Promoted buy order listings, anyone?

This'd be additionally to the 3 promoted slots for sell order listings (so 3 slots for sell orders, 3 slots for buy orders). Could help out people who really wanna buy something, but there's none for sale at that moment and just overall would further help you promote what you're buying!

It would be neat! But when someone really wants to buy something and pay Top Dollar™ for it, they'll normally just use Premium to find the owners and ask them directly. It'd probably also have conflict with the Sell Orders on the main page, and people would get confused. Are LTB threads allowed on the forums? They'd probably be suited better, if they are.

Some are scared to be a nuisance in case they don't (at least at that moment) sell and get blocked by them

Well, in one way or another, the promoted sell and buy orders would have separate sections. Id assume best way would be for the promoted sell and buy order sections to "flip" in real time every like 5 seconds in the same box where currently the promoted sell orders are

Pretty sure they are, however forums is not a place where your "buy order" will be anywhere near effective :kekw:

Honestly when I first read the title my first thought was "What would anyone use that for?" and this was my first thought to which my opinion is that's a stupid thing to use it for as presumably the item you're trying to get is rare if there's none for sale which means you should be premium searching and directly looking for people who might sell and offering to them. Putting a promoted listing that's applicable to like <100 people is a huge waste not only for the use of your promoted slot but to any other potential listings that could have been displayed.

 

The other use I thought of is for minor quickbuys on popular items IE you have a listing buying keys for like 1 ref under current bot buy orders but it's still higher than what the front page's key price is so you're banking on an uninformed person seeing that you're "paying more than what the key is worth" and then blindly sending an offer without further thought which is kinda scummy ngl.

 

The final use after giving it more thought is just doing random shit and putting generic buy order messages like "Buying 1000's of unusuals for more than top buy orders, add me!" which is just gonna be downright spammy and annoying.

 

Overall bad idea, someone looking to sell something is going to go to that item's page, not "impulse sell" based on some front page promotion listing.

Maybe that particular point isn't the best example for how it'd be useful, however this is:

The usefulness of the idea is as simple as that, drawbacks would simply need some rules/counters or whatever in check

We are assuming different things, the first point would be reasonable to expect from the devs I think, however adding a whole new box to the front page would require more work than I think bp devs would do, especially real time flipping. With that in mind a useless sell order taking up a buy order's slot on the existing grid is what I meant by any other listing being displayed, if the devs went the extra mile sure I can see it working but highly skeptical, not to mention adding the new grid would require a *decently drastic* change to keep it on the initial page (no scrolling needed).

Well yeah, any new suggestion requires devs to work, that'll never change no matter what the suggestion is
