Is anyone elses steam bugged?
Like I see the "green" indicating something is new but I can't click it. I have to load up the steam website to get to them?

Also amusing the "e-mails" are sent in the language of the buyer. So at first I thought I got weird spam e-mails because none of it was readable.

Like if it is a standard e-mail that is being sent to someone in the US - why not send it in English?

Whole lot of rambling to say I received my gifts and they are wonderful. All things I wasn't quite ready to pull the trigger on so having them as a gift makes them perfect.

edit: May have been because steam did a pop up saying I got the games but it didn't "pop up". So it was just sitting in my taskbar unnoticed.

I agree that Steam seems to be more picky than usual this year. Maybe Gabe spending so much time in New Zealand has brought some upside downs to Steam...

*ba dum tss*

Anyway, I'm glad you recieved your gifts and that you like them.

Received my gifts, thank you so much for scratching my RPG itch with your great choices! :)



Received mine as well. Very generous Santa.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Well I had a ton of problems sending gifts to my Tiny Tim due to stupid regional differences on steam. And on GoG... Well since I have yet to buy anything, it says I need to buy something and then wait 3 months before I can use the gifting.

But I managed to get him something in the end!

*sigh*

I don't know if something has changed at Steam, but I don't remember so many problems with the gift in the previous years.

At least you managed it, and I'm sure your Tiny Tim will appreciate them.

I guess I kind of gave away my secret Santa as well. But in case people didn't notice, my extremely generous Santa gave me a ton of stuff. Way too generous!

It's officially been paid forward to my Tiny Tim. Hope you enjoy! And they probably don't know who I am because my board name is not the same as my Steam name.

Thank you.

And given that your Steam ID is in the front page, Ed, you're not so anonymous .

Oh shit, you're right, haha. By the way my name isn't Ed. Just an inside joke with my real life friends.

My Secret Santa definitely went above and beyond! Whoever gets them next year is in for a real treat!



I also want to thank my generous Santa!



Sorry, I was out all day and only came back now. Got my gifts this morning. So many of them, it makes me feel bad that I couldn't gift my tiny Tim more than I did this year.

So, thanks a lot my Secret Santa!

I'm glad that you like your presents but please keep in mind that this is not a competition. You've given what you could, and that's more than enough.

Besides, your Tiny Tim also loved his presents.
