The marketplace is becoming a vibrant place but yet the forum is not made for operating as a market bazaar.

I would like to propose a few features:

1. Jobs, offers feature filter. Simply put, being able to views all the jobs and offers being advertised on the forum and hide miscellaneous forum topic.

2. Reputation system relating to selling and buying things.

3. A way to post and track specialized forum topics like jobs and offers.

Maybe having some other site specialise in such things could be useful, and might please those people who would just as soon not see job X or product Y advertised here at all...

But the forum IS the epic-center of the bitcoin economy.

Nobody cares about visiting some other site to post their job offers. They all have a very tiny fraction of the traffic in the bitcoin economy.

About forum improvements:

I'd love to be able to track responses for given thread (for example with e-mail notification). It's kind of a common forum feature, and with amount of posts that are here daily, it seems really useful for somebody who does not have time to track all threads.

Variance is a bitch!

Maybe it is better / more convenient for people who are against nuclear proliferation to be able to find all the offers relevant to their bias (and involving bitcoins) right here instead of having to wonder where else it might be happening that they don't even know to look for it at?

I'd like to see a separate forum for mining. Lately mining posts are filling the Development and Technical Discussion forum.

What about advertisements?

The forum could make some btc with a few advertisements that are paid for in btc. This is where the bitcoin community meet, it is the ideal venue for advertising for bitcoin related services and paying for the advertisements in bitcoin.

Maybe witcoin can be used to establish these communities?  I'm still working on implementation of ugcategories

Well, the marketplace IS the economic hub of the bitcoin economy.

Honestly I'm only really missing a few core features I've seen in all other SMF forums, namely notifications for new private messages and a "New Posts" icon next to each thread that brings you to the first unread post in the thread.  The second one is especially annoying for large threads where I first have to guess which page I last left off on, then find the last post I remember reading.

After you click "Show unread posts since last visit" there is a "New" icon that brings you to the first unread post in each thread.

Hm, alright well that's a start.  I guess I'm just used to having that button show up when browsing the forums individually.  Personal preference in viewing styles I guess.
