My questions are always failed begging... [QUOTE] [B]Me:[/B] Hi Chet! Can you please send me the video of Terror Strike from 2005 that shows TS gameplay as CS mod on an orange version of No Mercy first map street? It was on YouTube 2 years ago, and I saw it, but haven't seen it again. [B]Chet Faliszek:[/B] Sorry we didn't keep any of that around, no idea who posted it or what was posted. [B]Me:[/B] Do you keep any pre-release content at all? [B]Chet:[/B] Not really, we are always iterating on our work - which is why the idea of a L4D beta build is a myth - I have no idea what that is. [B]Me:[/B] So you don't even have HL1 Beta images and videos on your servers? [B]Chet:[/B] No. [/QUOTE] FAIL. [QUOTE] [B]Me:[/B] Hi Robin! Can you please send me tf2.zip file (34.19mb) from NerdCon 1998 in Germany? I saw links to it on some dead sites, but Internet Archive does not archive large files. And maybe 4mb [I](it's 2.66mb - my fault)[/I] tf2remake.zip from the same time. Thanks in advance. [B]Robin Walker:[/B] I've no idea what was in the tf2.zip file at NerdCon, sorry, nor what's in tf2remake.zip. We've never been to NerdCon, so I don't know who put it together. [B]Me:[/B] It's promo video. More info: [url]http://web.archive.org/web/20001006235805/http://half-life.axg.net/downloads/index.shtml?readme=/ftp/axgftp/downloads/half_life/demos/tf2.zip&fwd=/ftp/axgftp/downloads/half_life/demos[/url] [B]Robin:[/B] At a guess, it was probably this one: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6d59xvzm30[/url] [B]Me:[/B] No, this is a video made by GoZone Productions. It's a combination of original videos and their music. silence from Robin... [/QUOTE] FAIL. Also Jeep Barnett often responds on Steam.

i sent robin my late entry into the King of Queens Metal Maelstrom Contest as mentioned here: [url]http://teamfortress.com/post.php?id=5534[/url] Here is my Entry: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HTT_nDXEzU[/media] no reply from robin as of yet i hope i win! ([sp]yes, it is a joke[/sp]) EDIT: i sent it by email if your wondering what this has to do with emailing valve.
Just went on my tour of valve. Saw Gabe walking around but didn't get the chance to talk to him. It was a fairly large group we were with so they tried to rush us along a bit. I saw a comic they are working on for dota2 and some concept art for heroes. I even got to go to the snackbar and see Gabe's knife collection. It was a nice way to end my PAX trip. Everyone got a small swag bag too.
What'd you get?
[QUOTE=Mio Akiyama;32010876]What'd you get?[/QUOTE] A portal shirt and some other stuff. Not much because there were a lot of pax goers on tour as well but it was still nice.
I'm jealous

Varying from 16-30+. I'm 18.
Quick tip: Do not send group emails to Valve asking for stuff. I got four replies. Then again, four times the stuff!
talk about taking advantage of things
[quote=Joel Hatfield] 2011/8/29 Front Desk <frontdesk@valvesoftware.com> I&#8217;ll make sure that a personalized letter is tucked into the envelope when your signatures go out. [/quote] Awesome.
