SteamID has a Teams section which allows you to register your team or community name.
You can invite your team members in to manage your team, this opens up team comments on profiles so the whole team can view this when looking up accounts on SteamID.
With Team Patreon support it allows you to automate reports on your team members looking at their historic information to ensure your team or community isn't having toxic players.
Comments that are left can be exported via the Team API allowing you to retain the comments entered by your team comments for use in your own CRM for example.

This is still being built and expanded so any ideas or features are welcome.
