I don't think h stand for hours. Check the forums to verify this. (There are many threads that compares both stats and hours. For instance, the game-time from some games doesn't seem to count.) --Andreasen 12:20, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)

That r thing looks really strange and complicated. What have you got against "x-x.9"? --Andreasen 13:53, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)

Because there is a 0.1 gap not covered between 3-3.9 and 4-4.9—ts2do 17:02, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)
As far as I can see it's a one decimal system. Either it is 3.9 or 4, of which both states are covered. People will manage to figure out that 3.999999... still won't give you the rank of 4. --Andreasen 17:11, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)
...or perhaps you don't understand at all: That number is simply the rating expressed as a value instead of text: "Steam Rating: 10 - EAGLES SCREAM! Playing time: 201.3 hrs past 2 weeks" That value is not the number of hours. You should probably add another column for that stat. --Andreasen 17:19, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)

It's just a formalization...it's a good idea to keep it like this—ts2do 17:22, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)

Fine, whatever. I can't express the opinion of more than one person. By the way, I'm uncertain as to whether the "COBRA KAI!" rank is capitalized of not, has an "h" in it or not, or even has an exclamation point. I've seen all kinds of formats of this rank in the forums, so if someone finds the rank somewhere on Steam, be sure to update it. --Andreasen 17:32, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)
It's capitalized ;-). User:Snowolf enwiki email me thru enwiki 14:09, 19 Oct 2007 (PDT)

I've found the hours to rank conversion to be one rank point per 3.18 (or 3.2) hours—ts2do 17:45, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)

...wow this looks way to complicated at firsts glance why not simply use 0 - 1.9 hrs, and such, To simple ;D? --Frostbite 17:58, 19 Oct 2007 (PDT)

Indeed.--Gear 19:18, 19 Oct 2007 (PDT)

"Teh Suck!" is deliberately misspelled, is it? That's a shame. I can't remove it from the maintenance page then.

It is. --Frostbite 13:01, 14 Nov 2007 (PST)
I suppose it for the humor.--Gear 15:24, 14 Nov 2007 (PST)

T belive your steam rating should be rated on the kill to death ratio of the player in question not time played because not every one Plays every day of the week i got rejected from a clan because my rating was "El Terrible! Play Time : 6.2 hrs past 2 weeks". when my kill death ratio was 3-1. and my head shot ratio was almost 1-1. i think a kill death ratio would be best in determining the rating of a player.--Teh spartan 15:46, 4 Mar 2008 (PST)

I don't think steam rating should be rated on the kill-to-death ratio. "Steam" rating implies it doesn't just apply to games whose main purpose is to keep a high kill-to-death ratio. You might be spending a lot of time on Steam even though you're not playing an FPS game. And even if you are playing a game like Team Fortress 2, some players play for the win, not keeping a high kill-to-death ratio, like standing in a doorway to slow down an uber'd player from coming in, or a scout getting an enemy demo to detonate his stickies so that the players following can rush in unharmed. 31 Oct 2008

Steam suggestions go in the Steam forums Guys.--Gear 02:39, 1 Nov 2008 (PDT)
