All achievements are created equal under the sun. Leave them be smile

Wow, not at all used to the 'light' theme I have over here.

The achievements were there at some point, so they should be there for good

TiCyrillou said:I would imagine an intermediate vote:
- If achievements were removed after people earned them, those gamers deserve bonus (extra points, for example?), but achievements have to be removed in order to allow others gamers to 100% the game (even if they never win these deleted achievements).
I endorse this answer.

"How should we handle disabled achievements?"
Build them an access ramp?

I would say handle it like it was handle on trueachievements. Games like Chromehounds that were almost 100% online achievements (yet the online was stopped) just keep it around like a legacy. Removed or not, they had to earn it.

The difference with Chromehounds is, those achievements still exist. Steam sometimes completely removes achievements, and it looks like they were never there in the first place. They aren't 'discontinued', like on TA.

If they don't exist on Steam then they shouldn't exist here. Remove them.

Now the poll is closed, Can't we have the votes summary? Even if it won't be the Staff choice, I would like to know what was the thoughts of the community! Thanks! wink

My TSA score just decreased by about 10%... does it have something to do with this vote?

deutschZuid said:My TSA score just decreased by about 10%... does it have something to do with this vote?This is probably due to the site no longer counting 0 achievement games on your card. Making the ratios for many achievements and games across the site drop. My TSA score dropped a couple thousand and my ratio has gone down by about 0.10

More can be read about it here towards the end of the thread.

Hi, Can we have a clue about when a change will happen about deleted achievements??

Since the poll is closed, nothing changed so far. wink

Hi, I just wanted to up this thread. In order to have some clues about this choice.

I can't wait for TrueSteamAchievement to stop being AlmostSteamAchievements laugh

I hope you'll handle this quickly! Now 1 achievement I owned has been deleted on Steam, my amount of achievements in Steam is different than the amount I got in TSA, and it's not what I was expected from TrueSteam...

Please... Help us! wink

So, what did the staff decide ? Currently I have 1 game (Orcs Must Die) that can't be competed at 100% on TSA because there is an achievement that still appear here despite it is no longer obtainable as it has been removed from Steam :/

and it's rather stupid one too...to connect your account with website that has been removed entirely. robot accounts are no longer valid.

this issue has been on going for a long time. one thing why i actually don't use this site anymore. not till they fix unobtainable achievements. i have few completed games that are "incomplete" on this site.

Yeah i personally just joined and now that i don't see it really linking to steam properly in terms of whatever achievements the actual game has on there.

Personally i was more on the percentage of things rather than the score, so if it means that the site doesn't link to the steam achievements accordingly then I probably would rather use another tool.

Don't get me wrong, people that got an achievement in the past is fine, but personally for me even if i had got that achievement in the past before it was disabled I think I would rather have it deduct my achievement as it no longer meets with the "steam achievements", after all the site is called "True Steam Achievements" so shouldn't all disabled or old achievements from steam meet up with this site?

Just a food for thought.

Another vote for Not on Steam then Not on TSA. It's pretty simple really. Even if I lost achievements that were disabled I wouldn't be bitter about it. 55/55 going to 54/54 wouldn't bother me one bit. Both equal 100%. :)

I noticed you deleted the no longer existing on steam achievements! It's just fine!
But it looks like there's a mistake somewhere.
When I set my profile to "All DLC", it works fine!
When I set my profile to "DLC I own", all my games are still considered not finished because of deleted achievements still counted in! (And no more viewable on game pages...)

Thanks for the fix! wink


Edit 1: Epic work! Very good job!
There's just 1 bug remaining (as far as I investigated) :
If I set my account to "DLC I own", if I click on "my Games" and if I select "Visibility : Exclude completed games", games with deleted achievements are still here, even if they're highlighted in green and mentionning 100%. (I'm almost sure they have to be masked)
Thanks for this good update! wink


Edit 2: All seems ok! Thanks again! wink
