Some impressions about Steam

Steam is a system developed by Valve to distribute PC games over internet, legally. It is a great idea and most of the idea is applied well. But I recently started to use Steam web page and Steam client a lot and I don’t like some obvious parts of the experience. Are Steam developers aware that you constantly asked for the login details around the different parts of the web page and are they aware that the system constantly forgets me so I end up entering my details 5-6 times a day? This is really annoying and makes it a terrible experience.

Also such sites should not use prewritten scripts for forums, blogs, etc. This makes the system disintegrated. For example, every Steam user has more than one profile page: one for Steam and one for Steam forums, which makes it a mess and hard to find the information you want about a player. Instead, there should be an integrated forum system and every player should have one profile page which can be accessed from either forums or from other parts of the site and which holds all the public details of the player.
