    SteamRep Head Admin Council will look into this. However, please notice that SourceOP has no admin/green tags on SteamRep.

    I would say that removing a associated community isn't something you can do over night as I would be wrong. I recall Diego removing WA which used to be EE from SR in the matter of 22 minutes and some few seconds after something I said to him - apparently he didn't like what I said. Lolz

    My community has nothing to do with my post, it's my own personal thoughts. Even though SOP's trading forums are being reopened, I don't know if SR wants to associate itself with a community whose admins act in the way they did in the thread I linked.

    When you admin for years on traders, with the average "trader" being as informed as a 3 year old infant that only reads their own rep thread and the trade threads they are interested in, and none of the announcements, rules, guides, or w/e else is in the forum, those traders deserved some trampling. Tbh, looking back at it, it was great drama.

    I still haven't heard on what was going on for real, but the popcorn is still warm.

    I realize that I do have a bit of a conflict of interest here, but I actually posted this thread before I even thought of adding trading forums to my upcoming TradeRep site. Even if this weren't the situation, the way the SOP admins is unacceptable imo.


    No staff member of a site that wants to be taken seriously should act in this way. Ever. Even if it's "deserved".

    Yeah, he likes to make blunt, sarcastic, and grumpy comments sometimes. We're not at the stage where we censor our volunteer admin opinions (as much as it would make life easier for having these kind of discussions /sigh). It's his own personal thoughts.

    Clearly, any one admin's opinions on the SourceOp developments do not represent SteamRep's opinion. We're still weighing options with regards to SourceOp, with more meetings over the next week to discuss things now that it has settled down. It seems to be mostly business-as-usual, but definitely understand that the fate of such an important partner site is a big deal to us.

    Of course. One staff member shouldn't be indicative of a community as a whole, and that's certainly no reason to disassociate with a community. My suggestion to do so was only because of the announcement that SourceOP's trading community had been shut down permanently. Given that the boards are to be reopened, there is no reason why they shouldn't stay (unless, of course, SteamRep does not wish to associate anymore, but that's for you guys to discuss).

    Sugestion. Not sure if it has been discussed around here.

    Now that sourceop has closed it's reputation forums, make one forum section for that over here. In my opinion that would be great for most users of sourceop and probably steamrep's too. Steamrep and SourceOP are the only website's I used and rely for reputation. I hope most people feel the same.

    Thanks Mattie for the info, I didn't bother to check that forum frequently after that incident.
