    SteamRep only handles appeals for BANNED BY SR, SR CAUTION, BANNED BY SOP, and SOP CAUTION.
    Other tags must appeal to the community that marked them. We DO NOT handle bans for other communities.


    If you have any of the tags above in addition to other community tags you must appeal with the other communities FIRST before appealing here. Appeals which do not follow this will be marked automatically INVALID.

    Look up your tag below:

    Additional notes: UHC Closed down August 15, 2011. Most if not all admins went over to UTC, and they handled the appeals till 3 months after UHC closed down. After which they could no longer use google cache to see topics on UHC anymore. Subsequent UTC policy stopped handling these appeals altogether. After the UTC-MCT merger, this still held true. See http://manncotrading.com/index.php/topic,3443.0.html for more details. After MCT closed down in fall of 2015, SteamRep has inherited ownership of these cases. You may appeal this tag on SteamRep.

    Processes for Tags: BANNED BY SR, SR CAUTION, BANNED BY SOP, and SOP CAUTION

    Appeal Process:
    1. Prepare for appeal. Read the Appeal FAQ and ensure you meet the requirements. (For example, your profile must be public.) Also, please read the Appeal Tips.
    2. Submit appeal to the forum. (Forum Link)
      • Only SR, SOP, RAWR, and ASBO tags allowed.
      • Use proper format. All appeals must be posted on the forums in the appeal section using the format described below (see Appeal Format).
      • Attach all evidence! You must post all information and screenshots that you think may help you in your appeal. You will not be able to edit your first post after it is made, so make sure you include everything you think will help. There is a limit in the number of attachments per post, its OK to use subsequent posts to add more. Or make remarks on corrections to it. (you can only edit the post within a very short time of a minute or 2)
      • Make sure your Appeal thread is "Watched" (visible button on top right of the topmost post)
    3. Admin reviews evidence. After your post is made, an appeals admin will review everything that you posted.
    4. Admin requests more info
      • More info? The appeals admin may request additional information over the forums, or if the appeals admin deems the case complex, they may contact you via Steam messenger for an interview and investigation.
      • Provide info quickly.
        • Stay communicative. Keep an eye on your SteamRep forum inbox and "Watch" for email notifications.
        • When an appeals admin requests information over the forums and you do not respond to the appeals admins' request within 1 week, your appeal will be denied or marked invalid.
        • Review the Vacations and Offline process if you will be away.
    5. Optional 1-on-1 interview
      • For clarification: This is only available when the forum appeal is set to "under investigation", and the Admin deems it necessary/wanted.
      • If the appeals admin is processing the appeal via the forum, you may ask for a personal interview and investigation from the appeals admin at any time before the appeals admin rules on your case. The interview process may take up to four hours over multiple sessions.
      • If you request an interview, your case may be reassigned to another admin. If reassigned, your appeal will be placed into a queue. Cases are handled in the order received in these queues-- it is not uncommon for queued interviews to be delayed for many months.
    6. Decisions are final. Decisions will be rendered by the SteamRep admin once they receive ample evidence or once you fail to respond to them via the SteamRep forums within two weeks.
    Please note for hijacking/phishing appeals (mostly legacy tags):
    If your account was hijacked and you have recovered it and are appealing, you must post the following information:
    1. Screenshots of your entire conversation with Steam Support. Please cover game keys, credit card information, or other sensitive information.
    2. Screenshots of any trades that your account completed while it was hijacked.

    Regarding SRs new policies for 2016, Ref: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/119548

    For now, any appeals resulting from changes in policy will be treated as normal appeals. If the need arises to address them differently, we will make that determination and update this post/thread accordingly. If in the screening phase the appeal can be quickly dealt with (at admin discretion, not appealer) it will be handled at that time.

    Hijacking section repurposed since we mostly do not tag for it anymore/almost all of these appeals have been addressed. The old hijack appeal notes were added to the above guide.

    The new section is for "Change of Heart" appeals (SR banned tags only) for when users admit they committed offenses. We plan to slighly deprioritize these so we can more quickly address appeals where users claim the tag was applied incorrectly (previously was already done to an extent, but this just reaffirms it)

    SR appeal policy for victim repayment has been updated,

    Going forward, appealer must include full, uncropped, unedited chat with victim about repayment to have appeal considered.
