    Thank you for your interest in becoming a Friend of SteamRep! Before you post your application, make sure that you have read this post and that your application matches the example application below.

    Friend Communities are those who meet the requirements, are approved, and have a banner on SteamRep. Partner Communities are those who meet the requirements, have already been a Friend Community for some time, and have a sufficiently mature/large community to warrant their own tags on SteamRep.

    Now accepting applications for Friend Communities! :)

    • Must be committed to stopping and preventing scammers.
    • Game server communities must have the SteamRep server plug-in running on all community trade servers for at least 60 days.
    • Must have Steam group with ONLY your community's administrators in the group.
    • All community administrators & moderators must have a clean reputation - even those that may not be actively moderating the trade servers.
    • Cannot be privately or publicly abusive to SteamRep staff
    • FOR EXISTING FRIEND COMMUNITIES ONLY: Please contact an SR Admin before submitting an application for tags as Partner Communities have more requirements not listed here.
    APPLICATION FORMAT(feel free to copy/paste this into your application):

    [​IMG] CommunityName

    a. Do you run Trade Servers? Please list the URL/IP of each server in your community that runs the SteamRep plugin and how many days each has been running it.

    4. Please list the URL of your Steam group containing your community's administrators.

    12. Please post your community's desired banner (if not already on SR). Banners should be 225x48. Example: [​IMG]


    Thank you for your application! :) Please be patient, as applications take time for the administration staff to process.

    Please note that communities which are international and/or which have several functions/features may take longer to process than other communities. Because of our relationships with various communities, all applications are considered very carefully and thoroughly. We thank you again for your patience.
