The new "tf2-outpost.com"

I first saw this site like 2 months ago, assumed it was a scam, and moved on.

I got bored and logged into it today, wanting to do some research.

 

-I signed into the site with steam, they didn't ask for my login credentials and steam guard code cause I was already logged into steam on my web browser. I checked my recent login history on Steam and saw nothing unusual. I also did a test deposit on marketplace.tf to check if trades get redirected. Looks like I haven't been phished...yet.

 

-The site didn't require me to "deposit" any items to bots.

 

-You can actually make trades on the site, by logging into steam the site can see what items you have as long as your privacy settings allow it. It's a bit glitchy though.

 

-There seems to be real people using it, you can see each user is a real steam profile through the site and see that the items they put in their trades are actually in their inventories.

 

-The site is trying to copy the old outpost as closely as possible, IDK how the trademark/copyright/trade dress laws work with shut down websites, but I doubt ZAM would be cool with it.

 

-There's no indication of who made the website at all, no "about us" page, no listed mods or staff, all I could find is that the website domain was registered in the Czech Republic. https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=tf2-outpost.com

 

So what do you guys think? Is the site legit? I really want this thing to be real and to get popular. Most of my trading profit was made thanks to outpost and since it shut down I've been in a trading rut.

Use Bazaar, its safe and good site with nice features.   :)  I saw that "New Outpost" but i wont risk to be honest, im just using Bazaar, BP.tf, bp.tf forum, steam groups, reddit and tf2 steam trade forum.

Just here to clear some things up about phishing;
1) The green lock does not always mean it isn't a phishing site, for example the "checking your item index" scam fakes it with HTML as a fake in browser popup.

2) If you click the login button and are "redirected to steam" and the URL shows this image.png.5ca03d93a9658b6958ffd2e9752dda5f.png

instead of this image.png.7c595ef693525c1ad2bfa84b79c2abf9.png

The site is a nope

 

3) If you click the login button and are "redirected to steam" and it shows this   image.thumb.png.d691e29e1cb42eb85ebcc7f0047d3c3e.png

(as you can see, i am already logged in). Its not a fake login.

 

3.5) If you're not already logged in: Open steam in a new tab and log in there, then refresh the login page you went to via whatever site. If you're still not logged in then i'm 99% sure its not a safe site either.

 

As for the site in question, i dont see anything wrong with it at this time. Just someone (single dev afaik) trying to revive it again.

No dodgey occurences when you login like a new window coming up with locked address bar. Address bar was visible and editable so no phishing going on.

Site started fine and it would really grew up, many people get used to it and guy decided to shut it down.   WTF  🤔

 

How do you know he shut it down, did he say as much somewhere?

I thought it might just be down temporarily, well that's what I was hoping, since I've grown to really like this new outpost.

 

If true, I hope he reconsiders and brings it back online.

From his Steam profile: 

Dev of http://tf2-outpost.com (community spinoff project)
Since this personal project project grew too much recently and gained attention of public I had to shut it down until I receive response from owners of closed website this project "was inspired" by whether they allow its existence or not. I'm sorry guys, I believe this is the only right way at the moment. We will see how it goes.

Ahh oki, thanks for the info. So there still maybe hope of a return. It would be great if the previous tf2-outpost team give this new venture their support, don't see why they wouldn't.

 

Fingers crossed

Update: The creator made a new website called https://tf2trade.org that is essentially the same thing. Seems the new tf2outpost was taken down due to legal/trademark reasons. 

Hopefully this site won't also abruptly be put to an end.  

 

locking this thread to avoid necro's btw
