Foamy the Fearsome

I just came across a few hats that are not officially priced in buds, but would be part of the hats we wish to reprice due to the inaccuracy of their values:
http://backpack.tf/vote/id/5648de2dba8d88205ca94a96I believe this was directly priced in USD previously
Updated this with dupes since the clean one is stuck in a tradebanned backpack

I dont know if they count for the target, but regardless, they're worth looking into/worth updating ;D

I actually remember making that suggestion and can confirm it was in buds, it's just so old that it isn't showing up as originally being priced as that

and yeah, those which are priced in buds but don't have the little indicator show up are still counted

I forgot about that. That was such a long time ago. Yeah, hats were originally priced in USD. While the suggestion may have been in buds, the site stored the price in USD.

Just saw this thread and I think it's a great idea and I would totally make unusual suggestions to reach all the goals myself if I could. :P

 

@suggesters: keep in mind that bad suggestions or suggestions which aren't clear or need more sales will be left up for up to a month often, so they probably won't help you to complete a goal. So putting in some extra work to make quality suggestions is worth it!

The prize will be rather unusual, just like the game title implies, as well as many other expensive goodies

What do you mean by Tier Three? I'm planning to do some suggestions today from this but I just don't know what hats need to be updated. >.>

Please explain.

Major Unusual Pricing Event

11/2/15-12/2/15

This will be a three tiered event, with each tier being reached and increasingly valuable prizes being given out

The goal will be what polar said, to update unusuals still priced in buds. An indicator an unusual is priced in buds is a weird decimal in the price. I will announce the numbers for the goal tomorrow. The normal weekly stuff will be going on during all of this.

I think this website needs some changes.

 
It is really unfair that if you make mistakes on your suggestion you get pwned so hard.  
 
When you make a suggestion you made a public post, that literally everyone that enters the homepage can see. You gave away all the important information you have been working on.
 
Lets say you cant continue and make it the right way for some reason. Then other guy takes your information and obviously makes a suggestion in minutes/hours on the same item you were working on for days/weeks maybe even months when it is not traded often.
 
I know this is a community and the goal is just accuracy. But as you can see your suggestions do count for something else eventually. Winning prizes in a game like this or Teeny Tiny Cat's. Gaining trust with people you just met and they are checking your backpack and profile. Even on your sales since you are being trusted as a guy that knows what he is talking about.
 
Hopefully i can see some changes about this in the future. For now, I am retired.

 

you should make a separate thread to take this issue up and get feedback
