1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    So I was checking others' friend lists and I found a guy with 34 banned friends out of total ~300.
    And yet he's clean on SR.
    That really made me interested and I opened his profile.

    34 marked scammers.
    At least 3 unmarked yet with their reports pending.
    His two alts I could find are banned already.

    And why I made this is post is that he has loads, LOADS of SR MM impersonators!
    I counted at least 10 of them plus more profiles with the same profile picture so I'm pretty sure I'll find a SR MM nickname in the name history if I take a look.

    So, my question is, how to report all of them? Can I do it in one thread? Or should I make a separate thread against each of impersonators?

    The guy I'm talking about with clean acc.

    His alts
    http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198129971624 (same name&avatar in SR logs)
    http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198138401198 (clean acc is banned on tf2op for being this account's main acc)

    On what do you base it is an alt?

  4. Well, if this account that M'aiq is talking about is really his alt, then I think I can help in this situation if I can. Well, the thing I am talking about is when I clicked that profile, I found that his name was in Turkish "Nicki Değiştir Kanka".

    I guess you first think that "me" knowing Turkish is just nothing. No, I can really be useful here. If M'aiq is right that that account is alt, then the main account is possible a Turkish man. So, there's a possibility of him being Turkish.

    Well, still it looks like useless? Nope. Why? Because if the main account adds you guys but starts to talk with you guys a weird language (that I call Turkish) or adds his friends to your chat and starts the weird language there, well please contact me and Show me the screenshot of the chatlog, so I can translate it to English and help as possible as I can.

    If this was just an useless post, ignore it. But there is a possibility of it, so writing this can be useful.

    Thanks,

    Kaan

    When I posted above, I had already seen that "proof" on OP, I'm not convinced....

    Well, I though I could trust tf2op on this, so I didn't look into it very closely. Didn't tf2op staff have enough evidence on it, if they permabanned him?

    Another alt
    | steamname: WHİTE
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:88141178
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198136548085
    | customURL:
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198136548085
    Proof
    http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/690542
    Also, history of the buds here
    http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/20826546
    Also, same "Turkey" group they're in.


    Proof I could gather (it's not much though):
    #05 - Illision is there, one of the very first friends.
    #06 - WHITE is there too.
    http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198138401198?t=1403024920

    His steam acc, +rep from Illusion.

  8. So, they are all Turkish? I can help then :) (If you really want to.) Just contact me if needed.
  9. Wait, looking to TF2 and SR he is REALLY an alt of a scammer! So, making a report would be good right? I'll post the link of the report when I finish it.
  10. Should I report WHİTE for being alt like I did to illison?

    unfortunately, everybody can report everybody... with 190Million accounts, we will get 1.9x10^11! reports.

    lets just establish:
    - Everybody can report if he has been scammed or suspects somebody is a scammer.
    - Please provide solid proof and/or reasoning to the idea why you think he is a scammer.
    - understand that proof can be a quite wide range of things, from screenshots of chat/paypal/trade history, to item history on BP.tf/tf2outpost/tf2items.com, ingame screenshots, recorded demo's and videos, etc etc.
    - Understand that we do NOT like cropshots or edits. item history showing only the trade itself doesn't tell us anything. for that could have come from anywhere. It must be proven that the item came traded from YOUR profile or TO your profile...
    - understand that any proof that is shown within the steam communities we require shown within the steam browser.
    - understand that any proof on secured websites should show the full security feature in the browser url bar.

    What other changes besides the noticeable upgrade to the main SteamRep site, are in plan for this half of the year? (Which by the way, look far more helpful than before)

    When are the guides http://forums.steamrep.com/forums/steamrep-guides.22/ here finally be looked at for validity and accuracy? If I am not mistaken, some are outdated and others seem to not be 'correct'. Additionally, I find the most useful ones buried on the second page. Useful might not be appropriate here as I just realized that since they aren't categorized, it is hard to find what guide does what. While I understand community members can make any guide they wish, I would like it if it would be better to have guides relating to lets say, cash transactions be bundled in one 'area', guides over background checking in another and so forth.

    Looks bloody painful at the moment.

    Since you're redesigning the front page. I hope you add in "Pending/Under Investigation(or whatever it's called)" when viewing all my friends, so I can make notes for the future if they ever send me a trade.
    (By viewing all my friends, I mean when I view my steamrep page)

    Simple enough to find out: just check them out when trading, and do a search on SR, you will find all threads on them.

    But a more easier way to see if they have reports has other merits as well. But that functionality of showing reports is being discussed and still under change.

    Doesn't SR run on Valve Time too?

    Guide suggestions, that is a good idea, who's going to be the poor soul to volunteer to do it? :3

    We had you in mind....
  18. Hello there everybody, I am writing this because I want to talk about an accepted report that I think that is a little bit weird.

    Here's the report: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/...-counter-strike-global-offensive-items.77755/

    This report was accepted by @gencobra but there is something that I think weird. The victim made the report's catagory to "Steam Wallet Fraud" and in this catagory, you need to provide the trade offer that he sent and the chatlog (if there is any). But in this report, there isn't ANY screenshot or even a link to show an image either. So we don't even know that it was EVEN a trade offer scam.

    By the way None of the mods even marked it as "Ready for Review". And the weirdest thing is that, the report got accepted 7 minutes later when it the report created.

    I really think that this is a bit weird. Please answer me that if this is right or no. Thanks!
