I just noticed that it is now saying the following:



perhaps we should make several GT Steam groups so it'd be possible to view who is online via the dropdown?

I also wish there was an easier way to add folks from within a multiplayer game. I've enjoyed playing Alien Swarm with lots of pickup group teammates, but many use a different nickname than their Steam ID. You can of course just ask someone, but sometimes games break up abruptly.

Uhm... if there are 100 GT'ers, how do you suppose you are going to break them up and be able to see everyone? You mean like I did with the Live accounts using friends of friends (which I don't think gets used)?

naw, there are 205 currently.  it just doesn't show them all on the friends list pop-up window.  you have to go to the main group list from the community window.

I thought something like that was possible but couldn't find a way to do it, so I just let it drop.

Yeah. The logic is that if you create multiple groups, everyone in GT needs to be in each one to see the people in it.

They should change it to only show online folks in those groups.

While I loved the idea of Steam community groups in theory, I ended up on probably 25 such groups mostly filled with folks I don't know who don't seem at all interested in co-op or playing together or even acknowledging each others' existence. Even when the group is called "co-op group for game X"  icon_razz I don't feel Steam has found a way to "tame" the friends list UI in such a way to make it useful. Once you have a lot of folks on the list and community groups, it just seems like a mess that's tough to weed through.

I just cut out a couple of groups that I belonged to but never played with anyone from; I figured why be in the group if I didn't use the group for anything.
