TF2 Outpost was a website where Team Fortress 2 players could list their items that they want to trade. More recently, the site also allowed for trading of general Steam items, Dota 2 items, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive items. It was launched in 2011, making it one of the earliest TF2 trading sites.
The three Outpost sites shut down on 2018-10-01 around 18:45 UTC.
Though sold to ZAM, most functions have continued on. Potential concerns would likely originate from an abandonment of Team Fortress 2 or a downfall of the Steam platform itself.
TF2 Outpost announced early on September 11, 2018 that it would shut down after the end of September.

Ultimately the cost necessary to operate this site has far exceeded any revenue generated forcing us to take this action. We'll be leaving the site open through the end of September so please wrap up your affairs/trades, etc., as this functionality will no longer be possible once we close down the site. All accounts and associated data will be permanently removed once the site is shut down.
If you're a Premium user, who has purchased Premium within the past 30 days (on or after August 10, 2018) you may contact us via our Support Portal to request a refund, regardless of duration. If you purchased Premium before this time, no refund will be provided; however, your Premium benefits will still work on some of our other network sites, like Wowhead.com and Hotslogs.com, until the subscription expires. If your Premium subscription is set up for automatic renewal via PayPal, please end automatic renewal in your PayPal settings, or if you signed up via direct credit/debit card payment, contact us via our Support Portal to have this recurring transaction disabled.
If you have any further questions, concerns or inquiries, please create a ticket in our Support Portal.
We're sorry for everyone inconvenienced by this closure but we wish you all the best; thank you for the years of support!
Trades: increments by 1 for each new trade made, such as "/trade/10000000".
Profiles: doesn't use 64-bit Steam IDs in URL, instead also increments by 1 for each new user that signs in, such as http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/1. Entering a 64-bit Steam ID will still work, provided that the user has signed in on any site, such as http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/76561197984820423. This won't redirect to whatever number they are however.
Although the site also operates under the Dota Outpost and CS:GO Outpost names and domains, differences between the sites appear to be purely cosmetic in nature aside from a stream list and a "Most Traded" list using streams/items from their respective game. Example: a trade ID of 1 if used on TF2 Outpost (http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/1) and CS:GO Outpost (http://www.csgoutpost.com/trade/1) would still lead to the same trade made by Sneeza from 2011 when it was still just TF2 Outpost in existence.
