It may be notable that the first octet is swappable. For example User:Robin_Walker's Steam ID, STEAM_0:0:84901, will give the same lookup when the first octet is changed to STEAM_1:0:84901.

The SteamID Page says :"Lower values of 'Z' in the format described above (i.e. the account number) indicate an account made further in the past to one with a higher value."As far as i can tell, this ain't completely true in all cases (or maybe i miss something?). Take a look at the following Profiles:
TS 1309029115 (June 25, 2011)
TS 1315245396 (September 5, 2011)
The second Account is smaller than the first on, but it was created after the first one?! These are just examples. There are definetly som mor of these. What exactly am i missing?

Using the formula http or http or https://steamcommunity.com/path/[letter:1:W] I was unable to get a valid profile using the id path. Changing the path to profiles provided a valid link.
