    seems there is a limit on # of posting per week?

    But the others were because the image links did not work? I spent lot of time on this! Did you REALLY need to delete them? Why not send procedure to properly import images to post?

    This is frustrating!

    Are also going to delete this one?

    Your ads were deleted for two simple reasons, very clearly spelled out in the rules:

    1. You used some sort of photo tag that you might be able to see the pictures, but not QRZ users - so you essentially had NO PHOTOS. Photos are required in all For Sale ads. We STRONGLY suggest you use the QRZ "Upload a File" button in the lower right. My guess is you hosted your photos at some photo-hosting site and either their server has issues, or they disallow "hot linking". Either way, your ads had no photos. At first, maybe 3 or 4 of the ads had at least one photo still working but then they were gone. 100% of Swap Meet listings without a view-able photo are removed by the Moderators

    2. You may only list FIVE ads in a 7 day period. So any of the ads beyond 5 were removed. You had far more than five ads running.

    This is all in the QRZ Swapmeet rules.

    By all means reply back if you have further questions

    This is what ALL of your ads show up as - this means there are "no photos"

    This is not an ad - posts in "Swapmeet Talk" do not require photos (your thread was moved to "Swapmeet Talk")

    My SWAG is, the photo was on his PC and therefore, @VE2DX was the only one who could see it. When using an image host website (I prefer Flickr*), in order for everyone to see the image, you MUST paste the URL between "IMG" tags, like this:
    Code:
    [IMG]http://www.domain.com/image.jpg[/IMG]
    The main advantage is, you can use the image on more than one forum. I do. :)

    * Flickr allows me to organize images in sets/albums. When I upload an image, smaller versions are 'automagically' created, from the uploaded size, down to a tiny thumbnail size. Rather than post yuuge image(s) that viewers may not want to see, I sometimes "nest" a thumbnail image between "URL" tags:
    Code:
    [URL=http://www.domain.com/image.jpg][IMG]http://www.domain.com/thumbnail.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
    The effect is like this:
    [​IMG]
    (click thumbnail for yuuge image)
    The thumbnail is 100x100 pixels. The full-size image is 1500x1500 pixels. :)

    Regardless - if no image can be seen, the ad gets deleted.

    How you get it to be seen is up to you, as a user. Flickr is a good one - and there are many others I'm sure.

    But in the end, if no image? No ad.
