  • Valve cutting down things that do not make profit? That's the case probably.
  • Lately they are removing everything.

    Steam gifting is good as gone, steam developer badge is gone, steam trading cards will be gone unless game sells well.
  • They are removing the old forums area since they already have a new forums set up
  • Looks like they are just moving from "Steam Users' Forums" http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/ to "Steam Discussions" https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/

    Maybe someone could explain what's the difference between these two services? The list of forums looks almost the same in both cases.

    honestly spuf was a pretty awful place to have any meaningful discussions, just about everything you would say there would be argued by some smug jerk, acting like gaben himself was watching.

    SPUF was running on vBulletin forum software, Valve made steamcommunity on a newer platform, probably open source forum code, that they wouldn't have to pay license fees to use.
