  1. Hypothetical scenario: someone with a lot of keys/metal/items on hand decides to "buy up" the entirety of a bot's inventory. This someone is also an escrow account. Due to how escrow works, neither this person nor the bot have these items on hand, thus rendering the bot useless for trading due to having an insufficient inventory. This person can then cancel the trades and reinstate them whenever they wish, and keep the bot out of commission until someone intervenes. This is not, to my knowledge, the official reason why Scrap.TF refuses to trade with escrow accounts, however it's a pretty go
  2. Obligatory Geisha Mann drop. Just imagine there's Scorching Flames on there.
  3. This is what happens when you have two currencies, with one that's more easily obtained than the other. The one that's more plentiful has a tendency to devalue compared to the other. It's almost like governments get into a snit when this happens in real life! They tried that with the "Save the Keys 2.33" movement or somesuch thing like that. Didn't work out too well.
  4. Would Old School RuneScape count? I mean, they've drifted away from the point and click formula a tad in the current game, but if I remember correctly OSRuneScape is still very much point and click oriented. Bonus points for also being an MMO.
  5. So at first I was going to make a raffle poking fun at Auction adverts, but as I kept writing out my points, I realized that Auctions, as a whole, are very, very flawed. Here's why I feel this way, and I hope we can have a serious discussion about this. ((EDIT 03/07/17: The way I phrased some of this made it imply that all auctions are like this, when they really aren't. A good number of people are behaving adequately when it comes to auctions, but there is still the problematic sector. This is talking about the latter of these people. Also, apologies if some phrasing is otherwise confus
  6. I'd offer to help via S.O.S. chaining, but I don't think you can catch them in the wild in Sun. :x
  7. As displayed in the image, the raffle in question ended roughly two hours ago (computer time is in MST), and thus should be in the area of 3 PM. The time in the raffle is incorrectly labeled as 8:10 PM. This appears to be a case of the Scrap.TF time incorrectly labeling its time as EST, when it should be in another time zone altogether.
  8. I'm just going to assume that Raffle creation being down has nothing to do with hitting one million users.

  9. No. 1. That sounds painful 2. I already have enough going against me medically 3. I get queasy around blood You would receive a million dollars, but to receive it, you have to send your grandmother the contents of your porn folder. Alternatively, if you lack a porn folder, your browsing history.
  10. Managed to screw up textures making an objector. I don't think hl2.exe liked the idea of "Shpeel."

  11. Soneone on TF2 Outpost showed it to me when I was trying to hunt for Level 42 stuff.
  12. Naked pussy times two. Shh, don't tell the mods. Yes I'm trying to clean it up, I need to clean IRL stuff first.
  13. Escrow doesn't sound like a word anymore. Not that it did in the first place, mind :U

  14. I expect this to be locked for some reason at 87 comments.
  15. Probably for deleting my own post in an RP thread, when said post was written while I was under a lot of stress and thus the quality of which was below par. Because that's a totally legitimate reason to ban someone, and it's the only time I've ever been banned from any site without deliberately trying to get myself banned, and I'm not at all bitter because of it. Honestly, if I were banned, it'd probably be in direct retaliation to something stupid that the staff did. I... honestly thought about making a number of troll raffles during the whole "tip" thing to highlight how inane
