Yes, thank you! The clutter has been so annoying and this is a very welcome change.

Amazing! Great change. Thank you Valve.
im not a developer but thanks for this change, the promotion of discounts in store capsules has been extremely annoying especially considering the discount is already displayed below the capsule.

also it's funny that valve is now reusing the fake summer sale game artwork for steamworks documentation purposes

"steam festival fest" has a nice ring to it
Thanks for these changes!

Personally, I don't mind (actually quite like?) the "Steam Festival Fest" text, especially for smaller focused sales. Some sales use the store page banner to promote the sale but I'm sure that it isn't all of them as it's optional. That makes it harder to find other games in the same focused sale.
If you don't want to allow this visual element on capsules (understandable, it's a visual mess), could you provide a way to show that a specific game is a part of a sale page? An icon before the ds_options dropdown on capsules leading to the sale page (or a dropdown with sale pages if multiple) would be good for finding these sale pages.

If there is dedicated space for press reviews and awards can the users get an option to hide them? I do not care about reviews, scores and awards from the so called press or bloggers or streamers, it's a waste of time and a cognitive burden to scroll past this crap every time. I want to go from the game description straight to user reviews.

I liked the updated headers for discounts and updates, but I understand the desire for purity. Thanks for the examples.

This is a fantastic change.

Little details like this that show a concern for clarity and consistency make a huge difference.
