The Steam Summer Sale has produced a new badge for everyone - the Years of Service badge.
Much like the “Join Date” here on The Dope, it honors when you first signed up for the service.
I know I got here late, so I am trying to compensate.
I’ve got a 7-year badge, which started on Nov 14, 2004 at 4:16 AM. Why I signed up for Steam at 4:16 AM I will never know - that is lost to history.
I know Senor Beef has a 7-year badge as well.
Actually a little Googling shows me that Half-Life 2 was released on Nov 14, 2004. Signing up for Steam must have been one of those things that popped up during installation.
Ah, you can also click on your friend’s badges to see when they got them.
I see that Mr Beef screwed off for 4 days and did not sign up for Steam until Nov 18, 2004. What a slacker! You call yourself a gamer?
Anyone else want to share their Steam join dates? And also WHY they finally joined?
