Blocked and deleted a friend, can't get him back

I met this guy, and I added him to Steam. I was sick of him, so I blocked communication and then accidentally removed him as friend. I don't know his Steam name, I do know his login name which you can use to add him. If I try to add him, it says I've blocked him and that I have to unblock him before I can add him. Can't steam do that automatically?


I know his login name, so how do I use it to find him?

You said you can find him on steam. Use steam community to go to his profile page and unblock him from there.

He said he can't.
Login names do not show up on Steam Community search; only your display name does.

Try going to your Community home, Manage your friends, Blocked Users.
or
http://steamcommunity.com/id/*******/friends/blocked/ (But replace the *'s with your URL.)

If you blocked your friend, he should show up on that page.

The friends/blocked URL will only list friends who are blocked. The OP says he unfriended him, so he won't appear in that list.

If you don't have contact with him with another instant messenger program, perhaps the best thing to do is to make another steam account and add him from there, as long as adding him by his login name works. Then you can get his steam profile page by right clicking on his profile and select copy community URL or something. I don't think this works for people who have their profiles set to private (it MIGHT still work, but won't show any information).

Then you can log out, log back on your account, go to his URL and then unblock him.

QED.

Well, all the people I see on this page are definitely not friends and actually never were... so this page shows all the people you blocked, regardless or your friendship status. The URL is bit misleading indeed, though.

To the OP: go to the page BS_1 mentionned, you'll find this player you blocked and unfriended

Oh! You're right. I forgot that we had added this list to the web.
