Invalid profile alias
« on: January 02, 2013, 03:05:53 PM »
I changed my steam profile name from Custom2188 to Custom |Iced| a really long time ago and ever since then my steam profile view section on the forums has been coming up as a grey box with a red cross and the words "Invalid profile alias" inside. I've changed the name in the steam profile section of my forum profile to Custom |Iced| but that doesn't seem to do anything. I have no idea how to fix this, any help would be appreciated.

p.s Somebody missed an e off the end of profile where it says "Your own Profil from Steam Community"

You are supposed to change it to your community profile URL...

Mine is http://steamcommunity.com/id/Datastream

Yours is http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198021670260

So put 76561198021670260 in there or take a custom (LEL) url.
