    Thank you for pointing this out. However, it's simply not possible to keep my friends list so strictly policed -- many people add me and I make it a point to (eventually) accept every friend request. I get many, many friend requests per day and I think the alternative (accepting nobody's friend requests) is counterproductive to running a good website.

    Fish's point is completely irrelevant anyway, and has no bearing on applications. So don't worry.

    *ahem* Explain to me how is his point irrelevant, and how does it not have any bearing on applications when you yourself have stated the following multiple times:


    Jessecar is an admin of Scrap.tf, as is Geel. And apparently people are asked to clean their friends list of scammers ("he was already asked to clean his list two times already for this reason.").

    Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding something here, but from what I'm seeing, DAFISH absolutely has a point. You've stated the above on multiple community applications. Also, I swear I saw someone say that the "4 or less scammers" rule is only for SteamRep admin applications and not community applications, but I can't quite remember.

    To Jessecar and Geel, I do not mean to derail or sidetrack your application. I'm just pointing something out that bugged me about Roudy's reply and brushing-off of DAFISH's post.[/quote]

    Addressing a few things:
    - # of scammers in friends list for applications (mod/admin/friend/partner/whatever) is not really a factor unless getting extreme, and concerns may rise due some issues. Admins normally want to cleanse themselves from them, but its up to them how they want to handle it. Traders generally don't want them for it makes them look bad etc. Its some we do look at, but we do also understand that community admins need to handle stuff with their site/community etc.
    - The "4 or less" "rule" has bearing on something else, if having more then 4 scammers in the friends list, the admin/mm won't be shown anymore on the admin list on SR.

    Examples:
    | steamname: Leon [dota2traders.com]
    | steam3ID: [U:1:28341124]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:14170562
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197988606852
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/LeonD2T
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197988606852

    | steamname: Skyrider
    | steam3ID: [U:1:23430460]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:11715230
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197983696188
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Skyrider
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197983696188

    | steamname: Mattie!
    | steam3ID: [U:1:11425466]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:5712733
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197971691194
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/mattie
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197971691194

    Those are all not shown on the admin list for that reason: https://steamrep.com/list/A

    So lets from here stop with this crap, and continue the normal application.

    How do you avoid/plan to avoid/or partially stop scammer alts selling high priced items to your bots? For Example it seems Australiums are sold by scammer alts there and on sweetstakes there seems to be scammer alts sniping items.


    Anyway, Good luck with the application Geel. I wish you luck.
