    Tell us why you should be a staff member
    Hey
    I'm here applying for staff to help with scam reports and possibly appeals
    I see no option for that so I ticked forum/moderator (Charlie told me to do that)
    my name is Nebras, I live in Syria, I've been on Steam since 2014 (knew about it and understood most of it much earlier, just didn't have a reason to make an account)
    I've been active for a while on Harpoon servers, mostly AllTrade, but I'm more interested in reports/appeals, I'm not the most experienced in this regard, but I think I can help.
    I don't trade much as I don't have the time to invest into it, I just trade for stuff I like
    I encountered many scammers through the communities I've been active on, helped many people avoid scams and report scammers, I want to help spreading awareness about scams to all Steam users and teach them how to avoid scammers.

    my past admin experience probably isn't worth mentioning, but here it is anyway
    been an admin on a couple of now closed forums like gamer-forums.com and betaspark.uk
    administrated many facebook pages (some related to gaming, some not), and the largest community I moderated was the Syrian Hardcore Gamers facebook group, a community of 23k+ members

    -1. Have never seen you. 20 hours server time seems very little.

    He is applying for forum staff I believe, so I'm not sure if server time applies?

    If Nebras had more time on the server more regulars who use the forum would know him though. Just my 2 cents.

    -1 You applied for forums staff but this is your only post on the forums. Perhaps become more active on the forums and I may change my opinion. Your application looks nice and I admire your willingness to learn.

    Thanks all for your comments, I understand your concerns
    it is true that I should've been more active here, and that's a thing I will definitely try to do, however, I'm applying to directly help with reports/appeals, wouldn't mind doing forum moderation, but that's not the goal of this application (as explained, I only ticked forum/moderator because there's no "trade staff" option)

    In this regard, most of my experience came from lurking around SteamRep and its different partner communities, SR staff helped me improve a lot, however I believe I have reached a point where I can't gain more experience on my own without close guidance from the more experienced people in the community

    They are called trade moderators/administrators, I believe.

    +0 haven't seen you around on servers. What time do you usually get on?
    Also I suggest being more active on the forums before applying for a forum staff position.

    +0 I've been on HG servers a lot lately and i haven't seen you. 20 hours isn't that much.

    +0 I've seen you before on the forums and on servers occasionally, but you could use a boost to your activity on both.

    thank you all for your comments, I'm not usually active on the servers, and I don't play the game all that much these days for many reasons, I am however trying to be more active on the forums and on discord

    it is trade staff but it's the same anyway, however there isn't an option to create an application for trade staff, that's why I chose forum/moderator after asking Eoj Charlie

    I am curious, you're interested in forum and reports staff here at Harpoon. I've noticed that you were rather new when you applied. It has been a little more than a month since you applied, and you have essentially no posts on the entirety of the forum, minus your staff app. Do you intend to be active on our forum?

    I'm mostly interested in trading, reports and appeals, and helping in anything trade related, I haven't been active here as I didn't really find something to say, although I read all posts on the forum, have been like this for quite a while actually, long before I applied for staff.
    I'm mostly active on Discord, and I will try to be more active on the forum.
