    Steam:

    Make it un alowed for bots to join the server to trade for these reasons
    1. It hogs a player spot
    2. It spams the chat
    3. All of the community hates bots
    4. Some people do not have trade bots and think its kind of a cheap way of trading instead of doing the work you have to to trade
    I missing a thousand more so if any of the community want to comment another reason they do not want them also read the comments for more reasons pls

    I don't think this rule is really enforceable.

    As far as I'm aware it's impossible to properly tell if someone is or isn't a bot.

    ...and this isn't true. Bots are extremely useful for buyers.

    Steam:

    Bots are extremely useful on trade servers for the sole reason that they actually trade unlike the majority of people who take up player slots on Trade NY and Trade US. In fact, I would suggest that the bots need protection rather than elimination. Calling a vote to mute a trade bot should be seen as abuse, no different than if a player is abusing a vote on an actual person.

    I was always under the impression that tradebots, especially scrapbankers, were able to function outside of TF2

    Keep the bots. When a post a trade on the trade section it will post automatically in the game
