Idea: Update and restructure the market so that visibility and availability of player tradable items will be higher to the eve community

Example: Removal of all T2 blueprint items in the market (I.E. Recon Ship Blueprints), Addition of BPC's to the market, Addition to higher meta level items to the market (I.E. Faction and Officer modules [Cap boosters was a good start]), ECT

Reason: To decrees the learning curve for new players with respect to item procurement, and to spur more supply and demand with respect to the Secondary producer market (QEN) and end consumer Items.

Pros: Creates new markets for player trading
Increase the availability and visibility of Secondary producer and consumer items for new and old players alike
Decrease the reliance of the contract system, and increase the visibility of price history for statistics and trading purposes.

Cons: Price fluctuations within the market system
3rd party programs/websites will need to be updated (I.E. EvE-Central)

Removing T2 BPOs I can support, on the condition that we get an easy item search feature. It's absurd that the best way I have of looking up stats on a hictor blueprint is to type in a chat channel something like abroadsworda and autolink the "broadsword" bit, click my link, and then delete the whole thing and repeat it again for anything else I want to look up(the a's are there as padding, so that the link goes away when I delete the text, instead of attaching itself to whatever I type in that window next). But yes, assuming we have a way to search up the blueprints taken off the market that isn't idiotic, I support that change. Nobody holds a packed T2 BPO any more.

Addition of higher-meta items to market? Sure. I've supported this for a while.

Addition of BPCs to market? Lol, no. It's completely impractical. Do you have a market for each ME/PE/run combination possible, or do you throw them all in together and have a meaningless hash? This needs to be done through contracts, as do rigged ships, full containers, and the like.

Easy: Make all in game items searchable in the market finder, but don't show the normal market interface for contract-only items, instead a link the contracts for that item.

Easier: Link your item, watch what you were searching for, CTRL+A (select all) what you've written, DEL (delete selection), ENTER (send "nothing" to chat).

Sounds more complicated, time consuming and long-winded as it actually is. Basically, sending an empty chat box does send nothing, not even a blank line, but it clears all former content, this time that pesky invisible link.

I agree with you.
