    Sales threads especially are unreadable as sellers tends to post huge, huge images (often with reviews), thus making the experience of finding other posts difficult.

    My suggestion is simple; put images in spoilers by default.

    Fuck that. No more images in sales threads. If your service can't hold its own without Lady Gaga and Dr. House playing wingman, maybe you shouldn't have a service.

    I think images are fine for sales threads and the other subforums.

    Size matters though and perhaps a limit on the size might be something to consider but hiding them in a spoiler or eliminating them all together is like telling Ford that they have to hide their video or cannot have video at all in a TV commercial.

    In original post, yes. But I'm talking about the other posts in the thread where sellers use 17 images per reply making it extremely difficult to scroll through reviews and comments.

    Edit: here's one example but with quotes - but same idea. Sellers re-use quotes and spam them making it difficult for me to find fresh and relevant comments.

    How about limiting the quote option for post not more old than 6 months? I mean thing can change literally everyday and there are seller quoting some reply from years ago of even from the staff member just to say "hey look at the staff reply we are cool!"

    I think max 2 images should be allowed.
    Filling it with images and reviews sucks!

    Maybe an option to disable/hide images on a per user basis would be an idea?

    That thread is absolutely ridiculous and should not be allowed. Dozens of screenshots spammed daily with websites and skype IDs all over everything? Here is the most recent page of @Parker2010 's thread, with his own responses blanked out. Absolutely fucking ridiculous, and a blatant attempt to control screen real estate to ensure reviews such as @yakuzaemme 's go completely unnoticed.

    You tell me how much real estate his spam takes up:

    Again, this is disgraceful and should not be allowed. I have no idea why this shit is allowed to continue.

    Precisely the reason for my suugestion which unfortunately didn't get enough responses to be noticed.

    With a tabbed thread you could have the daily promotional posts from the seller with all the copy/paste crap in one tab. The reviews could go in a separate tab so potential buyers can read completely uninterrupted.

    Maybe a third tab for all the "order placed" and "review copy please" posts

    Bet sellers stop copying their huge sales graphics continuously then!!!!

    Agree on truncation after a certain pixel length that can then be expanded in it's own window

    I'm not sure if that'll fix the problem sadly, as sellers do the same but with actual quotes of all the positive reviews.

    Perhaps hide images and only allow BST to quote posts once?
