    The answers have not been posted yet. There were a LOT of questions, even with me filtering out duplicates and sorting them. They've also been very busy. I talked to Derrick the other day and he said he's working on them. No small feat either- there were over 130 questions!

    Don't worry, as soon as I get them back I will post them and we'll make an announcement on the SR main page as well. :)

    When you do - remind him not to touch the MOTD in anyway... I've been reading around that they may remove the MOTD from use cause of pinion and other plugins that use it such as Steamreps !rep feature. If they remove this the !rep feature will no longer work, !bp for most plugins will not work, pinion (those that use it in a legit way as its mean to be used) will not work and so on... please make them know that touching the MOTD in anyway will just kill TF2 - may as well stick a fork in it and the communities that use it such as Steamrep and others.

    if the plugins die, in-game trading will stop. Which will have a huge effect in value of items I think.

    not saying all plugins - just any to do with the MOTD here is a list
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/14GFAlNwhtuoNq4XKqSFvPuAA7iZYmcztQiRT85FjTzU/edit

    They (valve) must not mess with the MOTD - so this must be relayed in due fashion however and whenever possible to whomever has any access or power within then TF2 development group.

    No news yet? I understand there were quite a few questions, but 3 months already seems quite a lot to me :p
    If there where 130 questions, three months are 90 days. That not even 2 questions per day.

    That would explain why it has been 8 days without a response from steam support!

    Well, at least I hope it's worth the wait, because if it ends up being a list of "I can't comment on that" excuses I'm gonna murder someone.

    So we don't have any answers to a single question?
    Would be nice to get 100, 50, 10..I'd settle for even 1 question answered.

    At least now we know for sure he's a Valve employee, only they can be so slow.

    Would it hurt to send a friendly reminder to him? I understand not wanting to pester someone about it but come on...
