Yeah, the style seems new to me as well. Could be the browser though?

Yep, it must be browser related because there have been no styling changes.

Did the "Fixed an issue where Steam groups were no longer syncing with Steam." fixed too the problem with the deleted/deactivated steamgroups that are still listed at sg ? I have 10+ stacked up from them
We as users can't leave a disabled/deleted steam group, so no solution we can do.

Thanks, i will look into it and write as soon as i tested it

You actually still are in those groups, the API access used by SG thus correctly lists them all, I guess there's no way to see if they are disabled, Steam only hides them on their pages.
There is a way to leave them, just a little bit complex. I was thinking of making a thread explaining how to sometime.

Du siehst im Steamtext, bei beiden Gruppen die ich jetzt auf die schnelle gefunden und getested habe, das sie entfernt wurden.

  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

I found one of them and type then at the Web console -the browser console brought other stuff that arent useful- [i use firefox] (copy/paste don't work there):

(sg show it wrong, there are 3x I 5x I 9x _) [sg drive me crazy with the text formating right now :-D ... i look for a better/easier to test group]

Better example:

Confirmation question come, i click on the yes and get:

This 2 steamgroups aren't listed anymore at steam.

I synced steamgifts and checked the groups and it is still there :o(

Have i done something wrong ? (I tested it without the " but that gave only a syntax error message)
OR did steam need time to sync that info with sg ?

<group ID> is an 18 digit number, to find it you can go to the SG page for the group there will be a link to the Steam page in this format: http://www.steamcommunity.com/gid/<group ID>

Hope this helps :]

I have "groups" there and not gid
Because the one group used underlines and I, let the comment formating at sg me don't show it right at the text.
It was from https://www.steamgifts.com/group/64bV5/iii

Better example:

You need to figure out the Group IDs
For your first group it is 103582791460043404
For WeAreLewds (seriously? :D) it is 103582791455652086

Then post it in your browser console and add the respective Group IDs
ConfirmLeaveGroup("<group ID>");

Visit the group page and add /memberslistxml/?xml=1 to it.


The first entry on the the resulting XML page is:

et voilà!

Just ignore the "undefined" response, it is working, you can check it. ;)

Thanks, after a new check it works. Undefined message don't interest at it :-D

Hatte wegen dem undefined gedacht es funktioniert wieder nicht. Und brauchte dann erst mal ne Pause bevor ich es heute dann wieder probierte ;)

Sorry for the double post here, but I checked it myself and regardless of the "undefined" response, you should now have successfully left the group.

The whole <group ID> string in the command is a placeholder for the group ID and you first made the mistake to carry over the "<" ">" symbols to the ID.

Don't worry about the undefined, it should work like that, just sync and check your group list here.
For the group ID, don't click the Steam button on the Steamgifts group page, instead right-click on it and choose "Copy link address" (or something similar depending on your browser). Then paste it and you will have something like http://www.steamcommunity.com/gid/103582791432125620

Are followed games supposed to appear as Groups on SG? I've got more than 100+ of those groups. I don't really wish to unfollow those games as its the way I get update info from the games. Cheers~

Yes, because they are groups on Steam.

It is also interesting to note that not all of the followed games are groups. Just about 1/8 of them followed are shown as groups, I wonder why.

Sorry for the post, but, how can I find a group's Steam ID? So I can use the "Groups can now be searched by their Steam ID" feature.

Right, so when I enter the url with the "/memberslistxml/?xml=1" how do I get to the XML page?

1 year ago

Comment has been collapsed.

When you add "/memberslistxml/?xml=1" to the end of the URL, that is the XML page. For example...

  1. Group page: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/reddit
  2. XML page: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/reddit/memberslistxml/?xml=1

Alternatively you could...

  1. Visit your groups page: https://steamcommunity.com/id/CM22_95/groups/
  2. Right click and copy the "N in Group Chat" link for the group you want to lookup. The chat link contains the group ID.

Thanks for the answer, cg!
For some reason there was a "#" on the link, making it not work. Both methods work great, thanks again!

I may be dumb, but I don't remember /messages page to have categories.

Or I was blind for so long and was missing it :sweatsmile:

Anyway: I like it :ok_hand:
