Our Team Fortress 2 division servers all use the SteamRep SourceMod plugin to query the SteamRep API and ban anyone who has been marked as a scammer. Appeals and disputes to these bans can only succeed in the case where the SteamRep marking has been lifted. All bans in HG are global bans, meaning they are banned from all of HG's game servers.

We do not allow TF2 Moderators to have bad SteamRep reputations or offenses as they can serve as middlemen on our trade servers. - https://i.imgur.com/i11Muxd.png - https://i.imgur.com/c7jtDEj.png Additionally, players cannot hold raffles. Only Trusted Admins, such as our management can do so.

Appeals and disputes to these bans can only succeed in the case where the SteamRep marking has been lifted.Why does your community wish to exchange banners and become a Friend of SteamRep? The HG Team Fortress 2 division features four trading servers which we wish to further regulate and provide a scam-free and safe trading environment for players and traders.Tell us more about your community: HeLLsGamers is a multi-gaming community and clan, featuring Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Counter-Strike: Source, and Garry's Mod servers as well as SCP and other servers. HG was established on August 5th, 2005. HG institutes several policies regarding behavior, including the HG Anti-Harassment Policy as well as other general rules in order to provide for an inclusive and enjoyable gaming environment. All bans at HeLLsGamers require sufficient proof (note that some bans may not contain proof visible to non-leadership as it may be sensitive) and are reviewed by divisional management and above.Questions or Comments: In a previous application, it was noted that HeLLsGamers allows users to purchase Gold Membership ($15/month) which gives them some admin commands. We are able to do this because all bans require proof and are reviewed by our divisional management team. Our abuse report system is ironclad and allows for an investigative review to be undertaken by our leadership and internal affairs to determine whether or not the person was abusing. Anyone who abuses their gold membership and is determined to have done so in a manner worth revoking their adminship is permanently barred from purchasing it again. We offer VIP which does not have any admin-related commands for $10/month. Higher tiers above gold do not give access to any higher level of admin commands. Moderators are also allowed to take in-game action against gold members.
