1. Item verification is always, 100% a SCAM! Glitched, illegal, or otherwise unsafe items don't exist.
    If you're here for an admin's "trade assistance", read this immediately or you will lose your items!!!

    1) SteamRep ID block pasted from your SR profile.
    | steamname: [FoGA] TheBluekr
    | steam3ID: [U:1:127615625]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:63807812
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198087881353
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/TheBluekr
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198087881353

    2) Are you at least 18 years of age? Timezone and nation of residence?
    I'm currently 18 years old. Live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and my timezone is +1 GMT.

    3) Please tell us about yourself (job, school, hobbies, etc)?
    My name is Kasper Ruhe, 18 years old and live in Amsterdam. I'm currently in 5th class, secondary school doing VWO Atheneum (basically highest education without Greek and Latin in the Netherlands). I'm currently trying to learn Python (beginner still) and Sourcepawn (starter at it). I game most of my spare time.

    4) Why do you want to become a SteamRep moderator?
    As any applicant, I'm interested and would like to help out to prevent fraud from happening.

    5) How much time can you devote to SteamRep per week?
    ~10-15 hours a week, depending on school.

    6) Do you have any prior administrative experience, or similar (please elaborate)?
    If it comes to experience with handling trade reports and appeals, none. My only experience with administrating is as admin of a server of a partner community of SR, Fortress of Gamers. I've been Server Manager for a period handling also server ban appeals aside from reports. I've retired from this position a while ago so this doesn't apply anymore.

    7) What challenges do you foresee if you become a moderator?
    Mostly the processing of the trade reports in the beginning due to having almost no experience with it. Only have been able to watch it happening as an outsider.

    8) Can you accept the fact that you must enforce SteamRep rules and guidelines?
    Yes, I do.

    9) Do you feel you will have any issues denying / accepting reports and appeals?
    No, I don't.

    10) Do you handle instruction and direction well?
    In my opinion sometimes too well. I used to tend to blindly follow a order of a higher person without taking my input into consideration expecting he was right. Aside from that, I do follow it very well.

    11) What do you feel are your personal shortcomings or attributes you can improve on?
    As I mentioned above, speak more for myself rather than only listen to others. And most importantly, learn the ins and outs of scam reports as I don't have much experience handling them.

    12) What contributions do you hope to be able to make? We're especially interested in previous content or experience that shows you can help educate the community on fraud prevention.
    Mostly trying to help out lifting some weight of the workload and help out filing reports. I've already helped some friends of mine who were beginners in trading to recognize most scam methods. I've also helped couple of users filing a report for example when someone attempted to scam them when they asked me to hold their items for the "dupe bug verification" method.

    13) Do you have any interest in eventually becoming an SR Admin? If so, what kinds of things would you like to do? (Example- community relations, appeals, scam reports, etc.)
    As of now I don't got interest in becoming a SR Admin.

    14) Please list all alternate Steam accounts using SteamRep ID blocks.
    My only alt account I use for storage purposes. It's currently run by a bot.

    15) Do you agree to the Code of Conduct and agree to abide by it?
    Yes, I do.

    16) Have you read the Duties of SR Moderators post and understand it?
    Yes.

    17) (If applicable) List Steam trading communities you are / have been active on and in what capacity (user, mod, admin), also give a link to the account(s) there.
    Not applicable regarding trade admin.

    18) Do you have any questions?
    Here's a list:

    TheBluekr is a great guy at FoG. Does not have experience but has the other qualities, that I believe, are more important than experience. I sure can trust him and he has shown great "work" and decision making at FoG- Gonna need some work but has my Vouch. Gl with your application!

    Thanks for your reply and yes, I have considered it earlier and tried it as shown at this link. Currently the team is full and aren't looking for applicants anymore. I was still interested in helping to help prevent fraud from happening so I made this application here as you can see now.

    Do you intend to withdraw your application here, or is that decision completely separate?
