Hello,

It seems that older groups that no longer exist on steam are not removed from SG profile when syncing. While it does sync new groups ok - and removes any active group that you are no longer part of, groups that are no longer on steam are not being removed.

If anyone knows a way to remove some of those pesky groups in SG, it would be greatly appreciated.

It's not a bug, it's because Steam consider that you are still a group member when a group is deleted, so you have to leave them manually.

  1. Find out group ID (go the Steamgifts page of the group and check the link to the Steam page, the ID will be in the link
  2. Go to http://steamcommunity.com/my/groups/
  3. Open browser console
  4. Enter

    ConfirmLeaveGroup("<group ID>");

You'll get a confirmation prompt, just accept and you'll be out of the group

Normally the group ID should be enough to leave, the group name parameter is only used to display it in the prompt

Is there a way to view the groups available on SteamGifts? It seems each group has an unique ID https://www.steamgifts.com/group/Group_ID/Group_Name

How about other groups? Apart from looking into https://www.steamgifts.com/discussions/group-recruitment ?

Ah, no, there's no global list of groups. It would be really huge since even groups that are not doing giveaways get added to the website.

Oh I see, I guess I'll look into the active groups in /discussions/group-recruitment :D
Thank you very much for the reply, Cheers, Cruse~

No problem, good luck finding groups you like, there's a bit of everything.
Not all groups are constantly looking for new member and some will only open recruitment threads for a limited period so it's worth checking regularly.
