    Welcome my friends! I heard your cries, your screams, your tantrums, and I have decided to grant you your desire! For you, my dear denizens of TF2, have been clamoring for an automated scrap banking site! It fills your dreams, it haunts your nightmares, and it is the very embodiment of what this world needs.

    What is this magical solution of which I speak? Why it is, of course, TF2Scrap!

    Alright, time to cut down the bullshit and explain this shit.

    What is TF2Scrap?

    TF2Scrap is a new automated scrap banking service. Besides normal scrap banking, it also features reverse scrap banking. That is, you select your items, give it the scrap, and GO!

    What is scrap banking?

    Scrap banking is as follows: a scrap banker, normally a human, will allow people to give him any two craftable weapons (of any two classes), and he will give them a scrap. Reverse scrapbanking is the reverse: you give the trader a scrap and choose your two weapons.
    TF2Scrap does this differently by automating the entire process. Simply add yourself to the queue and one of our bots will add you.

    Is this free?

    During the beta phase, it is entirely free to use TF2Scrap. No charge of items or money will be required. However, AFTER the beta phase, things will be slightly different. Because we need to maintain scrap levels and have a high enough stock at all times, it will work as follows. Normal scrapbanking will be entirely free, no strings attached. However, to access reverse scrapbanking, one must pay a small fee of a certain amount of metal (currently undecided). This will either be a one-time fee or a recurring fee, depending on how well it all works out.

    WELL HOW DO I USE IT?!

    TF2Scrap is now open! Access it here!

    Who made TF2Scrap?

    TF2Scrap is a collaboration between Geel9 and Jessecar96.

    Worked the first time I tried, I traded 4 weapons to Pandemic. Second time, Little Scrappy added me but didn't initiate the trade.

    Clicked initiate trade again, it worked that time.
    Donated a ref.

    You might have taken too long to respond to the friend request.

    I don't think so, I clicked the friend request pop up right away and accepted. But anything is possible.

    It sometimes doesn't give you all the items you want. For example, I just reserved 2 family businesses and the bot is only giving me one

    It's fourty seconds long. Thanks for bringing it out attention; that's the point of a beta. Appreciate it.

    Edited:

    Unfortunately "reserving" isn't fully implemented yet. Somebody got the family business while you were in the queue.

    The bots don't automatically scrap the weapons, do they?
    So I should probably old off on sending them ~300 weapons

    They have the capability, but it'll only be done manually (reverse scrapbanking needs weapons to function)

    Once you get reverse scrapbanking working right, you could get something that automatically scraps weapons if you have more than a certain number of them. You could adjust the number per weapon, so more popular ones will have more in stock before scrapping. Automatically scrapping Targes and Razorbacks if you have more than 20 of each or something like that.

    I'm not saying don't accept them, I'm just suggesting it so you will have more scrap for people trading weapons in, and you don't have to do it manually.

    Yeah, that's actually a great idea. Only problem is that there's so many items and setting a "max" for each would be problematic. We'll figure it out. Thanks!

    The bot's currently having some issue adding people for some reason. We're unsure as to why or who.

    Actually, it appears you're not online on Steam...

    Your steam client. Now you need to retry the trade on tf2scrap.

    Vintage and strange weapons give errors instead of being counted as a donation.
    Named/described weapons give an error.

    By gives an error, I mean that it says there is an error, but doesn't give the error type.
    The error is that you won't receive scrap. I'll look into it. Jesse may have made it not accept such items.

    Yeah, I am fiddling with things. Those types of weapons just seem to screw stuff up.
    I snipped the part you quoted because I actually forgot to add two items into the trade, so those errors were probably justified.

    At this point, it seems that strange weapons count as a scrappable weapon only instead of an error or donation.

    They shouldn't. The item id and whatnot is exactly the same, it just has a different quality that the bot shouldn't take into account

    Edited:

    Correct. Strange weapons are counted as any other weapon.
