    This is a guide on how to make a report from in-game! (works without Team Fortress 2 open as well). I did this on Windows 8.1, but it should work on all Windows.

    1. The first thing you need to do is get the players ID Block, if the suer is still in game, you use this command in chat: "/rep [Players Name]". Without the " " of course and replaces [Players Name] with their name e.g. /rep enstage
    2. This will bring up a page that looks like the following, you need to copy the information circled in the image:

    3. Now save this information somewhere so you can get it later.
    4. Now to collect evidence, take screen shots of the player committing an offence. Press PRINT SCRN on your keyboard, or use your favourite screen shot program.
    5. Minimize Team Fortress 2 and open your Start menu, search for the program 'Paint' and then open it.
    6. Press CTRL+V to paste the screen shot, do not crop the screen shot, however you can use the paintbrush tool to edit out private information.
    7. Press CTRL+S to save the file, save it to your desktop (Or wherever you would prefer, make sure you can find it though) as something you can remember.
    8. Upload all the screen shots to a file sharing website, such as or
    9. Time to create the report, create a forum account using the Steam Sign In button.
    10. Go to 'Reports' then click the blue 'Click here to Submit a Report' button.
    11. Place your ID Block in the victim field. Find yours:
      [font=Monaco, Consolas, Courier, monospace]<a href=""><button type="disabled"><strong><font color="maroon">SteamRep ID Block Guide</font></strong></button></a>[/font]
    12. Then place the one you saved earlier in the accused box.
    13. Describe what happened.
    14. Post the links to the images from before, and then describe each image.
    15. Click Submit.
    Then you are done, wait until a staff member can review the report.
