Default Pictures please !!!!

I`ve been noticing that people on the H.A.M.B don`t like to post pictures with thier for sale posts. Please post pics with your for sale posts I`m seeing tons of great parts I`d be interested in buying, but no pics !!! It makes no sense to post a for sale thread with no pics. That`s like buying a car without driving it you just don`t do it.

Really? I just scrolled to a random page (page 4) in the items for sale section and 34 of the 35 ads had pictures. One of the the 34 said that he'd E-mail the pics, but the rest had them right there on the ad.

pictures with your for sale stuff please please please !!!! It`s so easy to add pictures to your posts. So many great parts to buy but without pictures why even bother opening the post ? It`s common sense Pictures = Sales

Wait till you come across a ad for a $30K+ car without pics and a ton of bumps! I don't get it, I can't imagine why someone would want to buy from a person that won't post pics.

Heck I've helped plenty of other guys post pics!!!

I agree 101%

I quit asking for pics - there's just too many items for sale without them.

I only have an IPad and I cannot upload photos from it to the Hamb. Believe me, I asked my resident nine year old computer genius and he said no way....can't run adobe flash either. But I have sold plenty of stuff, if someone shoots me their email I can send a picture via cell phone that is pretty darn good. I really don't use computers at all, don't have a need for something that sits on a desk and that I only need very rarely. Priorities I guess.

Personally I hate people that post pictures with a damn cell phone ! Most of the time it's blurry and really sucks .
And yes , NO picture sucks but the one that really gets to me is when the seller says , Email me for PICTURES ! WTF !
