New Steam policy protects users from scams and spam

Valve has implemented a new policy on Steam which limits user accounts which have spent less than $5 through the store.
The new policy is to protect users from phishing scams and spam.
If the users hasn’t spent anything on the store, they at least have to have $5 sitting in their Steam Wallet. This will limit accounts from performing the following actions:
  • Sending friend invites
  • Opening group chat
  • Voting on Greenlight, Steam Reviews and Workshop items
  • Participating in the Steam Market
  • Posting frequently in the Steam Discussions
  • Gaining Steam Profile Levels (Locked to level 0) and Trading Cards
  • Submitting content on the Steam Workshop
  • Posting in an item’s Steam Workshop Discussions
  • Accessing the Steam Web API
  • Using browser and mobile chat
The restrictions noted above will not be lifted unless money has been spent or the Steam Wallet has the minimum required funds.
