  • Why we can't have the word "Valve" in our profile names?

    I'm sure most of you tried to have a profile name including the word "valve" in it. when you try to do so, instead you gonna have stars (*****) as if it is a bad word.

    So I was wondering why? Too ashamed of your user base that will abuse your name through their profile names? Maybe there is a problem, something wrong that makes your users very very angry.

    What do you think guys?

    I didn't realize this was a restriction. Isn't this more of a Steam issue than a Dota 2 issue?
    I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

      The same goes for the word support, you can't put BEST LION SUPPORT NA, but even so, you can't put Valve Support Man, so hey, you now know the reason.
      "What I learned from Valve is I don't think it works. You give people complete latitude with no checks and balances, it's just human nature they're going to try to minimise the work they have to do and maximise the control they have.

        I suppose this is to prevent people from getting tricked. I put name valve and find a random guy and tell him im from valve, i need your accout info etc. Sounds stupid but some people fall for it. It exists with all companies i think as a rule

          This is to prevent humans from being scammed.

          They deserve it though, if they are that stupid.
          Threads I think are useful to read:

                Yup that is very likely the reason, and sadly it DOES SOUND like something sensible to include as a restriction
                Make a NON automated report system.
                I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
                Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
                The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters

                    It really has nothing to do with IQ or shit like that.

                    The fact that people not aware of it alone is a reason, to not allow "valve" or "support" to be available in the client at all.
                    If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

                      people still get scammed by emails saying that their great grandparents from another country died and such...so yeah people are dumb and these kind of things are needed
                      The world is black and white. On one side there are those who are right, complain about valve, spam unhelpfully and everyone who disapprove what you are doing are obviously valveknights.
