The photobucket thing is really cumbersome. I know it takes some time if you are listing a lot of diapers, but I agree with a PP about making it easy for the buyer. The burden of effort & work falls on the seller, in my opinion. If someone MUST do the photobucket thing, at the very least make sure they are in order of your listing.

I do somewhat see your point..but if it's a WAHM made tshirt..those are normally like $20-25 new..so I would think $10-12 for an EUC shirt (no rips or stains etc...) would be fair..right? Maybe I'm wrong.

Petpeeves? I can't stand the no pictures things. And I rarely click on a link that has little description in the title. I wanna know if it's boyish/GN/or girly and what size..AT least lol.

And make sure the pictures have titles. I can't count how many links to PB I've followed from FSOT threads, only to find a million random pictures... none of which have titles or descriptions, so I can't tell which picture matches which listing.

Re: FSOT Pet Peeves

I sell locally, but subbing in case I plan on selling on DS
I do browse FSOT occasionally, and if it's a great deal I do plan on buying, but to me alot of it is overpriced. I could never buy a used dipe for close to retail. When I sell mine, I like to take around 50% off, or somewhere around there, and it always gets sold quickly. I know I could make a few dollars, but I like being able to sell it and get rid of it. I guess that's why I won't spend much for used either.

This. This is infuriating. I've come across this so many times while searching for clothes for myself on here, and a bit while searching for diapers, as well.

Thank goodness you asked! I have a policy where I will not buy any item without pictures. Even if it says "NIP", I want to see what I am buying.

Anyone ever encountered the thread where the mama has something for sale...and then changes her mind about selling it? I hit that with the same woman on a couple different diapers she had (which were all only like 1.00 below retail anyway) we would pm back and forth and then shes like "Oh, we'll I think I might wait a while. I really like these." right when it came down to paying. The second time it happened I decided I will never even look at her listings now because it was so frustrating.
The photobucket things annoys me too
Listing a diaper but not saying what size
I honestly am more comfortable with a description than a picture. Photoshop does lovely things

Almost all typos provided care of my iPhones stupid auto correct

I just posted something on FSOT yesterday, and then decided to keep it . But it had only been listed a couple hours, and no one had PM'ed or posted interest, so I erased the info and changed the title to "delete."

As for the last one, I want descriptions and pictures. People can lie in descriptions easily, but it's pretty hard to make a crappy diaper look EUC, even with photoshop.
