Valve has updated Steam Greenlight with the ability to skip items in the vote queue, along with “improvements to collections, and new stats for developers.”

In the vote queue, users can now choose “Ask me again later” to skip a title, and consideration it again later on down the road. Skipped titles will be removed from the queue for a month, before becoming candidates again in the queue. Skipped titles can also be viewed through the new “Items to Revisit Later” menu item in Greenlight.

Favorited Greenlight entried will now automatically be “followed”, and users can now become advocates for titles by sharing the project in their friends’ activity feed or on through social media.

Users can now also create a collection which lists all their favorite selections, and post announcements to those who follow said collection. Users can also browse other collections.

Steam Greenlight went live back in August 2012, and an average of three new games have been posted every single day.
