergoing server maintenance of some sort. Although Steam is rarely in a condition where it can't make money from people trying to buy games.

I have not received official response from Steam, but I believe that has nothing related to hackers, since this occurs in only a few computers.In my case the store does not work via Steam itself, but works in browsers normal.

There's no bug or exploit. The issue is not ISP related; if it were, you wouldn't have gotten any response from the website at all.

The error message means the web servers are experiencing a problem related to load. It's a transient condition.

I've been getting this error when trying to view the website throughout the day for the past 3 days...

Is something else going on?

I've had friends tell me it's working fine for them on the 1st try.

This downtime wasn't planned, so it's probably something bad. Valve is either working on it, or unaware of it. Most of North America is asleep right now.

Here is the official downtime announcement thread:

I assume it's a Steam wide (or regional) issue, shouldn't last too long.

That's because you're not typing in the correct password to whatever account you're logging in to..

While it's good that you searched for an older topic but this might be a bit too old. Also I think there isn't much of a fix for this.

Think all you can do right now is to wait it out. Because the problem seems to be on their end when everyone seems to have this problem.

For people who experience this problem. You can continue talking about it in this thread.
