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.

    A select few sites/partners on our front page list that may or may not do that anymore. You will have to check on those locations for someone that does.
    We don't list or give out users that would do that as we don't retain that information no longer.
    As for questions about trading you are welcome to ask anything you like as long as it doesn't pertain to getting direct information regarding another user.

    Same answer applies - SR doesn't get involved with pricing/value of items in anyway.
    You can find the answer to that question with those partner communities.

    How come RWC scams are unappealable? I was reading through ban appeals for fun and I noticed that you guys deny by policy for RWC scams, even if the offender was very young and has most likely changed from when the scam happened. How come RWC scams are any different to normal scams?

    IIRC you can appeal them as long as it's not the "change of heart" appeal reason type. Whether that makes sense or not as a policy is up to the admins to decide, I can't say that I fully agree with it, but I can see the reasoning why it's in place.

    Hi guys I do have an appeal ongoing to try and reduce my punishment from a banned to caution.(This is not a bumper for my appeal by any means, just need some clarification regarding trading whilst having a steamrep ban) In the meantime whilst I want to purchase items hats, etc can i get my IRL Friend to get the hat and then trade it to me whilst I make the payment. Will it affect him? Although I desire the hats I do not want to affect anyone else and cause them to be tagged as my alt causing them the trouble. The reason I'm asking is because I recently looked at marketplace.tf and was interested in purchasing a hat from : https://steamcommunity.com/id/Hunion/ (Great guy BTW helped me out alot)
    I told him that I am banned on steamrep making it clear to him as I don't want to cause anyone trouble. Whether he is still comfortable trading with me. Unfortunately there's a ruling in backpack.tf stating that he can't trade with me because of the steamrep ban. After reading articles on backpack.tf I see that traders are held to a high standard of 3 strikes of trading with people who have a steamrep ban. Are there any ways temporarily where I can purchase items and maybe trade without causing the seller or another friend any issues just because of my foolish mistake in the past? As I can easily get a friend to purchase the item on behalf and trade it to me, I do not want to cause him to be tagged as an alt or anything. Please advice. Cheers!

    SteamRep no longer tags for trading with a marked/Banned user.

    Partners may block/ban you from their services but not tag you for it IE: BF.TF bans for it if you do beyond a certain amount/value - see their policy with regards to that.

    I have a question about your second appeal policy.

    Just recently I tried to reappeal for some stuff I did 8 years ago. I appealed 8 years ago, when I still had the mindset of 8 years ago (being 12 years old). My appeal was automatically declined due to this previous appeal.

    Doesn't this seem counterintuitive? This just doesn't make sense to me, so if you guys have a good explanation for it that might help me come to terms with it. However, I simply do not understand this policy and everyone I have talked to also does not understand it.

    You do not interpret the TOS, the admins do NO POSTINGS or UNLINKING of your account from your forum profile is possible.

    asked and answered, NO.
    I will be happy to ban your forum account if you so choose, that is your only option for "closing" your account. Nowhere does it say or imply closing an account also means removing everything related to the account.
