It's not complulsory, but will obviously help a buyer or seller.

[COLOR=#0000ff][COLOR=blue]NOTE[/COLOR][COLOR=#8b0000]: [/COLOR][COLOR=blue]Please post images of the actual items for sale to show[/COLOR][COLOR=blue] the condition and that you have the items in your possession. Thanks![/COLOR][/COLOR]

Thanks Ray. :thumbsup:
Would it not be a good idea to make it compulsory?:? It 'helps' prove possession, doesn't it?
#3
If I were buying I would want to see the item for those reasons. But it's down to whoever is trading in each thread.

Some people do have valid reasons for not being able to post images, in which case they would probably lose potential buyers.
#4
I don't understand, if it's not compulsory and is only to 'help' with the sale why do you and some other Mods put this in some FS/FT posts:-
rayman
Please post images of the actual iterms for sale :) Thanks.

You give the impression, because you are the Top Mod that it's something that has to be done.
#5
I take your post above rather personally dino.

That question is like me asking you:

Why do you post [COLOR=#0000ff][COLOR=red]I'M NOT A MOD, [/COLOR][COLOR=blue]I'M JUST A REGULAR POSTER LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE"[/COLOR][/COLOR]. When everyone here knows you're not a moderator.

The reason we ALL ask for images, is to help both the buyer and seller in For Sale or Trade.

Why are you taking it personally? What's up with you?
I mentioned you because you followed me here (link below) and posted the quote:-

As for my 'sig', because of my style of posting some people think I'm a Mod, it's the way I post and that's it. If you remove that part from my sig I'll stop C&Ping it.

I've always found that quite odd aswell:- We know you aint a mod, so why post it? If you were a mod, you wouldn't be a solar flare, would you?
#8
To be fair, the FS/FT thing is getting silly. We all know what we need to do to feel safe, if people ignore the advice then its up to them. noone can be forced to add a picture if they can not provide one. I think getting personal is un--nessisary (sp)

Dog breath posted a while back that he thought I was a Mod and a few other members agreed with him. Hence that part of my 'sig'.

Sorry, I don't understand. I can't see how I have made it personal? :? :? It isn't.
Somebody explain. :x
#11
I think the FS/FT area works fine with the advice given. With everything its up to a persons personal choise wether they are going to follow the advice. You soon learn how it works in this place. We need to just stop bothering about other ppl so much, yeah we worry ppl are gonna suffer etc but its up to them... as in friendships etc we give advice that is very rarely taken but we cant MAKE our friends do anything...unfortionatly noone can just let things be...theres always someone not happy..its always gonna happen...and dont think for one second im aiming this at any one person...i have huge respect for everyone that has posted on this thread...

Bloody hell, this started off as a simple question, A SIMPLE QUESTION and it's got blown up.

im not aiming it at anyone...im just saying..when 2 ppl disagree on something in this forum it seems to get personal and saying rayman thinks hes top mod and all that is getting personal...u no i respect u etc steve...im just saying it really has nothing to do with any one person how a person decides to buy/sell etc on here or anywhere...ppl will either listen to you/rayman/me/others...or they wont...

I said:- " you are the Top Mod " to Ray. The ModFather. Father as, in charge?

IMHO ebay pictures shouldn't be allowed. Yes, they do save time, but a) they might have been taken from another auction and b) they are not a current photo of the item for sale...

There should be a piece of paper with the members name and HUKD's address next to it to prove some form of authenticity :)

like anything I asked the question and I did think you were a mod and sometimes reading some of your posts the statement still stands, the thingy on your post about not being a mod , do you really need to state the obvious ?


oh and the dog breathTM thingy... lou lou started that did you check if she didnt mind you borrowing it ?

Yea soz, I'll check with her next time.;-)

I'll stop posting that bit about not being a Mod, it's just the way I post, blunt and to the point, most of the time. :roll:

Thats actually rather rude! Dino has a rather valid point and is entitled to his opinion as are the rest of us.

I can't see why people can't have pictures - they could surely borrow a phone or camera to get the picture taken - even if it means posting it a day or 2 later?

I think pics are more or less compulsory anyway, Everyone asks for a pic to prove they actually have it anyway.

The FS/FT/Wanted needs more doing as there are still a few people getting scammed now and again IMHO, What it is that needs improving i don't know!

I personally see the potential risks and wouldn't buy anything until I can make a valid judge of character.
#34
If pics are taken the HUKD user id should be written on a piece of paper by the seller to prove it is their picture maybe?

I agree. I also think it should be compulsory.
"Either post a actual pic or your post will be removed within 12 hours". :whistling:

To solve all arguments, get rid of the FS/FT all together! :thumbsup:
#37
but like im saying....anyone can do that....they can have the item...and still scam..

we should concentrate more on educating new members about verified paypal, as its the only measure im comfortable with when i buy...

Hehehe, good idea, but Members will try and sell their items on other forums on HUKD. :-( :roll: :roll:
