Steam Direct is a mess.
I hope they understand the flaws here.
And improve it by conceptualizing some ideas from Steam Greenlight !

Okay so... Steam Direct. Is it anything like Greenlight? Is there going to be a page for it? Or do people just pay $100 to get the ball rolling on Steam?

Greenlight was amazing because it showed what the masses were interested in, and what kind of fun games people were coming up with.

What does "Steam Direct" do for the community? Nothing? We don't get to browse fun game concepts? How exactly do games get on Steam? Developers pay money and then they get their stuff on Steam? I'm highly confused.

I miss Greenlight already. Steam Direct seems lame.

Demeris, Steam Direct has been available for 3 days. The fee is $100 per game. http://steamcommunity.com/gid/103582791457287600/announcements/detail/1328973169870947116

I fully understand that there should be a better vetting process(recent explosion of clones, card games, and visual novels). I'm all for paperwork, tax info and the like. The fee is concerning however. For one the only way I could see the F2P market staying open is ALL future games in it would be P2W(sickening thought). Further a high fee like $5000 would all but make the indie section into a ghost town. I'm developing a game of my own and I'd be hard pressed to cough up that kinda money for the hope that it would be popular enough to make it back. Heck I'd be hard pressed to come up with $1000 because I'm not part of a small time studio. It's just me making ends meet with a modest income job.

Okay looks like the tax approval went through. Gonna take the next steps tonight.

How do I reach live support? I am going through the new system. I paid $100, and now it is stuck on the tax approval part. How long should I expect to wait? It has been 6 hours.
