Hey guys, if you didn't see my post in the firearms section then go check that out. I made a couple simple templates for people to copy and paste so that we can help alleviate ads without proper information as well as redundant questions being asked. Let me know if I missed anything that you would like added.

OPTICS FOR SALE TEMPLATE:

Manufacturer:

Model Number:

Tube Diameter:

Parallax Adjustment (front, rear, side, top [Kahles]):

Magnification Range & Objective Diameter:

Generation (if applicable):

Mil or MOA Turrets:

First or Second Focal Plane:

Reticle:

Illumination (Y/N):

Box/Papers/etc Included?:

Are rings included? If yes, height/cant/etc:

Condition/Blemishes/Ring Marks/Glass Condition:

PRICE:



Again, try to get some good pictures in good light for people.

No one is saying this is all you can use since everyone has their own way of posting stuff, but this is designed for people who want a quick copy and paste template that they can fill out.

Not really sure why someone wouldn't want to use it though since all of this info should be in their ad anyways.

Just an idea, maybe put price up towards the top? When I am scrolling through, I get a preview of the post when I hover over the post title. If price is up closer to the top, instead of the bottom, that will come up in the preview. I realize that may not help the seller get views, but it will definitely save a buyer time seeing if something is in his budget or not.

Yea I noticed that as of last week. Didn’t know if it was accidental or intentional. Hopefully getting fixed soon.

I understand the desire for people to not miss information when selling, but I find the template obnoxious. Too much going on in with all the text. It’s much harder to quickly scan an ad and see if it is something I would be interested in.

Then there are the lines that don’t even pertain to some items and are left blank but still take your attention away from the important stuff. Maybe if people answered all questions that were relevant and the deleted all the extra wordage it would be easier on the eyes.
