Why delete photos of sold items? - 06-03-2019, 02:09 PM

Why do people delete photos of items they have sold?

Random stuff, whatever, but cues that have sold?

Sometimes I just like to look around and see other cues.


If you have deleted your pictures before, why did you do it?

For me, I can’t afford the cloud space, that’s why I be selling the cue.

A sold item is an agreement between parties which we really have no part in.

For a third party to claim some right to any of the details is fruitless.

I'm not picking up the tracks you're laying down? Not sure how a third party claim relates to this?

If I sell a cue, it's no longer mine to display so I mark the post sold and remove the links to pictures. I don't post images with AZ, the uploader blows


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

Seller's remorse.

Everytime the seller thinks of that cue, it saddens them. To see an actual photo brings tears.

Winning a race to nine with red, puffy eyes and a heavy heart ain't easy.

But the ability to understand the joke is apparently pretty expensive.

Ideologist Is Doing It The.Right Way. - 06-03-2019, 04:17 PM

Ideologist expressed a very reasonable and understandable rationale why and it makes sense.
Everyone just needs to realize that when you want to browse cues, go to the Cue Gallery Section.
If you want to see what cues are currently available for trade or purchase, go to the For Sale Section.
So until the Forum creates a new section, maybe name it “Recently Sold”, that’s just how things are.

The simple answer is a AZ Cue Registry that records the cue’s provenance down thru time and this
records the current owner of any registered cue, change of ownership history, purchase/sold price
would be optional since not everyone would want the price they paid revealed. Rather than rely upon
orig bill of sale, including the price paid would help any insurance claims, establish better insurance
standards, create a central data base & more useful information about cue values, and this could be
offered on a fee basis too x $ registration fee per cue. Heck, I’d pay a one time $10 a cue registration
or even say $1.00 to $1.50 per cue per annum. It could also be used to flag lost or stolen cues and a
new buyer of a prospective custom cue could verify the cue wasn’t stolen. Even a pawn shop could
easily double check before lending money on a cue. A lot of good could come from this plus the real
opportunity to develop a new business stream. In any event, Ideologist has the right approach to this.

If you have deleted your pictures before, why did you do it?
Interesting you ask.
I recently started doing it for a couple reasons;

It’s no longer my property, and if the new owner wants the picture posted they can do what they wish.

Not to long ago I had a cue for sell on this site, but ended up selling the cue to a buddy(guy 1) he in turn sold it to someone else(guy 2) and there was a problem with the sell (claims of it being warped). Now I had no part in that sell and when I handed it over to guy 1 it was exactly as advertised. The most recent buyer(guy 2) felt he got a bad deal and wanted a refund and after that didn’t work out with the guy 1, guy 2 did a search or somehow found my original thread and started harassing me because he thought I was guy 1 and screwed him over. After that I decided to delete all the info after the sell was complete.

I have also had people contact me about the price I have sold stuff for to see if they got a good deal or not.

I buy and sell a couple cues a year and over time have figured out it’s just better to delete all the info once the sell is final, usually a month or two after it’s delivered and the buyer is happy.

I make every effort possible to ensure my deals go as smoothly as possible and try and treat everyone as I would want to be treated, I’ve been screwed over on deals before and it’s not a pleasant feeling. But, once the item is out of my possession the new owner can do as they wish, sometimes (apparently) their deals don’t go well, and if the pics/thread is still up people always look for someone to blame. Deleting my threads saves me from having to tell someone that there is nothing I can do and being harassed.

That was my thought as well.
There are two parties in the sale, buyer and seller?

Anyone else would be a third party...one with no direct interest or benefit to add.

It isn't anyone else's business, other than the buyer's and the seller's and to try and assert some non-existent privilege to the deal is illogical.

Which is not a horrible case for the matter...

It would be nice if the OP could delete the entire thread after the sale is complete and the buyer agrees the description is accurate.

More than once I have seen original posts quoted, including the price, or worse something like "Man, you stole that cue for $500."
