2a. All For Sale and For Trade threads must include pictures of what you are selling or trading at the time you open the thread. If no pictures are included of what you are selling or trading then the thread will not be validated by a Staff member.

These pictures help prove that the thing you are selling or trading is indeed in your possession.
2b. All Want to Buy threads must include a descent description of what you are looking for.
