Talking FFS if your selling something have the decency to put a price on it

This bugs the hell out of me.
What's all this pm me for a price crap?? Why ??? Just stick the friggin price up to start with.

Is there a rule that someone or a trader selling a item should advertise it with A picture so we can see what's being offered for sale and A price. It's really not that hard to do.

Rant over

If there's no price, report the post.

It's not as annoying as users and particularly traders who can't even be bothered to advertise on this forum. "Oooo, we have this awesome thing for sale. Here's a link to another forum."

Private individuals have to post a price, Traders do not, although you'll find those that want your business, will.

I had to chuckle the other day when the AMS UK guy said we are now selling in the UK and have amazing pricing. I email as I would love one of their intercoolers and effectivly said it would be a million quid but would knock off £100 for me....

What a waste of my time...!

Totally agree, there is nothing worse than seeing something you really like, emailing the person to ask about it and finding out its above your budget for that particular item! Why not just post a price and save me the embarrassment and save yourself having people emailing to ask the price!

I can live with not seeing prices but no pictures is a bit of a piss take really. I wouldn't even entertain buying off someone who is too lazy to take a snap shot with their phone and post it on here. If only they put a bit more effort in they could increase their sales but it doesn't seem to register. Do people really trip over themselves to buy car parts without seeing them first?

How about the other side of this argument.

Listing things, having people ask for 50 pictures, then low ball you to the point where its a bloody joke.

One up from there, you get typical low ball offers, you reject them, then they come back and ask for pictures and get upset you dont want to waste your time, when you already know they are not going to pay you lol!

maybe have a mod approve the thread. On other forums they use templates , pictures and price before it's approved.
