Default Improved Cars and Saxos for Sale Rules

Personally I feel it should be a rule that when submitting a car for sale thread the seller should follow an arranged/template of a for sale thread that includes subheadings such as:

Make:
Model:
Year:
Tax expiry date:
MOT expiry date:
2 keys?
Service history:
Recent work:
Modifications:
Bad bits/condition:
Price:
Location:
Contact via:

Then have a rule that the seller needs to upload at least 4 exterior pictures clearly showing all 4 corners of the car, at least 2 interior pictures and at least 1 engine bay picture or have their thread deleted.

I don't know what some people's opinions are on this? There are quite a lot of half arsed for sale threads with no pictures that are a waste of time for people to even attempt to look at.

Totally agree, would make life much easier, and there is no reason a seller shouldn't be able to provide the above information very easily

It would also make much easier to read. When people write essays and avoid the key aspects it does my head in.

Devilsadvocate has made a decent template, but to make it a rule that you have to use the template AND to post the pictures I said above. Would improve the chance of the seller to actually sell their car faster too

Surely if the seller makes a crap advert, it's to their detriment? Nobody is forcing you to buy their car and it would be a lot of work for the mods just to make sure a for sale advert is up to scratch or delete. Think you're going OTT.

I always make OTT adverts to shift a car as it's what I'd want to see and because I want the best chance in shifting the car. No point in helping people shift their cars it's their prerogative.

I made a thread about this ages ago it's not likely to happen or be enforced.

My old VTS FS thread is stickied on ZSOC lol

What about setting the title in a format that gives the basics as well?

I.e. Make / Model / Year / Mileage / Price / Colour / Location.

(Shamelessly "borrowed" from CTRO)

You guys are of course welcome to propose a template (and I can add it to the stickies as a "suggested post layout" or something) but in reality, it's not going to be made a rule and enforced as such.

There's a lot of admin overhead already required of the mods, and checking someone's for sale post for errors isn't something we'd add to that.

Like I say, feel free to create a best endeavors template and we'll recommend it, but if people don't follow that, that's their problem if they lose a prospective buyer.
