    Why do I need to waste time to contact the seller just to see some pics of the condition of the racquet?
    Post some gaddam pics!

    Haven't been on here in like 10 years and see that nothing has changed lol.

    This is the 'References' section, just FYI.

    And if you haven't been on here in 10 years, does it really even matter? :)

    Someone moved it here guy.

    And yeah it matters. I'm trying to buy some racquets and I gotta jump through hoops just to get some pics? WTF

    Jump through hoops? You're whining about pictures - which you can request via email - and you log in once after ten years? I think it hardly matters. If you have an issue, just look elsewhere.

    Most sellers are more than happy to send you pics via email... not really an issue IMHO

    Just put a link to a hosting site in your for sale add. Easy.

    If a person is interested in a racket I have, I can facetime the person and he/she can look it over from top to bottom. I can also answer any questions.

    That's a good idea! Hard to fake facetime!

    The hosting site photobucket is no longer free and it’s always been a pain to post pictures. I use Tapatalk to post now but it’s still easier to just send via email.

    I’ll give you a scenario.

    I spend 5 minutes creating a For Sale post for each racquet. They then do not receive approval so I have to start all over. Posting pics is just one more pain in the butt.

    Just request them. You’re acting like you are put out by this. The seller is the one offering their time. You’re just shopping for a bargain.

    Reason is some don't know how to post them here which is why they would rather attach from their computer in email. It does make process slower especially if seller only checks email and not PMs and a buyer happens to send a PM.
