    6. What are your community's policies on scamming & scamming-related activities?
    Instant ban from our servers & we recommend the scammed party submit a report on the SteamRep forums. We do not tolerate any scamming.

    7. Why does your community wish to exchange banners and become a Friend of SteamRep?
    Let's face it, almost all of us have been either scammed or had attempts at being scammed. We hate that, and want to rid the TF2 community of such filth. However without everyone stepping in and reporting these users nothing will happen! This is why we want to become a friend of SteamRep, we have the player base, and a huge amount of members in our clan & servers who feel the same way.

    We have over 20,000 connections per day to our servers, that's 20,000 SteamRep checks, which users are marked as scammers in our servers, and players are warned not to interact with them in the terms of trading.

    We also used to be a trusted community over a year ago, we stopped running the SR plugin in our servers since we moved to CS:S, & CS:GO servers mainly, but we made the jump back into TF2 and we're a 100% dedicated TF2 clan. For this we hopefully wish to re-gain our status as a Trusted /Friend of SteamRep.

    10. Please provide a link to your community's stats page, hlstatsx or GameMe (if applicable).
    http://stats.degree-gaming.com/

    11. Please provide additional details about your community such as how it came to be, how long it has been around, the primary goals of it, what it does, etc.
    I think most of that was covered in question #7. However here's a bit more:

    We came to be in March 2008, in CS:S running surf servers & death run servers. We moved slowly over to TF2 around 2011 because of it's popularity. We're a large clan with a small clan family atmosphere. Almost every Admin + Management member knows every member and we aim to do that to provide unity.

    Our primary goals are obviously world-tf2 domination (just kidding). We want to give back to the community since we're such a large & well known TF2 clan. We do this by holding almost daily giveaways where we give out free hats, keys, ect...

    12. Please post your community's desired banner (if not already on SR).

    When taking a peek at your site, I found these.

    In the donation page.

    Aswell as the front page

    Are you guys still selling "admin", or have you discontinued that? If you are selling admin though, then that is highly frowned upon if you're trying to apply here.

    Are all your admins universal admins (ie. also carry out trade admin duties)?
    If no, do you have a separate group for trade admins?

    We have divisions of admins. Management and Regular admins. If there's a specific trade related issue that's been reported Admins will notify Management and in turn Management will notify me promptly so we as a collective group can take a non-biased look into the case and resolve it.

    This is taking quite a long time. We're going on 4+ months now.

    Patients is a thing my friend. There are multiple communities waiting longer than 4 months. The admins will take a further look into it once they have time.

    Almost a year and no response from any administration? Has this site just been completely forgotten?

    You mean how they don't work at all? SteamRep had a good presence for a while, back in the middle of TF2's days but now this site is just dead. No administration, nothing. I'm amazed that you still have the small amount of users you have.

    I've just deleted steamrep from all my servers and don't want to be associated with SR anymore. If it's going to take 2+ years for anyone's threads to be looked at, that shows me how little the people who run this actually care or want to better the TF2 community.
