Not getting my proffesor speks.
Well, I just gave the upgrade to premium gift to a friend, he used it but I didnt get my proffessor speks even though he gave me nothing for them in the trade. Now I feel scammed because I bought that gift mainly to get the glasses.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think people who get upgraded to premium with the gift don't get the notification to give the specs to anyone right now.

Now I feel even more scammed. The wiki says that it should give me the speks.

Giving the gift to someone just to get the specs is kinda silly, IMO. But if you don't get them and the wiki says you should, contact steam support.

It seems to indicate they would at least get the list to pick from. They don't have to pick you.
Search the inventories of friends of this friend?
I wonder if they have to pick the exact moment they upgrade or if there's a notice you can choose from later. Perhaps they only get one chance to pick and their computer went down.

I didnt give it just for the speks, I said mainly for the speks because he didnt care much about the premium.

I didnt know about the list, I though it was only when you bought yourself something from the store. He disconnected right after checking everything was right so I am sure he didnt notice it. I will tell him and see if the notice is there. Thanks for helping.

I read that you have to restart TF2 in order for the speks to show up in your inventory.

Gifting this item to another player will give the sender the Professor Speks item.

The "bought premium for self" speks allow you to choose who you send them to, but the "got a premium gift" speks send them to whoever purchased the gift. That's how I see it.

That being said, if you still don't get the speks for some reason I'd be willing to make a cheap trade since I still have my speks giveaway from when I upgraded myself to premium.

"Gifting this item"...
Perhaps exchanging this in a TF2 or steam trade window isn't enough.
You obviously can't test that now with this guy. Once you go premium there's no going back.
Also, I never purchased the upgrade item nor traded anybody and I have a speks with 2 people on it. I have no idea who they are/were either.

You can get the speks if someone buys premium and chooses you from the referall list, apparently you have 2 nice friends that have chosen you.
