BTW, is this the reason why I cant reset my PW?

Changed it about two days ago and totally forgot about it until I logged off >.<
Cant change it back at the moment, even though I'm sure everything is correct!

Hi I am playing a game called Metro 2033. It is a PC game.

I was working on an steam achievement to "use all guns", can I get steam achievements when there is downtime?

No, achievements can be ...well, achieved only when not in offline mode (read: you must be online).

OK so servers go down, but why the fk can't Steam admit there is a problem and put it on a status webpage so all their users know wtf is going on????

Malaysia, a country just beside Singapore, started to show problem 5hours pior to this message & still down.

Most of the time when I try to log in my account steam just disappear from view after I enter my username & password. Sometimes (1 out of 4) it manage to log in to steam user interface but showed a "no connection" at the center bottom of the window.

Most game can play but Teamfortress 2 warn me of steamcloud problems that might wipe out my saves. And of course no friend lists.

I have no idea how steam's authentication and account data retrieval works, but if your account data were to be stored on two seperate servers, and one of those servers was online, while the other wasn't, that would explain it. I'm pretty sure the regional stuff is only for downloads/steamcloud, and not for your account/friends network stuff.

Well it is the problem with the different times around the world.
Because the planned downtime is shown as 17:00 PST, but when the servers DID go down it was 02:10 o'clock here in the Netherlands, so please notice the many differences, and mishaps of that.

Steam isn't down right now, and hasn't been down all day. If you're having troubles, then it's either on your end or between you and Steam. One easy way to verify this is to examine the number of connected users at the stats site (http://store.steampowered.com/stats/). At the moment, more than 2.8 million people are connected. If Steam were down, that number would be lower.

Just for the sake of saying it, Steam hasn't been down for me in a long, long time. I actually can't even remember the last time it happened. Couple of years ago at least. The forums are a different story though and for a couple months recently it was pretty bad.
What do you guys mean by down anyway? You mean you can't load the Steam client and play your games except in offline mode?
Or do you mean that the chat and all that other friends stuff isn't working?
I don't use any of that, so maybe that's why I never see it down.

Disconnected: This steam account does not own this game. Please login to the correct steam account.

Obviously, the steam credentials server is not serving properly. Oddly enough, I can start my own listenserver and play just fine.

Is there any plan to fix this soon? Surely I'm not the only one having this issue?

Is there a problem with Steam now? I am in Poland and I get "could not connect to steam network" - my friend has the same problem (different ISP) so it is not just me. I cannot do anything because after displaying "could not connect to steam network", Steam client quits, co I can't even switch to offline mode, which makes this mode pointless since it is unusable at the moment when it would be most useful.
