  2. It needs to go. It's ineffective in how it can be enforced, so getting banned for it feels like luck of the draw and is probably extremely infuriating if you a. Didn't know (or couldn't know, a lot of scammers try to look as legit as possible), or b. know someone ewlse that has gotten away with it completely unscathed. I myself remember purchasing an unusual about a year or two ago off the SCM, and since Steam removed the ability to check seller profiles, I was unaware I purchased the unusual from a scammer, and when I tried to trade it on a community server, people consistently brought up the fact the previous owner was marked on bp.tf. I didn't get banned for this, but no one who could ban me for such a thing ever inquired. It makes absolutely no sense because its enforcement is limited, and in the end, as you mentioned, no other site does this and it has little to no impact on whether scammers can sell their items. If anything, if I know a user is a fence for a scammer, I'll know I can get better deals from them (that's not to say I have engaged with or sought out fencers, but the prospect is there) and negotiate a better price because their profit margin is most likely much higher if the scammer sold for dirt cheap, which is a common occurrence. TLD Limited enforcement, unjust balance in bans, little impact on scammers in the first place, thus it has no place. Solution? Place an automatic "trust flag" across the header of a bp.tf profile for a steam account that doesn't meet the criteria of a standard user (hours, number of trades, relative inventory worth), and auto-mark inventories that are private until they remove private and appeal (outpost does this, had that happen to me when I was trying to stop scam accounts from adding me for my unusual, but it also meant I couldnt post on that site, so I appealed and reopened my inv). If some % of your trades within the past, say, 6 months, are with people that have a trust flag for not meeting standard criteria, You should have a "high risk" mark placed on your profile for regularly dealing with low quality accounts, indicating to others that you yourself may be a scammer. If some % of your trades are with already marked accounts in the last 6 months, you should get an automatic negative trust for fencing. The time limit of 6 months is arbitrary but by making it check the last 6 months in periods (so updating only every half year, not checking the last 6 months every month) means a high risk or negative trust ding would remain there until the next check. You may argue that fencers would try to abuse this by limiting their sketchy trades, but by not disclosing the % threshold or making it volatile each period, this can be avoided.

    [PC] Strange Unusual Holy Grail Burstchester

    Crazy how a strange is worth just as much as the unusual

    [PC] Strange Unusual Holy Grail Burstchester

    unfortunately even as strange+lovely effect,its worth bp.tf price. strange unu burstchester isnt considered a separate unlike others since the unusual itself is an unusualifier so we can always get a strange one and the unusualifier separately. the bp.tf price is 7-9 keys
  9. If it means that you'll have more time finding scammers and banning them, then I'd say ease on the rule of banning traders that trade with them. Like many said, not everyone is aware they're trading for a scammed item.
  10. Yeah, I know it's nothing but it's not bad considering I did basically nothing and got ~20 cents out of it.
  11. No, it's 5 ref. But it's double what the bible.tf prices say I could've made.
  12. Impressive. Now all you got to do is put trade.tf in your steam name and boom. instant big boy profit and unusuals.
  13. So I recently got a strange holy grail burstchester, (which looks pretty neat if I say so myself) but the problem is that I have no idea how much it's worth. The strange by itself is about 7-8 keys, and the holy grail unusual by itself is about 8-9 keys, but I couldn't find a price for the two combined. I spent about 30$ on both a strange taunt and an unusualifier, and I gotta say I kinda feel like I won the lottery by getting an effect as good as holy grail. I would have been pretty screwed if I got silver cyclone or something. Anyway, How much is it worth? I probably won't sell it any time soon but I feel like I need to know.
  14. Agreed with everything you have said. It's like sex Ed movements in public schools. Educate people, and the rates of pregnancy(or in this case scamming) go down.
  15. That's not even 3 ref... You spent a couple weeks to make <12 cents. You could have probably at least found 1 quarter on the ground in that time...
  16. Made a lot more than I thought I would've. Better than nothing https://imgur.com/a/JbPFSkx

    estimate for my backpack

    There are some collectors out there buying spelled unusuals. You should wait at least a month and you'll get some great offers, even higher than bp.tf price for sure

    I recently rose the price of Decal Tools from like 1.44 to 1.88-2. Now bots are going at it for 3 refined. Of course when I need some for my objector business.

     

    I fucked up.

      Has nothing to do with the suggestion tbh; the bots were selling for 1.88-2 because they still sold regardless of backpack price. Same reason why they're fetching 3 ref now. Suggestions reflect sales, not vice versa.

    estimate for my backpack

    love how nobody replied to the thread at all except for this guy. Personally I value your backpack at around 2300 USD ~2500 USD However if you need the cash onhand immediately you could probably get 1800~2000 USD easily from backpack buyers. Although the best way to cashout is to slowly cashout your items by selling all your items individually. if you aren't in need of immediate cash consider using marketplace.tf
