You can donate items and turn them into credits on the website!
In order to utilize the bot (including being eligible for giveaways), you simply need to click here and enter your Steam ID and Trade URL!
Simply go to the profile of the bot and Add As Friend to send it a trade and it will go from there!
Before any trade offer is accepted it will tell you how many credits you will receive for the items you have offered and you can accept or deny it on your discretion. I don't want anyone to feel like they lost their items by accident so that is why I made it like that.
For donations of items, you will get 80% of the total cost and this can be adjusted as needed.
I will be adding further features in the future based on requests and general needs! Some of the features include a fully automatic donation system so items can be accepted once more with complete automation, as well as maybe a trading system of sorts!
Giveaways will now be automatically happening on the servers with donated items!
A giveaway will happen automatically every hour as long as there are enough linked players on that server.
All items donated will be given away on the servers to help incentivize people to continue playing on our servers and boost population!
It is currently being tested on Trade Gaming History but if successful it will be rolled out to various other servers!
The item reward you can get is based on the number of players on the server. The more players, the higher tier item you can get. If the server is completely full you have the change to get the most premium items in the bots inventory.
For sake of being transparent, here is a general explanation about the selection process:
It will gather a list of all users on the server and check if their Steam account and Trade URL are linked to the forum. At least four players must be linked. Then it will choose the tier based on the number of linked users and begin the giveaway from there. Players are chosen randomly and there is zero weight being applied to anyone. If there are enough linked players where multiple tiers can be viable, it will choose a random tier from the list of eligible ones. No tier has any weight attached to it so the rare items are just as obtainable as the crappy ones.
Remember: awful items are due to people donating awful things so don't treat the bot as a trashcan!
The tiers available are as follows:
Player Range | 4 - 8 players
Price Range | $0.05 - $1.00
Player Range | 8 - 14 players
Price Range | $1.00 - $1.75
Player Range | 15-22 players
Price Range | $1.75 - $3.50
Player Range | 23 - 30 players
Price Range | $3.50 - $15.00
Player Range | 31+ Players
Price Range | $15.00+
Overall, I hope that this helps get players onto the servers as well as helps us populate new ones much quicker than before and that we have giveaways that actually happen and don't rip off players like other servers and communities like to do.
Please help out by sending a trade offer to the bot today to get credits and to keep the giveaways going strong!
Please offer any suggestions or report any bugs immediately!
