Can't invite friends to chat rooms

As recently as three days ago, I tried inviting three friends to a chatroom, and it worked perfectly. However, I was going through some lag spikes in-game (Super Monday Night Combat), and I eventually tried to restart my computer.

When it booted back up, the option to invite people to chats was grayed out and when others invited me to chat, I saw a popup indicated as such, but I wouldn't actually JOIN any chats.

I can still chat 1-on-1 just fine.

Any idea what the problem is?

(I am a paying Steam user)

What did this message say exactly?

The pop-up?

"____ has invited you to a chat. Shift + Tab to see more"

Shift+tab just revealed the normal steam chats I had up with individual friends.

If I recall correctly, after using Shift + Tab you'll see a dialog window in the overlay that tells you that you've been invited to a group chat. My guess is you didn't see it and while this message was active you couldn't invite anyone.

Could you try again (invite people to a chatroom) while you're not playing any game?

Does not work.

This has been persistent after numerous times exiting Steam altogether. I cannot invite anyone to a chat, whether I'm in or out of a game.

You could try to contact Steam Support and ask them whether any restrictions have been applied to your account.
