    OK. I'll sit on the side of caution and not link to the ebay listing until it's a unanimous yes.

    However, I'd like to offer a suggestion. Maybe allow only links to ebay listings that are BUY IT NOW, or a non-auction style ebay listing. That way it's a straight sale, no auctioning/bidding and the seller is saying what he/she wants for it.

    The verdict is in!

    We will not be a host to the auction site. No eBay links.

    Most sites like this limit attachments in an attempt to limit the exposure to viruses. What are you trying to attach?

    Uploading photos from your computer is not allowed due to the risk of a virus. You can post photos here using two different ways. Probably the easiest is to upload a photo from your computer to a third party site like PhotoBucket and then link it to your post, or alternatively upload a photo into an album or photo gallery on this site, then link it to your post.

    Here is the detailed instructions from the FAQ section:

    1. First upload your photo into our Gallery, Photobucket or some other website that can store photgraphs.

    2. Copy the link (URL) provided below the photo by selecting the text with your mouse and copying (Ctl-C) or use the brower's Edit menu - copy command.

    3. Open your forum post and click the "Insert Image" icon which looks like a tiny yellow postcard.

    4. In the box that appears paste (Ctl-V or Edit menu - paste) the URL to the image, taking care not to insert http:// twice. Click ok and the image will appear in your post.

    Here are additional guidelines to using our Gallery.

    * The fly fishing forums gallery allows you to store up to 10Mb of photographs.

    * Once in the gallery you can use the link provided to also show the photos in your forum posts.

    * The allowable image types are: jpg, jpeg, png or gif

    * Uploaded photographs will be automatically reduced to 990 pixels wide if they are larger than this, otherwise they will remain the original size.

    * Typically a photograph designed for web viewing is normally 50Kb in size or less. The fly forums gallery allows you to upload file sizes up to 100kb which means you may need to web-optimize your photographs before you upload.

    To optimize use Adobe Photoshop or other photo editing software, or an online service like: Online Image Optimizer: Optimize your GIFS, JPGS, and PNGS online. or Web Resizer - Making Photos Faster - Optimize pictures for websites and email for bigger photographs.

    We find an image quality of ‘40’ as the best compromise between quality and loading speed.

    * To delete a photograph then Click Photo Options and choose the Edit Photo. Delete is one of the options in there.

    Hi seacraft,

    Archaic or not we are first and foremost a discussion forum not a sales platform. Active membership are always welcome to sell unwanted tackle here but we avoid sellers who wish only to find buyers then move on.

    Sorry about that,
