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've been getting invites from a bunch of "Competitive Players". Which is a new type of thing for me so im not entirely sure whether it is legit or not. I haven't clicked any links or whatnot that they've posted because I don't click links I haven't already had in my browser before.

    But what they all have in common is that they ask for my tf2 class main, and post a link to a site for "competitive gaming".

    Not sure if links are allowed so im just gonna post a screenshot. Since I don;t know whether or not its a scam attempt I am not reporting this. Just want a little insight.
    (I've been dealing with things like this for like 2-3 years now, but this one is really new to me).

    Phishing attempt - report the user to Valve and remove them if you feel its a bad link in anyway.

    "Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion." - Well you do delete content, under your own discretion. What do I have to do to have this deleted then?

    You need to make contact using the Contact Us link at the bottom.
    You asked about deleting account, deleting what you posted and we will not do that as in staff here.
    So you will need to make a Contact us attempt and explain exactly in great detail as to why you wish to have this request and then be patient and wait for a response.
    Thanks!

    Do not bump your appeal, and do not use this thread to talk about your appeal.

    What do I do when multiple scammers (both banned on SteamRep) are trying to get revenge on me by repeatedly bombarding my CashRep with -reps??? One of them is a higher level, has more years of experience, and WAY more CSGO hours than me and makes it look like I scammed him out of a knife when in reality, HE scammed ME out of it. I'm desperate at this point.

    Steamrep is not affiliated with CashRep. You should ask your questions there.

    Hello. Does steamrep accept reports with Russian chat? And the screenshots I also have in Russian. Or should I translate them into English and send them?

    We can't accept either sorry. Accepting reports in other languages would require that we maintain staff who speak those languages. What if the user appeals their ban in 4 or 5 years time? We have to have staff available to be able to handle that. Also, we unfortunately can't trust user provided translations, since we can't verify their accuracy.

    Thanks for the answer. I am a representative of the Russian community. I am sure that Russian users are also often deceived. And I believe that they also deserve justice. Can I help you with checking Russian reports? I fully assure you of the honesty of my work and we could discuss this cooperation

    Sorry, we only accept reports in English and the evidence must be in English due to policy we've had in place for years.
    You are welcome to report to Valve instead.

    @Festive Kirliazkrieg You have received three warnings.

    1. For asking a question for a third time after it has already been answered.
    2. For inquiring about a specific appeal in an unrelated thread.
    3. For bumping your appeal in: https://forums.steamrep.com/threads...-kirliazkrieg-sop-caution.191917/#post-516418

    Any further infractions may result in a forum cooldown or ban being placed on your account. Please read all the rules and guidelines for each forum BEFORE posting.


    Update:
    The warnings given above have been rescinded by a SteamRep admin. I would like to apologize for issuing them in the first place. You were right to inquire here, as your situation is unique and deserves a response.
