    Do you have any examples of this? How frequently are you in Steam as opposed to other mediums such as Twitch and Twitter?

    We're verified on Twitch, Twitter and Discord, so not a lot of scammers there. The main point is steam, I have had multiple reports of both people threatening to get others banned using my name, saying "I'm at steamworks developer and will get you banned" using my name and photo etc. There have also been quite some cases with trade and link scammers.

    Optionally, we might fit better with the friend communities to have our developers shown as "trusted" on steamrep. While we are not a trading site, we actively track down cheaters and people playing with cracked versions etc.

    I was asking what other games you publish. Besides the one you linked in your application.

    In the matter of active impersonators, do you have any credible reports of your users being scammed in Steam as a result of someone claiming to be you? That seems to be your apparent primary motivation, but given the nature of your game I don't foresee very many traders interacting with you.

    I'm an extremely busy person, I don't have the time to spend my time on finding individual cases, taking screenshots and editing them to remove names etc. If you wish to help combat scammers and put a warning or trusted badge on my account, you can do that. If not, that's completely fine, and if so, delete this thread. Thanks.
