Steam Inventory Helper was super useful for selling hundreds of cards at once, but it's dead now. The Reddit thread has a break down of the code in the top comment which is why I linked it, but the picture alone should make you uninstall it

I'm sure Steam doesn't really want people using scripts/bots to access their inventory but if it results in them making way more money I'm sure they'll look the other way while their pockets fill up.

Seems like this is the kind of thing you'd want to be open source just so nobody could f*** it up like this.

I don't understand why Steam doesn't just have the functionality built in. Selling hundreds of cards at once at market price or any variable around market price you set, automatically pulling back any over priced cards etc was amazingly useful

I've said that about a lot of various little things over the years. Sometimes I can email someone at valve and they'll add it (if it's simple), but most of the time if it's really useful but would take more than 20 minutes to code it, they're just more interested in doing something else.

I'm just not certain what change in Steam's infrastructure prompted the change in the coding of SIH. But either way I removed it, even if it's benign coding I'd rather not deal with something clogging up my browser more than it already is... which is not very.
