    Appeal for BANNED BY SR

    Steam profile: 76561198178896487 (Edgeworth)

    Appeal Plea: I committed the offense(s), I admit it

    Previous Appeals: No, this is my first appeal here

    Appeal description:
    A few years back in the Team Fortress 2 Subreddit, I posted a suspicious post that includes my profile link and a promise that i will give them free items if they give theirs to me, admittedly this is a scam, but you have to understand that before that, i was scammed by a person with the same thing that i was doing.
    I gave him items that i bought using my parent's money and believed that he was going to give me free items, but realizing that he scammed me, unfriended me, and blocked me, i was on a state of utter despair, I messaged steam support requesting their help in getting my items back, but was messaged that they cannot do anything about it, so in my naive mind, i thought to do the same thing he did to me to others.
    But even after i posted it, i did not scam anyone (nor is anyone foolish enough like me to fall into a trap like this), but i severely wanted items, to the point that i begged my friends to give me something, and upon realizing the mistake that i posted, my conscience even told me to give the thing i begged for to others.
    I know that the context behind why i scammed doesn't matter, and is merely a story if presented by me, but please realize that now that i am back after the break (i took a long break after the whole mess)and I will not scam nor try to scam anyone.
    I know my past actions does not justify the present me, but please reconsider on what i am now.​

    So was June 30th 2016 the last time you traded? I dont see any newer trades.
    The old ticket system still exists.

    is the help request history not the same as that link? i forgot the password on my support account and everytime i click the "Forgot Your password? you can reset it." button, it asks for my email then redirects me to https://help.steampowered.com/en/ and the only thing related to ticket history is the help request history at the very bottom.
    then when i try to access my old ticket through my email, it shows me that "The help request you are trying to view is no longer accessible because it was closed 60 days ago"
    Sorry for my incompetence but i can't find a way to access my old ticket, is there a way to ask steam support for the old ticket?

    Here are also my sources for some of my statements, one of them saying that Steam Support deletes tickets after 6 months, then another saying that you can find tickets in the help request history, both could be false, but the last picture made in 2016 (the earliest out the three) are the only one that told people that steam support doesn't delete tickets, so its either steam support updated after 2016 or somehow i couldn't find my tickets
