    I had an idea for SteamRep, I know and understand tags in SR. I saw of course that valve employee's had a valve employee tag but not the community moderators. i don't know if scammers impersonate these moderators but I was thinking about SR adding it. Now I don't know if you guy's ever thought about doing it or it wouldn't really make a difference. I made an example using inspect element on al's SR profile (One of Valve's Employees). What do you guy's think?

    It wouldn't matter - scammers will just do what you did and modify whatever to look how they need it to look.
    Remember that fake steam admin you reported earlier?

    Ya saw that fake steam support certificate they made? They do that crap all the time and although you and many others know those kinds of things are fake, there are many that do not. So they will change whatever however to look reputable in some form.
    Even if there were no such tags here at SteamRep they would still make them and use them so it doesn't really matter at the end of the day.

    Yeah I see the fake certificates they make. It kinda sucks how far they go to victimize someone with a nice inventory who doesn't know about this. Same thing with the steam artwork showcase things if you ever seen that.

    Another thing, if steamrep did have a moderator tag for Steam Community Moderators. Some moron would say to a victim "I'm a new moderator and my tag has not been processed yet." or something along those lines, best to keep it the way it is. They abuse literally anything they can.
