Your welcome guys!

It still amazes me how much these guys bitch when I cite them in the last fews days for having no pictures. Guys keep reporting the FS threads with no pics and I will cite them and delete them - until they comply.

It's not the place of the moderator to make up rules for a section or the site. That's an admin function. Have the admin post rules, until then you're out of bounds. If the reports bother you, start suspending accounts for misusing the report function - as that is not its purpose either.

Stop whining. Practically every car forum in existence has this rule, and then some.

Thanks Dack.

That is the way I have been enforcing it. Its pretty much common sense to have a real pic of the item you are trying to sell. There are only a few FS threads that I have let slide... bc the parts they are selling are kind of hard to photograph like DP's or mid pipes. As long as I see they are trying with a real photo... I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. But any ad with no photos will incur an infraction and get deleted be me.

Some members wanted the forum members user name written on something IN the photos posted in the FS thread. I think that's a little too much.

I just hope forum members keep posting real pictures and keep things legit here. It is all up to YOU guys to report the offenders. Just send me a PM or report the posting via the red flag under the user's name.

Seems like 50%+ of the ads here are missing photos. I've reported a few, but some more proactive enforcement both by mods and community members would be really nice for everyone. Zero excuse to not have photos of your stuff in 2016.

If you have trouble uploading your photos using the forum's internal hosting, which has some annoying dimension and file size restrictions, try one of these:

1) an OS-based resizing tool, such as https://imageresizer.codeplex.com/ for Windows.
2) A cloud-based resizing tool, such as http://resizeimage.net/ . Scaling your photo down by 50% should do the trick.
3) imgur.com as an alternative hosting site

You'll have better luck selling your stuff, and buyers won't have to say, "Hey lazy bones, can I actually see what you're selling?"

Finally, if you see an ad without photos, report it. The icon is just to the left of the appreciate button, and your reason can simply be "no photos."

All you guys need to do is send me a PM or click the yellow flag to report that posting/thread. I'll do my best to take care of it.
