Why are my diapers not selling? Please help!

I have had a post on the FSOT for I think two weeks now. I thought for sure these diapers would go quickly, and I'm really disappointed that they haven't. I have sold and traded a few of them through other sites, but I'm really surprised that I haven't gotten any good hits from DS. Can you check out my post and let me know if there is anything glaringly wrong? This is my first time selling on here so I'm afraid that maybe I did something that screams "NEWBIE!" LOL

Thanks!!

I would guess its two things. 1-some people on here have been burned by scammers and are very wary of buying from new people to the boards. 2- you have to click on links to get to see the pics instead of the photos being imbedded in the post. Some of us are lazy.

lol thanks! I couldn't find a way to post the links for the pics to be embedded. I have no problem using the BBC code from Flickr to have them show up on other sites, but for some reason it wouldn't work here. And I had more than the max # of pics for the post to attach them. I'd love any ideas on how to get the pics to work right!

Oh and I was hoping that since I do have feedback on here (for buying), that would help me out.

And FindingMercy, my ODD is Evelyn too!

Okay, I found a post that described using the Image Uploader on here, so now the pics are there! Hopefully that will help!

I wonder why it's so slow right now - I guess I won't take it personally. I appreciate any other tips anybody may have for increasing the likelihood of selling! I really want to find a good home for these dipes!

I honestly don't bother with anything that isn't ppd unless it is a crazy good deal. I am too lazy to try to figure out shipping! And it agree with pp, some people are weary of new sellers. If you have feedback anywhere else as a seller you might mention that in your post, I would be likely to buy from you if I can see that others have had a positive buying experience with you.
