Here are a few things that make me cringe in FSOT:

1) No pictures...why?! Also, pictures of the outside of the diapers but not the insides.

2) When someone calls out another mama for her prices in her thread...why can't they just send a PM or report it to DS if it's way out of orbit?

3) When a buyer asks "Would you take X amount?" within my thread. Offers are appreciated, but only in PM.

What are some of YOUR pet peeves either as a seller or as a buyer in FSOT?

When people don't change the name of the thread when something sells. For example the title will be: Bumgenius, fuzzibunz, and more and when you click the thread all the bumgenius are sold

Re: FSOT Pet Peeves

People who don't respond to PM's. I always PM, but sometimes have to send 2-3 PM's, never hear anything, then see something marked as sold 3 days later.

Saying you are ISO something, then not responding to PM's. Or responding in the thread you have something someone is ISO, then not responding to PM's.

Asking for additional pictures, then disappearing. At least tell me your not interested.

I didn't think you could change the title unless you have enough posts or some other criteria. I remember trying to long ago and couldn't.

If you click edit on your post, then click advanced, you can edit your title

My pet peeves- sizes not being listed in the title. I also appreciate it when mamas list if they have boy/girl/neutral colors available. Saves a lot of time when I'm browsing. Detailed descriptions are nice too.

I hate when sizes are not listed at all! I've had to ask a few times "what size"?
I know we are all super busy & can be forgetful, but the more details, the quicker the sale.

This is hard sometimes if you use your phone to list. Mine doesnt allow for advanced editing options. I also dont have access to a pc all the time.

Re: FSOT Pet Peeves

When people pm with interest and then drop off the face of the earth. At least PM me back and say "nevermind" so I can move on to the next interested party. I saw someone who posted that they would be moving on to the next person if no response in 24hrs. I like that idea.
