First let me thank you for this great game. Its really fun (even i only find useless melee uniques :D).
I spend much time playing it. I love trading stuff but from my point of view (and from the point of many others) its difficult and annoying because players have to post their items in the chat over and over again.
I tried to join this forum but I don‘t get the validation e-mail (maybe because im armor player? EDIT: now i got it. your forum doesn't like german email accounts i think (gmx?) - i had to use a google mail accout).
I also tried to contact you via e-mail but you didn‘t answered/got it/saw.
Last weeks I was thinking about how to improve the trading for all players. About knowing what other players offering or looking for.
I programmed a little fan-website and now I like to have your okay for running it.
First I started it for the [BRD] as an intern website. Now I want to make it more public.
Because I‘m no programmer it‘s a very simple site.
I never posted this link public in the chat. I explained it and whispered the link to interested players. Most of them really like the idea!
Here‘s my idea:
People can show me up to 10 items they like to trade and give me ingame 1-2 keys (depending on the level sum of all items) for my work (need 2 min per item). I don't take real money! I don't want to make money with my idea. The keys (or items like weapons, nades ...) will allways be in game and will be used for trading and helping team members! I'm not selling stuff to the users from outside of your service. It's more like doing a favour, helping them selling their stuff and show it to the whole world...
I will make screenshots, edit the html/css and add the screens of the items to my website.
Interested players can visite my site and hover over the items to see the stats and the sellers name.
They have to contact the seller in game and talk with him about pricing and trading.
The trade is also in game! After selling an item, the seller contacts me and i delete it from the website.
It‘s much work and first I will see if it‘s worth (Do users like my idea? The plan is to run and keep this site updated till october).
There is no need for using my website - its just an option. All players still can use the chat for offering items and finally they need it for trading. It‘s just like a bonus overview. A special service.
I like to push my project forward and would like to have the absolute okay from you because some people think its illegal, an exploit(!?) and against your terms.
Let me tell you that I don‘t want to put illegal stuff on it. I don‘t want to change the construction of the page only editing and adding the items. No illegal advertising, viruses, porn stuff and so on (you can ban me if I would do this - i take all the consequences for running this website).
Oh yes, the background-image: If you don‘t like that I‘m using it i will delete it. I uploaded it to my server so you have no traffic. Just say a work.
I know, it's little bit difficult but most players i was talking with really love the idea. They really want an improved trading system here in game (maybe for you as a little feedback again).
Hope to hear something this way from you.
Hopefully and thankful,
