Default For sale section

Can people please give the rules a re read over in the trade section please, thereís been a few posts reported recently for no photos but that rule only applies in the kits section.
Also lots of people posting in that section without photos, itís really not hard to upload photos to the site.

Thanks

As it's so easy, maybe the sales section needs a rule update, and pictures on all sales items, then buyer can see what's for sale ?

Taken from the std for sale section rules

"New member RULES (not guidelines!)
New members (or members without positive trader feedback)MUST provide pictures with their threads, at the time of posting the thread. (pictures must be of actual item, not library pictures). Once you've had one thread closed (or been warned once and failed to upload pics again), all future threads without pics will be closed without warning.
New members (or members without positive trader feedback) are forbidden to request paypal gift payments until positive trader feedback is received."

Not that I care, but surely reporting someone using a report button should be confidential?

You should have to pictures up with whatever your selling not just kits and whether you've been a member for 10 years or 10 days same rules should apply to all

For someone to be a member here for 5 years and not receive and negative feedback either helps. Weíve only been enforcing the photo rule in the kits section but Iíll put a poll up and weíll run it for a month and see what people want itís the only fair way.

I think you also need to add in a rule that a post for a sold item need to update with "SOLD" when it has and not totally deleted.

Also a rule needs putting in place that if the post isn't deleted then the price needs to stay in the post and not over written with "SOLD"

I've always went by that every post needs a picture. Parts can be just as expensive as kits - i.e motors / speed controllers etc.

For the small effort it takes to upload a picture its silly not to - even just to prove its validity.

I totally agree with this, it also gives a reference if someone decides to sell something similar to get a guide price. I always put pictures with everything I post and never delete the post, just mark it as sold

As usual there are different opinions

I agree that all sales whatever section should have photo it aint difficult. If I can anyone can
if you want to sell your stuff a photo should be no hardship
too often we see " cant upload photos pm for pics" that doesn't cut it for me

thankscto all mods who give their time free to monitor this site

regards dave

As per my reply on Poll...

"As a general rule I make initial contact on here then request extra pictures via whatsapp anyway. Selling a chassis recently I did a video to show each outdrive, details of any damage etc.

I do like to see pictures but the whole 400kb size thing is annoying...take pictures on phone, email to Mac, re-size, then clunky upload.

Is there not a way to allow forum to just accept bigger files? Then auto delete all adverts and associated files after 6 weeks?"

Also agree re not removing adverts, gives a better idea of what things are worth, especially for newbies looking to get second hand start up equipment.

In that one post you've just answered your own question. The files are small to keep the forum at a good pace and to keep the content active.

You want to keep threads for future proof of costs etc, yet want to delete them after 6 weeks to make it slightly easier.. it cant work both ways.

I use Imgur now that photobucket inst usable without a subscription. You can upload them via your phone and then copy the links over.

The whole process for a good for sale ad takes about 5 minutes. For the return you get - especially when paying no fees - is a bloody bargain.

Is it worth having a sticky on what hosting sites work on the form ?

Smugmug works fine.
Imgur work fine
