An idea to help make posts in the market simpler to find.
It will provide sellers greater exposure to those searching to buy.
Buyers will see items similar to what they want to purchase when searching.
If your not around to *bump your thread it can still be seen via search with like items.

How does it work?
For those looking to sell items you can add a prefix to the description, which most do already, [WTS] = Willing to Sell or [WTB] = Willing to Buy.
By adding additional information to the prefix it extends its visibility when searching for items in the market.

Examples:
[WTS-A] ATI 5970 Lightly Used 4 Gamez - $250 in BTC / OBO
[WTS-B] Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 - $75 - BTC Preffered
[WTS-B] 15x GA-990FXA-UD3 - Divorce - 1BTC - One Per Person
[WTS-P] Wireless Electricity Generator System - TeslaTechGuides - 100BTC
[WTS-A] 15x 5970's Priced to Sell - $300 + Free shipping - BTC only

[WTB-K] Silver and Gold - We Pay Spot - Bitcoins Paid
[WTB-A] ATI 5970 - Good Condition - Will Pay Up to $450

When searching you just put "WTS-A" in the search box and everything with that title will show up in results.

Currently I have a partial list of Category Codes that covers most items.
As needs arrise I will add more if this is adopted by the community.

Category Codes

A = Graphics Cards ex. ATI Radeon 5970 (OEM replacement fans go here.)
B = Motherboards
C = CPU, Memory, Flash, HDD
D = Power Supplies
E = PCI Express Risers
F = Water/Air Cooling
G = Games, Game Codes, Game Systems, Trading Cards
H = Complete Mining Systems
I = Gift Cards
J =
K = Bullion, Coins, Stamps
L = Laptops
M = Phones
N = Network Equipment
O = Other Computer Parts
P = Books, Manuals, Magazines, Periodicals
Q =
R =
S = Software
T =
U =
V =
W =
X =
Y =
Z = Schwag

This same coding could work when listing on the #bitcoin-otc marketplace.

The listings in the order book do show a column for BUY/SELL but it can be awkward.   Specifically, today somone wanting to buy a "Gadget" might enter the order as a SELL (meant as-in selling BTCs in exchange for the Gadget).  And the -otc marketplace doesn't already have a category code so this would help when eyeballing the list.

What I would (also?) like to see is for the forum software to intercept the wording WTS or WTB and change the text color accordingly. Perhaps WTB is green and WTS is red. If this were not possible, we could instead standardize on a post icon to indicate selling or buying? Which icons should we choose?

@rjk
Those are great visual cue ideas, they don't help in the search field, but can be useful when just browsing the sale section.

I think they have plans in the new forum for the site, but not sure what they specifically are planning.
