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.

    Are you aware SR has a API that the website can use to check the users SR status?

    lets just say:
    - dota2traders (auto bans scammers)
    - tf2wh (auto bans scammers)
    - tf2backpack (auto shows tags)
    - SR forums (on mouseover over the ID64 it shows the tags)
    - tf2outpost (auto bans scammers)
    - dota2outpost (auto bans scammers)
    - various trading bots check SR for scammer tags and refuse to trade with them.
    - ~450 trade/game servers use the plugin to the API to auto rename or ban scammers.
    and a crapload of other sites are using the api


    and you think we worry about that? just call it only on the person browsing, not on everybody that is on a page. So at first connect to the website the user is checked, and if marked: action.

    There is no need to check all of them daily, just when these that connect check the status at the time they come to the site (say time out from last session of 30 or 60 minutes or some)

    Ofc you can exaggerate with checking everybody at every page, and that would end up in a lockout and there is no need for that anyways.

    Haha funny you have lots of traffic aren't you cute? So do many other trading sites, yet they aren't impersonated as much. Your community is being impersonated because you've done nothing to fight it.

    You have known about this issue for quite some time - do something about this. You need to create some measure to reduce impersonations, including spreading awareness of impersonators on your website and actually reporting those, as well as educating your community about how to detect impersonators.

    It says on your profile and your steam groups that you are a mod of the site, so why aren't any of the admins/owners from your community replying to this thread, or for that matter making this thread (that is, unless I misunderstand the administrative structure of your community)?

    Well usually when you want to affiliate your community with something, it's best that the actually creators/owners are aware of it. Do they even know that you created this? I suggest you get one to comment here.

    It would be preferable if the owner approved this application.

    Can you confirm whether or not you are using the SteamRep API to ban scammers on your site? D2L was granted access to the beta web API, but I never received confirmation if you were doing that.

    It would help the community a lot if you would implement that soon. There are scammers active right now on Dota2Lounge that we receive scam reports about.
  19. When i first read this report. I went to the accepted section of steamrep forums, two previous reports were filed and accepted that the trade originated from Dota2lounge.com - Even after the report was filed and accepted, the person was still up and trading those items on Dota2lounge.com

    Reports like the one i've posted below are EVERYWHERE on csgolounge.com - When I originally got into the CSGO Trading community, i started CSGORep to try and stop things like this. One of the main groups I tried to contact and hopefully work with was this community. After asking what they had planned for scammers/marked users - THey said "Thanks for the idea to put in a "SteamRep" Button - People can search for themselves. WE ONLY CARE ABOUT OUR BETTING SYSTEM". Awesome well im glad your betting system works, im glad yall are profiting or whatever from it. EVERYTIME I've seen something like the report below, i add one of the owners. Just to have it ignored.

    Grats on your site being visited constantly. That seems to be the only thing youre interested and proud of with your community.

  20. Finally speaking with someone of Dota2Lounge today. I was told that you need to file a report within our forums, then when you hit the report feature. we will know to search the forums for your post. We then act from that.

    Well they have 23+ pages of reports, probably 1/4(im being generous) are not resolved nor does it appear anybody has touched base with the victim on the matter.
