Yeah this would be laughable for me
Posting it for the lols
how to professionally waste time
How would they even implement an anti-laundering system anyway.
I sold some Gold Paint late at night to buy a friend of mine a spy hat later
Ends up, my gold paint was the last thing sold to the WH
I don't understand how this can be at the fault of TF2WH. Every single trade is tracked and the whereabouts of every single item is known by Valve, so what's the point of trying to implement some magical anti-stolen-goods process on the website? If this were such a big deal, I'm fairly sure that the people at Steam Support could have restored the poor guy's items (and account) in no time at all.
I kinda hope they do something about their inventory though. The majority of the high end items are mostly dupes. (All the max heads for example.)
well, at least the site's fast now.
I wonder if this will lead Valve to make their own WH type system
It would be easier for them, the items could just live in a database somewhere, no need for cumbersome bots. They could verify every item instantly upon trade.
Not sure how they'd set prices though, probably more automated than the WH
Seriously, add a 7 day waiting period before items sold to the warehouse are listed, problem solved
They should add the abilitie to "lock" an item in your backpack, resulting in it being untradable untill unlocked.
No password or something, just a long delay between when you choose to unlock an item, and when it actually become unlocked (between a few days and a week).
That would prevent stolen account to immediatly trade everything away: collectors could just lock all the stuff they have no intent to sell, so when their account gets compromised the hacker would have to wait a few days before being able to steal the item (assuming steam support would take action before that time).
Sadly this would only work if Steam Support's reaction time was fast, which I doubt it is.
-snip, I thought the announcement was made just now -
Another update: http://forum.tf2wh.com/discussion/46...tion-an-update.
Wouldn't be surprising if they implement SteamRep checking of profiles sooner or later.triddin posted:

Where did they say he's high respected?
Also, what you did on tf2r made me ooze hatred.
I loved that place to buy stuff that is incredibly hard to get off from players. Took me days get a Vintage Sports shine, which I could've bought instantly from WH.
Hopefully something will be worked out, trading with other players is just ugh.
Thanks to TF2wh I could finish my vintage (weapons and hats) collection. In tf2op, all of the prices were inflated.
The problem here is not Tf2wh but hijackers
re: The Director,
To the best of my knowledge he has traded for every item he owns, nothing to do with Steam support (well, except for now technically I guess).
I don't know if this has been suggested before, but what if they strapped a little tracking number to every individual item, similar to the crafter's name. Someone reports their number to Valve if their account gets compromised, and valve can just remove the items from the account(s) and return them to the owner when they get the account back and the person holding an item with the number is notified.
