    Learn to take pictures when selling a pin! The pictures below are not acceptable! Why some of you take your pictures in the dark is beyond me.

    And remember maybe the most important Teekee rule!:

    #12 2 years ago

    #14 2 years ago

    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    Could be someone's spouse telling the seller that he has to list a game for sale, but doesn't actually want to sell one...

    Nah, sellers jut get ahead of themselves
    how often do we see games listed with the comment that pictures are coming soon?

    #17 2 years ago

    Probably should be rule #1. In my other hobby, (Motorcycles), I see bad photos constantly. Motorcycles for sale should be photographed OUTSIDE on a sunny day. PERIOD. I get a huge kick out of it when sellers take photos of motorcycles inside a garage, where there is wonky lighting, and its difficult to even determine the color of the motorcycle. And yes, often these sellers add the statement "Serious Buyers Only".

    #18 2 years ago

    Taking shitty photos is one thing, posting or sending them as if they are actually helpful just boggles the mind. Love how you can still see the original post title in the url, it was better.

    Definitely top 5!

    #27 2 years ago

    Wow, a couple more ads in the Marketplace made me thinK of this... BUMP!

    #28 2 years ago

    It's....painful...to.....say.....but.....I....agree...with...teekee.....

    There really have been more Marketplace ads out there lately that make you wonder...is the person really just a bad photographer, or are they trying to hide something? C'mon people, if you really want to sell your game to the community, give good, honest pictures and descriptions!

    EVERYONE agrees with me. Some just have a tougher time admitting it than others... you did fine.

    I just think its more laziness than anything. Some of these pictures just REALLY SUCK!
