What is your opinion.
If the option is available yes, I only use my phone and is way easier just to leave my number and send pics via email or by text. As long as there is an option for pictures, some way I do not see a problem as long as it is announced in the ad.

Android phone is the easiest way to post pics. My question would be if you are looking at something for sale on a website or eBay do you email and ask them to text or email pics ? If no then why here ? Even Craigs list ads have pictures.

At this point, in 2017, what person really doesn't have a photobucket, flickr, or private hosting service for photos? Even if you didn't, you could tinypic one photo or 10, and share them here.

Or you can upload them from your HDD, as a test, a TC4 I recently sold....

you can attach the pictures straight from your phone to the site if you are using your phone to post on rctech.

I know it's a pain to alway be answing the same question over and over. for everyone that is patient I appreciate it and, u guys really read around and use the advance search in the botton when using your phone and if the full site button does not work on the first push try it again it does take me a few time most the times...
Pic from New s7 ... s6 fall from 20 feet otter box didn't save it but the over night shipping was sweet

Then make posting pics easier.. not everyone is the most computer literate, and can resize or host pics.
The way i look at it is. If someone is interested enough to pm, then they will ask for pics.

It really isn't hard.
1 create new thread
2 type up ad
3 click on the paperclip and upload pics

What I can'tunderstand is why guys argue that its hard and want to text or email pics to each and every person that is interested in the item. That has to be more work than learning to post pictures through tech or sighning up for photobucket or some other picture host. Android phone or tablet is the simplest and quickest way I've found to do it.

If you take smaller pictures or turn down the mega pixel setting for your camera it usually fixes it. My samsung s5 had to be turned down to 8mp. Worked great after that.

Arguing, lol. Your entilted to your opinion, as am I. But to sit there, and say no pics, no add, maybe you want to post pics for everyone. So then there are no more issues.

Everyone is entitled. And I have posted pics for people before. To explain some. If there is no recourse for deals done through text between members ,which usually starts by sending pictures,then wouldn't it be safer for buyer/seller if pics were in the ad ? I don't believe I have the be all end all answer but am just trying to make our rctech a safer place for buyers.

Posting or not posting pics with adds will do nothing to make the site safer. There will always be someone looking to take advantage.
