    Protection for new unboxers from "sharks".

    No this is not going to eliminate all sharking altogether as that is impossible, but it's way better than nothing at all. (Just an idea, not perfected at all) The Problem: There's been a huge increase in the number of people using premium search as a tool to find inexperienced unboxers just to get good deals as these unboxers have no idea the worth of their item. I've seen cases where within half an hour of a valuable unbox there are already 4 "sharkers" adding them on steam to try to squeeze as much profit as they can out of them. Action has been taken in the form of a -trust on users who are known to use this method, however lots of these inexperienced unboxers haven't even logged into backpack.tf before, so this I feel isn't enough. Common method I'm seeing is highballing an Unpriced item at a super high price and I've noticed lots of newer traders think that just because a high tier trader has listed for that price that it must be worth that much. Basically manipulation, but the "sharker" hasn't said anything. My Solution: My suggestion would be to have protected users that their profiles can not be tracked through premium search. Protected users could include: - Never logged into backpack.tf or other major trading websites - This I feel is the best idea as people who have not logged into a trading website before likely aren't trading altogether/don't know how to trade at all. This would not effect normal traders too much as if they aren't trading, then you won't be able to get the hat anyway. Also the easiest one to implement. - Low time spent on steam - Low backpack value/huge increase in backpack value after an unbox - High Value item being searched combined with any of the above reasons This protection could be turned off as soon as the user passes a certain mark that considers them to be experienced enough (not entirely sure how this would work as of now). Other Solutions: - Banning people from using prem search altogether who are deemed to be using it wrongfully - A [Request Price Check] Feature on the site that creates a page where users appointed by backpack.tf mods can comment and give accurate price checks. Could even work like a price suggestion by taking in all of the people's opinions on price and then giving a final range on price. Again, just some ideas I thought I'd share, so definitely not perfected. Other thoughts and ideas would help too.

    You give a guy a shitty lowball offer and are surprised his response isn't full of sunshine and rainbows?

    Lower the key price

    Okay, in my opinion the key price at the moment is too high. The price should be around 10 ref, more or less, because there are new players and is very hard for them. And 27 ref is exaggerated, way too high for new players. This is just my opinion so yeah, no hate.

    Swastika on Conscientious Objector, a common item among TF2 players and traders.

    Nothing good ever comes from censoring people. Just because something offends you or bothers really means nothing at all and should not be used as a reason to ban people. Jokes you don't find funny or things you think are in bad taste are purely subjective. African drug lords are pretty bad, not a very nice thing to be going around calling yourself, maybe we should slap you with a ban for something so vile..Wait no, that's a stupid idea.

    Was Pixxi0us ban fair?

    I think the ban is totally justified. The history probably didn't show up because POSE had a private inventory at the time you traded or was set to "friends only" Besides the creation of the account was really recent and has 0 hours of TF2. Low steam level. Things that are clearly stated in the "guide for background checks" which is also linked in the community rules listed here. https://backpack.tf/rules Also avoiding a ban wasn't the brightest idea either. Bans are there so you learn your lesson. By avoiding it you clearly don't feel bad about it nor did you learn your lesson. Just because you helped the community it also doesn't necessarily mean you should be treated differently from other users. If you break the rules, you should deserve the same punishment. https://backpack.tf/u/76561198085269574 mighty bob contributed about 10x the amount of suggestions but he still is banned because rules wouldn't be rules if they were biased. Sure trading with a scammer might be a minor mistake but we make mistakes to avoid them. Your big mistake was not learning from your mistake. Even if a ban is "permanent" you can appeal them after a certain period of time. There are also plenty of people that still trade even whilst banned on backpack.tf Either way thats just my opinion. Best of luck with your trades.

    If a person is submitting proper evidence, why on earth would we want their contributions limited? You may not personally like when a particular item's price changes, but that doesn't change the fact that the price on the site was no longer reflecting the current market and needed to be updated.

    Swastika on Conscientious Objector, a common item among TF2 players and traders.

    Yeah, whats up with that shit ? like people find the holocaust, the death of millions of people, psychopath nation that almost destroyed the world, a funny thing ? why isn't no one doing a god damn thing ? I do understand that you cant do much about people exposing their support towards those stuff on the chat or mic, but i encountered lots of people owning a freaking Objector with a Swastika logo on it, what the hell is going on ? why are those people not freaking banned yet ? maybe they have the right to own everything they want and do what they want with their objectors, but in my opinion, as long as it relates to something as sad and destructive as the holocaust, there are no excuses, should be banned. World War 2 is not a freaking joke, its probably the most cruel thing that happened in the history of this planet, not just for the Jews but for the entire world, so cut if off, and whoever giggles about it and thinks its funny to own an Objector with Swastika on it, should try to giggle when he will be perm banned.

    Refund 1 month subscription, bought a hour ago.

    Hey a hour ago I Bought 1 month subscription with 3 keys and I’d like a refund. I couldn’t find ANY videos only about this so I looked for some posts. It says you get acces to exclusive deals but it’s just a bouncy of bots listing overprices I teams because prices haven’t been updated. And there is also not a lot of search filters more than price and other small stuff that doesn’t really help me. I would like a refund of 3 lets please. Thanks.

    Was Pixxi0us ban fair?

    A temp ban for trading with scammers a second time is more than fair. You were banned for trading with scammers a few months ago, where we linked you our guide for background checks. You were told this in your appeal. You still chose to evade your ban, which we do not take kindly. Your permanent ban for ban evasion stands.

    Protection for new unboxers from "sharks".

    I've been pretty lucky with my unusual unboxes recently. I unboxed a Strange Scorching Translator and an IAPTM Duck Billed Hatypus within the last two days, both of which are unpriced. Within less than 12 hours of getting the duck hat I was getting adds left and right from people wanting to offer on it, and judging from the subject of the thread i'm guessing they used Premium to find me. I know for a fact that these people don't really give a damn about my unusuals; they just want to make a quick profit. This shit is really putting me off trading. I'm not much into it anyways and am more interested in the core TF2 gameplay and the competitive scene, but now I have even less of a desire to get into the trading lingo if there is no genuine interest in the items being traded.

    Erm is it just me or has the top inventories system recently modified to showing up based on community prices rather than backpack.tf prices? Also is there a way to change that?

    Good job my man. You look at recent sales. There is only 1 recent trade which is yours. The other hats weren't even traded in 600+ days including your hat. You don't even have premium, so i don't know how did you check recent sales. 👍👍 🔊 We all have encountered your type of trader. 🕪 👌👌

    Teach me a profitable trading guide

    Step 1: Buy Low Step 2: Sell High Step 3: Repeat In all seriousness though, there is already a guide on the forums: Now, you can build up from what you have, but as you can only get low-tier items (and not very many of them at that) with your current backpack, profits will be very small and harder/slower to come by, as you'll be in direct competition with most bots. You won't see large profits until you can leave the refined-based markets and enter the key-based ones. That's why the most common advice for new traders is to start with an initial capital investment (8-10 keys minimum, 12-16 recommended, 18-20 optimal), so they can skip the base toil and jump straight into low-tier unusual trading. Now, scrap to unusual is still possible in today's economy, but it's rarely worth it as the return is pitiful for your time invested.

    Can someone give me a quick rundown about state of unusual trading?

    High tiers are mostly dropping in price. Low tiers are dominated by bots. Mid tiers mostly too. Unusual taunts are shit with 0 demand. Unusual weapons are mostly hard to sell too. Also you can already see many unusual hats below 8 keys. Basically stick only to hats. They're still good to go.

    The way I see it: 1. We took a turn to be a more p.c world but forgot to stop and are still spiraling. Now a lot of random people get real offended by stupid shit and we must sympathize -being so p.c and all. After a day without being able to say trivial shit like: (content deleted to not hurt someones feeling), it will get ugly when you get on the web. I think this song says it perfect if you change "everyone" to "no one" 2. ..or theres just a lot of Hindus and Buddhists that loves to play TF2. The swastika is a 5000 year old sacred symbol after all! Would Jews obliterate/expunge(?) the Star of David if it was used by Mao?? or Stalin?? Which segues nice to: Holocaust was bad, but common be serious... It barely makes top 3 in term of death toll Mao Zedong. Over 75 Million killed Joseph Stalin. Est. 20-25 Million killed Adolf Hitler. 12 Million (50-55% Jews, 45-50% non-Jews When it comes to Genocide(% of population wiped) I recommend googling, most have names to hard for me to remember Tutsi Native Americans Pygmies Kazakhs Chechen and others totally gone just in the last century

    Premium is worth it, but assuming by your bp value and this post, you have no idea what premium really does. With a bp worth that little though it was sort of foolish to use your only keys on a website and not items to trade. You can get a lot more value out of 3 keys trading at your level than premium will give you. Edit: Also why did you put this in Politics, Religion and Science, there is a web site issues forum...

    Can't bypass it. Sorry man. Steam is really and annoyingly strict about this. The worst is when you get a new phone, just because you are transferring your steam mobile number you get a 14 day trade "ban". Its rough Good luck with your 30 days.
