IT'S NOT DIFFICULT - follow the simple template, include as much info as possible. NO TRADERS. NO PRICE? thread will be deleted without checking. Using English and Paragraphs always a winner too.

We can't get involved in disputes between sellers and buyers but just make sure that, in all cases, you are being clear and upfront with the other party. Eg if a price is agreed, stick to it.

Hi
How do I add images to a Sale posting? I'm having issues in getting good quality pics up on the site.
Cheers, Neil

Neil, you might find this thread useful ...

http://sciroccoregisterforum.co.uk/carf ... ?f=28&t=67

I did create a thread for folks that use Flickr, which I was also going to flag up, but it seems to have been deleted! :dash:

I can only assume some over zealous Mod trying having a spring clean failed to appreciate not everyone uses Photo Bucket ... well done that man! :blush:

Anyway, if it is Flickr let me know and I'll post up some tips.

:beers:

It's not us being precious - a clearly written advert helps you sell a car quicker, it's a free to use service and ALL users are expected to play the game.

Template now reflects recent road tax changes i.e you can't transfer the tax to new owner.

for the avoidance of any doubt - it's a free to use forum and we expect people to compile the adverts as per the template.

this makes it easier for potential buyers to ID if the car is what they're looking for via the brief summary details.

No template, no advert. It's signposted more than clearly enough in various parts of the forum.

Free to use forum, please follow one of the few rules we have on here.
Quick summary at top of advert better for potential purchaser than war and peace style paragraphs.
