its t watty, pics should be uploaded and ready to go before you post in fs, 30 mins and still none and i thought we were going down the whole post reserved for pics route too, so posts dont get bumped by this

I find it unfair. Those that put IPP, believe they have automatic right to it. Even if they come back an hour later.
It loses buyers. If i see a few IPP I dont even bother staying to look at pics half the time. Others must do the same.Maybe its time others put, items for sale. Then say in post, Ipps not allowed or somat. If hukd wont do as a rule.

I thought if people posted that and the OP hasn't bothered to post pics then each request/interest pending counts as a bump at the OP's expense..............and if it doesn't............well it should. :D

Just make it possible to post pics in the thread starter and not allow threads without them. Simples. Tccchhh.

I thought it was supposed to be stopped already!

It is so annoying.

So is somebody that writes a new FS, puts no list in the OP, then adds a list but with no sizes against things, then adds pics without reserving posts, then gets a load of questions about the sizes and "I'll take if it's X size" then another "I'll take if it's Y size" and so on. Then finally adds the sizes but by this time has already had 10 bumps just from that. THEN it appears they know not how to multi quote thus bumping the thread 20 times during their replies!

It needs to be one rule for all not one for some and another for the rest.

Now i'm awaiting people picking through my FS threads to see what i've done wrong :D

I know which one you mean thought all details should be in OP including price and sizes and not do it as you go along posting pics

We've had this conversation before and ASB said to report any threads with "interested pending pics" and those comments would be removed.

Not sure if thats working though! Ive got to admit it drives me crackers too!

I reported one last night and its still there. Sorry to bump this but I thought with all the extra helpers, new mods etc then things would tighten up in the FS section but this is still going on.

I have reported a few of these "interested pending pics" and none of them have been removed. One last night posted it..............the OP then got offers to buy items from other posters but she waited an hour to see if this "interested pending pics" poster was going to buy item but they never came back into thread for 3 hours - then just posted "damn" into the thread.

So...............what is supposed to happen re this? Surely they should be infracted and their post removed and that would discourage them from doing it again. Also I have saw posters with high feedback doing it themselves - they should know better!!!

Posts which don't advance the trade negotiations should generally be treated as spoilers.

I'll have a look back bossyboots.

I've had a look back at the report mentioned. Posting "interested, pending pics" shouldn't be seen as a member having any priority within the thread.

For the vast majority, that I have observed, it appears nothing more than a member jockeying for position within the thread. It's more frustrating to see that happen when it's posted within mins of the thread being created.

There are several ways of dealing with this, however as pics aren't mandatory, it's something we have to factor into our decision process.

Thee request for pics within 1 min of the thread being created, was nothing more than a spoil and would normally have been removed. The timing of the report (1 hr later) meant that removing the post would have been of limited value, considering that the trade had gained momentum by then, and indeed some posts referenced the member.

That said, we'd like to think that we'd comment in the thread highlighting to the OP that the 'interested' member has no priority and infact has made no offer. As you know, some of our longer standing members may respond before it's reached the moderators group, as you have done so in this instance. We probably wouldn't need to repeat such a comment unless there was some sort of debate going on.

A couple of additional points.

1) If a member is simply posting "interested", then such posts will be removed (notification may be given to the member).
2) If it's "interested, pending pics", we'll treat that as a request for pics. That member has made no offer and no such priority order exists for buyers anyhow.
3) If there are multiple such requests we'll lock the thread until pics are provided. If the OP merely puts up holding responses then we'll take such comments into account when determining the number of bumps used to date.
