So...did Greenlight turn red for the month?
It's been almost a full month since the last series of games were announced to be Greenlit. Are they not announcing Greenlit games anymore? Or did they take a month hiatus?

Or are they just stealth Greenlighting from now on? I ask this particular question because Five Nights at Freddy's was on Greenlight and then one day it was just on Steam itself.

the other problem is: the last batch was not from the top50 (at leat not all)... so the votes arent matter at all?

I know some of the scum handing out keys for votes didn't get through. Maybe they had to fill those gaps?

You mean that despite people voting for Grass simulator, Valve decided not to let it through?

Yes, they do seem to have slowed down their acceptance from 75 titles every two weeks (which they did for a good few months)... to 50 once a month(?) - still has yet to really be determined. They also didn't take a lot of games from the top 100 list - as noted by above.

Shock horror, things return to normal!
A good few months being 3 and a half. and why is it suddenly news that the top games don't always get through?

Public memory is short. Patterns are easier to remember then actual history.

Missconception about how Greenlight works. Some think they select the titles rather than helping Valve by showing which titles should be worth takeing a closer look at.

I was honestly surprised that those devs bribing people with free games didn't appear on the last greenlit list. All should have easily made it - there were thousands of sheep willing to throw a 'Yes' at them for the chance of something for nothing. Maybe Valve will change it's mind and they'll all come flooding through in the next list? I don't know.

I do know that if Valve showed everyone that it worked, that you can simply circumvent the whole Greenlight process, then those self-interested sheep are going to be drowning in free games.

So you're saying that it's somehow noble not to simply buy a game that legitimately gets through Greenlight but instead help it cheat it's way through just so you can get a free game?

never said I would not buy a game that got legitimately through greenlight, dont twist my words
Weird. I thought that's what we were doing - twisting words. I clearly state that I have a problem with the thousands of people that wouldn't normally have voted for a game doing so just because they're being bribed with a free game and you ignore my obvious meaning and twist it to say I'm calling people who like a game selfish sheep. I simply re-stated my meaning.

It is funny. Whenever anyone points out a dislike for devs cheating Greenlight by offering bribes, theres always those quick to say "Yeah, but... but... look at this other issue! Isn't it worse?!". They seem to think you're not allowed (or capable) of being unimpressed with either situation. That you have to be fine with cheating just because of some other (apparently 'real') problem.

As a dev about to put his game on Greenlight it would be great to get some clarification from Steam on this. Maybe they are about to announce that new system that would replace Greenlight that was mentioned a few months ago?

I would assume they make an announcement before they start doing changes as a result of them moveing onto a new system.

nobody knows really

I heard it was announced in january or such but there hasn't been a single word of a change and I am curious about what is going on.

Though I must be the odd one out as I don't notice much in the way of bribery for votes. It reeks of a smoke screen from something else.

Tatsuya uses the term "white knight" a bit peculiar. He uses it to designate a form of "hater" or "flamer".
We had a discussion about this earlier where he suddenly brought up and then clarified white knights to be something like hostile for no reason, and then some other people responded by how they define white knights.
Usually people think of users rushing to the defense of something (mostly females, but any cause will do) and since Tatsuya is kind of displaying that behaviour we decided he was a white knight...

I don't think he agrees :p
