  • Mute length?

    I got a mute earlier today (I know they can't be removed or shortened, according to Steam support)

    It lasts '-388969 hours' , or -44 years.

    I don't even know which game I got muted for and I haven't had a mute in a few months, I was of course shit talking / spamming pretty hard though, but not as much as I've done in the past and not received mutes for

    first of all, how is this even possible, second of all, not sure if I should be crying out of anger or laughter right now

      Haha, thank god. Was kind of getting bummed out I'd have to time travel to 1970 to go play Dota again.

        Yeah, it's a visual bug. You know, a bug, the thing Valve doesn't think exist. They'll probably never fix it.
