How would you improve the GTN?

Allow people to put up buy orders where other players sell to the buyer at the specified price.

Buying crafting schematics would be much easier if we had the option of only showing schematics we haven't learned yet.

Would be nice to have a simple way to price cheack your items.

much like you can link it in to chat just a method to click on an item in your invent and list the items currently for sale that match your item.

would be alot easier.

Wouldn't a cross-faction GTN be kinda bad, lore-wise. Maybe planet specific cross-faction GTN, like on Nar Shadaa?

I think having a cross server GTN would have market ramifications that we couldn't even predict. You are also assuming that the magical Bioware tech wizzards already have it in their hat to be able to do that, whereas it seems like it would be reeaaalllyyyy complicated to me.

I know it's really simple, but being able to TAB through options would help me a lot. Having to click everything gets annoying when I'm trying to set up sear parameters.

Other than that, it works just fine for me. I think having an automated undercut feature, or something that alerts you to someone else undercutting you is just kind of silly and pointless. And it also makes it so that people who aren't online constantly just plain lose.

Bug fixes would be awfully nice though.

I don't really have a problem with the way the GTN is currently set up if they would just fix the bugs. Some of the menu choices require you to select a rariity level when browsing but, as long as you know about it, it isn't a big deal. The worst part is that the filter doesn't work. I look for augments every couple of days and see a ton of Might augments listed. However, when I enter Might into the text box to filer the search results, almost of the Might augments appear:

^^ That would be handy, too.

Alot of items no longer show up if searching unless you choose the rarity from "any". Space equipment, mounts and companion gifts are just 3 of the items affected. Wish they would revert to "any" showing all.

Step 1:

Fire the developers who created the original version.
Now playing:
Revolverheld John <Das Wayne-Vermächtnis>
Sithdartha <Das Gautama-Vermächtnis>

A cross server GTN would be a HORRIBLE idea! Each server's economy is unique. A cross server GTN would obliterate that. I'd be floored if they added that.

I loved the idea of the contracts, this could really improve monetary income for crafting-lovers, also, I do think cross server GTN could be implemented, but the sinc of the trading would be a nigthmare, so, if someone could get a vote for, I'll vote CONTRACTS!!!!
The force shall free me...
