Valve has already had to remove fake projects from Steam Greenlight

Friday, 31st August 2012 16:33 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Steam Greenlight launched yesterday, and Valve has already had to remove fake projects from the service.

Valve has quickly intervened, and is banning those who create fake entries from Steam’s community services.

One of the entries removed was a 9/11 inspired “game” titled “Best WTC Plane Simulator”. Other submitted entries removed had racial connotations.

Greenlight launched yesterday with 30 projects, and as of today there are over 590; however, the number keeps changing as Valve wields its removal hammer.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    @1 Nope. Not at all. A bit saddened? Sure. But not surprised in the least.

    Actually i’m a bit surprised that i haven’t seen more of the fake projects than i have. Either only a bunch of people are idiots instead of the majority, or Valve is doing a damn good job of removing the fake projects. My experience with people lead me to believe Valve are doing a great job x)

    Don’t they have an intern to weed those out? Just a little peek before it ends up on the frontpage.
