post on the GlobalOffensive Reddit
indicates Valve has a new submission
process for user-created content for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
post from Steam Support
indicates this sort of item approval will come to
other games where scams are prevalent:
For certain Workshops that have
been the target of scams leading to hijacked accounts, newly submitted and
updated items will be placed into a moderation queue. You'll be able view and
edit the content during this process, but other players will not be able to view
changes until they're approved.
For updates to existing items, subscribers will have access to the previously
approved version if there is one.
The approval process should be completed in less than a day, with most items
getting processed in less than an hour. If you have any questions on the
process, please contact
