Don't even look at ones without pictures

Hey guys, just a thought,
I was browsing the Airplanes FS/W section and if the person is really trying to sell it, they'd post pictures of what it is. I don't even bother to look at it if it doesn't have pictures. (Just a ...AHEM...hint to you guys who don't post pictures and wonder why it's not selling fast)
What are your thoughts?

Lots of pictures please,if your camera is broke then don't list until you find a loaner.
Sometimes I list items at work then state that I will add pics later,I guess it's better than no pics at all.

Yes thats understandable, but just being too lazy to even post pics?! Unacceptable.

Some have pictures, but don't show up on the side unless they are an attachment.

if you store images online off site and dont upload from your computer each time theres a link in your edit window (formatting section) that allows you to enter the url to the image however it might be very large if you dont know how to resize it

Sometimes I do this when I'm out and about and have pics on my phone. I can't upload em onto RCG, but email works just fine.

No, that's the sucky part. It'll only show up when someone opens the specific ad.

I think I read somewhere you are about 12 years old? Too young to spend time ranting on the net. These threads have a way of inducing "mob mentality" and witch hunts. Go fly your planes and have fun. Take my advice, even though you've heard it many times- you are only young once...

Really? I found that the ones with the pictures from photobucket were in the preview. Maybe I am incorrect.


LOL, yes, I'm 13 now.
I have been bashed around here a few times, I must admit. But I don't have a club that I can go to, and I don't know anyone else where I can get my questions answered.
This place is perfect for me.
Alex
