    Thanks VERY much to all of you!!

    Yes Steam connections are very spotty. Server overload no doubt.

    I think the big rush is over now. I can't believe how many places there have been opinions posted on Greenlight in only 2 days. Lot's of criticism - especially for downvoting. From what I can tell downvoting has been disabled, but Steam isn't telling anyone. Give people something to abuse and some of them will. Looks like an evolving process.....

    We have to rely on the good folks, like those we meet here. Thanks again for all your help!

    all 'social' experiments like this take some tweaking.

    If it's a way for gamers to choose what should be on Steam, it'd be more than a little odd not to count down-votes. Otherwise, ballot stuffing becomes an issue and a questionable game gets promoted to full Steam status.

    the problem with down-votes is you get the same thing, only worse - the stuffing is generated by a rival game.

    Simple- only allow voting from established Steam gamers. Must have played X number of hours over X amount of time?

    You can't vote unless you've bought at least one game. There's no ballot stuffing - one vote per user, but downvotes may very well come from other devs. No doubt Steam can see who might be doing this.

    It's gotten worse though - they've mishandled a queue feature and many games simply don't show up.. Hopefully this will be corrected soon.

    not a big surprise, first time they've done it. Hopefully it will keep going.

    Oh, and they've imposed a $100 fee for submissions now, so if you're not in already you have to pay to get in. $100 is a bit excessive IMO. I think $10 or $20 would cut down on bogus submissions enough that they could manage it without hurting micro dev studios.

    That's like paying $100 just for the priviledge of playing at the craps table.
