Steam Community Discussions Rules and Guidelines

Yep. Shock horror, we do have actually some of these and you can find them here:

Discussions Rules and Guidelines

As you got this far it is probably safe of us to assume you haven't forgotten how to click links so you have no excuses.

Keeping these in mind when posting will hopefully spare you from the attentions of your Moderator friends.

(Face it guys, I don't expect you be angels, but there's a limit. I'm trying to be pretty laid back here. Let's try to keep it that way eh?)

There is also one other request we make in the ol' TF2 forums and that is:

Don't touch the poop!

If you see a crappy post, please don't reply. Just report the post and move on. Leave it alone so it can die like the rest of them.

Steam Community 101 Guide

There's also the AWESOME Steam Community 101 guide put together by many community members including some of us Moderators. I encourage you to read it as you can learn a heap about the features on the Steam community.

(It's also available in Russian, French and Turkish)

Forum Feedback

At great risk to his sanity a Moderator Better|Off|Dead operates a general forum feedback group for topics that don't belong anywhere else. Due to his blazing popularity, Better|Off|Dead cannot accept 'friend' requests so this is the most reliable way to contact him:

B|O|D's Karaoke and Burger Bar

Public Service Announcments
