Re: *LOOKIE* My FS0T checklist for ALL Buyers & Sellers *LOOKIE*

Maybe give us an idea of how big the photos should be. In inches and/or pixels. I have a fairly large screen so I rarely have to scroll. What sizes would everyone like to see?

Re: *LOOKIE* My FS0T checklist for ALL Buyers & Sellers *LOOKIE*

One thing I've seen once and absolutely adored, is that a seller put a short description (just type, size, price range) of each diaper right at the top of her post, so that it could be hovered over. After midnight my brother is allowed to torrent files, so my connection is slow as molasses, so waiting for it to register my click, waiting for it to load, waiting for pictures to load, just to find out its a L Mutt for $25 is so frustrating (out of size, price, and type range, and it happens often). I would just surf earlier in the day, but DH gets home at midnight so I don't get much baby-free time until then.

I really love this sticky, I couldn't agree more PMing a whole bunch of sellers to ask inner material gets me frustrated and gets their hopes up.
I know they don't *have* to tell us anything in the post, but it would reduce so much hassle and frustration on both ends.

I personally vote for this size which is Large 640 x 480 (on Photobucket)






This is Medium 320 x 240



And Small 160 X 120

I like the large too but that takes for ever to load if you don't have high speed internet. I think the medium is a must.

I'd like to add in a few

1) I love the descriptive titles! But PLEASE if an item has sold that you have listed in the title take it off. I cant tell you how many times I've clicked on a post because it says it has something that I want only to find that it's been sold.

2) If you are going to leave up pictures of sold items, and you have a post that has multiple things in it, please move all the sold items to the bottom! I hate having to scroll through and find whats sold and what isnt.

Those are the 2 things that I can think of off the top of my head

True! In that case, dipes really should be photographed close up and cropped to fill the space. Otherwise, it's too small for folks like me who only use a laptop to see any detail.

Ok thought of a few more lol.

Please don't type in all caps...it's hard to read. I don't see many posts like this but I do see a few.

Also please break up large posts into paragraphs, and use punctuation. That will make it easier to read as well!

Ok one more

Always, always get delivery confirmation if you are the seller. It's not that much more if you take it into the PO and it's free if you ship VIA PayPal. That little bit can not only protect you as the seller but also make it possible for the buyer to "track" their items and know when they will get them, thus taking some of the worry away from the buyer.

I've got another one-- When paying in PP, include your DS username and what you are paying for. I went on a selling binge once and then had to go back and match item price with DS user with PP addy... That can be a hassle. Also include your DS username in the package when you ship, so I don't have to go back though lots of stored PMs to find out who I need to leave FB for.
