    If you just enabled steam guard you must now wait 15 days in order to trade again. Or thats my understanding of the new policy.

    "Starting December 12th, Steam Trading will require that your account has had Steam Guard enabled for the last 15 days before you can trade items"

    This is correct, to prevent people from making alts for scamming an account must have been active with Steam Gaurd for 15 days at the very least.

    We are not able to help anyone with this issue.
    You have to enable Steam Guard and wait 15 days.

    Ok, im sorry to do it like this, but steam did give enough warnings.
    I'll just quote:

    "Steam Guard has to be active for 15 days (as they did anounce awhile ago, you had to make sure you activated it before 12/12).
    I am assuming you didn't activate it, meaning you now have to wait 15 days before you can make another trade (security reasons perfectly launched together with the community market)

    So to put it simple:
    - You had to activate SteamGuard
    - You didn't
    - You now have to wait 15 days before being able to trade again"

    The actual solution is to activate SteamGuard:
    • Open steam.
    • Go to top right, and click "Steam", and select "Settings":
      [​IMG]
    • In this dialog screen, make sure that the "Contact Email" is "Verified" by letting it send you a email, and you confirming the email by clicking on the sent link by Valve.
      [​IMG]
    • Once your email is verified, make sure via the "Manage Steam Guard account security" button that its ENABLED:
      [​IMG]
    • With the optional tick box "Deauthorize all other computers now" you can remove steam guard access to any other computer (requiring them to use a steam guard code to activate).
    • Wait after done the above for 15 days to be able to trade again or use the Steam Market place.
    Notes:
    If you have been hijacked, and steam support restored your access, you won't be able to trade till you have had steam guard enabled for 15 days.
    Once steamguard is set to enabled, it doesn't mean its activated, it takes 3x logging into steam after been verified with your email.

    hello, I didn't "read" you, what did you write? maybe you should use a bigger font. Yeah, sorry, I've lost my 20x magnifier.

    Is there a way to like this several times? After a long day at work this made me laugh.

    It was being told to anybody trading in the past ~2 weeks after/during a trade in the window. If you didn't notice, it was a green bar with that text. I don't have text or imagery available, but somebody can prolly help out in that.

    Also made last line as big as it gets in the manual.

    Hmm, forgot to note that after enabling SteamGuard, it takes 3x a steam login to have a steamguard security status...

    /edit: added to notes:
    Once steamguard is set to enabled, it doesn't mean its activated, it takes 3x logging into steam after been verified with your email.

    i think why steam cant give other ideas better?
    for example my idea is set password for inventory.when we delete ( or trade ) items must input right password.
    i wish steam's mod can see that idea or other better than what they did :(

    Security must be viable without putting undue burden on users.

    I used to tell people who wanted me to harden their systems, that the only way to achieve perfect protection was put there machine(s) in a metal room with 3 feet thick walls, lock it up, hire guards with machine guns to stand outside and never connect the machine to anything.

    Sadly the real world demands such things are practical. Valve doing something is better than nothing :)
