    Default Couple of Forum observations

    I've been away for a while. First thing I noticed when I came back is the sheer amount of stickies on the board. General has 11 stickies, and that seems like a lot. My screen is 27" but between the headers and the stickies I'm not seeing any posts without scrolling. This isn't a gripe as much as an observation. I just scroll down and that's fine but I keep noticing it. Wondering what others think if they even notice.

    Second is an oldie but goody. PEOPLE STILL AREN'T POSTING PICTURES ON THEIR FOR SALE ADS?!?!?! WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL? Seriously. There isn't a single person living in a house that uses the internet that can't put hands on some sort of digital camera. Hell even flip phones have cameras. I just don't get it. Why haven't we punished these people out of existence yet? I won't look at any ads that don't have a picture period. Not even a gun I actually want at a crazy good price. Just won't do it.

    Pretty light topics, but its either that or talk politics right?

    I come here to talk guns, or at least 2A-specific politics... But as long as I've popped in, tend to jump into other 'lounge' stuff too. YMMV.

    As to OP, I completely agree: It's just dumbass to post a listing without picture. I don't even consider picture-less posts just on the basis of "if you can't be bothered/can't figure it out, I probably won't be happy transacting with you anyway"...

    ^^^ this. If I can't see it, I don't want it. It's no different here than Craigslist, though - lots of ads with no pics.

    Not that pics always help. This guy's monitor has been for sale for a couple of months, grime, cigarette butts, jock itch, and all.

    re, pics. I agree! No excuse for not sending pics. That's what I tell all them bot chicks. They don't send, I'm gone!

    Suggestion noted, I'll get right on that.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Since you've been gone for so long, you owe us all some BBQ
    There's no such thing as a free lunch.
