    Guys... it's not too hard to post pics in your listing.

    Yes, I understand it's not too hard for potential buyers to click on your Reverb ad, but someone who takes the time to post pics his Classified ad shows a little more attention to detail and it is appreciated by other forum members.

    I'm sure i'll probably get blasted for posting this. Leave comments below.

    I used to love sneakers. You couldn't sell a rare pair without photos that were tagged with your username - there was just too much funkery and forgery out there. By tagged, I mean a slip of paper in the image at an angle where it would be difficult to photoshop. I'd post photos with other photos in them.

    @Rocco Crocco , I won't blast you for posting this, because I agree 100%....I will blast you for posting it in the classifieds though. LOL. Should have went back stage with this.

    It was almost justifiable during the Photobucket days, but now that we have that massive UPLOAD A FILE button, it's just lazy.

    I'm acutally a little surprised it's allowed here -- linking offsite to sales pages. If I were the owner, I'd want to keep members active here, if only for the sake of ad revenue.

    I thought about putting this in the backstage, but i get the impression a lot of guys who post to the classifieds section don't frequent the backstage.

    If a seller isn't going to put in enough effort to post pictures and a brief description here, I won't be arsed with clicking their lame ass link..

    I hear ya. It is total bullshit when someone is too lazy to post up a few pictures and a price here. If they are that lazy on an ad, how lazy will they be when it comes to shipping, proper packing, and insurance?

    Posting a pic from my computer could *not* be easier.... so I agree: if someone's unwilling/unable to post pics I wouldn't trust them to accurately describe the item or pack/ship it.
