I'm new to Eve, but how the heck has this not been implemented yet? One of the most common things to do after running a mission is to sell all the loot you acquired from it. This basic idea has been proposed before:

1. Select multiple items via "select all" or ctrl-clicking
2. Right click on a selected item
3. [NEW] click on the "sell" command
4. [NEW] a list[1] pops up.

[1] The list looks vaguely like a wallet history or market order list in format... a bunch of skinny rows with various columns. Each ROW contains one item type which was part of the original multiple item selection. There are at _least_ 4 COLUMNS: item type, price for selling immediately, % from regional average, and a SELL button which lets you sell that individual item type from the list.

5. [NEW] Player clicks SELL buttons to immediately sell the items he wants to sell.
6. ????
7. Profit!

Obviously this could be extended to include more advanced sell order functionality, but I'll settle for not having to right click and price check/sell individually on 200 FRIGGING ITEMS after a couple hours of salvaging. Let me select all and price check and sell from a list, ok?

Seriously CCP, this should be easy.

Yes, good idea.

great solution to a simple problem. So on this list could there be a little checkbox next to each item, so if i spot something with a terrible price, I can un check it, then go to the bottom and press sell selected!

This is a good solution- take it to CSM via the assembly hall Linkage

I have added this idea to the assembly hall, please show your support there:

I don't see why they can't make it like reprocessing or at least I'd be happy with just loading 10 different sell windows in a grid on my screen. I guess the difference is they have to completely query the market for each item seperately unlike reprocessing which is related to your normal waste.

At the very least let me do 10 items at a time.

Yes, absolutely. It has the added benefit of encouraging more reckless sales of old hangar junk, which can lead to big bargains for the buyer and quick disposal of unwanted goods (without trashing) for the seller.

Talking with friends, I have heard speculation that CCP may hesitate to implement proposal because it would lead to spikes on database load when making many price queries at the same time. I do not agree, for the following reasons:

1. Database spikes could be controlled by limiting the number of items which may be mass sold: 20, 50, 100... anything would be a great improvement over the current system.
2. Database spikes could be controlled by having a 'wait time' between queries of 0.5 seconds or some other adjustable value. While it may take a minute to load up a list of 120 items for sale, it would still be a great improvement over the current system.

3. It's 2010, not 2003. Computer hardware has improved and presumably their backend has too. They should be able to handle a bunch of queries which are mostly going to be made anyway. Design decisions can be revisited as hardware becomes significantly more powerful, and now is the time to re-evaluate one of those decisions.
