Lol, don’t remember 9 cent gold pans?

I do not see a 9 cent gold pan https://mannco.store/item/1761

 

The only problem ive ever had with mannco.store has is traffic, but that looks like its gonna be changing soon.

Since you refuse to do any research on your own, here is an official statement from the site owner regarding the incident https://steamcommunity.com/groups/manncodotstore/announcements/detail/1691561768405162221

Unfortunately the reddit post where everyone was ripping them a new one was deleted out of a PR move but I am sure the nice folks on the backpack Discord can continue the story.

 

Now whether you believe in the 9cent pan, the DDoS allegations, all the other shit involving Sparta and Alex on the internet or not. Matter of fact, a site that holds your TF2 items has admin privileges that allow changing of the item's price. The sheer fact that this exists as an ability outside of the DB is absolutely insane.

 

Also the fact that the dev is SR marked for, according to his defense, buying the account that got him marked, which is against the Steam ToS. https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197964027496 https://forums.steamrep.com/threads/appeal-76561198026734540-peanuthero-mannco-trade-banned-by-sr.180729/

 

Use the site as you may but stop pretending nothing ever happened.

having my unusual go for 1.50$

I'm not taking any sides here but I find it curious how people who refer to this incident always only tell the first part,

as if intentionally trying to create impression that some sellers were ultimately robbed of their items.

 

Also interesting how every "MPTF replacement" thread quickly transforms into a discussion how bad Mannco.store is ... 🙃

Well I did not know of this incident before but it literally says "The items of users that we were not able to save we will 100% refund in cash or exact same items." so I do not see what the problem is? They had a security breach and took full responsibility for it, if anything that makes them more trustworthy. 

 

Also while buying an account may be against steams TOS, that has nothing to do with actual scamming and steamrep is a third party website that is supposed to warn us who is scammers so we avoid being scammed by them. Though I understand both situations, steamrep can not lift bans just because someone says they bought the alt or real scammers would be able to use that excuse. They want to avoid any false negatives at the cost of having some false positives.

The entire reason this incident was a thing is because site admins were able to change a user’s listing price. If you think that is okay then I don’t know what a site has to do to break your trust. 
 

As for the tag, I never claimed the aforementioned admin was a scammer. I clearly said he was tagged due to an account he bought, which is a violation of the TOS.

So the point here was he bought an account and not that hes marked as a scammer? What is so bad about buying a steam account? that it violates TOS? buying and selling items for real money probably violates steam TOS.

 

Also about the item price changing thing, its their website, they should have full and total administrative control over it. This is like when someone got access to a twitter admin account and was posting fake tweets asking for bitcoin from real famous peoples accounts. The only problems with that website are that its not noob friendly and and the traffic is kinda low, but its been growing and im sure their website might crash when marketplace closes like bitskins did when opskins closed.

Forgivable

I partially cashed out again because of this, I am afraid no proper alternative will show up and that will greatly impact the economy somehow. Maybe I overreact on this but I dont want to leave thousand dollars in my bp knowing Mp will shut down.
