BUG:

A game that isn't released yet doesn't show the whole game info while in "Detail View". For example, before I had this beta on, From Dust would show this below "Game Info":

"From Dust is coming soon."
"To find others who play(...)Steam Friends list."
"If you need tecnical support(...)Steam Support."

And with this Beta, I only have the middle sentence below "Game Info":

"To find others who play(...)Steam Friends list."

It's no big deal, but I think Steam will want this fixed.

There should be an option with the tags to group offline friends under a single banner. At the moment, each of my groups has ~20 people with 25% of them online at any given time. The tradeoff between tags or no-tags is partially nullified: It makes things more cumbersome to manage.

pending invite bug.

I have 17 pending invites (14 group and 3 friend invites) but both the friends tab and the groups tab say 17 pending invites, shouldnt it say 3 invites on the friends tab and 14 on the groups not just display 17 on both?

I can't tell if this is a beta thing or a GMod thing. But since the last update while playing GMod Steam will crash obviously leaving the game hanging. I haven't really played anything else lately, but I'll try something else and see if it continues.

I would upload a crash dump, but I don't know where they are.

Can you please sort friends list alphabetically by game, not by name.

goldnuts
08-14-2011, 01:09 PM
Uh ? thats the whole point of alphabetically

They ARE sorted alphabetically already, AND game at the top

If you mean sort by game, then you mean a new option SORT BY GAME NAME

PS good idea ! I approve.

PPS wow u just got SIX rep cookies :D I'm not the only one to approve

Suggestion

Allow for some backpack sorting from steam without having to load up TF2. Right now it seems like my backpack is almost organized by the date the item was received (except I got my Soldier's stash back in the first hat batch, and my soldier's medal shows up before the stash).

Here's what I'm asking for: I want to be able to mark stuff as "wants to trade" and other stuff as "wants to keep". Also, give us an option to show entire backpack publicly vs "only show items wanted to trade".

Combine that with a nice search feature so if you're looking for (example) a strange shotgun, you can be matched up with someone who has marked one for trade.

Even better: fix it so I can put an item up for trade, and say what I want in return, and then if someone agrees to that deal, let the deal take place without me having to initiate the trade. A sort of "trade plaza" where I leave my item in Steam's custody and Steam brokers the deal for me.

I hate dealing with the general public for trades, but this would simplify things quite a bit (and might introduce some competition for decent offers)

I figure if you removed the item from the backpack while it was up for trade, it would prevent people trying to sell it off fast on their own and glitch out the system or something.

You might limit everyone to 1 trade like this at a time and expand the number if/when the trader's rep goes up. And have the rep only go up with successful trades, so that would be further incentive to not put up a renamed backburner and ask for a bill's hat in return or something stupid.

I've been waiting for an update like this since trading was introduced...

Thankyou, I already suggested this as well as search ! ;) and we need a lobby/mall system or something. We desperately need sorted inventory, SEARCH and we need reliable STATS on items. We desperately need drag and drop better suited to chatroom style trading, IT WORKS SO WELL please don't miss those posts Valve

Hey, does anybody know if I activate a product on steam, with the steam trading beta up and (at least) semi-running,
1. Will it give me the option to add the games to my library or inventory?

2. If I already have some of the games, say if the code I'm activating is
a pack of games, will it add them to my inventory, or will they be lost in limbo?

3. Will it tell me I already have some or all of the games, and eat my product code?

I looked all over the forums and couldn't find a good answer for any of these. I sent in a ticket to steam support and they straight up refused to answer my question, saying:
"Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

We do not offer technical support for the Steam beta.

You may, however, be able to find helpful information in the Team Fortress 2 Beta forums"
Which was not helpful to me.
An answer would be gratefully appreciated.

Found a weird bug

Type a tag name in, press OK and it comes up ticked.

The person disappeared ! no group with that name.. oh here he is, in SOME OTHER GROUP that was there before, has the old name, yet that name has disappeared from the edit tags list ! weirdddd

So again

Had 3 tags A B C

Added new tag D by typing name and CLICKING OK (normally I type and press enter)

Person appeared in B, with name B

Yet tag edit list now shows A C and D !

Doing it again with E, and pressing enter not clicking the OK box, now he is in 2 groups, B and E and the list shows A C D E as available tags. The old tag is gone

Confirmed: Tag "CASH BUYER" is completely gone from my list of available tags to tick, yet this person has been placed in that old, unused group since I cant delete it. Yet.. it seems to have been deleted. And hes not in the group thats ticked. That, doesnt exist.. (the new tag i made, D in the above case)

Unticking removed him from this old obsolete group "Cash buyer" (B in the above case)

Cannot re-tick. Both names I would need to tick are gone. Suss (never was there) and Cash buyer (whered it go anyway since i cant delete?)

PS above, you mean 3rded or more :D I suggested it way back ! at least that means we'll get it I hope !

Anyone noticed, there are no popups when a friend signs in ?
My friends tab is configured so i think it's a bug.

Another thing, my steam client doesn't run smoothly, and when i say smoothly i mean, it doesn't open up menus and itself like it should do, it opens with a little delay.

Not directly related to the Steam beta, but considering there are skin engine changes could you please fix scrollviews? Example video: http://cl.ly/252n0p2D1d1F2J0l2M01

Note that the scrollview doesn't adjust the content offset as more space becomes available.

Suggestion:

I've encountered this while trading a few times already and it is easy to get scammed by it (which was the whole point with this trading thing, right?). And that is when people have steam keys that they're trading. My suggestion is that they can redeem the keys as a gift, that way they can open it themself if they want later, or they can trade it through steam trading.

tl;dr: Redeem keys as gifts

Suggestion:

I've been having this idea in my head for some months now, building it bigger and bigger, and I'd like to post it here in case some Valve staff will read my post. In case not, I might try my luck and post it again to their email.

So, this trading sounds quite good, but it seems very limited. What I've been thinking is, why can't we sell our bought Steam games, or trade them for other games from friends?

Valve won't, of course, send peoples money back to them. But what about a Steam selling system, where I could sell a game I've bought earlier, and receive some cash to the Steam Wallet?

Let's take an example. I have bought Half-Life 2, and I have played it for hours and hours, and am finally all done with it. I'd like to sell it. So, with this new selling system, I could right-click the game in Steam, choose "Sell game" and a new warning window would appear. The selling price would be, perhaps, a third of the recent price of that in Steam, for Half-Life 2 it would be, in that case, approx. 3 dollars. So I would press ok and receive 3 dollars to my Steam accounts wallet, and in exchange, Half-Life 2 would be deleted from my Steam library.

What do you say? Wouldn't this be quite cool? The games you are tired of could be sold away and you could by new games with that virtual money.

Looks like Green Man Gaming's trade-in, where you buy a game and can trade it later for a certain value, for example, you buy a $50 game, then trades it later for a $15 or $20 one.

Not sure if it's a bug or just something on my side. When I tried to trade with someone, the trading window was shrunk and stuck in the upper left corner of the screen. I can barely see anything in it.

Can't drag, can't resize, can't do anything except use the scroll buttons to look around like I'm going over the deal through a paper towel tube.

Bug

If one places a lots of items into the trade (tf2) and you hold click one one of them showing you the description, then he removes that current item, the description will stay there and you can't make it go away ;\ it basically blocks all the inv slots.

It occured to me as I was hovering the cursor over the Tf2 Rift Sniper Mask(hat) thing and as he removed the items i couldn't get rid of it, the description and the item's picture.

It has my first SS instead of what i typed in, but when I choose Tag As I see the real name, but not in chat menu. Just a notice to you guys, Its not a problem that I need to fix.

- Steam wallet as a payment method, 1 to 1.5% fee to withdraw

THIS.

I think by allowing this option along with mixed payments formats (steam wallet/gift games/items/combination of these) you would likely achieve more profit on the fees charged from players. Since items became more priced these days tons of lowballers are trying to push prices to lower than reality amounts.

At least people from Brazil are very supportive of this idea!

goldnuts
08-15-2011, 12:54 PM
Yes ! and I think market confidence and prices on good items would be at an all time high. People would be more confident to invest in the market, because withdrawing isn't a hassle anymore, and no scammers

Add this to "vintaged" unusuals (cant be got anymore) and expect a market boom and secure prices that won't drop

Your ideas are pretty nice, but:- Custom friend names is not so cool. ;)

I think, that sending messages into offline users would be awesome. :cool:

- Show friends in main list even when tagged (as option?)
Great idea! :D

Valve could move the 'friends, groups' tabs to the right side, and enlarge our avatar. It's just a suggestion, but I think, that would be nice. :)

BUG

Screenshot (http://i.imgur.com/HK0LW.png)

Someone removed me as a friend and this was left over in my friends list. They were not listed on my profile page or the tag for all users, but they were shown under one of my custom tags.

To fix this, I had to click on their dropdown and then the option to add them as a friend. Once I did this, they were moved into the invitation sent group. I then went back to their dropdown and removed them as a friend. At that point they were not listed anywhere.

My guess is that the friend was removed from my friends list but not from my custom tags list. The friend might not even have the beta.

All in all, the bug wasn't that big of a deal. The tag feature alone is enough for me to keep using the beta.

goldnuts
08-15-2011, 01:30 PM
Yes, definitely a bug there already mentioned and an example how i got it to happen. I have these [unknown] ppl and cant remove unless I do what you did to remove em. For now, leaving then

Can anyone help?

Suggestion: Timestamp on the gift so we can check when the gift was purchased. This timestamp should be visible during the trade and we should be able to choose whether or not we want to show them only when the item is on our inventory.

Reason: Old gifting system had lots of issues with chargebacks and horror stories about how accepting a random gift disabled accounts or games got revoked and all that. Providing a timestamp will give us means to ensure that a gift won't be revoked because of a charge-back from a malicious trader.

Say, 15 days+ on a gift would mean a pretty good chance of not being disabled for example.

Edit: Showing the payment method (Credit card, PayPal, Steam wallet etc) might also be good idea, but I don't know if it steps on any privacy issues.

I don't know if this is a bug with the beta, but when I change the name of a custom shortcut on Steam, for example, program.exe to Game, it doesn't instantly updates, it does shows the new name on the friend list "now playing", but I have to restart Steam in order to show it on the library.

Hi, lost a Genuine Pip Boy !

Just before item server went down recently, I traded over steam

First trade was PROTOTYPE + HATS for GENUINE PIP

Second trade was another copy of PROTOTYPE for GENUINE PIP + HATS

I have everything, except both pips ! (already had one genuine, should have 3 !)

The non genuine pip I have, I crafted

I have tried to verify with TF2items but it didn't have the history. Also, saving the log of the items when trading with steam should be an option

SUPPORT TICKET INFO ^^ just submitted.

I guess it was around 2hrs ago ? maybe less

Yes, it's on everyone's client.

However, there's a scroll bar on the edge of the chat window, in which you can clearly see if you've hit the bottom of the chat, is there not?

The latest beta and the one previous seem to have developed a fondness for chewing up CPU cycles when they should be idling. With nothing else but Steam running on my machine, I see CPU1 (on a Core i5 750) sitting constantly at about 25%, with spikes to 50%. A quick check of Task Manager reveals that the culprit is the Steam client.

Any reason why an idle Steam client would be stealing CPU cycles? (And no, it is not downloading any games when this happens)

something good to have is a FREAKING HISTORY,
a real working history.
the one now on steam community fails miserably.
says i own section 8,
but not the friends i added today.
i want to find a friend who gifted me the game,cause i cant remember hes name and he gave me the wrong game(YES IKNOW he wont probly refund me or give me the other 3 copy he owes me but still >.>) when i traded its says 4 packs. but it just 1 game with 3 dlc which make it 4 packs. which could be a really missleading thing. (or i read really wrong. but i dont really think i could read that wrong that much -.-)
so a history of somekind would be good.
and i payed 1 bills + 3 keys for 1 copy of section 8 when it only cost 5 bucks YIPPIE nice going valve thougth this was suppose to reduce stuff like this, its easy and more safer to actualy use the old method -.-. thanks valve :3
and yes iam mad :3


TL;DR
a history of all tradings done

Edit:
its seem i read wrong it was 4 items,

Please have all friends still show up in the "Friends" group even when they're tagged, I liked that a lot better. If this is the way it's going to be then I'll have to do without this feature. There needs to be an "All" group of some sort.

Also remember which groups are collapsed/expanded between restarts.

Can one of you Valve guys fix the "Backup and Restore Games list" to list games alphabetically?
I like to backup games that come in bundles together like the Indi Flight Pack or Humble Indie Bundle.

It's annoying to find a specific game when you have over hundred and the games are listed what seems to be randomly.
However I think there an underlying order to this chaos.

It's not always possible to log in to your Steam account. For example, maybe someone forgot their password or their account was "hacked". That's why Steam support is completely separate from Steam.

What I mean is that Steam has its own web browser, I do not think it takes that there will be separate pages Steam Client with the system browser ... What he proposed is that by giving Steam Support / Forum or from the client, open the web page, but not with the system browser, but the web browser on Steam.

PD

Not a new support site ...

Only when you open links on Steam, such as Steam Support or Forum.
To open the Steam web browser and not the system's web browser to ensure 100% web compatibility and greater convenience and speed of opening ...

BUG

I've been organizing all my friends into tags and recently decided to have a "TF2 Temp Traders" tag. However, I noticed that if they're tagged when you remove them from your list, they become "(unknown)" and it's starting to clutter up my list. I have no way to remove the tags after they've been dropped from the friends list.

Example (http://i.imgur.com/37bA2.png)

BUGS

1) Like someone said a few posts before, friends will become 'unknown' if removed from your list while they are in a group.

2) I can no longer change the name of my non-steam games while using this Beta.

3) If you create a Tag, then delete it, then create a new one with a different name, the old Tag will just come up instead of the new one.

Anyone else experiencing these bugs?

Hi, i want to report a terrible bug.

Today, Friday 19th of August, 2011, at aprox 18:50, this guy ( http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198004504804 ) wanted to trade me something for my pack Section 8: Prejudice + DLCS.
I placed my copy of Section 8: Prejudice and he placed 6 copies of Portal. Suddenly, the trade window showed me a message: "Trade complete", but i don't clicked on any box to accept...
As can i see, it was an exploited bug, because this guy, when the trade was completed without my aprobation, changed his name and his Steam ID and blocked me.

Now, i'm here, without my copy of Section 8: Prejudice and with 6 copies of Portal.

My Steam ID is: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198002769677 , i want my game back, check your system, i hate this beta, i lost my extra copy of Section 8: Prejudice because of you, and i dont want 6 copies of Portal.

Since the update a few days back now when I hover over achievements after selecting a game in my games list on the left the menu that pops up saying the achievement name and description is blank at first I thought this was an error on my part so tried restarting steam that didn't fix it so I tried re-installing steam and that didn't work so then I opted out the beta so it would go back to the normal steam client and it worked again so then I re-opted into the beta and it is no longer working again so I deduce this to be a bug with the current beta - Thanks for the beta and please try to fix this as this is an annoyance to me :)

Absolutely amazing system. I just claimed my Portal copy that came with Portal 2 in the duo pack.

The only thing that should be made more obvious, in my opinion, is that you can trade for nothing. eg. I was under impression I had to trade the copy of Portal for say a TF2 gun before I noticed the "I am ready to trade" checkbox.

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE BETA:
1) Bind Backspace to back arrow.
2) Bind Escape to "stop loading".
3) Add an option to insert /me when clicking the big button in a chat (call it "third person mode" or "insert action").

StanGe
08-20-2011, 04:46 AM
the new beta release looks good so far. but please remove the arrow next to the friends menu in the friends window. didn´t really fit in the steam design.

please take a look into the item popup in the chat window. the borders look quite ugly: http://www.abload.de/img/trade1uqg.png

one minor ui suggestion. add one or two blank lines from the top to the description in the tag window. will look slightly better. more similar to the games category window. i´ve marked the space that i mean in in the screenshot: http://www.abload.de/img/spaceju1e.png

and please take a look into the double klick issue for the overlay browser (doubleklick works like klick and hold the left mouse button).

Schwick
08-20-2011, 05:25 AM
It's getting better and better. Just a repost that these bugs are still there and also a few suggestions.

Few bugs:
The last made tag doesn't save the collapsed/un-collapsed state and resets each restart of Steam. This results in me constantly manaully opening the tag-group to see who's online.
Same thing as above for Groups. Not sure if bug or maybe a suggestion. I'll list it as a bug for now.
Steam seems to have a hit another memory leak. Small one, but it's there. My Steam goes from its initial 16MB usage to 120MB after a couple of hours playing a non-steam game (League of Legends).

Suggested improvements:
When dragging an item when linking, the focus of the chat-window is lost. It's kinda annoying. Not losing focus or finding a way to easier link without losing the chat-window focus would be better.
Have an option where you can edit your tags in terms of name. Currently you got to remove one, then remake it and retag. Would save time for an edit function.

Future suggestion:
Be able to custom name a friend. Sometimes I lose track how somebody is called with their bloody name changes.
Keep up the good work!

Hi, Maybe Somthing else reported yet because is very anoying but just in case I want to post it anyway.

When somebody of your friends list classified in a TAG removes you (or maybe blocks you) then you are not able to remove it from the tag or friends list and appears as "unknoun".

That product is designed for websites to let their users share hosted content over social networks in order to raise brand awareness.

Aside from Valve already doing this to some extent with Facebook and not particularly needing raised brand awareness, Steam Community is its own social network.

Finally, Steam requires and uses its own login system, logging in with Facebook/Twitter/Google/Windows Live/etc. is probably not feasible - even PS3 users need to create a Steam account rather than just signing in with their PSN identity, last time I checked.

Do not compare PS3 with social networking, please.
We will not comment much because people do not use PSN, Could be bad security?
Social networks go far beyond, sooner or later see Steam. Always better early.
But look at Sony's new PS VITA's gamescom, social whole.
O EA Origin. Social! or Google plus, and more ...
I do not want Steam, which is what I use, is left behind.
I use a lot of social networks, like most internet users.
Steam and put his whole Facebook connect, but very little ...
If you try with the company and can not, look for other methods, but steam connections required to social networks!

That is incorrect, considering 1) I already have that language content downloaded and 2) I highly doubt Portal 2 has over 10 GB of German content. Same with TF2 redownloading 9,7 GB of files. Changing the language is just one method of triggering the bug of redownloading entire games.

On the issue of restarting play when changing language - seems to be most properly developed games do not have this problem, but the games developers are not provided for localization in the normal way (ie, the removal of language resources into separate files) - reloaded when you change the language the client such Supremecommander 2

It would be nice if my TF2 backpack was sorted how it is in TF2 rather than the current oldest to newest format.

I dont much care for this search bar thing which doesnt work very well, i typed in the first few letters of an item and there where still other items with no relevance to the search being shown.

It would also be nice if I could choose which one of the items i would like to trade. As of now it takes the one from the very bottom of my backpack regardless of which one of that duplicate item i choose to trade which usually results in me trading my own personal items by accident.

08-21-2011, 09:11 PM
The backpack also has an order I don't understand, where I would prefer the order of my actual backpack.
On top of this, Steam trade needs to include additional TF2 item information.

For example, let's say I had two Bazaar Bargains. One of them is a numbered one that I crafted; the other is one that dropped into my backpack last night.

I decide to sell the dropped one, and initiate a Steam trade with someone. Because the item window does not display the items in backpack order, I have to search for the Bargains.

At this point, both show up, but it is impossible to tell them apart: both have the same quality and item details. The specific, numbered version doesn't show up as such. Let me reiterate: there is no way to tell them apart. This can make trading very specific items on Steam trade unnecessarily difficult and risky.

I just moved to a new apartment. I had set my Steam to offline mode even before I left, knowing that many users have issues with it. Offline mode worked great, but not after I had internet again. I had got internet set up working for a bit, but then went out again. I had already put Steam back into online mode and when I lost internet again, I wasn't able to do anything. All I got was a connection or network error. I know I didn't have internet, there's no need for that message. But, why can I use offline mode while I have internet, but not when I don't? This seems like the opposite of what it should be. And yes, I do have my username and password saved on this computer, as well as Steam automatically starting and logging in when Windows starts.

If one doesn't have internet, or loses connection unexpectedly, they aren't going to be able to set Steam to offline mode while it is connect to the internet. Offline mode works fine, as long as you set Steam to offline mode while online. But, if you lose your connection before you do so, or it happens unexpectedly, it doesn't do you any good and you are left without the ability to use the products you've paid for.

I'm well aware of the issues involving DRM and account verification, but users need to be fully aware of any stipulations involving using Steam's offline mode. This is why so many complain that it doesn't work. The fact is that it doesn't work unless you're connected to the internet, which completely defeats the purpose.

It's because Valve are using the VoIP API for notification sounds, which is bad. The reason sound doesn't return to its original volume when the notification disappears is because Windows isn't coded to handle these VoIP calls so quickly, due to the simple fact that there is no 1 second VoIP call.

So Windows fails to catch up when Steam says to turn the volume back up and thus it stays that way.

Trading unplayed games, in my case I bought the THQ Complete pack awhile back when it was on sale because I was interested in a few of the games. But I have several games I have never even downloaded or played but I was forced to redeem because I bought the package. What if because I have never downloaded the game or clocked any amount of time in it I could make it into a gift and trade it? It has never been played technically.

I found a nifty little bug while changing names. Click for the image below.

Also I like the new tab system we have on friends list, but can it stretch so it isn't ugly?

If it helps, that's the Finnish language.

A friend and I are trying to trade. I just bought the Terraria 4 pack and was going to trade one of the extra copies. It says in the trading menu under your inventory, TF2 backpack (26) and Steam Gifts (3). When I click steam gifts though, it says I currently have 0 items in my steam inventory. Help :[

Tooltip on items in chat changes size when still loading and you move the cursor around. (Also seems to download the info again and again rather than caching?)

Tooltip on items in chat dimmed when opening game overlay and someone has dropped it into a chat. Fixed when first clicking anywhere on chat window

Also reminding of possible performance problems when leaving chat open and a lot of images have been dropped over the last 12 hours or more, have also started to see areas of desktop that will not change (despite minimizing the chat) until I leave chatroom. Again, only after a lot of uptime and text/images passing through the various chats I have open

Suggestion/Idea: I've edited the default friends list a bit to further simplify it. I took the Friends Options that was at the top of the list and combined it w/ the Friends tab. I then used the users avatar (In this case, it was me) to take up the empty space on the right. Here is a photo of how it looks.

In my opinion, it has a much cleaner look and much less empty space.

Getting really annoyed with how slow it is to load my inventory in a trade, and how slow it is to load the images.

Currently waiting and still hasn't even shown me my stuff at all, 2 minutes or so.

Restart and its better

Connection issues play havoc with this thing..

Not sure if this qualifies for a bug report, but i noticed in the console that the error message below was spammed:

Haven't seen it before the beta update.

"Report a bug" directs me here? Fair enough.

A couple of games in my library just forgot their category. About half of them, actually, which is quite a lot. They all belonged to one of four or so categories, e.g. all the games filed as "Indie". I believe it happened after today's update, not sure though, must've been recently.

So now I have to reassign the categories, regarding which I have a suggestion: Make it less of a pain in the butt. Maybe add drag & drop or some other easier means of assigning a category to a lot of games.

I'd also prefer Tags over Categories, i.e. having the ability to set multiple categories/tags. For example shooter/todo/3rdpartydrm.

So long,
Mr. Wonko

It is gone from your account and in the inventory of the other one you traded with. He can redeem it to play himself or trade it to someone else.

Yes, as long as it stays in your inventory and you don't redeem it for yourself.

What restrictions are there on trading Steam Gifts?
Trading a Steam Gift is very similar to sending a gift to someone; just that once it is traded that user can then either trade it again, or open it for themselves. There are no restrictions on territory.

There is 1 thing that bothers me (actually 2nd after the forever empty Groups tab which steals my space ;]).

When I r-click Steam icon in my system tray, the pop-up menu won't close if I click somewhere outside it. I have to select something in that menu to get rid of it, even if I have some urgent actions waiting on my desktop.

Such behavior is kind of not quite appropriate for the context menus.
It should always close, when the user clicks somewhere outwards.

Thank you in advance.

Hmm, that doesn't happen on my end. Any click outside the menu closes it. What operating system are you on and does it still happen even after restarting Steam?

Oh, so you mean I can trade the game again? It can be infinitely traded until it's redeemed by someone?

Tonight's update doesn't require a new client version. You can find the new controls available on the Community. At last, you can set your bookpack privites.

8/23 Update
- Added inventory privacy controls to the Community profile settings page. You can also choose to display Steam Gifts with the rest of your inventory or keep them private (the default).

Well, yes. If you trade a game you can no longer trade it or redeem it but the person you traded it with can trade it to someone else or redeem it, and so on and so on.

The Pip-Boy I just traded for (at this url (http://steamcommunity.com/id/m2pt5/inventory/#440_2_438385139)) isn't showing properly in Steam friends chat windows. It's just showing the plain url, and sometimes the popup appears when mousing over it. Other items I've received recently still work fine.

8/23 Update
- Added inventory privacy controls to the Community profile settings page. Apparently these new settings only affect the inventory visibility on Steam Community. It is still possible to see the inventory content through the WebAPI.

I guess you're going to make this setting apply to the WebAPI item feeds (Portal 2 / TF2) in the future. If not, then honestly I don't see the point of these new privacy settings :|

Hello,
I suggest two improvements for steam trade
1) I propose to double check as an option for gmail meaning you receive an SMS containing a password which must be returned each time you connect to their Steam account.
2) When you click on the account name I would like to have an option next to what was purchased to print the invoice for the purchase games
thank you,
Sincerely,

Bug:
Steam fails to report download status at all (maybe doesn't even download?)
Wanted to download a media file today (Serious Sam 3 Chaos Trailer - 81059) which uses the new content format. In the Media tab Steam tells me "Downloading: 0%", Downloads tab tells me "Downloading" but no more information is given (no current download rate, no peak, no total download). In tray I only get the info "Steam - working".
I even checked if Steam is acutally downloading anything, yes it is, but I do not have any idea what.
Some extract from few logs that might help:

BUG

Just tried to trade games with somebody who has multiple Steam Gifts, but none will show up, where as all TF2 items do. Any fix or will you create one?


My Gift games shows on my inventory in my profile but once I want to trade them, they won't show up on my trading window.

I'm trading my gifts the old way now, with the checking rep, middlemen hussle that I hoped I got rid of with the steam beta trade.

Please fix, this is a serious bug.

Also, please allow the tf2 inventory to be sorted JUST like it is in game. Its a real pain in the... to look for an item there.
