The Official Steam Group!

Recommended Posts

This is the official steam group of Arocalypse! This is a private steam group; so in order to join you must send me a PM with your steam profile link (found at the top of the main page of your steam profile for those that didn’t know. It’s much easier for me to find you than searching your steam name).

 

A number of people have expressed concern about being outed to their friends as this group will appear on their steam profile page. My advice: Join some other random steam groups and they will appear on your main steam profile page ahead of this one. This is mainly due to the inability to hide groups on steam. You just have to hope that your friends don't investigate all the groups you are a part of. I will try to avoid any mention of the word aromantic, and will not provide any mention of this site besides the name. In other words, I'll try to make it look just like a normal steam group. If you are still concerned about this, you have the right to not join; it's completely up to you .

 

All discussion boards on the steam group are visible only to members, meaning that no one outside of the group can see what we are talking about within the group. However, announcements can be seen by people outside of the group and there is no way to change this. To combat this, I have made a forum on the steam group which will function similar to the normal announcements that steam groups use. If you want to keep updated with the steam group, I would suggest subscribing to this forum. Of course, you don’t have to if you don’t want to.

 

An important thing to keep in mind is that the comments on the main page of the steam group are visible to anyone. So if you do decide to make a comment on the main page, do not make any mention to aromanticism. I will delete any comments that do so as quickly as a I can. This doesn't mean you shouldn't use the comments on the main page. Just in case you didn't realise, comments on the main page are different to comments in the discussion forums. The discussion forums are still invisible to non-members, so you can talk about whatever you like there.

Before I use this, I just want to know if my other steam friends can see if I'm in this group? Because my brother is friends with me on steam and this could get awkward.

Unfortunately yes. But as I said in the main post, you can join a bunch of other random public steam groups so that it doesn't appear on your main steam profile page. I will try to make steam group just like any other. You could always try joining after I make it private.

Yeah, I'll probably just wait till it's private. I'm probably just being paranoid but I'm not in any other steam groups, so it'll be pretty obvious.

Once it goes private, only people in the group will be able to see discussions. SO you won't have to worry about people seeing that you're aro (hopefully)

You know, what, I think I'll just join. I mean, the name doesn't have the word "Aromantic" in it, just "arocalypse" and I'm pretty sure my brother doesn't know what "aromantic" is anyway. I'm just being overly paranoid.

Hey, could everyone whose Steam name is very different from their Arocalypse name comment what their Steam name is? I'd like to know who's who in the Steam Group.

I have a list of people's arocalypse names next to their steam name. I'm not 100% sure of everyone, but I can post it on here if you want.

I've updated the main post. If your can't be bothered reading it for the new content I'll post it here.

 

Comments on the main page are visible to anyone, regardless whether or not they're in the group. Do not make any mention to aromanticism here; I will delete any comments that do so. It's just a simple rule that I'm sure everyone can follow with no hassle. Keep in mind that this rule doesn't apply to the discussion forums on the group, just the comments on the main page.

 

I've also updated the group picture. It's just some cookies 'n' cream ice cream. Nothing too over the top.
