    Obviously it's a mistake, but I figured I would let it be known.

  2. Looks like so many people donated after this announcement. Still not enough money to buy VALVe for tradebans and making duplicates for scammed victims? :p

    Great announcement actually. I love that donations are back and I hope to donate soon. Also 1 question since you changed the "BANNED BY X" mark. Does the time of the ban changes the appeal prodecure? For example, someone was banned by SteamRep 1000 days ago and another person was banned by SteamRep 100 days ago. I'm really curious about this.

    P.S Is Vo0's TF2 backpack value is enough for Tier X? :)

    Thanks much for letting us know. Another bug in a plugin we bought-- will see if the author can fix it. Sorry for any confusion it caused.

    No real difference planned here for appeals at all. It's just FYI data. We're still seeing how well this works out to display that, though. In some cases it may not be perfectly accurate (i.e. too short) because we might have decided the ban belonged to the wrong community or something (and changed the tag).

    nah, it just means that forever is till January 1, 1970. I barely remember that day, but I think it was a Thursday. My mother and me went to 2 birthdays that day.
  5. Not only trade bans, also duplicating items and refunding them back to scammed victims. :)

    Finally, some upgrades. I also like the addition of the trusted sellers page. Looking forward to a new chapter in Steamreps history :D.

    It was an old thing, not an addition. I removed it.

    So basically TLDR:
    We changed a bunch of stuff, not making the reporting process any faster or adding more admins ..... But now we can take your money so we got that going for us which is nice.

    This was all not needed, only thing needed is a faster response to the reported scammers.

    I have reports outstanding of 6+ months with all the screenshots etc. added....

    But cool that you can now take our money !!!!

    Have you ever thought about the fact that SR provides its API to communities so banned users can get banned from those community websites and servers as well? Do you think it does not require anything except for 1$ per year shared hosting? Do you really consider covering the expenses of running SR money "going for us"? If you do, then I really think you should not be writing any TLDR because your understanding of this stuff is very poor.
    If you want, we can disable donating for you - just to make sure your money does not go to SR.

    Good job. But remember one thing. Banned players are waiting 2 years for your decision. Nice job

    At first there was no appeal procedure at all, that we are willing to review our decisions, should say some already.
  19. If you read the thread carefully, they said that they added a new admin which is Clive.

    Oh, so you think that education new players in Steam about scamming methods and avoiding them is useless or not worth a 0,02 cent? I can actually accuse you for participating for fraud to attempting to take down the education, so that scammers can scam new people since they know nothing about scamming. :p (Not a happy : P face.)
