Standardized info on marked/banned profiles


Recommended Posts

Some profiles are unnecessary tedious and time consuming to check. I believe this can be fixed at no extra expense of Mod/Staff's time (or be repaid in other tasks).

Marked profiles already have most of this, but no consistency:

  • Date issued
  • Reason
  • Known Alts
  • DO NOT TRADE Clearly stated where it applies
  • Each info point should have same/fixed placement on all profiles

(* Extra feature request: Issue tracker link)

Example: https://imgur.com/4biItA7

Issue tracker has a lot of user-reports that conclude trade was done before ban. This is a waste of especially Staff's time and resources which could be spent on actual offenses(possibly preventing another scam). Adding 'Date of ban' should if- not eliminate -reduce volume of those reports.


Some examples that IMO everyone can live without:

https://imgur.com/Cv34w0O   2 profiles - suspected of same offense - 1 have DO NOT TRADE

https://backpack.tf/u/76561198822095182   The Babushka

Whatever it includes or looks like, I hope it becomes unnecessary to go past profile page for info you are there for.

Unless coding or something makes this impossible..

If an account is banned as a scammer or alt of a scammer, don't trade them. "Do not trade" is added on accounts where it's unclear if you can trade or not, to clarify (eg - scammer fence.) If you note the ban reasons on those accounts you linked, there's a difference. One is banned as a suspected "alt/fence" and the other it simply says "fence" - the mod added "do not trade" to make it clear to users. That you can't trade scammer alts should already be clear to everyone.


As for showing date of ban - it would be nice, but it's not top priority.
