Report RSS Insight on the Steam situation

A lot of people have been asking where the Perisno page on Steam went, and if it will ever be back again. I'll tell you a bit about the whole situation.

Short video by Michadr, briefly explaining the situation.

So, a few weeks ago, Perisno went hiding on Steam. The reason for it, is currently unknown. We do not know what caused the mod to turn hidden all of the sudden. As most of you don't know, but some may know, our Steam page is administrated by a member of the team that is inactive in terms of development of the mod. Not only is he inactive in the development of the mod, but he was also rather hard to get in contact with recently.

The lead developer, and owner of the mod, Michadr, has recently tried to get in contact with the person, and I've tried as well, but after a few days of waiting, we had to take action. Michadr contacted Steam, and eventually ended up filing a DMCA on the mod, as Steam seemed to have misunderstood a few things, or just decided to go straight to the brute force method.

Nonetheless, the person eventually noticed that something was going on, and he then sent me a message, asking what's going on. I filled him in on the whole situation, and I believe that both sides could've handled the situation better. Of course, as the administrator of one of the biggest pages of the mod, he should've been more active, and really should realize when there's something wrong with the page, as he is the only one in a position to fix it. Michadr, the owner and lead developer of the mod, wasn't even in a position to do anything about it, due to the Steam Workshop's way of handling Workshop file permissions.

But eventually we worked things out personally between all three, although we're currently waiting for Steam to respond, so we can find out what will happen to the Workshop file. Currently there's two possible results. Either we'll get the page back, and have the permissions changed, or we'll have to make an entire new Workshop page, which is very inconvenient, considering how many subscribers it currently has.

We'll make sure to fill you in as the whole situation comes to a clear end.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Regards,
Reus & the Perisno Development Team.

And that is why I like downloading things manually rather than Steam WS. Although good you guys sorted the situation.

Unfortunately we haven't "sorted" it out quite yet. I never liked steam, nor will i start liking it, but it's a popular platform so I can't do much about that...
