Yeah, but this is just starting too. It could easily go into the millions. And wth is it going to hurt them to acknowledge that, no, they haven't abandoned or forgotten HL or that yes, we are working on it and it will be out when it's done.
Millions?
Extremely unlikely.
a) because only 2 groups out of bazillions even barely break 1 million members. One is the steam holiday one where people got rewards for doing so, and since it was free and no specific games required, it was one that got hit hugely by exploiters buying the 1 cent humble bundle pack.
b) There's was about 30 million active steam accounts before the sale as I recall, I think its unlikely that that big of a percentage of them will sign up on a group like that. In fact there's not even a half life related group in the top 50, and after the top 50 its under 80,000 in a group. If there was that much interest in it, I'd think that a half life related group would already be at least in the top 50.

If it was just an online petition, I could see it hitting over a million, but a steam group? IMHO, not going to happen.
