at marketplace there should be 2 categories for each section: offers with price and offers without price

i dont like to read many postings "selling blablabla pm me"

i prefer to read name of item, number of offered items and price per each item but it is hard to find such offers if they are not separated from the others.

The market doesn't need to get bigger. Truthfully. The reason for this is the cost of items fluctuate. They can go up they can go down. Instead of constantly updating their threads with the price changes they request to be pm'ed in game. Also means they can be bartered with. As you can say well I don't have exactly what you're looking for but I have x, y, or z. Would you accept that instead.

Yes I agree it can be annoying. However it's unlikely to change.

Could be more convenient to have an in-game market board so to speak, where such posts can be read right in game and 1 click lets you pm the person or something. Wouldn't need to post on the forums even, you'd just set it up right in game. Could do both though.

if a player is most of the time online and available to be pm'ed then it is another story.
but most people who dont give out any details show up only seldom.
and then you wait and wait and keep them in your friend list and finally manage to see him online but get told, item is allready sold or the price he asks for is not attractive for a deal.

i can fully accept that some players make advertising in the forum to get attention even if they only want to sell items that are not hard to get from ge for higher than GE, or if they hope to get items cheaper than from GE.

i only want that those players who accpet to give out a detailed info (buying /selling price range or eventually an exact price and number of items (and maybe even their usual online times to contact them), that those customer-friendly people get an extra section to reward them for being helpful trading partners.

if somebody is really searching for deals, he will check the normal forum and also the special section with detailed price info, but the special section will just help to make it more comfortable for players with less time.

@Tranq: "The reason for this is the cost of items fluctuate. They can go up they can go down. Instead of constantly updating their threads with the price changes they request to be pm'ed in game"
it is very easy and not a problem: player gives offer with fixed price, but the market does not accept the price, then posting will just be ignored.
if player does not give out price info, but he has a price in his mind, then people will continue to contact him even if the marketprice fluctuates in the direction that makes a matching deal harder. so the posting still steals time of people.

if player uses BUMP on his posting, then it shows that the price info is still valid
to add the extra section / sub-folder for marketplace offers with price info included means a very little effort for jagex.

it can mean some effort for forum-mods to transfer postings which do not contain the required info in the special section, but if it gets too hard, they can just do it on a weekly basis perhaps

if player does not BUMP his posting and it is allready over 1 month old, everybody with a good brain will understand that maybe the fluctuation of the price could have made the the offer obsolete.

if i personally make an own thread about buying or selling something, and somebody contacts me and would agree to my offer, but i dont have the item for sale any longer, or i dont accept my offered price anylonger, then i would at once change the posting.
full deleting is not possible, but editing , for example replacing the text with a dot
