And posts without pics will be taken down as well. If you can afford a machine gun you can afford a digital camera and can use photobucket.com to host pics for free.

I feel fortunate to have gotten good service from everyone in the FA community. I've gotten nervous a few times with parts at 1.1k on the other side of the country, but everything worked out.

however with the current climate in class three pricing, and the fever pitch of sometime's t.g.sickness.
some feel "hey man time to make big buck's and the big rip-off" normally they all get found out in the end.
but it is a sorry state if anyone here has to be that victim.
have fun guy's be carefull. and for those with larceny in the heart,you already know who you are... it's only a matter of time!

I'm all for these kind of rules, I hate to see anyone get ripped. I especially like the pic rule. I don't understand why anyone would buy something sight unseen.
The vouch rule I think needs a bit of clarification. What constitutes an "outstanding member"? Does a "SPONSOR" qualify? A "Long Time Member"? RKI?

Obviously all the regulars "could" be considered outstanding members.. It is not a definate thing, just away to try and prevent someone from just signing up to post a rusted out barrell to rip someone off. If we make it that much harder for them to do, then just maybe they won't even bother to try in the first place.
ALSO! Please don't put me in the middle of trying to resolve a problem. I don't have the time. So here are some words to live by!
1. DO NOT BUY SIGHT UNSEEN
2. DO A LITTLE BACKGROUND CHECK ON THE SELLER.
3. ASK FOR PICTURES
4. IF IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE THEN IT IS!
5. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - Does NOT refer to Mikes up coming Thompson calendars!

Anyone who has "Sponsor" under his name should be allowed to sell something to other enthusiasts, otherwise the post is deleted. Saying that you need a voucher from someone really makes it hard to get into the hobby if you are new to this. How can you get a nod if you are just starting out and never had one to begin with?
Donating to this site says something... namely that you are not fly by night. I would think most scammers wouldn't want to risk paypal or sending a check with identifiable information to the owners of this site.
Just my .02... of course the mods can run this as they wish.

I'll vouch for you Mike, problem is who will vouch for me, vouching for you.
I've never sold anything! Bought quite a bit though.
Gave some good stuff away as well.

Lets you upload pictures for free, and they even generate the code you need to link to the picture. Just copy and paste the code into your post and like magic the picture appears.
for an example, this is generally how the code looks. which displays the picture below.
