  1. No incentive to read any raffles, which is the point of making a raffle.
  2. >no one can reserve an item >reservation only works when someone is trading with the bot There is reservation, and it's being exploited to drop the price of the unusual to a massive quicksell. This means that the site is losing profit in the unusual banking. Less profit = less server time = site is down.
  3. No one contributes to the mega raffle because it's stupid.
  4. We have an item blacklist, which is basically the simplest and only item category you'll ever get.
  5. This is for suggestions for the site, not for us to make you sprays for TF2. You should just make it yourself.
  6. Auction filters and sorting options were suggested way before. I'm all for the auction duration thing. If it's programmable. Item categories won't necessarily work because then you'd have over 10 different ways of auction payment and that will confuse users.
  7. Suggested multiple times before.
  8. Been suggested multiple times but nothing is done so I just gave up trying to fix auctions.
  9. There are no bots. What you see are people with their names and icons hidden.
  10. why do we keep getting new stuff when the old stuff is still broken

      All in the sake of preserving vanity, a endeavor to restore the pleasure that was once, a nostalgic remorse and longing that is to be fulfilled, perhaps it is simply a prospect of the human condition in a consumerist marketplace that has slowly evolved in confluence with our tactics of marketing.

      Because a new feature that might bring in 10000 new people is more desirable than a bug hindering just 10 people from doing a single specific thing.

  11. I've seen this happen both ways, and it's always the same. Somehow, updating the buy and sell prices for keys on the site directly meddles with the prices of items that people bid with. Let's take, for example, my 72' Taunt: I See You. It is currently priced at 28.5 keys and was shown as such, however, due to the site raising the prices of their key banking system, it's been lowered to 26.4 keys as shown below. This happens both ways, as a decrease in the site prices causes the item price to rise. This directly affects its price and is not just a visual bug. https://scrap.tf/auctions/O9WH6W The auction above proves that it's not just a visual bug. Given the 80% item factor and the minimal bid, I should have been cleared to bid this only (28.5 x .80 = 22.8). However, due to this site-wide update, the price of the taunt was treated as shown, and I was asked to bid 19 more refined. Below is a closed bug report about this issue made much earlier. I do not know if it was solved for a little or permanently. My suggestion is to make adjustments automatic for auction items, or possibly remove the connection between the items and the site updates. It might be possible that the site-wide key prices are bypassing the pricing from backpackTF, as I'm sure this is where most of the prices for items in auctions are taken from. Regardless, this is detrimental to auctions, seeing that key prices will begin to rise exponentially as before soon enough. Users might be able to use this to outbid others when they should not be able to, and possibly "shark" users out of items. Note: I do know that there is a manual fix to this, and I'm not sure how easy it is, but it might be useful in the long run if there was an automatic way to adjust this Here are some more screenshots of the problem: This one involves an item with a price range, rather than a specific price. Should be worth 14.5 keys. This unusual is rounded to a price of 15 keys. Also has a range. Most recent evidence. Keys were raised to 26 refined. Even more evidence. Price range of 28-34 keys, treated as 28 keys, and now lower than that due to key prices rising.
  12. Yet another example. Same unusual, but the price of keys was raised from 25.66 refined to 26 refined.
  13. 100 keys*
  14. That someone is Geel. Who never really works, per se.
  15. February 15th you said on this topic 

    Each item has a specific coding/ID. These IDs are what the bot looks for when paying for an auction.

    Seeing as you don't have the exact gift bringer anymore, you cannot pay for the auction.

    You will receive a ban from all auctions for seven days.

     

    Will this be the same for me? Can I avoid this outcome?
