Little effort goes a long way. No pics threads usually ends up with questions like what model, what color, one with this or one without that.

C'mon, this isn't Gumtree or OLX.  :point:

There is an excellent, free program called FOTOR that will quickly fix pictures, whether they need cropping, lightening up or otherwise adjusted (vertical correction, etc) and then you can resize it to say 1080 x 720 before uploading to a photo sharing website

There are most probably others that are the equal
Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

I loathe these "feeler" kwasi for sale threads. It's either for sale or not! Ask your price, sell it, keep it, or drop your price.

Another gripe I have with some classifieds. PLEASE STATE WHAT YOU ARE SELLING in your subject line. Be it an amplifier, a turntable, a pot of flowers. Example: Marantz XYZ 123-ABC.... WTF! Is it an amplifier, a vacuum cleaner or a hive of bees?

Rant over , Mods please feel free to delete or move to the right section.

Magician working an ocean liner in a double act with a parrot. Parrot ruins the act every night.  "It's up his sleeve, it's in his pocket, it's  down his trouser leg". The ship sinks, magician and parrot alone in a lifeboat. Three days. Fourth day the parrot says "Alright, I give up. What have ya done with the ship?" @mods I give up, what have you  done with the classifieds?

 Awesome  :thumbs: . Sloppy subject headings are annoying . Eg, "Goodies", "cupboard clearout", "feeler" etc . Individual ads for each items would be better . Usually when various items are up for sale together , the thread gets too long. And it's difficult to keep track of  what items on that list is 'on hold' , sold or back on sale .
