STEAM Questions.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am kind of new to steam and had a couple of questions. I am at work right now and am unable to get into the Steam forum to ask, butyou all seem very helpful here and figured I would try it out.

First question:
If I delete someone off my 'Friends' list, will that take me off of thiers? I would like to do this with one person. I don't just want to take them off my list and still be on their list so they know I am on, but I don't know if they are.

I am guessing if I do delete them and it does take me off their list, I will need to only change my Profile name so they won't be able to find me again right?



Second Question:
Since my Steam Account is tied into my Account Name and the games are purchased under my Account Name, not my Profile Name, is it possible to make a Second Profile under the same Account Name?

This would still make it that the game purchased can only be used under one account, but lets multiple people in that one household use it (still only one at a time since the Account can only be logged in to once a time)

I am sure this would come in handy for Parents that play games or have more then one kid that plays games. It would allow a kid to log into a game with thier own Profile and not have the need for the father to pay for a new game. (that would be like having to buy 2 Xbox Games or 2 PS3 Games if you have 2 kids who both want to play)

Thanks in advance.

For the first question, I would have thought that you would be removed from their friends list if you delete them from yours. To add someone as a friend, though, you need the account name, not profile name, so they would still be able to find and add you again unless you created a whole new account. You could just decline their friend request though.

You can't make more than one profile under one account, but what you could do is just change your Steam name every time it is someone else logged in. It would be annoying, but it would pretty much solve your problem.

Yes, if you removed someone off of your friends list they also get removed off of your friends list, and they'll have to add you back to communicate with you again.

And no, you can only make one steam profile on your account.

I swear Boxxy is invading everyone's avatar more than usual at the moment.

Never heard of Boxxy until now. Still don't know the whole story of her other than some like her - some don't.

So is having her in an Avatar 'Pro Boxxy' or not to the point of "in your face"?
