Usually dies again after about 10 minutes for me :p after it comes back online from (ever more common) unannounced downtime.

Edit: They just announced it, AFTER its been happening. Great warning.........

It's even worse for Dungeon Defenders, because no steam connection means no connection to your account. It means I can't play it at all, and I get kicked out of anything I'm doing at the time.

i guess the servers are back online, i logged into my account again...

It goes back down for me anywhere from ten minutes to 3 hours after it comes back up. And it does that about 90% of the time. It's honestly getting absolutely ♥♥♥♥ing absurd.

We are performing maintenance on some Steam back end services this afternoon; you will see brief outages to chat, game lobbies, and the community web site. Content downloads and game play should not be affected.
Really, at this point you might as well not even post about maintenance cause Steam is already back up!

Steam hasn't been down for three hours. If you've not been able to log on, you're experiencing a local issue, or a connectivity issue.

I love Steam, but this is getting old.

In the middle of the game and then suddenly, "lost connection to Steam". Open browser, Google loads. Guess internet is still up.

Stumble around to find the link for the Steam Forums. Go to page 200+ of some sticky post to discover a post indicating Steam is updating their servers.

Hey Steam, you update your store page everyday at 10am PST. If you are planning on a server update later in the day, why not post it there????????

10 seconds or 10 hours, is it hard to make an announcement that is more efficient at getting to your user base?

It only takes 1 second for your stats in black ops to get reset or for other games to not save your game progress.

I totally agree with the OP, Steam tells me when a friend has come on-line or started a game or that the tf2 blog has been updated but Steam won't tell me the most important thing and that is that it is going down.

I wouldn't be against it, it would be a nice feature, but I would appreciate it if people didn't blow the lack of it out of proportions. People act like it's something totally mandatory that they can't live without, but there are ways around not having it.

BubbaQuest

Wow. I post a question asking why the Steam client can't list scheduled downtime on its homepage and the thread gets killed and redirected to this worthless thread.

I'm really having doubts about buying games through Steam now. This is the third time so far this year I've been booted out of a game while playing because Steam went down.

I guess from all the "friendly" responses, I'm supposed to check the forums every hour to double check that I might be able to play a game I already purchased.

Can you imagine if an ISP, phone, or cable company made you check the forums everyday to make sure your service was going to be available?

Lol. Maybe when they actually update it before Steam actually does down. They should also do so more than 10 minutes in advance. The last few times they've announced it, they announced it no more than 12 minutes in advance or so. Can't expect us all to keep checking our email every two freaking minutes to be sure that there's scheduled maintenance.

I do find it odd that Steam is like the only service I know of with these downtimes and games with weird networking.

I wish they would find better hours of the day if they must do this. It's after 6pm EST here and after 3pm PST. Couldn't they aim for the middle of the night when everyone is mostly asleep like other networks with downtime do?

Asia, Europe, y'know, the whole Eastern Hemisphere.

And again, not everyone is having any problems. If it was a global Steam problem, everyone would be having issues, not just a few people. Only a few folks have stated they're having problems. Whenever it's widespread, this thread is inundated with people complaining.

I apologize for the short notice.
I have to take issue with this. The way you guys casually throw this around then do the exact same thing over and over again makes it absolutely meaningless. An apology for something is not a get out of jail free card. You're meant to take action for whatever you're apologizing for and make it not happen again. And apology for something should actually mean something.

Valve is ahead of the curve on so many things but when it comes to maintenance they just cant get it right, give us 30 minutes warning, in a little pop up isn't asking too much.

Im in UK.
I have been experiencing disconnection issues with steam for days now.
Its not just me,my friends and family are experiencing the same as well.

Its plainly obvious theres something not quite right and its not just a quick 5 mins downtime,its persistant disconection without warning.

Is this planned downtime that im not aware of?
Or are there issues that we should be made aware of?

If so then i think its only right we get a small little incy wincy email/msg just to say sorry,or inform us of problem,its just generally polite and what a customer expects.

Doesnt take 2 mins to do either.

It does indeed! More so when I'm half an hour or more into an Exterminatus match and all that xp goes down the toilet.

An explanation from Valve would be nice but lets face it, they're the strong silent type and it's not gonna happen. It'll magically repair itself and we'll all be happy Ultramarines again.

I'm glad I never bought any multiplayer DLC for my games. I can't seem to ever get into a multiplayer match with Steam servers always shutting down like this.

I'd probably be better off just getting single player games from now on.

My guess is, someone is working on it. Because if everyone is seeing what I'm seeing, Valve is making zero dollars right now.

Would be interesting to see what kind of compensation they owe to the developers whose games they aren't selling right now (while 5M ppl are online, some of which are no doubt attempting to purchase something, like me).
