    Just to let everyone know that the Steam Community is now live. Maybe we should setup an AVF Steam Community - anyone interested?

    I noticed it asked me to sign up yesterday. I haven't made an account on it yet but hopefully have the same nickname - be interested in grouping up with fellow AVFers :).

    Valve are taking on Windows/Xbox Live - Steam Community allows you to create an online persona, benefit from in game Steam wide comms and, in time, will include 'achievements' etc. Quite a good idea in theory - lets see how it works out.

    Maybe we could have a steam name thing on here like we can in the Xbox 360 gamertag section.

    It looks like someone already started an AVF group here. Or just search for AV Forums (AVF).

    There used to be a sticky that everyone posted their steam in game name and account name but it seems to have vanished

    Does anyone who the Administrator (lockload) is for the AVF group? I tried searching the members here with no luck.

    It's pretty pointless having an Administrator unless we can organise some events etc. Does anyone know how to contact him through Steam?

    AFAIK you can send him a message when he is online but there is no offline/email type comms. It's early days and he might just be on holiday or something - lets see if he makes contact soon. If not I'm sure we can start an AVF Elite group or similiar.

    Yep, that's what I was thinking too. Let's see if he does come back soon, otherwise we'll have to create our own group methinks.

    Just added myself.

    I tend to flit between gaming platforms quite sporadically, but hoping either TF2 or Crysis beta will let me on before the end of the night !!

    Can someone tell me, when the Steam client marks you as being 'online'? The reason I ask is that I had a few messages when I was away from the desk and by the time I came back the other side was offline? :confused:

    Sorry homesy68 and Razor!

    Hello everyone.
    My Steam ID is:
    _____xTc_____

    That is with 5 underscores on each side. I am up for Team Fortress, DOD:S, CS:S, HL multiplayer nearly everyday.:smashin:

    Any of you guys want a free digital copy of Half Life 2? As I bought the orange box and if you already own the game, Steam give you a code so that a friend could have the copy that comes with the orange box.

    Naqv,

    Add your name to this thread - that way we have a complete list of AV Forum members.

    Just work your way down the list and add all as Friends :thumbsup:

    There are quiet a few of us on the AVF Steam list now. It would be good if we could get the voice chat sorted and a few games arranged. Then go out as a team and play few games of TF2. I love these sort of games but they are best when you have a team to play with and everyone can communicate.

    I'd better get that wireless dongle sorted then! :)

    I do agree though, we have to get some community games together once the Orange Box.
