    Yeah, but what exactly do you mean by the 'Steam ID'? Is it the login name or the number that you can find out with http://steamidfinder.com/ , for example? You need to specify this, I think.

    What is required is your Steam Account ID, this is the ID you use to login to Steam with. The reason you have to give that information is because this a beta and it will be tied to your account and there may be an NDA to sign.

    "Steam ID" is what you use to log in to steam with (so not that number you have or your nick, which you can change).
    You can always check out my reborn twitter attempt: @BjornB_pdx - it kind of sucks though. But sometimes there is interesting/useful info there

    When I signed up for the beta I accidentally used the link to my steam community profile instead of my login username, is there any way I can change this? Cheers
