Should/How To Contact GSC

HISTORY:
I have Shadow of Chernobyl game.
I have the CD, the Manual and the Key for the game.
I also have a Steam acct which I have already registered COP & CS through.

PROBLEM:
I want to register the SOC game through Steam but Steam's system does not recognize the CD key I have as a Steam registered game and subsequently wants me to buy the game again to get it through Steam servers.

QUESTION:
Can and how do I get a game key that Steam will accept without buying a second game through Steam?

I have no idea, but have you contacted Steam support about the problem?

Are you sure the CD key you have is for Steam?
The game released by THQ does not use a Steam key but an ordinary CD key.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is available on gog.com (DRM free) and several times a year it's on sale.

Q) Have you contacted Steam Support?
A) I wouldn't be here with this question if it were that simple. They told me to contact the games retailer.

Q) Are you sure the CD key you have is for Steam?
A) Yes. Certain enough hat I'd bet large amounts of money on it.

Q) The game released by THQ does not use a Steam key but an ordinary CD key.
A) That's the problem I stated. I need a key that cooperates with steam to replace the key I have.

Q) S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is available on gog.com (DRM free) and several times a year it's on sale.
A) Interesting info but I'm not sure how it helps me. I want to play the game through Steam along with all my other games.

Is there some way to contact anyone who might have an answer to this THQ/GSC/Steam, "game key" dilemma?

Q) Do you own the Steam version of Shadow of Chernobyl?
A) No I don't but I'm demanding Steam give me a free one since I bought the retail version of Shadow of Chernobyl and have a Steam Account

Ok.
While I understand that you're certainly not openly calling me a dumb shit, I'm certainly not openly calling you a wise ass prick.

So setting all that useless crap aside, what's you're point here?

There you said something! Can't you "reclaim" all three games here even with the (non-Steam) box codes: https://www.gog.com/reclaim ? I even recall I've done it myself.

I'm confused. Your answer to the next question implies "no".

ManOwaR

Since you're the Administrator, can you fix the useless pop-up ( makes no difference which choice you make ) that freezes every page, every link and every action we take here on the GSC Forums please? It's very annoying:

I don't think any of us regulars are using a search engine to get here and since we are all wanting to be here, it's something we shouldn't be seeing with our every action.

Thanks,

Still there too for me, even after deleting my internet history, cookies, etc.

I'm using Microsoft Edge for Windows 7. It pops up with every single action.

However I just tried my old Internet Explorer 10, that just about no one supports anymore. It popped up once in the center ( old style ) actually worked when you said "OK" ( took you to new GSC website ) and then if you backed out, you could navigate the GSC Forums freely without seeing it again. I can actually close that browser, re-open it and not see it again. Just using Microsoft's newest browser does it appear like locusts.

PCDania, just to make sure the old script isn't cached, does it help if you force refresh with Ctrl-F5?

Trying it..... That worked.
I wonder where that one was hidden as I've set my browser to delete the contents of the cache (Except for cookies) when I close it. Maybe it only deletes pages and not scripts?

Control-F5 worked for me too. No idea that even existed.
