    Yes price and location to deal.

    A kind of form to fill in when submitting online, stating the condition, years, warranty? And even pics, location etc, so that all details will be down on the thread, interested please use PM to deal etc, so that the threads will not be full of OT post.

    we appreciate your suggest. However, we too have to take in consideration members who do not own / have a camera with them.

    We have been in planning to improve the buy and sell section and will hopefully improve and reduce redundant posting in the threads

    PS. kindly refrain from using SMS lingo in AQ, but since this is your first few posting and it is christmas day, I will make it an exception

    AQ is an aquatic based forum and it is not essential it own a camera. So long as there are people will cannot afford them, we have to take that under consideration before implementing anything in the forum, perhaps it is a good option to have but not a must, IMHO.

    It may start out as a must to have a photo of the items you sell, then you have to consider what about fishes? have you tried taking photos of your fishes? not considering the super fast species. Then next, members will suggest having sharper picture because a certain photo is too blur, then what is next?

    A rule like that will limit the people who want to post.

    Actually, I find it's not that people don't have a camera in their phone. Some people do not know how to transfer the photo to their phone. PCs usually do not come with bluetooth nor infrared. The cheaper simpler phones do not come with data cable.

    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    Dear all, I think these things are very subjective. For examples, some people here are as young as like secondary 2 which they may not have any camera or have any knowledge all these uploading stuff. Second, uploading photo. Some pictures taken were so blur until a "B" grade CRS looks like a SS grade. Third, some just asking the prices just for fun or for knowledge and it's still better that they PM, than to give your contact directly on the posting.
    I believe if the seller wants a good and fast deal, i'm sure they will know what to do.

    This one spot on, the seller should do more to sell faster.

    I think it will be good if most/everyone try to practice a good "standard" posting for seller.
    if you have visited APC - For Sale or Trade Section, The way the post is very neat and the header is very direct in telling what they want to sell. Having picture/photo of your product for sale is an added advantage, not a must.

    We should not impose any rule in posting but should have some guideline for all to follow and hopefully it will benefit all hobbist.

    Just my 2cents though.
    Best Regards, TS
