I think what is needed is a way to make it impossible to post an ad without filling in a set of fields, one for your location, one for type of animal and one for price. Again, pics are nice but you really don't have a complete ad without those three pieces of info so they should be required before you're able to post.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...

very good point Tim......... I was rooked buy that detail myself once i asked a guy for a price on a few snakes which he promptly gave me so i sold off a breeding project to my friend as it was more money than i had.

hehe If people put down "email for pictures" I think everyone thats annoied by this should email them for pics interested or not. Maybe If they start getting an email flood they will clue in. On 2 ocasions I have asked for pics to be emailed...not because I was interested but I just because I want to see what they looked like.

Also If you are selling babies be sure to include pictures of the adults.

Good post guys!
I agree with it. My pet peeves are,
-no location given
-no price
-no pics
You'll notice too that it's always the same people too that do all these things.

Yep, Trev is right. And not only is it always the same people, its always the same ad up for sale because the animals don't sell. Gee...wonder why? LOL!

well you have to see that, a lot of people comes on these fourms just for to sell there animals, probly most of them dont even know how to post a picture, jsut a thought, but i agree that they should add the location that is a biggy, sometimes i can guess where there from, at the top of the post but other then that no. So thats a big problem

Another pet peeve of mine is when someones first post is a for sale add. I don't know but I just think it is in bad taste to joing a site with free classifieds just to take advantage of it. I feel like those classifieds are for our community and if you want to take advantage of them at least say hello first.
Am I alone on this?

Definetly not! Im with you Trev. Thats pretty poor when people do that.

I like Derrick's Idea! It would definetly amuse us and get the people to post a picture.


BTW: I know I have done some of these things on occasion(stupid me! LOL) but I totally hate it with other people so I realize that I shouldn't do that!

it takes seconds to upload pics to the internet, there's no reason that a person can't put links to pics of their animals that they uploaded

besides, any breeder with a website, has to have webspace to upload the event that someone doesn't have that, they can always upload here or to a free pic server

People also need to start treating purchases and sales as if they were business deals.

Request a signed receipt when providing any form of payment. Scanners and fax machines are not hard to come by. If the person will not provide a signed record of the transaction *do not deal with them*.
