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.

    http://www.reddit.com/r/SteamGameSwap/wiki/hownottogetscammed There's a lot of information here about what you could do to protect yourself from a scam, and there are several warnings throughout our FAQ (including that page) about deals that are too good to be true.

    Work on your grades, dude. You'll get GTA and an education.
  2. hmmm... i guess so. i will just wait for my dad. but i will use that "trading" method as a backup.
    but this really doesn't feel right. what do you say? this guy said, his pc cannot run GTA V and he have dying light and COD ghosts in his wishlist. i think i will only use the trade as a last resort.

    I would highly advise against trading with gifted games, pure and simple, he's able to chargeback or otherwise scam you. Ultimately, if you have any doubts about the character of a person with whom you're possibly going to trade, then I advise straying away from any risk.
  4. Well, i do not doubt the personality of this person. he is very friendly indeed. but i just had bad experiences (2 times) so i am really afraid about it.

    Being friendly isn't the same as being trustworthy. You should only risk trades with those who you can trust, not who is nice.

    So on my steam report page I reported my friend for attempting to scam me. Though then he gave it to me and I realized how stupid I was, since he was just referring to a scam video we watch when he was at my house. How do I delete the pending report and or can you cancel it?

    If you made the report on Steam, then you can't do any with it anymore.

    Hey I've been waiting for coming up on a year now for my appeal to be handled here, do you have any idea when a verdict will be reached?

    Looked around for a bit and couldn't find an answer for this:

    If one is SR marked and yet also has pending SR reports against him/her still, would he/she have to wait until his/her pending reports are concluded before appealing?

    My personal opinion is that those reports would be evaluated as evidence for the appeal. And it would depend on the timing. For instance, if Person A were banned 5 months ago, then appealed, and then has a report from a week ago and that evidence proves conclusive, I'd decline the appeal.

    The appeals admin will review all reports filed against the appellant (even archived ones), which is part of why appeals take so long. If there's solid evidence in report(s) made since the time the tag was applied, the appeal is very unlikely to be granted.

    This thread has been re-branded (for lack of better term) to accommodate the staff as a whole instead of just the moderation team.

    It needed review and FAQ entries written with it, and a new topic after that.. didn't have time to do so yet... 33 pages is a bit too much, and to be able to expand the FAQ with all these questions makes it easier for people to find their issue.

    Was planning to use the Expanded FAQ and split it up and have multiple Expanded FAQ's for specific topics. But redoing all that and integrating this, rereading the entire topic for questions not in our faq etc is a lot of work.
