    13) Do you have any interest in eventually becoming an SR Admin? If so, what kinds of things would you like to do?

    You are stating you love trading but you are not very active on any trading site and neither does your backpack really amount to a lot of trading(from what I can tell). How would you describe your experience with trading and your knowledge of common scams?

    I've been a victim of a scam that's why my backpack value is low. I've been trading since I started tf2 and the only site I use is BP.tf but I'm never logged in on it. I know the common scams are middleman, steamrep admin scam and opskins scam.

    I would also describe myself as a low tier trader that has the experience of a mid-high tier trader.
