[Script] Classifieds item URL history lister

Now you can make those meaningless repfarming quality suggestions even faster! As most of you probably know, when making suggestions for non-unusual items, usually it is good to link item histories so that you can later tell if items sold. The problem is doing that manually is a pain in the ass. This script rips links off of classified pages on backpack.tf and puts them into a list in a nice text box so you don't have to.

 

Please note that I have only tested and designed the script for Tampermonkey/Chrome.

 

At this point in time only classifieds pages are supported, not stats pages.

 

Here is an image of what the script does:

Why use a script for this?

The problem with the backpack.tf classifieds pages are that the item history links are not actually linked in the html. I haven't looked into it in detail, but I'm assuming it generates them with javascript based on the item ID. Long story short we can't just directly rip links and cutout the ones not needed.

 

Install: Github

install - make sure you click raw to install. If link is dead go through the github page because that link is static.

 

 

Also on an unrelated note I got locked out of my old forum account trying to change my name, so yeah. Feelsbadman.

Now all we need is a script that somehow quickly shows certain owners in item histories so you dont have to click on 100 item histories in a compare link when you want to find out for how many keys a hat sold :P

 

Looks like a usefull script, thanks!

 

Edit:

Also, you can check how many sellers there are at a certain price you want to suggest at and just copy those first item links instead of all

If you go to the date immediately following the trade (the second date in the compare link) from the inventory menu and sort by time, it will group items traded together. :P

It would be helpful if you could sort items leaving someone's bp by id groups, especially when one side of the trade doesn't update their bp regularly.

This was a feature of the original backpack.tf comparison script before it was integrated in the main site, its probably not possible to directly resurrect but I'll look into it at some point.
