I am new to this forum so others might have ask for the following improvements to buy/sell orders already.

Order creation:

1) When you create a sell order, do not bug the person with a popup if within 1% of the lowest sell in region. This will cut down on spurious popups.

2) When you create a buy order, do not bug the person with a popup if within 1% of the highest buy in region. This will cut down on spurious popups.

3) When you create a sell order, PLEASE warn with a distinctive popup if 5 times or higher or lower than the lowest sell in region. This will help catch off by 1 digit errors.

4) When you create a buy order, PLEASE warn with a distinctive popup if 5 times or higher or lower than the highest buy in region. This will help catch off by 1 digit errors.


Order modification:

1) When you change the price of a buy/sell order by plus or minus 1% or less, do not bug the person with a popup. This will cut down on spurious popups.

2) When you change the price of a buy/sell order to more than 5 times higher (500%) or lower (20%) than it currently is, PLEASE warn with a distinctive popup. This will help catch off by 1 digit errors.

Order fulfillment:

1) If you attempt to buy an item for more than a current sell orders, just charge the lower amount. This will help ease the pain of an of by 1 digit error.

2) If you attempt to sell an item for less than a current buy order, just sell for the higher amount. This will help ease the pain of an of by 1 digit error.

3) If you attempt to create a buy/sell order and it is immediately fulfilled, do not change broker fee. This will cut down on the pain of having your buy/sell order time set when you just wanted to buy/sell something immediately.


If there has been another thread that has addressed these requests in the past, please point me to it.


Thanks!

Really like the item modification by 1% or less not generating popups. Those are infuriating when I've done a buyup to try to resell higher.

Order creation:
1-1) Yes.
1-2) Yes.
1-3) If 1-1, yes. If !1-1, i don't care.
1-4) If 1-2, yes. If !1-2, i don't care.


Order modification:
2-1) Yes. As in "on a scale from 1 to 5", 6.
2-2) I don't really care, but it does not seem to not be a good idea. Not not supporting that.

Order fulfillment:
I'd say no for all of those, because i don't appreciate a game doing some choices for me. I understand why it could help some people, but i'm not going to support it.

I'll repeat here I've said many times before...

There is a need to have sub tabs for the Sell/Buy order tab in the wallet. At any given time i have 150+ orders out and it's a bit of a b***h to keep track on them. And there are people out there who regularly have more orders out then that.
