Originally posted by mrmike_49:you people must be new to Steam - I am talking about the OLD game forums page http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/ which is slowly becoming obsolete because Steam does NOT put new games in to it. Steam should keep that page, and keep it updated. It is much easier to use to find a forum for any particular game, and also allows you to see a listing of all games with forums on Steam (well it did, now it doesn't include newer games).
Originally posted by mrmike_49:Yes, I know you can find a link to the forum if you go to a games page in the Store, but let's compare steps: New way : 1) open bookmark to Steam main page 2) select Community forums from drop down menu, 3) select game forums tab, 4) type in game name to search for your game. Alternate new method: 1) open bookmark to Steam main page 2) type game name in search bar 3) go to game page, 4) link to forum
Old Way : 1) open bookmark to Game Forums page, 2) page down to find your game forum
Plus having a listing of all game forums active, the old way is better, the new way sucks

Originally posted by Spawn of Totoro:Valve is going to shut down those forums when they create a diffrent wat fo trading to replace the old trade forums. There is no reaso for them to add anything since they want to get rid of it.
Originally posted by Spawn of Totoro:You got that very wrong.
Originally posted by Spawn of Totoro: The old forums were breaking. Especialy the Trade forum as it didn't scale well with all the trades that started happenign on them.
They didn't allow for sub forums in the game's fourm as well.
It also relies on another company for updates. The new game forums are more under Valve's control. They can change what they want as they want. .
