Well, one badge is for each year that you are on steam, it raises a level, and another one is from the winter sale that's all I know

Last summer there were tickets that could be used for dlc. Sadly the badge had to be activated by getting a TF2 hat. I never claimed the hat :( and thus no pretty badge :(

There's another badge for potatoes gathered during the Potato Sack event, of which I only have 1.

There is 7 all up that I know of, there are a few of them you can't get if you haven't already because they were from previous events.

I was playing CS way before it used Steam. Back in the days I didn't like it and only made myself an account to play HL2.
Steam's service has improved so much over the time, nearly impossible. You don't see anyone making fun about this anymore: Funny .gif

I've seen someone around ID 2200 playing CS:GO when I got invited. That translates to something like 8-9 years?

Where do you find these badges?

BananaNation

Any way to find that from Steam itself? I don't usually view steam from my browser.

MosesXIII

(1 year ago)

Go to Community, then click on the Profile tab. They should be on the right.

funymunky

Simply click your profile picture in the bottom right corner. Your Badges will appear on the right side, click them for more details.

Well, I CAN'T get the video one. I uploaded a video successfully but it didn't register. Anyone else experiencing the same?

I won't do this anyway, simply because of connecting steam with Facebook and adding my real name. No Thanks :)

As for your problem: Absolutely no idea :D

Meh I had a fake facebook.

tritian

That's a good idea. I just reupped Meet the Pyro and deleted it when done.

NobodyMK

(1 year ago)

I put as my real name 42 and then just deleted. It worked well. ^^

Winn

(1 year ago)

so add a fake name. i have had the text "<-- that's me" in the name field for a while now. most actual names don't have that much punctuation...

also, i don't understand why people are so against linking their steam profile to facebook. all it does is check your facebook friends to see if any of them are also on steam but not on your steam friends list, then suggest that you add them. you can say no i don't actually like that person and it will stop suggesting them.

"uploaded a video" as in to youtube? you know you need to add the video to your steam profile, right? i had a bunch of videos on there already so it gave me that task without having to do anything, which is nice because last time i had to remove and re-add one of my videos to get it.

misterhaan

(1 year ago)

Oh, it just means uploading it to your Steam profile page? I thought it meant uploading it from Steam to one of the social sites that it shows (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) I'll see if that works.

Pillar of community, 3 Years of service, Steam Holiday Sale 2011, Steam Summer Camp, , The Great Steam Treasure Hunt

Pillar of the community, 4 years of service, Steam Holiday 2011, Potato sack (1 potato). I thought I joined in 2009, not 2008. That badge is quite useful.

I have 7 right now. And I don't see how useful they can be to me.

i now have 5: steam summer sale, pillar of community, years of service, steam holiday sale 2011, and summer camp.

Romanesco (1 year ago)

But what is the purpose of these badges?!

Just to collect stuff. I'm thinking all the tickets and coal etc of past sales were getting people a little too worked up. Also all those damn scammers. I prefer just sales and not all that extra crap.

I miss the daily achievement hunts. A few of them were quite challenging, and it introduced me to a lot of good games I wouldn't have otherwise looked into.

Question: How did you guys get the summer camp badge? I am asking because I participated in that event and got some tickets which I spent to buy some things like Alien Breed and some TF2 stuff, but I noticed I don't have the badge.

Had to get 34 tickets. ''edit'': In fact, I DID get 34 tickets, not sure how many you needed.

RedRain

I got 8 tickets and I have the badge :)

TheGreatDoctor

You probably had to do some of the basic stuff back then. Like joining the group or something. I got less then 34 and got the badge.

just have 6 - i missed the potato one... damn i want that potato

I'm pretty sure you can get the potato one. Some of the potato sack achievements are still live as far as I know. You only need one in order to get the badge. If you did the achievement in Super Meat Boy I think it would unlock as that's how I got it and I didn't actually get it during the potato sack.
