Adoptable Category?

I know that adoptables are a source of much controversy for many, but I also know that a lot of people really enjoy them. It occurred to me that it might be neat if there was a way to submit adoptables as their own category, so that people who do enjoy them can browse them, and potentially people who do NOT enjoy them can avoid them altogether. Additionally, have an 'available' tag on the ones that are for sale, and possibly shuffle the sold ones out of that category as they are no longer available.
I did see an Idea post about having an auction submission category, and this could potentially fit into that same category, but might be better as its own thing.

Sidian, we're working on getting the commission system refined right now. I know that we're looking at the auction category for that, as well, and we're planning to implement that system. I know that some people do adoptables as a flat price and some as an auction. Others have also suggested a type of store system for characters or art that have already been created (like prints); that might be the best idea.

We're also looking into separating commissions into different categories - artwork, stories, etc. We could possibly do sub-categories, as well, but that might start getting a little convoluted; we'd want people to be able to find what they want while keeping it as simple as possible. What do you think? I'd probably want to throw this around a little bit before checking with the devs on time estimates.
