Steam Greenlight, the new service that allows the Steam community to discuss and vote on potential candidates for the distribution platform, has already been forced to combat a slew of hoax, unsuitable and sexually explicit content. A small but significant barrier to entry has been introduced in the form of a one-off £70 entry fee, which allows a developer to subsequently submit as many games as they'd like. Valve argues that this measure will "cut down the noise in the system" and deter trolls from getting involved, with money going directly to Child's Play rather than their own coffers.
Valve will also remove gratuitous sexually explicit content when they see it, following a project called "Seduce Me" appearing on the service. Doug Lombardi told Kotaku that "Steam has never been a leading destination for erotic material. Greenlight doesn't aim to change that."
