Idea for preventing misrepresentation of items


Recommended Posts

As we all know a lot of newbie traders get easily scammed by being offered a Strange Festivized instead of Strange Festive weapon. Or uncraftable instead of craftable version of some promo items (like Lucky No. 42). So my idea is to have similar alert as for the one for users that are being often impersonated. Something like that:

I know there will still be people who will always fall for these scams, but I think this would stop some attempts, as scammers usually send links to the stats page of the misrepresented item.

Is there a difference between a strange festive eyelander and a festivised one?

I don't think it's possible to festivize an Eyelander, so for now only a Festive Eyelander exists.

Mengh did, a while ago.

 

Nevertheless, its a good idea. It might not stop all from getting scammed but even if it stops very few out of many from getting scammed via this method, thats a win in my book.

His idea actually looks better, with a red text and a link to the Festivized version. The only sad part about this is, it's still not implemented after almost 3 years. And yeah, I also believe there will still be people falling for this scam, but at least sending them this link won't work for them anymore.

This is an amazing idea, good thinking. I wouldn't mind seeing this implemented immediately.
