January'08 Big Bang questions

1)How we will trade less common goods through completely blind GE? Should we post on forums announcements like "selling 30 fish potions(4) 400ea in Grand Exchange..."?
-----> see related Grand Exchange blindness suggestion
2)Will be player generated stock in general stores useful again? It is now impossible to sell stuff to some of them as they are always full of bargain usually too expensive for players to be purchased out.
-----> see related Bargain sale in general stores suggestion
3)How to share team loots properly?
-----> see related Manual Lootshare mode suggestion
4)How we will give gifts to other players? How we are supposed to make private drop parties again?
-----> see related Gift points (tokens) and gift wrappers suggestion
5)How we will do "trade for supplies"? All these trades are and always be "unbalanced" from GE point of view. This type of trade is very common and important for RS economy.

6)How we will do "running"? Why player, who really spent some work to get an item, is supposed to pay the same value like player who just go and buy it from store? It is probably possible to cover part of running business as special form of "trade for supplies" or by tweaked "assist" system, but what about raw material runners? And even if we use "trade for supplies" to cover running, how to do initial and final trade?

8)How to hire and pay bodyguards and mules? And how to pay for other unmaterial services?
-----> see related Long term loans & services suggestion
9)How to do long term item/money lending? Login session only lending is a bit unsuitable...

Note that even my questions start mostly by "HOW?" I consider "WHEN?" question very important too.
