The "make primaray" photo option doesn't work for me.
Also, when I update the price (e.g. drop it) it doesn't update in my sig...

Bueller?

All the above bugs are being looked into.

 

On the ICs, My thinking is that if you are able to get the items at the price you list in the listing, and are willing to sell them at the price, then you should be able to post an IC as a tentative for sale ad. If it is one of those BS feeler type "hmm, if someone offered me $10k I would part with this" type of ICs, just put up a BS FS ad at your ridiculous price, but don't be tentative about it. Before we make a ruling, any other thoughts?

It should also be noted that you can now interrupt the clock when you subset to get "Wanted", "For Sale", etc... and the results will be for all the checked (or rather, all of the unchecked will be removed) boxes. It wasn't obvious to me either, but this fix has been in place for a couple of weeks now shog[1].gif

So basically just list it as a FS ad, but state in the text its not definitively for sale. Pretty much no difference than an item-in-hand listing. Am I understanding that right?

No. Just list the ad at your ridiculous asking price, and if anybody PM's you about it, you've got your "interest".

Why don't you just list it for sale normally but put "IC:" in the front of the title line?

One consequence of the new setup is B & S threads like this one

http://www.styleforum.net/t/262538/steal-it-2-9k-black-isaia-aquaspider-3-2-roll-killer-suit-would-fit-a-42r-awesome-cut-drape-fit-every-man-needs-one-so-own-the-best/0_100

Sorry to pick on you, MiamiRedskin. The suit you're selling is amazing.

In this thread, the seller has used the site's picture posting system to put up a bunch of pics, which appear in thumbnails at the top of the post. In order to view the pics, you click on the first one and it appears in a pop-up window; you can then position your mouse over the 'Next>' button and click it to get to the next pic. Sometimes the next one pops up right away, but often, there's a pause while it loads. However, that's not the worst problem. In addition, all the pics do not flow from the first one. In the thread I linked to, the first seven pics are viewable in this manner, by clicking the 'Next>' button. After 7 pics, it says you're at the end and can go the previous pic only. To get to the next series of pics, you have to go back up to the thumbnails, figure out where you left off, and click another pic to get a new set.

This sucks. It's way better to have the pics in the body of the post itself. I can then click and hold the vertical scroll button and just whip through the pics and view whatever I want when I want.

I stopped looking at this thread because I didn't feel like sitting there and clicking through all those pics.

Sellers - ditch this technique. Put the pics in the body of the thread like we used to have it. It's way better.

Not everyone is tech savvy enough to know what code to post there. Without the image tag button its hard for people without that knowledge to grasp.

Ah, right. I didn't think of that. But then how did sellers post pics in the old forums? Everyone had to use some sort of hosting service and do it manually, right? Maybe the mods had a lot of complaints from prospective sellers who said they didn't know how to post links from Photobucket etc?

They didn't have complaints about having to do it yourself photo hosting. Sellers were motivated or went elsewhere. not that hard, anyway.

They did have complaints about great threads with great images, and having the images disappear. I think getting local hosting was an attempt to make that happen less often.

You just copied the direct image link info from Photobucket/etc. and pasted it into the popup box. People might not know that you can just paste the IMG code from their hosting site into the body of the thread and it'll function the same way.

You can still do this. I would advocate hosting the images locally, and also posting them as before. It's not like it costs anything more, and using the image loader is about as simple as we could make it. This way, buyers get a preview, and can also see the pics in the body.
