Require Vehicle For Sale Ads To Have Pics?

I am for making it a rule that any for sale thread for a bike or vehicle must have pictures.

Exactly! Is there anyone who would actually buy any vehicle without seeing it first? Why tell a huge crowd of potential buyers that every person that wants to see it needs to drive to look at it. Stop wasting my time, stop wasting your time, and everyone else's time. If you want to sell a vehicle, you need to post up pics.

i can see the point in this. but, anyone buying the vehicle should go see it in person before the purchase anyways. granted that seeing pics up front might help with an initail choice of even going to see the vehicle. i would vote no.... sorry

why should someone have to waste their time and gas to drive to see a car blindly when nearly everyone has at least 1 form of digital camera these days, be it on their phone or a actual camera or whatever. there really isn't any excuse.

true, but if there is no pic and you are unsure then dont go see it. and the seller should know its gonna be hard as heck to sell with no pics also. i think the way things are sold now is pretty decent. not that i would try and sell with no pics but im just looking out for the people that dont have digital cameras, which there might be some out there. Also in cases where someone is selling a large amount of items in the same thread. ive seen some posts of 50 or more items. i wouldnt expect a pic of every one of them. im just saying this for the sake of argument. requiring pics can only help the FS section.

Why do you insist of making more rules? Haven't got enough rules to worry about. Just leave people alone. If someone wants to sell something, pics help if not, tough selling for the seller. If the purchaser wants pics, they should ask for it. If you go buy a bike without asking for pics, it's your fault. It's like eximport kinda sell. If you don't do your homework, it's your fault. Don't make anymore rules to make it easy for you and hard for someone else.
