    As some of you may have noticed, we've been dealing with a lot of spam on the forums lately. In order to combat the spam, we've decided to require new users to register and sign-in using Steam. It's not hard, all you need is a valid Steam account and a little bit of time! Need a little help figuring it out? Follow the step-by-step instructions below!

    Step 1: Click the Sign in through STEAM button

    Step 2: Login to Steam's secure authentication system

    DONE! You may now create new threads, post replies, upload resources, and enjoy the forums! :)

    This only affects new accounts though correct or has it just not been forced globally.

    Right now it's global, it just wasn't applied yet at the exact time of posting. The way it works, is the site checks if the user has their Steam account associated or not, then adds them to the appropriate user group with permissions.

    Is it still not applied as mine is no longer linked and still can post.

    Apparently the settings didn't save. ;) Fixing now.

    Edit: Fixed.

    Just wondering is there approval wait time? I linked my account and it tells me I still do have permission to post or download mods

    You do have permission or don't? Downloading plugins/resources is fixed now, and you posted here, so that should be working.

    Ok i just associated my steam account with my Oxide forum profile and it made a new account from what i can gather and now i don't have privileges on my own resources.

    What other account did you make, because the one you are under now doesn't match anything from the "OrangeJoe" user with no space. Both the accounts were not made recently.

    I can still post without connecting my steam profile :)
    Edit: Downloading plugins also works. I can also get onto the resource update page but cant check if I can post it since i havent one ready.

    Update 2: The promotion system in XenForo seems to be a bit flakey right now for some reason, so we've temporarily disabled the Steam requirement until we resolve the issue.
