    Idea for preventing misrepresentation of items

    As we all know a lot of newbie traders get easily scammed by being offered a Strange Festivized instead of Strange Festive weapon. Or uncraftable instead of craftable version of some promo items (like Lucky No. 42). So my idea is to have similar alert as for the one for users that are being often impersonated. Something like that: I know there will still be people who will always fall for these scams, but I think this would stop some attempts, as scammers usually send links to the stats page of the misrepresented item.

    SteamDetective - Take background checking to the next level

    I've been using Augmented Steam for a good while to check profiles, but it missed a lot of things I wanted. Because of this, I decided to make my own script to background check people quickly and thoroughly at the same time. It's not 100% perfect for the moment, but I thought some people might find it useful, so here it is. GitLab link (download + installation instructions): https://gitlab.com/carbonwind/steamdetective Discord Server: https://discord.gg/NXA27dqy3k Current features (more coming soon): Makes names strike through when banned on SR and/or BP Shows account age and IDs + custom URL (if applicable) Gets detailed information from SteamRep (tags, banned friends, history, forum threads), Backpack.tf (with API key), Mannco.store, Marketplace.tf and Scrap.tf and directly displays it on their profile Adds research and archive links to allow you to dig even further if necessary

    Death of MidTier Unusuals

    bro leave me alone all you've been doing for the past 15 years is flex your score on an online video game inside a screen. this really represents how much of a try hard you are and how much you sweat on things that don't even make a slight positive difference in your life, all they do is make your life worse by ruining your schedules and taking up extra time so you cant study or exercise or even eat at the correct times. you gain absolutely nothing from doing what you do, and you have the audacity to show off your scores from a useless and valueless video game to other people, who are living the same story and life as you. this really shows how much you've gone into this whole online world and the world of video gaming. yet you show no signs of regret and you have made multiple people furious at your actions. you kill them in game, make them mad, god knows what they've done to cool off, then you come and flex your scores to us, making us rethink our life choices and think about how much we suck compared to you. i'm going out of my way to write this message, this really shows that i am really bored and i have nothing to do. but you gotta know; its just a game. and the things you do in the game are valueless, worthless, and it will all be meaningless in the end. goodbye.

    Which is Best Pan for Deep Frying?

    Deep frying is a bitch to do at home. Clean up is dreadful and amount of oil used =/= worth the meal imho. I know people use stuff like Dutch ovens for frying chicken at home but in this video Ragusea uses his stainless steel 12 inch frying pan which seems to do fine. Stainless steel pans are unfortunately, a bit expensive since, as he explained in another video, every part of a stainless steel frying pan has to be stamped out of a big sheet of stainless steel. Conclusion, really is no point in deep frying at home, much safer, easier and more convenient to go to a place that serves deep fried fatty foods instead if you are craving something. But if you insist, here's another video for your research Have fun

    PayPal account permanently closed?

    As a fairly avid cash trader. Here are a few pointers I have: Have you fully verified your identity, bank account and address with PayPal? This is typically done so that you can transfer unlimited funds and get rid of the 2500 EUR calendar year restriction for receiving funds Are you positive it is "permanently closed", if so, then that's a different alert to what wxsp is talking about which is a PayPal account being "locked" and you must provide additional information to verify your identity as above? My underage PayPal account was locked for over 2 years with about $30 inside it. I never cared for the extra money and just left my account restricted for that period of time, provided my legal documents after I turned 18 and they unrestricted it, let me withdraw the funds and asked me to make a new account with a new email address. That new PayPal is now fully verified and I've got probably over $10,000 in transactions since last September on it now. (Note: With absolutely no hassle from PayPal whatsoever, so long as you play by their rules, it's all good. I verified my identity when I sent a payment over $3000 on a new card, and both PayPal and my bank contacted me to ask if it was a fraudulent payment. Once it was sorted out, things have been going very smooth sailing since - https://prnt.sc/1ewdp2m) Realistically, it does look extremely fraudulent on PayPal's side to have a butt ton of money appear from essentially nowhere. If your account is new, that can also contribute to flags being alerted over at PayPal HQ. So long as no one chargebacks you, you are probably good to talk it out with Support, they can be reached inside PayPal's website and customer service, or alternatively, reach out to them on Twitter and ask them to give you a phone number you can call. I've resolved issues using this method in the past. So long as you are pretty well explained, I'm sure the misunderstandings can be cleared up Best of luck cheef, aj

    PayPal account permanently closed?

    I got my account frozen for 3 months for a 20k USD transaction. They too said it was permanent but I would file a new ticket each week until my account was unlocked again. Ever since I have not kept any money on PayPal, I transfer to my bank right away because they are aware that I sometimes sell goods, whether digital or tangible and they have never given me a hard time about anything. Best of luck getting your account back and don't leave your cash sitting there ever again.

  28. It's been a while now and I think this should be brought up. When people wanna make a price suggestion on an unpriced skin, the default currency for the Decorated Weapons quality is Refined (as seen here https://imgur.com/lXm1Pxa). However, having Refined as the default currency doesn't make sense at all, since only skins worth 10 keys or above can be priced in suggestions (as seen in the rules (refer to "Rules for Decorated Weapon Suggestions")). Right, so how does it make sense for the currency to be automatically set to Refined if only skins above 10 keys can be priced? In my opinion, it doesn't. Honestly, setting it to keys would be a lot better in this case. I'll also note that the fact the default is set to Refined has also caused suggesters to have to close suggestions just because they forgot to set the currency to Keys, something that would stop happening if the default was set to Keys. Here are some examples: ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60d5a335cf61d97ab139eb78 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60d5a345260a992d0d3f3f29 ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60c9db2cb98d1928a06f7105 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60c9db4a6afab777f7721946 ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60c90690995e6b1c9b30e3f5 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60c9069e995e6b1c9b30e402 ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/606f991d1719ef47db120903 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/606f9b4ed6bad252644ea5ab ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/604a81600c4cff6b02692b03 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/604a817197e8c748792425c6 ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60464b4027954e659d5fe861 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60464b616f50526b3a5e71de ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60a3ebbf4ddfb146097aad03 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60a3ebd387a7c00d9b1d4602 ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/606247c2c16a3816975198f4 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/6062486c664e79436c4228b9 ~~ https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60d9e263c2b0203c69609af3 https://backpack.tf/suggestion/60d9e26ed2de6723da4edb9d ~~ This does happen a lot more than this for sure, but I just wanted to show some examples of people accidentally forgetting to select Keys as the currency before submitting the suggestion, which I honestly think would be fixed by setting the default currency for Decorated Weapons suggestions as Keys. I mean, it's definitely possible since Unusuals are set to Keys, I'm pretty sure this could be set too. I think I said everything, thx for reading this and I'd like to hear your opinions

    My Custom Fight Songs cover

    Hey yall, I bought Fight Songs on vinyl, but I felt like something was missing. So I recreated the cover with SFM and Photoshop and added my loadouts to it. It took some time to make this but I'm happy with how it came out. Here's a picture of it.

  31. They usually aren't accurate though (takes the average of previous sales, which can be very outdated), especially for stranges. Good deals can be made there, because some sellers blindly trust the estimation given by bp.tf, when it's often worth >2 times more Best way to sell/estimate a skin is to check actual price of the war paint on SCM and selling for a bit less.

    Trading servers in 2021

    It's how trading has been since bp.tf first became popular, that's why some people jokingly call it "bible.tf" - I remember all the way in 2013/2014 when I'd have people bitching on trade servers about "omg people stop worshiping backpack.tf prices buy my overpriced junk reeeee!" The only trade server that is anywhere near 100% trade no goofing off is Firepowered Unusual Trade, which is restricted to higher-value items. Every other trade server is either dead or is 20% traders, 30% beggars, and 50% f2ps goofing off with the minecraft trade map currently running. Either way the only way to really profit decently below 15-20 keys is by either buying/selling painted cosmetics for a profit (which is becoming harder with paint bots starting to exist) or to buy popular stranges with top-tier strange parts and sell them for a profit. Do that until 10-15 keys and then start trying to buy/sell spelled items for a profit, then at ~20 you start with unusual trading, since unusuals below 20 keys are almost always a waste of time.

    Fair Price for This Unusual?

    I personally would not take the offer of the double spelled blizzard beak. Your hat is more valuable and liquid than their offer without a doubt, even if the hat you have isn't popular in general (unusual-wise). I would strongly recommend that you ask the opinion of multiple experienced traders in the #trade-discussion channel of the backpack.tf Discord server to get a reasonable price estimate of your hat: https://discord.gg/f5VS7cr

  42. Shouldn't be difficult to implement. Basically, just apply the "voting power", which restricts users with low rep / low value backpacks from voting on or raising the price of expensive items, to the ability for users to even create suggestions on high-price items. Just look at the Gpan for why this should get done: https://backpack.tf/vote?quality=11&item=Golden+Frying+Pan&priceindex=0&tradable=1&craftable=1&state=0%2C1%2C2&unvotable=1&australium=-1&killstreak_tier=3&elevated=-1 Several troll suggestions so far this month from players with 0 rep and/or $5 peak inventory values, because voting power doesn't matter if the price you're trying to change something high-value to is within your voting power threshold. Doesn't seem to happen very often, but this is still kind of an oversight in the voting power system that should probably be addressed for the sake of price mods not having to deal with these suggestions anymore. Not like it happens that often or is particularly harmful, but still something that really doesn't need to be possible.
