  • Steam account linking glitch

    Hi:

     

    I am unable to link my Steam account to my GFL forums account for an unknown reason.


     

    So what I tried is to link my Steam account through my account settings. I went to the “Steam” tab and I signed into my Steam account. When I signed in, the forums says “Your Steam account is already associated with another member.” (Screenshot below).

    So I tried checking if my Steam account was already linked, so I went to the “Overview” tab in my account settings. The Steam account is not linked. (Screenshot below)

    Just to make sure one last time, I decided to sign out, and try to sign in with my Steam account. When I signed into my Steam account into the forums, the forums tells me that I do not have a forums account linked, and that I need to type a display name for my forums account and an email account, as if I didn't have a Steam account linked to this account (Screenshot below).

    If a forum moderator could forcefully link my Steam account somehow, I would really appreciate it, because I find it easier to sign into the forums with my Steam account. Just in case someone needs it, here’s my Steam account details:

     

    Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:92946166

    Community ID: 76561198146158060

    Community URL: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198146158060/

    Custom URL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/James_Newman/

     

    Thanks in advance, and have a great day.

    You need to give it the info it's asking for in the last screenshot. The account is still linked to the initial account.

    Just tried that out. Didn't work.

    Try a different username / email address. Once you set that, I can unlink it manually, delete the account, or you can just use that one instead.

    Sorry for the late response, I have been busy the last few days. I just followed these instructions and I made a new account, @James Newman2. Everything’s good now. You may delete this account, but can you perhaps change the second account’s username to “James Newman” afterwards? I would also like to re-set this account’s email to the new one.

    Sorry if I am being persistent, but I want to have my username and email changed before applying for member. Can I get an update on that?

    I went ahead and changed the username for you, but provided you have access to both accounts, you should be able to change the email yourself.

     

    If you are unable to, which email to you want on which account? (Avoid mentioning the actual emails in public lol)

    I am unable to change it because I am technically already using the same email on this account, that’s why I am asking for support. Could you change the email from this account (the one I am posting on right now - @James Newman_) to the one I am going to be using (Which is @James Newman), please? If you manage to get it changed and I’m good to go, you may go ahead and delete this account (That one being @James Newman_). Thanks in advance.
