TSA = tutorial on how to fix the settings

Steam Spy = "omg the sky is falling & we're shutting down"
Life, it's funny that way.

Steam Spy is shutting down because the way it acquires data is no longer reliable.

TSA is opt-in anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

If anyone cares, this change is primarily around the new European data privacy laws which come into effect in May. So all companies that trade there will need to make similar changes if they haven't already :)

fyi: the checkbox has to be ticked twice to actually be registered as unchecked - the default seems to be checked but it doesn't show.

Whenever I try to change it to public, when I come back to the screen it goes back to friends... Annoying.

That's disappointing. I've always found their site useful and interesting. Shame.

Nothing is showing at all in my privacy settings, weird.

Edit: I got it to work, it was being weird in IE is all.
Grammar Nazi. I do it for the posts.

This still isn't working for me. Started a new account, I have followed these steps, unchecked a million times, and it just won't sync me. I only have one game with achievements (Project Eagle.)

That doesn't make any sense because I've spent around £20 in games (Fallout, Subsurface, Quarantine and Battlestations). Thanks though, any other advice?
