    Question 4 ties in with this.


    Your forums lack needed organization. See figure 1.

    While you have a large Community, a proper and organized forum is something that is needed.

    Oh? How come I wasn't aware. Hehe. Well...

    1. We use the Steam forums mostly now. Most people post on the support forums there and I entertain their requests if anything happens.

    2. Yeah, we didn't make a Steam group yet, sorry! (Joto should be doing it soon most prolly)

    3. We stop SR marked people from trading with the bots. If you try it, the bots actually query you first before trading. Our site is also quite secure, with authentication numbers whenever necessary.

    Thanks Hades for the points!

    The forum is actually organized if people use it the right way and use proper tag for their posts.
    I don't know if I could 'organize' it. However, I will move/delete posts that are not under the thread they should be and move all the similar questions/requests under the same thread.

    Really sorry about there being literally no reply from staff. Are you still interested? I know it's been a LONG while, I hope you don't hate us for it.

    Anyway, one problem. One of your staff members has 5 banned friends:
    | steamname: Monsieur Cara
    | steam3ID: [U:1:40917445]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:20458722
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198001183173
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/caramilk
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198001183173

    If you could ask them to clear those out, that would be great.
    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply. We have removed friends that are banned by SR. Is there anything else to do?

    That should be it for the time being. Thanks for the update. We're going to review your application. Expect to hear back relatively soon.

    Can you please give information on the inactivity of your administration. Seems like ,other than you, the other two on your staff has not been online in several months.

    Also is there a place that users can formally file an appeal/report for a ban?

    Furthermore we require a banner/link to SteamRep with your community as part of our banner exchange requirements.

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/caramilk -- He is the funder and bot developer of the site. He now opens Steam rarely because he wants to concentrate on writing codes (but I could contact him easily). I am handling all the PR and user support for him. He should be included in this application due to his impotance to the site.
    http://steamcommunity.com/id/ryaneus -- He is a community admin who handles some user support for me. I do not know him very well to begin with and no idea where he has went in these months. I believe it is safe to exclude him from this application.

    Users can formally appeal bans on https://dispenser.tf/forum/ but there is seldom the need for it. We do not ban many people ourselves (as SteamRep and Steam already handles this job for us, we just ban whoever SteamRep and Steam has banned).

    Here is our banner:
    [​IMG]

    Does the exchange requirement means that we need to reserver a place for the SteamRep banner? I do not see it on sites like outpost so I am not sure.

    Thanks again.

    Wanted to check out the site but got: http://files.steamrep.com/1/2015/05/2015-05-14_04-11-24.png

    The exchange is not really about banners, just linkbacks to users profiles if showing up (other's) profiles come up on the site in some form, like when showing a profile, that a link is there back to SR so people can check out their steamrep profile.
    Its more about integration then about showing our logo or w/e.

    oh, found out what caused the issue btw, nginx on dispenser.tf is a bit misconfigured. I have a plugin in my browser named "HTTPS Everywhere", that automatically changes the url's of configured sites to https in the browser, for dispenser.tf it would automatically change the url: http://dispenser.tf/ to https://www.dispenser.tf/ which doesn't work on the site. (small misconfiguration on the site of dispenser.tf)
    I've disabled that rule within the plugin.

    Sorry for the delay. Has your community significantly changed since Valve's changes to sending Steam gifts?

    With no reply from the owner, I'm going to decline this application.

    If you still wish to become a friend community, please submit a new application.
