    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. :rolleyes:

    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 . :mad:
    And yes , NO picture sucks but the one that really gets to me is when the seller says , Email me for PICTURES ! WTF ! :confused:

    For sale parts with no pics are like barn finds. Without pics they don't exist.

    Uh anyone wanna buy a Ford cammer? Zero miles, name your own price under a grand. Free shipping to the lower 48. :rolleyes:

    Good gawd now there is another picture out there. One of these days one of those govt agencies with just letters is going to see, next the black helimocopters and shazaaam no more beaner to kick around. :D:D

    It seems that there is a lot of that lately, when I scroll down and don't see a picture I automatically move on, I don't want to wait until the seller gets back to me with an email. It would save the seller a lot of time if they just posted the pictures right up front.
