1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    suggestion: make it so that going to steamrep.com/profiles/76561198284517488 or steamrep.com/id/Naleksuh will load the users steamrep profile

    Explain in better detail? A search of a users ID64 is always best.

    What?

    Site bans or bans to services by partners or friends be it on their webpages/forums or servers don't carry over in any automatic function.
    Tags that Partners can issue are manually inputted and based off public evidence noted on a public page that they host which is then noted on the users Steamrep profile page.
    Just because someone got banned on a server for say "Bad language" in no way would that be a taggable offense here. Partners follow our tagging procedures and evidence requirements since a tag from them effects other communities and SR's database as a whole.

    We wouldn't narrow down searching here beyond what the SR profile block provides.
    We discourage users from using custom URL's when making reports since a custom URL can be changed at any time.
    | steamname: Naleksuh
    | steam3ID: [U:1:324251760]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:162125880
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198284517488
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Naleksuh
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198284517488

    This block of information serves us plenty and I'm sure anyone else just fine.
    What another site does with their hosting or address returns is entirely up to them.

    One problem is that we try to discourage use of custom URLs, because scammers can and do change them quickly and repeatedly to cover their tracks. So the same short SteamRep URL pointing to one profile may point to someone else's (or nobody at all) a moment later, when a scammer updates it. As such, I would recommend against using them.

    That said, I think this is a reasonable feature request, given we already support searching by URLs. It may fall out of priority with other backlogged coding projects though.

    Until it gets implemented, you can search by vanity URL by putting the entire link after the ?q= in the URL. Example: https://steamrep.com/search?q=https://steamcommunity.com/id/naleksuh
