There is a problem in branch sales. All sales offered for GB fall behind everything offered for SB, and there are many inactive or nearly inactive accounts with branch prices that were never changed from the default price of 999,999 sb. For example there is currently a whole page of Zebra Carcasses for 999,999 SB. (This is only one of hundreds of items I have personally observed where dozens of items for which prices were never set block the view of items for sale for GB.)

I've put together a few suggestions, but any change that results in the branch sales getting cleaned up would delight me to no end.

My personal favorite idea: I'd like to see branch sales that never had a price set expire after 30 days. Not all branch sales would expire, ONLY ITEMS THAT NEVER HAD A PRICE SET. This would clean up the branch sales a great deal, it would also give players a chance to address their branch long before the branch sale expires. IF someone actually wanted to price an item that high they could set it to 999,998 sb instead.

A different way to handle the issue would to default sales for 999,999 sb to fall after GB sales on branches. (My vision for this is similar to how pre-crafted nesting materials were coded to fall at the top of the list for nesting lionesses last year sometime.)

The only other option I can think of would be to mandate a price be set when posting an item to branch sales. This is more complicated to code and doesn't solve the issue of all the sales currently that currently exist for 999,999 sb.

Or even when an item is put on a branch it's "unavailable" and invisible to searches until you update the price.
It's so annoying to see default pricing

Bouncing off of Kraft's idea, it could be like studding where it defaults to a price of 0 and 0 instead of 999,999 and as long as both are set to 0 it will be marked "unavailable" and not show up in searches. This will also help to get rid of the long chains of 999,999 items between the high and low priced items.
