Steam banned one of my uploaded artwork images, claiming it violated their terms of service.

I do not understand how it violated their terms and it stayed on the community artwork forum for quite some time without any issue. I have the feeling some jealous idiot flagged it or something.

UPDATE:

According to the PAYDAY 2 forum, some mod got nuts and banned most of the artwork. I wasn't the only one as I found out.

    Hang on, working on that.

    EDIT:

    There. I don't see anything offensive and I really doubt I violated copyright. Even if I did, other users do the same thing too and they're usually not affected.

    Heck, I read it before and tried to make sure none of my artwork broke their rules.  I tried to find it again and I still do not understand why it was banned (and why I myself received a ban).

    I also sent a support e-mail demanding a more specific reason, though I doubt they will ever reply.

    Maybe they confused the PayDay character for an actual terrorist and banned it.

    Feel sorry for you.

    They should at least give a concise reason for banning the artwork and banning it's maker without warning is plain bullshit.

    Maybe there is an algorithm that mistakes the metal hand as a person flipping his middlefinger ?

    Right, they don't offer two-factor authentication or anything - which most major email providers additionally offer two-factor authentication. This adds up to about 4 layers of security you could apply to a Steam account. 

    We understand that you carelessly lost your Steam account. A password authenticated account is only as secure as you personally made it. Which apparently, wasn't secure at all.

    Well, stealing is there craft. Anyone can be a target- just one unnoticed alteration in HTML's can be a trap. I say this in general, & I think its safer to use the Steam icon you've installed [as always].

    When I was in middle school, some troll managed to trick almost all the kids there that the peace sign meant the person was gay. I am not kidding.

    So I was wrong all this time about it?

    Just kidding, heh. But yeah, you're supposed to be gullible at that age.
