But when steam get downtime it affects the community aswell so how we will be able to talk here when downtime occur?

That is a very good point...

Yeah, this thread seems quite pointless since Discussions will go down during Steam downtime.

Sometimes Steam Friends goes down but the community website stays up.
Sometimes the Store goes down but the community website stays up.
Sometimes the Workshop goes down but the community website stays up.

It's not a fail, nor is it pointless. It's just giving us a single thread to use, like the one the "other" Steam Forums have.

But the old forums never go down, so I see no reason to not continue using them.

Yes they do. They used to go down quite a lot, actually. :P

Well, they're up when it counts. I've never seen them down during Steam downtime, whereas the Community site is almost always down.

You have a funny definition of "Almost always" if this website is "Almost always down". I seem to remember MikeB giving Steam Community website a 99.something% uptime for 2011.

Well, Steam just went down...
And the Discussions are still up, so... I guess I was right!

Went down as I was doing the last quest in Borderlands 2 with a friend. Very annoying.

Belive me you're not.

Whether or not you can post in it while the servers are down, I think the best thing this will do is get rid of all the "steam servers are down" threads that clog the forums every time after it crashes.
