Angry "You did not enter the correct format" bug

I am trying to enter my Steam URL, http://steamcommunity.com/id/mentalparadox/home,
but the website keeps saying the format is wrong. It is not wrong.

There is no tech support forum here, so I had no choice but to post it here...

I'd guess it wants you to remove the /home at the end.

Jet is right, the home directory leads nowhere on a Steam profile URL. Linking to https://steamcommunity.com/id/mentalparadox works fine and gives me a profile that is private.

Yup, the /home part of for your activity homepage, not your actual profile.

I tried without /home too, didn't work either. Still get this: "You did not enter the correct format for the Steam field. Please read the field description for the expected format."

Mind, I'm trying to add my Steam ID to my profile here. I'm not just trying to post a link.

I made my profile public to see if that would help... Nope.

You don't put the url into the field at all. In your case, all you need to type into that field is "mentalparadox" and it will add the link correctly.

Odd. If that is the case, I wonder why the forum asks me to use the URL format. Refer to screenshot 1 to see what I mean...

EDIT: Gaaaah, now I see what you mean! Wow, I feel stupid now. Thank you, Sir!

It says http://steamcommunity.com/id/[URL]
And when it comes to computer related stuff, by an unwritten, dirt-old and still widely followed convention, when ya have somewholething and one needs to define a relevant and irrelevant parts, square brackets are used, e.g. some[whole]thing. Which "translates" into
irrelevant "some" part followed by a relevant "whole" part, followed by irrelevant "thing" part.

That said, http://steamcommunity.com/id/[URL] is the exact right way to write it there. Although, wording could have been better IMO: since steam calls it "Custom URL" it ought to be http://steamcommunity.com/id/[Custom URL]
But don't let me start bikeshedding here; it could get nasty

Is that what you wish for? I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I thought the exact same thing. Took me a while to figure out what I did wrong
