Steam Greenlight Adds Stats, A Skip Option, and More
Jan 30, 2013
We've just released an update to Steam Greenlight based directly on feedback and requests from the community – both developers and consumers. This update includes the ability to skip items in your vote queue, improvements to collections, and new stats for game and software developers.
Since the Steam Greenlight service went live back in August, an average of three new games have been posted to Steam Greenlight every single day. With so many great game and software titles being added it can be pretty hard to keep up. One of the great ways to discover new titles is to just jump into your queue. It is your own personalized queue of games you haven’t voted on. From there you can vote Yes, No, and now 'Ask me again later' to skip a title for consideration again at a later date.
If you really like a particular Greenlight entry, you can favorite it to easily find it later, or now you can opt to separately 'follow' items to be notified when the developer posts new announcements. Similarly, you can now 'follow' collections in Greenlight to be notified when collection authors post announcements.
Meanwhile, a new set of detailed statistics are now available for developers to show exactly how many people are looking at their item, voting, and how that adds up over time.
You can read the full update details on the Greenlight blog here.
