Does steamrep keep track of old friends?

    Hey,
    I had a fallout with a friend on steam quite a while ago. I want to add him again or atleast find his profile again.
    So my question is, does steamrep have a database of your previous friends? If they do, could i get the friends profile back?

    It depends if your account has been queried into their website or database. Check your account on the steamrep page, see if you get anything useful. Try "Historical Data"
    There's also another website called steamid.co.uk it works well but the data is buggy sometimes.

    Keep in mind that steamrep only saves data when a user queries for that steamid. It's quite possible for someone to add, talk, remove without ever being saved by steamrep.

    I think it uses our API, that does not let our site load in a browser on the profile. Which is what is needed to let SR read the API of STEAM and make a historic entry.

    Then there probably isn't an extension, unless @Salmon's thinking of something else like steamidconverter's extensions or something...

    there have been a couple plugins. SR is working on one, which will started to be ported to chrome once the one for firefox is working to satisfaction.
    @n0:name made one, currently no idea if that one is working (I used it before SR made their own, and it had some problems when valve changed their settings on the site, essentially blocking GreaseMonkey, while SR's was native)

    Got anything against making my own similar thingg? Personally I hate firefox and chrome, memory hogs.

    nope, the API is free to use, only high usage counts will in the future require a API key, but that hasn't been build in yet.

    Unless you go about checking thousands per hour, it will be pretty sure be no problem.

    And regarding memory hogging: got 16 GB, no problem.

    Awesome, I know I'm going a bit of topic but one last question, Does steam itself limit the amount of checking? I.E like your (Steamrep) checking steam profiles or other similar websites such as steamid.co.uk or steamidcovertor.com such as grabbing that users profile data.

    Steam itself has a limitation of 100K API calls a day if I remember correctly.

    Mine is still working, but you have to disable CSP for it (not really recommended).
    I gave up on it in the meantime.
