    Not sure if this is the right section but I assume that someone on staff will read this. You can turn off the email confirm thingy and it is simple to do. To disable the email confirm by going through this link: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197970267736/edit/settings/ BUT! You must read this because lots of people have trouble with this and complain it doesn't work, or it's bugged or whatever. It works. Read on. - To actually get the email confirmations disabled you must do exactly this. Give me all your items. (Only joking) What you need to do is, on the settings, at the bottom it shows Enabled and Disabled (Or something to that effect), you want to click disable, then a box pops up saying for you to confirm it, agree to that THEN WAIT. Don't click save, that's where people screw up. Go to your email, you'll find something like this: http://i57.tinypic.com/11h5jjc.jpg After doing that, THEN click 'Save', this is when it should give you an email like this: http://i58.tinypic.com/2up7dqb.jpg Now you should no longer get email confirmations when getting, sending, or offering a counter offer on trade offers.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this solution. It is clearly a personal choice whether to disable the email confirmations, and has been met with varying opinions in several other threads.

    The WH does not consider this an option for our bots for security reasons. We are close to implementing a solution which should see us up and running again within 12 hours. For more information please view http://forum.tf2wh.com/threads/valve-trade-changes-site-downtime.7967/#post-61577.

    As this solution has already been the subject of, or discussed in, several other threads we will be marking your suggestion a denied.

    Also, as I said in the other suggestion that had already suggested this (In the future, please do a search to make sure someone hasn't already suggested it, especially since you click a box stating you did such a thing):

    You should really be more careful when suggesting this to other people, and should be open and honest about everything that happens with what you are suggesting.
    Yes, it does disable the e-mail confirmation.
    But it also disables your ability to turn to Steam Support for any item recovery.

    That's a pretty big issue that should be taken into consideration when deciding to follow this step, and should definitely not be ignored or not mentioned.
