I think the market system needs some more love and more features.

First, when changing a market order I want to change the runtime of it too. Very often I use a wrong run time, eg 24h. I don't know why the shortest order time is default anyway, most people want 90days.

Also I think a 5min delay for changing orders is too long, in Jita I get beaten in price ten times in this time frame.

I would like some more structure in my orders too. Something like the market cathegories (Ships, Ammunition etcpp) and a Search function. And please seperate buy- and sell-orders, it makes no sense to have both in one window and just wastes half of my screen.

Also if I see on market an item for 100isk but then I put up an buy-order for 200isk then I should get the item for 100isk, but I still pay 200isk. This is not how a market works.

On the other hand it sucks to get beaten by Cent-Peddlers, e.g. a price war which runs like 10.000.000, then 9.999.999,99, then 9.999.999,98... either limit changes to at least 0.5% of the volume or make changing an order much more expensive.

As far as I know, pretty much all of the Lol Aaaargh Lame (aka LAG) in Jita is caused by the market.
I understand that it sucks to be beaten by a penny, but removing the 5 minute timer would probably result in a Jita where a buy order would take 30 minutes to update anyways.

NO if anything, the order modify timer should be moved to 1 hour.

YES 90 days should be default and there is now a "remember" setting that works so what's the problem?

YES categories and by region of your orders would be very welcomed by the trading community.

NO Cent peddlers are fine, if you give up, they win, if not only BPO holders can make a profit by selling near cost and it would devalue all items. It ruins a lot of opportunities.
