and others have said that they agree that a new rule needs to be made.



Oh lawd. :-(

Hope you get my drift,



No, not really.

[COLOR="Blue"]like you said, sellers can sell to whom they like, so i dont think the example rule is needed. have you got any specifics threads in mind though so we can have a look at what you mean?

imo sayin something like "interested in XXXXX" basically means you want it if you like what you see in the pic so really they should get it first (unless the seller doesnt want to sell to them) its pretty obvious they want it otherwise they wouldnt say there interested.[/COLOR]

Correct, if it's not clear, I find it difficult to understand.

I don't think the FS/FT forum needs yet another rule. I have only read the 1st link, and it contains make up, so couldn't be bothered to read it to be honest.
From what I can see, it was confusing as the OP is new, and selling a lot of items.

With lots of offers coming in, it gets overwhelming. I get confused, and I have perfect feedback.

I hate no one. It's the internetz.

4lyons.... i'm with you on this i have to say.

As list now has to be in opening post, the list goes up then people load their pics on and sometimes even if you look at a thread 2 mins after it has started it already has .... i'll take this, that or the other pending pics... then sometimes there may be a list of 6 or more things and they see pics and they only actually buy one etc. Others see the i'll take this that and other and think its sold etc.. I admit it does get confusing. I may of even said it myself but as time goes on we are definitely getting more and i can see why people are getting confused.

Either that or someone goes on and says interested in this, that and the other.. you load pics and they don't reply back on thread again so op is then stuck sometimes saying just waiting to hear back from...

Not so sure theyd do a rule, there are plenty already, but it's definitely something thats happening more often.

Very well put, I am just useless at explaining :oops:
That was my jist, yours sounded much better :-D

Rep for that

no probs... xx

i think what you seem to be hinting towards is either the ability to contain photos in the first post the original one, or maybe that you can do the first post, then add photos etc and then have an extra button that 'opens' the thread to the public so that you dont get interference whilst trying to upload photos etc.

This is why when i usually do my big sales what i do it get everything ready in a document and just copy and paste...although ive had people still manage to get in quicker then i can!

yes they should, but it wouldnt stop people posting will take pending pics, etc,etc new members rarely get their threads updated quickly, most dont even know how to post a pic, and then theres the new members who have to sometimes wait an hour for their pics to appear because of awaiting mod approval

yes but if the wait for pics they may miss out on that £2 lipstick, to me they show no respect for the op, other members or the boards, but hey ho im the biggest moaner on there so now leave it to others ;-)

i agree with those that say that its annoying when ppl post i'll accept pending pics x y and z.
I think we just need a rule you only express an intention to buy if you want it. ( no pending pics carp)

i also see members now offering things with no price, like i have this for sale you interested, then the op saying yes how much, then the member saying price, thats 3 bumps, when all that was needed was i have this at this price, and a response from the op, i think pics should be a deffo, no pic then dont post, that goes for the person opening a selling thread and those posting they have this for sale within a thread

Yea annoys hell out of me that someone makes a thread and then say i post pics some time today/tomorrow. Should be a 30 mins time limit or something from opening thread to posting pics or thread is lock and 7 day rule comes in

if they get spotted they are locked up, after every one lese thread has been bumped off the 1st page, but rules like this could stop so much on the boards, yet there more interested on adding stupid silly little rules that help no one, including themselves

If a member lists when not properly prepared, they will either sell to a numpty that doesn't know what they're buying, or their thread will self destruct because it is too confusing. They both get what they deserve.

Members that list correctly lose out on nothing, as there is always another deal around the corner.

If I choose to post a pic the next day, then that's my choice. If someone asks for a pic before I said I would put it up, their post should be removed. If I miss the time when I said I would put it up, then someone asking for one would use one of my bumps.

It's not that hard to understand.

so if someone doesnt post pics, and doesnt put pics to follow, and we then have 12 numpties asking for them, these should remain because it was your choice to not post them, hardly fair on others, or should they be removed for the reasons of ?? Surely anything that makes things easier and less work for the team should be considered, although members dont run this site members they do actually make it and i think anything that members think could be good should be listened to, and if not good ideas then at least give reasons for them not being implemented to make the site and boards better, rather than, because we dont think it necessary

now what actually happens is, someone doesnt post pics, lots ask for them, mods lock till they can be provided, so where is the sense in that, work for members to report, work for mods to lock, and finally the same work it would have took for them to be posted in the 1st place for the said member, oh and not forgetting the free bump for the lock, and then the free bump for the unlocking, yeah can now see why members dont bother, fair few free bumps there

i forgot the last bit, then they all come back on to post after seeing pics they wish to no longer buy, so another few bumps, yep totally fair on all members

Another example: hotukdeals.com/ite…-ch

Lots of bumps, for no reason. No-one has seen pictures, no price has been stated, bumps it up and they may not even like after seeing pictures! Not getting at the people, but I think there should be a restriction on things like this.
