Anyone else have a hard time telling software from services in the BST/Marketplace?

    Made a forum suggestion to DD and the admins over here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...gestion-distinguishing-software-services.html

    Anyhow, just wanted to know if anyone else has a hard time being able to tell if a thread (based off of its title) is going to be promoting software or a service?

    It was easy with the old BST because they were split into different sub-forums, but that's not the case anymore with the new Marketplace.

    As a buyer, it's much harder to tell if a thread will be promoting software or a service.
    And, as a buyer, I want to know in 2 seconds or less what they're promoting...without reading a huge graphic that takes forever to load.

    Despite the issues for the buyers, I would think that BST/Marketplace sellers would be affected the most, as their sales probably drop simply due to it being harder for the buyers to filter out the software from services and vice-versa.

    Thoughts from fellow buyers and sellers?

    I get what you are saying. I don't wanna complain too much but yeah its not as good as it was. This is from my point of view as a buyer and seller.

    It would be nice to have software and services separated as the cost difference and wants of the buyer are very different for services and software.

    Very good point about the cost differences and wants of the buyers.
