I've got few problems in Steam, where I can't add friends. I'm trying to add my first Steam friend but it comes up with one of these messages:

"Could not invite %s. Their friends list is full."

Error message 1

Error message 2

Does anyone know what the problem is, and how to fix it?

  • Thats it i need pay money for adding friends UGHHHH!! >:(

    Erm, the error message already says it all: "Their friends list is full." You'll have to ask them to remove some of their "friends" so you can add them (or they can add you). There's nothing else you can do.

  • And this is why most popular youtubers/streamers/whatever don't randomly accept friend requests.

  • As everyone's said, the clue's in the error message. If you know them, ask them to remove someone/increase their friends list size (Can be done via Steam levels) If you don't know them... well, chances are they aren't going to accept your invite anyway :P

1 Answer 1


Friendslist of people are limited and only goes up by leveling up. That person has it filled, so you can't add him/her unless s/he levels up or unfriends someone.

  • Aka. You can do nothing about it.
