    Appeal description:
    Greetings all,
    Last year sometime (not entirely sure, memory is fuzzy) I created this alt because a friend of mine had been impersonation scamming with a degree of success and I wanted to try it at the time (I was TF2-poor, you could say). I attempted to scam someone out of an unusual, but luckily the person was smarter than I thought and asked for a middleman so I abandoned ship and didn't log into the account for ages. In May 2014, however, my main account was VAC banned (for circumstances out of my control) so I logged on to this account and discovered the SteamRep ban after I attempted to use TF2Outpost. I no longer have any intent to scam because I realize that it is very wrong and hurts the victim (I was quick-switch scammed on my main due to a naive mistake a while back), and I would just like to play TF2 and trade normally.

    Thank you for your time in reading and considering my appeal.​

    I have no additional accounts that I am aware of, the Steam account that I am using here and my main Steam account are the only ones I have control of.
    Did I incorrectly link my main account? I copied the ID block from the SteamRep page and annotated it's use.

    Whoops, I must've misread that last part (read it as accounts you have shared with friends, I've never done that). I have a brother who uses the same Wi-Fi connection as me (but not the same computer).

    His steam ID block (from SteamRep):
    | steamname: Another Squid
    | steam3ID: [U:1:117723000]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:58861500
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198077988728
    | customURL:
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198077988728

    It also seems that he's SR banned for being an alternate account of... me? That's incorrect, as far as I know :/

    EDIT: It seems he has his account set to "Friends only", I asked him to change it. I think it'll be a few minutes before it refreshes.

    I am aware of this, however no actual scamming took place (if you read my appeal). I could apologize to the person who I tried to scam, but it's been so long (almost a year I think) and I don't have the faintest idea of what their name was.

    Is there any chance of a reply soon? It's rather frustrating to be banned from TF2Outpost and many trading servers when I haven't truly scammed anyone :/

    EDIT: went through the guidelines again, didn't realize that there's no way to hurry up my appeal. sorry about that

    I apologize for the bump, but being SR banned is having a great impact on my trading career.

    I would appreciate if someone would look at this.

    Thanks

    Any chance this could be looked at? It's been more than 2 years since the ban, I just want to trade normally...

    I recently unboxed a nice unusual (Spooks Specs with Haunted Ghosts) and it's incredibly frustrating to not be able to go on many trade servers or use TF2 Outpost. I'm limited to trading with a few real-life friends on steam and having to go through 15 minutes of explaining my tag when I want to buy a few unique weapons is a pain.

    I know there's nothing I can do to speed my appeal process but I'd appreciate if someone at least replied.

    Thanks

    Sorry to bump again (this will be the last time I promise), but I've thoroughly searched and have been unable to find any sort of report or case against me. This is a little strange considering that tagging someone for impersonation with intent to scam would likely need some kind of proof post

    Hi,

    I will be moving into the dorms at my university soon and won't have access to my main PC during the transitional period.

    I'll likely have mobile data service or McDonald's wifi so I'll probably still be able to view/reply to this thread, however I won't have my desktop set up

    Start date: August 6th 2016
    Likely end date: August 11th 2017
    Reason: moving residence
