The addition of new content through the Steam Workshop now has to undergo an approval process which means games like CS:GO and Dota 2 will potentially be hurt due to the reliance on the workshop.

As pointed out by eagle-eyed fans on Reddit, and first reported by PCGamesN, the Steam Workshop is undergoing some changes that require an approval process before things go live.

CS:GO heavily relies on user-made content on the Workshop and this could end up being very detrimental to the game as we know as things can be slowed down significantly now.

Valve, the owners of Steam, say the new policy has been put in place to put an end to the free skins phishing scandal that has been plaguing the platform.

The approval process will usually take less than an hour but could end up taking up to a day according to the Steam Support page.

While it will be an extra burden for creators and modders, it will help create a better platform overall for the Workshop.

This change will significantly cut back on scams that are found across Valve games like CS:GO, Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2.

Dota 2 will hopefully have less scammers with this new change.

According to PCGN, there will be some exceptions for who this affects and doesn't affect. Submissions from creators who have a large number of voters of subscribers will not require approval so their content will not be hurt.

However, those who have relied on the platform for scams will now find it much harder to do so.

From the sounds of things, it seems like the new approval process has already been finalized so scammers already have an extra step to get through.

While this has the chance to be annoying for normal creators early on, it's an important step towards providing a better platform for everyone else.
