(Patched - Looking for solution) How to Make Your Steam Aliases the Same
By Aevoa
A simple guide showing you how to have all previous username aliases display a single alias. It removes any old aliases from site while looking nice.
Note, the character in this guide no longer works as Valve has patched it. I will update the guide if I find another working character.
Our end result:

NOTE: You can also make your alias history show up as blank using the character in this guide.
Step 1
Start by heading over to this pastebin and copying the character: pastebin.com/P6KxEd9s

It might be invisible, so right click inside "RAW Paste Data", and click "Select All".

Right click inside "RAW Paste Data" again and click "Copy".

If you're having trouble copying it, click "get" for a download of the character.

Step 2
Now head over to the change profile name screen from your friends list window.

If you have the username you want already set up, simply paste the character from the pastebin behind your username. This will add a strange looking character to your name. Don't worry, it doesn't show up in alias history.

Now go ahead and hit save. Your chat username should look something like this:

Step 3
Your alias history now shows two identical usernames. Go back into the change profile name panel from your friends list and add a second pastebin character before your username.

Save it, and repeat this step by adding an additional pastebin character each time.
After you make a few username changes, Steam will prevent you from changing your username for a bit. The wait isn't very long, so don't worry.

After making ten unique changes using the pastebin character, your whole alias history will display the same username. Be sure to change your username back to the version without the pastebin characters when you're done!

Okay, Steam patched both the characters. I'll look for a new one and update the guide if I find one that works.
