    Basically what the tittle says, I would like to know you all a little better so tell me, how was your TF2 Trading experience at first? Mine wasn't so great because I was a F2P and I saw gameplay of this game and I'm like "Gee, this game doesn't look to bad" And it wasn't at first until I ran into trading, There were so many evil people that just wanted my items. not to be my friend. and took advantage of me. (until I finally realize they were) in the case where I unfriended them and blocked them. Sometimes I still wonder. is TF2 really that safe.

    I could never manage to make any profit. Too many people would just give me pure and finding a quicksell is very difficult. I stick to csgo trading, and that has worked out quite well. Went from $20 to an m9 bayonet vanilla, still going.

    Congrats mate :D I used to be able to trade like that. (went from 1 scrap to 3 buds in a week, when they were 30$ each) But after the email varification thing. its gotten a bit more harder.

    You can turn it off if you did not know. go to profile, edit profile, privacy, then scroll down and click disabled.

    I know, but steam won't help you if you get hijacked (which I probably won't considering I know everything now) Learned that the hard way. Because I was hijacked at one point and lost 300$ worth of things so I would want that help haha.

    i loved every minute of trading even more than the game the reason why i traded for so long and made so much profit from so little is because i had a shit netbook to play tf2 in and the only thing i could do with 20 fps was sit in trade servers and browse through tf2outpost for good deals once i got a job and spend money on building a good computer i realized the game had no appeal to me other than trading so i sold everything and moved on to dota 2

    I got sharked out of a strange degreaser and then undersold a ton of 2012 Halloween shit and then keys went from 2.33 to 15 ref and I haven't traded since.
