    I don't believe people would accept my white trash lifestyle.

    You can customize your notifications so the window just flashes with new messages, no pop-ups bottom right, no sound, no nothing if you're in full screen, you won't notice it unless you shift+tab.

    Plus just put that you are Busy or Away and tell people to fuck off like everyone else.

    I'm joining AFK crew then.

    You have a lot of ways to circumvent that, though. For one, Steam Group chad doesn't pop in or make noise (default setting). You can also set your status to "Busy" or "AFK" even when playing (appears in chat). Or just put your status in Disconnected if you want zero pestering.

    EDIT: So what the others said.

    Large parts of Finland epitomize the whole white trash - concept.

    But then what's the point in having it open if I am too busy playing the game? :scratch:
    Wait does steam chat channels keep public logs? I guess if it doesn't then it might be an advantage to have it open while we are busy doing other stuff... But it is still a small advantage >_>.

    Oh well, I guess I am just not a social person :whistle:.

    Hale. You have no excuse.

    I created a Discord server for NMA and you can join at this link: https://discord.gg/HQDutJJ

    There, you can hang out by chat, voice or just bum around AFK. There's always the alternative to go to private chat or specific rooms, of course.

    You can invite whoever you feel like, as I or the Moderators can create different rooms, assign roles... That doesn't mean that non-members can come and hog a room to play all by themselves to CS:GO or something. Make your own server for that.

    Could this get pinned somewhere? I can work on a better pamphlet if needs be.

    Most people are on Facebook or something, playing Facebook games. Or playing candy crush or whatever on their cellphone.

    It's fine, I got it up.
    I'm in now if anyone wants to chat.

    (I came across a Pokémon GO discord while searching for this one funnily enough).

    I'd be pretty up for a discord server, I use it way more than any built in communication function that steam offers.

    Also I have a pretty good collection of games so if anyone wants to add me here's a link to my profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Spookybees/

    I am saddened that people actually still use Facebook. I hate people on there because they are your typical brain dead non-internet user that only gets on Facebook.

    Does Facebook have any... reason to exist anymore? A lot of other social networks have taken and done better the particular functions, and forums or blogs can do the other stuff.

    I pretty much just used* it for swedish social media.

    *Edited - I don't really use it much nowadays though. So I guess your point still stands.

    That's the thing, for news and updates in stuff I'm interested Twitter with a link does it. No need to scroll through seas of crap and Candy Crush invites.
