    Back in the day, the old BST forums would separate software from services by putting them into different sub-forums.

    As far as I can tell, the new marketplace groups everything together to the point where I have no idea if a thread in there is going to be promoting software or a service when observing the thread title.

    Assuming there's no current way to tell the difference, I'd like to suggest the admins implement something that allows the users to be able to tell whether a marketplace thread is going to be promoting software or a service. And I mean a way in which we can tell just by looking at the title (tags won't help here).

    A simple way of doing this would be to prefix threads with [Software] or [Service] and not have that count against the user's thread title limit.
    Otherwise, I find that it wastes time going through all of those threads when you are specifically looking for software or specifically looking for a service.
