Title: I'm not able to add people on steam
Post by: dark 5FVD on May 08, 2013, 05:46:39 PM
Hi guys


I have a litle problem with my steam namely that i can't add people.
So a friend of mine said that i needed to install a game from steam.
But i don't think this will work.
Does anybody know how i could solve this?


Please I really need your help on this one.

If I remember correctly, you need at least one game that has been paid for in order to add people. I was unable to add people until I was gifted a game, so you don't necessarily have to buy one yourself.

What Powy said is correct. In order to add people on steam, you must have one game from the steam store. If it is gifted, it counts as well.

I never bought or got anything gifted on Steam. Why is it working for me?

Demos and free to play games also count, iirc.

Well I have added free to play games too but the first thing I did when I joined Steam was add my nephew to play Call of Duty (which I activated on Steam didn't buy on Steam)

I'm not entirely sure if it works that way anymore, I mean a couple months ago when I only had TF2 I was unable to add people.

Depending on how long ago you first installed steam, it could just be the fact that you joined steam during a time when they were allowing people to add without games.

Do you play a game that requires steam?

Like I did, the latest Tomb Raider.

Skyrim needs Steam. I think Blind has Skyrim.

I registered for Steam a good while back though.

You activated it on steam, thus steam earned money on it ;) therefor you can add friends.
