steam market [can't list items]
Is anyone else having this problem? It's been going on for a few hours now. You can buy items but can't list them, which is pushing the prices of EVERYTHING up.

"We were unable to contact the game's item server. The game's item server may be down or Steam may be experiencing temporary connectivity issues. Your listing has not been created. Refresh the page and try again."

Possibly server overload / failure / maintenance. Steam community/market is running like a crap since 2013 :D - because of trading bots that overload the servers

How prevalent are these trading bots? How can we know for certain that its not just a massive overload of regular users (CSGO has grown significantly in the last 6 months)
PLANTROON Apr 1, 2014 @ 7:41am 
Those bots keep reloading market web pages just to get the cheapest item. A human won't be pressing F5 for 2 hours non stop. If there were no bots, those servers would only be failing during events (steam summer/winter sale). Both regular users and bots cause the overload but the server capabilities are sufficient enough for regular users. Blame bots! :D

Have the same problem "We were unable to contact the game's item server. The game's item server may be down or Steam may be experiencing temporary connectivity issues. Your listing has not been created. Refresh the page and try again." But I've seen the item being sold from 7 cents to 8 cents back to 7 cents which means other people are listing the item. Sad times.
`kev1NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN Jul 22, 2014 @ 8:08pm 
I found out what the problem was specifically for me. If I purchase an item while I'm in game, steam somehow doesn't properly recognize the item in my inventory and therefore I can't do things with it (ie sell that item). Eventually the problem went away (weeks if not months). If your going to purchase an item, close any game your in.

Some game items are the same, so its not listed.

Getting the same error:

"We were unable to contact the game's item server. The game's item server may be down or Steam may be experiencing temporary connectivity issues. Your listing has not been created. Refresh the page and try again."

have tried restarting steam and going through a browser. Help would be much appreciated

There are a few stories floating around. Another post says that its been happening for hours now. Someone on reddit says that steam got attacked. This post[dev.dota2.com] says that the Dota 2 market has been fixed. Some say that even the trading isn't working.

EDIT: added relevant posts, fixed grammer
