    @Fred JonesTheMemeLord I am not going into our defunct appeal policy with you, its already clearly explained as to why we chose this route for these old tags. Your thread was archived because your appeal was swapped over to the new appeal system for such tags, that's the only reason, it has absolutely nothing to do with your thread "not being finished" so please dont characterize it as being as such. Furthermore, I am not going to address the merits of any specific case(s) with you as that is not allowed in the general discussion section. And finally, we make clear defunct tag decisions are final and not appealable. I understand you are unhappy that your defunct tag appeal was DENIED and that is why you are now posting here complaining about it. If our policy changes in the future, we will notify such users, until then, nothing can or will be done for you at this point, you have fully exhausted all avenues of relief regarding your tagging. You committed a serious offense, fake middleman scamming, that's the long and short.

    I suggest you add -GoV- !!

    I wrote a appeal on their website 1 year ago, with no response from -GoV- at all. And since i can't get my SR tag away b4 i get rid of the GoV tag, there's nothing I can do.
    -GoV- died a long time ago, It's barely even a TF2 Community.

    I may sound desperate, but please, take a look at their appeals forum
    http://www.wantedgov.it/ban-appeals/
    http://www.wantedgov.it/ban-appeals/ban-appeal-sweggie/

    the 2nd link, is my appeal. It's the only appeal that's been there, the past 1,5years. And there is nobody answering.

    This is 100% a legacy community, which no longer exist.

    I'm not sure if anyone will read this since it is such an old post, but I not received anything and I clicked the appeal button well over 3 months ago. I submitted a written appeal about 2.5 months ago since I had already waited around 3 months at that time and was told to wait. My ban on Tf2OP is probably 7 to 8 years old now, and I'd really like it removed for trading purposes. I just want to know if my case is being handled or if it's just sitting there.

    I have looked into the status of the defunct tag, I see it is indeed still pending, you did everything correct in submitting it. The system is set so after a certain amount of time, if its still pending with no admin action be it grant, deny, stay, the tag will be automatically downgraded (currently six tags that would be affected by this, yours is not one of them tho). I am not 100% sure if that is set as active currently as I am not the admin who usually deals with those particular tags. I will followup with them and make sure they are addressing the tags or the system is turned on and working. I hope this addresses your concern as best I can. Feel free to comment again if you do not have an updated status in a month.

    Good evening, guys. I appealed some time ago. I'm not rushing anyone, but can you find out the approximate waiting time?
    Many years have passed since the punishment. The site is no longer working. I'm not a thief.

    Will I receive email notification under any circumstances? I am a doctor. I have to leave for two weeks. Or wait here? I'm confused = (

    My previous reply to another user was an explanation of how the system works/was working internally, not an open invitation for everyone to ask for a status update. No, your case does not meet the criteria as outlined previously yet. Please do not ask again.

    Going forward, all such requests from any users will not be addressed/answered here.

    I believe the SR policy on legacy bans and the mechanism for removal or adjustment is fair and rooted in sound methodology.

    There are many past incidents that I feel have potentially run their course. Certainly "spy crab runner" for a few refined and suchlike should not perforce be a forever sentence, and yes certain "scams" should eternally be a chain of shame around a scammers neck.

    As a senior previous senior TF2 Trader Admin, and GOV Admin and GU Australia Admin and SR MM, I approve of how SR is handling legacy tags.

    I do still hold a lot of screenshots and documentation related to many bans via SR in years past, and such information is always available to my SR friends, who have always done fantastic work over the years.

    I hope each and every one of you who is appealing some previous ban here, is genuine and that you have grown and moved on from whatever mistakes you made in the past.

    Shout outs to Matie, sjru, horse and others.
