Default For sale templates

Ive seen on kcsr.org that in the vehicle for sale threads they have a template of necessary information when placing a car for sale. It includes very basic information people want to know when buying a car. And when people don't follow the template, the thread gets locked. Pretty simple. Any thoughts or ways to make it happen?

Default Re: For sale templates

I've been thinking about adopting some of kcsr's rules.
Vehicles for sale template was one of them....


For those of you that don't know here it is..
Please take the time to read these rules, PRIOR to posting in these sections.

1. Absolutely NO stolen goods /property. KCSR.org will cooperate fully with law enforcement on any investigations regarding alleged stolen goods / property.

2. Post your item(s) in the correct section(s).

3. Use an appropriate title for your thread(s).

4. You MUST use this template (all fields are required, unless stated):

Asking/Offering Price:
Email Address/Phone Number (optional):
Zip Code:
Pics:
Name:
Item Description:

For auto listings these are also required in addition to the fields above.

Year:
Make:
Model:
Mileage:
Title Status:
Color Exterior/Interior:
Transmission:
Drivetrain:

**Ads that do not follow the proper formatting will be locked / deleted.

Default Re: For sale templates

Would be super nice if it could be done with drop down style menus and all and would require the user to put in ALL required fields before posting. I know vbulletin probably doesn't have that feature (or if it does it aint cheap).....but would be nice to vet it organized that way.
This way I think mods wouldn't have as many sale threads to go through and lock up. I mean jeeezzz, how hard is it to post up info and pics about something you're desperately trying to get rid of? Lol.

Its as simple as making a thread sticky. Then when you want to sell something, you simply open the thread, copy, paste and fill in the blanks

it's just as i mentioned a long time ago:

If you have time to hit the "NEW THREAD" button, Type up info on your car and an offer......then you have just as much time to post the pics right at that moment. If you are doing it all from your phone......then you are not willing to take the time to sell your vehicle quickly. I ABSOLUTELY hate when people say......"I don't have time to post pics cause i'm on my phone"....then why in the hell did you even post it up in the first place????

If you take the time to post pictures and all the information needed.......people ask less questions and you can get to the point....which is money!!

Same crap happens on the FOR SALE items as well.........how does anyone expect to buy anything used without a picture or using a picture from the manufacturer directly??? Just seems NO ONE wants to take the time or are too lazy.

I agree, and rodney you know whats really sad. Is you can post pics with your phone, lol. I wrote half of my build thread on my phone and posted pics via my phone. People are just lazy, handicap, and think posting pics are too much of a hassle because they have to upload then copy/past links. I look at it like you do, if posting a pic is too hard for you to do, don't even bother with posting the car for sale. I've never understood how people expect to be able to sell a car well if they don't have a pic, shows a lack of care which in turn makes you look like a crappy car owner which then makes me believe the car is junk.
