Default No/minimal text picture auctions vs All text no pictures auctions

What do you guys think of auctions that have their description in pictures rather than text? Do they stand a greater risk of being flagged for abuse/ account suspention?

Nope but if they can't go by your description then they'll target your title.

Surely with an image description you could just host the image yourself, change it after the sale, and send the customer a different item?

I wouldn't risk to put photos without any text.

Proves you never read a single thing.

Did you even understand the thread has been around longer than you even belonged to the forum

You two make me ROFL!

FYI to anyone reading, having a listing with images hosted on your own server flags the listing automatically, and I have had mine removed and a warning issued. Whether listing gets removed or not may depend on what the image is, if its descriptive or just a photo of the item. This is probably because as one guy clearly stated earlier in this post (back in 2008) people must have been sending a different item out and just swapping the image over after sale.

How do you list photos and text at the same time?

I don't see it in the ste/alth guide. Is it only talked about in the SUPER ste/alth guide?

Oh, will it also help my post count?
