Make classifieds "smart"

Recommended Posts

I get kind of annoyed due to the high amount of items that get priced at x.51 keys. http://puu.sh/7Aqfd.png like this one. The idea was to not make users list their stupid .99 prices, and I'm very grateful, but smart it up by making it automatically change this to x.5 keys, which is of course what people attempt to use that.

I think that when you want 1.66 for a hat, after this update in the asking price you should put 1 ref 2 rec, but people still put 1.66 ref as the asking price. That annoys me. Am I even right or just an idiot?

Why? You can easily hover over the item icon and see the precise price user is asking for.

It's not that I want to see what they're charging, it's that I think it looks ugly

No. Prices for everything should be rounded to 2 decimal places for consistency.

 

Any painted/whatever item you have is bound to have a non-rounded price.

What? There is no separate input for refined and reclaimed when placing an ad.

This way you can clearly distinguish between different ads. If there were 2 ads with the same calculated price but different asking price, that would not be good either.

And make the MVM section easier to navigate...

 

It's pointless making classifieds for expensive Kits and Fabricators since you can't differentiate Regular, Spec, Pro, or even by weapon. I went through 16 pages of Fabricators and still hadn't reached the Pro Fabricators.

You can search by weapon.

 

All fabricators for bonesaws for example: http://backpack.tf/classifieds/search/id/52e6680d4dd7b8656e8b4567

It would probably help a lot if fractions were used instead of decimals. For example, 1.5 keys could be 1 key 3 5/ref.

You can plainly see that you need to pay 1 key, 3 ref, and 5 scrap.

That still doesn't help me if I only want to look at Professional Kits, or Professional Fabricators, or Specialized Kits, or etc.

Search for the item "Kit" using the classifieds search. If you are searching for a specific weapon, input that into "crafting target".

Just warning you, killstreak kits and fabs are not commonly listed due to the difficulty of searching them.

There's kits listed for almost every weapon. In some cases tons of normal kits for particular weapons. The pro kits are sometimes pushed many pages to the back. My suggestion would be sorting the list by reverse value but I'd have to check if that's possible. (not possible currently)

 

Plug for my scattergun pro kit and example of the search http://backpack.tf/classifieds/search/id/52d872f24cd7b84a2c8b4568

Doesn't help me separate the pros from the specs.

How is that better from just typing "1" in the key input and "3.55" in the metal input?
