    6. What are your community's policies on scamming & scamming-related activities?
    Our community is constantly in the fight to stop people being scammed on our server. Our community has zero tolerance for scammers and anyone scamming is instantly banned. We prefer to prevent than to regret. This is why we have our server equipped with anti-scam plugins such as the SteamRep plugin. If a scammer manages to slip through our plugin security we always have admins online, in the server monitoring trades and activity.
    7. Why does your community wish to be affiliated with SteamRep?
    We are applying to be affiliated with SteamRep to help with the war against scammers; for our own sakes, and other communities’ sakes. As we are already a well-known and established TF2 community we thought it was time to do our part in protecting old and new communities and our own as we are expanding and growing fast. Being affiliated with SteamRep also forms a sense of comfort for new traders coming to our server as you are such a respected and trusted source. Becoming affiliated with SteamRep will not only be a positive just for our community but a lot of others we affiliate ourselves with, such as ON3 for example.

    The Kiwi Roo Gaming community has been around for 4 years now. Our community came to be when I (Dumpybear) decided to start my own group and server as a hobby when I wasn’t working. The server quickly grew into a thriving community and became much more than a hobby. Our primary goals are to create a safe and fun trading environment for all players on our server and as stated previous affiliating with SteamRep will only enhance this experience for our community and others.

    Looking at previous applications, most people have received replies within 24hours. It's been over 10days and we have still received no attention.

    I realise that, but there aren't many applications that didn't get responded to for over 10 days.

    There are a number of applications that don't receive replies. While some have comments by Community Admins or members, many haven't received a response from SR itself. It's all about patience, the SR Staff is quite busy and the Community Applications are at a lower priority then scam reports.

    Update to this. We are currently switching forum software to XenForo rather than MyBB, so you may notice some intervals of up and down time over the next day or so. Apologizes for the inconvenience.

    The conversion to XenForo is complete. We have a proper website under development.
  10. Update. We have had a server ip address change. 119.252.190.137:6000

    Just a quick update regarding Maddux, We have removed him as an admin as he is a marked scammer now on SteamRep which not only has become a shock to us but other communities. We thought he was a nice person, he didn't have scammer tag on steamrep for a while but since we removed him as admin, he has taken the forums with him because we removed his admin. I do believe JAG may have gone down because of this (if I am wrong I apologise).

    We will be trying to get the forums back up as soon as possible and try and keep you guys updated (if that's alright).

    Our community has been put under a lot of stress, so we apologize if anything is running slower than usual. Maddux was also trying to get the other owner of the server's pw by asking what the name of his pet was. He asked for his unusuals so he could get a ticket to Hawaii. lol..

    Thanks!
    Once again, apologies if this is a long a pots, just keeping you guys informed!

    Maddux never was an admin at JAG. He offered to help around the server with mapping etc, but never directly had anything to do with JAG (which went down before he was tagged).

    As a rule, the forum owner owns the community since he usually owns the url (and hence the name). That doesn't look too great.

    It's really not hard to setup a forum these days, most hosts have an automatic installer of sorts so it's just a few clicks and it's done for you. I'm aware there's some finer points to it, but the owner should be the one doing that, IMO. If you're absolutely struggling, read a book.

    Be careful, be smart and stay safe.

    Since i now own the URL, do i now "own" the community?

    To kiwiroo- set up the forums in 20 min, use mybb or drop the 140 on xenforo, since you were using my copy of xenforo, you now have to purchase your own.

    Maddux is trying to play you all, he's a HUGE time scammer and tbh I don't know why he's even allowed to post on these forums.
