Steam Tips
Disable the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ word filter
Under Community Content Preferences, add this to Never filter these words:

User-generated content privacy warning
Any content, even with visibility not set to public, is scanned by Google and Amazon image analysis services. It is evident by image blur that may appear on such submissions.

Cannot join game group chats
Follow the game first. Following actually adds you to the Official Group of the game, which is now the Community Hub. If you are not a member, you cannot join the chat.

Full width artwork
At some point, Featured Artwork Showcase was added. Notice Featured, it is different from the original Artwork Showcase in that it only displays one Artwork. However, it is still best to use horizontal images as gaps are otherwise still present. But please, don't do this.

Steam "God Mode"
Steam Support contains many features to help solve your issue as well as many other pages you may find useful. In particular, Data Related to Your Steam Account (under Steam Support > My Account) links to a large selection of pages.

Table noborder=1 and equalcells=1 parameters not working
Despite being included in formatting help for Guides, these parameters are not available to be used in Guides. However, it is evident that News and Support articles use them. It is possible that a future Community revamp brings this feature back. Read more

WTF is error X? has a documented list of error codes as well as the official names.

Images gone, reupload results in file upload error 29
If you find that you cannot reupload existing images (notably to guides), using ImageMagick, use this command to bulk modify the images:
for image in ./*.png; do convert $image -set keywords '' $image; done

Host block list for Steam games
Note: Some games or components may stop working.

Here you will find a very comprehensive list. Also check out the group itself for some more info and relevant curator reviews.

Workshop pages broken if YouTube is unreachable
Use this bookmarklet:

Use Offline Mode automatically
Make sure the account password is saved. Edit <steam-dir> > config > loginusers.vdf and under the desired account, set "WantsOfflineMode" and "SkipOfflineModeWarning" to "1".

Selection/mouse click freezes on Linux client
Press shift once. It should unfreeze and be usable as normal.

Combo boxes break on Linux client with Qtile
Use left+right click together a couple of times.

Use Steam Overlay without launching through Steam (Linux)
32-bit: LD_PRELOAD="<steam-dir>/ubuntu12_32/$LD_PRELOAD"
64-bit: LD_PRELOAD="<steam-dir>/ubuntu12_64/$LD_PRELOAD"

Note about default avatars
Every single profile without an avatar set uses this default "?" avatar to the point it is always the same URL. Any attempts to upload that image will produce a different result since the "full" version served for profiles is not original, but a compressed variant, thus using a different file hash which determines the location.

Game Tips
Surfing is just air strafing. Here's why
Quake engine has ground and air acceleration, the main difference being the absence of friction specific to air movement. Strafing explanation
Touching steep surfaces (ex. surf ramps) is defined as air movement, hence the speed, and the player sticks to a ramp simply by moving towards it.
Air acceleration, among other things, works per-tick, which is why the tickrate has a great impact.

Relevant Quake code:
SV_Accelerate(), SV_AirAccelerate(), and PM_CatagorizePosition() in pmove.c []

Various games (Linux/Proton) - key under escape not opening console
Method 1:
Configure your desktop environment or window manager to switch layouts on the fly. Along with your preferred layout, include US, and switch to it when you need to open the console.

Method 2:
Add this to your profile, .xinitrc or other preferred script:
setxkbmap -layout us,<layout> -option grp:alt_caps_toggle
— replacing <layout> with the desired layout. US must be the first in the list, layouts are toggled with Alt+Caps Lock ( more combinations []). With this applied, console can be opened with either layout applied.

Source Engine - creating and enabling sprays
Head on over to where you will find my instance of Mishcatt/VTF-Editor along with additional help.

Source Engine (Linux) - half sensitivity, windowed mode upon switching
Add this to the start of your launch options (omit %command% if already present or the game is launched directly):
LD_PRELOAD="/usr/\$LIB/$LD_PRELOAD" %command%

Grand Theft Auto V - remove loading screen ads
Note: This works only for Story Mode and requires OpenIV.

For each revision of update.rpf (preferably as a copy within \mods), delete this file:
update > update.rpf > x64 > data > cdimages > scaleform_frontend.rpf > gtav_online.gfx
