Usually I do find these worthwhile, however sometime a whole bunch of them come at once and flood the What's new page.

Is it possible to filter out some of them, (like the DLC ones), or limit it to so many per day?

Not really its a feed, so when there is an entry it posts.

We might be able to hide them from the whats new page entirely but then you wouldn't notice without hunting them down yourself.

It makes finding the one or two actual posts difficult :)
But on the other hand I find some of them interesting and might otherwise miss the news.......


So conflicted right now :(

Instead of being a dick about it and complaining to admins, why not PM Steam Update News and ask him to stop making so many posts?

Thanks....Ive stopped browsing this forum as much as I used too, the lack of people posting is really highlighted by my news feed being filled with steam spam like that pic posted by monkey :P Sad!

No one uses the what's new page.

Also I don't think it's an issue with steam news posting too much, rather that users don't post enough so it seems like a lot.

I think I counted something like 4 new posts in total on Wednesday.

I too added the steam user to ignore a long time ago and it never worked, but today I click the 'what's new' button and am not spammed for a change...is it true, is it finally gone?


E: no, it's not true, there's just only 1 steam update for a change
