Happened a lot. I just have to delete people who haven't been online for 30 days usually.

Although the new Steam level thing supposedly gives you an expanded list as you level up. And of course they gave you 50 more for linking with Facebook a couple summers back.

Dang, what's the limit? I'm at 193, so if it's 200, I'm going to have to do some snippy snip.

I believe it is 250.

Phew!

It's 300. At least that's what's showing for me.

I'm at 400 now. Level 20, with (fake) Facebook integration.

So yay me, I guess?

Edit: You get an additional 50 by linking with your (a) Facebook account, and 5 for every level you gain with the new badge system.

Well, now you're just shoving your popularity at me.

Also, you can see your current limit by visiting the friends management page. Although I believe that might only be in the beta right now.

There was already a pretty nutty sale on Civ V. Last year did not entrall me so much. I might nab Borderlands 2 if it goes sub 5 bucks.

I got suckered in to Borderlands 1 with all the DLC a couple years ago, kind of a waste as I never got any desire to play the DLC.

Please feel free to friend me if you haven't. Just throwing that out there.

Hmm, something must be fishy then, my steam profile only shows 105 friends :?.

ditto, see my sig for steam details.
I love you all. even the coffee grinders, when you get me coffee.

Like many others, my main target would be Prison Architect but I don't see it discounting enough. I will probably jump on Pathologic on GOG before that sale ends, though.

I went ahead and loaded up ye olde Steam Wallet with some fun money.

Thanks a bunch, FeralMonkey!!

Sons of bitches...don't delete me off your steam list! I'm not sure how long steam shows me offline, but I moved from UT to TN and I don't have my pc with me just yet. :p

If you're that worried about getting the boot from some lists sign in on the mobile app

With the new steam leveling, at level 13, I unlocked 5 more slots. I've got 98/365. Mostly because I was getting bugged by the just barely adequate friends grouping as I kept having to hunt for specific people. I've since grouped at least some up right.

I like the mayhem before the steam sale. It's like this giant ball of potential energy ready to erupt into a giant explosion of gaming goodness.

I don't and won't have a FB account, but I sure could use 50 more friend slots. Is there a workaround aside from making a throwaway FB account? Not sure what the "fake" integration Hyetal mentioned is.

That's what I meant by fake. I don't use Facebook, either.

I have a real pre-sale gift for anyone who wants it... It involves Ponies and Unicorns and Secrets. One of the secrets is that the ponycorn is carrying a second gift:

The sale hasn't officially started, but I've given away some Secret of the Magic Crystals!

Yea! I'm a lucky recipient!!

Of a horse sim?

Who knew that my recent torrid love affair with janky Eastern-European vehicle sims would lead to this.

I guess it's true what they say about gateway drugs.

Thanks a bunch, Furtivespy!

My second favorite part of Steam sales is how my friends list expands with GWJ people.

Thanks to omnipherous for Brink complete, and thanks to Dr Awkward for Dungeonland. Time to get the party started!

We're starting with ponyenining again?

Which reminds me: for the sale season, I've changed my profile visibility from Friends of Friends to Users Only, and will accept friend requests from pretty much anyone who is in the GWJ Steam Group.

I know technically the sale hasn't started but anyone play Joe Danger or Joe Danger 2? I recall them looking fun and the 2 pack is $15 on Steam right now. I realize it might be a bad idea to buy at this point but not sure with them being released today that it will get any cheaper.

This.

If the sale does start this Thursday, it means I will be spending the majority of the sale in FL helping my mother-in-law paint her house. I'll be sure to sneak away around 1 EDT everyday, though.

I played the first Joe Danger on PS3 and it was freakin' awesome.

Kind of like an Excite Bike puzzle/platformer with fantastic charm and personality.

Best Nintendo game not made by Nintendo in ages.
