Dont worry, it wont steal your password. How the “prove you have the game” works is:
Dark gaming sends you to the steam website (meaning dg cant see the info entered there since its the official steam website), and then steam will send dark gaming a list of the games you have and dg will check if terraria is in that list (you need your steam library games to be public though, because steam wont send your library info if you want it to be private).

I will email you a screenshot of my library to show it includes Terraria, cropping out everything but my username. What email address should I send it to?

What’s the point of emailing TheWeirdYT a screenshot of your Steam library? He can’t give you Crew.
If anything, you should send the screenshot to Rofle.

I dont know whether i feel happy or not that someone thought i was in a position of power in this server, but im not. As FAdada said, there’s no point in emailing it to me, and i think the only people who could give you crew are Rofle and Tejxa (as a developer he might be able to, but i dont think he would have permission to). If you send Rofle an email, he will likely not see it, or say that you should use the automated crew thing. Your best option is going on the website, but i can understand if you dont feel safe - even though theres no reason to be scared since dark gaming cant see your info.

OK - can i attach the screenshot file in a DM to Rofle?

As far as I know, no one has gotten their Steam account compromised because they obtained Crew via Steam.

Additionally, you can protect your Steam account with two-factor authentication, so even if someone steals your password, they cannot access your account.

You could, but I don’t think it’ll amount anything.

2FA is good advice. Still won’t be giving password to anyone, as that’s just kinda dumb lol

You arent giving your password to anyone.

tl;dr: Dark gaming sends you to steam, you enter your password on steam, and steam tells dark gaming that you have terraria. You do not give dark gaming any passwords at all.

And this is the only authentication method? I find it hard to believe Mods can’t choose to do this manually, rather than by automation that’s not transparent.

Think of it as a goodwill gesture to the community at large.

Mods shouldnt have to do work that can already be automated. Also, theres no way to 100% prove that you have terraria, unless steam directly tells DG that you have terraria.

What do you mean by this?

I mean that an automated process without any oversight (by mods) is sorta questionable to begin with. A screenshot can be faked, sure, but trust goes both ways,

which explains my comment about community goodwill. This is Jack’s Dad btw - just trying to keep my kid & his account safe.

Who are the mods that I can contact?

If you want to make absolutely sure that the account is safe, Rofle is probably the best and only person to message.

Click on Rofle’s username on any posts he’s made or replied to, and the press the message button that shows up. (post that I posted there was an example, you could go to that post and click his username there)


You can send a screenshot or proof to him personally like this, though I’m not sure if he’ll see it or accept it.

Ok. Thanks for your help, I’ll give it a shot.

Thanks for understanding and being cool about it. He has a blast playing here

The underlying system is based of OpenID, basically something like “sign in with google”, “sign with this …”. The system itself is pretty safe so long you ensure that you are on the correct website.

If you aren’t logged into steam before, then yes you will need to give your password to steam(https://store.steampowered.com/).

And yes, this is the only authentication method. Other authentication methods like manual aren’t full-proof nor practical.

That isn’t necessarily true. The system simply works by redirecting you to Steam and asking steam for a list of your games. If your games aren’t public, then it won’t work, thus the reason why it needs to be public. In practice, Steam is overseeing this operation.

Reconfirmation by Steam itself(you see this when you’re about to login):
