Almost 3500 comments and you have done nothing to solve any issues concerning cross country gifting. I wanted to buy my friends golf with friends two days ago and i couldnt because of cross country restrictions. The price difference was literally 70 cents but i couldnt gift it. Thats not a big difference in price. 70 cents cant even buy me a a coffee so why would i care if im paying that extra for a game. I would like to continue being santa please. Let us give gifts this Christmas please.

Go fuck yourself Steam, this is the most bullshit move you ever pulled. Now I can't buy gifts to my friends in Japan because of this fucking shit.

Please bring back Gift to Inventory!
I wanted to buy a game on sale to give to my friend that I'll be with on Christmas, but I don't want to decide in advance the time for delivery (this game gift must not be seen before physical gifts and I don't know when we'll be opening gifts). I could do this easily by sending the gift from inventory with the steam app on my phone at just the right time during gifting, but now I will have to wait and buy the game on Christmas day and send it then, if it is on sale.

So - I posted this to another thread - I guess Ill repost here as it seems more on target. I feel like Steam you could maybe address some of my desires/conscerns listed below and still address what you view as abuses? Like for instance how about a window of time instead of one exact fixed time to deliver a gift? Say there is a default of xmas 8:am but I can go in ad mod that +- 5 days or something on the fly? Im not sure about the non steam account thing - couldnt we assign it to a specific email account - like I know my wife's email account, but she doesnt have a steam account yet - so I buy a gift assigned to that specific email account and then come xmas morning she opens the paper gift from me - we then set up her account and then she gets the 'gift' ? my original posting below :

this is BAD because groups/communities cannot hold promotional priced games in their inventories to give them as a gift for special occasions like Christmas.

I think the number of Comments or Pages is related to the Upvote.
So the more we talk about this the more Weigh the change they made have...
They did not take in to account the change can be for the worse!
