My account hasn't been reinstated yet.

If we use the alternative proof of purchase...can I still get it back?

Lol, figured it wasn't you. I asked him questions about what he wanted me to do for about 20 minutes, then I told him I was busy. :P

Re-added. I bet that's a load off. Thankfully the only thing the guy did with my account was change the L4D key bindings to weird stuff... Jump = Mouse 2.

Hope your account is ship shape. :)

A few attempts have been made on me in the past few weeks, via our steam group; and apparently others aswell.

I think we should get rid of all the un-validated steam group members, because I'm sure it's one of them. Two in particular are suspicious to me because they are members to a crazy number of steam pages, like 100. But there is really no reason to keep a bunch of derps that we don't know, who aren't members of Gametoast, in the group. Only problem is, I think Penguin is the only person who can do that.

I haven't gotten any attempts from people in the group, but that could just be my luck.

And I've wanted to kick out the 6 or so non-GT members for awhile now, but like you've said, only Penguin can. At least we can promote the GT members to officers, which is what I've attempted to do with all the members as they've joined, but being an officer doesn't mean much when randoms can join so easily.

I dunno. In my opinion the groups sort of been abandoned, and not just by Penguin.
