Auction Bidder Deposits

Recommended Posts

Make it so users who are bidding on auctions have to deposit their bids into the site inventory first or when bidding on a auction so that they don't get screwed over because they won but they accidentally traded the ref or they won because they accidentally traded the ref with that id when they had enough ref to still pay or so they don't get screwed if they won but they for some reason can't like pay their bid because they for some reason can't be on scrap that day but can on another day. As for the auctioneer they can't get screwed by bids that are unpaid for. I know people would complain the system makes it take to long but it would be way more protection then it was before. For popular auctions I mean people can technically mass deposit keys ref n such and then use them to like make continuous bids on the auction

had to add what to do for popular auctions where people bid every few seconds

*above anything like that like they won but for some reason just couldn't pay atmwould save a lot of people from getting warned accidentally or getting trolled on their auction

Also this would prevent mistakes like people accidentally clicking the wrong item without realising because the item wouldn't be in their site inventory and give them extra time to think while their depositing their items if their gonna regret their bid or not ( I once made a bid I regret the guy was kind enough to reject the bid for me)

1. This would really affect most bidders a lot because most people only have a Limit of 5 Items for their Site Inventory so that doesn't really give a lot of room for people to bid unless you're at least P+.

 

2. As you said this would make the bidding process be longer than it should be. Say you're about to deposit items for a bid but someone raises the bid, you'd have to withdraw what you deposited/cancel the trade for what you were going to deposit and then choose the items again plus more to compensate the raise of the bid.

Not to mention it'd be even longer due to the amount of people who'd be in the queue to deposit their bids.

And then there's also times where Steam goes down or the Bots reset which would also make it take a lot longer.

 

3. Bots could/would end up being full.

 

4. It would require bots to trade with each other which would slow them down or straight up make them not work for a while.

I didn't realize 5 was the max rip I was mentioning people could mass trade so that they could bid even if its raised which I think would catch on eventually but 5 welp rip this idea

 maybe make it a choice before each raffle so that people can select that so that people on their own can stop people from like bidding massive amounts then not paying up if someone keeps doing that to them (Like my  friend) so then it could stop that but make its choice for people to have on so if they think it would actually Help them instead of cause them trouble they enable it if they don't disable it if they think people would bid in more then 5 disable it etc

So then from that people can make it their choice (I have a friend who keeps getting Extreme bids by people making sure others can't bid on their raffles currently

more complicated solutions to problems could be add a Bidding inventory to fix 5 max but that might not rlly help. Another is to let people use tips to bid. another is to make all these items go to other bots to feed different economies then make them like ur inventory for bids so then when a auctions completed all other bots gather the rewards and send them to one bot which trades them to a buyer kind of like a bank saving a little extra. As for cosmetics make it so like bots buy cosmetics/other bid items from bp.tf instantly or market place.tf instantly if they were already sold so they can send those in to the trading and such. Its way more complicated but could work. so then bots fund each other. and can control bids as long as the economy in scrap.tf doesn't completely crash and someone takes care of it it should work like a beauty

But this wouldn't solve any of the issues that it'd cause.

 

Also, people who bid and then fail to pay get banned so that's more than enough.

You said it yourself, this is just more complicated, too complicated to be implemented or probably even considered.
