Why is it that the last key suggestion got rejected when the vote was 71%?

The whole point of voting and suggestions is so the prices were based on the community's choice (please correct me if i'm wrong) so why didn't this vote get accepted when 71.78% voted yes???

the voters in key suggestions are heavily and openly biased in their voting.  the votes are taken into account for every other item, but keys are such a touchy subject that it relies entirely on the proof.  the previous suggestion for keys showed a massive amount of buyers buying at 5.44 ref.  any sales below that amount would presumably be from uninformed traders, since they could easily get 5.44 from 30 seconds of searching.

 

the prices aren't determined by the community's wishes, but by its actions.

 

 

 

Here is what Sir J-j-jon said before he closed it:

Buying for 5.55

I Just got 100 refined from a big crate trade and needed them turned into keys asap. That is exactly 18 keys @ 5.55 each. I spent 20 minutes refreshing tf2outpost and only got 7 keys for 5.55. I also missed about 7 because anything at 5.44-5.55 was bought out in seconds. I ended up buying the rest for 5.66 becuase I was not about to spend another 30 minutes for 1 ref.

anyone who sells for 5.33 either a) does not care about key prices, b ) is ignorant that he can get more, or c) wants to sell his key for less to "stop inflation" 

Because all you have to do is spend 10 seconds to find someone who will pay 5.44 or even 5.55

People seem to think that "keys dun ned to go up" is valid counterproof, and therefore feel the need to downvote perfectly accurate suggestions that raise the price of keys; therefore, many of the accepted suggestions to up the price of keys are accepted with <50% positive votes.  Same applies for this suggestion.

simplified: because the voters are retarded

I was gonna say the same thing, 'cept with the word "biased", but this works better.
