Steam names

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I continually have people telling me that they can't add me in steam. I have no idea what name I am supposed to give them. Apparently there is two. One for the account and one as a nick name that you can change all the time. Which one do you give to get someone to add you to steam?

Do you have a community link set up in your profile? And is your profile private or public? As it needs to be public to add. Or they can click recent games and pick you out of there also. If you don't have a community link do so like this.

* Friends link, click community home
* Edit my profile
* Custom URL, add your name to the end.
* Give them that url to add you.

Oh I have a custom URL but I have to give the entire URL? I was under the impression I can just give them the name.

You need the full link with the name and that will link them to you profile page. And then they can click add you as a friend on your page.

If you have steam you mind trying to add me with the name in my sig? You can delete me right after. I just want to see if this name works and it is just a few of my friends that are noobs, some of them couldn't find an add button if it was right in front of them.

I added just your steam name under your sig, "Whocares9". And you added fine for me that way. But it changed to "HybridEnergy" after that for the name. But it does work, so it maybe just a issue with your friends then.
