    Your alt account field was left empty. Do you have any other Steam accounts, or do you have any accounts that might potentially look like yours such as a sibling or real-life friend who shares your internet connection?

    You can disclose Steam accounts to us privately with the following BBCode:

    I like how your content depends and promotes witch hunting which is a pretty disgusting behavior for someone that wants to be a steamrep affiliate which is a pretty high title. You have witch hunted marketplace.tf and scrap.tf staff and manipulated your viewers into thinking that they are the worst people in the entire human race.

    Another issue, you have also manipulated your viewers into thinking a user by the steam name of pablo.donkeybong.2009 was impersonating you and decided to make a witch hunt and sent every viewer to report him on backpack.tf/issues without a single trace amount of proof. Further evidence shows that he was never impersonating you according to historical name data provided by steamrep.

    Those videos created were well deserved. What went on with scrap.tf was horrible and needed to be exposed to the public.

    And I can confirm with you Pablo did impersonate and scam my fan for items, another steam account was used to pose as my account. There is an entire videos and his friends were there to witness and some of the people in his group emailed me and left saying they didn't support what he did.

    No idea why you're supporting a scammer who manipulated a child but have a nice day.

    No first of all, I don't clickbait, clickbait doesn't work in 2021 since watchtime is the most important statistic for videos to do well and actually, this is so my fans and members of the community get warned that people are impersonating me to avoid people being scammed. Have a nice day. ;)

    I don't believe someone who actively witch hunts others, waste backpack.tf mods valuable time through encouraging reports to be made against an individual with no evidence, and promoted gambling sites to his young audience deserves any partnership.

    ^^^^^ this.
    You literally did everything wrong which was possibly doable in a wrong way.

    Another extremely funny thing about you is that you used to charge (no idea if you still do) members for BASIC permissions like posting images in your discord.
    It all just reflects how greedy you are for money, just like your youtube videos.
    Rest was mentioned already.

    Hau rein digga, in failure we pray.

    Lol.

    I don't know why steamrep would affiliate themselves with someone who is so desperate for views that they go as far as creating completely nonsense evidence to create drama and content to get their name out there.
    - Falsely claiming users of the community to be pedophiles with cropped and easily faked discord screenshots
    - Claiming to know the details behind an update due to talking to a steam admin over discord, who had since supposedly deleted all his messages - but oh wow you happen to have the chat logs copied and pasted!!
    - You've also had no issue with working with some incredibly scummy individuals to "expose" individuals and groups in the community on virtually no grounds whatsoever
    - And of course... clickbait
    - I have no idea how you can deny that you do this, let's take a look at some of your most recent video titles
    - TF2 is at WAR
    - Why TF2 Bots Can't be Fixed
    - TF2 Update Confirmed! (with a happy heavy in the thumbnail)
    - TF2 Bot Free Casual Mode

    Oh, and I almost forgot. You lock your primarily 13 year old fanbase behind a paywall for basic discord functions. Yeah.

    You've got no chance in hell. Go find somewhere else to exploit your influence on others, loser.

    I would just like to add that you've been sponsored by a tf2 gambling site as recent as october 2020 it seems, so that goes against the criteria as well

    Yes, when I was a small channels I took a stupid sponsorship, however I did cut them off and stopped supporting them a long time ago as well as making videos against it and privating nearly all videos mentioning them.

    Whether I am desparate for views or not is your personal opinion, I make content to entertain the community. I have never created 'nonsense evidence' so please find some proof of this before accusing me of that. I already addressed the Maximilianmus thing and he wasn't exposed by critical until after I worked with him. Not gonna take responsibility for his actions. If virtually no grounds is someone in the community trying to dox, blackmail, ddoss and be a self proclaimed pedophile I don't know what grounds you expect. It's funny how all the video titles you listed are the content shown in the video, clickbait is when you say one thing I'm the title and then the video is something else. Clickbait doesn't work on YouTube in 2021 since the algorithm likes watchtime. If my videos were clickbait my videos wouldn't be promoted by YouTube so heavily. The paywall thing is a lie, all perms were unlockable by leveling up in chat. The option to skip levelling was there and helped us host our 1000+ giveaways, even though most of that came from our pockets. I am not exploiting my influence here, I have been getting impersonated and scammers are out for my fans. I was actually contacted by an admin of this website to make this application to help the community. Don't know why having a warning for impersonators on my profile hurts you so much to spend the time to write that :)

    Ok. Let's start with the supposed confirmation you got from the admin Jill.

    Video link with timestamp:


    Here, you claim a member of valve, possibly a steam admin, gave you exclusive information on the details of an upcoming TF2 update.

    Their profile link:
    https://steamcommunity.com/id/poJilloy/

    Of course, making such claims is already incredibly suspect, discord logs are hardly usable evidence at all given how easily they are faked; nonetheless, you seem to think of them as non-negotiable absolute proof of whatever they may show (Twi pedophile).

    Putting my suspicions aside, what you're saying can still be easily proven wrong.

    You claimed that this user, Jill, had very strong affiliations with valve, given how they "added a lot of medals into the game, self-made items".
    This user has not added a single item to the game. All their items, whether self-made or genuine, come from simply participating or moderating TF2 tournaments. https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Tournament_Medal_-_Moscow_LAN

    As for your claim that this user is a steam admin, that's also untrue.

    Here is the profile to the actual steam admin, also conveniently named Jill:
    https://steamcommunity.com/id/tehjill/

    You might say that these two users are alts of each other, but that's completely ridiculous given their different geographical locations and steam history. So this Russian friend of yours is evidently a different person.
    Now, you might say that this user also happens to conveniently be a steam admin with the same name. Why, then, does he seem to have no ties with valve whatsoever other than his tournament experience and why is he not present in this group? https://steamcommunity.com/groups/Valve/members

    [​IMG]
    Also happened to come across this, very curious as to why this random steam user would not only have access to such classified information on a future update and contact you of all people through such informal means

    Accidentally hit post reply before I could finish the response, but oh well.

    You clearly faked these discord chats and put some random steam user with a similar name to the genuine steam admin in place to seem more legitimate. And you always have the convenient excuse for if I go add your Russian friend, which I will, that he's denying it to keep whatever this classified bullshit information you acquired from leaking. Unfortunately there's no definitive proof, but what can you do.

    Take your time reading this since I know it's a lot to take in, at least for certain people.

    It looks like this application has derailed from its original purpose, into a personal argument, with all of the relevant points having been made already as far as I can tell. Pointing out problems with integrity of some content, sponsorships, or public accusations made by the applicant is ok, and some valid points have been made, but some of the replies have been downright disrespectful. Please stick with the facts when posting about this or any other applicants and their respective histories, and don't use Notable Affiliate applications as a platform to debate the merits of someone's credibility or argue definitions of terms they or you use to describe them. You're free to criticize SteamRep itself, but personally attacking applicants to our affiliate programs discourages people and groups from applying with us in the first place.

    Out of respect for the applicant, and to prevent the thread from getting (further) derailed over multiple pages before our staff has a chance to catch up and review all the points made from both sides, I am going to lock the thread temporarily. When it's unlocked again, I expect everyone here to participate in either a more civil manner, or not at all. @WAMO At any time, if you have something to add, you can report this post to request your thread be unlocked, and it will be re-opened.
