    Hello Valvetime community!

    I made a site that makes it easier for people to find Steam users to play with : If you have trouble finding new Steam friends due to life commitments, your current friends moving on from gaming, you're new to Steam, or you just simply want to find someone, I think this site might help you find some. Steam Friends was made with one idea in mind: reduce randomness of playing with strangers and find peers who are similar to you.

    I thought about adding a few more features, but before that I would like the community's feedback on the site's interface / usability. If you like this idea, feel free to log in, setup a profile, and let others know about this site. Updates will be posted either on Valvetime or the site's steam group: Thanks for checking out Steam Friends, and happy holiday! I'll answer any questions you may have in this thread.

    Finding a user on Steam Friends goes something like this:

    * sign in through steam
    * as a first time user, you'll be prompted to fill in some information that makes up your profile
    * search for a game by entering its name in the input
    * click on the result that you want
    * you'll be shown a list of users that play this game.

    At that point you can:

    * filter your results by country / language / dedication level / gender / age / voice communications type
    * view a user's profile
    * add the user on your Steam account through the site
    * privately message the user
    * leave comments on the user's profile page
    * add users to your "Friends" list", so you can organize your contacts

    Some other features:

    * a notifications page that tells you whether someone sent you a friend request or left a comment on your profile page
    * a message inbox
    * a settings page where you can change your profile and tweak site preferences
    * a display that tells you about the user's online status and/or the game currently being played

    About me: I'm a 28 year old web developer from Canada who is currently self-employed. I didn't like working in an office of a warehouse so I found my passion in programming. This is one of two major projects I've completed in 1.5 years since I started making websites. As a guy with very few friends I thought it'd be great to fill the void for people like me.
