Challenges of the week

A Delicious Cashew

Introducing Challenges of the Week. This is something Aaroncsn and I have thought of to try and update some old prices

 

In short: Mods challenge unusual suggestors to price x hats with y restrictions in a week. This doesn't mean suggestors shouldn't price what they normally do. This is just something that will mainly focus on updating old prices, something that is much easier to do with the help of the 3rd and 4th link in the links of reference

Potential future challenges:

Price x unusuals in a week

Update a hat for each class for each generation of effects, each day
 

Looking for feedback, any thoughts on how to make this better? Prizes may be involved later if this is successful.

 

Random key to help you understand my symbols:

<= less than equal to

>= greater than equal to

I really thought the unpriced would be harder to do than the year outdated hats.

New update, the target for unpriced unusuals has been met. Current count:  15/75 and 25/25.

 

The outdated ones i have not include 2 years outdated unusuals. There are a few that has been updated since the start of this week's event. Let me know if you want me to add those in. ;D

Can you add ones for those who cannot Suggest Unusuals? :c

 

Like

 

'Update 10 strange weapons'

 

or

 

'Raise something from (Insert Update name here)'

 

It will give us low-tier suggestors something to do and make us feel like we mean something :c

There are unpriced hats that have over 40 in existence. Pretty easy if you can cherry pick. Some 1/1 hats even have a bit of activity, enough for a suggestion.

Well, you guys do mean something but the priority currently is on unusuals. The low tier items are very frequently updated anyway so a challenge would be redundant.

If cherry picking were really that easy then we'd be able to price every 2013 effect but some are more difficult than others because they just don't sell. Right now 4 of the 9 Kill-a-Watt Tartan Spartans are up on outpost and only one of them has sold in the past two months with two of them not having ever been sold.

 

 

...

Between scout and soldier alone there are ~1700 outdated and unpriced unusuals. There are only, what, 2000 or so non unusual items in the game right now between all other rarities and classes?

9 isn't exactly close to 40, and if only one has sold in that time frame you could still make a suggestion, js.

Y'know, you can just edit your current post and say 'Last updated: *date*' it saves this thread from constant posts

Bumping this thread often could help more people get into the challenge though and keep it in the first page. At least in my opinion.
