  3. There is no manipulation on backpack.tf, it is a very secure and non exploitable platform. I won't tolerate such slander on my favorite website any further, don't make me step in.

    why is this a theme for elite hats

    Because you need to show that you are a true Gentle Manne of Leisure, and show off your majesty to those too poor or Irish to afford one hat, let alone 3.

    Add pending report(s) on users backpack profile

    Can you please add pending reports that can be shown on a users profile you visit? It's similar to the Steamrep caution when you visit a users backpack profile. Well, of course Steamrep has their own forum for reports, but we do too. Why don't you make use of our forums on a users profile too? I would like you to add something like Caution: This user has 1 or more pending reports on the forums. Also, don't forget to add a link to that pending report by hyperlinking the word forum. Mods can do this by editing on that users profile and it's not that hard to add this. Why this now if you ask? Well, I can't blame anyone else here except the backpack mods. They are too lazy to check big reports and have no intention to hire more active people. You can temporarily move the inactive mods and move them to the inactive roster but instead recruit some people. I can't stress this enough cause I only see Pixels and Smokey checking issues. Pixels is the only one being the most active one out there. Also, I'm not talking about the usual impersonator and baby rage reports but the ones that are involved in sharking and scamming people. Mods tag them as #pending but NEVER check them. It's been months and still going on. It's impossible to add such impersonator and sharking reports on a users profile anyway as there are many reports open on them but instead I have a solution that if we could let the mods add something like Beware of this user as we've received reports of him impersonating others for the mean time on their profiles until they gather evidence from the users. Many of the people don't follow up with their reports and they don't even know the formats so by adding this to the impersonators/scammers profile this could really help the other users that check profiles in the mean time. Maybe, they will even avoid such users to trade. It's a win-win for both of us if you add such an amazing feature. To name a few reports from inexperienced users: #1 https://backpack.tf/issue/6144c93f2c0490349c311cf1 #2 https://backpack.tf/issue/6137c30988b0e05764122a5d #3 https://backpack.tf/issue/6147a67ee06c2270c10405ef #4 https://backpack.tf/issue/61497f9abd73a656884a21a1 #5 https://backpack.tf/issue/614772d215944913f71ca3c7 By the time these reports are checked, these scammers will keep adding more people and scam them and thus making more and more reports for the mods to deal with as well. Not many people know a proper format and this results in the delay of any report as seen above. There are indeed many similar reports here everyday - https://backpack.tf/issues In addition, a few reports that are taking months: #1 for 8+ months - https://backpack.tf/issue/600ca3959214e63ad239a6ee #2 for 7+ months - https://backpack.tf/issue/604938d4a28ada6a8e332eae #3 for 4+ months - https://backpack.tf/issue/609d4cda0d315f0d0967e9a3 Yet, they continue to trade freely with other people who don't even know that the users they are trading have a pending report and being the primary target here. By adding this option on the users profile here - https://prnt.sc/1tfhqox it could be really useful to others and avoid them to trade. Of course, not many check profiles but it's still useful rather than not having it since we have our own report forums lying there for nothing. Let's make use of it on our profiles. A simple suggestion like this makes trading much easier. Also, If you like this concept please support on this thread so it can move forward, thanks. Edited to make it a bit more understandable.

    Fake -rep

    Instead of giving them -rep and receiving a lot of toxic reps back, made reports on the alts used by the user to sell his Unus in classies. I doubt this will prevent him to list in classies as he prolly has a ton of alts but still... That's kinda witch hunting but he deserves it Edit : well, just got a 3x -rep from his alts for this . Edit 2 : -4 now...

  15. It's almost like marketplace isn't a free market which would promote competition and thus better prices for the consumer. And the point of average sale price being lower than a listed price is kinda moot on high volume items of which almost all operate on a rolling price fluctuation due to variable demand throughout the day (ie lower when US is asleep). If I placed a buy order on almost all of those items for the shown scm price I would have it filled within hours, if not minutes for the real high volume items like ToD and keys. The point is relevant for low volume items of which some haven't had sales in months which makes their displayed value insanely outdated *cough cough collectors pro ks handshake cough cough .max(proksscmavg, baseitembackpackprice) when cough cough damn I'm so sick cough cough*

    Should we switch away from refined metal?

    @TheTexanTiger That is not quite true. If a ref really was worth less than a penny, it would cost more to expand your backpack to get 100 extra slots than the 100 ref would be worth. Refined metal works well, because everyone accepts it. If I would be able to make a single change to TF2, I would introduce 4 new crafting recipes. Ten refined metal makes a shiny metal. Ten shiny metal makes a precious metal. And the other two recipes would be the inverse of the first two. Storing large amounts of metal is a pain and has become quite difficult for trade bots to manage. If they don't have enough, they can't give change for a key. If they have more than they need, they can't store any items they actually want to trade.

    I am so stupid I got scammed by worst scammed in history

    Always background check profiles and be careful with websites you have never heard of before (especially those that look like tf2[dictionary word].com), since they are almost always scam websites. With that being said, I recommend checking the WHOIS of websites. TF2 scam domain names are typically less than a month old. Here's a place you can check that won't cost you anything: https://whois.domaintools.com/ Screenshot for your information and others: To add to this, here's a list of all scam domain names attached to the email address listed above. All this information is publicly available: http://u.pc.cd/tfOctalK

  29. Since I'm dealing with a lot of different halloween and other rare limited unusuals I can certainly say that these priced are not "absurd" as you say. People are willing to pay such high prices (Trust me I've made hundreds of keys buying and reselling them) because almost all halloween effects look really good and since you can't unbox them anymore that obviously increases the demand for these kind of hats. Also effects like Knifestorm/Arcana/Spellbound/Bonzo etc are considered as the best unusuals effects in the whole game. And I mean people are willing to spend insanse amounts on cs go knifes like rubys so I'm not really suprised that these "exclusive" effects have been rising over the past years.

    This person got an unusual (untradeable) golden pan very recently https://steamcommunity.com/id/JoellyE/inventory/ There was another person who had cancer who received an unusual spine-chilling skull as a gift from the devs after he visited valve for a day. Maybe this is a gift from the devs because of a similar circumstance? I'm pretty certain that this could be the case... Honestly, I have no clue how this person got it though. Thoughts?

  33. this holds up as much as "there are more low-levelled australiums so you have a better chance of getting an australium if you're on a low tour number". there are more people completing their first tour of an mvm mission set than there are people completing their 100th mission, so naturally, you'll see more people getting aussies on their first few tours. similarly, there are more people unboxing after an update, or during halloween, so you're gonna see more unusuals unboxed then.

    Should we switch away from refined metal?

    ToD tickets are probably the closest thing to having something in-between refined and keys as they're basically accepted as half a key. Honestly, Valve just needs more sinks for the older, non-case stuff. Unfortunately, they have little to no incentive to do so, even though they've proven they can make solid sinks with things like Trade-up, Chemistry kits, and Bread Boxes. If I could add sinks to the game, I think I'd do these: Another round of collectors items. Make them Series #2 Collectors items (any preexisting ones become Series #1 like how vintages happened), but expand a bit more to get people eager to make them by including both craft numbers on them and the original crafter. A Paint reapplicator. Spend a few refined to get a tool that can be used on a Skin or War Paint to make it do another random draw. I can easily see unusual weapon owners repeatedly using them to get their weapon "just right". New craftable noisemakers. Get a few more sound effects like canned laughter, comic book action noises, sad trombones, and so on. Being both consumables and being able to be easily replaced, people would certainly burn a few refined on sound-based shenanigans during their sessions.

    Basically how it works, if the case has an effect with more variations (Such as Phantom crown having green, orange and purple) then the chance for unusuals with only 1 variation gets multiplied by 3 to make up for it only being 1 effect.

    what should i unbox for scream fortress?

    Unbox cases, not crates, except for the new Halloween 2021 cases. Unfortunately, you can no longer unbox Halloween effects on hats from crates during Halloween, but you can unbox Halloween effects on hats from cases. If you get really lucky, you'll unbox an Assassin or Elite grade that's a 1-of-1 with a new Halloween effect. That's extremely unlikely, but if it were to happen, you could likely charge over 1000 keys for it.

  45. Two things in play here are really amplifying the manipulation 1) Insanely quick price suggestion acceptance There is nothing wrong with a suggestion being made, but the idea that an item can double in value in 3 days and get priced at that almost instantly is pretty silly 2) Bots shilling the buy orders Sure someone is legitimately buying a handful of these for a high price, as soon as 1) happens the bots are all over it in droves fighting each other (and anyone else) to try and buy Then as soon as the top is in, the manipulators slam the bots with items and they go fight each other on the way down At least one simple correction could be made (if anyone cared) Require a longer time frame of proof with a longer deliberation period before accepting high percentage change suggestions
