When you sell an item on the market atm, you only know because of a silent flashing icon and if you check your isk balance.
I think a far, far better system would be that if we got an alarm and a audio conformation such as
*loud sound* ARRUGA, ARRUGA, ARRUGA, ARRUGA
"pilot you have sold an item"
*loud sound* ARRUGA, ARRUGA, ARRUGA, ARRUGA
"pilot you have sold an item"

i think this would improve gameplay by 147%

Thinking before you speak is something that would help too.

Because clearly the OP intended this to be more than a joke

Now, more than ever, we need a dislike button.

Maybe your screen should start flashing bright yellow too to catch your attention when you finish training a skill, sell an item or get a chat request.

Some people might like an achievement when they salvage each wreck as well Lol

I don't think this would be helpful. Often when my items are being bought I am too distracted by other activities such as pvp to give the market my full attention, therefore in addition to the proposed audio confirmation I suggest that a "you have sold an item" notification window appear in the center of the screen.

Most people will likely close this window as soon as it appears without actually checking their transaction history, so the window should probably appear multiple times in short succession.

Don't worry OP, most 'comedies' at the movies are embarrassing and dull too, there might be a future for you somewhere.

Everybody on grid should receive a loud alert with the words 'Now look at [character's name here]'
