Yes, I agree.

i also agree, isnt the rule you should have a pic anyway if your selling so they should add a pic if they have hed interest or not


just noticed you said when they have reserved the 1st post for a pic, if they reserve it immediatley then edit later it doesnt bump back up does it im sure it only bumps when it gets a new post so if they edit and add a pic it wouldnt bump, is this correct ?

the size of pic in 1st post is sometimes too small to see properly - people want to see what they are buying

There is no rule that they have to add a picture.

It doesn't bump it when they edit it, but they get a free bump when someone asks for a photo.

I mean they are reserving the 1st reply in a thread, not the opening post.

i know what you mean so someone asks for the pic this bumps in then they add the pic to the reserved bit ? i see what u mean,

i didnt realise you dont have to add a pic unless you had interest i thought u had to add one if you were selling thanks for that :)

^^^ Typical example of what I call bumping by proxy, regardless of the intentions. I've recorded my observations in that thread now.

Any pics posted in order to promote the sale unless part of the opening post (with associated reserved post) should count as a bump.

Further pics added as a result of a specific request would not normally attract a bump, although we would have to be happy that this does not get abused

(5) Please [COLOR=blue]Post Images (click for details)[/COLOR] including a piece of paper with your user name and date next to the actual items for sale. This helps your sale or trade by showing the condition, establishing validity and also that you have the items in your possession. If you post an eBay image or areunable to post any images, we may pull the listing immediately to request further information.

^^^ looks like a rule to me :)

It isn't. :thumbsup:

I agree with a time delay of anything over 15 minutes.

If the first post in the thread being reserved for pics was made within a few mins (usually straight after the thread was made) then that should NOT constitute a bump.

Anything over 5 or so mins, maybe even less, SHOULD count as a bump, bit of discretion from the mods wouldnt go a miss though.

I am not sure if you are understanding my post.

If I start a thread and then immediately reply in the 1st post "Reserved for pics if any interest", then any posts asking for pics should be classed as a bump.

If the seller doesn't expect any interest, then they shouldn't be posting the thread in the 1st place.

You know Sainty - I never noticed how much this happened - but you're right, the amout of "reserved for pics if theres any interest" posts are quite frequent . . . . . . and I agree re. the free bump when the inevitable requests come in . . . . . . hmmm . . . . .
