Re: why are there no pictures?!

I think pictures are important. I am a visual person. I am also very uncool when it comes to diapers to I have no clue what color rabbit is, what a colorway looks like , what a 2.0 looks like, etc.

I want to see what it is. I want to see the flaws if any. It's not enough to say "light staining" on prefolds. Yes it's a huge amount of prefolds but at least show a picture of the staining on the worse one. Pet peeve... "it will probably sun out"... if it *might* sun out. Then sun the suckers so they don't have stains. We all (or most of us that are already CDing) know things *might* sun out. Why even say that?

If I don't see a picture, I'm not going to pm and ask. I don't really *need* anything but I might be tempted to buy something as a want. I can't be tempted at all if there are no photos. I have flickr. It's free and like photobucket. You can post the photos directly to the the thread without attachment requirements coming into play.

(That said ....I still want a rainbow nior good mama... I'd ask for photos for that. Only cuz I really want it! I have some rainbow noir fabric and I might just make my own. And I'd ask for pics of Fish in Bags fabric. I insanely want some but I can never justify the prices that it sells for. I'd love to trade for it.)

I agree. I check my threads daily, its not too difficult to do that. I make it a point to go to the statistics screen then check on threads that way before bumping them. I need to see a pic eventually though. I am not going to buy anything without seeing a picture of it. I don't like asking for pics but I have done this before if it is something I really want.

Re: why are there no pictures?!

I think it's because it's impossible to post pictures! I mean, I keep trying but the uploader won't work. It just always says uploader failed. I've tried shrinking the pics too and they still won't post. It's obnoxious and makes it really hard for sellers to sell their items, because I agree - pics should be available to buyers! How in the world do people get the uploader to work???

Some of us have very little sun available except in the summer. I can tell you if I went to sun anything right now it would a) not get enough to matter and b) get rained on.

Someone sunned diapers in the rain. She said it worked really well. Maybe even better than with total sun as the diaper didn't dry out. When the diaper is dry it doesn't sun very well at all.

I skip posts without pics. Right now though I don't need anything at all so unless it has really good pics of a really cute fitted I won't bother looking.

I agree they should make it easier to post pics here directly I will not post my pics to any photo sharing site such as photo bucket.

I wonder if DS has tried integrating TapaTalk for this forum. I have few vBulletin forums I browse through and is very stable. Rarely have problems with them.

LOL - I loved b. This is happening right now to one of my diapers on the line. Also sunning in the PNW in the winter/spring takes FOREVER. Like a week to get a good amount of sun. The same reason that people in the PNW are also super vitamin D deficient.

But yes - I always put pictures in my posts.
