    1. SteamRep Integration
    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.

    We do not run any type of online servers or some kind of plugin use.

    b. Do you run a trade-related web application or community? List the URLs of the sites that run the SteamRep Web API and how many days each has been utilizing the API to block or mark scammers.

    We use the Facebook group function. Members report the person that violates our rules we have written in the group description for all to see. If a trader gets scammed, he/she must post within the group or send a private message to an admin and show us proof of the scam, time, date and who is was and what kind of items got stolen. Often people send us screenshots on their private message with the scammer.

    2. Have you made any modifications or changes to the SteamRep plugin or are you running an unofficial plugin? If so, please explain.

    No we do not use any kind of plugins.

    3. Please list the URL of your community's Steam group.

    We do not have a steam group for the purpose of hate we have gotten for banning rulebreaking people/scammers. Group was removed years ago.

    4. Please list the URL of your Steam group containing your community's administrators.
    5. Please list ALL admins (not in the above group) and/or moderators of your community below with links to their SteamRep profile (e.g. HelenAngel - http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197977521239)

    7. Why does your community wish to exchange banners and become a Friend of SteamRep?

    Counter-Strike should be fun to play, no matter what rank you have, who you are or what kind of skill level you're in. Same thing should be within trading. We want a community with trusted people and safe trading. With steamrep's help/partner, we can step up another level and make one step closer to our eutopia. Many people in our community doesn't know about steamrep at all. Imagine what your tutorials and help can matter if we worked togeather! We want the same thing, banish the scammers & trolls for a better world. We will also make commercial for steamrep on all of our media of course.

    11. Please provide additional details about your community such as how it came to be, how long it has been around, the primary goals of it, what it does, etc.

    The group LBLF was founded by another community with the same name. Their Facebook group was open for all and got raided, just because. Facebook Immediately shut down their community, so an admin from that community reopened the group after 2 weeks of inactivity. Members re-joined again and peaked 300 new members the same day. That was around October month year 2014. (could not find specific date)

    29th of December, year 2014. I became admin. That was the same date i joined the group because i applied for the administrator roll before joining. After a 6 month the owner were in debt for a company, so i bought he's group, became owner and have been running the group since!

    Our primary goals is to inform and spread all kind of CS:GO media to the members . steam/CS:GO Updates, gameplay, streamers, trading, frag videos and more!

    The sponsors we have right now in the banner is the sponsors I have gotten for my company WickedYouth.com.

    CS:GO Sverige, lite bättre, lite finare.

    CS:GO Sweden, abit better, abit finer.

    The other group does not need translation
    CS:GO Coins & Skins (Sverige)

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

    Temporary banner added. I have our logo in .png format but my designer is on holiday right now.

    Thank you for reading! Hope we can do something good in the future togeather.

    Hi man! I was actually the last guy a scammer tried to impersonate! Everyone from the community teams up and togeather we report the impersonator on facebook so he's account gets deleted. Minimum 15 guys helped me to report that account and the account was taken down 1 hour later. If I do not notice the impersonator/fake accounts, the members will and they will notify me or other admins/mods. They will tag the real person right away and tell them whats going on as well! The community is great in that matter.

    I took a screenshot when the account were deleted by Facebook and posted in every CS:GO Sweden FB groups so people knew the account was gone. We also found out the impersonators name was Robin and came from the southern part of Sweden. Some guys wanted to do a home visit but I told them to not do it because violence is not what we stand for.

    SteamRep Admin:
    Thank you for applying to be a SteamRep Friend community. Having discussed your application internally, we decided it's best if we go our separate ways.

    While I commend you for the size of your community, it's still run in a platform completely outside of Steam, with no accountability for impersonation, and no way to truly know who's who. We think that encouraging anyone to use Facebook for Steam trading poses an unjustifiable risk. It's a lot friendlier to scammers because of that separation, giving them plausible deniability when it comes to our own reports as well as an easy way to disappear or redirect hate to an innocent impersonation victim when caught. While it's unlikely you're doing so maliciously, scammers sometimes encourage victims to negotiate over Facebook for that very reason, and your group would be a match made in heaven for them. That is to say nothing of Facebook's general response to impersonation reports, or your community's need to brigade reports for anything to maybe happen.

    We wish you well on your endeavors to keep the community safe.
