    1. SteamRep Integration
    a. Do you run Trade[​IMG] Servers? Please list the URL/IP of each server in your community that runs the SteamRep plugin and how many days each has been running it.

    27.50.72.252:27085 ------ 200+
    27.50.72.250:27025 ------ 100+

    b. Do you run a trade-related web application or community? List the URLs of the sites that run the SteamRep Web API and how many days each has been utilizing the API to block or mark scammers.

    N/A

    2. Have you made any modifications or changes to the SteamRep plugin or are you running an unofficial plugin? If so, please explain.

    We are running the official unmodified SteamRep plugin.

    3. Please list the URL of your community's Steam group.

    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SmexyTrading

    4. Please list the URL of your Steam group containing your community's administrators[​IMG].

    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ststaff

    5. Please list ALL admins (not in the above group) and/or moderators of your community below with links to their SteamRep profile (e.g. HelenAngel - http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197977521239)

    All staff members are required to be in the group above.
    Hidden Content:
    **Hidden Content: Content of this hidden block can only be seen by members of (usergroups: Administrative, Moderating).**
    6. What are your community's policies on scamming & scamming-related activities?

    We have a 0 tolerance rule for scammers and their accomplices. If a player is found to have scammed, attempted to scam, or helped scam another player they are permanently IP banned from all our servers and report to SteamRep.

    Players have the ability to report users by adding admins or submitting a 'Ban Request' on our Steam Groups forums. All requests are reviewed immediately, a decision is made based on the SteamRep guidelines and the report is archived.

    7. Why does your community wish to exchange banners and become a Friend of SteamRep?

    As a community we wish to join the ongoing fight against scammers and scamming activities. We believe that through the use of SteamRep.com, the SteamRep plugin and the exchange of banners we can at least prevent scammers from entering our community.

    Our servers were created to provide a unique and safe trading[​IMG] experience for both new and old traders[​IMG]. I personally believe we are very close to achieving our goal believe that through SteamRep we can achieve this.

    8. Please provide a link to your community's website (if applicable)

    N/A | In development

    9. Please provide a link to your community's Sourcebans or ban/report forum.

    http://125.63.61.81/sourcebans/enstage/index.php/dashboard
    This is a temporary location, this is subject to change in the coming weeks.

    10. Please provide a link to your community's stats page, hlstatsx or GameMe (if applicable).

    We do not have an online statistics page. All our statistics are done using TF2Stats stored locally on our servers.

    11. Please provide additional details about your community such as how it came to be, how long it has been around, the primary goals of it, what it does, etc.

    SmexyTrading was founded by FunWithSmexy in early 2014 as a server for his YouTube fans. This small group has grown in to multiple servers with a dedicated staff team and the addition of two more owners. Since then it has become more than just a server for a YouTube channel.

    Our primary goals, as mentioned above, are to provide a safe trading environment for new and old players.

    12. Please post your community's desired banner (if not already on SR). Banners should be 225x48.

    Another update:

    *We got 4 new servers about a month ago, I didn't post them here because it was a bit of a trial to see how they would go. We are keeping them and may move servers #1 and #2 to the new host, he is a full list:
    Server #1: 103.231.89.101:27085 Might move to (125.63.61.81:27040)
    Server #2: 103.231.89.104:27025 Might move to (125.63.61.81:27041)
    Server #3: 125.63.61.81:27042
    Server #4: 125.63.61.81:27043
    Server #5: 125.63.61.81:27044
    Server #6: 125.63.61.81:27045

    *Update to question 2:
    We have not made any modifications to the plugin itself, however, I have made modifications to our SourceBans (v. 1.4.11) so that all bans made by the plugin appear to be made by the admin 'STEAMREP'. (If anyone wants it, I can give them the script for this :D)

    Thanks,
    Staff

    Sorry for yet another update, but I feel it is required now. I won't update for IP changes in future; just check the server list that will always be at the top of the smexy-trading.net page.

    We are adding another server or two every month or so, but this is what we have so far:

    Server #1: 103.231.91.61:27085
    Server #2: 103.231.91.68:27025
    Server #3: 103.231.91.67:27025

    Updated to question 1b:
    Our forums check a users reputation every time their profile is loaded, and when they sign up (profiles are not loaded too often, but often enough for this to be effective). If a user is a scammer they are banned automatically, for example:
    http://smexy-trading.net/member.php?action=profile&uid=409

    Have one question.

    What if you guys eventually get partnered with SR and you guys are tagging people then.
    They wanna appeal their tag with you but are not able to do so because they get automatically banned upon registration due to being marked.
    How are they able to appeal their tag then?

    The banned group on the forums has access to view the appeals forum, and access to the form to submit an appeal, as well as the ability to reply to threads made by them.

    Hello @Enstage, I completely support this application but I think that having banned people only being appeal to see and post in the appeal forum is a bit to strict- they should be able to do reports too. Unless a user is banned for faking evidence he should always be able to report people, some people after getting banned start reporting fraud.
    Just a just a humble suggestion, good luck with your app !
