Some members don't require pics, hence as long as it's created at the same time as the thread then it's ok meantime. It's fair to say that some may try and abuse in order to gain further bumps re member requests. If this happens, the thread gets locked until provided. If I'm in any doubt that the item is not in possession (as sometimes is the case), you run the risk of a permanent lock/infraction.

If genuine, the thread gets locked, reserved post used and no gain is made by the OP if caught early enough. Leaving it longer than 10 mins or so runs the risk of the thread dropping away from the front pages.

Thanks for unlocking.

It;'s threads like this:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/712128/fs-hd-dvd-seperate-priced

They wrote reserved but clearly had no intention of posting pictures until someone asks for them which is a free bump.


The seller has a good reputation, most will be happy to trade without reference to pics for low price items and doesn't fall into the category that I've mentioned earlier. I'm sure the seller will be grateful for the cross promotion though.

I know, but why reserve a post if they were never going to post the pictures anyway.


becuase if it comes up and he needed to post them it would save him a bump
sometimes you just dont have the pics handy and its likely you wont need them so you reserve anyway just incase or it comes in handy reserving for updates, i cant see the problem unless like asb says you have people bumping and asking for pics then its used as a bump and ends up locked but then you can report it and a mod will get them to add pics or lock for 7 days

I understand what DCX_badass is refering, even with my thread, if the thread would of had more interest I would of uploaded the pictures, but the main ones pulling in buyers were sold, I was about to post the pics when I ran out of bumps so I took them elsewhere.

i thought if a post was reserved and someone then had to ask for pics then this is seen as a bump? still think you should have to post pics on upload, its unfair on those that can be bothered, like the ones that post at 8am then say pics up tonight, in the meantime they get 5 or 6 interested on pics posts, then anther 5 or 6 after pics from same members saying after pics they no longer want as not what they are looking for, nice 12 bumps for nothing and maybe just one off the op

yes but if someone says interested in this would be seen as a bump, if there is no pics or if they say pics please this would be a bump also but it needs to be reported, ive seen mods quote "interested in" "pics please " "also interested" etc and say you have used 3 bumps any further bumps will result in a lock etc,

but it does need to be reported, really you are better off uploading a pic or you could face wasting your bumps i do agree with you.:thumbsup:
